When reading Kristin and Matt Lashoff‘s love story (bridging New York, Canada, Switzerland and Nashville) one can’t help think fairytale, but we assure you it’s real, amazing and totally romantic. A St. Louis native, Kristin was living and working in NYC as an associate producer of The People’s Choice Awards in 2009. Kristin’s friend Michelle, a professional photographer in NYC, arranged a blind date for Kristin to meet Matt, her upstate NY home town friend. Matt and Kristin clicked. Matt was a professional hockey player for Tampa at the time, and spent the next year in a long distance relationship with Kristin. In April of 2010 Kristin left her job in NYC to join Matt in Toronto, Canada for the next hockey season after he was traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs. On March 9, 2012, Matt and Kristin became proud parents of baby Ryder, born in Toronto. The next month, Matt proposed to Kristin at Casa Loma, a castle in the middle of Toronto with Ryder present to witness the proposal!
Kristin and Matt flew to Music City to check out Historic Cedarwood as a possible Nashville wedding venue. Matt is also a professional musician with a newly released CD, “Living on Heart” so Nashville was an ideal spot for his marriage to Kristin. They fell in love with the natural beauty and relaxed elegance of our historic farm and secured a date with Cedarwood! Kristin called shortly after with news that Matt was signing with a professional team in Switzerland and they would live abroad during the upcoming hockey season. Concerned about planning her wedding from across the Atlantic, we assured Kristin it would be no problem at Cedarwood! How cool is it that Michelle Lange, friend and matchmaker, served both as Bridemaid AND wedding photographer!

A remarkable love story and beautiful couple! Congratulations Kristin and Matt (and baby Ryder!) Thanks for leaving part of yourselves in Cedarwood’s legacy of love. Thanks Michelle Lange Photography for sharing your work. We are impressed!
