Katie's best friend insisted that Matt and Katie go on a date. Katie knew it was love at first sight. She told her friends immediately after their date that she was going to marry this man. After dating about a year, they were on a vacation in Mexico. One evening they had dinner plans at the resort. As they were walking past all of the places to eat dinner, Katie was a little confused. Matt looked over and asked "do you trust me?" She said "yes" and they continued to walk down to the beach where Matt had coordinated a romantic dinner. Katie was surprised and later admitted she thought to herself "if he doesn't propose to me tonight, I don't know how he's going to top this when he does." By the end of their romanic evening Matt had proposed in true "Bachelor in Paradise" style. Katie said "Yes!" and was ecstatic that she was going to be marrying her one true love.
