Simon Wedding

About the Couple

Both Alexa and Matthew grew up in Owatonna MN. They met in high school during freshman homecoming when they were in the same group. They continued hanging out in this group of friends and here they are, now married! Alexa says “Matthew knew it was love at first sight!” They had been dating for 9 years before getting engaged. Whenever Matthew was asked when they were going to get engaged, his response was always “one of these years!” Finally in January of 2019, came their engagement.

Alexa teaches 2nd grade in Owatonna and Matthew is an insurance adjuster for Northstar Mutual and owns a landscaping business.

They enjoy spending time at the lake on the pontoon, being outdoors, going for walks, and playing with their two pups, Oakley and Lulu. They also enjoy playing volleyball, spending time with family and friends and playing/watching Aces baseball.

Their future plans are to enjoy their new life as husband and wife, start a family, and continue making memories together.

family and friends and the opportunities were endless. We loved the

rustic feel and the staff was so welcoming, accommodating and easy

to work with.”
