Matt and Chris are both from the outskirts of Philadelphia, attending rival high schools. Chris attending the prestigious Germantown Academy and Matthew attending Malvern “my dad drives a BMW” Prep. Chris and Matt met during the first weekend of college at the University of Virginia, living drastically different college lives. Chris and Matt reconnected in NYC after college, both working in finance, and have been best friends ever since.
Their main interests in common include being terrible at golf, and religiously following the Philadelphia Eagles. They share two greatest moments of their lives together (pre-wedding and birth of their own children), which include riding horses across the plains of Patagonia in Chile, and sitting on the 10 yard line at Lincoln Financial to witness the Eagles drub the Minnesota Vikings 38-7 in the NFC Championship.
Funny story about Matt becoming the best man, in ~2013 Matt had been in a long term relationship with his girlfriend and living in NYC. He found himself spending an increasing amount of time with Chris and Chris’ friends, so much that his girlfriend at the time gave him an ultimatum, to which she said “Chris or me.”
I don’t need to tell you who he choose.
