We encourage all of our out of town guests to either stay at the Vinoy Renaissance hotel or a nearby hotel (listed in the accommodations section) to enjoy the group rates and be close by for all the festivities!
We anticipate that most of our out of town guests will fly into the Tampa airport.
Several days later, despite knowing that the game could get quite intense, Matt invited Geneva over to meet his friends and to watch his alma mater, FSU, play Auburn in the 2014 national championship game. Even better, Matt and Geneva hit it off and the rest is history!
Just a few weeks prior to their meeting, Geneva had accepted a job offer in Jacksonville, FL.
Ultimately, Geneva decided to specialize in Spinal Cord Injury Medicine and moved to Miami to attend a fellowship program through the University of Miami in 2013....
Matt was born in New York and moved to the greater Tampa Bay area when he was 6 years old.Once there, Matt climbed upon the breaker wall and asked Geneva to join him.Geneva turned down the request, stating she had on a dress and couldn't possibly get up on the wall.Matt and Geneva met on an evening out in Miami (January 3, 2014 to be precise).Matt had friends in town for the upcoming Florida State University (FSU) national championship game.Geneva had plans to be out of town but (as fate would have it) her flight was cancelled due to inclement weather anywhere north of Florida.
