How Did Elizabeth Smart and Matthew Gilmour Meet?

In 2009, Smart and Gilmour met in Paris, where they served as missionaries. In an interview, Gilmour revealed that he did not know of Smart’s kidnapping adding, “I got to know her as she truly is. The thing that attracted me the most to her — at the beginning and now — is how confident she is, especially considering everything she has been through.”

Smart and Gilmour started as friends, but their friendship blossomed into a romantic one. After she visited him in Scotland, he traveled down to the U.S. to not only meet her family, but to ask their permission to marry her.

He proposed in January 2012, with a sapphire engagement ring on a hillside near Smart’s home. Talking about the proposal, Gilmour said, “I just said very simply, ‘Elizabeth Ann Smart, will you marry me? And then I wasn’t nervous.”

Smart’s family was very excited about their union, with her father saying, “They’ve been very happy together. We’re just thrilled, we’re looking forward to her moving on to this next stage and leading a very happy life.”

On February 18, 2012, Smart and Gilmour walked down the aisle in a ceremony on the north shore of Oahu, Hawaii. According to Smart, “Oahu is a very special place for me, very different than what I’m used to. I guess you could say it was kind of a refuge.”
