PEOPLE: Matt Fraser & Alexa Papigiotis Married!

Alexa Papigiotis and Matt Fraser are married.

Matt Fraser and Alexa Papigiotis are officially husband and wife.  The psychic medium and his bride, who are featured on E!’s Meet the Frasers, tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in Palm Beach, Florida on Saturday.  Scroll through to see all the photos from their “magical” day

Fraser, 30, and Papigiotis, 23, met in January 2017, when her messaged her on Instagram asking her out to coffee — a very “21st century” love story, they told PEOPLE.

Over two years later, in May 2019, he popped the question and the pair got engaged.

Their nuptials were originally scheduled for February but, like many other couples over the past two years, they delayed the date due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Fraser said the postponement was a blessing in disguise. “It allowed us to give everyone time to get vaccinated,” he said. “But then at the same time, you need every minute that you can to plan and to prep — it’s literally taken us two years to plan this wedding.”

About 93 friends and family members were in attendance for the ceremony and party at the historic Henry Morrison Flagler Museum in Palm Beach.

The venue was originally built as a wedding gift for the owner’s wife in 1902. “We’re literally getting married inside of a wedding gift,” Fraser said of the “breathtaking” waterfront location.

Papigiotis said the museum location made for a “magical” day. “It is the most amazing place — we could not have picked anywhere better. It’s so romantic, it’s charming, it’s magical,” the former Miss Rhode Island Teen USA said. “Every time we’re on the grounds, it just feels like you’re in a movie.”

The bride said the design and decorations were true to their “extra” selves, with plenty of gold and glittery accents, as well as a “humongous” light-up sign of their last name.

The event also featured various personal touches. When guests arrived, a string quartet played a song from Beauty and the Beast in honor of Papigiotis’ love of Disney, and later on, a cappuccino cart marked Fraser’s love of coffee.

In addition to cake, the duo served up McDonald’s Happy Meals to each of their guests at the end of the night — an homage to their mutual love of junk food.

As for their outfits, the couple said a lot of thought went into their wedding looks. “We love fashion so what we’re all wearing and looking like as a bridal party was very important to us,” Papigiotis said

Fraser went “classic” with a black tuxedo, while his groomsmen wore complimentary white tuxes.

Papigiotis, meanwhile, stunned in a lace-adorned gown, which she made sure Fraser didn’t see until their first look just before the ceremony. Her bridal party, composed of all family members, wore one-shoulder black dresses and elegant opera gloves.

Papigiotis told PEOPLE the first look was what she was most looking forward to about the wedding. “I got my gown a year and a half ago and I was never able to tell him what it looks like — he has no idea what I’m going to look like on that day,” she said ahead of the ceremony. “So I’m just so excited to see him for that first time and have a really intimate moment together before we see everybody else.”

Next up, Fraser and Papigiotis will be jetting off to Barbados for their honeymoon.

Once they return, they said they both agree that kids are the next step for their relationship.

“We are ready for kids,” Papigiotis said. “We are so excited. We’re going to, God willing, start trying right away, and we are just so excited to make our own little family and raise children together. That is our top priority for married life.”

PUBLISHED: | UPDATED:

 

For Matt Fraser, the pandemic pause brought a little more quiet than usual — from the voices inside his head.

 

Without live appearances, the celebrity psychic medium from Rhode Island and hosts of E!’s “Meet the Frasers” adjusted to not having the deceased pop up in day-to-day circumstances.

 

“There’s always that background noise of hearing people who have died,” the exuberant Fraser notes by phone. “So when the pandemic happened and my fiancée and I  were stuck in the house, for the first time in a long time I didn’t hear anybody. It was so different, like the whole world was quiet.

 

“It was a definitely a culture shock, a different way to live. At the beginning it was kind of nice … but also very sad. I felt like I had lost a piece of me for a while.”

 

Fraser did exercise his “gift,” which he attributes to his mother and grandmother, during the time off, mostly via virtual readings that were attended by people from around the world as well as “mini teachings” about the afterlife on Facebook. He also wrote a new book based on questions he’s often asked, and he has another TV project in the works.

 

And this weekend he gets back to live readings. His engagement at the MotorCity Casino (rescheduled twice) will be Fraser’s first in-person event, as well as the venue’s.

 

“I’m really really excited,” says Fraser, who was making three live appearances per week before the pandemic. “This is really my favorite thing to do, being with people and helping connect them with their loved ones. Being able to be in front of people again is just … I think I’m going to be more excited than the audience is.”

Detroit — Psychic medium Matt Fraser wants to bring peace of mind to the residents of Detroit, one lost loved one at a time.

“I feel drawn to come, because I want to bring peace,” said Fraser. “People need to realize, especially with the pandemic and all these things happening, that we need to come together.”

Fraser will be performing Sunday at Motor City Casino, the first live entertainment being held at the Sound Board Theater since the pandemic shutdown.

As the star of the television series,”Meet the Frasers” on E!, Fraser explores his personal life alongside his family and pageant girlfriend Alexa’s family, taking viewers to the other side of his day-to-day experiences.

“Instead of all the readings and the things you see on TV, it brings people behind the scenes of my life, and get to know me, to get to know my family, and I thought that was pretty cool,” Fraser told The Detroit News over the phone ahead of the live show.

You’re Never Alone

You’re Never Alone

When I was growing up, I was really sensitive. I felt different from the other kids, and the fact that I could see and hear dead people didn’t help! When I needed to feel like everything was going to be okay, my grandmother was there with that special “grandma love” that’s like nothing else. The fact that she was also a medium was a big plus, because she could understand what I was going through.

My grandma passed when I was really young, but love like that never dies, and the fact that she was no longer alive wasn’t going to keep her away from her grandson. She often visited me at night, giving me that same sense of comfort and love that she had when she was alive.

To this day, I still feel a special soul-connection with my grandmother, and it’s a source of comfort to me whenever I feel stressed and overwhelmed.

2020 has been a crazy year, and we’re barely halfway through it. It’s times like this when you crave the presence of the special people in your life – living and dead.

During COVID 19 you might be wondering if loved ones in Heaven are watching over you. The answer is YES! Souls in Heaven are tuned into your energy, so when life is challenging, emotional and scary they draw closer, keeping an eye on things and sending you love.

Sometimes it’s hard to feel their presence, especially when you’re distracted by everything that’s going on.

I’ve heard a lot of people talk about feeling alone right now, and I wanted to do something to remind you that your loved ones are with right there with you and watching over you.

But what could I do?

Live events are not an option, and posting videos on Facebook or YouTube is great (I do that too), but I wanted something more…

My team and I started looking into offering LIVE online group readings. In the beginning we weren’t sure it would work.

My team was a little skeptical, “Matt do you really think your gift will work this way?”

Honestly, I didn’t know. Some of my best readings have been over the phone or on video – I know I don’t have to be in person to connect, but those were always private readings. I didn’t know what would happen when doing it LIVE with a group of people.

On the other hand, I could sense that so many people needed to connect with loved ones on the other side that I would not be able to help all the people who needed me if I stuck to individual readings.

So we decided to host our first live virtual event a few weeks ago, and something amazing happened… It worked so well!

As soon as  the audience started to tune in and their webcams turned on, I didn’t just see their faces, but I also saw their loved ones in spirit standing with them on camera.

Amazing! Just like at a LIVE event message after message, soul after soul, started to come through with messages of healing. I should have realized that even though we may be socially distant we’re still connected energetically – and  emotionally.

After the event, the feedback was so good!

People got so much comfort from hearing all the readings and realizing that their loved ones were right there too. Even if they didn’t receive a message they loved connecting with spirit and the afterlife together and learning about the other side.

So, are you ready to experience something healing, comforting, and AMAZING?

If you would like to join me for an online group reading, you can sign up for one here. To make it even more special your family can attend with you and all you need is one ticket. Just make sure they are sitting with you on camera.

It doesn’t matter where you live and you don’t need any fancy technology. All you need is a tablet, computer or a smartphone to be able to join.

I believe, the more that you learn about Heaven, the more that you learn that your loved ones are not far away. That’s exactly why I want to share my gift with you.

I hope that by attending an event with me, you’ll feel closer than ever to the people you love. I hope it helps you to open yourself up to sensing and feeling spirit and tuning into their special loving vibration!

I hope to see your face, and the faces of your loved ones in Heaven, on my computer screen during my next online event!

 

 

Shielding Your Sensitive Soul

Shielding Your Sensitive Soul

Believe it or not, some people have mixed emotions when it comes to mediumship. 

On one hand, they desperately want to be connected with a loved one who has passed – but at the same time, they worry that opening the door to the other side is asking for trouble. 

I try to reassure them that they shouldn’t worry! 

My mom always says that dead people can never hurt you – it’s the living people who you have to be afraid of. 

I know firsthand that my mom is 100% right about this, but I can see how the idea of souls reaching out to connect with the living can freak some people out. My own father still swears he’s “scared of dead people!”

First thing to remember is that light cancels out darkness. 

People who are naturally tuned in to spirit are sometimes reluctant to really develop their spirit connection. They worry that doing so might open up a portal that will allow evil spirits to come through. Should they worry? 

The simple answer is no. Most spirits mean no harm, and it’s pretty easy to avoid the bad ones. If you’re coming from a place of light and love, you will attract light. It’s that simple!

Your own positive energy is way more powerful than darkness.

Protect yourself from negative souls and people. 

Even though dark spirits can’t harm you when your own energy is positive, there are a few things you can do to give yourself a little extra protection. 

Remember how my mom said that the only people you have to fear are the living? Well, these psychic protection techniques help with negative souls and also negative people here on Earth! 

Here are a few basic techniques you can use to protect your energy from any kind of darkness that you might encounter:

– Imagine a mirrored wall around you, forming a wall and reflecting negative energy away from you. 

– Get to know your angels and guides and call upon them to protect you.

– Clear stagnant energy out of any living space that feels uncomfortable to you by burning sage. It really works!

– Take a few steps to infuse spaces that are new to you with your own energy. I like to personalize hotel rooms by putting a photo of Alexa and our two cats on the nightstand, and by playing some of my favorite disco tunes. 

Nature is a very powerful force – so when all else fails, open the windows and let the sunshine and fresh air in. It is a natural way to clear energy. 

Extra sensitive? Develop your personal protection plan. 

Psychics, mediums, and other spiritually tuned-in people usually develop their own ways of  safeguarding their energy to protect themselves from negative forces and people. 

If you’re a sensitive soul, or if you’re at a place in your life where you’re experiencing a lot of draining negativity or “bad vibes,” I can help you develop your own personal force field of psychic protection.  

My special audio seminar, Psychic Protection for Everyday Life can help provide the energetic “shield” you need, in about an hour!

You’ll learn how to:

      Use psychic protection to protect your home, workplace, family members, and personal property from negativity.

      Rid yourself of negativity that has been holding you back.

      Banish the fear so you can use your own intuition and spiritual gifts to improve your life. 

We all want to feel safe and protected. Now more than ever, it’s easy to let negativity slip into your life – that’s why I created Psychic Protection for Everyday LifeJoin me and see how much better it is to live in the light!
