Iris and Keith almost seemed to have the “love at first sight” connection and appeared to be comfortable with being with each other almost immediately.

“I am feeling sparks,” Iris said. “It feels like we’re old souls having a reunion.”

“There was a chemistry there and a connection there that I was not ready for,” Matt said. “We can support each other and it means the world to me.”

At the reception, it was time for Matt to dance with his mom. The DJs apparently didn’t know his family didn’t come, as they repeatedly announced for his mother to come up, which was upsetting to him. At the last minute, Amber’s mom stepped up and filled in the role.

“I’m feeling overwhelmed with emotion, I’m trying not to cry,” Amber said. “I’m so so glad that she did that because he needed that, and it’s not fair that his mom’s not here. … I’m so glad my mom stepped in. We had a lot of ups and downs, and this was the biggest up we’ve ever had.”

Deonna and Greg Work Through the Awkwardness

Deonna and Greg hit it off, but that didn’t mean it felt natural for them to be together just after a few hours. Plus, the fact that Deonna hasn’t been in a relationship in 10 years just made it so much weirder.

“It’s a weird balance of comfort and discomfort,” Greg said. “From my point of view, it seemed like the chemistry was there.”

When it came to the dance, that’s when it was really uncomfortable, but they decided to use that as a stepping stone in their relationship.

“The first dance with my wife is pretty awkward,” Greg continued. “There’s a lot of laughter and I think we’re just building the connection that way.”

Married At First Sight (produced by Kinetic Content) airs on Lifetime Wednesdays at 8:30 p.m. ET.
