How did you meet each other?
Byron and I went to Drake together... we became friends senior year, but didn't stay in touch after college, until Byron went to visit a mutual friend of ours and we reconnected via text-- the rest is history!
What was the best memory of your wedding day?
Byron cracking jokes during the ceremony and my inability to hold in a laugh; the dancing at the reception was pretty epic too!
What would be some advice you would give to future couples as they plan their wedding day?Don't sweat the small stuff! The day flies by and you won't even notice if everything is exactly as you planned it. When we walked around to greet people, people weren't sitting at their assigned tables-- we didn't care! Just enjoy being engaged; easier said than done, I know!
Where did you go on your honeymoon?
We went to Koh Samet and Bangkok,Thailand; Hong Kong and Tokyo, Japan
We stayed at an amazing resort in Koh Samet called Ao Prao and then Air BnBs the rest of the honeymoon. We would definitely recommend it to other couples-- it was quite the adventure, but it was wonderful to explore those places together
