How did you meet each other?
We initially met at a mutual friend's birthday party. A week and a half later we ran into each other again and went on our first date three days later.
What was the best memory of your wedding day?
When Bruno Mars' "I Think I Wanna Marry You" song came on. Everyone crowded around us as we danced. It was such a fun and neat moment that we will never forget!
What would be some advice you would give to future couples as they plan their wedding day?
Try to look at the big picture. The most important part is that you and your fiance are getting married and that's all that matters. Yes, you want everyone to have a good time and to make it your own, but don't sweat the small stuff.
Where did you go on your honeymoon? Where did you stay and what were a couple activities you enjoyed. Would you recommend to other couples?
Panama. We stayed in Panama City for two days at the Hotel Bristol. The hotel experience was amazing. We saw the Panama Canal and walked around Casco Viejo, which is their 'old town'. We went to the beach for the rest of the time and stayed at RIU Playa Blanca. It was a beautiful location and nice hotel. I would definitely recommend vacationing in Panama. The people are so friendly, the country is amazing and the climate and landscape are beautiful.
