How did you meet each other? We met in high school and dated from junior year through college. We went separate ways for a couple of years after college but were inevitably back together after running into one another on St Patrick’s Day of 2012. We knew for sure that we were meant to be and have been together nearly everyday since. We quickly bought a house, got engaged and started making plans for our future together.
What was the best memory from your wedding day? We have 2 favorite memories. The first is walking down the isle. This was the first time we saw each other because we didn't do a first look. So many emotions go through you in that moment. Everyone around you is blurred, you don't notice any noise. It's just the two of you connecting at a level you've never felt before. Our other favorite memory is all the stories that were told over dinner by our bridesmaids and groomsmen during toasts. We were laughing, crying and feeling SO loved. We were overwhelmed with support, and could feel an amazing bond of love and friendships from all of our favorite people. What would be some advice you would give to future couples? Cody: Listen to your bride to be and start planning early, it can take some of the stress out of the process. Also, hire a day of coordinator. Bre: Be organized! I was probably overboard with my charts, printouts, and mock tables, but it really ensures that your day goes exactly how you want it. I concur..... hire a day of coordinator. It takes the stress away and lets you enjoy what the day is all about! Where did you go on your honeymoon? Would you recommend it to others? We honeymooned in the Dominican Republic, Punta Cana. We stayed at the Bavoro Princess and it was absolutely wonderful. The weather was amazing, the beaches were the most beautiful we had ever seen and the people were extremely nice and accommodating. Relaxing together on the beach everyday was perfect and never got old. We did do several activities. Our favorites were the Catamaran and Coco Bongo. We went on a Catamaran boat tour that took us fishing, snorkeling, and to a private island. They cooked us fresh fish and lobster, taught us all about the Dominican culture, and brought us to a sand bar party. We also saw a show at Coco Bongo. The performers were amazing and we had a blast.
