Mitch and I met on a summer night when we were 16. We were introduced by a mutual soccer friend, when they came to my parents house to watch music videos. I stole his heart that night when I made him a Hot Pocket. We remained friends for the next 12 years until we became a couple.
What was the best memory of your wedding day?
There are two... I really loved driving around San Francisco in a Cable Car with our wedding party on our way to the venue. It was a ride full of tear inducing laughter with our best friends which helped calm our nerves.
We also both loved the ceremony. It was amazing to look around and see all of our family and friends in a room together to celebrate and support us. Me knees were shaking the whole time, Mitch fumbled part of his vows, but it didn't matter, we had everyone we loved in that room.
What would be some advice you would give to future couples as they plan their wedding day?
Enjoy the day! It is so easy to get stressed out over small details while planning, but on the wedding day, just let it all go, and have fun with everyone. We didn't even eat our cake, that's how fast the day will fly, so just enjoy it as much as you can.
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?
We went to Barcelona and then Paris for our honeymoon and it was amazing. We spend two weeks eating and drinking our way through both cities with no real agenda. Our favorite thing to do in both cities was to spend the day walking and purchasing food from markets or shops to then end up at a park for a picnic. It was a great way to do some people watching, while enjoying local food. Don't get us started on the pastries in Paris...
