How did you meet each other? AJ and I met through our friends Shane and KP, who were our best man and matron of honor. We first met at bingo. I remember that AJ made me laugh throughout the whole evening. We then saw each other several times while KP and Shane were planning their own wedding. Then at their wedding AJ made his move and it's been history ever since.
What was your favorite memory from your wedding day? The moment of the first look was very special. I loved seeing the look on AJ's face when he saw me in my dress the first time. My favorite fun moment was dancing with my brother and cousins as we busted out some old school favorite moves. Especially when my brother treated us to his white boy dance! AJ's favorite moment was our first dance. AJ picked out our song that he wanted us to waltz to. It was Jason Mraz's I Won't Give Up. So we took a dance lesson and we managed to waltz at least halfway through the song!
Do you have any advice for future couples?
My best piece of advice would be for each of you to pick one thing that is really important to you, whether it be the food, the cake, the dress etc, and spend a little more money in that area. Everything else you can skimp a little.
Where did you go on your honeymoon? What activities did you do? We first spent a few days at the Highland Haven Creekside Inn in their Tree House Suite. We enjoyed exploring the local area including a scenic drive to Aspen. We then headed to the Caribbean for a week long cruise stopping at Cozumel, Grand Cayman and Jamaica. Our favorite activity was swimming with the stingrays at Grand Cayman's Stingray City.
