How did you two meet each other?
We met each other through mutual friends and had been friends before we decided dating. I was definitely the one pursing him. One day he asked me to go on a date to the zoo. We walked around and enjoyed some lunch. After lunch he pulled a fortune cookie out of his pocket. Inside it read "Will you be my girlfriend?" To this day I still have that little slip of paper. When he proposed to me he set up a scavenger hunt which led me to many places we had visited on dates, the Denver Zoo was one of the stops :)
The best and most emotional memory the day of my wedding was the rainbow that appeared right before the ceremony. The sky was gray and rain was pouring down. Things were not looking good, as we had planned an outdoor ceremony. After raining for about half an hour, a huge rainbow appeared across the sky, right over the Lake House. This touched me because one of my Grandmas passed away several years ago. Her favorite song was "Somewhere Over the Rainbow." She always has a way of showing she is there, wether it be the song playing on the radio or her appearing in the sky. I knew it was her, she would never miss my wedding day!
I think the best advice we can give to future couples when planning their wedding is not to stress. I know it sounds cliche but seriously, there were so many things the day of our wedding that did not goes as planned or were not exactly what we had originally wanted, but the entire day was so beautiful and perfect. There is not one thing we would go back and change. It seems like such a big deal when planning that everything is perfect, but the day of it doesn't really matter. We couldn't take our eyes off of each other and couldn't help but smile all night, it was as if no one else was there and nothing else mattered.
We haven't gone on our honeymoon yet because McKenah started her nursing program 5 days after the wedding. So instead we leave on December 31st for a 17 day trip to Thailand! While we are there we will be visiting Koh Samui, Bangkok, Phuket, Ko Phi Phi, and Chang Mai! We are beyond excited for this adventure and plan on riding elephants through the jungle, attending the Full Moon Party, scuba diving, and immersing ourselves into a brand new culture!
