How did you meet each other?
We met as biology lab partners in high school, and rekindled a friendship when we took a bunch of Spanish classes together in college, but we didn't start dating until we were both out of college and living and teaching in Colorado Springs.
What was your favorite memory from your wedding day?
We didn't do a first look, so seeing each other for the first time at the altar was a wonderful and emotional moment.
Do you have any advice for future couples?
Remember that this day is about making a lifelong commitment to each other, and even if something "goes wrong" or doesn't work out as you planned, it won't be a big deal on the day. You will be so happy and so excited that you probably won't care about that one little detail. Enjoy the day, and try to take it all in. And make sure you put someone responsible in charge of keeping track of all the groomsmen's clothes so you aren't searching for pants 20 minutes before the ceremony.
Where did you go on your honeymoon? What activities did you do?
We began our honeymoon in Newport, Rhode Island at the Castle Hill Inn for a couple nights, and then visited Plymouth, Concord, Boston, and Salem, Massachusetts. We relaxed, rode bikes along the cliffside, golfed twice, enjoyed local 'chowda,' lobster, and other treats at great local restaurants, enjoyed a harbor cruise in Salem, visited Orchard House, Walden Pond, and Author's Row, and had a wonderful time. We loved having a non-traditional honeymoon, and we think that a New England honeymoon in the fall was just delightful. The weather was perfectly cool, so we could enjoy spending time in a cozy hotel room with the fire burning in the fireplace, and it was pleasant to walk around town to see the sights.
