How did you meet each other?
David and I met each other in college, freshmen year, at the University of Northern Colorado. We lived on the same dorm floor. It was truly love at first site! We got to know eachother on our first date at both of our favorite restaurant, Casa Bonita. David had just had his wisdom teeth pulled but I still found him devilishly handsome! Though we had not been together for long, we knew we had found true love within the first year of us dating! Five years later we are still madly in love and now blessed enough to call each other husband and wife.
What was the best memory of your wedding day? The most beautiful memory we have of our wedding was the exchanging of our vows. We did this in private before the wedding. Our vows were written down in a letter to one another. David was blindfolded and we were brought together back to back to read our letters together. It was so special to feel each others presence while we reading and prepared to meet each other at the end of the aisle.
What would be some advice you would give to future couples as they plan their wedding day? Advice we would give any couple would be to allow and spend time really soaking everything in. It is such a beautiful time. Every single thing you do and plan is so special. We really took our time planning but spread it out over a year so that it was never too overwhelming. We had such a fun year getting everything ready together. We would also say to really make sure the day is about you. It is easy to stress or worry about your guests and everyone attending but that is not what matters. YOU are what matters that day!
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 stayed at a timeshare in La Romana, Dominican Republic. Although relaxing at our resort would have been more than enough, we got to do a couple activities. We did a zip line through the Dominican jungle which was so incredible! Along with that we got to experience monkeys jumping on us while we carried little bowls of fruit for them. It was an experience we will never forget! We would absolutely recommend the Dominican to couples. The weather is perfect and the people from there are so incredibly kind and caring.
