How did you meet each other?
We had mutual friends, so we all went to Great American Beer Fest together, super romantic right? I think we had 200 drinks each. Ben got my number, and waited a couple of weeks to actually ask me out, and we went to a Haunted House for our first date on Halloween.
What was the best memory of your wedding day?
One of my best memories is when we were leading our Second Line parade to our reception. I was so relieved it didn't rain and that I didn't goof up my vows! It was so awesome for us to turn around and see literally EVERYONE that was important in our lives marching with us down the street! I was for sure ready to party at that point, and all my stress was gone!(Kelly)
My best memory of our wedding day was the moment when the doors to our ceremony (that my dad and I had painstakingly labored over at Kelly's behest) swung open to reveal my beautiful bride walking down the aisle and knowing that our moment had finally arrived and that we could relax and enjoy the rest of our big day, and it was certainly one to remember!

What would be some advice you would give to future couples as they plan their wedding day?
I would say to really enjoy the process. Sometimes it can be a little stressful, but once it's over- that's it! You actually end up missing planning for it. Also- make a decision and move on, you can only go over different shades of purple so many times.
Where did you go on your honeymoon?
We have not gone yet- but we are going to Costa Rica in February for two weeks!! We waited because we really wanted to go to Costa Rica, but winter has better weather. However, we wanted to get away after the wedding for a little bit, so we did a "Mini-Moon" in Steamboat Springs. I would recommend going somewhere so you don't feel like it's just life back to normal. Also, we were so exhausted after the wedding, if you are doing a honeymoon right away, i would at least plan for a day in between. I don't know how we would have traveled too far and done anything for at least two days!
