How did you meet each other? We met working at an outdoor science school in the woods of Southern California.
What was the best memory of your wedding day? This is really hard, getting married was absolutely amazing. Dan's favorite memory was just after the ceremony was done and we were officially married. Well that, or getting lifted in the chairs. Michelle's favorite memory was sitting down for dinner together, looking around and seeing all of our friends and family. But really the whole day was unforgettable.
What would be some advice you would give to future couples as they plan their wedding day? Don't worry about the food too much, your not going to eat it. The people you invited, your friends and family, are the most important part of the wedding 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 went to Kauai, Maui, Oahu, and the Big Island of Hawaii. The whole trip was amazing, but the highlights included snorkeling, whale watching, a helicopter tour, mountain biking down a 11,000 foot volcano, driving convertibles, seeing the glow of lava at night, and just general hiking and exploring the beaches and jungle.
We also went to the South island of New Zealand where we kayaked, saw dolphins jump and fur seals play, saw numerous glaciers and fjords, went backpacking, canyoneering, mountain biking, caving, and wine and beer tasting.
We stayed mostly in vacation rentals in Hawaii and then rented a campervan for New Zealand. Definitely would recommend both places for a honeymoon
