How did you two meet?
We met in a tanning salon in 2008. I was working there and after a few weeks of Alex coming in to tan, I slid my number under his door while tanning. He called me that night. Now almost 7 years later, that was the best decision I ever made!
What was the best memory from your wedding day?
The Best memory of our wedding day was seeing each other for the first time that day! As soon as the doors opened and we saw each other it's like everything went into slow motion and there was no one else around except Alex and I. I will never forget that feeling!
Do you have any advice for future couples?
Some advice I would pass on to other couples as they plan their big day is don't sweat the small stuff and enjoy every second of that day because it comes and goes so fast!!
Where did you go on your honeymoon?
We went to Maui for our honeymoon! We stayed at the Aston Kaanapali Shores and loved it. We had stayed there once before and knew we like the location, beach and everything else they had to offer! We were there for Alex's Birthday and the 4th of July. We snorkeled and saw sea turtles. We also did a sunset dinner cruise where we saw dolphins. (That was my favorite!)

How did you meet each other?

 We first met on August 15, 2008 at the Monte Vista Fire Station, a local college bar, on a night out with our individual group of friends. After one ridiculously high bar tab, a “blind” date the following week at Stone Face Tavern (where Randy was running at least 30 minutes late), and 6 years later we are married!

 What was the best memory of your wedding day?

 Katie: When I think about our wedding, the memory that will always put a smile on my face is the garter toss! The song was “You’re the one that I want” from the movie Grease. Randy tore off his tuxedo jacket and danced around me to the beginning part that starts out, "I've got chills". Everyone thought it was rehearsed, and all our guests were laughing so much. Randy is not a person that would rehearse, so I was definitely surprised! His sense of humor demonstrated by this impromptu “show” basically sums up Randy's funny outgoing personality which is one of the many reasons I fell in love with him.

 Randy: Picking one particular moment for me is tough. When I first saw Katie in her wedding dress, walking down the aisle I was blown away. After the ceremony sharing laughs with both wedding parties and our immediate families while taking photos before the dinner and reception was intimately special. The dinner was the best wedding / buffet food I have ever had, and the best man’s speech was hilarious. Dancing with Katie our first dance as husband and wife was a rush of emotion. Partying with all of our friends and family on the roof top of the castle was awesome. I can’t say I had one particular favorite moment from the wedding as a whole, but I had a collection of favorite memories I will cherish for a lifetime.

 What would be some advice you would give to future couples as they plan their wedding day?

 Katie: Start planning early. It makes it so much easier to enjoy the day when everything is planned ahead of time. I think we had most of the wedding details finalized a month before the big day. Also, remember why you’re getting married. All the little things might not be perfect the day of the wedding. Then you look over at the person you’re marrying, and it’s easy to just forget about those details, smile (really big), and have a great time!

 Randy: Be patient with each other and remember that nothing is perfect, even your wedding day. Girls, don’t get so caught up in the planning that you forget to actually enjoy spending that time planning with your soon to be husband, and guys don’t be too critical or fast to judge or shoot down her ideas. Focus on enjoying every part of the planning and wedding day itself, as both will fly by far too fast.

 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?  

 Since Denver was a destination wedding for us, we spent a lot of time traveling back and forth between where we live (New Mexico) for all the wedding vendor meetings. We chose to lay low for our honeymoon and get caught up on sleep! We spent two extra days in downtown Denver. We rented a suite in the Crown Plaza and just enjoyed each other’s company at a few local establishments around downtown. We plan to celebrate our first wedding anniversary with a trip somewhere, and a summer vacation next June sounds perfect!
