Tell us a little about you and your beloved: Scott and I have known each other for 13 years, he was a friend of my brothers’. After dating briefly in high school, we went our separate ways to different colleges. It is truly fitting that we reconnected on the soccer field five years later. Amazingly enough, the chemistry was still there! We started dating again and never looked back. As a matter of fact, we got married on our three year anniversary
What was the most amazing part of your day? The most amazing part of our day was when we exchanged vows. We each decided to write our own vows, and Scott’s vows were the most amazing words I have ever heard.
What else would you like to share about your big day? Since our wedding destination was a six hour drive from home, we decided to have a local reception a week after the wedding. This was the best decision we made. Not only were we able to celebrate with much more people, all the nerves were gone and we were able to really party!
