wedding meme

Wedding meme

I got this from Maren

1. Where/How did you meet? Bry was my older brothers best friend. I met him when I was sixteen at Bear Lake when he and my bro met up with us there for a camp out. He was sitting in the back of their truck in a lawn chair drinking a beer. I was not impressed.

2. How long have you known each other? Going on 21 years! Wow! That is a long time!

3. How long after you met did you start dating? Real dating? Just before my mission we had gone out a few times. He really liked me. I did not feel the same. It was after my mission, I had been home 2 years and it just clicked.

4. How long did you date before you were engaged? 1 day. Yep. It's true but we had known each other for a very long time. I just knew it was right.

5. How long was your engagement? Almost 2 months. We were going to have a longer one but we wanted my Mother to be at the wedding and she was dying from breast cancer. She missed it my 18 days.

6. How long have you been married? 12 years.

7. What is your anniversary? Our first anniversary is Feb 18, 1995. Our sealing anniversary is Feb 14, 2004.

8. How many people came to your wedding reception? To be honest, I don't know. It wasn't a huge one since my mom had just died and we had flown to Oregon to bury her and there just wasn't time or money to do a big one.

9. What kind of cake did you serve? Would you believe it if I told you that I can't remember all the flavors. I know part of it was spice cake. I love that.

10. Where was your wedding? At my sister's house in Bountiful. It was beautiful on the inside!

11. What did you serve for your meal? We did not have a meal! Is was a small reception with little snacks . They were good though.

12. How many people were in your wedding party? We didn't really have a wedding party. Just parents. I never have like that huge line thing. All my sisters were honorary bridesmaids though. Bry's brother was his best man.

13. Are you still friends with them all? I certainly hope so!

14. Did your spouse cry during the ceremony? Yes he did! Isn't he great! He cried when I sang to him!

15. Most special moment of your wedding day?I think it was when I sang for him. It was so....I don't know, I can't describe it. I sang "For You" by John Denver. The words are so beautiful.

16. Any funny moments? I can't think of any at the moment. We were married by my student ward bishop who I adored and he was so fun. He made it really good.

17. Any big disasters? Nope. It all went smoothly. I loved walking down the isle with my Dad. I cried at that point.

18. Where did you go on your honeymoon? We went a a bed and breakfast for a couple of days and then in July, we went to Alaska for a week. That was wonderful!

20. If you were to do your wedding over... I would change nothing. I loved it. It was perfect.

21. What side of the bed do you sleep on?Right now, I am on the left side but I have slept on both throughout our marriage.

22. What size is your bed? It's a king size and I LOVE it. It's a big heavy log bed that I can hardly move by myself!

23. Greatest strength as a couple? We support each other completely. I adore him and he adores me.

24. Greatest challenge as a couple? Agreeing on fun things to do. We are total opposites in our interests.

25. Who literally pays the bills? He earns the money, I pay the bills. I just do in online. Fast and easy. He doesn't care how I spend the money. He figures I know how much there is and that's it. It works.

26. What is your song? "She drives me crazy" I know it sounds like a joke but that's our song.

27. What did you dance your first dance to? I don't remember. It is like pulling teeth to get him to dance!

28. Describe your wedding dress: You can see it here. I rented it and I loved it. I felt like a queen for a day.

29. What kind of flowers did you have at your wedding? Roses mostly. I love all kinds though.

30. Are your wedding bands engraved? No. Bry doesn't even wear his. In his line a work it's actually dangerous to. I keep it in my jewelry box.

31. How old were you when you got married? I was 24 and he was 31

Tagging anyone who wants to join the fun.
