Down the Aisles

Ok, so I went here and got this little survey. I thought it would be fun. Here are my answers. I want to read your answers as well, so make sure you leave me a message to let me know you have completed your survey!! Have fun!

1. Where did you meet your husband?
We had a mutual friend. Matt, that introduced us. I worked with him and Scott lived next him.
2. What was the first thing you said to your husband?
Ha..This is a funny one. 3 of my friends and I were meeting Matt and some of his friends to go out for the evening. Once we got to the apartment building I called Matt to find out which apartment was his. Scott answered the phone "Talk to me". To which I replied, "AH..can I speak to Matt?" I heard him in the back ground say "Hey Matt, I think it's your mom"...Nice start, huh?
3. Where was your first date?
Man...I suck... I don't remember!! I am sure it was dinner at Outback or Chili's or something like that. I'll call Scott....Whew...He doesn't remember either!! But if you remember from this post, you will recall that things didn't go so well for us in the beginning!
4. Where was your first kiss?
On the dance floor at "The Wharehouse", a dance club in Raleigh. (no longer there)
5. Did you have a long or short engagement/courtship?
We dated for a year living a hour away from each other. Then we moved in together. We lived in sin for a year before he proposed to me, then a year engagement before the wedding!
6. Where did you get engaged?
Walking along the edge of a lake. There is actually a lot more to the engagement story but that is a blog post of its own. (This was Michele's answer, but mine is the exact same. In fact, I did blog about it here.)
7. Where did you get married?
We were married at a Bed and Breakfast called The Preston Woodall House. It was absolutely perfect. Our reception, get this, was at Rum Runners, a dueling piano bar! The bar is divided into two different sections. We had the back part private all night and the piano bar was private until 10pm! We had our own private show for 3 hours!
8. Any disasters during the special day?
You know, I can't think of any!
9. Most special moment of your wedding day?
I came into our relationship with two children. Scott and his family have always treated them like their own family! We had a family medallion ceremony in our wedding where Scott presented Chris and Jessica with a Family Medallion necklace.
10. The song from your first dance?
Well, like I said, our reception was at a dueling piano bar, so I am sure it was something inappropriate!
11. If you were to do your wedding over, what would you change?
