How Long has it been since your wedding?
Approaching 2 years!

What is your best advice for brides-to-be?
At the risk of sounding completely shallow, let me say this: Even if everything else goes perfectly, you will not have a good time at your wedding if you don’t like the way you look. Do as many hair and makeup trials as it takes, and find a killer seamstress!

What is your best memory from your wedding?
Seeing the ceremony we wrote together be carried out in front of all our family and friends. And also, does the honeymoon count?

How IS married life? Any Advice for surviving the first year?
Married life is so much better than engaged life because there’s no more wedding to plan! :) The first year isn’t as hard as everyone says. Ours has been amazing – a move back home to Chicago, new jobs, a new house, a sweet puppy and tons of great times. I loved having a lot more free time on my hands to spend with my husband and pick up new hobbies.

Do you have any NEWS you want to share (pets, jobs, moves, babies, homes)?
We bought our first condo in May and have an Airedale terrier puppy named Taylor, who has been so much fun!
