5 Things You Didn’t Know About Us

“So tell me about yourself.” If you were to ask either of us that question in person, you’d get a blank stare like a deer caught in the headlights. Honestly, who really likes answering that question whether at a job interview or worse…….on a date? As much as we’d like to dodge the ball on that question, we’ve come to realize that this thought is on the minds of a lot of brides that peruse our website. So it leaves us no choice but to take the bull by the horns and be proactive about it. Instead of boring you with a long, dry bio of ourselves that will put you to sleep quicker than Unisom, we thought it’d be best to address this question one blog post at a time. Afterall, isn’t that how long it truly takes to get to know a person in real life?

Since you already know where we are from and how we met, we thought it’d be fun to do the “5 Things You Didn’t Know About Us” list. (Drum roll…..)
