In the spirit of VD

I'm doing more memes this week because it's been another shitty week this year, I have a friend in town so I don't have as much time, and the lovely Valentine's Day is only three days away! Thanks to BPR. It's about my relationship and marriage. If you want to look at our wedding photos, you can go here.

1. Where/how did you meet?
First week of law school. I was the only guy who was reading a fiction book instead of furiously reading our books for class. That intrigued her so she hit on me.

2. How long have you known each other?
Since August 1998, so eight and a half years.

3. How long after you met did you start dating?
We started dating about two months later, in October. During that period we hung out a lot, which was romantically frustrating!

4. How long did you date before you were engaged?
We decided about four months into our relationship, that if we could stay together through the stress and problems of law school, then we could survive anything, and we'd get married after graduating.

5. How long was your engagement?
I gave her a ring in December. We got married 11 months later. She and I picked out the ring together, though, so it wasn't an official engagement period.

6. How long have you been married?
Six years next October.

7. What is your anniversary?
October 13th.

8. How many people came to your wedding reception?
Around 150, I think. We got married a month after fucking 9/11, so we had some out-of-town guests who weren't willing to fly down.

9. What kind of cake did you serve?
White cake with buttercream icing. We had a nice expensive cake for show, and then a sheet cake in the back to eat.

10. Where was your wedding?
Daytona Beach, Florida. Our original reception hall, which was very nice and "old money", closed down three months before our wedding by putting a sign out on the door telling employees that they'd get their paychecks in the mail. By the way, fuck you Halifax Club. We got into this new place right on a golf course that just started hosting receptions. We almost had to do it in my parents' backyard. That would have been horrendous.

11. What did you serve for your meal?
We had chicken, beef, and vegetarian meals. I can't remember the specifics though.

12. How many people were there in your bridal party?
We had four bridesmaids and four groomsmen.

13. Are you still friends with them all?
Yup. Four of them are siblings, and the rest are very good friends.

14. Did you or your spouse cry during the ceremony?
Nope. We didn't have time. Our ceremony was only 8 minutes long, and it was Catholic!

15. Most special moment of your wedding day?
Don't think we had one. The whole day was special.

16. Any funny moments?
Realizing how long a song is when you're the only ones dancing out there.

17. Any big disasters?
None whatsoever. I ran a tight ship and supervised everything. The wedding coordinator was about to kill me.

18. Where did you go on your honeymoon?
On a cruise.

19. How long were you gone?
4-5 days.

20. If you were to do your wedding over, what would you change?
Not go on a cruise. It was dreadful.

21. What side of the bed do you sleep on?
I sleep on the left side of the bed, unless she's out of town on business. Then I sleep on her side with her pillow.

22. What size is your bed?

23. Greatest strength as a couple?
I don't even know what this means. Like the Wonder Twins? Shape of an ice cube and form of an eagle?

24. Greatest challenge as a couple?
Running a business is always a challenge. But we're completely supportive of each other, so there aren't any real speed bumps.

25. Who literally pays the bills?
I actually go online to pay them, but we both make the money.

26. What is your song?
We have two: "Nobody does it better," by Carly Simon, and "All I want to do is grow old with you,", by Adam Sandler.

27. What did you dance your first dance to?
"Nobody does it better".

28. Describe your wedding dress?
Fuchsia with a big wreath of sunflowers around my head. Open space so my junk could hang out.

29. What kind of flowers did you have at your wedding?
We kept very minimal flowers. Since the church was already decorated, and since nobody remembers the flowers anyways, we decided to focus on the more important things like food and booze. Our centerpieces were ocean-themed, with glass plates that had white sand and candles, with seashells on them.

30. Are your wedding bands engraved? What do they say?
The insides say AHA AMY, with a heart between them.
