He knew he was in love when…

They went on their first date. Afterward he realized that she was his wife-to-be. As time went on, he knew she had all the qualities he was looking for in a soul mate.

She knew she was in love when…

She couldn’t imagine her life with anyone else in his place. No one else measured up. He has all the qualities that she needs to feel happy, loved and secure.

In 10 years we will…

Hopefully be blessed with a beautiful and healthy family as well as continue to have successful careers.

Before the groom got married, he wishes someone had told him

There is nothing better than having a lifetime partner/best friend who understands you better than anyone. When you’re married you help each other become better people everyday.

Before the bride got married, she wishes someone had told her…

More positive things about marriage. Everyone wanted to make sure that she understood the hard work required and the importance of communication and compromise, which was all very good advice, but she would have loved to hear more about how joyful and fulfilling married life can be. Understanding that marriage isn’t easy doesn’t mean that you have to always be worried about or preparing for the next big challenge you’re going to face. Marriage is a gift from God. Therefore, we should dwell in its wonder and beauty.

Our favorite activity to do together is…

Eating. We love food. We love to eat. Period.

Our nicknames for each other are…

Her nickname for him is “Boo Boo” because he was jealous of her dog, Delta, that she affectionately called “Boo-Boo.” He is not an animal person so he could not understand why people are so loving to their pets. On several occasions, he said that she loved her dog more than him because she spoke so dearly of her dog. So jokingly, she began to call him her “Boo-Boo” and it stuck.

His nickname for her is “Med School” because one of his favorite shows is The Game and that was the nickname of a character on the TV show who was in medical school like his wife was at the time.

Our favorite place to spend time together is…

At home. We enjoy each other’s company and at home there are less distractions so we can focus on one another.

Our song is…

“Here and Now” by Luther Vandross.

Our perfect date night is…

Trying something entertaining that we’ve never done before and, of course, going out to eat at an amazing restaurant.
