OMG - we are getting married today! We have been planning this day for a year & I'm so excited to see the whole vision come to life today! I know it's going to be a great day & I can't wait to share ALL the details with you all ASAP!

To hold you over until I have some photos from our big day, here are 5 fun facts about us:

We first met on the beach on Long Island. I had gotten pooped on by a seagull and after my sister finally stopped laughing at me, we went down to the water so I could rinse off. We started going for a walk and while we were walking a lifeguard jogged over and asked if he could walk with us. We chatted for a few minutes before he continued on his way. A few days later that same lifeguard (Jody, if you haven't figured it out yet hah) sent me a message on Facebook asking me out to dinner! We went on our first date later that week!

Our first trip together was to Disney World. Jody was going to college in St Petersburg at the time and when I went to visit him for his birthday, I surprised him with a trip to Disney! We only had 48 hours but it was lots of fun to visit Magic Kingdom & Downtown Disney! 

We love the New York Rangers & hockey in general! Each season, we travel to one NYR away game for a long weekend. We attend the game and get to explore a new city! Last year, we visited Boston around the holidays and it was so cool to walk around and see the city all decorated & spirited. (see my Boston travel guide here)

I'm older than Jody by 1 year, 2 months & 5 days! He never lets me forget it ;)

Jody proposed on our 4 year dating anniversary. Exactly one year & 2 days ago :) (if you never read the story, or even if you did, you can re-live the proposal here!)
