Tell us how you first met? who what when where why? give us the dirty details.
We first met on a boat on Peanut Island. I was dating someone at the time, but Duncan was super cute and I remembered his name. A year later, once I was single I creeped him on Facebook and started a conversation with him. We went on a date the next day… Now we are married 6 years later.

When did you know he/she was the one? Was there something he/she did? etc.
I knew he was the one when my Mom fell in love with him Thanksgiving 2010.

Tell us about the proposal. (Did you see it coming, how long was it in the planning? how did you feel? nervous, excited, freaking out?)
We were snowboarding on Aspen Mountain, I had no idea it was coming! He pulled over to the side of the mountain and said he broke his snowboard, I was half way down the mountain and trekked back up to him to see what was going on. That's when he pulled out the little black box and got down on one knee! I was completely shocked. We sat on the mountain hysterically crying for 30 minutes! When we got to the bottom of the mountain my mom and his son Dylan were there with champagne!!!

Tell us the one thing you love most about each other.
I love everything about him, I love his passion for suffering and I love watching him surf. I also love that he gives me foot massages on the couch when he really doesn't want too!

If you feel comfortable, share with us something silly or quirky the other person does.
When we play fight, he comes at me hopping on one foot with his other knee up, and for some odd reason it makes me hysterically laugh and then I'm absolutely defenseless. He's also the most ticklish person I know!

Besides getting married - what’s the one thing you are looking forward to on your wedding day?
Our first dance. We drank lots of wine practiced that dance in our kitchen for a few nights before the wedding, those were some good laughs!
