MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT

Groom's answer: The wedding ceremony
Place: Moab utah
A memorable moment of the honeymoon: Steve says really funny things when we're rock climbing. He was climbing and I was belaying him, and he said something that had me almost in tears I was laughing so hard, at that moment I thought to myself, "holy cow! I'm married to this man!" that was the first time that it had really sunk in.
Don't sweat the small stuff. Actually, don't sweat anything at all! Things are going to go wrong, if you keep a cool head about you it'll all work out. Right before the reception the zipper on my dress broke, and then I spilled marinated chicken all down the front of it! Steve and I fixed the zipper, and some hot water and sprite took the chicken right off of it. It all turned out just fine, and we were the only people who ever knew about it. Remember that that day is about the two of you, and nothing else. Once you realize that this day is about your commitment to each other nothing can ruin it for you!
Rings: his came from the shane company, mine's a secret.
