MAKING DECISIONS AS A COUPLE
How’d you know s/he was the one?
Kelly says, “Ted and I met while studying abroad in Florence Italy, and have been having fun ever since. He’s my best friend and I can’t imagine spending the rest of life’s adventures with anyone else.” Ted says, “I knew Kelly was the one because ever since the beginning when we first started dating everything has just been easy. Nothing is complicated, nothing feels forced its just smooth going. Even when it isn’t easy or we are on each other’s nerves, it is smooth. Since I first met her in Italy it has just clicked.”
Where would we find you guys on a typical Friday or Saturday night?
Camping somewhere in Colorado, or at a brewery with our puppy.
What’s the last trip you took together? Why that spot?
Costa Rica. We went on family vacation there with the Armstrong’s and did everything from relax by the pool, to deep sea fishing, to zip lining through a river canyon! It had been a bucket list destination for us both.
What’s something we can expect to see at your wedding?
We bought both of our parents dance lessons- so watch out for their newly learned moves! You can also expect our friend Brianna to be dancing like crazy until you make her leave.
Which actor would play each of you in a Hollywood Blockbuster?
We will dream big and go with Reese Witherspoon and Owen Wilson ;)

HELPING OUT THE OTHER CUNNINGHAM COUPLES
Any advice for couples reading this that are about to plan their own wedding/Best wedding planning advice you've received to date?
The first few months feel very overwhelming and stressful, but also a lot of fun! Once the big things are nailed down- you will have time to enjoy it so take the time in the beginning to have less stress down the road.
