Our favorite things about each other?
Amanda: My favorite thing about him is that he has the best heart in the whole world. I love how his heart fits perfectly with mine, and is my missing puzzle piece. I love how sweet and caring he is, and how he takes care of me. How he is always there for me. I know I have found my soul mate, best friend, and happily ever after. He makes my life better than a fairytale, or dream come true.
Bryan: It’s got to be that booty! I kid.. She is the kindest, most caring, and strongest person that I know. She stepped right in without hesitation and cared so deeply for my kids, business, and myself. She gives me the extra motivation to keep pushing and to never give up. She is my rock. Plus she deals with my wild shenanigans and constant horrible accents! (I love them so!)

What is your craziest and/or most fun memory together?
Our craziest memory would be soon after one of her first eye surgeries and she went to a big festival with me to help with my interviews. At South By So What?!, there were so many people and it was difficult to make it through crowds to go see sets and get to my interviews. Plus we got rained out in this horrible monsoon like storm haha! Literally kids getting blown across the field, quite entertaining I must say!

What is our song?
We have two! First is a song we had made by our friend Max Bemis of Say Anything and Perma called, “Here For”, and our song from the beginning of our relationship is “How Far This Can Go” by Bowling For Soup.

Ron and Ngoc

How did you Meet?
I worked with Ngoc’s brother at a bar, which led to us hanging out as friends first. One “fateful” night a very tipsy Ngoc was told by my boss that I was wearing a pearl snap shirt, and that she should rip it open. Funny thing was the shirt was NOT a pearl snap, but was actually just a button up. She offered to buy me a new shirt, I suggested dinner instead. That is how I scored our first date.

How long have you been together?
We just celebrated our 6 year anniversary!

What is your favorite thing about each other?
Ngoc: One of my favorite things about Ron (besides his majestic beard) is how incredibly loving and caring he is. He is the definition of a true gentleman. Always putting me first in all aspects and is extremely selfless. He is the best partner I could ever ask for in this crazy adventure we call life!
Ron: My favorite thing about Ngoc is a hard question to answer because there are so many things, but one would have to be her extremely contagious laugh and smile. I can be having the worst day whether it be work or a bad beard day, but just seeing her smile makes the dark clouds disappear and the sun shine through. If laughter is the best medicine than I am in the best health of my life!

What is your craziest and/or most fun memory together?
Traveling to Denver for Riot Fest a few years ago, and got to see Brand New for the first time. They are our favorite band by far, and was an amazing experience for us both to share together.

Brooke and Dani

Brooke and Dani
Brooke and Dani

How did you Meet?
Dani and I met working at Sprouts. I was so nervous about my first week as a cashier and overwhelmed with how much information I had to learn and remember so fast. It seemed like every day I would find another way to embarrass myself in front of my co-workers. After each incident Dani would always call the phone by my register and playfully tease me about what had happened. It took me a week to figure out who it was that was calling me. Lol. After a few weeks of pranks and teasing, we finally started hanging out after work and she later became my best friend and love of my life.

How long have you been together?
Two years without a day apart! 🙂

What is your favorite thing about each other?
Brooke: My favorite thing about Dani is that she’s my best friend. She’s such a big kid at heart and she never fails to make me laugh. We can both just be as goofy and silly as we want to with each other and there’s never any judgement. She’s always there for me and I just cherish each and every day that I spend by her side.
Dani: What I love most about Brooke is her huge heart. I’ve never met any one more kind and considerate of other people. I have always had a hard time letting people in. But it was so easy with her. She inspires me to be a better person and I know we’re our best selves with each other.

What is your craziest and/or most fun memory together?
Our most fun memory was attending Suburbia Music Festival last year. It was always Dani’s dream to see Tegan and Sara preform live, and they put on such a great show! We got lucky enough to get right up to the stage for most of the bands. It was just such an amazing experience and it was also the first day that I had realized I was in love with her. 🙂

What is your song?
Paramore – “Still Into You”

Abbey and Shawn

Abbey and Shawn

How did you Meet?
Shawn and I met back in 2009. I was actually dating a friend of his at the time. The first time we met there was that instant connection, but neither of us acted on it. For the next few years we ran into each other occasionally, but then I started working at the daycare his nephew went to. It took me a couple months before I realized who his nephew was. After a few weeks I messaged Shawn and everything was history from there.

How long have you been together?
We started dating September 4 2013 and got engaged July 4 2014. We just married on January 24, 2015.

What is your favorite thing about each other?
Abbey: I love that no matter how rough the waters get Shawn has never left. He is always by my side and he is a spectacular father to our 2 1/2 year old.
Shawn: I love how understanding and forgiving Abbey is. She’s been through a lot in her life time and she always continues to come out on top, but most of all I love her because she saved my life. She pulled me out when I was drowning and ever since then I’ve been living my life like it has a purpose, because it does!

What is your craziest and/or most fun memory together?
We’ve had many over the top crazy moments, but my favorite crazy and most fun had to be our wedding. We had everything we could of dreamed and more. Dancing together for the first time never gave us so much meaning to our song as the day of our wedding.

What is your song?
“Like Jesus Does” by Eric church
