How did you two meet?

We met on a dating app! We met up for drinks one night, then followed by dinner and a play downtown for one “real” date that same week. Five days later the pandemic caused the world to shut down.

What was your first dance song? 

Our first dance song was Speechless by Dan and Shay. The more important dance for our wedding day was our private last dance of the evening to our song Better Together by Luke Combs.
