My favorite part was after we went back to our room after everything was over. We spent an hour sitting in front of the huge windows in our room, just cuddling and staring out at downtown. We had an awesome view. It was a very intimate, quiet moment and gave us some time just to absorb everything that had happened that day.

20) If married, whats the funniest thing you remember from the day? If engaged, whats your favorite part of the engagement experience? I walked downm the street to Little Ceasars in my hair curlers to get some pizzas to eat at the salon. Im sure I was quite a sight.
