Honeymoon Location: Not sure yet. We’re thinking an all-inclusive in Aruba, Antigua or Costa Rica or maybe a cruise πŸ™‚

First Dance Song: We’re thinking “I wanna be your everything” by Keith Urban

Bachelorrete (when/what): We’re thinking of spending the day at Ocean Club in Marina Bay (outdoor club with cabanas) and then heading to “Splash” nightclub in Boston.


Wow, we’ve figured out more than I thought!
