How they met…
Dan and Vanessa met through mutual friends in college. They first met on a Spring Break trip to Florida with their friends.
Vanessa always talked about how she wanted to go back to visit her college town. On their 4-year anniversary, Vanessa was taken on a journey around Kent to reminisce. With stops along the way at Laziza (the restaurant where they had their first date), her college apartment, her favorite restaurant, and her favorite nail salon for a manicure/pedicure.
After her day in Kent, Vanessa met Dan at Perennial Vineyards in Navarre. Dan was waiting for her at the end of a long gravel path. Once Vanessa reached him, he said, “Let me see your nails…do you know what would look good with those?”
Favorite wedding memory…
Vanessa’s favorite memory was the moment the doors opened for her to walk down the aisle. Also getting to spend some time on the bus after the ceremony, just the two of them, was another favorite memory of her day.
Dan says his favorite memory was marrying his best friend, and strategically smashing cake into Vanessa’s face at the reception.
