I’ve always enjoyed hanging out with my former and current couples over coffee or dinner. It’s a good way to get to know them and build friendships. Over the past two days, I’ve had a chance to hang out with a former bride, a present couple, and a couple just starting their wedding process.

I started this week having coffee with Kristin and Nick. They’re getting married on May 15 and I’ve only met with Kristin and her mom. After meeting Nick, we instantly hit it off as we realized that we both went to high school together. He was a year behind me and then figured out that we both wrestled on the same team. What a small word! We talked a little about the wedding and about other things. It seemed like we were lifelong friends and it was awesome. I can’t wait for their wedding.

I then had dinner with Meghan and Richie last night. They recently got engaged and just started their planning. I went over all the videos I have in mind and they’re ready for all of them. I’m really excited to be working with Richie and Meghan because Richie is a good friend of mine and we used to work together at Tulane when I was a volleyball video coordinator and he was their volleyball Sports Information Director. We had plenty of good times there and we still laugh it up over one road trip to Salt Lake City and Obispo.

Sandwiched in between my present and future couples was my former bride Brianna. Brianna got married on December 19 at St. Agnes. St. Agnes is a very special church to me. I had my first communion, confirmation, and grammar school graduation there. I still attend St. Agnes and Brianna’s wedding to Bryce at my church was great. We met so I could deliver her wedding DVDs. She was really excited to get them and had this anxious feel to get home and watch the film. Before she left, we chatted like two old friends about her summer plans, my upcoming vacation to North Carolina this week, and what the future holds for her and Bryce. It was great spending time with her and I truly enjoyed it. Below is a photo from their reception.
