FAVOURITE MEMORY: “Other than marrying Mike? I would say the room reveal – the beauty of the room was more than I expected. We made so many little decisions along the way it was so satisfying to see everything come together.” – R
“I don’t think I’ll forget the moment I first saw Renee walking down the aisle. It’s a surreal experience to have your friends and family all together showing their support for you.” – M
