Tell us how you first met? who what when where why? give us the dirty details.

When did you know he/she was the one? Was there something he/she did?, etc.

Tyler = One of the times I knew Shauna was “the one” was during our first “Skate With Santa” at the now closed U.S. Ice Sports Complex in Fairview Heights, IL. I think I knew for me before that, but seeing her with my daughters solidified the missing piece of the puzzle.

Shauna = When he fulfilled one of the quotes that I held dear for so long: “One day someone is going to hug you so tight that all of your broken pieces will stick back together.” I have always had huge trust issues and always said that I would never let anyone close enough to me to allow me to trust them. I can honestly say that aside from my daddy, Tyler is the only male I have ever allowed myself to trust.

Tell is the one thing you love most about each other.

The answer to this question is the same for both of us: the thing that we love most about each other is also the thing that we hate the most about one another which is that neither one of us will back down to the other and we constantly challenge each other to be better.

If you feel comfortable, share with us something silly or quirky the other person does.

Tyler = Shauna crosses herself every time we pass roadkill and she is not even Catholic; she is the only Lutheran I know who does that.

Shauna = When Tyler runs, he holds his arms really close to his sides and looks like he is shadowboxing his boobs….he does not see the humor in it like I do.

Besides getting married – whats the one thing you are looking forward to on your wedding day?

Tyler = The fabulous party with our closest family and friends

Shauna = Enjoying the day that I never thought would come (as I was the girl who was never going to get married) and seeing how much glitter I can get to shoot out of a cannon.

As a surprise for Shauna’s parents who will celebrate their 35th wedding anniversary about 2 weeks before our wedding, we had a tier of their cake replicated by The Cakery so they will be able to cut a cake as well

All the males have a superhero in their boutonniere; Shauna has catwoman in her bouquet as a nod to Tyler’s adoration for Batman. She also has momentous for her maternal grandparents in her bouquet.

Tyler’s father who is no longer with us played with his band in the balcony at the re-opening of The Fox in 1982.
