Jamie & Matthew, The Rainbow Room, NYC
What was your number one goal for your wedding day?
Jamie & Matthew: To throw an epic party. We have dated for 13 years so it was a long time coming. We share all the same friends and have grown up together. We wanted our wedding to feel intimate but be fun and crazy at the same time.
Do you have any advice for brides- and grooms-to-be?
Jamie & Matthew: Be present. Don’t worry about any petty things and just enjoy yourself.
Jamie: Eat something! That is my one regret from my wedding, I was so nervous I didn’t eat. To sum it up, it’s the best day of your life and you should live in your own little bubble. Look at the person you’re marrying and just be in the moment.
How did you first meet?
Jamie: We first met when we were both on December break at the Boca Raton Hotel. We were 15 years old, and in true teenager fashion we made-out the first night we met. After, we became best friends and didn’t date until a year later.
Describe your relationship in three words.
Jamie & Matthew: Special, exciting, and ridiculous.
Matthew, if Jamie were a super hero, who would she be? Why?
Matt: Jamie would be Hit Girl from Kick-Ass because she’s cute, little, and outrageous.
Jamie, if Matthew were a super hero, who would he be? Why?
Jamie: Matt would be Deadpool, because if he likes you he loves you and if he doesn’t he has no time for you. He’s fiercely loyal and always has your back.
