More about us...


What's something you really looked forward to on your wedding day, besides marrying your best friend?

So many things! But a big one was the dancefloor. It was a rare opportunity to get to dance our hearts out with all our loved ones. We didn't have a dj, so we set up a Spotify playlist with all of our favorite songs. We also had guests write in what song they would like to dance to on their RSVPs and added those to the list to get as many people out there as possible! Lilly found our playlist under an old login, and listening to it brought back a lot of great memories.

We were also thrilled to welcome some of our oldest friends from out of town and celebrated with them all weekend long!

What are some things you enjoy doing together?

Cooking new recipes and coming up with our own, playing with our dogs, playing video and board games, watching dumb horror movies while commentating jokes over them.


What's something your partner does that makes you laugh?

Lilly - justin will write these ridiculous random stories and then send them to me read by an AI voice. they're just hilarious ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Justin - when Lilly sings new nicknames to our animals. The nicknames and melodies end up sticking around the house for a while.

Do you have any favorite local spots or shops?

Lately our "random Tuesday night date" has been hitting up Oskar's Slider Bar followed by Baxter Avenue Theatre for terribly goofy or surprisingly great A-24 / other horror movies. We also love checking out different parks whether biking through them or walking our dogs.

Do either of you have any hidden "talents"?

Justin can sorta draw with his feet... Lilly can touch her nose with her tongue.

Any songs or albums you guys love rocking out together to? First dance song?

Soooo many.... say anything and tons of other 2000s emo, frank ocean's blonde. Our first dance song was "Our House" by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young because we bought our first house the year we got married and had two cats at the time, so it felt close to home. 


Favorite Dynamic Duo?
