“My favorite memory was my family serenading me during our reception dinner. They sang Bruno Mars – ’Just the Way You Are”, and I could not stop crying.”
“We spent an entire week eating our way through Italy,” Darian shares. “It was amazing. We were such bums that week. We didn’t do any work. Just ate and drank and talked to each other. The Italians call it “dolce far niente,” which translates to the joy of doing nothing – it was a great change of pace.”
Darian and Moneyede’s closest friends strike a pose for the camera.
“We all went cliff diving the day after the wedding. Jumping off that 30 foot cliff was an exhilarating experience that we will all never forget. There was even a special jump where Moneyede and I jumped in holding hands. I guess we took the plunge in more ways than one.”
