What is your favorite memory from your wedding day?
Patrick: Watching Melissa walk down the aisle.

If you could, is there anything you would have done differently?
Patrick: Probably would go back and not drink as much at the reception.
Missy: Patrick’s response cracks me up! Um, I would designate someone to be in charge of everything the day of the wedding.
