Your favourite wedding story: We already knew we were moving to Glasgow, a city neither of us had even visited before, when we got engaged in Arizona. To celebrate the start of our life together, we decided to have our wedding in Glasgow and invite our friends and family to our new home. We were so happy and grateful to see our loved ones arrive in Scotland and enjoyed showing them the sights before and after the wedding.
