Their wedding is coming up in a couple weeks, so I thought I'd share their couple spotlight. Thanks R + S!

What is your favorite way to spend time as a couple?
Spending time together with family and friends when we aren't planning for the wedding.
How long did you date before getting engaged?
How did you meet?
Scott and I met our sophomore year of high school in our Pre-Calculus class. So, in case any of you out there are thinking there isn't a point to math classes....there is :) We started "working on homework" together, became the best of friends, and have loved being around each other ever since!
What has been your favorite date together?
Rachel: My favorite date was our junior year of high school, when Scott took me to Prom. In the morning, all the boys in the group made yummy breakfast for all the girls. Later that evening, we went to this beautiful park across from the Timpanogos Temple, where they had a photographer take fun/cute pictures of all of us. For dinner, the boys reserved the high school seminary building, and decorated it with white christmas lights, white linens, and rose petals....it was beautiful!! They had convinced all the seminary teachers to be our waiters and waitresses for the evening. It was so fun and creative. After dinner, the boys got up and sang "You are My Sunshine," and gave all of us red roses. We finished up the night at the dance over at Thanksgiving Point, and then......I got my first kiss on the cheek from Scott :) awww!!! I was on cloud nine.
Scott: I would have to say that our favorite date together was Prom our junior year. It was a lot of fun and we were with all of our friends in one huge group. That was when I held her hand for the first time on the way home and I kissed her goodnight on the cheek. I was so nervous but it is a night I will never forget.
What is your funniest memory as a couple?
Rachel: One memory I will always laugh about is the night that Scott and I decided to start dating exclusively. I had picked Scott up, we hung out at my house, and later started talking about how much we liked each other and wanted to date. It got to be the middle of the night and I had to get up really early for work the next day. I was so excited about everything (and tired!), I forgot that I had given Scott a ride over to my house. Right before he left, he gave me a bit of a funny look, but I didn't think anything of it. Well, the next morning when I was getting ready for work....it dawned on me. In a panic, I was thinking....how did Scott get home last night??!!! Later, he told me that he had walked home (45 minute walk!) because he felt so bad that he had kept me up late. I was so embarassed!!! But, I realized how sweet Scott was, and how much he was willing to give up his comforts to make me happy :)
The next weekend, we were having Sunday dinner with some of Scott's extended family, and they were asking me where I live. I explained how to get to my house, and without knowing what had happened, one of them asked, "How far of a walk is that?" Scott immediately piped in, "Oh, about 45 minutes!" I don't think I will ever cease to be teased about this one....
Scott: I have to say that Rachel wasn't telling the whole story about making me walk home. She forgot to mention that it happened another two times. I didn't mind though. I just wanted her to get a little extra sleep and not have to take the time to drive me home. Plus I like to think that she is looking out for my physical wellness. Thanks honey.
