The love story of Rea and Joe sounds like a best selling romantic movie, "We met on our very first day of medical school back in 2003 and we were best friends for a year before we got together!" Rea shares. To top it all off, their proposal was just as sweet with Joe asking the big question on a cold Christmas Day in New York.

What did you like about having a destination wedding?
