"It was the most amazing day of my life and I was able to marry my best friend," John gushed in an email while sending us a peek at his wedding photos.
Where is the clone button on this guy?
The New Jersey native proposed to his beautiful wife Jenn on an episode of HGTV's Kitchen Cousins (with Vanessa Williams looking on), and the two recently tied the knot by the sea in Newport, RI.
[Psst: The show's already been renewed for another six episodes. Salute!]
YourTango: What was the last thing you did to show your wife you love her?
John Colaneri: I was just married in June so there are so many things I have done over the past year of being engaged. But in general there is not a day that goes by that I do not tell my wife I love her.
YourTango: What couple do you most admire and why?
John Colaneri: I admire my wife's grandparents Mama Lil and Papa Tony. They have been married for 61 years and their love is stronger than ever. That is what I want my marriage to be like.
YourTango: What's the best love advice you ever heard?
John Colaneri: Always be honest.
YourTango: I'm a sucker for a woman who ... ?
John Colaneri: Can make me laugh!
YourTango: How do you keep your relationship solid and happy?
John Colaneri: I consider myself a romantic and I am always looking to do something special with my wife. If it is dinner, vacation, or just hanging out watching a movie, I want to spend as much time with my wife as possible.
YourTango: What's your most romantic memory?
John Colaneri: Proposing to my wife on my show was the most nerve-racking thing I have ever done and romantic at the same time. I had over a million people watch me profess my love to her!
YourTango: What's your tango?
John Colaneri: My passion is, of course, building and design but more importantly to be a good person. With our new show Cousins Undercover, we help so many people in need and there is nothing in life like giving back to others.
YourTango: If you could tell your younger self something you've since learned about love, sex, and relationships, what would that be?
John Colaneri: Be true to yourself and do not be scared. Love is something that many people think they might have when they do not. It took me some really bad toxic relationships to get to the love I have for my wife. The other relationships did not allow me to be myself. My wife allows me to be weird and have all those little personality traits that make me "me"! That is why I love her so much!
YourTango: What's the most meaningful compliment a partner ever paid you?
John Colaneri: My wife always writes me little love notes. When she says that she loves me for just being myself, there is nothing any better than hearing that.
YourTango: When was the last time you surprised your partner? What did you do?
John Colaneri: I have surprised my wife, especially proposing to her on TV! Most recently, I surprised her with a trip to Vegas and we had the best time together.
YourTango: Do you believe in "The One"?
John Colaneri: Of course! I am married to her.
YourTango: When was the last time something romantic made you cry?
John Colaneri: I have to admit, I am emotional. That is why my nickname is "Passionate John". My wife wrote me a card for no reason telling me how proud she was of me and the help I am giving to others. It was very emotional to read something like that.
YourTango: How do you resolve disagreements with your significant other?
John Colaneri: By just talking it out and compromising. That is what life is about; you have to be able to bend and see things from a different perspective.
YourTango: Describe losing your virginity in three words.
John Colaneri: I can do it in one: "awkward".
YourTango: What's the one thing about your wife that has surprised you the most?
John Colaneri: How deep my wife's love is for me. I think you are always nervous when you start dating a person if they truly love you. I know without a shadow of a doubt that my wife would do anything for me and is truly my best friend.
YourTango: Which celeb couple would you love to double date with? Why?
John Colaneri: I'm not really into the celebrity couple thing, but I would just want to hang out with someone who has good conversation and knows how to laugh.
