Our wedding story is one not only about us, but how so many that love us came together to make this a wedding a day we will always remember with joy and happiness. We are so appreciative.
Tyler’s extensive experience as a Liturgical planner and organist allowed him to create a beautiful music liturgy. With the help of Robert Carr, the Cathedral Choir, and Father Connall, we had a moving wedding ceremony that went hand in hand with the Marriage Preparation that we attended with Fr. Connall to prepare us for marriage beyond the wedding day.
Lauren’s experience as Ifong’s assistant (long ago) gave Lauren the experience to create everything from the invitations to colors to seating charts. Every detail of the reception was considered for the wedding party and guests’ comfort and enjoyment.
The work done by Lauren, Tyler and all of the talented vendors made the day so magical and memorable. And of course, our wedding would have been neither of these things were it not for all of the guests that took time and effort to travel (some a very great distance) to be with us to share this most honored event in our lives.

Sam and Casey’s history goes back to their high school teen living class. Sam’s sister, Heather, had been friends with Casey for quite some time. Sam saw Casey in class and was instantly attracted to him. Heather could tell that Sam was very smitten by Casey, and knew that they must meet. So, Heather set them up on a date, and they hit it off right away. November 3, 2007, they were an official couple! After only dating for a couple months, everyone around them knew they were perfect, and they were constantly being told that they were soul mates, even by complete strangers! Casey and Sam were truly a match made in heaven. After five blissful years as boyfriend and girlfriend, and many family vacations, summer days spent on the boat fishing, and winters at Schweitzer mountain skiing and snowboarding, Casey knew it was time to pop the question. Casey took Sam fishing on September 21, 2012, on Hayden Lake where the engagement happened. Casey and Sam have been together for seven years now, and are happy as ever! They had a beautiful backyard country wedding on August 2, 2014. They truly are, “happy ever after”, and wouldn’t have it any other way.

Jordan and I met about eight years ago in Mr. Clark’s math class at Mead High School. One of us had a huge crush on the other, but the feeling wasn’t exactly reciprocated. I cannot say which was which, as that person feels really bad about it – now that we are about to get married! Fast forward a couple years, and we were put in the same math class again. This time, we BOTH hit it off, and started dating a couple months into the school year! We have been together for six years now.
Jordan and I went to different, but local universities (to stay close) and worked hard to juggle school, jobs, track, internships and each other. Whether it was heading out to Cheney for lunch between classes or driving to Gonzaga for coffee before an 8 a.m. class – we made it work.
Jordan had always said we wouldn’t get engaged until we were both finished with college, so in June of 2013 the excuses were running slim. Just a few short weeks following graduation, the time had FINALLY come. He popped the question outside Cedars Floating Restaurant in Coeur d’Alene, where we had dinner five years prior for my Senior Prom.
We could not be more excited for our big day in May of 2014!
