Tyler and I have an exceptionally cliché story. We first met at St. Aloysius Church in September of 2010, where he was the Organist and I was the Sunday School teacher. I knew immediately that we would wind up dating, but he was a bit oblivious at first.
We both studied in the Engineering school at Gonzaga University (class of 2014!), so we ran into each other quite frequently. He finally asked me out in November, after thinking that I was purposefully running into him around campus (a claim I will continue to refute).
Four years, 158 credit hours, a proposal, and a graduation later, here we are! We can’t wait to start the next chapter.

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!

- Luke and I were introduced in 2006 at a WSU-Oregon football game in Pullman. At that time I was dating his friend, and he was engaged. We hit it off right away as friends and had always stayed in touch.The next year was nothing but a total whirl wind for me…in 2007, I had gotten married, had a baby and lost my husband in a tragic work accident. I was left to raise my 4 month old son Coltan alone. Around that same time Luke’s engagement fell through weeks before the wedding. Luke was mourning the loss of his friend and would check in periodically and make sure Coltan & I were okay. Even before I was anywhere near ready to start dating again I was always so impressed with Luke and his loyalty to his friends and family. Neither of us knew it yet but unexpected life events had brought new possibilities. As I went on with life as a single mom, I had literally no interest in dating. Luke and I communicated regularly and as time went on our friendship grew stronger and stronger. I had always gotten a kick out of Lukes adventures as a care free single guy and he always enjoyed updates and photos of Coltan. He was always protective and at times I could tell he was worried about how I was holding up. The years passed and after a lot of long phone calls and many visits our friendship evolved into more. I began to realize how safe & comforted I felt with Luke. I also loved how I didn’t have to explain the long road Coltan & I had been on the past few years. Luke had always been there for us along the way. We share the same values and beliefs on what family and life are all about. I came to a point where we both knew we were ready to be together, everything about “us” felt right. Everything just fell perfectly into place. Once we decided to be together there was no hesitation or looking back. We just became this little family right away and the three of us just fell completely in love. We had talked about it and we always knew we would get married eventually… but we never thought we’d end up getting pregnant before we were able to tie the knot. In November 2012, as we were welcoming our baby girl into the world Luke surprised me with a ring (I was shocked because I was not expecting it in between contractions) and asked if I’d make it official and marry him. We are over the moon happy and so in love with our little family. We can not wait to share our love with our friends and family next summer!
