First of all – we would like to thank both set of parents for making this the most incredbile day of our lives! Our parents were very instrumental in making this day so perfect and unbelievably fun. We also want to thank all of our friends and family who traveled from all parts of the country to spend this day with us.

Jordan and I met in high school and have been dating for 6 and a half years – so to say our wedding was a long time coming is an understatement! The day was just as magical as we had hoped it would be – full of laughs, happy tears and a lot of fun.

I first met Josh while waitressing in high school. I worked at a local restaurant with Josh’s sister. As his sister and I became friends josh and my relationship started to develop. One night while having a game night at his sister house she decided to play match maker. The next day at work she told me that she thought we would be a “cute couple” and asked me if she could give Josh my number. We started talking outside of the usual friends group and dating over the next couple of years. We got engaged in 2008 and have had a very long engagement so we are very excited for our big day!

Hillary & Billy at The Glover Mansion

florist: Garden of eden

Cake: Europa

How We Met

Hillary and I first met at Huntington Beach, Ca during a Medical School mixer where she turned down my invitation to get Balboa Bars (ice cream). Shortly after, we hit it off at a dinner party at a mutual friend’s house when she discovered I had made a gourmet salad: one that wasn’t just iceberg lettuce, shredded carrots, and ranch dressing. Unfortunately I had to leave the festivities early and was not able to try the desert she made: Apple pie. Later that same week, a fortunate misunderstanding in an offer of apple pie led me to her apartment where we sat and talked for two hours. I asked her out on a date to Stell Coffee after several weeks of courting.

The Wonder Years

Most of the time in between our first date and our engagement was spent buried behind a textbook or on the units in the hospital. However, we did find the time to spend with friends, attend church, go snowboarding, tan (or burn, in Hillary’s case) at the beach, camp, and go on the occasional date.

The Engagement

On Saturday May 18th, between our OBGYN and Family Medicine rotation, I told Hillary we were going to spend the day in San Diego with our friends Ben and Sharon. Our morning started at the Children’s Pool in La Jolla watching (and smelling) the harbor seals. We then meandered along the coast and eventually drove to Balboa Park in downtown San Diego for a picnic lunch. There, I sat her down at a quiet tree, opened my basket where the ring box was sitting, and proposed.

Lauren and Tyler Engaged! Fun and Funky!

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.
