Meet our Wedding Party!
Kelly is my sister, my older sister! I have never in my life referred to her as Kelly. When I was little I called her ‘Kiki’ and since then I never turned back. If you know us, you know that we are complete opposites, but for sisters, we are about as close as they come. My sister keeps me grounded and sane and I go to her for everything! As we have grown up we have become very close and I don’t know what I would do without her. In July, my sister and her husband recently settled on their first home in Towanda PA.
Jared and Jason are brothers. Jared is 7 ½ years younger than Jason and attends Bloomsburg University where he is studying Pharmacy. He is living in a fraternity house. Despite the large age gap, Jared and Jason are very close and visit each other regularly.
Meghan has been a good friend of mine forever. We grew up right down the street from one another and used to play barbies all the time!! She is truly like a sister to me. Meghan recently bought a home with her boyfriend, Greg and they live in Hagerstown, MD.
Kelly Galloway has been one of my closest friends since we were in pre-school. We always sat by each other in classes because teachers were ever so clever in putting the students in alphabetical order (G-H). Kelly is one of the strongest people I have ever known. Her honesty and huge heart gives me hope there are still truly good people living with good values. Kelly lives in Virginia with her adorable son, Noah and her sister, Jessica.
Ashley Howells (formally known as Ashley Slagle) and I have known each other since the beginning of our time. I met Ashley when our parents were dropping off her brother and my sister at pre-school! I was fascinated that there was another baby there and even MORE fascinated that she had the exact same name as me!! I thought that was awesome! Ashley and I did everything together in elementary school and in high school and even both managed to stay so close through college life! After college we even worked together part time at her family’s store, “JD’s Beer and Wine!’ Ashley recently had her first child, Kaylie Pamela Howells. Her husband, Robbie, he daughter, Kaylie, and dog, Leila, all reside in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania.
Victoria Slater-Madert and I had the opportunity of meeting in 8th grade, when her “trendy” family moved from New York to Poolesville, MD, the smallest town listed in the Montgomery County area. Vickie had quite a shock coming to our little town, but I eagerly showed her all around our small village. A year after Vickie moved into town, she was already moving out. Since 8th grade Vickie and I have remained extremely close. Vickie’s free spirit reminds me to always have a good time. She is always up for any adventure and in turn we have had a lot of adventures and travels together. Vickie is an awesome photographer and lives with her husband, Billy, in Shepherdstown, WV on a beautiful farm!
Adam is one of Jason’s best friends and fraternity brothers. Adam traveled cross country with Jason and Greg the summer after their junior year in college. Adam currently works with autistic children and he recently moved back to the east coast from California. Adam and his wife, Jen are expecting their first child and it is a girl! He currently resides in Massachusetts with his expecting wife and their two dogs.
Greg is one of Jason’s best friend’s from college. Jason and Greg studied Civil Engineering together and met during their sophomore year in a Chemistry lab after both of them were overserved at a keg party the night before. Jason traveled cross country with Greg the summer after their junior year in college. Greg is a practicing civil engineer and is currently living in San Marcos, California with his wife, Elizabeth and his beautiful children, Sadie and Teddy.
