This attractive looking crew are some of our closest friends and all around best people we know. We're pretty lucky to have them!
Jenny is Cara's sister, best friend, muse, life coach, wardrobe consultant, and hero. Cara would be utterly lost without her and life would be significantly less funny.
Courtney is Chris's sister and one of the coolest people we know. She's married to Steve (you'll see his handsome mug below), and she's always been one of Chris's best friends...though if she asks, Chris will staunchly declare her a butt-brain.
Steve is Chris's brother-in-law, thus making him the husband of the gorgeous blond above. Steve is an enthusiast of many things; gin, the bands Rush and U2, spy novels, and Bernese Mountain Dogs (of the wider variety). Steve is often the voice of reason unless found at Yak-Zies at 2:00 AM.
Andrea (AJ) is one of Cara's sassiest friends. She's a fantastic wife and mother of 2, a nurse, and an all around responsible adult...but she can still pack a lot of fun into a party when necessary.
It's pretty rare to find a person that's equal parts cool cat and genuinely nice guy, but Colin is just that sort of person. He's good for all kinds of new and fun activities in Chicago, or just your standard comfort food and sports at BW3s.
Maria is an honest and caring person who always sees the best in people. If you need some positive affirmations to ensure that you'll find love in life, I suggest you talk to her...but beware: she's got a wee bit of feisty devil inside her as well!
Chris and Cara have had the pleasure of getting to know Dr. Webber over the last few years and he has become key ingredient making sure Chris's Chicago gang sticks together. Dr. Webber received his doctorate in weekend organization (typically in WI) and beverage gathering.
Michelle, my belle, has been friends with Cara for an amazing 20 years! She lives in Denver now, so they don't get to play as much as Cara would like, but it's always a rocking good time when they do.
JB is the self-declared mayor of South Lakeview Chicago. Ben, who is originally from Bexley, OH (a city with, arguably the best landscaping in the Midwest), is a good get for Chicago. Ben is an upstanding individual who enjoys drinking scotch, being quiet on trips, and herky jerky dancing. When not studying, Ben can be found listening to mopey British rock, or enjoying one of Chicago’s fine Mexican restaurants.
Jane soon-to-be-Meyer is engaged and getting married just 3 short weeks after Chris and Cara! If you notice her looking a bit googly-eyed, it's a fair bet that her dreamy fiancé, John, is near-by. Lovely lady Jane and Cara have been friends since high school, and she makes Cara's life better and more fun in Chicago to this day!
Justin Penn is very excited for you that you will have the opportunity to meet him. He's pretty awesome (just ask him), and he makes our world better regularly with such antics as public arm wrestling, daily surprise birthday parties, and choreographed karaoke.
Jim Bergin is a man of complex tastes. He loves all things Notre Dame and Michigan with total devotion. He also loves Bud Light Lime, Summer Shandy, Subway sandwiches and the vortex...none of which will we be serving at our wedding.
