Maid of Honor: Amber
Amber and I have been friends since our sophomore year in college. We met in Honors Colloquium at Minnesota State University Moorhead. She graduated from MSUM in May of 2003 with a degree in Anthropology. Amber is one of my best friends and knows me better than I know myself sometimes. I love that I can bounce any idea off her and get completely honest feedback. She has been a great help as my Maid of Honor in planning the wedding and all the stresses that go along with it. Currently, Amber is employed by Veritas and lives in Roseville, Minnesota.
Christina is my baby sister. She is 19 years old and just finished her freshman year at University of Northern Colorado in Greeley. She will attend the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks, North Dakota in the fall. She loves hanging out with all her friends, shopping at Old Navy and Aeropostale, her puppy Sophie and her cat Trixie . She is undecided about her major at this time.
Katy and I have been good friends since junior high school. We first met at Discovery Junior High School in the fall of 1996 as 9th graders. I was new to the Fargo-Moorhead area and she befriended me right away. We played the flute together in the band at Discovery and at South High School. She is currently a 3rd year Pharmacy student at North Dakota State University and works part-time at the Meritcare Hospital pharmacy. In May of 2005, she will begin her rotations at pharmacies all over the midwest before graduating in May of 2006. Somehow, we have been able to keep in touch through our mutual love of the Olive Garden and good movies.
I met Mandi through Scott's friend Dave. At the time, she and Dave were dating. Mandi and I were in the same Tae Kwon Do class at Minnesota State University Moorhead in 2000. She was a yellow belt and I was a white belt but we never really talked until I started dating Scott. Mandi and Dave were married July 13th, 2002 in Alexandria, MN. They will be 3 days short of celebrating their second wedding anniversary when Scott and I are married. Mandi is employed by Wells Fargo. Currently, she and Dave reside in Glyndon, MN with their Jack Russell Terrier, Mitsy. Their son, Kaden, was born September 17th, 2004 in Fargo.
Personal Attendant: Jeannie
Jeannie is Scott's older sister. She and her husband live in Kasson, MN. Jeannie works at St. Mary's Hospital near the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota in the Cardiac Cath Lab. She and her husband, Tracy, are in the process of renovating their 1872 Victorian home. Jeannie was the mastermind behind my bridal shower. She did a great job and lots of fun was had by all. Thanks Jeannie! I look forward to getting to know her better and having Jeannie as part of my family. Jeannie and her husband welcomed their daughter Alexandria Marie into the world on April 1st, 2005..
Inga and I met through Tae Kwon Do at Minnesota State University Moorhead in the fall of 2000. She's always been a source of great entertainment and lots of fun to spend time with. Inga graduated in August of 2004 with a degree in English from MSUM. She spend three months in Norway working as a nanny and has just recently returned to the United States. Inga is looking for a job working in a library before returning to school to complete her Master's degree. Inga was also the mastermind behind my bachelorette party and she did a great job. It was a night not to be forgotten! Thanks Inga!
