Wedding Party

Maids of Honor

  • Maids of Honor

    Lisa and Sarah Manson

    Lisa is Laura's older sister and Sarah is her younger sister. With less than 2 years between each age, they spent a lot of time together growing up. One year, all 3 of them were in high school at the same time! Somehow their dad survived :) 


    There can be no mistake that Lisa, Laura, and Sarah are sisters. If you can't tell from their similar looks and mannerisms, you can certainly match their deep Manson voices. Lisa and Sarah both live in Los Angeles, and a friend of theirs once said upon meeting Laura for the first time that she was the link that connects them.

    Ali Wismer

    Ali and Laura met in high school and first got to know each other playing on the freshman softball team. Through their years in high school, Laura spent countless nights hanging out in Ali's basement, and now always looks forward to seeing her when she returns to Cleveland for Christmas.

    Katia Dubas

    Katia was Laura's first Seattle friend when she moved to the city in 2011. Katia worked with Laura at Boeing, and was so welcoming and friendly, they immediately started hanging out - holding girls' nights and going on hikes in Cascades. Katia now lives in Carmel, IN with her husband and adorable baby boy, Teddy, but they still find plenty of opportunities to hang out. No distance can separate these two!

    Anika Tuba

    Anika joined Laura's team at Boeing in 2012, and they quickly hit it off. Anika is always down for a happy hour or a weekend brunch, and has been a constant source of friendship in Seattle. She may be small, but Anika has a huge personality and is always so much fun to be around.

Best Man

    Peter Burrows

    Peter and Jeff met at Whitman College and became fast friends. They played on the Ultimate team, the Whitman Sweets, together before continuing on with various teams after college. Though Peter currently resides in France, that has only given Jeff an excuse to visit Europe. Peter was intimately involved in helping plan the proposal, even running up with a bottle of sparkling wine when it was complete.

Groomsmen

    Raphael Miller

    Jeff and Raphael met while working together at Getty Images. Raphael won’t back down from any competition, continuing to challenge Jeff in ping pong despite a winless record (though he’s getting better). Raphael ran the Tough Mudder with Jeff and Laura on a whim, even carrying Jeff on his back to help the team power through.

    Ernesto Hernandez

    Jeff and Ernesto also met while working at Getty Images. Ernesto helped mentor Jeff, becoming his “code whisperer”, and they became fast friends. They bonded over many Taco Tuesday happy hours while at Getty Images. They enjoy playing board games, though Ernesto still won’t let Jeff play dungeons and dragons with him.

    Aaron Dubas

    Jeff and Aaron met through his wife Katia. Aaron has been a constant source of intriguing conversation and friendship since they met. Though he and Katia moved to Carmel, IN, Jeff and Aaron stills find ample time to hang out when Aaron is back in Seattle for work.

    Brian Percival

    Brian was one of Jeff’s first friends at Whitman College. They met trying out for soccer freshman year, and continued to bond over their love of sports. Go Sounders, Seahawks, and Mariners! Though Brian no longer lives in Washington, they continue to keep in touch with a yearly fantasy baseball league.

    Kiwi

    Little Alaskan Klee Kai, Kiwi, entered Laura and Jeff's lives in September 2018. She is full of energy and loves to snuggle and play. She will be almost exactly 1 year old on the day of the wedding and can't wait to meet everyone!

Ring Bear

    Kessa

    We had planned for our adorable 10-year old dog, Kessa, to be our ring bearer, but after a short and unexpected battle with adenocarcinoma, Kessa passed away on September 7, 2018. Although she will no longer be a part of our wedding, she will forever live on in our hearts.
