The Wedding Party
I would have to say that the best part - and incidentally
the hardest - has been trying to share our day with our friends
and family without being too imposing and invasive. This may or
may not be all that successful of a goal, but I swear to you that
such was the original goal.
So, though a few details remain to be worked out,
we at least know who will be in our wedding party. As far
as a biological sketch goes, we'll have to let the interested
parties throw in their two cents before we mention too much.
Don't take any placement or comments seriously.
Especially the comments...it's a little tongue in cheek at this
In any case, I'm babbling. So, without further
ado...the wedding party.
Tracy is currently a Hall Director at Northern Illinois
University and wants no one to know that she originally
introduced Leslie & John to each other.
Actually I've been looking for a way to put this picture
online for awhile. Joe is a good friend with a quirky
sense of humor and finely tuned yo-yo skills.

Alicia is pursuing a doctorate in Psychology at the University
of Iowa. Being an Illinois graduate, I will actually lay
off all the comments currently running through my head
at this time.

No, it's not a pirate...it's just Cory. That does not
mean however that you are safe from any of his pranks....
Okay, you're safe...we're not.
You know why Krista is smiling? She lives in Austin and
works from home at times. Those of you living up north
can appreciate the benefits of that...can't you?
Alright, I'll get a little sentimental here. This gentleman
has gone through a lot of unique situations with me and
in doing so is a very dear friend.
Honestly, I need to find some better pictures for these two,
but Justin's is funny and Tom's is just there to embarrass him
until I scan a newer one.
Granted, I really shouldn't do this to the guy, but he
showed up to Joe & Jen's reception without a date
and this mayhem ensued.
Besides, he's got a good sense of humor and may even
So, if you find him at the reception with a gleem in
his eye, kindly hide the mop. Thanks.
Unlike some of us poor souls, Tom is still in high school
and living at home. Though he works and plays sports and
otherwise entertains himself in artistic ways that put
me at least to shame.
Of course, he's my brother and i've got a lot of respect
for anyone who grew up around me and hasn't gone insane
in the process.
In all seriousness, these are just some of our nearest and dearest
and I wish we could include everyone we care about.
Then again...who would come to the wedding and just be guests?
