Wedding Party

Meet all the family and friends who are helping us celebrate!

Molly Sackett

Maid of Honor

Where will you be traveling from to attend the wedding? Asheville, NC How do you know Sydney and/or Erik? I met Sydney when we were 14 years old in 2012, waiting to audition for God knows what play in the rickety chairs of the Page High School auditorium. She hasn’t left me alone since! Secret talent or fun fact? Syd and I actually share a favorite band — also known as the Avett Brothers — and I’ve seen them in concert an alarming amount of times. Come find me at the wedding and guess how many - the closest guess gets a prize! (Disclaimer: the prize may or may not be a high five.)

Andrew Yoblinski

Best Man

Where will you be traveling from to attend the wedding? Pittsburgh, PA How do you know Sydney and/or Erik? Erik and I had the privilege of sharing a dorm suite with six other gentlemen at Carolina our freshman year. It's the sort of thing that brings guys together like nothing else can, and he's just such a darn good fella that we kept living together through college. Sydney of course appeared on the scene after a while and y'all know the rest. Secret talent or fun fact? Erik and I lived together for so long that I actually felt like we were common-law married for a time, but he left me for another woman (it was Sydney). It's all good, though, 'cause Sydney is great.

Miranda Beene

Bridesmaid

Where will you be traveling from to attend the wedding? Benson, NC How do you know Sydney and/or Erik? Erik got both of my grandmothers lost on the way to the hospital to meet me when I was born, so I've known him since I was a few hours old I guess. Sydney showed up several years later and just kind of stuck around. Secret talent or fun fact? Have you ever written a short film and had it produced? No? Well, I have. *mic drop*

Bryce Ehinger

Groomsman

Where will you be traveling from to attend the wedding? Raleigh, NC How do you know Sydney and/or Erik? I fell off a turnip truck with Sydney, and Erik is a cool guy I know. Secret talent or fun fact? I Iced both Sydney & Erik when they got engaged. lol.

Grant Allen

Groomsman

Where will you be traveling from to attend the wedding? Lincolnton, NC How do you know Sydney and/or Erik? I met Erik when I started at UNC and was randomly assigned with him as a suitemate in Morrison. Secret talent or fun fact? I can wear 17 hats at the same time.

Veronica Correa

Groomswoman

Where will you be traveling from to attend the wedding? Durham, NC How do you know Sydney and/or Erik? I first met Erik freshman year in the historic second floor of Hinton James residence hall, while we all watched UNC beat Kentucky in the Elite Eight. We have since gone on various adventures as a group, including double dates at Monterrey's, sitting in the upper section of the Dean Dome, and discussing the merits of public transportation. Secret talent or fun fact? I recently completed my 200 hour yoga training this summer!

Ashley May

Bridesmaid

Where will you be traveling from to attend the wedding? Norfolk, VA How do you know Sydney and/or Erik? Sydney found my post on the UNC class of 2020 Facebook page looking for a freshman-year roommate and she slid into my DMs. Secret talent or fun fact? I can recite the note from Jersey Shore from memory.

Ian Redmon

Groomsman

Where will you be traveling from to attend the wedding? Cary, NC How do you know Sydney and/or Erik? Erik and I were randomly matched into the same dorm suite our freshman year of college, and we quickly became friends, continuing to live together until graduation. I met Sydney when she and Erik returned to UNC from London and we also quickly became friends, spending lots of time all together in Rams Village! Secret talent or fun fact? Fun fact: I attended more parties with Erik than any other person in college!

Alexis Smith

Bridesmaid

Where will you be traveling from to attend the wedding? Chicago, IL How do you know Sydney and/or Erik? I met Erik and Sydney while we were all studying abroad in London in 2018. The three of us were on a group tour to see Stonehenge, and I overheard Sydney ask if anyone wanted to go to the Harry Potter Studio tour with her. We bonded over our love of Harry Potter, musical theater, pediatric healthcare, and books, so now the rest is history. Erik does like to claim we were friends first because I technically met him before Sydney, but Sydney is the sister I never had and always wanted. Secret talent or fun fact? I can say the alphabet backward in less than 10 seconds.

Shealynn Wood

Bridesmaid

Where will you be traveling from to attend the wedding? Dallas, TX How do you know Sydney and/or Erik? Met Sydney the first day of child life internship and she never really left. Beene was also a packaged deal. Secret talent or fun fact? I can’t play rec sports at Texas Tech because of a fistfight incident, but I told Sydney that wouldn’t be a problem at this wedding.

Lee Hodge

Flower Adult

Where will you be traveling from to attend the wedding? Durham, NC How do you know Sydney and/or Erik? Some egg-headed girl decided she wanted to play Quidditch. Then she put crust in my eye on the first week of practice, and I’ve been stuck with her since. Secret talent or fun fact? I can make that scratchy throat noise.

Madeleine Nieto

Flower Adult

Where will you be traveling from to attend the wedding? Monroe, NC How do you know Sydney and/or Erik? Sydney and I joined the UNC Quidditch team in 2016 and have been rocking it ever since and then Sydney studied abroad in 2018 and met Erik and I was along for the ride when she would be spiraling about their relationship status until it became official (for some reason this involved many talks in the UL). Secret talent or fun fact? I used to write Harry Potter fan fiction but now I just read it for fun as I start writing my own novel.
