Wedding Party

Orianna Nardone

Maid of Honor

The sister I never had. We might as well be the same person. Except she loves the winter and freezing 8 months out of the year in Boston. She has the biggest heart in the crowd, it probably keeps her, and everyone around her warm during the never ending cold! I have known Ori since 2017 but we didn't become friends until 2018 when we decided to go study abroad in the Southern part of France for a semester. We went everywhere together along two other friends, and let me tell you, if you've never travel with friends you should definitely plan for it. We spent most afternoons "working" on our projects and sipping $2 bottles of wine. When we got to Paris during our trip, we decided we were close enough to Amsterdam that we should go there (if you look it up in map you'll know that is not as close as we thought it was) but we made it there and it was an incredible experience. To this day, we still talk about all the things that happened during that period of our lives. Oh and also, she is also in the field of architecture.. we all are...

Travis Minardi

Best Man

They say experimenting on humans is inhuman, but what you don't know is Travis is actually Jason's clone... with dark hair... He is the real life example of the meaning "copy and paste but make it your own." Growing up with Travis has been amazing. We were basically enemies until high school when we started getting close. Unfortunately, I moved away due to the military, so a lot of our relationship has been from a distance. But over the years I have seen him grow. It doesn't take long after meeting Travis to realize how passionate and determined he is in life. He doesn't do anything half assed, he's full ass the whole time... That's an incredible quality and something I look up to. Travis is a professional drummer and carpenter along with my dad and sister. Travis recently got married to Janel, and they will be celebrating their one year anniversary shortly after Sofia and I's wedding.

Rebecca Dunn

Bridesmaid

We share our love for sweets, if you don't believe me just look at her pic! She will know all the tips and tricks for the day, specially where to get cake, so make sure you ask her. More importantly she has a heart of gold and will be by your side no matter what! We met during our Masters in Architecture... in 2020... yes... COVID... which meant we didn't meet like regular people do, you know face to face.. nope, we met over zoom. And at first I thought she didn't like me and vice versa... However we sorted that out very quickly and became friends over spinning... yes, working out and complaining about school made us bond, and if that is not true friendship I don't know what it is... Oh well, boy problems, which we also both had, me with Jason and her with Ryan (who is also here, so I think we have done pretty good in life if I may say so myself). She is definitely a one of a kind, hard working, loving human being!

Stan Laskos

Groomsman

Stan is one of the nicest guys on the planet, but after 21 years in the Navy he has learned to kill with just about anything... including a coffee cup. Stan and I both served as SWCCs in the Navy and our daughters not only were born 2 weeks apart, they are also best friends. He recently retired from the Navy and is now an accountant with a large law firm in Louisiana. Stan talked me into doing a completely pointless and utterly stupid 17 mile night run. If you don't know what this is, don't even look it up, its not worth it. Needless to say, he knows how much I love him. He has been one of my closest friends since moving to Louisiana. Stan is married to Alison, which is one of my close friends as well. In case you don't notice, she is the only Laskos not in the wedding... she should be though, maybe we change this last minute, but don't tell her...

Quinn Kelsey

Bridesmaid

She will have you partying all night long. She won't take an "I am tired" for an excuse. Instead, she will go to the bar, get you a vodka redbull, and tell you the night is young and so are you! She will be there with you until the end, always reminding you to never land your plane. Quinn and I met during our Masters in Architecture as well. Yes in 2020 during Covid. Don't let her fool you, even though she looks like she won't talk to you she is the friendliest person on the planet. And she also loves jokes and pranks so be careful with her. She decided to move to Chicago after we graduated from Tulane and I helped her moved there. We drove a U-Haul truck all the way there... Let me tell you, moving sucks, but If you do it with a friend is not that bad. She introduced me to a murder podcast. Yup, you read that right, we listen to stories about serial killers the entire time we drove half way across the country on our own. NOT SMART, but hey I never claimed we were. She also has a great taste in music and will make a playlist for EVERY road trip or event in life (she might have contributed to the playlist for the reception, if you love it I will claim it as mine though)

Chris Esparza

Groomsman

I have known Chris since high school. He graduated a year before me., and despite being less than 170lbs I'll put all my money on him in a sushi eating contest. Chris is a loving husband to Hannah and a father of 2 beautiful kids Liliana and Levi. I was one of his groomsmen when he got married. For his bachelor's party Chris wanted to go paintballing, and the only request from Hannah was for me to make sure Chris didn't get hit in the face... well.. somehow, despite wearing a full face mask, he got hit directly in the eye. I am pretty sure he wore more makeup to the wedding than Hannah did. Despite having lived our entire adult lives in different states, Chris and I have stayed in touch over the years.

Hayley Burroughs

Bridesmaid

She is the definition of ride or die. Need to vent for a couple of hours, she is there for you. Need to drive to the other side of town on a whim, she is there for you. Need to hide the body, she is there for you.... jusssst kidding... She is truly unconditional and an amazing friend. She is another 2020 friend. Yup, also in architecture, also Covid, you get the drill. If anyone needs a new house we can definitely design it (maybe build it?) just kidding, she definitely knows what she's doing. She is also incredibly talented when it comes to cooking and making drinks. OMG she can make some amazing bagels, and she can grow her own tomatoes!! If we ever had to survive the end of the world, I'll be running to her house in a heartbeat. She also decided to move to Chicago (without my approval) and is now living the best designer life working for a high end firm there. I know she misses the crazy south though so I might convince her to move back.

Steven Wilson

Groomsman

I have known Steven since high school. Having attempted to make our debut into acting while filming a video for science class, we quickly realized we are as good as actors as Joe Biden is at writing his own speeches. Steven and I were consider the "good kids" in high school and we most definitely took advantage of that our senior year. We spent the majority of that year ditching class to play computer games in the library. This was a solid plan until the principal caught on after a few weeks. Steven is a loving husband to Carly and great father to Gwen. We were both real state agents for a number of years but after finding his passion for education and kids he decided to switch careers and he became a teacher. We have stayed close friends ever since.
