Meet Our Beloved Family & Friends Who Will Be Walking Down The Aisle With Us!



"I've dreamt of my wedding day and the man I would get to call my husband my entire life. I can't believe that the moment is finally here and I get to share the rest of my life with Bryan by my side! Every day is like a fairytale with my prince charming. I'm so proud of the man Bryan is. His patience, generosity, sincerity, and kindness knows no bounds. He has supported me every step of the way in my education endeavors, and I am truly so grateful. Can't imagine my life without him. He is everything to me, and we cannot wait to share the celebration of our love with our closest family and friends!"



"If you told me a long time ago before Nancy came into my life, that eventually I would get to marry the most beautiful, witty, smart, humble, passionate, sweet, outgoing, and loyal woman I have ever met in my entire life; I would have thought you were joking. She truly deserves the world. And I plan on spending every day for the rest of my life, showing her how incredible she is, and making her feel how she makes me feel every day. She says she is the lucky one, but that is definitely me."

Sarah W

Matron of Honor

Sarah is my future Sister in Law and Matron of Honor! From the first time we met, I could tell we were going to have such a special bond. She has taught me everything I know about hair and makeup, taken me out for girls nights because I don’t have the biggest circle of friends, and is always one call away if I need her. Our relationship and friendship has only gotten better and better as the years go on. I feel so lucky to have her a my sister, matron or honor, and to be able to call her one of my best friends.


Best Man

Where do I even start with my childhood best friend... I honestly can't remember a time in my life without Ryan as we've been friends since we were 4 years old. We have grown up together and our friendship has only gotten stronger over the years, even more so as he welcomed Nancy into our friend group immediately. We're not just friends, we're family. I cannot imagine getting married without him by my side.



Claire has been a part of the family for as long as I can remember. Her and my brother Sean have been a pivotal role model couple that Bryan and I look up to. I don't consider her to be my sister in law, but rather my sister. Growing up with brothers, I always wanted a sister. And it is safe to say that it was worth the wait. She is so kind, selfless, passionate, always wants whats best for everyone, and such an incredible Mom. Our family was blessed when Claire joined. Getting married wouldn't have been the same without her with me.



Being one of my older brothers, I have looked up to Andrew my entire life. I have so many fond memories of us playing video games together. One of the first introductions Nancy had with my family was playing rocket league with myself and Andrew. I’m very lucky that as we grew older and I moved to California for Nancy’s education, our bond as siblings has only gotten stronger. He’s always been there for me no matter what. Even when Nancy and I got engaged and called Andrew and my other brother Steven, they literally dropped everything and answered the call from the bathroom at a Bandits game. I can’t wait to get married with my brother by my side.

Sarah R


Growing up with no brothers, words couldn’t express my joy when I figured out that I was going to get a stepsister when my Mom and stepdad Peter got married. The best part of summer was her coming out to visit and getting quality time! We’d have silly face competitions as kids and complain about being tweaked by our now 6 combined brothers as she also has 3. Our relationship as sisters is so important to me and flourished even more than I ever hoped for when I was a bridesmaid for her wedding in June of 2022. I had the best time being her bridesmaid and can’t wait to share the same experiences with her for my wedding!



Steven is my oldest brother and another pivotal male role model in my life. When I was a young child, I had a speech impediment. The only person that could understand me was Steven. He would help translate what I meant to my parents, friends, family, etc. Fast forward 20+ years, after Nancy and I had been dating for over a year, Steve made sure to remind me how good of a girl Nancy was and to put a ring on that quick. As the years went on without no proposal, you best believe that I heard it from Steven almost every day. When we called Steve after getting engaged, he said and I quote "FINALLY! It's about time".



I absolutely adore Christina! She is just downright stunning and the best hype woman ever!! During Covid we would Skype and workout together, and anytime I feel bad about myself, Christina is always there to pick me up. She always makes sure to host a party or two when Bryan and I visit so that we have the opportunity to see all our closest friends. Christina never wavers in her kindness and love for others and continuously puts others needs above hers. She has the best fashion sense and decor style, EVER! I can’t wait to get married and have another sister in law!



Being one of Nancy’s older brothers, I was fairly nervous to meet Joe the first time. From the second I walked in the door, Joe made me feel like family and like I’ve been around this whole time. He is just one of those people that you want to have around all the time. After moving to California, the area was very new to me, and Joe didn’t hesitate to introduce me to some of his friends, come over to hang out with us when we’d visit Nancy’s family in Petaluma, and any time I’d hop on discord; he was there to play video games with me. He is one of the funniest people I have ever met, and I am thrilled to not only call Joe one of my best friends, but to have him as a brother.



I had the absolute pleasure of meeting Emily through Sarah as they are twins!! And just like Sarah, Emily is such an incredible person. From the first moment we met, I just knew I had to be friends with her! The way she carries herself, and how kind, caring, smart, beautiful, and loving she is. When I was in New York for a year during the peak of the Pandemic, Emily would have Bryan and I over to play games and take our mind off of how hard of a time that was. It has been such a privilege seeing her blossom into such an amazing mother. Emily sends me pictures almost every single day of her family and will frequently check in on me, just because she knows how much that means to me, and that’s the kind of person she is.



I have always had a thing for gingers. Whether that is in a relationship or friendship. We met through Steven because they both worked together, and our friendship was immediate. He’s part of the OG video game crew, and has always been there when I need him. Every time Nancy and I visit New York, Karl is one of the few people that will show up to every. single. occasion. just to maximize time with us. Whether it’s meeting up for dinner, hanging out watching YouTube, going to concerts, etc. Which means the absolute world to me. He also had a hilarious reaction that needs to be mentioned when Nancy and I called after getting engaged and he said “IT TOOK YOU LONG ENOUGH!!” (See the engagement video at the bottom of the home page)



I have known Brianna my entire life! Growing up together as the only two girls out of nine grandchildren, the highlight of my year was spending every holiday family event with my incredible, smart, kind, patient, and beautiful cousin! She's been a part of so many of my best memories. It has been such a pleasure watching her become the most incredible mom to her two adorable children. I was honored to be her bridesmaid for her wedding, and now I can't wait to share more bridal party moments with her as my bridesmaid!



Nate is another vital person in the video game crew, and one of my closest friends. He is a comedic genius, and never ceases to make Nancy and I laugh so hard that we cry happy tears. Nancy and Nate are besties and that’s more than I could have ever ask for. Seeing those two be weirdos together makes me love him even more as he truly accepted Nancy into our friend group with open arms, and knew from the beginning how much she meant to me. He is one of the best parts about Western New York.


Flower Girl

Gracie is our adorable, smart, and sweet little Niece. She loves all things pink, jewelry, looking at pictures, and her precious meow meow. Every day we get to spend with her is such a blessing, and she has enriched our family with so much love since her arrival!


Ring Bearer

Owen is our curious, daring, adventurous, empathetic, and handsome nephew. He loves playing in the dirt, excavators, bulldozers, helicopters, riding his bike, and keeping all of us on our toes! He is the first to honor us with the title of Auntie and Uncle! Our family has never been the same since he came into our lives!


Mother of the Bride & Officiant

My Mom has raised me to be the strong, confident, friendly, kind, and brave woman I am today. She showed me to never be afraid to take chances... To even take a chance on a guy that I met online that lived across the country in New York... Throughout my childhood, we would religiously watch the Bachelor/Bachelorette, and countless Say Yes To The Dress episodes, talking about what it would be like for me to try on wedding dresses one day. She has supported me my entire life. With being by my side every step of the way in getting my bachelors in Astrophysics and then going back to school to pursue a career in medicine, in my eating disorder recovery, in mine and Bryan's entire relationship, etc. She has always been there. She has sacrificed so much for me and given so much of her life to me and my siblings. My Mom has dedicated her whole life to being an incredible mother, working multiple jobs to give us the life she wanted for us, and doing everything in her power to give me the wedding that I have dreamed about my entire life. She accepted Bryan immediately as a member of our family, and has never treated him like an outsider. I cannot thank her enough and Bryan and I could not think of anyone else to be our officiant.


Mother of the Groom

Trying to describe the women who raised you is a difficult task, it's hard to put all the years down into sentences. Thank you for being there to support any endeavor I would embark on, whether it would be boy scout, sports, my career, or college/educational goals. Always pushing me to be the best that I can be. And even the rememberable but frustrating Thursday nights we would spend at Panera going over vocabulary words, which I was always terrible at. She would spend so much time planning our big family trips every year, that were always a blast and a great way to spend quality time as a family!


Father of the Bride

Being his only daughter and Snicklefritz (a nickname he had for me as a kid), my dad has always had a soft spot for me. Some of the fondest memories of my childhood and life was our yearly camping trip tradition to Lake Englebright. For those of you who don't know, it is A LOT of work. To pack for a week, tent camping, getting all the gear from the attic, doing all the grocery shopping, schlepping all the gear from the cars to the boat - to the campsite, in blistering heat, having to buy ice multiple times a day to keep the food cold in the coolers, etc. It was a lot of work, but my Dad did it every single year because he knew how much it meant to me. We'd go tubing, hiking, swimming in the lake, and spending quality time together. I look forward to it every year, and it got even better once I got to bring Bryan along. My Dad loved and accepted Bryan immediately, and supported our relationship from the beginning. He was so excited for our engagement and did not hesitate to give Bryan his blessing when he asked! Along with camping, Bryan and I love watching football with my Dad and childhood dog Zoey every Sunday!


Father of the Groom

The best part about boy scouts was having my Dad tag along on the camping trips. Throughout my childhood, I could count on my dad to be there for me and my brothers. When I got my first big boy x-ray tech job, we got to work at the same hospital, and although we worked opposite shifts, he would always call me either late at night when I was driving to work, or early morning when I was leaving work and he was starting his shift. Then on the drives, we'd try to see if we could find each other driving past one another on our opposite commutes. He was also so supportive and encouraged me to take a chance on Nancy, and look at where we are today. The first thing he said to her was "What does a polish bride get on her wedding night thats long and hard.... A last name!" What an incredible ice breaker. Since that day, he never ceased in making Nancy laugh with his cringey Dad jokes because she loves them, giving her tight bear hugs, and treating her like the daughter that he never had. It means so much to me how much he loves her and how kindly he treats her.
