Wedding Party

Zander Ambrose

Man of Honor

Zander solidified himself as Gabi's best friend on the day of his birth after "gifting" her The Barney Bag - a craft filled tote that the purple dinosaur often showcased on television. This present lessoned the blow of no longer being an only child and thus, Gabi decided her little brother wasn't so bad. Gabi and Zander have been thick as thieves since childhood, often engaging in a secret language of their own that thoroughly grates on the nerves of their parents. Zander's determined spirit and fierce love of family are two of the many reasons why Gabi chose him as her Man of Honor. All she asks is that he pause, at least momentarily, from practicing drum hand exercises during the ceremony.

Nick Keneally

Best Man

Nick is the eldest of Jack's three younger brothers and growing up the two enjoyed turning almost any activity into a friendly competition. Most notably, upon finding out that Jack had learned how to read, Nick refused to be outdone and taught himself how to read all on his own. Nick is a state champion soccer player, though his brothers will be quick to point out that the championship title was shared. He omits a cool demeanor on and off the field, which will be necessary during the fanfare of the wedding. Nick's career path has led him to become a CPA, so surely Jack can 'count' on him to be a stellar best man on his wedding day.

Abby Phillips

Bridesmaid

Abby and Gabi met in kindergarten after Abby and her family moved up the street from the Ambroses. The two quickly became friends and continued to remain inseparable even after Gabi moved to a new neighborhood approximately 1.2 miles away. Abby and Gabi have learned to put up with the rhyming nature of their names, and have always taken it in stride when people mix them up. From Girl Scouts, to swim team, to traveling the world, Abby and Gabi have been through all walks of life together, sharing in unforgettable experiences that have bonded them forever. Gabi couldn't be more delighted to have her friend of over 20 years stand by her side as her bridesmaid, and can count on Abby to hold her train or hand her a glass(es) of champagne when necessary.

Jim Keneally

Groomsman

Lovingly dubbed 'Curtis' in honor of acclaimed Jets running back Curtis Martin, Jim is the middle of Jack's three younger brothers. Jim is an eager learner with a wide variety of interests, and is also highly regarded as the strongest judge of character among the Keneally brothers, best displayed in his youth when he rejected an offer of an autograph from Tiger Woods. Jim's even-keeled attitude is one of his best traits and Jack is thrilled to have his younger brother's calming presence in his wedding party.

Nicole Yatrousis

Bridesmaid

Nicole, more commonly referred to as Quig, has been by Gabi's side since they were carpooling to dance class together in elementary school. Through the years, they have bonded over shared obsessions such as Twilight (#teamjacob), Broadway musicals, Bravo reality television, and Sacha Baron Cohen. You can constantly see Quig and Gabi with their heads thrown back laughing, sharing in a private joke of which they have many. Quig has always been Gabi's go-to confidant which made her an obvious choice as a bridesmaid. Gabi feels incredibly lucky to have Quig's warm and joyful presence by her side.

Kevin Keneally

Groomsman

Before he took on the role of groomsman, Jack's youngest brother Kevin was his teammate during the Keneally brothers' two-on-two basketball games. Growing up, Jack's friends and teammates will remember Kevin for wreaking havoc on the sidelines of Jack's sporting events and occasionally making an uninvited appearance on the court during the game. Jack is hoping Kevin does not continue his habit of creating chaos as his groomsman. Always the contrarian, Kevin is the only non Jets fan in the family, but Jack will put aside those differences for the sake of the wedding.

Anne Kennedy

Bridesmaid

Fate brought Anne and Gabi together at Fairfield University, on the second night of freshman year, during a back to school party in a dark townhouse living room. From their first meeting, Anne and Gabi knew they would be lifelong friends, sharing their love of music, Disney films, Star Wars, and Old Gregg together. Anne and Gabi were roommates during their junior and senior years and filled their days throwing dance parties, sipping on wine and having many heart to hearts (when they weren't diligently studying, of course). Anne's loyal and loving nature are two of the countless treasured attributes that she brings to Gabi's bridal party, and Gabi feels blessed to be on the receiving end of Anne's unwavering friendship.

Harrison Pereyra

Groomsman

Jack and Harrison became friends during the fall of their freshman year at Fairfield. The two were brought together by their love of sports (specifically New York teams) and their mutual disdain for their roommate and good friend, Colin. After Jack and Gabi started dating, Gabi made sure to rope Harrison into her evil schemes, and the two have teamed up on various occasions to conspire against Jack. Over the years, Jack and Harrison have been by each others sides for a number of life's major moments, but Jack is most excited to celebrate the beginning of this new chapter with his best friend as his groomsman.

Shamel Guzman

Bridesmaid

Shamel and Gabi became fast friends during their freshman year at Fairfield. The two lived together on Fairfield Beach during their senior year, where they spent their days enjoying their beachfront abode, and their nights sticking to the booze covered floor at The Seagrape - the resident bar frequented by Fairfield U students. Shamel and Gabi can often be found discussing books, recapping the latest episode of The Real Housewives, or gossiping about their favorite bloggers. Shamel is always the first person on the dance floor and you will assuredly see her breaking it down at the reception. Gabi is eternally grateful to have her best friend by her side on her wedding day, as she knows that Shamel's steadfast devotion and hilarious wit can always get her through anything.
