LINDSAY - MATRON OF HONOR
Some of my earliest memories in life were stealing Lindsay's belongings so I could be as much like her as possible. In the years that have followed, not much has changed. Lindsay is my best friend and role model, there are very few days in our lives when we haven't talked at least once.
Elena and I met 5 years ago, and have had lunch with each other nearly every day since. Elena and I bonded over our love for craft projects, and the desire to make sure everything is done as efficiently as possible. I admire Elena's bravery and willingness to try new things - like teaching herself how to sew, and learning to code.
When Mary joined my team, I was intimidated by her experience . However, I quickly learned that Mary is someone who can play to many sides of her personality—she mixes hardcore training with being a yoga instructor, and has weekends that combine fly fishing and high fashion. She's also one of the most loyal people you'll ever meet, and will do just about anything for her friends.

AARON - BEST MAN
As kids, Aaron and I were as different as could be - while he could be found building a ramp to launch him and his skateboard, I could be found in a quiet place reading. As we've gotten older, I've come to appreciate how Aaron's passion for life rubs off on everyone around him.
I met Max 10 years ago at work, and we've since grown from work friends to real friends over hikes, bike rides and board games. Max and I share a sense of humor and will very quickly fall into a back-and-forth of jokes that we find hilarious (even if our partners don't).
I met Peter when he moved from Seattle to California, and he immediately classed up my wardrobe by convincing me to buy a new sport coat. Peter is one of the most positive people I know, and he's taught me to be a better negotiator, and to tidy my desk before leaving work on Fridays.
We really can't imagine anyone but Will officiating - we admire his kindness, patience, and devotion to his family. To delight the Spanish speakers in the audience, Will plans on reciting the whole 3 hour ceremony in both languages.
Since the moment Parker was born, we've been so proud to be his Aunt and Uncle. Our greatest joy in life is to make him laugh, and we constantly try to do fun things with him so he likes us more than anyone else (sorry, Grandma and Grandpa). Parker is an expert bubble blower, friend to all doggies, and is the most likely to cut loose on the dance floor.
