Meet the Wedding Party: Sharon Maloney

Name: Sharon Maloney

Status: Bridesmaid...and my Godmother!

How We Met: Uh...she's my aunt. I was sort of born into this whole thing.

Favorite Memory: Lounging around at Big Chip, reading magazines, talking about life, and just doing a whole lot of nothing together. :) Or the first time that we went out to a bar together after I turned 21 and she was like, "I never thought I would be sitting at a bar with my goddaughter..."

Asking her to be a bridesmaid up at Big Chip last year...

...and the requisite pose with the cookie.

Sharon and I love us some Big Chip...and each other! :)

Meet the Wedding Party: Tyler Jay

Name: Tyler Jay

Status: Groomsman

How We Met: The summer that I met Shannon (summer 2007), we met one day when I went to Shannon's house to pick her up or drop her off.

Favorite Memory: Last summer, the three of us (Tyler, Shannon, and myself) were playing Catch Phrase. It was Shannon's turn to give the clues. Giving her clue, Shannon said (in her normal voice), "Some people say I have this when I talk." The correct answer was accent; Shannon has a Minnesoootain accent. However, before I could respond with the correct answer, Tyler said, "Lisp."

"No," Shannon replied. "If that was the answer, then I would have said, 'thome people thay I have thith when I talk.'" We all laughed for a very long time.

Notice how nice the weather looks and how comfortably we are dressed.

Notice how crappy the weather looks and how bundled up we are.

This was just last weekend. Everyone was there for Shannon's graduation from ISU.

My shirt is from my (previous) undergraduate university and Tyler's shirt is from his (future) undergraduate university. He is going to Kent State for musical theater.
