Maid Of Honor
My name is Jannette Maldonado; I have 4 children 3 grandbabies & 2 on the way. I currently reside in Rockford Illinois. I've known Mari since our mom brought her hairy behind home. I’ve changed her diaper, fed her Gerber food, and I received a lot of Butt whooping's because of her, but since she was the baby I had to protect her. I love my sitter, not a typo yes sitter (our nickname for each other) very much. I’m very happy for her but poor poor Keenan...... looking forward to making my sitters wedding one she will remember always..... Love you sitter

Maria and I have been best friends for 25 years. It all began when I moved next door to her. Maria was eleven years old and I was twelve years old. We instantly became best friends and we started hanging out with each other every single day. From then on and our childhood was never the same. We had such a blast in our younger years from sleepovers to childhood games. You name it, we did it. We had so much fun and were completely inseparable.
As we grew up we started to recognize that we were always on the same page. One day we realized that we had a similar vision of us being in heaven together. Maria and I were shocked and amazed that we were describing the same vision to each other. But the similarities didn't stop there. Our first born children were born in the same year, same month, and close to the same day!
As we grew up we somehow always stayed connected. Maria would faithfully come over for my Thanksgiving dressing, and I knew that we would remain friends forever. Today our friendship continues and it's always like old times when we get together. Maria and I always strive to be better women, daughters, sisters, aunts, and moms. We've also always had a passion for our families, and to become successful God- fearing women. I wouldn't say that we have arrived, but I'm very proud of where we are and who we are today. Congratulations to Maria and her marriage, this is something we've only dreamed about when we were younger!

My name is Maria and my cousin Mari (Maria) and I are bestes of friends and cousins, but more like sisters. We love eachother very much and I am so happy for her and Keenan and I cannot wait to be next to you as you say I do. ))
My name is Cynthia and I am a Beautiful, Strong, African American, Christian woman. I am a mother of 4 children ages 29yrs, 24yrs, 21yrs, and 16yrs old. I am also a “G-mom” of two wonderful grandsons. I love life and I strive to encourage others to live their life abundantly in all areas.
Maria is one of my best friends. I met Maria during a “valley season” in my life. God began to rain His blessings in my life and allowed our paths to cross in the year 2009. Our relationship has continued to flourish in supporting and loving one another without judging. It is easy to meet someone when your life is bringing up roses, but a true friend will be there when the storms of life are knocking at your door.
It is because of her I have a wonderful job with Excellus Blue Cross Blue Shield. I am forever grateful to know her and count it a blessing to be a part of her wonderful wedding
Elaine Ross Tearney,
My name is Elaine Tearney. I am a mother of 6 and am madly in love with my
man, my soul mate and my best friend, Ric.
I taught High School Math for ten years and transitioned into counseling
in 2008, which is how I met Maria. Maria and I worked at Home Headquarters,
Inc. as Housing Counselor's. We were first co-workers but quickly became
friends. Since I have known Maria I have known her to be creative,
loving, caring, and compassionate. Most of all Maria is very resourceful.
My main job is for Onondaga County as a Probation Officer (I love my job).
Michelle Coville- Cottom,
My name is Michelle Coville and I happen to be lucky enough to be Maria's neighbor. I moved into the neighborhood about 3 plus years ago, just after she did and it's been friends ever since. We somehow even ended up finishing our associates at the same school together, so I think somehow we would have met either way.
For my profession, I am the Team Leader for Liberty Travel. For hobbies, I love hiking, running, singing, art, nutrition and just plain having fun. I am a vegetarian and I truly believe that everything we do, and how we treat people and creatures alike makes a difference and an impact.
My small family consists of my 2 dogs, 2 cats, 2 fish, and my new husband, Ben. Ben and I eloped in Costa Rica September 18th (surprise everyone) so now my time is spent between my home in Lyncourt, and my husband's country property in Summer Hill.
I look forward to meeting everyone and being a part of Maria and Keenan's special day.
My name is Clovia and I actually meet Maria through my boyfriend and groomsman Aaron, who is best friends with (dogg) AKA Keenan. Keenan and I grew up together and have known eachother for over 20 years. I am happy to have met Maria to know her is to love her. She is a great friend and I am so happy for her and Dogg as this is true Love!
