The Wedding Party

Sarah's attendants
  • Billie Washburn, Maid Of Honor
    Billie and I have been friends since the beginning. Our parents are still next door neighbors back home in Lewistown which has made our friendship even stronger. Billie and I have been through it ALL together. After graduating high school we both decided to go to Columbia College where we truly enjoyed the college life. Since then we have been roommates, work out buddies, road trip partners, best friends, and everything in-between. I honestly don't know where I would be in my life without this girl. She is a great listener, gives wonderful advice, and is constantly pushing me to be a better person. I am so happy to have Billie as a Maid of Honor because I know she will be there for me throughout this entire wedding process and for the rest of my life.
  • Jordan Lay, Maid Of Honor
    I am lucky enough to have TWO best friends and TWO Maids of Honor!! Jordan is like my sister, she has been there for me my whole life. I remember going to her house for one of my very first sleepovers. Just like every little girl, we talked about weddings and I knew way back then that Jordan would be my Maid of Honor. Jordan and I have had many fun nights, vacations, and long chats on the phone together. We are probably two of the few people in America that still use the US Postal system, but we LOVE to send cards, notes, and packages back and forth. No matter the distance we are still close at heart. I am really looking forward to her sharing in my special day.
  • Ashley Sharpe, Bridesmaid
    Ashley is another one of the Lewistown Girls! That town didn't know what to do when all 4 of us met up to go do something. Lewistown was definitely good to us and the fun continued when Ashley joined Billie and I in Columbia. I don't see Ashley as much now that she lives in Kansas City, but we have had many conversations about how the distance doesn't change our friendship. Because when we all get back together in Lewistown, you better watch out! :)
  • Kelsey Taylor, Bridesmaid
    I became friends with Kelsey way back in my days at Small Talk Daycare. I think she is the one to blame for my love of "Ice Ice Baby". I remember her and I making up our own dance moves to that song and playing it over and over again on the tape player! No wonder I know all the words :) Kelsey is one of those girls that you can go months and months without seeing, but when you get together everything picks up right where you left off. I love this about her. Even if I don't see her between now and the wedding, I know she will be a great bridesmaid and it will be exactly the same between the two of us. I can't wait for the reception, because I'm sure "Ice Ice Baby" will be on our karaoke list :)
  • Jessica Bringer, Bridesmaid
    Jessica is my cousin, but growing up were were much more like sisters. For those of you who don't know, Jessica's mom Julie and my dad Jack are twins. When Jessica and I were born we were only 10 weeks apart! We were practically inseparable when we were growing up. We had sleepovers, played school, stayed with Grandma and Grandpa, and took all kinds of amazing family vacations together. I have so many memories from those summer trips in their van. I hope when we have kids we can get together and take them to some of the awesome places that we went on our vacations. I was lucky enough to be a bridesmaid in Jessica's wedding last summer. She was a beautiful bride and the wedding was a ton of fun! I am excited that she is going to be a bridesmaid for my big day this December.
  • Addison Nahler, Flower Girl
    Addison is the daughter of Candice and Landon Nahler and the niece of Billie Washburn. I think Addison and Logan are going to be the cutest little people in the wedding :)
  • Logan Nahler, Ring Bearer
    I am so excited for Logan and his twin sister Addison to be our ring bearer and flower girl!
Nick's attendants
  • Justin Kolasa, Best Man
    Justin has been one of my closest friends for as long as I can remember. We started off playing soldiers when we were younger, and we both ended up being soldiers after college. No matter what group of friends I found myself hanging out with over the years, Justin has always been around. Whether it was building tree houses, trying to learn the guitar, or drinking profusely, Justin always fit in. In many ways, we are a lot alike. That said, he also has many qualities I lack, like a conscience. This makes him a perfect fit for my Best Man. No matter where this winding road called life goes, I know Justin will be right there with me, riding shotgun.
  • Zach Setzer, Best Man
    My little brother is several years younger than me, which means not only did he have to put up with my shit as we were growing up, he was helpless to do anything about it. Needless to say, I had a lot of fun at his expense. From playing against me in a very one-sided game of dodgeball, to hanging by his underwear on a doorknob, Zach was always a good sport. Though I've been away from home a lot in the last several years, I've gotten to see hints of the man Zach will become, and I am proud to call him my brother.
  • Kirk Butler, Groomsman
    When I first joined ROTC, I looked around and was dismayed to see that most of the potential officers around me were, in fact, dweebs. I was very fortunate to meet Kirk, a non-dweeb and a kindred spirit when it comes to partaking in shenanigans. While most of the cadets around us were getting a chubby over the intricacies of standing in formation, Kirk and I were always finding a way to make each other laugh. To this day, no story I have tops the 'Streaking Incident of 2008', in which Kirk and I were detained by police for being publicly intoxicated, as well as publicly naked.
  • Scott Haefele, Groomsman
    The first time I met Scott, I was planning his funeral. We were in 6th grade, and he had the audacity to date my ex-girlfriend. Luckily, the heartbreak of middle school doesn't last long. In 9th grade, during a weightlifting class Scott and I had together, we ended up becoming good friends. Over the course of the years, from high school through college, we have shared many drunken nights, discussing the complexities of women, money, and life. Scott always has a wise thought for a listening ear. To this day, I consider him one of my best buds. And though he probably doesn't believe it, he was officially removed from the 'Hit List' long ago.
  • Nick Jacobs, Groomsman
    Nick became a huge part of my life when he started working at Apple Market with me, back when I was in high school. That job was one of those rare ones that because of the guys I worked with, I actually looked forward to going in. We did a lot of dumb shit, and we had a blast doing it. Nick is one of those genuine guys that truly cares about people, and he was there for me when I was at my lowest. He's one of the goofiest dudes I know, but that's one of the things I love about him. To this day, I can't think of a nicer guy. Plus, he's also engaged to my best girl-bro, Maggie.
  • Zack Saavedra, Groomsman
    Zack is my 'brother from another mother'. When we were in high school, we were inseparable. People actually began to think we were related. We'd walk around with our chests puffed out in shirts that were probably a bit too tight. We would shamelessly hit on girls in the hallways between classes. When Zack lived with my family during high school, we would go home and think of the dumbest thing we could possibly do, and then do it. We were always trying to push each other to the limit. We have both calmed down a bit in the last several years, but I don't think a man can call himself a man unless he's had that friend like Zack.
