Wedding Party

Kayla Whaley - Maid of Honor

Kayla and Katie met in February 2007 when visiting their future alma mater Georgia Southern. They became besties two years later through faith, superheroes, and Doctor Who. As once said by Katie's friend Emily after she met Kayla, "The form of Katie is complete with Kayla." The reverse is also true. Today they can usually be found, together or apart, in a bookstore or a coffee shop.

Morgan Bouchillon - Bridesmaid

Morgan and Katie met when Katie began attending Morgan's Sunday school class. Katie is the third Katie to have lived with Morgan during Morgan's illustrious career as a landlady, but she is repeatedly assured that she is the best Katie. They bonded over Hallmark movies, dogs, Shark Week, and American Ninja Warrior. Morgan also blessed Katie with the role of aunt to her dogs Ollie (now passed) and Addie.

Nicole Austin - Bridesmaid

Nicole and Tyler met in middle school. Nicole and Katie met through mutual friends their freshman year of college. Nicole and Katie reconnected in a Bible study small group and later went on to co-lead that same study for two and a half years. They bonded over pasta and long walks.

Addie Bouchillon - Flower Girl

Morgan's dog Addie will be serving as flower girl in spirit only, as she is too friendly, too prone to chewing, and too strong willed to serve in person. She is awfully cute, though.

Philip Sheffield - Best Man

Philip and Tyler met when Philip began dating Tyler's sister Rachel. Despite Philip being a Georgia fan (Tyler graduated from Georgia Tech), Tyler decided he was a good person and has been blessed by Philip's mentorship over the past 4 years. They bonded over golf, family get togethers, and the Braves.

Colby Lee - Groomsman

Tyler and Colby (and Corey) met in August 2006, their freshman year of college at Georgia Southern. They bonded over nerf gun wars and faith. Colby and his wife Tina also blessed Tyler with the role of uncle to their daughters Harper and Eleanor.

Corey Lee - Groomsman

Tyler and Corey (and Colby) met in August 2006, their freshman year of college at Georgia Southern. They bonded over food, board games, and faith. A few times a year, Corey treks south from NC to learn a new board game from Tyler and then beat him at it.
