Catherine is not only my younger sister but my best friend, and I couldn’t be luckier to have followed her to DC in 2015. We have more memories than I could ever recount going on family vacations as kids, navigating the scene at GW (one time, literally, when she convinced me to walk between campuses), and now learning how to do adulthood. We’ve definitely had some people fooled into thinking we’re twins.
Breanne and I became friends sophomore year of college at Villanova. We have countless memories strolling around campus, cheering on our basketball team (we almost got trampled storming the court and it was totally worth it), and planning late night study sessions in the library. I’m so thankful we both ended up in DC after college, and best of all, get to be each other’s bridesmaids this year.
Haley and I decided to live together sophomore year at Villanova having not really known each other that well as freshmen, and the rest is history. We were roommates for the rest of college (even visiting each other when we studied abroad). We became regulars at Maloney’s and Kelly’s, regulars at Villanova basketball games, and still keep up regular visits to each other’s cities.
Jamie and I grew up down the street from each other. You could find us biking around the neighborhood, playing dollhouse in the mornings before elementary school, and jamming out in Rockband with Catherine (we always made Jamie sing). Now, although we live in different states, we always make time to catch up when I’m back home in Connecticut.
Jordan and I were neighbors during my time living in DC. After many long dog walks and Adams Morgan "stoop" conversations, we became best friends. To this day, it isn't uncommon to find us strolling DC or Arlington together.
Jeremy was my first college roommate. Jeremy and I have been friends for 15+ years.. Jeremy, Doug, and I would spend most of our time boating together in Myrtle Beach. Jeremy is very handy and is known to have a to-do list from Victoria every time he visits.
Doug and I went to graduate school together at Coastal Carolina, but that was just the introduction point. Doug and I would be together almost daily at Doug's inlet house trying to repair boats we broke that day or figuring out if the tide was too low to make it back home.
Nick and I worked together for a number of years, but we really became friends over shared interests in concerts, boating and The Wharf. Nick is known to throw epic pool parties, but with the wedding in November, you will most likely find him burning up the dance floor.
