Tell us a little about you and your beloved: We met in college at William Jessup University. We started dating in January of 2008, Parker proposed the day after Christmas this past year at Strands Beach in Laguna Niguel.
Parker coaches Cross Country and Track at William Jessup, and Maria works for the State. In our free time we love being outdoors and seeing our family and friends!
What was the most amazing part of your day? Having all of our family and friends there to celebrate with us. We are especially thankful for the best man traveling from Sweden!
What else would you like to share about your big day? We are extremely thankful to our family for all of their support and encouragement — our day would not have been as special if it weren’t for them.
