Sean and Ben were officemates his first year in grad school back in 2011. They both went on to become high energy physicists working at CERN in Switzerland together. Ben moved to NYC and became a close friend of Sara and Sean watching over June whenever they went out of town. He’s been around the two of them for a long time and knows their relationship better than anyone else. The perfect man for the job of officiant!
The Maid of Honor
Amy is Sara’s older sister and best friend. She has always been Sara’s biggest supporter and has always been encouraging with the many random hobbies she picks up. Even though they live far apart now, they make up for it by sending pictures of their pets to each other every day and trying to visit as much as possible.
The Best Boy
Matt was the first friend Sean met in grad school where they bonded over music and sports. After Sean moved back to Ohio from Switzerland they became roommates drinking black coffee and LaCroix’s every morning. Matt moved to NYC in 2021 and now they go to Mets games and Coney island every summer.
Jackie is one of Sara’s oldest friends from way back in elementary school. They grew up doing girl scouts, choir, and sports together in middle school, and in high school Jackie was the cool, outgoing friend who made sure Sara wasn’t too shy. They now will catch up every few months when Sara visits Ohio or with an hours long video chat spent mostly laughing.
Joel is one of Sean’s oldest friends. They met in latin class in highschool way back in 2003. Joel gave Sean a physics book in high school and they both went on to University of Florida to study physics together. They still keep in touch playing games over the internet a full 20 years later!
Sara and Carly met when they studied abroad together in Italy for the summer in 2012. They instantly bonded, getting lost around Italy drinking lots of wine and eating lots of gelato. When they got back to Ohio University, they spent Carly’s senior year basically living together. Now they live close enough to visit each other fairly often and create new hilarious memories together.
Sean met Joe in Switzerland while Joe was in grad school at the University of Geneva. They became fast friends nerding out about comedy and even started an english speaking improv team. Joe moved to the US in 2020 (bad timing!) and lived just a quick train away in Princeton NJ. Through the past 3 years he’s been a frequent visitor to the city where they go to comedy shows and try new restaurants.
Alexia and Sara became friends at Ohio University when Sara started hanging out with Alexia’s roommate Carly. Alexia and Sara instantly clicked having pizza and beer on the patio at Courtside and then spent almost every weekend the rest of her senior year hanging out. Now years out of college they still talk almost every day sharing stories, funny pictures, and life advice.
Another physicist! Sean met Andrew in college studying physics and later reconnected in Switzerland while they both worked at CERN. Together they went backpacking through Europe riding trains through many countries where they learned what historic palaces you can and can not play pokemon go.
Sara met Savanna when she moved to Columbus after college and got a job at the gym Savanna was a trainer at. After many shifts worked together they became close friends. Their time in Columbus was spent working out, getting coffee, and going to dance parties. Savanna also took the dreaded overnight bus to NYC with Sara like a champ. They make sure to see each other whenever Sara is back in Ohio and make up for missed coffee dates.
Sean met Curtis in an improv class in 2018 and where they started a practice group that evolved into one of NYCs best indie improv teams. After Curtis moved away in 2020 they still met every week to chat and do improv over Zoom. They meet up for a drink and a chat every now and again whenever he returns to town.
