Maid of Honor: Lauren Daily
Erin met Lauren during their freshmen orientation at CU Boulder, but they didn’t become friends until they met again living on the same dorm floor. They bonded over silly TV shows and their mutual love for the Buffs (Lauren was a cheerleader in college). Lauren and Erin lived together the next two years and have been best friends ever since. Lauren is graduating in May with her Master’s Degree in Social Work from Bryn Mawr University. Erin is hoping that she will move home to Colorado following graduation (no pressure, Lauren)!
Best Man: Charlie Hiller
Danny met Charlie shortly after he was born. The two have been like brothers ever since. Charlie is currently residing in Florida while maintaining a close relationship with Danny and the fam. He works at Stetson University as a hat manufacturer… JK, web developer. Charlie is always in Danny’s corner and there is nothing he wouldn’t do for him (oh, and he made this website).
Ali Lewis: Bridesmaid
Erin and Ali met in middle school (Go Cyclones!) where they became close friends in sixth grade. They continued their friendship in high school where they played tennis together. Ali currently lives in the Big Apple and works in publishing. Danny and Erin saw Ali in New York two summers ago when they visited the city.
Danny Harshman: Groomsman
Danny and Danny are not only name twins, but have become best of friends after their girlfriends introduced them on a double date. Danny happens to be better than Danny at fantasy football but that hasn’t (yet) come between them. I’ll let you guess which Danny is truly the champ… Danny Harshman is an Excel wizard. Ask him yourself if you want to know what he does. We still don’t understand.
Ellen Macy: Bridesmaid
Erin and Ellen became acquainted in high school (Go Panthers!) when they played tennis together and worked at the same salon. Despite their mutual love for fun nail polish, they didn’t become close until a salon reunion. They took their boyfriends (the Danny twins) on a double date, and a great friendship was born. Ellen and Danny are our neighbs (really, they live next door) and the four of them took a neighbs road trip last summer. They recently adopted an adorable puppy, Remy, who Erin is contemplating dognapping.
James Grant: Groomsman
Danny and James lived together during Danny’s junior year at CU (Go Buffs! I beat Erin to that!) They became best bros living together and playing Mine Craft into the wee hours of the morning (yeah… we know how to have a good time). James now lives in Chicago and works at a company that sells super cool equipment to professional sports teams. He got to witness his Cubs win a world series this year and is very excited to watch the Rockies do the same in 2017 (a kid can dream…).
Jessica Imhoff: Bridesmaid
Erin and Jess met in middle school where the saga of them being confused for one another began. Teachers, fellow students and even Jess’ dad mistook one for the other. Erin and Jess don’t think they look alike. After graduating from college, Jess made the leap to pursue her dream of working in photography and moved to Manhattan where she now lives. Danny and Erin exploited her phenomenal photo skills by asking her to take their engagement pictures (one of which was featured on your save the date). Kudos, Jess!
Jordan Cahn: Bridesmaid
Erin and Jordan met through mutual friends in high school and also played tennis together (yes, there is a trend). After high school, Jordan pursued college in Ohio and spent a great deal of time traveling to South and Central America while working for Amigos! She is now in medical school at the University of California Irvine. Because of this, Erin plans on asking Jordan all sorts of medical questions and medical diagnoses which she will love. (Wait… Jordan did Amigos?)
Kevin Klatman: Groomsman
Danny met Kevin shortly after Kevin was born. They have been close their whole lives. Kevin is a practicing stand-up comedian, so there is some pressure to make this funny. The pair lived together Danny’s senior year. They play on the same softball team and occasionally go bowling together. Being totally honest, Kevin usually comes out on top. Kevin hopes to become a professional comedy writer in NY or LA upon completing his accounting degree at CU (congrats Kevin).
Megan McGovern: Bridesmaid
Erin and Megan became friends in college at CU Boulder and quickly bonded over their love for pugs and trash-talking sports teams playing the Buffs. Megan knows more about sports than anyone Erin has met (literally, ask her anything). She recently graduated with her Master’s Degree in Horticulture from the University of Arkansas (Woo Pig Sooie!) and has since moved home to Colorado which makes Erin very happy.
Robin Eckmann: Groomsman
Danny and Robin go way back. They first met when they were 13 years old when the two went on a bike ride the day before Danny’s first race. The two became fast friends. In one of their first races, Danny ran over a younger racer as he was sprinting to the line against the Eckmann brothers. Needless to say, Danny did not win that race. The kid also did not appreciate being run over. The two became best of friends in high school as they played pranks on staff and the rest of the student body… great times!
Sam Zephirin: Bridesmaid
Erin and Sam have known each other forever (well almost, 20 years). Sam is Erin’s oldest friend as they met at the age of five when they lived in the same neighborhood. The two also went to elementary school together. Erin and Sam have many fond memories of playing as kids, camping in the basement, choreographing goofy dances and producing the Pet Olympics (don’t ask). They lived together their senior year of college at CU Boulder, and Sam now lives in San Diego.
Steph Hensen: Bridesmaid
Erin and Steph met their freshmen year of college at CU Boulder when they lived on the same dorm floor. They became close friends and lived together their junior year of college. After graduation Steph moved to California and recently moved to South Dakota with her fiancé. She is getting married in October 2017, and Erin is so excited to return the favor and be her bridesmaid!
Yannick Eckmann: Groomsman
Believe it or not, Danny met Yannick at the same time he met Robin. Danny and Yannick raced each other for a couple of years, then Yannick got really fast and has since gone pro. He is currently racing Cyclocross professionally for Boulder Cyclesport. Yannick is a bit younger than his brother and Danny, but has always been a part of the crew. He just celebrated his 21st birthday… just kidding; we just always think that he is 21.
