The Girls

 

Paige Sammis

Maid-of-Honor

Paige is my “little” sister, if little counts as just 11 months younger than me.  I was lucky to have Paige attend TCU with me, having her and her closet in Fort Worth made college just that much better.  Since Paige is a Fashion/Merchandising major I have dragged her to every bridal appointment possible to help me find my perfect dress and I am glad to say we found a winner!  I am so thankful to have her as my maid of honor but more so as my sister.

 

 

Parker Sammis

Maid-of-Honor

Parker is my sweet baby sister.  She is currently a sophomore at Ole Miss (Go Rebs!).  She is extremely good at planning parties/ events.  Every high school prom/ homecoming Parker was always booking the coolest party buses, reserving tables at the best restaurants, and making sure there was always a great after party.  I can’t wait for Parker to come home for the summer so she can continue to help me with the “dos” and don’ts” for the reception.  She also has a great sense of humor and I know she will keep me laughing the whole day! I am so lucky to have her as my maid of honor and more importantly my sister!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Anderson Pearce

Bridesmaid

Anderson is one of my beautiful cousins (or as we say cuzzziesss!).  Honestly Anderson looks more like the fourth Sammis sister.  She is from Georgia and will be attending UGA next year!  I am so excited to have her as one of my bridesmaids.

 

Ashley Nemer

Bridesmaid

Ashley (aka Nemer) is one of my oldest/ closet friends. I have known Ashley since we were 7 years-old! We have attended the same elementery school, middle school, high school, and college! As if going to school together for 16 years wasn't enough, we even roomed together our freshman and senior year at TCU.  Ashley is an amazing friend and I know she will make sure the big day is perfect!

 

Shannon Wallace

Bridesmaid

Shannon is one of my best high school friends.  Ashley, Shannon and I have remained good friends even though she went to SMU.  In high school we would have "porch parties" and take many "three-ies" pictures.  Shannon shares a love of antiquing with me and we one day plan to rent a u-haul to fill up with treasures from Canton.

 

 

Meghan Jahr

Bridesmaid

Meghan is also a best friend from high school.  We played high school golf together and were “roommates” at every tournament.  Most of the best memories I have of golf involve Meghan and I (It seems like yesterday we were prank calling the boys team from our hotel room.)  After high school Meghan went to college in California so after 4 years of separation it only made since for us to become neighbors at our apartment in Dallas!

 

 

Kensey Gilbert

Bridesmaid

Kensey is of my best friends from college. We have been roomies for three years now, in two houses, one apartment, and two cities.  Once we both graduated from TCU and got jobs in Dallas it was only natural for us to live together again. This made the transition from college to the real world easy as can be.  Kensey is a great friend and I can count on her for anything.  Together we both successfully own every color pencil skirt J. Crew has ever made and every pair of Nike shorts and matching tanks there ever was.

 

 

Caroline Lorio

Jr. Bridesmaid

Caroline is one of my sweet sweet cousins.  She is a senior at Highland Park High School and lives here in Dallas.  She is extremely talented and smart! I can still remember when she was a baby dancing at my aunt’s wedding which is fitting since she is on the high school drill team.  Since Emanuel and I have NO dancing skills I am hoping Caroline will show us some of her moves so we don’t look too ridiculous at the wedding!

 

Emily Owens

Jr. Bridesmaid

Emily is another one of my sweet cousins! She is going to be a freshman in high school next year. She lives in Alexandria Virginia and I don’t’ get to see her enough!  Emily is very talented and athletic which is why she is such an awesome lacrosse player.  She also has a bubbly personality and is very thoughtful.  I can’t wait for her to get here!

 

 

Sara King

House Party

There is so much to say about Sara.  Not only does her family vacation and sail around Cape Cod/ Martha’s Vineyard/ Nantucket like my family, but she too is dating a Romanian.  I first met Sara when Emanuel and I first started hanging out because she was dating one of his best friends/ groomsman Cosmin.  Long story short we had so much in common we became quick friends.  We both went to Romania for Christmas which is an experience neither one of us will forget! I am so excited to have her as a part of the wedding; she will truly be a long time friend.

 

Kathleen Ward

House Party

Not only did Kathleen and I go to the same middle school, high school, and college, we live in the same apartment complex and in August will work in the same building.  Kathleen was also the person that got me going to boot camp this year to get in shape for the big day, even though it almost killed me ha! I am so glad Emanuel and I are only moving down the block/ we have 5 more months of boot camp! I can’t wait to have Kathleen with me to celebrate wedding day!
