Weddings and Babies: 2018 Winter
Congrats to these Zags who tied the knot or welcomed new members into the family, as published in the Winter 2018 issue of Gonzaga Magazine.
A few years after first meeting at Jack and Dan’s, ’16 Allyson Reimers and ’14 Ryan Andrade became husband and wife at St. Aloysius Catholic Church. They were surrounded by more than 40 Zags ranging from the classes of 1979 to 2018, including eight members of the bridal party.
’13 Lauren Berry and ’13 Conner Sheppard tied the knot in Paradise Valley, Ariz., where Sheppard’s high school football coach presided over the ceremony, and 33 multigenerational Zags offered love and support. The two met during their freshman year through the Hogan program and the all-freshman dorm, Catherine-Monica, eventually dating after studying abroad together in Florence.
