Weddings & Babies: 2017 Fall
’12 Tim Ramos and ’12 Meredith Hickman Ramos (photographed at top of page) were married in December in a traditional Catholic wedding at the Basilica of St. Martin of Tours in the Philippines, where Tim’s family resides, surrounded by friends and family from around the world. The couple also held a Seattle ceremony for immediate family in July 2016 after purchasing their first home in the Wallingford neighborhood. The two Zags met on the first day of college in Catherine Monica residence hall. They were friends for much of their college career before dating their junior year, and were engaged on Christmas in 2015.
’04 Taylor Madison and ’07 Liza Turner tied the knot at Montana’s Flathead Lake after dating for five years. Mutual friends at Gonzaga introduced the two. With an all-Zag wedding party and dozens more in attendance, their weekend was full of love and Gonzaga spirit. The couple reside in Seattle with their honorary Bulldog, a Great Dane named Moesley.
Class of 2011 grads Ryan Reese and Shannon McCann joined the throngs of Zags who met and married at Gonzaga (literally). They held their September 2016 ceremony at St. Al’s with several classmates in the bridal party and even had a visit by Spike at their wedding reception.
