She is a 2005 graduate of Kennewick High School and a 2009 graduate of the College of Wooster with a bachelor's degree in physics.

The bride wore a strapless taffeta gown with a sweetheart neckline and a chapel train. The multi-pleated champagne bodice contrasted with an unadorned ivory A-line skirt with side and back pleats. The empire waist was emphasized with rhinestone accents and the back was decorated with a row of hand-beaded buttons. She fashioned her own bouquet of red roses wrapped in ivory satin ribbon.
The bridesmaids were Ellen Wagner and Adrienne Mills. They wore strapless knee length dresses of iridescent pink taffeta and carried handmade bouquets of white roses wrapped in pink satin ribbon. The best man was David Fram, who also acted as ring-bearer and gave the toast at the reception, a Thai luncheon held immediately following the ceremony.
Tyler Lewis played the piano as guests arrived at the wedding. Sandra Lewis provided piano music during the ceremony.
After a traditional bouquet toss and send-off, the couple left the reception for a honeymoon camping along the Oregon coast. They currently reside in Madison, Wisconsin.
