Lori K. Marsh (Avelar)
Friend
It was a weekend evening in 2004, when Lori was out with a group of friends. They decided to make one more stop to pick up a “certain someone." They pulled up to a house in Diamond bar, and a girl walked out, waving at the car - it was Lisa.

She jumped in the backseat with Lori and introduced herself. She was loud and had a huge smile, so naturally they hit it off. They made it to their destination, and as the boys took off to hit on “chicks,” Lisa and Lori sat at a booth watching all the madness going on, talking up a storm.

That was the start of her friendship and many adventures with the beautiful bride.

On the weekends, they'd go to house parties where Dames of Jive (DOJ), their dance crew would perform their "Bambi" routines.

Kaycee Ruiz
Friend
Kaycee and Lisa met through a mutual friend in high school, and at that time Kaycee was not aware of the significant impact Lisa would have on her life.

Through years of friendship, not only were they partners in crime, but both have shared many tears and joyous moments together.

Lisa has been Kaycee's support system for the last 20 years and Kaycee can't think of a better way to repay Lisa with her friendship by standing with Lisa and Hans on their wedding day!

Kaycee currently works in Finance for a Government Agency and is married with two boys. On her spare time you can find her on a soccer field or globetrotting.

Together, they went exploring on some of the wildest adventures from Orange County to Arizona, which bonded them to become close.

Todd Freeman
Friend
Todd met Hans in 2004 through his old girlfriend. (Lisa won't read that part...just kidding.) He considers Hans one of his closest friends, having always been there for Todd when he needed him most.

A testament to their friendship that Todd holds very close to his heart is the day his father died. Hans dropped everything and came to the hospital to be with him. Always around to cheer him up or give him a swift kick in the butt when needed.

The two can go weeks (or even) months without chatting or seeing each other, but somehow manage to always pick right back up where they left off - as if it was only yesterday.

Todd is an avid world traveler and ocean cruiser. He went on his first cruise in 2000 with family - recently completing his 39th cruise sailing the Pacific and South Pacific for a month. He's now visited 87 countries, with a goal to continue adding to the list.

Todd hails from San Diego and currently lives in Phoenix, selling real estate since 2001.

P.S. - He's also a Starbucks junkie....which Hans can attest to.
