The Couple

The Bride

Laura—daughter of Fred & Elaine Hersh—grew up in Emmaus, Pa, about an hour north of Philadelphia. She attended Edinboro University and graduated with a degree in Graphic Design. She's currently a designer at YETI Coolers. When she isn't working, Laura enjoys binge watching geeky tv shows on Netflix, spending time in Austin, and going to TJ Maxx with Sean.

The Groom

Sean—son of Tim & Edye Gwin—grew up in New Castle, Pa, north of Pittsburgh. After a music filled high school career, Sean attended Edinboro University to pursue a degree in Nursing as an ROTC cadet. He's currently stationed at the military hospital in San Antonio as a 1st lieutenant, med-surg nurse. When he isn't working on his Graduate degree, he enjoys trips to the nearby lake, improving his Jeep Wrangler, and playing with their pets.

Our
Story

Sean and Laura met on October 26th, 2013 at a small Halloween party hosted by Laura’s friend, Alex—their maid of honor. Laura was a Stormtrooper, and Sean was a weird red man, patriotic dude. Sean and Laura didn’t speak much throughout the night, but got in touch a few days later. After a few dates, they made their relationship Facebook official. During the summer of 2015, they made the move to central Texas, where Sean is stationed for the US Army. After three months apart while he was in Fort Knox, Sean proposed to Laura on August 9th, in front of San Antonio’s Tower of the Americas. The couple and their new pup, Lilly, split their time between San Antonio, Austin, and their new home of New Braunfels.
