Courtney was born and raised in Eau Claire, WI. After high school, she moved to Menomonie to attend the University of Wisconsin-Stout, where her passion for history was born. After two years in Menomonie, Courtney moved back to Eau Claire to attend University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire where she graduated with a degree in history.
Courtney's past times include shopping, shopping, and more shopping (with coupons, of course)!
Andrew was born and raised in Marshfield, WI. Throughout elementary school, junior high, and high school, he was always outside playing football, playing basketball, skateboarding, and snowboarding. During the cold and rainy days, Andrew and his friends would play video games into the wee hours of the morning.
After graduating high school, Andrew moved to Menomonie, WI to attend the University of Wisconsin-Stout. During this time, he developed a knack for web design and web development.
Courtney and Andrew met over an intense game of Jumbling Towers (knock-off brand of Jenga). After the blocks fell (and Andrew won), they continued their new-found friendship by talking and hanging out every week.
After a year and a half of dating, Andrew was offered a job to head the web development at a design firm in Seattle, WA. They couldn't pass this up so they headed out to Seattle and continued their relationship. After arriving in Seattle, Courtney got a job as an administrative assistant at a large wholesale grocery cooperative on the West coast.
One year after moving to Seattle, Andrew got on one knee and proposed to the love of his life.
The lovely couple will be married at Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Altoona, WI at 3:30pm.
This is where the real celebration begins. The ceremony will be followed by drinking! Cocktail hour will be taking place at the Holiday Inn ballroom in Eau Claire, WI at 5:00pm.
Dinner will be served at 6pm with intense dancing to finalize the night. You better have your dancing shoes!
The Holiday Inn is offering special rates for the wedding weekend. If you decide to purchase a room through the hotel, let them know that you are with the Keehn/Tarcon clan so you can get a discount!
Heather is Courtney's big sister and best friend. Heather has helped Courtney out in more ways than she can count. Courtney doesn't know where she would be today without such an amazing role model.
Megan is Courtney's cousin and "kindred spirit." Whenever these two get together, it always turns into one huge laugh fest. Most of the time they don't even know what they are laughing about!
Ashley is Courtney's oldest friend (they have been friends since they were both babies). Growing up, Ashley and Courtney were joined at the hip and have maintained their friendship throughout their adult years.
Heather and Courtney met freshman year of high school. They have been great friends ever since.
Brian and Andrew have been great friends since day one. Together, they used to prance around at recess in elementary school, shoot hoops in junior high, and play video games in high school and college.
James is the best older brother Andrew could ever ask for. Even though they live far apart, Andrew thinks about his big brother on a daily basis.
Ryan was one of Andrew's right-hand men throughout high school and college. When together, they are inseparable. Their shared sense of humor and interests has made them a great duo.
Nic or "Lil' Nicky" can always put a smirk on Andrew's face. Ever since junior high, Nic has been one of Andrew's closest friends and confidants.
Kyle's friendship, kindness, and generosity has been irreplaceable. Kyle and Andrew were roommates throughout their college years and Andrew will never forget the great memories that were made during those years.
Trin has been making Courtney and Andrew giggle ever since he met them randomly in the UW-Stout dormitories. Trin's sense of humor and kindness has made him one of Courtney and Andrew's premier friends.
