Our wedding party

Kaitlyn and Andrew have their only siblings as Maid of Honor and Best Man, and have friends for their remaining bridesmaids, groomsmen, and ushers.

Read about each of the members of the wedding party individually below.

Kaitlyn's attendants
  • Meaghan Hanna, Maid Of Honor
    Meg is Kaitlyn's younger sister! Like Andrew and best man Michael, they spent a lot of time together growing up, including lots and lots of swimming. Meaghan graduated from Siena College in 2011 with a B.S. in Psychology, and is currently interning with the RPI swim team as an assistant coach.
  • Jessica Vanski, Bridesmaid
    Jess and Kaitlyn were random roommates when Kaitlyn transferred to the Hartt School. They continued as roommates in Kaitlyn's RA apartment, and stayed close through college. Jess and Kaitlyn share a love of bottles of wine and terrible movies. Jess graduated from the University of Hartford in 2010 with a degree in marketing. She currently works in New Haven.
Andrew's attendants
  • Aaron McGrath, Groomsman
    Aaron is a longtime friend of Andrew's. Not only did they become best friends in high school, but they both worked in the kitchen of Northwood's nursing home in high school and cleaned brass instruments at John Keal Music during summers in college. Aaron graduated from RIT in 2009 with a degree in film. He currently lives with his girlfriend Stephanie in Chicago, where he works for Apple and takes online courses in film from UCLA.
  • Jason Pitts, Groomsman
    Jason and Andrew were randomly assigned as apartment-mates in their first year at the Rockefeller University. They share an enjoyment of watching or doing all things athletic, including football, basketball, combat sports, and weight lifting. Jason and his fiancee Melanie moved to a one-bedroom apartment on campus just before Andrew and Kaitlyn, but they still find time to hang around on weekends. Jason graduated from Cornell in 2008, and at RU he is studying neuroscience in the lab of Marc Tessier-Lavigne.
  • Michael Schwendeman, Best Man
    Mike Is Andrew's younger brother and only sibling. At only two years apart, they did most things together growing up, highlighted by sports (tennis, golf, soccer, and others just for fun) and various trumpet activities: among them lessons, musical pit orchestras, and making the practice area messy so that Mom would think they had actually practiced (sorry Mom). Mike graduated from Cornell University in 2011 and currently lives in Seattle with his girlfriend Anna, where he is studying for a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering at UW.
