Kim

and

Manny

Wedding Party

Jessica Langford

Maid of Honor

Jessica and I have been friends since K-Garten! She is my soul sister and I am so lucky to have had her in my life all this time and all the years to come. When I think about my friendship with Jess, I can't help but smile. We just get each other. You should most likely expect a live rendition of a Mariah Carey song at the Reception... so make sure your socks are secure. -K

Derek "Scooper" Duarte

Best Man

Derek and I met when, well, he was born. I changed his first diaper at home and always felt like I was his protector. Before I knew it, he was grown and graduating from High School and has now started a family of his own. My brother and I are not just brothers, we are best friends and I couldn't be prouder of the man and father he has become.-M

Marshawn Morla

Bridesmaid

Marshawn and I met when I started working at Amador Eye Care in 2007. She pulled my chair out from under me and we quickly became besties. We have been through it all together and always seem to find a way back to each other, personally and professionally. When I think about our friendship, I can't help but laugh. We seem to do a lot of that. You should expect a live rendition of "If I could turn back time" or some air fiddle playing to "The devil went down to Georgia" at the reception. Again, make sure your socks are secured. -K

Franklin "Black" Pratt

Groomsman

Franklin and I met at Sheridan High School and quickly became friends. Not long after, we started Black & Blue Records. He was the rapper (Black) and I was the DJ (Blue). After college, we moved in together until I moved to California and he found his wife Michelle. We might not talk as often as best friends should, but we always pick up like we never missed a beat. -M

Jessica Watson

Bridesmaid

Jessica and I have also been friends since our days back in Mrs. Kirkpatrick's K-Garten class! She is one of my dearest friends and I can't imagine life without her in it. She is one of the most focused and passionate humans I know, never letting anything get in the way of her goals or beliefs. It's the thing I love most about her. You should expect to see the "Boot Scootin Boogie" like you've never seen it before. Do they make suspenders for socks? -K

Nicholas "Duff" Duffy

Groomsman

Duffy and I met through Kim. He is one of her dearest friends and pretty quickly became one of mine. Duffy is a whirlwind. He comes in for the weekend and brings excitement, laughter, and sometimes frustration. He isn't afraid to speak his mind and debate with me even if we really disagree. Duffy has become one of "our" best friends and will always remain our favorite weekend guest! -M

Wendy Mathis

Bridesmaid

Wendy and I met when I was born. She is my big sissy and an amazing friend of mine. Of course, growing up we had our moments, but I wouldn't trade her for the world. She has shown me what it is like to be an awesome wife and mom and I couldn't be happier to have her here to guide me as I start my own journey. You should expect to see Cody in between this sister sandwich on the dance floor at the reception. Don't worry, I think he likes it. -K

Cody "Get You Some" Mathis

Groomsman

I was lucky enough to gain another friend when I met Kim's family the first time. Cody is married to Kim's sister Wendy. These two sisters sure know how to pick good guys! ;) Cody is an all around great guy to have in your life. He is not just a great husband and dad, but a hard worker with an awesome sense of humor and sense of adventure. -M

Jenni Bradley

Bridesmaid

I was lucky enough to gain another big sister when our parents got married when I was 5 years old. What can I say about my sister? She is hardworking, motivated, an amazing wife and mom, an all around beautiful person to have in my life. Oh, and she loves to drink wine with me! You should expect to see us rocking out to Bon Jovi or the like at the reception, so you're welcome :) -K

Jerry "Who's your Caddy?" Mix

Groomsman

Jerry is Kim's older brother. We hit it off from the minute we met because we have so many things in common. Jerry made an effort to be my friend outside of just the normal family stuff. We ride our bikes together, go to races, sporting events, and just have a great time together. I'm lucky to call him my friend and not just my brother in law. -M

Venissa Morse

Bridesmaid

I met V through Marshawn quite a few years ago, but it wasn't until we started working together a couple years ago that we really forged a bond that I don't ever want to be without. V is sunshine in a mason jar. She is one of the most positive people that I have ever met and I like to think that I am better because of her. You should expect a Janis Joplin duet from the two of us at the reception. I guess my friends and I love to sing and dance. :) -K

Mike "Maquito" Medina

Groomsman

Mike and I met in Kindergarten at Von Renner Elementary. We grew up together in our small town of Newman and continued our friendship into adulthood. We now have the pleasure of being family because him and my sister got together and now have 4 beautiful children that I get to be an uncle to. -M

Natasha Ballew

Bridesmaid

Tasha and I met when I started working at the Rancheria. She thought I didn't like her at first, but that couldn't have been farther from the truth. Tasha has the most beautiful soul and I just can't imagine my life without her in it. She also has really good taste in music. And wine. I look forward to our talks together no matter what they are about and our weekend evening texts. ;) You should expect to see us stomping our heels off to Cody Jinks or Chris Stapleton at the reception so watch your toes. -K

Elliot "Freshmode" Langford

Groomsman

Elliot is married to Kim's best friend Jessica and from the first time we met, I knew we would be friends. Elliot is also a DJ and we love to talk music, go on weekend trips with our ladies, and mix some sweet jams. Elliot is one hell of a guy and an awesome example of what a husband and father should be. -M
