Our Story

No Corn. Just Cheese.

It all started with an 8 hour first date in the summer of 2010. The date began at the burger joint, The Stand, in the East Village. Drawn there for the toasted marshmallow milkshake, featured on “Best Thing I Ever Ate,” we began our 8 hour excursion. The next few hours were filled with the Chelsea Market, drinks on an old stationary, lightboat in the Hudson River, a walk on the Highline (an elevated train track converted into a park), and ending the night at a bar in Astoria.

  • Just 5 months after we began dating...

    Trent came home to Rochester, NY to meet Allison’s family for the first time. He brought home a Murray’s Cheese Plate in an effort to win them over. (He managed to get his fruit jam through security by telling the security agent he was meeting the family for the first time and needed all the help he could get)

  • Allison traveled to Chicago

    (her first step into the Midwest) to spend New Years with Trent and his friends.

  • Allison met Trent’s mom

    ... for the first time at an Italian dinner in Astoria.

  • Bryce’s Graduation

    The Lednars rented a house in Maine to stay while celebrating Bryce’s college graduation

  • Our first vacation together

    Where we had the most delicious Pina Colada’s know to man at Rieces.

  • Allison travels to Iowa

    Where she met Trent’s dad for the first time and came to truly understand what it means to feel full. The week was filled with family, fried butter and the Ozarks!

  • Trent's Family

    Allison goes home with Trent for Thanksgiving to meet the whole family

  • West Coast

    We spent a week in San Francisco with Trent’s Aunt Phyllis and Uncle Jerry

  • St. Thomas

    Trent’s 30th birthday spent in St. Thomas with Allison, Chris and Ryan. Partayyy

  • We moved in together

    Trent moved into Allison’s tiny studio in Astoria. Nothing can prove a stronger bond than happily living together in a 350 sq ft. abode.

  • Berlin

    Trent’s first trip to Europe! Trent and the Lednar clan visited Bryce in Berlin, Germany for a week.

  • OUR ENGAGEMENT

    Trent surprised Allison with an 8 day trip to Hawaii (Allison had thought that she was traveling to visit Trent for a long weekend in Seattle, where his project for work was located. Little did she know he had planned an elaborate vacation) Trent proposed on the beach the first night Allison arrived. Champagne, Saxophone, Fireworks, a private cabana …. more than anyone could ever dream of. She said YES and we had a week to celebrate in paradise!

  • Lednars and Haines meet for the first time

    Allison’s mom came to Iowa to spend a long weekend with Trent’s family. The Haines and the Lednars were brought together and bonded over a soulful Train concert at the Iowa State Fair.

  • IT’S OFFICIAL!!

    We can’t wait to share this day with all of our family and friends. Bring your dancing shoes because it’s going to be a PARTAY!

Bridesmaids

Carly Porreca

Maid of Honor

Carly and I were destined to be friends. We met the first week of college and have been inseparable ever since. Carly is my little pioneer woman. She literally knows how to do everything! (Refinish furniture, can vegetables, create amazing food from scratch, make jewelry, think of the most clever puns, and the list goes on) She is one of the most creative and crafty persons I know and I am so lucky to have her in my life.

Paige Lednar

Bridesmaid

Paige is my younger sister. Paige is one of the most creative and talented persons I know. She has grown into such a wonderful person and I’m proud to say I’m her sister. I know she is going to do great things with her life.

Mary Milazzo

Bridesmaid

Mary is my oldest and longest friend. I have known Mary since I can remember (technically since we were 5). We have been through everything together from girl scouts to recipes gone wrong to braces to broken hearts. She is always the first person I turn to when I need a shoulder.

Kim Reichard

Bridesmaid

Kim and I have been friends since the first week of college. I love Kim because she tells it like it is. If I don’t look good in something, she’s going to tell me. If I buy a skirt that I think is the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen and she disagrees, she will and has, literally thrown it out the window. Kim is hilarious and a very loyal friend.

Carrie Stern

Bridesmaid

I met Carrie in 5th grade when she moved in down the street from my family. We instantly became great friends. What I love about Carrie is that no matter how much time goes by, we can always pick up exactly where we left off. I am so proud of the person Carrie has become. She is an amazing teacher, role model and friend.

Jen Yeung

Bridesmaid

Jen was the first person I met at Drexel. We lived together for 3 years. Jen and I were so close and comfortable with each other from the very start. Freshman year we literally shared one singular spoon without ever washing it. There is no one else in this world I would ever do that with. It is disgusting! But we didn’t even think twice about it. Jen is a wonderful person and I know we will be friends forever.

Groomsmen

Mr. Christopher Carlson, C.P.A.

Best Man

Chris Carlson CPA is a blessed professional whose talents extend beyond the books. Mr. Carlson was recruited by Deloitte's Chicago office at the age of 8 after conducting an audit of his parent’s tax returns and finding several inconsistencies.

Chris is my best friend and been with me through good times and bad. Some of the things I admire most about Chris include his loyalty, dedication, and drive. I’m truly lucky to have Chris as a friend, and don’t know where I’d be without him.

Ryan Eagle

Groomsman

Ryan Eagle was recently featured in an article published by the Des Moines Register titled ‘Modern Dads: More than a Piece of Meat’. This article cleverly summarized “Ryan’s 3 P’s”: Painter, Philosopher, and Philanthropist.

Despite my wacky start with Ryan, I know he is going to be a life long friend. I admire Ryan’s insightfulness (most of the time), dedication to family, and the fact that we are always able to pick up where we left off regardless of time.

Tyler Haines

Groomsman

The best way to describe Tyler is a less attractive version of his older brother Trent.

Although Tyler is my little brother, I look up to him in many ways. I’m so proud of the man Tyler has become, and the life he is building for himself in the real world. I couldn’t be prouder to have Tyler as my brother.

Nate Haines

Groomsman

The best way to describe Nate is a less attractive version of his younger brother Trent.

Nate has done more for me than he likely knows. He possesses all the attributes that somebody would want in an older brother. I feel lucky to have such a great role model in my life.

Bryce Lednar

Groomsman

Over the past decade, male modeling has been defined by the following 3 syllables: BRYCE-LED-NAR. It is common knowledge that if you’re looking for Bryce, it’s best to base your search outside the United States.

I’m looking forward to being able to call Bryce my brother in the near future. That being said, I already consider Bryce a brother and always enjoy the time we spend together. I know that Bryce is going to do big things with his life.

Marcus Skala

Groomsman

I knew I was going to be friends with Marcus the first time I met him after watching him eat a full pizza, drinking a baker's dozen worth of beers, and then following this up with a cheeseburger and fries. This is somebody I needed in my life!

Finding a friend like Marcus in NYC has been an incredible blessing. He has made the big city feel a bit smaller, and I know we will remain friends forever. I respect him for many reasons including his approach to marriage, generosity, and general outlook on life.
