Then she showered, changed and met a khaki-and-tie-clad Jeff—along with family, friends, radio station employees and the marathon crowd—for the wedding. A Latin-themed reception followed. And, before the evening ended, she studied for the three exams she had on Monday.
“I’m just really not into the whole big wedding thing,” she says. “I never imagined myself in a big ball gown. I just dried my hair and stuck bobby pins in it, and Mom made me a lowered crown. I wore little white J. Crew flip-flops. We had a really good time. All I needed, honestly, was Jeff. He is such a great guy.”
Oh, yeah. She passed all her exams that week and graduated with a Bachelor of Liberal Arts degree. Now she’s off and running in the real world.
