Bride & Groom
The couple of the moment have their say . . .
The Bride: Laura Anne Ackley
Laura is one of a rare breed: a native Californian. She was
born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area and attended
high school in Sacramento. A graduate of UC Berkeley (twice!)
and Harvard's Graduate School of Design, Laura has travelled
to South and Central America and Europe. However, it took
a random trip to a San Franciso Japanese restaurant to meet
her true love. Laura works as a 3D computer graphics instuctor
and is hoping to have her Master's thesis on the Panama-Pacific
International Exposition of 1915 published. She enjoys going
on archeological digs, driving around in her '66 red convertible
Ford Mustang, dancing about to New Wave music and lavishing
adoration upon her cat, Murphy.
She has the nasty habit of eating only the heads of chocolate
bunnies, leaving a trail of decapitated carcasses in her wake.
The bodies contain all the calories, you see.
The Groom: Sander Cornelis Temme
Sander grew up in Amsterdam, the Netherlands where he, consecutively,
wanted to become a fireman, a Mighty Pirate and a train operator
when he grew up. It took until senior high school for the
other kids to beat some sense into him. Sander attended the
Physics School at the University of Amsterdam where he graduated
as a Master of Science. After completing his degree he repaired
to Australia for a year and developed a fondness for wide
open spaces, Victoria Bitter
and six foot high, glassy waves with a land breeze. Upon his
return, Sander delved straight into the budding Internet economy
and stayed submerged until he was lured to California by the
woman of his dreams. He now works in the software industry
in San Francisco.
