celebrations Laura Young and David Burney Laura Young and David Burney knew it was a perfect match when they found someone who shared their passion for all things earthy. The self-proclaimed "rock nerds," who met as co-workers at Madison's Burnie's Rock Shop, incorporated their love of nature into their Sept. 17 wedding at the Orpheum Theatre using do-it-yourself touches such as favors made from tumbled stones and miniature tree centerpieces for guests to take home. Laura is the daughter of Teresa and Brian Young. David is the son of Sharyn and Charles Burney. The pair now resides in Corvallis, Ore.

After four years of traversing I-94, Justin surprised Jaime by proposing to close the gap for good. The two wed at the Madison Concourse Hotel on July 30. Jaime is the daughter of Sue and John Stadler. Justin is the son of Lottie and Joel Frank. The couple lives in Madison.

After dinner on a cruise in Cancun, Mexico, the couple settled in to watch a picture-perfect sunset when he popped the question. The pair returned to shore engaged and headed to the altar on Oct. 22 at the Madison Masonic Center. Brittany is the daughter of Natasha Dieter and Timothy Barry. Nicholas is the son of Kimberly and Neal Kalscheur. The couple resides in Fitchburg.
