Something borrowed, EVERYTHING BLUE!

By Sean Harvey ’10

Danielle Winn ’02 is getting married to Garrett Pearson on Oct. 10. It just so happens that everything and everyone she needs to make her big day possible is a Lynn graduate.

Winn hired Jonathan Nimerfroh ’03 as the photographer (www.jdnphotography.net), Lisette ’03 and Lauren ’03 Maiorisi as wedding coordinators (www.lisettelaurenevents.com), Danielle Hanoud ’01 for hair and makeup and Lindsay Mintz ’03 who owns a company that will have a photo booth at the reception (www.photoboothsocial.com).

When asked why she decided to hire Lynn alumni for her wedding, Winn said, “I gave Jonathan his tour of Lynn University when he first arrived on campus as a freshman and we have been friends ever since. A few years into dating Garrett, I remember telling Jonathan that if Garrett ever proposed he would be the photographer at my wedding. Well, last August Garrett proposed and I didn’t call my parents first, I notified Jonathan!”

As for the other alumni, “Danielle is a longtime friend of 12 years that has always had a knack for hair and makeup since our sorority days at Lynn. I had heard about Lauren and Lisette and knew I was going to track them down. I happened to see them at a bridal show days later and knew it was a sign! The photo booth happened by accident. I actually won the photo booth in a contest and when Lindsay called me to tell me I won; we started chatting and realized we both went to Lynn.”

Winn enjoys staying connected to Lynn in other ways as well. She currently serves as the financial advisor for the Sigma Sigma Sigma sorority at Lynn, attends alumni events, reconnects with old friends and classmates on the Lynn Alumni Facebook and LinkedIn pages and even has a Lynn license plate on her car.
