The Happy Couple

Emilio Rodríguez

Emilio is a small business owner and entrepreneur extraordinaire! He is from Santiago, Dominican Republic but has lived in the DC area since 2009. His interests include playing basketball, creating business plans, and, of course, their puppy-dog Roscoe.

Jessica Pillars

Jessica is a litigation attorney at a DC law firm. She is from Kalamazoo, Michigan but has lived in the DC area since 2011. Her interests include CrossFit, their puppy-dog Roscoe, and pizza!

About us


Emilio and Jessica met in June 2012 and have been inseparable ever since. Emilio even braved one of DC’s worst summer storms in years to pick Jessica up for their first date. After Emilio drove an hour, with a slight detour to park under a highway overpass to wait out the high winds, he pulled on to Jessica’s street only to realize that police cars and caution tape barricaded it and there was a tree on fire in front of her house!

From there, Emilio and Jessica’s relationship has only gotten more “exciting” from Jessica taking the bar exam (Emilio survived the study period, which says a lot) and getting her dream job to Emilio selling his business and embarking on a new career journey. These two can’t wait to see what else is in store for them as they take on the world together!

Our Wedding Location

Bridemaids

Massiel Fernández de Rodríguez
Bridesmaid

Massiel is also my soon-to-be sister! Massy is married to Alfredo, Emilio’s brother and best man, and is the mother of two of the adorable boys that will be participating in our ceremony.

Susana Rodríguez
Bridesmaid

Susana is my soon-to-be sister! We have gotten super close over the past few years since she moved to the DC area. Susana even participated in the Proposal (see proposal video link below in the Wedding Timeline)!

Heather Skinner
Maid of Honor

Heather is the baby sister and one of my closest friends. We are so much alike (and yet totally different) it’s crazy! Although she’s busy wrapping up a biochemistry molecular biology degree, I know I can count on Heather to keep me grounded throughout the planning process.

Danielle Pillars
Maid of Honor

Danielle is the oldest of my younger sisters. We are less than 2 years apart in age, which means we have literally gone through everything together! I can’t imagine taking on the immense task of wedding planning without her by my side.

Groomsmen

Anthony Carvajal
Groomsman

When we were in school as little kids, finding out that we were neighbors was one of the most exciting things. Since that moment we only grew closer and spending a year in Minnesota as exchange students is one of our best memories.

Rafael Romero
Groomsman

My first memory of my very first friend is with Rafa or “buche” as my grandma, Güía, would call him. We’ve been best friends since we were 3 years old and we grew up together like family. Rafa is a true friend that I can trust with my life.

Manuel Antuña
Groomsman

Boy scouts gave me many of my best qualities as a person, but the best gift I got from it was my friend Antuñita. Growing up we had had so many adventures together and nobody understands another person like we understand each other.

Alfredo Rodríguez
Best Man

Alfredo is almost like a brother to me. Oh wait, he IS my brother! And I couldn’t be happier for the gift of an older brother like him. His wedding title couldn’t be closer to the truth – he really is MY BEST MAN.

Bridal BFFs

April Wiborn
Bridal BFF

April and I have been friends since our high school basketball days. From high school dances and basketball games to graduation, Pril and I have shared some landmark moments and I’m very excited to have her with me as I celebrate the biggest moment of my life so far!

Shannon Wood
Bridal BFF

Shannon and I were also roommates for two years… two of the best, most fun years ever! I’m super excited to have Shannon with me as I start this new journey.

Lindsey Wood
Bridal BFF

Lindsey and I have known each other since our track days of high school but her, Shannon, and I became super close as college roomies. I couldn’t be happier that Lindz will be there to help me usher in this new chapter of my life!

Melissa Redhead
Bridal BFF

Without Melissa I probably would not have made it through law school… at least not with my sanity! I couldn’t have asked for a better study partner and I’m so happy to have her celebrating every second of my Big Day with me!

Alisa Randol
Bridal BFF

Alisa and I have been BFFs since middle school so it’s fair to say that we’ve been through it all together! She is more like a sister at this point and I couldn’t imagine starting this new chapter of my life without her there with me.

Rachel Lockwood
Bridal BFF

Rachel is my best friend and the most fabulous travel partner a girl could ask for. Our friendship began in somewhat of a strange fashion with an impromptu trip together to Vegas. Since then, Ray Ray has been there for me over the years and is always the first person to visit me when I move to a new city. My Big Day wouldn’t be the same without her there and I’m so thankful to have such an amazing friend.
