Aidan Tait shares: “I was sad to miss Anniversary Weekend this year, but it was for the best reason. My husband, Felipe, and I welcomed our son, Raphael, in late February 2019. So far, he exudes the laid-back spirit of his surfer daddy, something for which Felipe and I are grateful. We are still in the Bay Area, where I’ll finish my residency at Stanford in 2020. We’re both ready for the relative calm of post-residency life, likely still in California, though unsure where as of yet. If anyone knows of any good beach towns in need of an anesthesiologist, let me know.”

John Hamilton shares this news: “On March 1, 10 years after making our relationship official over AOL instant messenger (Was there any other way?), Yasmin Vera and I tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in Brooklyn, N.Y. In true-to-form fashion, Yasmin planned, designed, and coordinated every intricate detail, while I focused my efforts on the equally arduous task of building the perfect music selection for the evening. We were lucky enough to share the evening with our closest family and friends, but also to have our formmate Alice Pelletier as Yasmin’s maid of honor and Casheif Belvin ’10 as our officiant. Since the wedding, we’ve spent post-wedding life in Brooklyn, me working at an ad agency in the city and Yas running her graphic design/web development firm with the help of our chinchilla, Kiku.”
