Ashley and Frederick Garrin

Ashley and Frederick Garrin renewed their vows with friends and family (including children Maizy, 10; Monroe, 7; and Moses, 5) at the Conservatory downtown, then enjoyed an after party at the AC Hotel. “It was exciting to marry my best friend all over again, surrounded by the people we love, especially our children,” says Ashley, assistant director of Iowa State University’s McNair Program.
