Grove, Summers wed
Mary Jayne Oakleigh Grove and Kelly Marie Summers wed Jan. 19, 2013 at the King County Court House in Seattle, Wash., taking advantage of the state’s recently passed marriage equality law.
The wedding was officiated by Judge Chow and a reception followed at Purple Café and Wine Bar in Seattle. Friends of the couple Marie and Dwayne Toland of Juneau, Lisa Tibetts of Anchorage, and Mark Baumgardner of Seattle acted as witnesses. The couple will also hold a commitment ceremony in the United Kingdom in September of 2013, followed by a January 2014 Caribbean cruise honeymoon.
Grove is employed with Alaska USA Federal Credit Union as a senior loan officer. Summers is employed with Quest Diagnostics as a phlebotomist.
The SummersGroves make their home in Anchorage, though they have ties to Juneau as well.
