Sharon Malaby and Jonas Lindqvist wed July 13, 2013 at Orca Point Lodge, with a reception following.
The bride is the daughter of Raymond and Glendia Malaby of Juneau. She graduated from Juneau-Douglas High School and attended Portland State University in Portland, Ore. She is employed with Komli Media in Singapore.
The groom is the son of Per and Ann-Kathrin Lindqvist of Umea, Sweden. He graduated from Dragonskolan High School in Umea and attended the Institute of Technology at Linköping University in Linköping, Sweden. He is employed with Vestas Wind Systems in Singapore.
The wedding was officiated by David Ottoson. The bride was attended by maid of honor Erica Simpson and bridesmaids Trisha Hays, Jenny Gruening, Katie Provost Thomas and Sophie Lindqvist. Ella Malaby was the flower girl. The groom was attended by best mand Linus Lund and groomsmen Peter Lindqvist, Nils Lindqvist, Jacob Logsdon and John Malaby. The bride’s dog Bailey was the ring bearer, though after consuming sea water and mooched morsels from guests, he was sick and “in the dog house” for the trip home — he has fully recovered.
The couple met living and working in Beijing, China, and traveled throughout Asia. They will relocate from their current home in Singapore, Singapore to Stockholm, Sweden in the fall, where Jonas will be employed with Sandvik Engineering and Sharon will pursue a graduate degree.
