The Couples of CBU - A Photographic Essay

By Lauren Jeu

Adam Buczyna & Reggie Raney

Adam: “She's the whole package: Gorgeous, Goofy, and Grounded. The love of my life, and so much more.”

Reggie: “After being together for over two years, we have learned to balance our strengths and weaknesses. I cannot wait to call him my husband in October.”


Will Walsh & Brianna Berg

Will: “4 Valentine’s Days down, a lifetime worth to go! She is seriously the best thing that has ever happened to me.”

Brianna: “By my side through everything, from my mother’s loss to my brother’s marriage. He’s my everything… I can’t imagine life without him.”


Megan Huynh & Noah Vongphit

Megan: "We're really supportive of each other and want each other to achieve our goals. What I really love about him is how he always tries to see me even if it's for 5 minutes. He's always been there for me no matter what."

Noah: “Megan brings light to my gloomy days, picks me up when I’m feeling down, and supports me during tough times. Together we succeed.”


Nick Traylor & Logan Livingston

Nick: “Logan is an angel at heart. She is a big part in my life and I'm so glad to be able to call her mine and to have been able to do so for over 6 years now.”

Logan: “There is a saying that a woman is a reflection of her man, and if that’s true, I do not do Nick justice in reflecting how good of a man he is.”


Taylor Flake & David Lawson

Taylor: “David always tells me that I do such great things, but what he doesn’t know is that I can’t do these great things without him.”

David: “We used to be such opposites, but she’s elevated her goofy level for me and I’ve elevated my serious level for her. She’s the good kind of crazy.”


Mirjana Walther & Anthony Maranise

Mirjana: "There was a time in my life when I felt so lost and I asked God to send me an angel. I see the Lord through Anthony every day, he's selfless, kind, and more giving than I could ever deserve. Through God we found each other."

Anthony: “God gave me Missy. When I think of her, I thank God for her right away. In the end, if all I have is her and Jesus, then, at last, I have real love and that’s more than enough.”


Jessica Allen & Felipe Olvera

Jessica: “When just about anything happens, he’s the one I want to share it with. He’s somebody who can know what I need even when I don’t know myself. He’s so good.”

Felipe: “Her face tells how she feels. She can say everything without saying anything at all. And she’s got the cutest little nose… I love her.”

The Galleon is curated and managed by Christian Brothers University, a Memphis-based university founded in the Lasallian tradition (a sect within the Catholic faith). Part of our founding mission is to uphold respect for all persons-regardless of political, religious, or social beliefs. As an institution, we take no stand on political matters; to do so would undermine our commitment to intellectual inquiry and thoughtful response to events taking place in our World by members of the CBU community.
