Welcome, friends and family! We wanted to share a bit of information with you about us, the wedding, and what to expect. So, let's get started... Just a brief introduction about us, in case you know one of us more than the other.

Scott was born on April 8, 1982 to Tim and Lori McDermott. He was raised near the New Melleray Abby outside of Peosta, IA (Southwest of Dubuque, IA). Scott graduated High School in 2000 from Cascade, IA. He enjoys music and is a very talented musician. He plays any instrument he can. He currently teaches private Guitar and Ukulele lessons in Denver, CO. He also works with cognitively and physically challenged individuals with Imagine! Colorado in Boulder, CO.

Joni was born on September 19, 1982 to Norm and Donna Zimmerman. She was raised near Monticello, IA (Northeast of Cedar Rapids, IA). Joni graduated High School in 2001 from Monticello, IA. She enjoys running, hiking, and yoga. In her spare time, she is painting acrylic canvas art and crocheting. She is a Pharmacist at Pharmaca Integrative Pharmacy in Boulder, CO.

Scott and Joni have been together since 2008 when they met in Iowa City, IA. However, they did know each other from Cross Country meets in High School as they were from competing towns. Through the years after high school, Scott and Joni have had many of the same friends and have kept in touch. As luck would have it, Scott had to bike to work through the apartment complex that Joni was living at while going to college. They talked, found out they were neighbors, and never left each other's side since.

Scott and Joni moved to Denver in 2009. They have two cats, Kitty and Gary. They enjoy camping, kayaking, going to see live music, and hanging out with their friends and family. Scott proposed to Joni in April 2013 at Red Rocks Amphitheater and Park while on a nature hike with their dog Tucker. A beautiful friendship turned into a beautiful proposal, and now a beautiful wedding day is in the making!
