Courtney Purvis
Courtney and Courtney, or Baber and Purvis as they were often called, met at Grimsley and were practically joined at the hip through high school. They often consider themselves lucky for surviving those shenanigan-filled years. Courtney lives in Clemmons, North Carolina where she does promotional work.

Our Parents
Bob Baber & Victoria Eves-Baber
Bride's Parents
Robert was born in Valley Forge, PA, but grew up as an “army brat” moving 13 times and attending 4 high schools in 3 countries. Victoria also spent much of her childhood overseas where she attended boarding school in Switzerland and lived in Germany the same years Bob did! She raised 2 sons in Massachusetts before moving down to North Carolina. Bob and Victoria recently celebrated their 13 year anniversary! They enjoy the best of both worlds in North Carolina, spending most of the time at their lake front home in Morganton while also enjoying the beautiful fall and winter in the mountains of Boone. Robert is a business consultant, but his true passion is brewing beer! It all began with a Christmas gift 2 years ago from his children and he has since brewed and bottled over 22 beers, ranging from a simple Citrus Wheat to his more complex Double Chocolate Starbucks Coffee Stout. Victoria is a Regional Credit Manager and Administration Executive at Bank of America. When not working she is likely whipping up her famous salad and a delicious meal while enjoying a glass of Chardonnay!
Alan & Kathy Jensen
Groom's Parents
Alan was born in Redwood Falls, MN and grew up in Brainerd learning to hunt and fish from his father. He joined the Air Force after high school where he served four years in the Vietnam War. Alan retired from a family road construction business after 33 dedicated years. Kathy was born and raised in Brainerd and spent four years abroad in Germany. For 17 years, she was an Insurance Coordinator at the Brainerd Medical Center. After which Kathy and her sister, Nancy, finally fulfilled their dreams of owning a home décor gift shop. Not only did they enjoy helping others furnish their homes, but they also enjoyed the perk of redecorating their own homes… many, many times during those 16 years. :) Alan and Kathy met through friends and were married 4 months later! Their retirement has allowed them ample time to visit their grandchildren in Wisconsin and also escape the cold winters by heading south to the sunny shores of Florida! Kathy enjoys the beach while Alan collects sea shells and their sweet yellow lab, Maggie, doesn’t mind the warmer temperatures either. Alan and Kathy will be celebrating their 40 year anniversary shortly after the marriage of their son!
Vickie Baber
Bride's Mother
Vickie was born in South Carolina and lived near the coast for nearly half of her life! She is a true beach girl and it remains one of her favorite places to this day. She was a stay at home mom where she made sure her 3 kids were on top of their school work and especially enjoyed helping with their art projects. Anyone who knows Vickie knows of her craftiness! She could regularly be found in the hallway of the kid’s school, volunteering to make bulletin boards and art displays. She was known fondly by teachers and students alike. She went on to have a home organization and decorating business. These days she enjoys yoga, gardening and continues to decorate Christmas trees more beautiful than anyone I know!
