Vicki Sebastiani is pleased to announce the marriage of her only daughter, Elizabeth Ann Sebastiani, to Captain Peter G. Barrick of Sacramento. The couple were wed in a beautiful afternoon ceremony on Saturday, May 21 at Carmel Valley Ranch in California. Vicki’s youngest son, Christopher, escorted her down the aisle, both beaming.
Elizabeth’s “two fathers,” her older brothers Michael (right) and Jonathan (left) walked the beautiful bride down the aisle.
“California has had horrid spring weather,” Vicki said. “It rained the weekend before and after, but we had a miracle window of sunlight for the wedding.”
The bride, born and raised in Sonoma, California, is a graduate of Cal Poly and is currently pursuing entrance into veterinary school. After graduating from UC-Davis, the groom earned a Master’s degree in Political Science and then joined the Marines. “He told me ‘I wanted to do something for my country,'” Vicki said. “That’s when I knew he was a good fit [for my daughter] and that we’d welcome him to our family.”
Elizabeth and Peter actually met on the online dating site e-Harmony. According to Vicki, they are a great match because they’re both very level-headed and future-focused. But they do like to have fun together. After matching through e-Harmony, the couple talked for almost a year before meeting in person.
The newlyweds will begin their life together in Cherry Point, North Carolina. Peter, who has already deployed to Afghanistan once, will be deployed again at the end of December. He is an aviator who flies a Prowler aircraft.
Of her new son-in-law, Vicki says “What I like best about him is his stability, security and how he absolutely adores my daughter. He’s a solid rock. He’s the kind of man every mother hopes her daughter will marry.”
“I have only three words to describe the occasion,” Vicki said. “Magnificent, momentous and memorable.”
Congratulations, Vicki, on gaining a wonderful son-in-law and congratulations to the Happy Couple.
