The cake was made in a hockey theme by "Ace of Cakes" from the Food Network, the card box was made of their old hockey sticks, and the bride threw a hockey sock instead of a garter. Christie's two bridesmaids, Nicole Guyette ('07) and Jill Sanctuary ('07), were the only other two female civil engineering majors in her class at UNH.
