Noriel Adrias Gonzales

Father of the Groom

Jim's Papa sacrificed a lot to provide for his family. He always has jokes up his sleeves, and knows to make everyone around him laugh. He took Jim to the swap meet as early as 5am to sell his collectibles and toys, which instilled the value of hard work and dedication in him early on. Papa would sing Jim lullabies when he couldn't sleep. He taught Jim that it's the small things in life that matters, and this has helped pave the way for Jim to be the man he is today. Papa can also make delicious champorado and palabok.

吉姆的爸爸为了家庭牺牲了很多。他总是有很多笑话可讲,能让周围的人都哈哈大笑。他早上5点钟就带着小吉姆去二手市场卖他的收藏品和玩具,很早就教会了吉姆勤劳和奉献的价值。他爸爸在吉姆睡不着的时候会给他唱摇篮曲。 他教导吉姆生活中平常的小事才是最珍贵的,让吉姆成为了他今天的样子。爸爸做的巧克力粥和烩米粉也特别好吃。

Gloria Martinez Gonzales

Mother of the Groom

Jim's Mama immigrated to the US in hope for a better life for her children. She took care of her four sons, at times when the father was deployed in the Navy. She is the hardest worker Jim knows, and is always making sure the family is well fed. Jim's favorite dishes are her kare kare and lumpia. She also makes sure that everyone who steps in our house leaves with their stomach full.

吉姆的妈妈移民到美国是希望能给她的孩子们更好的生活。她悉心照顾她四个儿子,即使当他们的父亲在海军服役时。她是吉姆认识的最努力工作的人,总是能保证全家人都有饭吃。吉姆最喜欢的菜是她做的花生酱炖牛尾和春卷。她总是让踏进家门的每一个人都吃得饱饱的。

Xi Chen 陈曦

Maid of Honor

"CC," as Priscilla endearingly calls her, has been her best friend since they first met in military camp in high school. CC has been Priscilla's longest confidant who always gives her nothing but comfort, support, and wisdom. They love making jokes out of everything, especially the most seemingly boring things. Despite their distance apart, CC always makes Priscilla laugh out loud from across the Pacific.

和子亲切地叫陈曦 CC, 有时候大CC. 从高中军训认识起她就是和子最好的朋友。CC一直是和子的最佳倾听者,给她安慰、支持、智慧。她们能把每件事都开成玩笑,特别是那些看似最让人无语的。尽管距离遥远,CC总能在大洋彼岸让和子开怀大笑。

Adela Zhang 阿黛拉

Bridesmaid

"Kai Tui," as Priscilla endearingly calls her, has been one of her best friends since they became roommates in college. They've been through thick and thin together during the Smith years, but always prevailed through laughter, poetic cynicism, and late-night Campus Center junk food and Little Smithies. Kai Tui is one of the most creative and fun people Priscilla knows, always showing everyone a good time.

和子亲切地叫阿黛拉“开腿”。从她们俩在大学成为室友起,开腿就是和子最好的朋友之一。她们一起经历了在史密斯的起起落落,但总是能一起通过大笑、如诗般的愤世嫉俗、和深夜的校园垃圾食物和巧克力泥石流,战胜恶魔。开腿是和子认识的最有创意最会玩的人之一,总是能带给大家无穷欢乐。

Chu Wu 吴楚

Bridesmaid

"Meine Lieblingschuchu," as Priscilla endearingly calls her, has been one of her favorite karaoke and dance buddies since they became housemates in college. Talented, thoughtful, and chock-full of hilarious sarcasm, Chu and her company are a great source of joy for Priscilla through the ups and downs of emerging adulthood.

和子亲切地叫吴楚“我最亲爱的楚楚”。从她们俩大学同住一栋宿舍起,楚楚就是和子最喜欢的K歌+跳舞小伙伴。才华横溢、深思、又充满能让人笑翻天的讽刺,楚楚和她的陪伴是和子在成年萌发期里阴晴圆缺的快乐源泉。

Yiwen Zhu 朱亦文

Bridesmaid

"Silby," as Priscilla endearingly calls her, is like a little sister she had at Smith. One class year below Priscilla, Silby is always the person with whom she can make fools out of themselves, whether it's taking dumb selfies or drunk eating pizza. She is also incredibly smart and gives Priscilla a fresh set of eyes for anything she needs. Priscilla always feels at home when she is around Silby.

和子亲切地叫朱亦文“Silby”。她像和子在史密斯的小妹妹一样。比和子小一级,她是能和和子一起装疯卖傻的小伙伴,能一起拍傻逼的自拍以及喝醉后狂吃披萨。但Silby也无比聪明,总能给和子的任何问题一些新鲜的视角。和子和Silby在一起的时候总是自由自在、舒服地做自己。

Jinjin Huang 黄金金

Bridesmaid

"Xiao Jin" or a butchered Cantonese version of that, as Priscilla endearingly calls her, has been the adventurous explorer who is up for anything with Priscilla. Hiking, running, eating, partying, and then wanting to leave already to go to McDonald's. Jinjin is spontaneous, spirited, and can laugh with Priscilla about every single thing on and out of the planet.

和子亲切地叫金金“小金”,或者它不堪入耳的粤语版。小金是那个愿意和和子一起尝试所有的冒险探索者。爬山、跑步、吃、狂欢、然后中途就想走去吃麦当劳。金金想一出是一出、精神饱满振奋,而且能和和子一起笑对一切。

Sui Ye 叶帅

Bridesmaid

The incident that bonded Sui and Priscilla was a painful one. At least for Sui. Long story short, Priscilla ran over Sui's left foot with her car. Since then, there was never a dull moment between them. They worked together in Miami, then lived together in San Francisco (with Jinjin, together they are "Homeless in SF"). Sui and Priscilla lift each other up and keep each other grounded, all while having the times of their lives regardless, singing Bohemian Rhapsody together out of the blue.

西北让和子和叶帅相遇,而著名的「小红车碾脚」事件则让她们不弃前嫌、相依为命。她们一起在迈阿密共事,又到了三藩和小金共处一窝,登遍了三藩所有的小山坡,成就了闻名天下的“落魄三藩”。和子和叶帅彼此鼓励、互为盟友、双双堕落、时不时来一首Bohemian Rhapsody,终日不知天高地厚。

Tiejin Zhang 张铁巾

Bridesmaid

“Little Iron," as Priscilla endearingly calls her, has always been a warm refreshing breeze in Priscilla's life. Bright (both in disposition and in intelligence), thoughtful, and knows exactly what to say at any given time, Tiejin never fails to make Priscilla feel loved and grateful that someone like Tiejin exists in her world.

和子亲切地叫铁巾“小铁”。她是和子生命中一缕清新暖人的微风。阳光聪明、体贴乖巧、又妙语连珠,铁巾总能让和子感受到爱以及感恩世界上居然有像她一样的人存在。

Joshua Gonzales

Best Man

"Bibi," as Jim would call him, is his youngest brother, but has grown to be the stand-up man. He's the first teammate Jim chooses in basketball. He is always cracking jokes and smiling, bringing much joy to Jim's and Priscilla's lives. Bibi inspires Jim to be fit and healthy through his active mindest and healthy lifestyle. Jim can always count on Bibi to look over the family when he is not there.

Gabriel Gonzales

Groomsman

"Nonoy," as Jim would call him, is his second youngest brother. Jim spent most of his childhood with Nonoy because they share hobbies like skateboarding, playing in the canyon, and playing Super Smash Brothers.

Noriel M. Gonzales

Groomsman

"Kuya Yel," as Jim would call him, is his oldest brother. He is the brother Jim has gotten into fights with the most, yet he has positively shaped Jim's life the most. He is full of joy and kindness, and is always joking around (at times too much), but Jim can turn to him in times of need. Kuya Yel is also a brilliant Chinese chef. Jim and Priscilla love his food, especially his biang biang noodles.

吉姆叫他的大哥“Kuya Yel”。他是吉姆最频繁的打架对手,但也是给吉姆生命中最多积极影响的人。他充满快乐和善良,也老是爱开玩笑(有时候太多玩笑),但吉姆总能在有难时依靠他。Kuya Yel也是一个很会做中国菜的大厨。吉姆和和子特别喜欢他做的菜,特别是油泼辣子biang biang面。

Jeimylo Martinez

Groomsman

"Jmy," as Jim would call him, is his cousin, but almost like a little brother who lives abroad. Jim thinks of Jmy as one of the kindest and most thoughtful people he knows. During their times together, Jmy and Jim are venturing into new terrorities and dreaming of the future. Jmy actually wrote a book dedicated to Jim, that Jim cherishes deeply. It's the best gift Jim has ever received.

吉姆叫他的表弟“Jmy”,但他对吉姆来说像一个住在国外的小弟一样。吉姆认为Jmy是他认识的最善良最体贴的人之一。他们在一起的时光,总是会探索新鲜事物以及梦想着未来。Jmy为吉姆写了一本书,吉姆一直珍藏着。这是吉姆收到过最好的礼物。

Nick Kauler

Groomsman

Nick has been Jim's best friend since third grade. Not many people have friendships this long. Nick is always there to get Jim out of trouble (as shown in this picture). Jim looks up to Nick and thinks of him as a role model. He had a lot of sleepovers at Nick's house (only four houses down), where Nick introduced Jim to his first R-rated movie, Euro Trip, while they ate homademade dishes by Nick's dad, one of the best cooks Jim knows.

尼克是吉姆从三年级开始起最好的朋友。没有多少人能有这么长的友谊。尼克总是能在吉姆惹麻烦的时候帮他脱身(如图所示)。吉姆很仰慕尼克,把他当做他的榜样。在尼克家过夜很多次(他家就在隔壁的隔壁的隔壁),也是在那里尼克给吉姆介绍了他第一步R级电影《欧洲任我行》,也吃了很多尼克爸爸做的家常菜。

Jason McGovern

Groomsman

"Jay," as Jim would call him, is his partner in crime. They are always getting into shenanigans together, from climibing hundred-foot trees, to cliff jumping. One of Jim's fondest memories of Jason was hanging out with him almost every day one summer, blasting music, surfing, swimming, and going out to eat. Just having a good time. Jim can always count on Jason to be there for him.

吉姆和他一起胡闹的好兄弟“Jay”。他们老是一起瞎玩儿,爬大树,还跳崖。吉姆和他最美好的回忆之一是在一起夏天几乎每天都一起玩,大声放音乐、冲浪、游泳、以及去外面吃东西。就是很好玩。吉姆总是能依靠杰森给他支持。

Martin Baltazar

Groomsman

Martin, in a way, is a brother from another mother to Jim. It's a love-hate relationship at times. Mostly love though. They share a lot of the same values, ambitions, and dreams. Regardless of where they are, they can have the time of their lives, even if it's at Panera. Three seconds left on the clock, Jim is passing it to Martin for the game winner, every time. Martin is very close with Jim's family as well.

马丁,在某种意义上来说,像吉姆的另一个哥哥。他们的关系总是爱恨交织,但大多是爱。他们很多价值观、野心、和梦想都相似。不管他们身在何处,总能玩得很开心,即使是在Panera快餐店。篮球赛还有三秒,吉姆每一次都会传球给马丁让他投出致胜的一球。马丁和吉姆的家人们关系也很近。
