Best Man Hank Lawson is Evan’s older brother, roommate and partner in HankMed, the Hamptons concierge medical practice they founded together. A gifted doctor, Hank brings the medical expertise to the practice, while Evan handles the business side of things. Despite their occasional differences, Evan has always looked up to his big brother and there’s no one he’d rather have by his side on his big day.
Friend of the Bride & Groom
A good friend of the bride, groom and best man, Divya Katdare is more than just HankMed’s talented Physician Assistant: she’s the glue that holds the business, and sometimes the Lawson brothers, together. Divya has become like the sister both Evan and Paige never had, and they’re thrilled that she’ll be with them as they celebrate their marriage.
EDDIE R. LAWSON
Father of the Groom
Eddie Roth Lawson, father of Hank and Evan Lawson, is an entrepreneur, blogger and author whose forthcoming self-help book L.I.F.E. was inspired by the time he recently spent in federal prison. Though absent for many years, Eddie has recently returned to the Lawson brothers’ lives and Evan and Paige are delighted that he will be traveling from Florida to be part of their special day.
ELLEN AND WILLIAM COLLINS
Parents of the Bride
William and Ellen Collins are the proud parents of the bride. With his wife’s unflagging support, William Collins, retired U.S. general and the former CEO of one of the country’s leading defense contractors, has recently been elected to the U.S. Senate. Paige and Evan are so grateful to Senator and Mrs. Collins for hosting the wedding, and honored that they’ll be able to take time out from their busy political schedule to attend.
Third Cousin Twice Removed of the Groom
Evan’s cousin Owen is one of Evan’s very, very few family members. (The Lawsons are a small but elite clan.) Owen manages a hardware store in Wisconsin, but is passionate about comic books-an interest he attributes to Evan-and dreams of one day opening a comic book shop. It means a lot to the bride and groom that Evan’s cousin Owen will be traveling all the way from Wisconsin to celebrate with them and help fill out the groom’s side of the aisle.
