Bergin and Lesiak
Lauren Margaret Bergin and Thomas Charles Lesiak were married Oct. 26, 2017, at Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Chuck O’Connor officiated the 2 p.m. ceremony.
Parents of the couple are Linda and Tom Bergin, and Charles and the late Myra Lesiak.
Elizabeth Bergin was maid of honor. Bridesmaid was Ashley Collins.
Matt Lesiak was best man. Groomsmen were Ben Lesiak and Connor Bergin.
The reception was at the Old Mattress Factory in Omaha.
The bride is a 2008 graduate of Omaha Northwest High School and a 2012 graduate of the University of Nebraska Medical Center.
The groom is a 2006 graduate of Fremont High School, a 2010 graduate of Hastings College and a 2015 graduate of The Hartt School of Music in West Hartford, Connecticut.
Tom and Lauren were married on the wedding anniversary of Charles and Myra Lesiak. Myra was a beloved teacher, devoted wife, and loving mother; she passed away in 1995.
The bride and groom are grateful to share an anniversary with such a faithful and loving couple. The groom would also like his new wife to know that he sees many of his mother’s traits in her: a fondness for ice tea, an irreverent sense of humor, an ability to put others at ease, and fearlessness in the face of life’s inevitable challenges.
