It was a reunion of sorts for a flock of alum from William Hall High School in West Hartford, who gathered together one glorious mid-summer’s day in a town called Wrightsville, Pennsylvania.

Why would a high school class from Connecticut reunite in a place called Pennsylvania some 250 miles away?

Simple. Because the Hall High reunion wasnt so much a reunion as it was a wedding celebration. And the celebration took place in Pennsylvania because that’s where Ashleigh Albee and Garrett Logan Harbeck met, and where their relationship bloomed.

A treasure trove of friends from West Hartford trouped in to witness the Aug. 5 nuptials of Ashleigh, the daughter of Patti and Scott Albee, and a proud alum of Whiting Lane Elementary School, King Philip Middle School and Hall High School, and Logan Garrett Harbeck, the son of Garrett and Stacey Harbeck of Quakertown, PA.

The happy couple first set eyes on one another at Pennsylvania’s Millersville University where they were both education majors. Now, they both work in Pennsylvania: Ashleigh is a kindergarten teacher at Brownstown Elementary, while Logan teaches seventh grade English at Centerville Middle School. They currently reside in Red Lion, PA.

Along with good friends from West Hartford, the couple celebrated their union with friends and family from all across the country, as well as overseas. Ashleigh even invited her 18 kindergarten students to join her for the wedding ceremony.
