Summer Wedding Planned
Wednesday, 27 April 2011

It was the NewYears' kiss of 2005 that brought them back together. Jennifer Salgado and Brandon Lesikar met ten years ago while working at Lascari's Restaurant in Whittier. The two dated for a little while but decided to remain friends. Four years later the two began to see each other a lot more. On New Year's Eve of 2005 they shared a midnight kiss and from then on they were inseparable.

The two are pleased to announce their engagement.

Jennifer is the daughter of Efren and Lori Salgado of La Habra. She graduated from La Habra High School in 2004 and is currently the Director of Catering for Lascari's Restaurant Group.


Brandon is the son of Fred Lesikar of La Habra and Cheryl Lesikar of Menifee, CA. He is also a La Habra High graduate with the class of 2000. Brandon is now the General Manager for Lascari's Restaurant in Brea.

Last April Brandon took Jennifer to Newport beach to celebrate her birthday. After sharing a night with their friends on a yacht, Brandon took Jennifer to the top of the yacht to look at the lights on the harbor. Surprised when she invited her friends to follow them to the top of the yacht and they declined, Jennifer knew something was odd. After expressing his feelings to her, Brandon got down on his knee and asked Jennifer to marry him. In utter shock Jennifer finally said yes.

Jennifer and Brandon have slightly altered the classic wedding traditions by having two Maids of Honor and two Best Men. The Maids of Honor will be Jennifer's best friend since high school, Jaclyn Odom, and her other best friend, Julia Mooradian. Brandon's best men will be his best friend from high school, Logan Conlan, and his brother, Darrell Lesikar.

The couple plan to wed on July 9 at the Fullerton Arboretum.
