Langley residents Theresa Desrosiers and Bobbie Weitzel are pleased to announce the marriage of their son, Ryan Desrosiers, to Laura Whalley. The couple was married in The Hanger at Milsoms, Kesgrave Hall, Ipswich, United Kingdom, on Nov. 24, 2017. Whalley is the daughter of Lynn Day of Ipswich. Desrosiers is a graduate of Bayview High School and Western Washington University with a bachelor’s degree in archaeology and anthropology. Whalley is a graduate of the University of York in York, UK with a bachelor’s degree in archaeology.

The couple each recently completed their master of science degrees in zooarchaeology and early prehistory, and received their degrees from the University of York earlier this month.

They have taken Whalley’s grandmothers’ maiden name to honor her, hyphenating their married name to Desrosiers-Whalley and will continue to live in England where they work in commercial archaeology.
