Let us tell you a story...

A story of a boy and a girl who said, "Sure, dating apps are weird, but how are you supposed to meet somebody in L.A. when you're 40, anyway?" Of a pair that thought it made complete sense to go on a first date even though a) the girl was on a juice cleanse; and b) it was the night of the boy's birthday. (She had chamomile tea; he had a pork chop.) The story of a couple that discovered that while they had wildly different life experiences, they shared the same, sentimental views on love, hope, and happiness.

A couple that found out the whole fairytale happy ending thing really can happen.

Okay, you caught us: we're talking about ourselves. You'll have to cut us a little slack, because we're overjoyed and grateful to have all of you in our lives, and can't wait to share our wedding day with you. Each and every one of you has touched us in some fundamental way, and without your love and support we wouldn't be the people we are today — and we certainly wouldn't have found one another.

Consider this site your one-stop shop for what we hope will be a fun and celebratory weekend near Santa Barbara, California. There will be a welcome party on Friday, June 17th, for those of you that are making a trip of it, followed by the main event on Saturday — and of course all the merriment and silliness that one would expect. But we'll stop talking now, and give you a chance to look around. Just one last thing...

Thank you for being in our lives. We love you.

Ceremony + Reception

Saturday, June 18th
4:00 PM - 10:00 PM

 

Apple Creek Ranch is a gorgeous secluded farmhouse with an overview of greenery, fields, and things that just generally make you stop and say, "Oooh, that's pretty."

Buses will being shuttling guests from their hotels to the venue approximately one hour in advance. Because let's face it: it's always more fun when you don't have to worry about driving home.

Both the ceremony and reception will be outdoors, so please plan accordingly. Heat lamps will be available, but it does get chilly at night!

 

Vibe: Semi-formal.

The Afterparty

After the big event buses will pick us all up from Apple Creek Ranch, replete in our splendid formalwear, and take us to... the local brewpub. Because that's how we roll.

 

Vibe: Your call.
(We'll be the ones dressed as the married couple.)
