Welcome to our honeymoon registry

Our Story

We met under the most unlikely of circumstances and did not know we would both find the unexpected … True Love. There are so many distractions in life that prevent us from taking a moment to stop and realize how important it is to have love in our lives.

We feel so incredibly fortunate to have found one another when we did. We have shared so many crazy adventures together and are now taking the next step to spend our lives with one another exploring the world, each other, and all that life has to offer us.

Despite many challenges that we face on a daily basis nothing seems impossible as long as we stick together, maintain a sense of humor, and smile along the way.

Big Day Details

We have so many friends and family around the world that it was almost impossible to plan such an occasion without inviting several hundred of our closest friends and family! We will make our way around the globe in years to come to visit everyone.

We will be hosting our wedding ceremony and reception at a very funky Mediterranean called Restaurant Vidrio on Saturday, May 18, 2019 @ 2 p.m. We are so exited!

Honeymoon Destination Asheville, North Carolina

While we are certainly not looking for any wedding presents many of our friends and family asked us what we might like for a wedding present?

We are definitely not the traditional couple and we certainly have enough blenders ;-) With that said, we are planning a 10 day honeymoon in Asheville, North Carolina in June of 2019.

We want our friends and family to be part of an interactive experience so you know exactly what your appreciated gifts would be put towards.

As you can see below we are planning to engage in wine tasting, romantic dinners, exploring the artsy city of Asheville, staying in a very cool handicap accessible hotel with many pools for us to go swimming in, and exploring the gorgeous sights of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

If you are interested we put together a list of handicap accessible activities that will offer us a wide array of fun things to do while being able to relax, and enjoy one another at the same time.

We love you all and hope to see everyone in the years to come!
