A Special Request for our Events

Over the past year and a half, our lives have all changed dramatically due to the pandemic.

As the vaccine is now readily available and the Delta variant is on the rise, we kindly request that our guests who choose to attend in-person be fully vaccinated before our November wedding.

It is with particular thought and concern for our older, younger, and more vulnerable loved ones, including those who cannot be vaccinated due to medical reasons, that we ask you to consider this request in making your decision regarding attendance. We hope you understand our loving intention is for all of our guests to be safe, happy and to be able to celebrate with confidence as we take this much-anticipated step toward our future lives together.

Safety is paramount, and we thank you for holding us in your hearts as we make this request. Information regarding the RSVP process will be included in the formal invitations to come in the following weeks. Again, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your love and understanding.

Indoors vs. Outdoors

  • Friday's ceremony will be held indoors at St. James Cathedral. The church holds approximately 1,200 people; however, we do not expect anywhere close to that amount, hah! That being said, we anticipate there will be plenty of space for people to socially distance from one another.
  • Saturday's ceremony and reception at Mission Inn will all take place outdoors. We plan to have a large tent for dinner and dancing with plenty of fresh air flow! Although the bar and food line will be in a Pavilion area, time spent inside of it can be limited to your comfort level.

How many people will be there?

At this point, we don not have an exact number;
however, we are expecting around 150 to 200 people to be in attendance on Saturday.

We know that is a large crowd, so we completely understand if you are uncomfortable being around that many people. Please make your decision on what you feel is best for your health and safety.
