Registry Information
We want all our guests to know that their presence at our wedding is truly the greatest gift. That being said, we do have a registry, and we don't want you to have to ask around for the information.
We're excited to be going a bit non-traditional by using an online travel registry for our honeymoon. Just click on this link to see our plans and how you can help us make it happen!

A Note for Those with Children
We ask that all children aged 0-6 remain at the Jefferson Street Inn Madison Room during the ceremony, where childcare will be provided free of charge, beginning at 1:30 PM. Children of all ages are welcome to attend all or part of the reception with their parents. However, complimentary childcare will run continuously through the afternoon until 8:00 PM. The Madison Room will feature movies and activities overseen by two childcare providers. Thank you for respecting our ceremony preferences!

There will be time for a few shuttle runs beginning at 1:45, but please be in the lobby no later than 2:00 if you plan to take the shuttle. After the ceremony, the shuttle will return guests to the hotel for an early evening cocktail hour that will be followed by dinner and dancing.
