The very best present we can receive is your presence at our post-wedding celebration and your love and support on this adventure together. We recognize that especially for those of you coming from far away, simply attending our wedding will already entail spending money on travel and hotel accommodations. Homemade, handmade, and second hand gifts are welcomed and appreciated. Many of you are contributing your time and energy to this event, and for the gift of your participation we thank you. For the more traditional gift givers among you: We are fortunate enough to have all of the customary items needed to start a home. If you wish to contribute in some way, we are asking for donations to our home repair fund or Lowe's and Home Depot gift cards to renovate and update our home.
