Dearest ones, We’re writing this from Canaves Oia Suites in Santorini, Greece, in a state of bliss. Last night we dined on a private balcony under the light of a strawberry moon—the rare confluence of a full moon and the Summer solstice. It was the perfect end to our wedding day. Don’t worry, you didn’t miss the memo. A wedding that was authentic to our truest essences—adventure and simplicity, respectively—precluded invitations. At noon, we stood on the same balcony for our wedding ceremony, decorated beautifully by our wedding planner and captured by our exceptional photographer. We recited vows, exchanged rings, and became husband and wife; the exquisite caldera view sweeping underneath and all around us. It was our deepest desires realized, the ultimate marriage of exploration and excitement and essentialism, and so much more joy than we imagined it could be. We hope you won’t feel so snubbed as to prevent your wishing us well (we half expect some of you to thank us!). Sending positive thoughts our way and messages of congratulations are fully welcomed. As for gifts—we hardly expect those given that we provided no dance floor or wedding cake in return. If, however, you feel compelled to contribute to our life as a married couple, well, we certainly won’t try that hard to stop you. And though for any other couple it might be terribly tacky, for us is it just fitting to humbly request gifts of the currency variety, lest one of us speedily cart off extraneous items to charity. We are sending love to each one of you, and are so overjoyed to share our thrilling news!
