    Check back often as we will update as we have more info. We can’t wait to see all of you!

    Day of Event Details

    The festivities will begin at 5pm. To enter the North Shore Center, go to the back entrance and use the STAGE DOOR.

    The evening will include cocktails and appetizers, ceremony, dinner and dancing. Have those dancing shoes ready as Joe will be out there all night and he doesn’t wanna be dancing alone (but her will!)

    we are so looking forward to celebrating this special day with our nearest and dearest family and friends. WE CAN’T WAIT!

    Gift Suggestions

    People have asked us if we have a registry. Since we moved in together and combined 2 homes, we haven’t really been in need of anything.

    The one thing we are doing now is starting to plan to update our bedroom (currently a mishmash of our two bedroom sets, awkwardly combined.) We are considering a few different sets from Walter E Smithe. A gift card would help us get “OUR” bedroom set. Link to gift cards here.

    Keep in mind your presence is more important to us than gifts so please do not feel obligated.
