You have questions…
…we have answers.

When is my RSVP due?
We kindly ask that you RSVP by June 1st.

When should I arrive?
The ceremony will begin promptly at 6pm.

Why wasn’t I asked if I wanted a Chicken/Beef/Fish/Vegetarian meal?  i.e. What’s for dinner?
We’re doing a stations style meal.  There will be a wide range of choices and there will be something for everyone! You will have to try very hard to leave hungry!

Will it be hot? Why are you getting married in DC in the middle of the summer?
We’re getting married in the summer because it makes the most sense with Casey’s job. Summers are, after all, a slow time in schools. As for the weather, it will likely be hot.  We’re embracing it! The average high in Washington DC on July 18th is 89 degrees. That being said, it can also be a pleasant 75. We’re hoping for a beautiful 80 degrees with low humidity. Thankfully it usually doesn’t rain too much in July in DC.  All of this being said, if it is raining, or is too hot, the ceremony will be moved downstairs to the ballroom.

What kind of ceremony will it be?  I heard it will be standing room only and I need a seat!
Our non-denominational ceremony will be officiated by our good friend Jessica Pettrone.  The roof at the ballroom is a non-traditional space for a ceremony, but they are happy to accommodate our desire to get married under a blue sky.  There will be more of you than there will be seats, but we have a good idea of who will need seating.  Feel free to email us if you won’t be able to stand for the 20 minute ceremony.

Where are you registered?
If you prefer to get us a gift, we are registered at Macy’s and Crate and Barrel.  However, in lieu of a gift, we would be extremely honored if you chose to make a monetary donation in our names to one of our favorite charities:

Hayo-Went-Ha Camps – (hayowentha.org) Casey and her sisters grew up spending time in Northern Michigan at these amazing camps! Her years at camp played a major role in her life and the friendships she formed there are some of her most treasured! Donations to camp help make wilderness adventure camping possible for young people who might not otherwise have the opportunity!

Save the Golden Lion Tamarin – (savetheliontamarin.org) There are about 2000 of these adorable little monkeys left in the wild.  Jeff spent years volunteering at the zoo in close proximity to them.  There will be a number of current and former zoo employees and volunteers at the wedding.  If you come across them, ask them about the GLTs, they’ll be happy to talk about them.

Special Olympics of Northern Virginia – (specialolympicsva.org)  In honor of our dear friend Sarah Pettrone, who gave so much of her time and energy to such a terrific cause.

Surfrider Foundation – (surfrider.org) Surfrider foundation is a non-profit environmental organization that works to protect and preserve what is most important to Jeff, the world’s oceans, waves, and beaches.
