If you have flights booked, most airlines at this point are being flexible and will refund or credit if canceled due to COVID.
If you have a ticket please request a refund, or it will be rolled to the future date.

Friends and Coworkers
Please use the ticketing system! Tickets sales will end May 3, 2021. There is will absolutely no tickets at the door. If you have any food allergies or religious based food restrictions please let us know ASAP.
Although it may seem odd, instead of capping the wedding at a specific smaller size and only including only our family and a few friends, we worked hard to find a way to enable all of our friends and coworkers who wanted to attend to be able to come and celebrate with us.
The best way for us to make that happen was to run the wedding more like a conference than a traditional wedding, which honestly suits us pretty well.
We absolutely understand if this makes it such that some of you do not wish to, or can not attend. We fully understand this. We hope you understand why we chose to do our celebration in this way and this place.
