Hey friends and family!


If you're reading this right now it's because we love you and want you to celebrate our marriage with us. Some of you may be thinking, “Wait a minute. Aren't they already married?” Yes. Long story short, we expedited our engagement from 7 months to 2, making it impossible to invite everyone we'd originally planned for. Keep reading to get the low-down on the celebration we’re hosting and to learn more of the story that got us here.


Here’s what’s going down on June 24th:

We’re throwing a party, and we want you there! We’ve been referring to this event as our “June reception” but that’s a bit deceiving. Our brother Andrew has a cabin and ~40 acres about an hour from Cincinnati in Vevay, Indiana. This property simply must be used for play, so come ready. This literally means that we want you to show up in your “play clothes” (adults have play clothes too!). The day will include Wiffle Ball, a "Colonial Style Water Balloon War", corn hole and other great yard games, a scavenger hunt, and anything else we dream up between now and June 24. Activities will officially start at 2pm, and continue until a 7pm community-style dinner. After dinner, the party will continue with music and dancing. We want this day to be fun for you and your family, so please feel free to come and go when you need to. That being said, for those of you who are majorly pumped and want to milk the weekend for all it's worth (we encourage that), feel free to bring a tent with you and camp out on Saturday night!


Here’s how our story unfolded:


We had been working towards marriage our entire dating relationship. Along the way we developed really great friendships with a handful of folks in our circle. The closer we got to our friends and the more we saw the power of community, we decided that living in community would be a priority in our marriage. We didn’t just want to be close emotionally, we wanted to be close in physical proximity.

We got engaged in November of this past year with the intention of getting married in June after the school year ended. It seemed logical, and we were excited to plan a summer cabin wedding. Then, right before Christmas, we stumbled upon a listing for an apartment directly above two of our best friends, across the street from two others, three houses up from two more, and a stone’s throw up the block from Hannah’s brother and sister-in-law. Needless to say, we were intrigued. Only snag: the apartment became available January 1st. In our excitement, we texted our friends, who did what any good friends would do... told us to elope and move in. This is where the story gets good.

In the next week, we met with friends and mentors, walked through the apartment, and did a lot of praying. We asked the Lord for some sort of guidance in either direction: get married ASAP and live in this great place with all our friends, or stick to the plan and trust that He had something good waiting for us in June. Honestly, neither of us expected any clear direction, but within days we had our answer. Go for it.

Along with the fact that we got to get married super fast and we see our friends all the time, the two of us got a really tangible, undeniable reminder that the Lord is active in our lives and in our relationship. He speaks to us, He invites us into new territory, and He works in ways that defy any logic we think we’re confined to. We could go on and on about how God spoke to us through this process, and we’d love to share more with you if you’re interested in hearing about it.



We can't wait to celebrate with you on June 24th!
