Guests
The wedding will be small and intimate with limited space. We love our large families, but we were not able to invite everyone, and unfortunately there will be no children.

Unplugged Ceremony
We invite you to be fully present with us during our ceremony. We want to see your lovely smiling faces, and not your devices. We kindly ask that you turn off and put away phones and cameras until after the first dance. We hired an amazing photographer and promise to share all the beautiful photos he takes!

Reception
The reception will have a smoothie bar “cocktail hour”, a full family style dinner, and of course wedding cake! There will be a DJ, dancing and good times! The reception will take place at the same venue as the ceremony and will end at 10:30pm.

RSVP
Please let us know if you will be able to make it to the wedding by calling us, texting us, or emailing DarleneAndFat@gmail.com. We will need a final attendance count by September 30, 2016. The sooner you can let us know, the better!

Gift Registry

We have registered for gifts with zola.com, which directs you to various places online and retails stores.

The day after the wedding we are leaving for a six month adventure through Asia and Europe. We kindly ask that you send gifts early as we will be renting out our condo while we are abroad and will not be able to receive them.
