Aloha,

First off, we'd like to say that your presence at our wedding is the greatest gift we could ask for. The time, effort, and expense of traveling to be with us is something we deeply appreciate in our hearts, and we are so thrilled that we will be able to celebrate this happy occasion with you.
We are not the most traditional people and not the most traditional couple. We met in June of '09 and we started living together two months later. We decided to move out to Hawaii together in August of '09 and have been here for almost 3 years now. We have collected a lot of household items together already, including the essentials like gravy boats (Thanks Ben!). However, most of these items will have to be put in storage as we continue our life of travel and adventure together after the wedding. We have plans to continue traveling and living in exotic locations for the next few years before we pick our final destination to settle down.
With that in mind, we could not think of a more fitting gift than the gift of travel. We are passionate about seeing the world and exploring new places. It is so fun and exciting to think that you all can be a part of our first trip as husband and wife. We have decided to start our mission to see the world with Africa. We kind of like animals so we thought it would be nice to check some out on a safari! Thank you for turning our dreams into reality!

Mahalo,

Cole and Alex
