Hello Friends,

First, 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 hope you find this registry as a way to help us make our desired Italian honeymoon come true! While David and I have taken exciting trips separately, we are very much looking forward to our first real adventure as husband and wife. It is because of the lifetime of memories we will gain from this trip, and a chance for me to experience his mother's home, the walled city of Lucca, that we finally settled on a travel honeymoon registry. We will do our best to document our experience via photo and share with you some of the beauty we encounter in Italy.

Thanks again and we can't wait to see you at the wedding (or earlier). Our hope is a memorable gathering of friends & family to bear witness in what God has done in bringing our lives together. Join us as we celebrate with great food and wine, hear (and dance) with some awesome SF jazz singers and musicians, all in the backdrop of the vineyards of lovely Sonoma County.

Love,
Mary & David

We're going to Tuscany (Lucca, etc.), Almalfi Coast, Rome!

Well, our itinerary is a work in progress yet we know that we will arrive and start in the Tuscan region (arriving in Florence) and heading from there specifically to Lucca, Pisa, maybe Siena or wherever we decide to go those first few days. Lucca, the birthplace and home of David's mother and his maternal side of the family, will have cousins and family members still in the city and the region there to greet us.

Then we will head down to the beautiful Amalfi Coast and spend several days there taking up the sights and beauty of Capri.

Our last stop will be Rome where we will finish up our trip indulging in all that great City gives to the world. We'll head back to San Francisco from Rome.

We know this does not sound like an exciting honeymoon gift, yet it's a major part of traveling. We will leverage all of the airline points we have as well. Much preferred over appliances, towels, or all those other household items folks may give.
