Friends and Family,

We can't wait to have you join us on our wedding day! Many of you will travel from out of town to witness our public commitment to a life together and we are honored to have you present. Thank you so much for the gift of your presence, love, and support.

Kelsey and I have always valued experiences and travel together. Our first month of dating was spent in the baltic countries of Europe with our high school choir. 5 years later, we have been blessed with many experiences and trips including a life changing cross-cultural in the beautiful country of Guatemala. As we begin married life, we are blessed to have much of what we need for a simple home. We have lived in separate houses/apartments for over a year and have the basics to start a small apartment together. So this registry offers you a chance to help us create an amazing honeymoon, our first adventure as a married couple. We hope that you will find a way here to give us a gift of experiences and memories, gifts that last much longer than things.

We of course will document along the way and will make sure to send you a picture or two.

Thank you so much for being a part of our wedding day, and for helping shape us as a couple over the last 5 years.

Ev & Kels

P.S. Traveler's Joy takes a small portion of what you give us via credit card to cover their costs of hosting/credit fees. However they offer an option to mark what you want to give and then note that you will pay/send a check at a later time. We save money on the fee and you do not have to give Credit card info. Either way works but look for a grey tab in the credit card section when you "checkout" should you want to send a check/cash. Thanks!

We're going to Sedona, Arizona!

Our trip will begin with a week in Forest Lakes, Arizona, where Everett's family own a small A-Frame in the woods. We will spend our first week in the mountains fishing, reading, and relaxing together. Sunday we will zip up to the Grand Canyon to spend a night in a little cabin on the beautiful (and less visited) north rim. From there we head to Sedona, Arizona, a beautiful city in the northern Verde Valley of Arizona. We will be hiking, swimming, and exploring the red rock and beautiful views. At the end of the week we head to Everett's home town of Casa Grande for an overnight with friends before flying out Monday morning.
Thank you so much for making this trip a possibility for us.
