Hi everyone!

First off, we'd like to say that your presence at our celebration is the greatest gift we could ask for. The time, effort, and expense of traveling to be with us is something we deeply appreciate, and we are so thrilled that we will be able to celebrate this happy occasion with you.

As you know, we live in a small Manhattan apartment which has led us to not coveting or needing a lot of things. It's worked for us though, because we both value experiences. While Mitchell and I have taken many exciting trips together, we are very much looking forward to our first adventure as husband and wife in Japan & South Korea. It is because of the lifetime of memories we will gain from this trip that we finally settled on a honeymoon registry. We greatly appreciate and will fondly remember these gifts for years to come. After all, the memories from this honeymoon can actually fit in our apartment!

We'll do our best to document our experience via photo and include it in your much-deserved "thank you" note.

Thank you again and we can't wait to see you in New Orleans (or earlier!)
