Friends and Family,

Sometimes the journey of life is best celebrated with a journey.

Welcome to our Honeymoon registry. Laurel and I have been blessed in many ways and are wholeheartedly looking forward to the day of our wedding. Your presence and best wishes on the day our lives officially begin together is all we truly desire from those closest to us. If you feel the need to also provide gifts, please consider using this website.

While we know we don't have everything we'll ever need, we don't need for much. In creating guest lists for the wedding, we realized what truly drove us to bring so many wonderful people together. The memories we have shared with all of you are the most valuable gifts we own. In that spirit, we decided the best thing you could give us to celebrate this milestone is helping us take the trip of a lifetime and build memories and experiences that will remain fond between Laurel and I forever.

We have decided to take a Honeymoon Cruise through the Mediterranean this summer. Our destination may be decided, but the style in which we travel and the activities we do are placed firmly in your hands. Please visit the Gift Inventory below to see how you can help. The Trip Information map can show you where we'll visit and how we'll be celebrating.

Thank you for the memories thus far, and the many we have yet to create. We look forward to seeing you on the wedding day.

Sincerely,
Laurel Gehrke and Daniel Valdez

We're going to Meditteranean Cruise!

The daunting challenge of choosing our honeymoon destination proved too difficult for either of us to find a correct answer. Instead of choosing a single location to spread our wings, we opted to see the world like we never have before. We found a twelve night cruise that will bounce us all over the Mediterranean to see some of the most historic, romantic, delicious, and amazing cities in the world.

Ten cities in less than two weeks is how we chose to start our lives together, focusing on an experience we have never had the opportunity to take and will never be able to repeat. With the help of our friends and family, we will create incredible memories stronger than any Cuisinart.

Spain, France, Italy, Croatia, Greece, Sicily, and a quick layover in England; check out our plans for each in the gift registry section.
