Four days!

We are in Seattle, beginning the final week of preparations before the wedding on Saturday. Everything is set, so we are just tying up the last few loose ends. We can’t wait to see our families this weekend, and only wish everyone else we know could be here to celebrate with us. We do plan to stream the ceremony on Livestream, so watch this space for details.

Engagement Photos, Part 1

Our good friend Jae Hansen (Photography by Jae) came to DC a few weeks ago and took some photos of Ben and me to celebrate our engagement. As is always the case with the two of us, we can never manage to be serious for more than a few minutes at a time. Jae is a great sport and managed to capture a few of these moments for posterity. You can check out some more on the other page of photos.

Wedding Registry

We have been overwhelmed with all the support we have received since our engagement last year. Many people have been asking where we are registered. Because we are moving to Japan this summer, we don’t really want large gifts–we’re short on space as it is! There are a few items, but in lieu of gifts, we hope you’ll consider helping us cover the expenses of moving to Okinawa that the military won’t pay for, because of DOMA. If you’re feeling generous, please take a look at the registry on and keep checking back.

All our love,

{ Ben + Matthew }
