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 }

Planning Update

Hi friends and family!!

We are still busily planning to make this event fun for everyone who will make the trip to help us celebrate. If you’ve received your save the date and are itching to get a look at the details, please make sure you keep an eye on the event specifics page for updates. Formal invitations will be soon to follow.

If you aren’t attending, you can still stay up to date with all the goings-on on this page, and we will post when we can!

All our love,
Ben and Matthew.

Friends and family:

As you already know, we will be getting married in Seattle on May 25, 2013. What you might not know is that we are apparently setting a trend! Check out this article from The Advocate: Get Hitched in Seattle, Then Stay for the Food.

Did you know we have been featured in The Advocate before? They featured photos of us at the 2012 Marine Corps Birthday Ballnews of our engagement and Matthew’s service under DADT.
