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.

Hello family and friends!

Welcome to our website! Here you will find information and details about our upcoming wedding. As of this week, we have a date and a venue picked out: Saturday, May 25, 2013, in Seattle, Washington!

We have so many friends and family all around the world that we want to share all the exciting details with. We know, however, that not everyone is going to be able to join us for the actual event in Seattle (if all 103k people who liked this photo on Facebook came, we wouldn’t even be able to hold the event at CenturyLink Field!). However, for those attending, this site is where you will find info regarding travel and hotels.

More details to come. For now, please enjoy these photos of the famous White House proposal that made us an international Internet sensation (for a day).


Ben and Matthew
