❝ Love is a seeking for a way of life; a way that cannot be followed alone.❞ (Ansel Adams)

Yosemite National Park

The Wawona Hotel | 4:15 p.m. | BBQ reception


Why Yosemite?

"You both live in Chicago," you might say. "Why get married 2,000 miles away?"

Well, it's beautiful, for one. Heather grew up in the mountains of Central California and always thought that if she were ever to get married (a very long shot), she would do it in the heart of those mountains. Drew, being the flexible, supportive guy he is, was happy to play along.

This is Ansel Adams and John Muir country. You'll be hard-pressed to leave without a soft spot for it in your heart.

The reception

The reception will take place immediately after the ceremony in the dining room of the Wawona. We'll be serving a barbecue buffet, which the Wawona is known for!

Dress code

Central California can be hot during the summer. Sundresses and loose-fitting dress clothing are appropriate. Since the ceremony will be outdoors, spiky high heels might be difficult to walk in. It can get brisk at night, however, so bring a light jacket.

Registries & well-wishes

We are registered at the following places:

If you want to send a card, exploding cigar or other greeting, you can mail it to Heather c/o the Chicago Tribune, 435 N. Michigan Ave., Chicago, IL 60611.

Will Heather's horse be there?

Though there was talk of having Heather's horse Rascal act as ringbearer, Heather and Drew decided that they'd prefer not to run the risk of having the floral arrangements mysteriously disappear.
