Welcome to Our Wedding Website

To all of our family and friends who are so important, we hope you can come share this special day with us.


Our wedding will be a casually elegant affair, at a lake house, with close friends and family. "Celebrations at Lake Gaston" is a large lake-front property less than 2 hours from the Raleigh-Durham airport. Weather permitting, the ceremony will be held outside on the lawn, with the reception on-site. RDU has direct flights from Toronto (YYZ) via United and Air Canada. A more economic alternative is flying from Buffalo Niagara (BUF) to RDU (non-direct) which is about 1/3rd the cost flying from YYZ.

If you've ever had Sunday dinner with us, then you know that you will never leave the table hungry or with an empty glass. This family-style reception will be no different, since all the recipes come from Rob and his family.

So come hungry and make sure to leave room for dessert, because we are making the wedding cake too. The full menu can be found HERE.

If you have any nut, fish, or dairy food allergies, please let us know so that we make you aware of which dishes to avoid - there will still be plenty of options to choose from.

One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one hasn't eaten well.

Sunday morning we will be hosting a European brunch: cold cuts, cheese, yogurt, fruit, croissants, crepes, juice, and mimosas.

Please feel free to join us any time after 10:30 am and hang out at the lake house for the rest of the afternoon. Weather permitting, bring a bathing suit and towel to enjoy the water.

One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating.
