Dear Friends and Family, 

Thank you for being a part of our special day. From the bottom of our hearts, your presence is truly our presents. 

Yet many of you have expressed a burning desire to express yourselves in a more tangible, measurable way. The obvious solution is the traditional wedding registry, where we would subject ourselves to the Bed Bath and Beyonds and Targets of the world, feigning momentary interest in expensive espresso machines and decorative bath towels in an effort to maintain the status quo. 

Our guests are better than that. We owe you honesty and the truth is, we've got everything we need. We're not going to ask you for a $120 picture frame, an $80 trash can, or a set of 2000 thread count sheets. We'll save both of us the embarrassment of your future visit in which you come across that unopened Soda Stream box in our garage. 

Our purpose in selecting this site for our registry is simple:  Cash is king. It's easy, it's flexible, and it doesn't require a trip to the store. You won't need to lug a big box to the north Georgia mountains and we won't need to haul them back to Chicago. 

Your investment in our future means so much to us. We've like to one day buy a new home. We'd like to take a honeymoon at some point. We'd like to pay off debts. We'd like to buy a car. Most importantly, we'd like to make these purchases together.    

While we certainly don't expect your gifts to cover all of our needs, every little bit helps. A toaster oven and a set of steak knives, however, does not help.  

By no means are you required to give a gift. We'll gladly take a hug, a handshake, or just a smile after we say "I do."  But this site really does make things easy - give it a shot. I'm sure you can figure it out. 

Just click the "Registry" button on the left to begin.
