Matt and I got married in June 2013 at Sweetwater Farm at Grace Winery.  We had an amazing weekend with our friends and family!  Here are some of our favorite memories of the day as documented by our photographer, Melissa Hassey:

During the months leading up to our wedding this web page was our wedding site where our guests could go for information about our venue and other event details.  I don’t want to delete the original information yet so I’m leaving it here at the bottom of the page… enjoy!  🙂

Welcome to our wedding page.  Matt and I are looking forward to sharing our wedding day with our friends and family on June 8th!
