Can I bring my children/mother-in-law/great-aunt Sally?

We love ALL of your family members, however we want you to relax and enjoy the night! Please refrain from bringing anyone not included on your invitation.

Can I bring a date?

If your invitation says "and Guest", then yes. If not, we would prefer if it was just you!

What is "Summer Cocktail" attire?

First and foremost, we want you to be comfortable and wear something that you can dance in! If you need a little guidance...

Men: Suit (ties optional); Sport coat with khakis; Dress pants and a button down.

Women: Cocktail dress; Maxi dress; Dressy sundress or pantsuit.

**Please note that our ceremony and part of the reception will take place on the grass, so we encourage you to plan your footwear accordingly. Ladies, it would be best to wear wedges, flats/flat sandals, or a block heel.

What time should I arrive?

Please arrive between 5:00-5:15pm. The ceremony will be starting promptly at 5:30pm.

Can I take pictures at the ceremony?

We are so excited that you’ll be joining us, and we want you to relax and be fully present for our ceremony. We have a wonderful photographer who will capture every moment, and we’ll make sure you see those photos as soon as we do! With this in mind, we ask that you refrain from photos during the ceremony; for the reception? Go wild!

Where should I stay?

We have reserved a block of rooms at the Fairfield Inn & Suites in downtown Frederick, just 25 minutes from where the wedding will be held. Go to the "Guest Accommodations" tab for more info!

There are some other hotels in that same vicinity that you can book if you wish, although we do not have a special rate with them.

For those wanting a more "home-y" feel, check out Airbnb!

I have another question that wasn't listed here. What should I do?
