The Wedding

Char and Mike were married July 11, 2009!

How they met

Our friend Violet says, "Hey Char, can I bring my friend Mike to your party?" Naturally my response was, "The more the merrier!"

Mike and Char met in May of 2004. One year later the two were conspired against (for?) by the MOH and Violet. Thank you to you both for meddling in our lives like you knew you should!

Mike & Char decided to bid on a house in July of 2008. I think the ring came next. Mike says he found it in a box of Lucky Charms. Mike & Char became engaged August 2008.


The wedding ceremony was held July 11th, 2009 at Lighthouse Field in Santa Cruz, CA.

NOTE: The address is 701 W. Cliff Dr. Although the directions in the invitation are correct, the address was missing the "W"!


Reception was held immediately after at the Harvey West Clubhouse

An alternative to giving us stuff, is giving stuff to others! Donations to Jacob's Heart help children with cancer and their families. The Leukemia-Lymphoma Society is also near and dear to our hearts as a friend of ours recently passed away from the disease.
