The Details

Sharon and Mike were united during a ceremony at Bartram's Garden, a historic garden in Philadelphia on the Schuykill River. There was a reception/party afterwards featuring delicious food, a great band, dancing, drinking, exploring the garden, photo booth pictures, and general merriment!

I am working on updating this site as a record of that AMAZING day! Please send us any good pictures you took, through email or facebook or whatever! I'll let everyone know when I get it done!


Frequently Asked Questions, Part One

Q: What should I wear?

A: Something spiffy. Keep in mind that the wedding is mostly outdoors, in a garden with trails and a big field by the water, so bring comfy walking shoes that can get dirty.

Really, we don't care what you wear as long as you feel comfortable and happy. If you like getting fancy, by all means, do. But whatever feels festive and fun to you!

Q: Who is your best man/maid of honor?

A: We aren't having a wedding party. But our closest friends and family will have special assignments and are being very wonderful and supportive.

Q: What will the weather be like?

A: No idea. The end of May is hard to predict. Check the internet right before. But know that if it rains, it will be fine. There are tents and some indoor space. They've had weddings during hurricanes before!

Q: What about the food?

A: The food will be SO GOOD. There will be many exciting options for all kinds of diets. It will be mostly vegetarian, with one fish dish. If you have very special dietary needs let us know on your R.S.V.P. form. We are prepared to have options for vegans and gluten-free folks.

Q: And drinks?

A: There will be a lot of wine and beer and a few fancy mixed drinks available. Also non-alcoholic fancy drinks and other options.

Q: What about the children?

A: We love the children! Bring them if you want! But just let us know so we can plan for them to eat. We will plan some fun games and stuff for them to play!

Q: What's the schedule like?

A: Please try to be there at 4. Folks will probably start arriving at 3:45, and Mike and I will show up to join you all for cocktails and appetizers around 4:15. The ceremony is around 4:30, and dinner is at 6!

Q: Do I have to get you a present?

A: No, not at all! But if you want to, we have 2 registries listed on this site, one for our honeymoon, and one for stuff. Alternatively, we'd also love if you gave a donation in our name to one of the charities listed.

Q: Can I bring my dog? You guys love dogs.

A: No, sorry, the historic part of Bartram's is off-limits to dogs.

Q: If I have further questions, should I call one of your mothers and ask them why you aren't doing everything the way I think you should do it?

A: NO. You should email us at, and we will gladly discuss anything you'd like.
