Our Story


Sarah and Sam were at opposite ends of the Appalachian Trail, studiously filling out their applications for Lehigh University...

the start

Sam asked Sarah to join him for dinner at a tapas restaurant. When Sarah suggested they start with the kalamata olives (Sam's nemesis), he pretended that he loved them and ate three. Many meals later he learned that she didn't like them either.

new york & ernie

Sarah and Sam fell in love with Brooklyn's Park Slope neighborhood. After taking one too many morning walks through Prospect Park, they realized that it didn't make any sense not to share their neighborhood with a dog.


In late 2022, Sarah and Sam decided to leave the big city and hit the Oregon Trail. They're so excited to tie the knot after (almost!) 9 wonderful years together.

Crate & Barrel


We've tried to answer some common questions below, but please feel free to reach out to Sarah at or Sam at if you have any questions!

Question: If I am flying, should I fly into Hartsfield-Jackson?

Answer: Yes! Roswell is about 45 minutes (it's Atlanta, count on some traffic!) from the airport.

Question: I lost my invite & RSVP card! How do I RSVP?

Answer: No RSVP card required - just send us a note to with an Accept/Decline and the names of your party.

Question: What's the weather like down south in November?

Answer: Your guess is as good as ours. Thankfully, our venue is prepared for the elements. Moral of the story: the weather matters not!

Question: What do I wear?

Answer: You mean, other than your beautiful smile? The dress code is cocktail attire; the dance floor is your runway. Note: The plan (weather permitting) is to have an outdoor ceremony followed by an outdoor cocktail hour before moving inside for the evening.

Question: Is there parking at Kimball Hall?

Answer: Yes, there is free parking at the church across the street from the venue. There are also two handicap parking spots at the venue.

Question: Can we bring our kids?

Answer: We're glad you asked! This is an adults-only wedding. Enjoy the night out, parents!

Question: Help! I've got two left feet!

Answer: Then shine up those shoes and drag 'em out to the dance floor!
