First, we would like to thank all of our family and friends! All of you have had a special effect on our relationship in one way or another. We would not be where we are or what we are today without all of you!
While we know some of you won't be able to make it down to South Carolina for our wedding, we hope you understand it is being held down here strictly so we can offer our guests exactly what we want...A laid back, fun, relaxing, enjoyable celebration. We will miss you if you can't be there and for those of you that will be making it, we hope you enjoy yourselves!
We decided a long time ago that it was extremely important to both of us, that we see/experience the world for what it has to offer. The reminder of this desire was the Alaska to South Carolina roadtrip we took in July of 2008!
When Chris' brother Matt was heading back to the northeast after serving in the Army, he was looking for some company on his trek from Anchorage, AK back to Massachusetts. It turned out to be the most influential trip either one of us has ever taken. Seeing the natural beauty of Alaska, the emptiness of the Yukon Territory, the wildlife and scenery of the Canadian Rockies, the out of this world nature of Yellowstone National Park and the awesome views of the Grand Canyon all had a major impact on our core values. To this day we still reminice about the trip and how amazing the whole experience was.
So with that said...
We will be embarking on an 18 day tour of Europe, visiting 8 different countries and 7 world heritage sites. Our trip is through Contiki Tours, which is a tour service company for 18-35 year olds. We will be traveling with a group of people from all around the world. Most of the traveling will be by coach with the occasional ferry ride.

Once again, thank you for helping us have an experience of a lifetime, we hope that all of you get the chance in life to see what this world has to offer, never take a moment for granted, and never let work=life!!!!
