We're Getting Married!
We're Getting Married!
We grew up in Minnesota and met in Wisconsin.
It seems appropriate to join in the middle and celebrate our love.
Our wedding ceremony and reception will take place outdoors at the beautiful
Carpenter Nature Center overlooking the Saint Croix River Valley.
It's safe to say we'll both bawl our eyes out—with tears of joy, of course.
Who says we can't have dessert first? It's our party and we'll do what we want.
It's time to celebrate—complete with dinner, music, dancing, drinks and photo booth fun.
We have reserved a block of hotel rooms at Country Inn & Suites in Cottage Grove. If you mention the Carpenter Wedding, there's a good chance you'll get a discounted rate. Cool Beans!

Dressy-casual is the code. The wedding festivities will take place outdoors and under an open-air pavilion, so check the forecast and dress accordingly.
Guys: khakis, a button-down, and an optional tie if you’re up for it—but let's impress the ladies and leave our jeans at home.
Gals: a summery dress and flats or wedges are our recommendations—skip the stilettos (the nature center is grassy and we'd hate for you to sprain an ankle). Oh, and no white—bride's orders. :)
We love a good adventure and value the experiences we have together more than anything. We're planning on escaping the winter for some tropical Hawaiian excitement sometime next January. We would love it more than anything if you could help us make our honeymoon dreams a reality by contributing to an outing or other item on our honeymoon registry.
If you're in search of a quick and convenient way to show us you care, then this option is for you! We've selected lots of great items we need (or just really want), and all you have to do is pick your favorite. You can even choose to have it gift wrapped and delivered directly to us so that you don't have to haul a gift to the wedding. Heck yeah!
Prefer to shop in-store? That's cool with us! There's always something special about a hand-selected gift. There are lots of options ranging from household goods to board games—all of which will be thoroughly enjoyed and help make our lives easier and/or more fun.
