FAQ

Q: WHAT IS THE THEME?

Dearest reader, if you received our invitation and still can’t figure it out, we suggest you read this Instagram post, or watch the latest season of a popular regency era-themed Netflix show.

Q: DO WE NEED TO BE TESTED FOR COVID-19?

Yes. Some cities across the country are seeing an uptick in cases again (eyeroll), including Los Angeles County, so we are asking our guests to be vaccinated and boosted, and to provide a negative COVID-19 test at least 48 hours prior to the wedding. We’ll have someone checking COVID-19 vaccine cards at our venue’s entrances.



If you know you aren’t feeling well, please don’t come. We’ll have a video of our wedding day up on YouTube shortly after our event, so you can see what you missed then!



Q: WILL WE NEED TO WEAR MASKS?

We’re crossing our fingers that masks won’t be required, however, that can change closer to the wedding day. So pack your masks just in case.

Q: WHEN SHOULD I RSVP BY?

Ideally, May 1st, however we did send our invitations out pretty late, so if you need another week or so to get those back to us, no worries! We’re also hip and modern so you can also give us a call too saying that you’ll be coming!



Please make sure to write your name (names if we’ve approved a +1 for you) on the RSVP card, mark if you’re attending and vaccinated or declining with regret, and put initials next to your entrée selection. Please reach out to us if you have any dietary restrictions!



Q: WHAT DO I WEAR?

Yes, our dress code is pretty specific. Not only because we want the color scheme to look cohesive in our photos, but also because we want you to look great too!



The dress code is formal with flair and black tie optional. Think garden party but with a little bit of Met Gala spice and Royal Wedding vibes. Ladies, if you wanna wear a fascinator like Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie at Prince William and Kate’s 2011 royal wedding, go for it! If you wanna wear a pink gown with puffy sleeves, be my guest! Or if you wanna wear a fitted light blue suit with sparkles, we welcome it!



Pastels, light colors and florals are what we’re envisioning for ladies, and suits/tuxes are the way to go for men.



Some things to consider: our ceremony will be on grass so ladies, maybe rethink those stilettos or have another pair of shoes to change into. And the location of our wedding is on a peninsula so it may be windy/a little chilly even in June.



The only thing we ask that you do not wear are these:



Ladies, please do not wear white, red or black. Gentlemen, please do not wear tennis shoes, white tuxes, jeans or flip flops.

Q: WHY NOT WHITE, RED OR BLACK FOR THE LADIES AND NO TENNIS SHOES, WHITE TUXES, JEANS OR FLIP FLOPS FOR THE MEN?

Well, we’re glad you asked. White is pretty self explanatory -- and if you are still questioning it, it’s because wearing white is disrespectful to the bride, duh! No red because it’s a flashy color and will definitely ruin the color scheme. And no black because it’s not a funeral, folks. We’ve been waiting 3 years to CELEBRATE! So no crying now.



And for the men – even though we’re at a golf course, you obviously won’t be playing golf that day, so no tennis shoes please. And white tuxes have always been tacky to the bride. She will definitely roll her eyes and avoid photos with you at all costs. Jeans and flip flops (together or separately) at a wedding are just a hard no, especially for ours.



If you do happen to wear any of these things, the bride will be ignoring you all night long and our team will have you seated in the far back for both the reception and ceremony.



Q: WHERE’S YOUR REGISTRY?

We’re lucky to have everything we could possibly need as a new couple. But now, as we plan on starting a family, money is greatly appreciated for a home – and for our honeymoon!



Please check out our "registry" section here.

Q: IS THERE A REHEARSAL DINNER?

This will be a private event for our sponsors and wedding party only. Sorry!

Q: WHERE SHOULD I STAY?

We’re unsure how many folks are coming from out of town at this point in the wedding planning process, so we aren’t doing room blocks at hotels. However, we recommend a few of the surrounding cities to book your hotel, including Redondo Beach, Torrance, San Pedro and Long Beach.

Q: CAN I BRING MY KIDS?

Please contact the bride and groom first! Thanks.

Q: CAN I BRING A PLUS 1?

If you were allowed a plus one, it would say so on you invitation. Unfortunately, we don't have seats at the venue for plus ones that weren't invited.

Q: HOW CAN WE GET TO THE VENUE?

Rideshare is highly recommended, however, please note that due to what is currently happening in the world, there has been a rideshare driver shortage across the country, including LA.

📢📢 ANNOUNCEMENTS 📢📢

For our families and close friends, we know this is probably the first time in a while that you are all seeing each other in one place, and while we are so excited to see you all, we are putting our wedding celebration first before anything else. Especially since we’ve waited THREE years to have this event.



So, if you have a big announcement to share (pregnancies, engagements, new house, etc.), please don’t use our event as the place to announce your big news. Otherwise, we'll have to bill you! -- just kidding :) -- or are we? 😏



⛔️🍺⛔️PLEASE LEAVE YOUR FLASKS AND LIQUOR BOTTLES AT HOME ⛔️🍺⛔️

Our venue is pretty strict about having outside alcohol on its property. So please leave your flasks at home – we promise there will be plenty of drinks to go around.



🐶🐶 NO PETS 🐶🐶

While we are having our dog and our mom’s puppy at our ceremony, please leave your pets at home unless they are service animals. The venue does not allow animals
