THE OFFICIAL WEBPAGE FOR THE McDONNELL-CRAIG WEDDING EXTRAVAGANZA!
THE EVENT IS QUICKLY APPROACHING! Please read below for updates:
Hi! Glynnis and I wanted to have a place where we could aggregate all of the important information about our upcoming wedding, so we created this page! You will find all of the important information regarding the celebration below, including the wedding location and suggestions for accommodations, as well as links to our registry and honeymoon fund!
We can't even begin to describe how excited we are to tie the knot and celebrate the occasion with all of the important people in our lives, and we hope you are excited as well! It's going to be a fantastic celebration!
Read below for more info:
Where: 384 Spring Hill Rd, Petaluma, CA 94952
When: September 19th, 2015
Valet service will be available at the wedding venue, but parking will be limited. If you have the opportunity to carpool to the venue, please do so and help us keep the number of cars at a minimum.
Also, since there will be alcohol served at the wedding, please drink responsibly and assign a designated driver. The number for local taxi services will also be available if the need arises.
Recent events in the area have prompted us to note the extreme fire hazard in the area. There will be a designated smoking area, located at the pizza oven, near the entrance to the venue. This will be the ONLY designated smoking area. Please be cautious with your butts and ashes and discard them in an appropriate receptacle, in the designated smoking area.
We recommend using VRBO or AirBnb.com to find a vacation rental.
The Sheraton in Petaluma is also very highly recommended and a beautiful hotel to stay in.
WEATHER AND WARDROBE CONSIDERATIONS
Although this is technically a summer wedding in the countryside, it is outdoors, and therefore the temperatures can be quite cool in the evening, especially given the weather as the event approaches. We HIGHLY recommend bringing a coat or jacket to keep the cold from settling in while you are not shaking it on the dance floor.
Speaking of the dance floor, we are excited to announce that we have booked a great live funk band for the wedding! Bring your dancing shoes and get ready to move your bootay to the funktastic sounds of The Soul Section!
As a final note, the venue is an outdoor location, set in multiple gardens with many paths. We strongly recommend that you wear wedges in lieu of high heels, as some of the paths cross over dirt and heels may sink into the ground.
Glynnis and I realized that our presence might be pretty scarce before and after the wedding, and that we may not be able to spend a lot of one on one time with everyone.
We decided to set some time aside after the rehearsal dinner on Friday at some place where we can all sit down and relax. We will post the location and timeframe here once we get the details worked out. Chances are high that it will be at TAPS in downtown Petaluma.
UPDATE: We are planning to be at TAPS in downtown Petaluma sometime after the rehearsal dinner. We are aiming to arrive between 8:30 and 9:00PM. See you then!
