PARTY + RSVP INFO

Hi, Friends and Family!

 

We want to let everyone know that we have decided to cancel our wedding party in June. While we are disappointed not to have a large gathering, we came to this decision because of the ongoing threat of COVID and the uncertainty around new variants. 

 

If you already have plane tickets and accommodations, we would be delighted to see you (on a smaller scale), treat you to a meal, and show you around the city.

 

Over the next couple years, we invite you to reach out so that we can plan a series of small celebratory get-togethers in Chicago and/or wherever you reside.

 

Since the wedding ceremony, we've been keeping busy.  Javier has become a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), and Kat has become a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC).  We've moved from the condo to a quaint home on the northwest side of Chicago and also adopted an energetic Australian cattle dog named Marty.  As always, our chinchilla Yoda is king of the castle, and he approves of his new palace.  


Sending Love,


Kat & Javi

 
COVID-19 GUIDELINES

In addition to following Chicago Covid-19 safety guidelines, guests must be fully vaccinated in order to attend our event.

REGISTRY

We are honored you will share in our 2nd special day. We're lucky to already have a home full of everything we need, so please enjoy browsing our Honeyfund wish list, where you can contribute funds to our dream honeymoon to Europe!

 

Thank you to those who have already contributed.

 

Our dream honeymoon would begin with a flight to Italy, which will serve as the springboard to traveling to Greece and Spain. We are hoping to enjoy the specialties that the countries offer. We would also like to connect with locals so that we can experience the country as authentically as possible.
