Cliff House

That’s right, we’re returning to the Cliff House — the site of our commitment ceremony in 2009 — to celebrate our getting married… legally, finally! We’ll have hearty hors d’oeuvres and carving stations, delicious dessert, an open bar, and a dance floor for you to enjoy — all with a gorgeous view of Ocean Beach, Seal Rock, and the Pacific Ocean.

What to wear?
Semiformal attire is recommended. For the men, that can be with or without jacket or tie, as you prefer. We likely will rock bow ties. Like we do. For the party theme and decorations, we’re thinking “dapper” or, loosely, “old-timey San Francisco.” Feel free to embrace that in your attire, too, if you like.

What to bring?
Just your dapper selves! Some of you have inquired where we are registered for gifts. Your friendship, love, and celebration of our union already are the greatest gifts we could desire.

If you nevertheless are inclined to mark the occasion in that fashion, then in lieu of any gifts directly to us we ask that you consider making a tax-deductible donation to an organization particularly close to our hearts, Marriage Equality USA:
