We’re so excited to celebrate starting this new chapter of our lives with all of you! We hope you’ll find everything you need here, if not don’t hesitate to reach out.

Our Story

We met at COSI, through mutual friends at a fundraiser – we’ll leave it to the reader to decide if it was over a romantic game of rat basketball, Joe rescuing Courtney from a terrifying fall from the high wire bike, or a spirited bidding session on the Periodic Table.  What can we say, we’re obviously meant for each other (read: nerds).

After a year and a half full of travel, hiking, training for Pelotonia together, endless good food and wine, we took our most extensive trip to date.  We planned a 10 day California road trip, spanning San Francisco, Big Sur, Napa, Sonoma and culminating at a good friend’s wedding in Lake Tahoe.  Joe proposed oceanside in Big Sur, surrounded by sun and sand and not to be forgotten, the serenade of sea lions.
