We have been blessed beyond belief by the love of our family and friends. We are so excited to celebrate the start of our lives together with you.
We already have so much of everything that we would love if you made a donation to a cause very important to us in lieu of giving us a traditional wedding gift.
Our dear friend Hallie Bratton, who was like a niece to us, lost her decade long struggle with Bi-Polar Disorder on August 16, 2018 when she took her own life.
Hallie was a force of nature and brought so much joy into our lives, and the lives of all of her family and friends. We miss her dearly, and know we will especially miss her on our wedding day.
In honor of Hallie, we would like people to have the option of donating to the Jed Foundation, an organization devoted to preventing suicide by teens and young adults. This is a way for us to include Hallie on our special day.
