September 28, 2012 - First "I Love You"

December 8, 2012 - Heather got down on one knee on the labyrinth at Perkins School of Theology and asked Amanda to be her wife. (Amanda said yes).

...a million other little moments leading up to...

June 14, 2014 - Religious marriage ceremony in Dallas with family and friends.

June 20, 2014 - (Or thereabouts)... Legal marriage in Lowell, Massachusetts.

We're getting married on June 14, 2014, in our Dallas church, and then we're going to fly to the Boston area for a few days for the legal wedding. Chip in and help us get hitched! We are grateful for gifts of all sizes, and most grateful for you, our friends and family who celebrate with us!

We've added below a few ways you can help out, just post what your gift is for (or toward) in the comment section. Funds will of course go first toward the necessaries of our wedding fund for the ceremony here in Dallas and then toward things we need to accomplish in Boston, but what we've added below is more fun than listing the expenses of catering, event spaces and the like. With hope and determination, Heather and I are working on saving enough ourselves to cover these things so we can use your gifts to enjoy our honeymoon and legal wedding. Also, If you've been to Boston and have a recommendation, leave that in the comment instead and we'll give it a try:
