Harvey Couple Donates Reception

We have decided to donate the funds that were to be used on our wedding reception to instead help friends and family who were severly impacted by Hurricane Harvey, and have cancelled our registry with the hope of collecting additional funds to put toward the total amount given.  The goal amount was set as a match to our initial donation amount of at least $5,000.

We promise to remain transparent in the amount of money raised and multiple outlets have asked to report a follow-up when the gifts are given.  100% of our reception funds and any donations collected will go directly into the hands of three Houston families.
