Our Story

Jay met Kat the old fashion way... at a bar in the Mission: Double Dutch. After some dancing, Jay wrote his number on a napkin, folded it up and gave it to Kat. Kat thought he had given her a piece of paper to throw away but she decided to keep it anyway. A few weeks later, they had their first date at Cha Cha Cha in the Mission and the rest, as they say (as cheesy as it sounds), is history.

Together, they share the same value in putting family first, a love for visiting Hawaii and Disneyland, a dedication to early morning routines, a commitment to at-home workouts (Body Beast, INSANITY, P90X, you name it!), an admiration for movies, and a respect for organic-living as well as wearing socks at all times! They have almost 10 years of memories - experiencing joy, fun and resilience.

Last Christmas Eve, during sunrise at Half Moon Bay Beach, Jay proposed and Kat excitedly accepted. Thereafter, staying to true form, they went for a run along the shore!

They are both very grateful to celebrate their wedding surrounded by their loved ones this coming fall!

BEACHES

A mile-long, spectacularly perfect beach that is home to seven resorts, high-end shopping, various restaurants and activities.
*TIP: There are designated public beach access parking spaces at: Marriot’s Maui Ocean Club (10), Ka’anapali Beach Hotel (10), Westin Maui Resort & Spa (28), Ka’anapali Ali’i Resort (11), Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa (20), Hyatt Regency Maui Resort & Spa (74) and Whaler’s Village (21).

On the north end of Ka’anapali Beach, and is a great place to cliff-jump into the ocean, and snorkel.
*TIP: There are designated public beach access parking spaces at the Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa (20), which is located at the north end of Ka'anapali Parkway and is the closest to Black Rock.

A beautiful, long, wide, undeveloped sandy beach with huge views and a large shore-break.
*TIP: In the afternoon, when the surf is up, a strong shore-break exists and can be dangerous for the inexperienced swimmers.

Malu'aka, also known as “Turtle Town” is south of Wailea and at the end of Makena Road - the entrance is off the main street so make sure not to drive past it! A long and wide beach with beautiful white sand and is gorgeous thanks to the abundant coral reef growing off shore. Sea turtles also frequent the beach - a huge draw for snorkelers and kayakers who hope to catch a glimpse of the beloved Hawaiian honu.
*TIP: In the morning, when conditions are calm, the visibility often provides excellent snorkeling. When it is windy in the afternoon, visibility drops dramatically and you might want to look elsewhere for better conditions.

Wailea Beach is wide, the sand perfect, and the ocean inviting (if you don’t mind a resort vibe and a crowd to go with it). When the ocean is calm, snorkeling is very good around the rocky outcroppings that define both ends of the beach. Boogie boarding and body surfing are also fun in the typically regularly formed, small waves and gentle slope.
*TIP: In the afternoon, when the surf is up, a strong shore-break exists and can be dangerous for the inexperienced swimmers. After you are finished with Wailea Beach, we recommend eating at Monkeypod Kitchen - so make sure to book your reservation in advance!

*RSVP QUESTIONS*

Q. When is the RSVP deadline?

We are requesting RSVPs as soon as possible - we have only invited family and close friends. So, if you know that you are able to come, please let us know by mailing in your RSVP card. This is a destination wedding and it assists us greatly with the planning process to know our headcount ASAP. Should we not receive your RSVP by FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 1, 2019, we will assume you will not be attending (our feelings will not be hurt, we promise!).

Q. May I bring more people than the number of seats stated in my invitation?

Although we would love to celebrate with everyone, we unfortunately have limited seating in the venue and can only accommodate the NAMES AND NUMBER OF SEATS reserved for each invitation. We thank you all for your understanding.

Q. Are kids welcome?

We love babies and all of your kids! However, due to space constraints at the venue, our Ceremony/Reception will be ADULTS ONLY.

We will provide a buffet with MANY food options!

Q: I have dietary restrictions; may I make a special request?

Please indicate your dietary restrictions on your RSVP card immediately and we will do our best to accommodate! So, if you know that you are able to come, it is important to let us know by mailing in your RSVP card ASAP.

Q: Where can I view your registry?

Our greatest gift is your presence on our wedding day so we do not have a registry established. At the same time, if you desire to give nonetheless, a monetary gift is preferred.

When is the best time to book my trip?

Please book your travel and accommodations after the holiday season and at least 6 months in advance (by April 2019).
