If you would like to purchase us a wedding gift from our registry, please find the information below:

Crate & Barrel -
~ Go to the main website. Click on the gray "Gift Registry" on the top left corner. Type in either one of our full names into the website to find us.

Bed, Bath and Beyond -
~ Go to the main website. Click on the white "Bridal & Gift Registry" tab located above the search box. Type in one of our full names into the website.

Heifer - (if you would like to donate to a charitable organization in our honor, we have registered at Heifer to make it easier for you)
~ Click HERE to go directly to our page. If that doesn't work, go to the red "Gift" tab and select "Gift Registry" in the drop down menu. Enter in either of our names to find our list.

Note: If you are having problems finding our name, try not typing in our full name in case you are spelling it incorrectly. The search engines will work with only part of a name filled out. It would probably be easier using Derek's name as many search engines have a hard time finding "JJ" Also, we registered under "JJ" not "J.J."

Thank you again for all your love and support. We truly appreciate it!

We have booked our caterer! We are going with Contemporary Catering. Our meal will be gluten-free! Can you believe it?!? They have prepared a special menu just for us.

Here is a sample of what you can be expecting:

Mango-Avocado Salsa on Cucumber Medallion
Lime and Chili Marinated Skewers of Grilled NY Strip
"Take-Out" Noodles - Thai Style Rice Noodle "Salad" with Julliened Vegetables, Scallions, Sesame and a Soy-Honey Vinaigrette
Skewers of Grilled and Sliced NY Strip with a Dijon-Peppercorn Dipping Sauce
Grilled Chicken Breast with a Lime-Cilantro Marinade

Asian Style Napa Cabbage Salad with Red Peppers, Carrots and Black Sesame
Soy-Ginger Marinated Vegetables with Eggplant, Zucchini, Yellow Squash, Red Peppers, etc...
Thai Style Quinoa with Seared Basil, Mint and Mango
Roasted Tropical Vegetables - Baby Corn, Mango, Pineapple, Papaya, Pettipan Squash
Red Curry-Coconut with Fresh Chicken Breast
Sauteed Filet Mignon with Fresh Vegetables, Mint and Chili

Derek and I went to our taste testing yesterday. We didn't sample everything, but the food we did have was excellent (the red curry chicken was my favorite)! Please let me know if you have any food allergies.

Nathaniel there is really great. He is also going to be coordinating some of our other stuff (a few vendors, rentals, etc).

I couldn't be more thrilled! What do you think of the menu?!?
