Wedding and Mass
Saturday, May 2nd, at 10:00 am
Cathedral of St. Matthew The Apostle
1725 Rhode Island Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20036
We are blessed to celebrate our wedding in our beautiful home parish, St. Matthew’s Cathedral. We met each other through this parish community. We come to Mass here every week. We are active with the young adult community here. This Cathedral and the people in it have united us, supported us, and brought us both closer to God. We couldn’t imagine getting married anywhere else.
We are also grateful that our friend Fr. Kevin Regan will be celebrating with us and helping to prepare us for our life together.
The ceremony will begin promptly at 10:00 am.
Shuttle busses will be available from both the Westin Georgetown and the Washington Marriott Georgetown to St. Matthew’s for the ceremony. Busses will depart both locations promptly at 9:30 am.
To help us honor the sacredness of this Sacrament, we request a technology-free ceremony. Please be fully present with us and keep cameras, phones, etc., off and away during the ceremony. We promise there will be plenty of professional photos to share with you afterward.
The ceremony is the most important part of the day, in which we join our two lives together in the presence of God and you, our family and friends. Thank you for celebrating with us.
Shuttle busses will be provided from the St. Matthew’s to cocktail hour at the Westin Georgetown following the ceremony.

SOME OTHER STUFF

We would love to see anyone we can on Friday night at Boveda, a restaurant and bar inside the Westin. We will get there after the rehearsal dinner, probably around 9-9:30pm, but you are of course welcome to head down there whenever you like!
Boveda is inside the Westin, down the stairs from the elevators.

Before you head out of town, you’re welcome to come to our hospitality room off the lobby of the Marriott (1221 22nd St. NW) for some coffee and light snacks.
