When & Where

Please join us

Both the ceremony and reception will be held at the Barn at Valhalla, just west of Chapel Hill, NC. The ceremony will begin at 4 p.m., but guests are encouraged to arrive early, to avoid traffic near the UNC vs. Notre Dame game. Dress code is fall finery and comfortable shoes! The wedding site is outdoors, so please be aware you may need to walk across grass or uneven areas. Food, fun and dancing are planned into the evening and both the ceremony and reception are kid friendly.

The best gift we can receive is seeing the faces of friends and family surrounding us on the big day. If you really want to bring a gift though, we love things made by the crafty and clever people we know and things that will remind us of you. We also have registries at Macy's, Bed Bath & Beyond and Target. Or donate to one of our preferred charities at our I Do Foundation page.
