Our Story
We Are All Living in the Future Now

All our atoms came out of the depths of stars, and coalesced over eons into many diverse strands of self-awareness. We live in wonder, and seek kindred spirits. But how can we find each other?

21st Century technology! Without OKCupid, Carrie and Jason would likely not have met.

In St. Louis in 2014, we were both in interim phases of our lives, as Carrie was finishing occupational therapy grad school, and Jason was finishing a post-doctoral research stint. Jason had been out of circulation for many years, but was ready to try enjoying new company, and the internet was the obvious way to find dates with the interesting peoples. Carrie was ready to shut down her OKCupid presence when a photo of a bright-eyed, disheveled-hair guy with a cockatiel on his shoulder caught her eye. And she decided to give one more person one more chance.

On our first date, Jason literally tumbled out of a downpour with a broken umbrella, and Carrie greeted him with an easy welcoming smile and curious sparkling green eyes.

We were comfortable and laughing right from the start. We dazzled each other with quirky charms and a synthesis of gravity and levity. (Also, attraction!)

As it turned out, both our hearts were ready again to be sparked and be warmed with a lasting glow. We're both weird and smart in our own ways, and have forged a loving bond. Professionally, we've landed jobs as a professor and an occupational therapist. Together with Beaky and Mr. Wiggles (our cockatiel buddies), we are happy to be a little flock living in the city and enjoying life together! We complement and enhance each other and are blasting into the future together as a married dyad!

#SwoopStar2017

{PLEASE RSVP BY APRIL 20th}

Join us as hearts and stars align in a synasthesiastic celebration of our marriage! IT'S GOING TO BE TOTALLY LIT, FABULOUS, AND AWESOME!

Love encompasses all our senses, and to fully express our feelings we offer you a multi-sensory evening of art, music, drink, food, and activities. Be prepared to experience color as sound and music as a painting and love as a banquet on which we feed. Our wedding activities will feature Camry Ivory and Coloratura, a transmedia project that combines visual art and music. We are SO excited!!! There will also be: blocks rented from the St. Louis Science Center for guests to assemble into a 7 foot replica of the St. Louis Arch!, glow bracelets!, some kind of weird lights!, 4-player MarioKart on Gamecube!, origami and other crafts!

The wedding agenda is tentatively as so:

5:00 pm: Doors and bar open

5:30 pm: Ceremony starts. Don't be late!

6:30 pm: Taco feast extravaganza and Coloratura commences

7:00 pm: Activities, games, craft fun

9:00 pm: Dancing starts (other fun continues)
9:30pm: bar closes

10:00 pm: Lights out. You don't have to go home, but you can't stay at the Luminary. We suggest one of Cherokee's local establishments if you'd like to continue merriment.
