Joshua Tree – a day this July

Ryan & Aly Get Married in the Desert

We're eloping, kids.

As much as we'd like to celebrate with all of our friends and family, we realize it's still a ways off till we can get people together to dance, hug, laugh, and generally breathe in each other's faces. Not to mention all the other lovely couples who have dibs. We promise we'll be back with a party, but for now, we're looking forward to making it official in an intimate ceremony this summer in Joshua Tree.

Looking to give to our wedding?

We don't need things right now, but other people do. Here are a few organizations we believe in (Aly also works for one) that we invite you to donate to if you're looking for a way to celebrate with us at this time.

Have a quarantine dance party to our wedding playlist.

Until we can hit the dance floor together in person, please enjoy our curated vibez remotely.

We're taking bets – how hot will it get?

Maybe we shouldn't have made this decision in the dead of an east coast winter when we're at our peak desperation to escape cold weather and a windy city, but here we are. Buying kiddie pools for the dogs, deciding how many pints of Jeni's ice cream to ship–it's all a part of what will make our day all the more memorable.

3 Others Guessed

    Stay tuned for post-pandemic ballyhoo.

    Pictures of dogs, life updates, any potential reception news. We'll be right back here.

    With love,
    Aly & Ryan
