A bit about gifts -
Your presence at our celebration is truly your gift to us. Many of you are coming from far off places, and many of you have helped us in big ways with the wedding. We are grateful for this! Please know that we do not expect additional gifts.
However, since gift-giving is a beautiful tradition and people have inquired, we know you may be looking for ideas. To facilitate this, we have registered at the stores below and there are good ideas within. Since we just bought a new old home, gift certificates for everything from the Home Depot to Smith & Hawken will be put to excellent use. We would also welcome gifts of airline miles, since we are hoping to do a travel-honeymoon sometime next year.
And - you all have great taste, so gifts from the heart and surprises are most welcome.
Please note that if you do wish to give a gift, we strongly request that you have it shipped to our home, since it will not be possible for us to tote gifts back on the plane.
Sur La Table
As an alternative to a traditional gift, we invite you to make a donation to our church, Glide Memorial Church in San Francisco. This is an outreach congregation doing progressive work in the Tenderloin in San Francisco (and they've got the best music in town on Sunday morning!)
Gifts may be sent to Elyse and Jeremy
at their San Francisco home:
