So who are you anyway? - Well, we’re John (20) and Jenn (20.) We currently live on Long Island in New York. He’s into cooking and playing guitar, while I take photos and read books. We both have dark hair - his curly, mine straight. He’s tan, and I’m pale. His family is huge, and mine... not so much. We like snuggling, wandering around town, going on adventures, and making food. He makes the meals, while I like getting out the box mixes of cupcakes. Our friends are a bunch of nerds and oddballs, and we love them. We spend a lot of time watching them play games, like Blazblue, Street Fighter, and Call of Duty. There are tons of trips to the Taco Bell in the next town over.

How’d you meet? - In high school, and sort of through a mutual friend. Go here for the long version.

How long have you been together? - We got together on July 27, 2007, so it’s been over three years.

When’d you get engaged? - December 29, 2009. Yeah, it’s going to be a long engagement. We’re aware of that.

When and where is the wedding? - It’s most likely going to be on either September or October 27, 2012. The ceremony will take place in a park, while the location of reception remains unknown for now.

Aren’t you guys a little young to be getting married? - Maybe, maybe not. We’ve been together for a long time, and we still love each other. Why wouldn’t we want to have celebration about it? We’re really happy to take this step, and eventually get a home together.

Hey, why aren’t you [insert typical wedding event/attire/etc.]? - We don’t find it necessary to go along with certain things just because they are traditional to everyone else. If they aren’t going to make us happy, or are only going to cause extra stress, why bother? We aren’t religious, so having a ceremony involving someone from any religion isn’t going mean anything to us. By having a good friend marry us, it’s so much more special. Jenn will have a bridesman because he’s an awesome friend that she’s known for years, and wants him on her side. The wedding party is not going to match because letting each person choose their outfit lowers the stress level for all involved, as well as makes future photos more interesting and fun to see. We will probably walk down the aisle together. It will flow with the rest of the pairs of bridesmaids and groomsmen. Our song, “Holland, 1945 by Neutral Milk Hotel, is much more meaningful to us than the typical wedding march. Yes, it is not a love song. It mentions a girl being “buried alive, one evening, 1945.” When we listened to that, ages ago, it was one of first moments where we connected, regardless of what the song is about.

Can I bring [insert name here]? - Probably not. As much as we would like everyone to be there, we have a limited budget and can only feed a certain amount of people.

Why are you having a game room at the reception? - Not everyone likes to dance (the bride included.) By having another option, we’re hoping more people can enjoy themselves.

Is there anywhere we can leave our kids? - Ideally, we’d like to have a kids room, where there will be things like a television, easier board games, kiddie video games, colouring books, and crayons. That is our idea right now, but we'll update with what we're definitely doing.

Will there be alcohol? - Most likely. Please be responsible and know your limits :)

What are the available non-alcoholic drinks? - We're hoping for coffee, tea, sodas, juices, lemonade, ice tea, and water.

What kinds of food will be there? - The buffet will hopefully include: salad, soup, beans, rice, sushi, tempura, steak, shrimp, grilled chicken, pulled pork, mashed potatoes, and macaroni and cheese. For the kids, there will also be pizza, grilled cheese, hot dogs, and chicken nuggets. Dessert will include: eclairs, fruit salad, ice cream, cheesecake, and jello. Besides that, there will be the cake. The snacks later on are a surprise.

Random, but what's up with the rocks icon? - That's Cancer Rock and Prima, his girlfriend. John found Cancer Rock at Nassau with Tom, and I'm not really sure where I found Prima, my pebble. At the moment, Prima's whereabouts are sadly unknown.

I have another question that isn’t listed here. How can I ask you? - Just go to the bottom of the page, and comment us. Please include your name. If that bothers you for one reason or another, just email us. Thanks.
