The bride and groom are requesting contributions towards funding their honey-moon, a week-long retreat at the Esalen Institute of Big Sur during the winter holidays of 2014-2015.
The bride and groom are also requesting contributions towards the purchase of a new, ergonomic and supportive mattress and bed which will allow them to more fully enjoy matrimonial happiness.
Please bring your gift to the wedding or if you prefer send a check to Cale Brandley at 10320 Old Dairy Place, Grass Valley, CA 95945.
We understand that some folks are more comfortable giving durable material goods. Or giving nothing at all. Since we already have most everything we really need, that is fine! To help you make your choices, we have registered with an on-line gift registry. Here is a link:
It should work just like a 'regular' gift registry, where you can let people see what you're choosing to do! Hopefully, you'll be able to support your local/regional economy by finding unique gifts made by an artisan near you.
Other gifts wish list:
Fine pu-erh tea that is worthy of aging with the newly-weds
A peaceful place to retreat the evening after the wedding celebration
Finnish wool undershirts
Savings towards purchasing a cow and the land to graze her on, plus friends near by to help with milking and enjoying the milk.
Thanks for thinking of us!
