Mostly because we’re idiots.
But also mostly because we wanted to celebrate with our friends and family. We don’t get to see most of ‘our people’ very often (con of nomadic living), so we thought it would be awesome to get everyone together and serve them a lot of beer on us.
“Casual-cocktail” attire would be smiled upon. Naked is not an option (sorry). Make sure you can dance. No, we don’t totally know what ‘casual cocktail means’. Just go with it.
There is ample parking at both the ceremony location, and the reception location. Three Heads Brewing (reception location) will allow you to leave your car parked in their lot overnight if you imbibe a bit too much. PLEASE don’t drink and drive.
In order to make the decision to not drink and drive even easier (it’s an easy decision you weiner), Jake & Liz will be providing Uber service (on them!) for anyone who wishes to use it to catch a safe ride back to their beds. You can pick up your car in the morning if you drove.
Yes! We’ll pay for your Uber ride from the brewery back to your bed so you can drink your fill and still get home safely. We’ll give you the code for said Uber ride at the reception.
Gotcha! Hahaha. We’re so funny.
Appetizers will be available at 3:30pm. Dinner will be served around 5:30pm.
We will be hosting a build your own Garbage Plate meal. If you haven’t had a Garbage Plate you have not lived.
Vegetarians will have non-meat item choices to create their own special plate. There will be options for those who are GF as well.
There will be beer. Endless beer. By Three Heads Brewing.
There will also be bottled soda and water available.
There should be (GF) cider on tap as well.
You do you, brah. Just help us out by:
We’re cool with you also not bringing your kids and getting buck-wild as adults too. Whatever sprinkles your cupcake.
The ceremony is on the upper level of Village Gate. The easiest way to get there is via the Goodman St entrance (to the right of the outside courtyard if looking at Village Gate from Goodman). Up the stairs and through the old doors and you’ll be at ‘the place.’
You can also enter through the courtyard. Head towards the set of non-restaurant glass doors on the opposite side of Salena’s Restaurant and Nox (good cocktails!), head down the short hallway, turn right, and head up the stairs.
Ricky Hesselbarth is, indeed, ordained. With the powers vested in him by the Church of the Internet, he is legally able to wed us.
Ricky has been one of Liz’s constants since their freshman year of college. He has been her life boat in rough seas and her clown when the world tries to get her down. He is a spiritual man, and both Jake and Liz are beyond themselves that he is willing to unite them in the eyes of the IRS, their friends, and family.
Jake and Liz are only friends with attractive people.
Conveniently, we keep a blog of all of our latest adventures. You can see where we’ve been and what we’ve been doing here: LifeWithDyna
I’m sorry you’re having an emergency. That sucks. If you need to contact us about said emergency (or just have a question on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday) feel free to call or text Kay Pfleghardt at (607) 972-5502 or Scott Baron at (585) 295-3574. Please don’t send nudes to those numbers. That’s weird.
Village Gate is tricky. Here is a detailed description of how to get to the place where Jake and Liz will say a bunch of mushy shit to each other before putting rings on each other’s fingers: HELP I’M LOST!
