We've reserved hotel blocks under the name "Riker-DeFlumeri" at the following places:
The above "Book Here" links should work, but if they don't, just call the hotel and mention the dates and the room block.
If you don't like these, you can check out the page Chris stares at every. single. day.
Another option might be AirBnB, if you don't mind AirBnb!
On a cold, drizzly, typical New England night in late March, Chris made his way to Harvard Square to meet Katie after he messaged her online. Meeting up at Grafton Street, they discovered it was closed, and rather than end the date right then and there, Katie suggested Russell House Tavern.
After a short, awkward, rainy walk, Russell House was closed for a private event for a bunch of Harvard kids. Perservering despite obvious signs that this date was going to be a disaster, they finally arrived at John Harvard's, where they enjoyed a few drinks and Chris talked too much. Luckily, Katie decided that he was worth a second date, and they ended up being a great match!
A year or so later, they decided to buy a condo in Somerville, because have you tried to rent property in Greater Boston? Jesus. Anyway, they spent a whole summer fixing it up, and now they live there with their cat, Zelda.
Q: What should I wear?
A: Cocktail Attire! We want you to look good and feel good, so men, don't come in your uncle's old plaid sport coat, and ladies you probably know what to do. You don't have to break the bank and shell out for something like a tux or this though. The ceremony is outdoors, but the rest of the evening is inside.
Wear any color you like (except for white - Katie is wearing that).
Q: How do I get to the ceremony?
Q: How do I get to Café ArtScience?
Q: Should I bring my kids?
A: Our wedding is not kid-friendly, sorry about that!
Q: What am I going to do the rest of the weekend?
Q: Are you going to be providing dinner? Booze? Dancing?
A: Yes to all of the above! Chow down from our family-style menu, grab a drink at the bar, and get ready to cut a rug.
Q: Is there an afterparty?
A: Probably not a formal one! But who knows? Boston is, after all, legendary for its nightlife.
Q: Who else is going to the wedding?
A: If you'd like a curated list of people that you may/may not know who are invited to our wedding, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll be in touch. (A lot of people want this for lodging/travel planning purposes, we're trying to short circuit awkward "were you invited to the wedding!?" conversations!).
Q: I can't make it that day! What do I do?
A: While that is both a statement and a question, we'll take it. If you can't make it, please let us know by contacting us at email@example.com.
Q: Where can I sign up for updates about the wedding website?
A: You can't, because Chris doesn't want to setup that Node server again, so... just check back constantly.
Q: Wait, in the last question (↑) were you talking about a mailing list for the wedding or for the wedding website?
Q: What if we have other questions?
A: Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
