The Proposal

After four days of trying to keep a ring box concealed from Reynolds (and the TSA) while on vacation in Hawaii, we woke up at 3AM to see the sunrise on the 10,000 ft peak of Haleakala. John set up his newly acquired tripod to take some selfies (in retrospect, a dead giveaway of what was to come) and popped the question. Word of caution to any future Haleakala visitors: the mountain top is a solid 40-50 degrees colder than the beaches of Maui - so cold, in fact, a ring can nearly slip off one's finger!

Your presence at our wedding is the greatest gift we could ask for. However, if you would like to contribute to our special day, we have selected items to complete our home.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will there be a wedding registry?

You can shop directly from our registry at the following link: https://www.zola.com/registry/reynoldsandjohn. We're incredibly grateful for your support and can't wait to celebrate this special day with you.

Are children invited?

We absolutely love kids, but we want our wedding night to be your night (or weekend) off. If there are any questions, please refer to your invitation or reach out to us directly. Also, please let us know if you would like to be connected with a local babysitter.

Will the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception take place indoors or outdoors?

Our ceremony will be held outdoors at Riverbend Estate, followed by an outdoor cocktail hour. Later, join us for a tented reception at Whistling Straits. In the event of inclement weather, there is a backup ceremony site. This website will contain up-to-date details should the venue change.

What should I expect after the ceremony?

The cocktail hour at Riverbend Estate follows the ceremony, and transportation will be provided from 5:45 pm onwards, taking guests from Riverbend Estate to Whistling Straits for the reception. Due to its location on the shore of Lake Michigan, Whistling Straits can experience cool temperatures during June evenings. It is recommended that women bring a wrap for added comfort.

Will transportation be provided for the weekend?

Transportation will be provided for guests from Riverbend Estate to Whistling Straits, and from there to the afterparty, with a return shuttle to Kohler. Guests staying at the American Club and Inn at Woodlake will enjoy complimentary shuttles between Kohler properties, restaurants, gym, and spa.

What should I wear for black tie?

Men are requested to wear a tuxedo and women to wear a formal (floor length) evening gown or dressy cocktail dress.

What should I wear for praire chic?

Prairie chic is all about capturing a rustic, romantic, and effortless style. Opt for natural and muted colors inspired by the prairie like earthy and pastel tones. Choose lightweight and breathable fabrics like cotton and linen and embrace patterns and textures that evoke a rustic or prairie-inspired feel. Floral prints, gingham checks, plaid, and lace are all excellent choices.
