We're Getting Married!

We are looking forward to a beautiful Summer wedding in Long Beach, CA aboard the Queen Mary. We are so excited to have you all share this special day with us.

We've put together this site for all of you to share these happy moments with us as we begin our new life together.

Our Story

Kevin and Amanda are a commercial waiting to happen! We met online two-and-a-half years ago, and our lives have been full of fun surprises and adventures ever since! From our first weekend getaway to Hearst Castle to the ultimate adventure of the Inca Trail in Peru, Kevin is always keeping Amanda on her toes.

The Engagement

After an arduous 4 day hike complete with wind, snow, heavy rain and over 12,000 granite steps Kevin and Amanda finally reached the last camp spot for the hike. They got some sleep for the next day and woke up to complete the final 3 mile trek before reaching the main entrance to Machu Picchu, known as the Sun Gate. Amanda had no idea Kevin had spent all week smuggling a diamond ring through LAX security, two third world airports and the entire Inca Trail to Machu Picchu.

After spending the morning exploring the ruins, Kevin proposed to Amanda next to the lone tree in the middle of the city.

Following the ceremony, a reception will be held in the beautifully restored Verandah Grill, located directly across from the Sun Deck Gazebo.

Gorgeous hand painted murals cover the walls of what used to be the first-class nightclub and restaurant. Doris Zinkesein’s famed, “Entertainment” mural is the centerpiece of this room, which recalls the fun frivolity of the theater. The room features a unique sunken dance floor as well as an opening onto the sun deck, where guests can enjoy the dramatic views and soft ocean breezes.
