Covid Considerations for the Event

All guests will choose stickers/tables as they enter to signify their comfortability with covid concerns. Cocktail hour is on the patio. Dinner will be served by catering staff, not self-serve.  Tables inside will have less seats to allow for better spacing of guests. Please use the hand sanitizer as you check-in to the event and at the photo booth. Please be considerate of social distancing. Masks are not mandated but are encouraged/permitted unless eating, as this is an indoor event.
