Welcome back to camp! Ohana means family, which is what you are to us. We chose this beautiful camp in Vermont because we wanted to spend as much
time as we could with those we love on this special occasion. Ohana has enough cabins and posh tents to
Every wedding guest is invited to all three days of camp, all banquets, and all events. That means you can join us for three days of boating in the lake, roasting marshmallows by the fire, dancing in the hall, hiking in the woods, playing games on the lawn, singing songs, talking to old friends, meeting new ones, eating cheese, drinking wine, and getting married. Of course, not everyone has the flexibility to take that whole time, but we appreciate every minute you can spend with us.

Accommodations at Ohana
For that authentic summer camp feel, Ohana has enough rustic cabins (86 beds) and cabin tents (24 beds) to accommodate all guests. All activities and celebrations will be within walking distance all weekend!
||3 nights||2 nights|
The cabins have between one and four bedrooms each. It is our job to communicate room assignments to Ohana. We will do our best to accomodate everyone's needs and preferences so that all campers have a great time.
Ohana is a real summer camp. Once we leave, the campers will be there all summer. There is lots too do! Besides our scheduled events, the lakefront, game room, outdoor games, sporting areas, and woods provide plenty to do.

We love stuff -- maybe too much. Our small apartment is already packed to the brim with strange and wonderful gadgets. Consequently, we haven't set up a traditional wedding registry.
Instead of formal gifts, we are hoping for the gift of your eager participation! Taking the time, money, and energy to come and celebrate with us for two or three days is really a huge gift, and one we will not take for granted.
If you feel the desire to contribute beyond this, here is a short list of things that would be very helpful.
- Be a camp counselor for a couple hours: organize an activity!
- Coordinate and share rides up to Ohana. We really appreciate people carpooling to make our wedding more environmentally friendly and keep camp from becomming a parking lot. Help with the ride-board or volunteer to drive a shuttle.
- Help out with things like moving chairs, cleaning up, and decorating.
- Have an eye for decoration? We could use help with decorating the main hall (pictured above) for Saturday dinner. Get in touch!
- Play an instrument? Share a song around the campfire.
- Have yard games or board games to share? Bring them!
- We have a DIY approach (see e.g. this website), so if you have special skill that might help us out, we would love to hear about it. (Anyone brew beer?)
- We are thinking of doing a campfire dinner on Thursday and would like help cooking.
- Share your photos! Diane Shao has kindly set up a photo upload server for us.
- Have a nice camera and decent eye? We are looking for amateur photographers to take candid photos on Thursday and Friday. Get in touch and we'll figure out a short shift. (Participation is more important than photography, so shifts shouldn't be more than an hour.)
- Make a contribution to our honey-moon.
Early summer in Vermont can be cool to warm. Bring layers for the evening, which can be chilly. Bring a swim suit if you think you might like to swim (the water will be on the chilly side, but not prohibitively.) Don't forget sunscreen and bug spray. (Early Summer in New England can be buggy.)
Friday Night Dance
The dress guideline for Friday night is classy picnic. Dress nicely but in clothes appropriate to being outside on grass and inside dancing. (Robin wrote this, someone who understands clothes will improve it.)
Saturday Night Banquet
The dress code for Saturday night is fancy-as-you-like-without-spending-more-money-unless-you-really-like-to. The main requirement is that everyone be attractive and the guest list has already been pre-screened for this. (Robin also wrote this.)
RSVP's are only online. Please RSVP as soon as possible. To RSVP, click the three links below to (1) reply to us, (2) book accommodation with the camp, (3) register for shuttle or carpool (optional).
Robin has run out of things to say, but likes how Angela looks in these pictures :)
This was taken at Cambridge Common, our old college haunt.
This is us running at Middlesex Fells. Angela has run a Marathon. Robin has not.
Robin is very lucky. This is at Jessica and Brent's wedding.
In Alaska (with Jon and Christine). Margerie Glacier is one of the few tide-water glaciers in North America. It forms in the snowfields of Mount Root at 12,860 feet and flows 21 mile down to the sea. While we were standing there, you could hear huge chunks of ice calving off the glacier.
Here is a look at our invitation making process. Each one is (unintentionally) a little different.
