What about COVID?

Please fill out this form prior to the wedding! https://forms.gle/ZYqn9GVq3paWRzUc6

We will be monitoring the situation closely and will make adjustments accordingly. All state regulations will be followed.

As of 4/2/2021, NY states:
"All attendees must have proof of recent negative test result or proof of immunization prior to the event." This means a negative PCR test within 72 hours of the event or fully vaccinated (two weeks after final dose). We will provide more information as we receive it.

In addition, masks are required whenever a guest is not sitting down, and tables will be spaced according to regulations.

Keep an eye on our website for updates and more information as we get closer to the date!

How do I watch the recording?

We have commissioned a special professional recording of the ceremony for those who we cannot celebrate with in person because of restrictions due to COVID-19. We wish we could celebrate with everyone in person, but hopefully we can in the future!

We will link to the recording on this website on the night of May 9, 2021!

Where is the after party?

Please join us outside after the wedding at 36 Cliff Avenue, Greenwich, CT 06830. We will be providing drinks and snacks! :)

Is There A Dress Code?

Black tie preferred. All events will be held on-premises. Ceremony taking place inside or outside will be dependent on weather!

What happened to the November date?

Due to concerns about the COVID pandemic, and to ensure the well being of our loved ones, we decided to cancel our wedding on 11/14/2020. Our wedding on 5/8/2021 will be a much more intimate ceremony and reception.

Can I bring a date?

Out of necessity, we are having a more intimate party, and so our wedding is strictly RSVP only. We will only able to accommodate those listed on your invitation. If you are unsure, please contact us directly.

Are my children invited?

We will only able to accommodate those listed on your invitation. If you are unsure, please contact us directly.

I Have A Food Allergy, Can I Make A Special Request?

Yes! Please let us know of any dietary needs, including allergies, vegetarian, or vegan, when you RSVP. We will try our best to accommodate!

Is there a hashtag I can use?

Yes! Please use #HerbsterEverAfter or #HappilyEverHerbster and tag us in your party photos! :)
