We are married!

Thank you to everyone who celebrated with us last night!

We are overwhelmed by your love and generosity, and full of paper cuts from the cards and leftovers from our 2 a.m. trip to Little Pete’s diner.

Shout-out two friends who partied a little too hard:

Melissa Barrett (bridesmaid), 11:28 a.m. July 26: “My snapchat story from when Mariah    came on looks like the Blair Witch project.” (In case you missed it, DJ Shawn Ryan played this for us last night to celebrate Christmas in July)

Chris Stover (Temple News friend), 11:50 a.m. July 26: “I want to chop my head off.”

We hope our traveling guests made it home safely. Stay tuned for a few more updates and photos. Lots of Instagram photos are already available for your enjoyment.

Love, Shannon and Chris

What to do during your weekend in Philly!

We’re excited that many of you are coming to Philadelphia from afar for our wedding, so we wanted to make sure you make the most of it. You may have your own plans, so just consider this an example itinerary if you wanted to walk and explore the Rittenhouse neighborhood of Center City Philadelphia, where our wedding venue and hotel are located. For those of you who are from Philadelphia (or who have been here before), just consider this a list of some of our favorite things to do!

And remember to use #mcwink15 while you’re sharing fun things you’re doing during the weekend!

Everything listed below is within walking distance, but if you have plans to see other landmarks, Philly is easy to get around by SEPTA, Uber, Lyft, cab, walking and biking. We recommend the newly launched Indego Bike Share. See here.

Otherwise, see an itinerary below.
