A wedding in a big undertaking & we're lucky to have our friends and family along.
Sarah Groff-Palermo grew up a beach rat in Southern California with her mother and some great big dogs. She has lived in New York and San Francisco, and is currently pursuing her masters at NYU Poly.
Westley Hennigh was born in Missouri, grew up in Colorado with his family, and has since lived in Seattle, San Francisco, and New York. He works as a software engineer and moonlights as a journalism student.
Anna Armentrout and Sarah met swimming for Red Tide. They were roommates at every nationals they both atteneded.
Oliver and Wes have been brothers for more than 20 years. They've also roomed together, if sometimes grudgingly ;)
Also a Red Tider, Spencer Neyland will be officiating the ceremony.

We love this town and we hope you will, too.
October is a great time to come to New York. The weather is temperate, with an average high of 65 and low of 50, which means it is the ideal time of the year to extend your trip and enjoy the city. With luck, the leaves will be turning and a side-trip to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden is a great way to bask in autumn. The wedding weekend will also be Open House New York, an event in which historic structures are opened to the public. Keep an eye out and grab tickets for a Sunday adventure. Or ask us for other suggestions!
The venue is 61 Local, in Boerum Hill right around the corner from the Bergen F/G stop. We recommend looking for a place nearby, since it will be much cheaper than Manhattan. Options include the Mariott Brooklyn Bridge and the absolutely adorable Nu Hotel, but AirBnb may be the best option. Neighborhoods to target include: Boerum Hill, Brooklyn Heights, Downtown Brooklyn, Cobble Hill, Carroll Gardens, and, if you feel adventurous, Gowanus and Fort Greene. Please email us if you have any questions about locations.
Flying into JFK will make getting to Brooklyn easier than flying into Newark (EWR) or LaGuardia (LGA). From there you can take the AirTrain to the subway or grab a taxi. We do not recommend renting a car.
For all of your questions, concerns, complaints & congratualations
We are so happy that you’ll be able to join us for our wedding. As many of you know, our tiny apartment is already filled with all the things we could ever need to make it a home. While the presence of your company is the only gift we could ever ask for, a honeymoon registry has been set up for those who have expressed an interest in offering a gift to mark the occasion.
You've made it to the form at the bottom!
Please let us know by August 15th if you can come. Also, if you'd like to give a toast, the floor will be open to all.
