Back in the summer of 2016, we decided to play hooky from work. We met at Patreon, spent most of our time there, just as friendly coworkers. But on this particular day, we decided work could wait, so we ducked out and mobbed up to North Beach for oysters and cocktails. We spent the whole day talking, going from bar to bar, deciding that, yes, we did really like each other and wanted to do this more often. On our way back to bart, we stopped and kissed in front of the iconic Columbus Tower. After that, the deal was pretty much sealed. Just a couple travel-filled years later we welcomed our little bug James into the world. We’ve been a family for a few years now, and we’re excited to get this rubber stamp, make it offish, and celebrate with you all!

Where to Stay

The Holbrooke has very limited rooms so we made room assignments for our close family, groom/bridal parties, and a handful of close friends. We’re so bummed not everyone can stay with us at the Holbrooke, but there are tons of great places nearby! We haven’t set up blocks at these hotels so feel free to book on your own whenever you’d like. There’s also some fun Airbnbs in the area. You do you!
