Check in for the hotel is at 3pm, however they said that everyone who is staying Saturday night only can check in early as the wedding starts at 3pm.  Either ask to check in early at the front desk when you arrive, or call ahead to let them know (203-849-9828).  Also the shuttle will be leaving the hotel to come to the wedding at 2pm and 2:30pm.  If you miss the shuttle just wait in the lobby and someone will come to pick you up.  (We will have a sign at the front desk with numbers to call if that happens)

As this is a casual wedding, we want you to be comfortable, so please feel free to wear what you like. The only people that are required to dress up are John and Chelsea

Ladies. Beware there is gravel and grass to contend with. Shoe yourselves accordingly. I know I am wearing flats, but John is still considering wearing heels…we’ll see

We have reserved a block of rooms at the Four Points by Sheraton in Norwalk, CT. I am sure that as the wedding is only a few weeks away, you have all booked your rooms. For those of you who have not, please do so soon as rooms are running short. And we are sad to say that they are no longer offering the reduced rate for the rooms.

Parking will be in the commuter lot at the corner of Wolfpit Road and Route 7 (Just north of Orem’s Diner). There will be a wedding shuttle to the Brooks Home. When you see our road and our driveway you will understand.

WE WANT YOUR REQUESTS!!!! Please email us the names of songs that you have to hear at a wedding. We’ll add them to our list. Don’t be shy we need something other than David Bowie…
