About Christine

Where We're From: Christine is from Northern Virginia and Scott grew up in New York but moved to the DC area after graduating college.

Marital Status: Happily married since 2005! We met on the basketball court during Orientation Week at Carnegie Mellon.

Day Career: We're both happily IT consultants at separate prestigious firms specializing in IT Strategy and Management consulting. We are geeks in suits. :O)

More About Us: We had so much fun planning our own wedding in 2004 that we continued to help other friends who were seeking advice and quick tips. It seemed that when we did it the first time, it took so much time because we had no idea what we were doing. Noticing lots of patterns, we built up helpful ideas that can be reused at any wedding. We also collected helpful material from other brides and thought what better way to help more people than to create an environment where people can share and leverage past experiences. So we put together an idea to do just that.
