On Friday, October 17th, 2014 at 6:00 PM Alexis Minsloff and Chris Psaros will marry in a ceremony at the historic Rengstorff House in Mountain View, California, followed immediately by an evening reception on the grounds that will conclude at around 11 PM.

If you are reading this, it is most likely because you have received an invitation, an email, or both, with a link to this site. Welcome, and we hope that you can join us.

Arrival

The ceremony is scheduled to begin at 6:00 PM. Your drive to the House will coincide with Friday evening rush-hour traffic, so please plan accordingly. Feel free to arrive any time after 5:30 to be seated for the ceremony by 6.

The Venue

The Rengstorff House sits on the North Shore of Mountain View at the foot of San Francisco Bay, just past the Shoreline Ampitheatre and the "Googleplex" (world headquarters of Google Inc.). Mountain View is centrally-located in Silicon Valley, approximately 45 minutes south of San Francisco/20 minutes northwest of San Jose. Parking at the House is plentiful.

The Style

Quail and Thistle"Victorian Tea Party" is the (loose) theme of our wedding. We chose the "R-house" for its beauty and charm as a time capsule of the 19th century. Dinner will be served by The Quail and Thistle Tea Room, offering a classic "high tea"-style menu.

The wedding is not a costume party, though if you've ever had the urge to wear your 1800s best, tonight would be the occasion! And with the exception of the groom (who is excited to be going "white tie"), this is not a formal event. Wear what makes you comfortable.

A word of caution: mid-October is a roulette spin for San Francisco Bay Area weather. Expect anything from cool and misty to dry and warm. The house will be open, but since the reception will take place primarily outside after sundown, we recommend that you bet on the side of warmer attire.

Please do not feel compelled to bring a gift. Your presence is what's important.

Where And When Is The Honeymoon?

Since Lexy's first visit to England in 2008, and Chris's momentary stop-over in 2001, we've been looking for an excuse to return. Late last year, the excuse found us: In 2015, Back to the Future The Musical will debut on London's West End. For two fans of both England and the BTTF movies, this news easily settled the question of where to go on our honeymoon!

I Never Got A “Save-The-Date”!

Apologies if you fall into this group. We went with an e-mail save-the-date, which was sent out on April 20th and may have been caught in your SPAM filter or anti-virus scanner.

(If you missed the save-the-date, click the image, especially if you've ever wondered what Lexy and Chris might look like if they'd been pulled into a 1980s arcade game.)
