Reception


Saturday, November 11, 2017

We invite you to come celebrate our marriage with us in Phoenix, Arizona.   Expect lots of food, drinks, and dancing.

Dress code is dressy casual: a slightly dressier version of your casual look. Guys don’t have to wear ties, but they can if they want to; ladies don’t have to wear heels but they can if they want to.

Children are welcome to attend.

Venue

The Club at Aviano
22500 North Aviano Way
Phoenix, AZ 85050

Schedule

5:00 – 6:00 Cocktail Hour
6:00 – 6:30 Wedding Ceremony Video

Food

Our family and friends are most important to us, but food is a close second. At the reception, we’ll have a few food trucks and lots of passed appetizers. If you have any allergies, please order directly from the trucks to reduce the chance of cross-contamination.

Photos

We would love to collect everyone’s photos from this weekend!  To help with this, we created a shared photo album.  View photos and contribute to the album at ruthandwilliam.com/partyphotos
