Jimi and Ali met through their mutual friends, Seth and Austin, in January 2018. They immediately became close friends and went on frequent hikes at Clinton Lake. Ali officially asked Jimi to be her boyfriend that March. The two, and their cat, Mr. Kitty, moved into their apartment together in 2019 and adopted their dog Archer. Jimi proposed to Ali, the day after her birthday in Abilene, KS.
The Bridal Party
You are our favorite people and we are so excited to enjoy this day with each and everyone of you. Here is a preliminary order of events and what to expect:
6:30 PM - The Ceremony:
Jimi and Ali have decided to do a unique Unity Candle Ceremony. The couple wants to make sure all of their friends and family are included in the uniting of these two individuals. We ask that you please do not use your phones or cameras during the ceremony. Our photographers will be sure to capture the moment for us.
7:00 PM - Cocktail Hour & Yard Games Outside
The Cider Gallery offers a large outdoor grass area. This is the perfect time to enjoy the fall weather, grab some hard cider or beer and play a few games.
7:30 PM - Dinner & Toasts
Dinner will be served and drinks will be available for purchase. Expect toasts from the Bridal party. If you require any special dietary needs, please let us know on your RSVP.
8:15 PM - Cake Cutting & First Dance
Guess if the Bride of Groom will get cake smashed in their face. Then the traditional first dance, father-daughter dance and mother-son dance will take place.
9:00 PM - It's Time to Party!!
You know the drill. Show those moves on the dance floor.
11:30 PM - Send Off
Say your goodbyes and wish the couple well

If you've made it this far, join us for an after party at Mass Street Ale House (previously Quinton's, where the couple first met)
What to Wear - Semi-Formal/Cocktail attire.
The Venue - The Cider Gallery is in the Warehouse Arts District in East Lawrence. It was where Jimi and Ali had their first anniversary date. The venue hosts art gallery shows, so please be courteous of the art work in the space.
When To Arrive - The ceremony will start promptly at 6:30. Please arrive early to make sure you find a seat before we start.
Guest and Kids - We will only be able to accommodate those listed on your invitation. A plus 1 or children are welcome, if stated on your invitation.
Sharing Photos - Yes, please share your photos. After the ceremony is complete, we encourage you to use #OverDover #LetsLesher to share your pics.
We are honored you will share in our special day.
We're lucky to already have everything we need and are forgoing a traditional gift registry. Instead, please feel free to browse our Honeyfund, where you can contribute to our dream honeymoon or towards buying our first home!
Until We Say I Do
Out of town guests, there is a KU Football game the same day. Of course, we did not think this would be a problem...I mean...it's KU Football. Unfortunately, hotels are booking fast and we were unable to reserve a hotel block. We recommend looking at rooms on the west side of town, or checking out some AirBnB options if you plan to stay the night.
Cider Gallery has several parking lots and off-street parking available. All parking areas are marked in light purple on this map. Please use the front entrance located on Pennsylvania Street.
