A tale as old as time... boy meets girl... boy is the chosen one. Girl is unimpressed. Boy fights dragon., Girl falls for useless ginger. Boy stuck falling for ginger because regardless of how well the characters were written, boy didn't really have a decent alternate option and boy and girl are both forced into relationships with soulless people. Enough about Harry Potter...
Our tale goes a bit differently. Below is an abridged timeline of our relationship unless you are on your mobile device, to which you will need to use a computer to enjoy "us" and a lot of other things. Thanks a lot, Wix!
APRIL - MAY 2008
CHOSEN BOY MEETS CHOSEN GIRL
Meghan and Travis meet via myspace.com. Meghan is looking for a networking opportunity, and Travis is lonely and stalking much younger women in the Rockville area. His opening line to Meghan is “Has anyone told you that you’re clinically insane?” It was original, so she responded. After many hilarious/textual tennis email exchanges they meet at a Starbucks.
In advance of this meeting, Meghan does her due diligence through familywatchdog.us and Google to confirm that Travis is not a sexual predator. However, through her research, she discovers that he is 12 years her senior and a divorced dad.
After their meeting, Travis immediately tries to convince Meghan to go on a date with him, to which she responds “you’re too old” or various other reasons they shouldn't. This continues until he eventually wears her down. It doesn't hurt that they have already become best friends - and they have more fun spending time with one another than either of the people they are actually dating.
MEET THE GRIFFINDORKS
After all this time...
MEGHAN KOTLANGER & TRAVIS GRIFFIN
Are finally making the unbreakable vow.
27 October 2018
WITCHES AND WIZARDS:
We recommend aperating or the Floo Network (yes, Chase Court has a connection point).
We don’t recommend using a Port Key since you’re in a city, and landing might pose bodily
harm to you or surrounding muggles.
MUGGLES (NON MAGIC FOLK):
Since this is a city, there are various methods of transportation including planes, trains, and automobiles. The map on the right will magically link you to where you want to go.
We would give you explicit instructions, but we all know you are going to use your GPS anyway, so just type this address into your GPS, and you will find your way:
18 East Chase Street
Baltimore, MD 21202
DO NOT USE THE DEFAULT GPS ADDRESS
PARKING - information can be found here:
When you arrive, there is a small iron gate to the left of a church and there will also be a mistress of magic greeting people. Enter there to exit the muggle world and join in the celebration.
Since both the ceremony and reception are both in the same location, we will not be providing transportation to and from the hotel (which is very close as you'll learn below). There is ample parking in the area according to the Chase Court website, but if you want to imbibe in Hagrid's favorite firewhiskey, please consider walking or Uber.
27 October 2018

Please use this space to add any comments, Harry Potter love, or hilarious or embarrassing stories about us or yourselves.
If you have any questions or concerns, you can reach us via owl post, but if you don't have an owl, use this contact form:
We are honored that you are joining us for our special ceremony commemorating the combining of the Ravenclaw and Gryffindor houses. Your attendance is our gift, but if you feel compelled to gift more...
