Since parking is a REALLY tight at the reception venue and in the surrounding neighborhood, we would like to encourage folks to be both eco-friendly and friendly-friendly by carpooling from the ceremony venue to the reception venue by creating a nifty google form.
Please use this form to declare if you have space in your car to give someone a lift and let us know if you would be open to getting a ride from fellow guest. If you're open to both options, feel free to put yourself down for both and we can sort out plans from there.
If possible, please submit by Friday, 7/20 at 8PM so that we have time to connect people. Feel free to submit after that point, we just can't guarantee there will be folks minding the shop to make matches but certainly feel free to check in with the Groomsman as you are getting seated and we can do our best to connect people and make introductions on the spot.

Parking lots: Other than the three spots that will be reserved for accessible parking in the churchyard in front of the Sanctuary, there is limited parking available there. This is also the entrance with disability access ramps. There is also a lower parking area on Walnut Street that will be used by the caterer custodian and may need to be set aside for the wedding party. If space permits, there may be a spot there.
Additional on street parking along Warren and Walnut Street and as far down as Chestnut Street. You may also park in the cul de sac of the Lincoln School (19 Kennard Rd, Brookline, MA) and we have been told that the spots marked "Faculty Parking Only" are fair game over the weekend.
If you really find yourself in dire straights regarding parking, drive down Warren Street towards the Reservoir. It is a bit of (lovely and scenic) walk and there is additional street parking available.
