Abigail West & Michael Ross
Beloved wedding guests, at this time we plan to go forward with our wedding this November of 2020. That being said, we put the health and safety of you and your families above the importance of gathering together. If you feel unsafe, uncomfortable, or at all unwell, we ask that you please do not attend the wedding. This is hard for us to say because we want so much to be able to have a great big party with all the people we love, but we know it is for the best. Inevitably, some of you won't be able to make it due to the coronavirus pandemic.
As for precautions for guests in attendance, we will make final decisions as we get closer to the wedding date. The ceremony and reception/party afterwards will both be held outdoors with lots of space for people to spread out. We plan to implement social distancing measures for those who are particularly at risk and/or concerned, as well as allow these individuals to be served food and drink first.
We will keep everyone updated with any changes. Please do not hesitate to reach out to the bride and groom if you have any questions or concerns.

Getting to Bonnet Bluff
Our wedding will be held at Abigail's childhood home in North-Central Florida, fondly known as Bonnet Bluff. The house was built 35 years ago by Abigail's father, Chris West, and sits overlooking the Santa Fe River of Life, surrounded by live oaks draped in Spanish moss and cyprus trees flanked by their mysterious knees.
Getting there by Air
Bonnet Bluff is 1 hour 15 minutes from Jacksonville International Airport (JAX). It is 35 minutes from the smaller Gainesville Regional Airport (GNV).
Written directions coming soon.

We also have 13 acres of property that guests are welcome to camp on. Please contact the bride and groom if you plan to camp.
