Maggie & Sam are getting married!


Friday, September 29 – Evening
Instead of a sit-down dinner, we plan to take for family/out-of-towners on a picnic on a short, accessible hike and munch outside somewhere pretty. We’ll meet at 6 pm, location TBA.

Saturday, September 30 – Afternoon
Our wedding ceremony and reception will take place at Old City Park in Moab, exact time TBA. There will be music, dancing, and food. Wear something comfortable, or dress up if you want to. We’ll just be happy you came.

Sunday, October 1 – Morning
Brunch at our house (257 E. 100 North, Moab) at 10 a.m. for family/out-of-towners. Come hang out in our space and catch up before you go home or out on an adventure.


Please plan to RSVP by August 15 so we can make arrangements!


Getting here
Moab can be a pain in the ass to get to. If you are within a day’s drive (or longer if you like road trips), consider driving so that you have a car to get around.

Flying: Salt Lake City and Denver are the closest major airports: they are each ~ 5 hours from Moab and have car rentals. There are two small regional airports—Canyonlands Regional Airport and Grand Junction Regional Airport—that are very close, but depending on the fickle whims of airline pricing, these airports may add money or time to your trip. Worth playing around with different combinations!

By Rail: There is an Amtrak line from Denver or Salt Lake to Green River, Utah, 45 minutes from Moab.

Shuttle service: Moab Express can pick you up at the airport or at the Green River Amtrak station and take you to your hotel.

Getting around town: Once you’re here, if you are without a car there is Moab Area Transit, a free transit service that runs around town and works like an Uber. There are also multiple bike and e-bike rentals that are a lot of fun including Pedego Moab and Bike Fiend. Our wedding venue is bikeable from town.

Extending your trip:
Moab is a pretty fun place to be, and the weather will be nice around this time. If you want recommendations on what else to do, call Sam at 614-202-9965. He loves to talk about this sort of thing.


We have endeavored to book blocks of hotel rooms at some places that will allow you to walk around town:

Apache Motel
There is a block of discounted rooms at the Apache Motel, a few blocks from our house. Call and ask for a room reserved for the Newman-McGuire wedding. The Apache provides some bikes for their guests to get around.
(435) 355-0636

Moav Valley Inn
If that fills up, we’ve got another block of rooms at Moab Valley Inn, towards the south end of town. Ask for a room with the Newman-McGuire Wedding.
(435) 259-7141

If you want more space or to share a house with others, Moab has many overnight rentals. Rim Village is a condo development south of town with lots of room, and there are many others.

If you want to camp, we would suggest reserving a site through well ahead of time unless you’re self-contained, confident, or familiar with the area. Our wedding is taking place at a popular time of year, so many first-come-first-serve sites may be occupied. If there is interest, we can reserve a group site for many folks at once. Please indicate this on the Google RSVP form!


With so many people taking time out to travel to our wedding, we’re not putting together a registry — we’re grateful to you already! If you’re so moved, you can send us a contribution to our happy home by clicking here. <3. If you have a specific gift in mind, we’ll be happily surprised.
