Your support and love is the greatest gift, but if you'd like to give us a gift, we're very grateful! In lieu of a physical gift registry, we're supporting Foster Parrots (a exotic bird sanctuary in Rhode Island that takes in, fosters, and adopts out all sorts of feathered friends). We've also set up a honeymoon registry for our trip to Rio de Janeiro in September.
Foster Parrots Ltd:
We visited their sactuary and grounds, and can vouch for the incredible work this non-profit is doing. They have larger cages for big or paired parrots, and smaller aviaries for larger flocks of birds, like cockatiels. Their volunteers truly care about the well being of the birds, and often foster the birds most in need of a quiet place to recover due to abuse or malnutrition. Daniela donates to Foster Parrots every year in memory of her best buddy, Cricket (pictured right).

Lodging & Logistics
The venue, Avon Gardens, is a 25 minute drive from Indianapolis International Airport and a 30 minute drive from the heart of downtown Indianapolis. Indianapolis doesn't have a lot of public transit options, and most people rely on cars to get around. So, if you're looking to fly in on Friday and stay until Sunday morning, it would probably be easiest to rent a car (car sharing/rental spreadsheet below). Traffic usually isn't an issue, but I'd add 10 minutes to any drive to deal with constant construction everywhere.
(We are currently trying to negotiate a hotel room block, stay tuned)
Here are some hotel options that within a 10-15 minute drive of the reception venue, close to the airport:

THINGS TO DO OVER THE WEEKEND:
If you're flying in early on Friday, looking for fun Saturday morning/afternoon, or staying later on Sunday, here are some of our favorite things to do in Indy:
Explore Circle Center & the Monument
Walk down Mass Ave in Downtown
Newfields Art Museum
White River Gardens
The Indianapolis Zoo
Lots of War Memorials
Indy Motor Speedway
Sun King Brewery (on College Ave in East Downtown)
SWIMMING RELATED INFO:
Sadly, there aren't any open water spots anyone is legally allowed to swim/train in like we're used to. The IUPUI Natatorium and the Baxter YMCA are two spots you can enter with a day pass that have lap swimming. If anyone needs a guest pass to the YMCA, please reach out to Daniela.
