Rock & Shell Contributors
This page is FINALLY up to date with everything we’ve received through August 21, 2012. Because of the massive amount of time it takes to put together the booklets for the program, they’ve gone to press (it has taken an average of two to three weeks to put together each chapbook piece that has been associated with this wedding). If you’d still like to contribute, please do! It’ll go up on this site, and I may have time to do an additional insert. You can see our collection to date here: http://journeytothecenteroftheearthwedding.com/rock-shell-contributors/
