Modernly Wed likes us!

Because Ingrid is beautiful, talented, and worked so hard, our wedding was spectacular. We already knew this, but it’s so great to get affirmation from the folks at Modernly Wed, who gave us a lovely writeup!

It’s Done! And there are photos!

On October 27th, with the help of dozens of our friends and family, we go married!

To celebrate, we drove across southwest Colorado. Click below to see all the photos.

Wedding Blessings

You have arrived here because you want Ingrid and Gunnar to arrive "there". "There" being a place and existence of thoughtful kindness, mutual respect, and love, which you imagine for them both.

This is where you can offer them advice, well-wishes, and admonitions. We're going to read some of these during the ceremony.

Which hotels do you like?

Hello! We’re arranging blocks of hotels for guests from out of town – and there are quite a few of you. There are a lot of great options, and we can’t seem to make up our mind… so we’re letting you choose!

If you have any that really grab you, please let us know in the comments at the bottom of the page. If you found a place we haven’t mentioned, throw that in the comments, too!

Downtown

These will all be about 20 minutes from the venue. We’re arranging transportation, so don’t worry about that.

  • Stephen F Austin Intercontinental. Right by the Capitol on Congress, plenty of restaurants and shops nearby. The bar is very nice.
  • The Driskill. A piece of classic Austin. LBJ used to hang out here. If you like cow skin and taxidermy, this is your joint. The rooms are smaller, but it’s right on 6th Street, or “the Dirty 6th”.
  • Marriott Courtyard Downtown. This is where Gunnar stayed when he came to Austin before Ingrid. It’s just off 6th Street, by the Convention Center.
  • Four Seasons. Upscale and crazy, but you can see the bats emerge from Congress Bridge.
  • W Austin. Gunnar keeps trying to get a drink in this bar. This is where the bands stay when they’re playing Austin City Limits, which is right next door. It’s in the 2nd Street neighborhood, which is where Gunnar and Ingrid spend a lot of time.
  • Austin Hyatt. Right across the river from downtown, great base camp for the South Congress retail strip. Superfun pool.
  • Hotel San Jose. Holy crap, this is a great hotel. Ingrid and Gunnar love it, but there is no way we’re getting a block here.
