The hitchin' party is full go!

You heard right, We're getting Married

 
 

From the early days of our relationship, we have laughed at the funny ways love manifested in our lives. Not cinematic love or novel love, but rather real love. Good Love.

As we grew together we started pointing out these lighthearted demonstrations of good love to each other, partly as a joke. These jokes became an easy source of joy, but also an everyday way to show love. Our routines, vacations and inside jokes all became simple ways to show love. Love is surprise ice cream.

Love is bad day brownies

When we got engaged, we were on a four hour train ride from London to Edinburgh. We were late to the station and thought we were going to miss our train. But, then it was canceled. It was confusing and way too early and it all worked out just fine. We took it as microcosm for our future. It's a wild ride and now we're on it together. Love is a wild ride we're all on together.  It won't be simple, calm or predictable. But really, what good story is?

We like to be outside. We have registered for some outdoor equipment because our relationship grew among the trees and peaks of the Pacific Northwest. There are a few things here to make that a bit more comfortable.

Book Hotels here and now

 
 

Ok the short of the story is Hood River is a tourist town and it's hiiiigh tourist season. This means a few things for you all. First, if you find yourself in the line at Pfriem Family Brewers, earn instant river cred by finding the crusty kiteboarder and saying, "Psshh tourists, huh?"

But also the hotels book really really fast. Same with cars out of PDX. So, book now or prepare to bunk up. Or, both! Bullet points with more information:

  • It is high tourist season so please book rental cars and accommodations ASAP. 

  • Because it is high tourist season, certain hotels may not allow Saturday-only reservations so please keep this in mind when deciding where to stay Friday and Saturday nights.

  • We’ve listed some options below but may be worth looking at VRBO and Airbnb too.

  • You will likely be able to find more affordable accommodation outside of downtown Hood River.  Consider looking in Cascade Locks or The Dalles. There is also camping nearby, if that is your jam!

  • We will have a bus to transport folks to the wedding venue and can try to coordinate pick ups depending on where most folks stay. There will for sure be a pick up from Hood River.

  • Ask for a AAA discount! Drop Christina's name, maybe it'll work! Maybe not.
