We're Getting married.

Saturday September 9, 2017   //   Lincoln, Nebraska

After surviving a year on the road together in a teeny tiny trailer, we decided it's time to make this relationship official!

Surprises are fun, but less so when you're trying to get a head count on food and planetarium shows.  Bottom line: Don't pull a Dan on this one (wink).


CEREMONY + RECEPTION

We're getting married at a place that's so special to us: Nebraska's State Capitol. We'll have a reception to follow at Morrill Hall on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln campus. For all you out-of-towners and non-Husker alums, that's the University of Nebraska State Museum, home to displays detailing our state's natural history and history of the great plains.

WHERE TO STAY

We have set aside a block of hotel rooms in Lincoln's new Railyard District. Click the link below to reserve at the Hyatt Place for the weekend or feel free to make any accommodations you'd like.

For our out-of-town friends: PLEASE get in touch with us about where you plan to stay. We want to make it as affordable as possible. While Airbnb is not "officially" allowed in Lincoln, there are some places available. Bottom line: please consider rooming with friends, family -- anyone!

GETTING AROUND

Our ceremony, reception and after hours are within walking distance of each other in downtown Lincoln. We recommend enjoying the day the walking way. Or you can try Happy Cab (taxis), Lyft or Uber.

Parking: We have limited parking spots available in front of our reception venue at Morrill Hall that we're reserving for family as-needed. We suggest parking in metered spots, which are free after 6:00pm, or nearby garages downtown, including:

  • Que Place Garage: 1111 Q Street
  • Rampark Parking Garage: 1225 P Street
  • University Square Garage: 101 N 14th Street

REGISTRY

We're currently registered at West Elm and Target.

However, after nearly a decade of dating and a year in a tiny house, the stuff we need most are things like a couch and coffee table, not kitchenware. For that reason, we kindly ask that you consider skipping the registry and considering cash or gift cards. 

FLYING INTO OMAHA, LINCOLN

If you're flying in from out of town, you've got two options: Eppley Airfield in Omaha and Lincoln's Municipal Airport. If you've done some searching, you'll notice that Omaha is likely cheaper, but it's also about an hour drive from Lincoln. So, you know, choose wisely.

For our guests coming in from out of town: Please don't hesitate to ask for a ride and save on a car rental! We'd love to pick you up and drop you off at the Lincoln or Omaha airport (within reason). We have a Suburban and we plan to use it! Of course, you can always rent a car or Uber, Lyft, taxis, etc.
