We have finally booked the hotel room block for our out-of-town guests for our main wedding event! Rooms will be at the newly renovated Oakland Marriott City Center, which is just a flew blocks away from the event location on Lake Merritt. For more information and to book your rooms, please click here.
In other news, we were ousted out of the Sailboat House for the wedding reception in favour of an international rowing regatta. Luckily, we were able to convince the Oakland Parks and Rec folks to let us stay in the Lakeside Gardens by promising that 99% of our guests would be participating in alternative modes of transportation, and will not be using cars to get to our event. So please consider the many other options that we have available if you can! (e.g. BART, Amtrak, San Francisco Ferry, AC Transit and Lyft) Reducing our carbon footprint would be a fantastic wedding present!
