If you're planning on traveling to BG for our wedding and need a place to stay, consider staying at the Holiday Inn Express (2150 East Wooster Street, 419-353-5500).  

Jake and I have a block of rooms reserved for a discounted price ($89 a night as opposed to the normal rate of $120 a night). While the discount primarily applies to the night of July 17th, the hotel staff has said that the discounted rate can be applied to the night before or night after if rooms are available. If you DO decide to book a room here, make sure to specifically request the Rakas/Hildreth wedding discount.

A note to Rakas/Niccum family: My Dad has already booked your rooms. Make sure to touch base with him instead of calling the hotel.
