Norway Day occurs every May in San Francisco and is a great festival that celebrates our beloved Norwegian culture and heritage. This year, however, the festival had a very special Sons of Norway twist.

Mary Beth and Carl Ingvoldstad, two of our favorite members and Secretary and President, respectively, of Vikings of Lake 6-166, were honored in a wonderful and unique way – they renewed their wedding vows in a traditional Norwegian wedding ceremony!

The lovely couple, above, adorned their Gudbrandsdalen area bunader for this occasion, as did their attendants. Mary Beth was lucky enough to wear (for the day) a silver Trondheim wedding crown, which, aside from the weight, I gather was a fantastic experience.

Congratulations to Carl and Mary Beth!
