We found a venue ~ we all love it ~ Granny, Amy and I went yesterday and booked it! The wedding will be on a Sunday ~ mainly because they book 13 months out and every Saturday is booked in the fall.
|This area is 120 ft long. It will be our ceremony area!|
We did opt for a date in October. And we rented another "inside" building for the reception/party afterwards....just in case of wet or windy, cold weather.
I goggled GA State Parks and then searched for ones with wedding venues. As soon as I saw this beautiful building I knew it was the one ~ I showed it to Amy and in her words "this is it"! Austin and his parents haven't seen it in person but they loved the pictures.
Before I searched, I had never heard of this park or even heard of the town it was located in ~ turns out, its 1 hour and 1 minutes from our home!! Now that is cool.
The out of town guests ~ or guests that just want to stay the weekend can tent camp, rv camp, rent a cabin or stay in one of the hotels minutes away. We opted for the cabin stay.
*We were in Mississippi last weekend and spent Saturday shopping with Austin and his family. They found what the groomsmen will wear and then set up a wedding registry at Belk. Things are progressing right along!
The next 12 months will go by pretty quickly!
Thankful for ~
a beautiful venue
