Kris and Mark's Wedding

Big

We have only been living in Georgia for less than a year - coming from the Mid-west, so our guests came in from all over . . . Indiana, Iowa, Ohio, No. Carolina, Florida. We wanted to show them WHY we chose this location to start our new lives together, by offering them a "vacation" of 3-day activities to explore our new area. Athens to check out UGA, shopping in Madison, golfing at Reynolds, southern BBQ at the house and an absolutely beautiful outdoor wedding by the lake. We had a small, intimate wedding with those closest to us - about 45 friends & family. Very simple and non-traditional. Didn't even have a wedding cake . . . had a candy bar instead!!! Wouldn't change a thing!! There were tornadoes & heavy rains whipping through the area the weekend before . . . but as soon as our guests arrived, the clouds cleared and the sun shined the entire time!! God was definitely looking down on us and giving his blessing! :-)

From Atlanta, GA . . . our original musician bailed 3 days before and Wesley learned ALL material in ONE day!!! Was AMAZING and absolutely charming. Great appeal with our guests. Played acoustic guitar and vocals.

Was the perfect spot for an outdoor, casual wedding. Right on the water . . . . and even rented a pontoon for a champagne sun-set cruise around the lake afterward. You DO need to be a member or be member-sponsored.
