Wedding Registries

Wedding Registries

Sep 25

Working in the mall [and being female] had prepared me for the exciting task of registering for wedding gifts. Even with all my planning, I still hadn’t decided all the places that we should go when it came time to scan what we’d want/need for our lives together. Initially, I was going to take David to JCPenney to pick out some reasonably priced towels. However, their recent restructuring...

The Church Post

The Church Post

Feb 10

After recovering from the news that we would not be able to get married in the chapel at Johnson Ferry Baptist, we began looking at center-aisle, non-member-friendly churches in the Roswell area. Mimosa Blvd has about a thousand churches on it, so we started there. The gorgeous, historic Presbyterian church was instantly ruled out, because they only do weddings for members. BOO. The Baptist...

In honor of hitting one year(!) until the wedding day, here’s the story of how we bought the dress I’ll be wearing one year from today. I want to assure our readers that what I am about to discuss isn’t spoiling tradition. All David will know after reading this is that I will, in fact, be wearing a wedding dress on November 3, 2012. So let’s begin… I have been looking at...

Roswell Founders Hall

Roswell Founders Hall

Oct 28

After leaving Historic Great Oaks and inhaling some yogurt, we made our way to Roswell Founders Hall. I was honestly ready to not be impressed. I didn’t know a lot about the venue, I was already coming from a place I didn’t like, and I was still in love with Primrose Cottage. We get there and the first thing I notice is that they have their own parking lot. This may sound like a minor thing,...

Great Oaks

Great Oaks

Oct 10

Ok, so let’s face it. Great Oaks was doomed before I had even gotten there. I wasn’t feeling great that day, and I wasn’t 100% sure that I wasn’t going to pass out half-way through the tour. As far as venues go, this was a beautiful property. However, there was one superficial detail that I couldn’t get over – the red brick. Every other place we looked at was painted white, and I...

Whitlock Inn

Whitlock Inn

Sep 12

I’ll go ahead and spoil the ending of this entry for you. Remember how at Primrose, we loved the physical venue, but were a little wary about the service and amenities? Nothing game-breaking, just not quite sold on that side of things yet? Whitlock Inn is the opposite. Whitlock Inn was the second place we visited, actually right after Primrose Cottage on the same day. Located right off the...

Primrose Cottage

Primrose Cottage

Sep 05

The first venue we visited was Primrose Cottage, pictured to the left. From our early research online, Primrose was also our initial frontrunner. It’s located in Roswell only a couple miles away from the church we’re looking at. Initially our only concern about the place had been seating: from the pictures online, it appeared that the place sat people in a series of small rooms...

You’d think that having 500 days (well, 461 days as I’m writing this) would give us plenty of time to slowly plan out everything and take our time. You might be right, considering no less than four of our friends have managed to plan weddings and receptions in a third of the time that we have to plan ours. But if you take solely from our experience so far, you’d be dead wrong. A...
