Wedding Wednesday

The worst blogger in the world. That would be me. I have been SO busy these last few weeks that I have had very little time to do anything fun. Now that school is out until January 7th I will have a little more free time : )

Not too much is going on as far as the wedding goes. We are sending out save the dates tomorrow, which I am super excited about! I can't wait for y'all to see them!!

Today for Wedding Wednesday I want to talk about our rehearsal dinner venue. 

For the last (almost) four years of mine + Adam's relationship we have loved spending time on Lake Oconee together. That's our favorite thing to do in the summers and we spend most of our weekends there. When our relationship got more serious and we began talking about getting married we always envisioned getting married at the Ritz Carlton, Reynolds Plantation on Lake Oconee. It was the perfect venue!


Then... Carrie Underwood decided to get married there. & the Ritz decided to DOUBLE their prices for weddings.. so our perfect venue was out of the question. So we decided that we should do our rehearsal dinner at one of our favorite restaurants at the Ritz--Gaby's by the Lake-- since we couldn't get married there : )



Gaby's is the building on the bottom right of this picture

It is the perfect, low-key, outdoor venue for our rehearsal dinner! It is within minutes of our wedding venue and is one of my favorite restaurants ever! 

Only 192 days to go!!

  2. It looks amazing, Jamie! Sorry the prices jumped, but at least you can still do your rehearsal dinner there! I always wanted to get married at this old hotel near my hometown. The prices went from $2,000-5,000 to have a wedding there to almost $20,000 after they put in the casino down the road. So I kinda know how you feel.

  3. I LOVE this idea! Even though you can't get married there it will be SO special that you can have the rehearsal dinner there! YAY! I can't wait until your wedding! Kayla and I were talking this weekend about how amazing we think it will be. :)
