Location, Location, Location!

29 Sep

After MONTHS of scouring the internet for a location for our wedding, I found it while walking downtown in my fiance’s home town. Once again the Universe took care things. Although in the excitement and making sure I covered all the questions (I had no idea I was so unprepared!) I neglected to take any pictures when Thomas and I went to go look at it together. So for that dear readers, I apologize. It’s beautiful though. Loft style, exposed brick, artsy and industrial. Exactly what I had in my minds eye. In all honesty, I don’t really care where it is, so long as its indoors and air conditioned, I just cannot wait to marry my very best friend. ❤

The Parson’s Table (aka The Wedding Venue That Wasn’t)

20 Jul

The hunt is on for a venue to host our upcoming wedding. This is proving to be a rather difficult feat. All we want is a quirky place that reflects who we are. Is that too much to ask? Evidently so.

Lo! There was The Parson’s Table! I thought perhaps we had found the place!

This beautiful church built sometime in the 1870’s is in historic Jonesboro. It hasn’t served as a church for some while. It’s just quirky enough and is placed in a beautiful setting that has perfect colours in the Fall.

How could one not fall in love with this place!?

Early 50’s wedges – thrifted (These are my favorite shoes right now. I wish I had more colours)

Unfortunately for us (and them! Just think of what a fabulous wedding we are to have!) they are only fulfilling their reservations already booked through this year, and are making no commitments to hosting any new events.

So the search is still on for a site to hold our awesome wedding. Since I’m not from this area the local hidden gems are, well, still hidden. So by all means, let me know of neat places we can go look at in East Tennessee.

Oh, this was the only picture I snagged of my whole outfit.
