Wedding Wednesday!

Business first -My lovely little Brie from Sophistifunk is hosting a pretty awesome giveaway! Go enter that and then come back here to read my first (of probably many) Wedding Wednesday posts! I will wait, go ahead...

Oh, and by the way isn't she so sophistifunky? You can't help but just adore her!

Now on with the show...
My first Wedding Wednesday post! EEK! I feel like I am officially actually legitimately in real life going to be married now that I have booked our venue (and of course because I'm doing a Wedding Wednesday post)! It's quite exciting!

Without further adieu, I present to you Nikki & Skye's wedding venue -- Sequoyah Marina in Norris, TN. AKA our home away from home, our boat dock.

Originally, before I was ever presented with 10 million other options we wanted something on the water. We are water people, we both grew up on the lake, we spend lots and lots of hours here and it's what we love - so it made sense. We want to live here someday, hopefully in the not so distant future. So I ended up finding out perfect wedding place smack dab under my nose.

We will do our actual ceremony outside on the dock. This will not be open to the public so nobody will be walking around the dock photobombing us.


Then we will proceed upstairs for the party reception! A girl I went to high school with recently got married here, and here are a few of my favorite shots from her wedding. This is where we keep our boat so I hope we can get a boat getaway shot like they did! Love it! She and I are having lunch next week to discuss everything she loved and wanted to change about her wedding so maybe I can learn from her.

Now I feel like the real wedding planning, the fun detailed stuff, can begin. I feel so relieved now that this part is finalized. So what do you guys think? It fits us, or what you know of us, right?

283 Days until Nikki & Skye Get Hitched!
