The next order of business was to find a location to get married. I have lived in Birmingham for the past 10 years, so naturally I wanted to get married there. I have attended a fabulous church (Church of the Highlands) for the past 4 years. Unfortunately, my church does not have a chapel for weddings. What's a girl to do?! I began checking popular wedding venues all over the area and everything was already booked for June 12th. Crazy! I thought getting engaged in August and planning a June wedding was ample time to prepare!! I was obviously wrong! So once again, as any Attalla bride would do, I decided to bring the wedding back to the home roots! I have chosen to get married in the church that I was a member of while in high school. It is a very special place for me because my sister and I were baptized there together. I am certain I will feel her presence there during the wedding. So First Baptist Church of Attalla will be the fabulous setting for my fairytale wedding!! Whoo hoo!
The next drama was finding a place for the reception. Attalla isn't the largest town, so I knew this would be a tough one. But, as I always say, God provides! The Gadsden Country Club was available for my date so we quickly filled out the form and got my name on the calendar. You just can't hesitate when planning these events!! So thank goodness everything is finally settled! What a relief!
Here are the final details for the wedding:
