(Serving the Amicalola Falls area in the North Georgia Mountains)
Here are some of the many more customer referrals I have received in the two decades that I have been a wedding officiant. They are not in any particular order, they're just some of the many couples I have married over the years. There are lots of styles and types of weddings represented!
These pictures (left to right) are on the veranda of Amicalola Falls State Park, at Unicoi State Park, and at Bear Ridge Lodge, two of which are close to where I live. That makes officiating weddings very easy for me! I will travel to other places relatively close to the Amicalola Falls area. You'll see in other pictures below where some of those are.
The next two are in the big Gazebo at Forrest Hills Mountain Resort. In the first one, I am making the couple legally married by signing their Marriage License. That's kind of important to most people. The second one is the first handfasting I ever did, which was really fun! We did have to practice it a little bit first at the rehearsal.
Here's another couple on the veranda at Amicalola Falls on the left and a Western Wedding at Forrest Hills Mountain Resort on the right. That was a new style for me and nice to have it be so casual. I like to do weddings that are somewhat different from the norm. Variety is the spice of life, so they say.
These two pictures are from the Brasstown Valley Resort near Blue Ridge and the Atlanta History Center in the middle of downtown Atlanta from left to right. So as you can see, I have traveled far and wide in the quest to get people hitched! Both venues were really beautiful places. Just as a bit of trivia for you, the Plantation Plain house that is sitting on the property at the Atlanta History Center as an example of 19th century living once belonged to one of my ancestors. Small world, isn't it?
These two pictures show the bridge in the middle of Amicalola Falls and a wedding in the small gazebo that is up a short trail from the Lodge at Amicalola Falls. There are lots of different places to choose from at this park, which is one of the most beautiful in the state of Georgia. The water drops 729 feet over the rocks and the word "Amicalola" means "tumbling water" in Cherokee. That's exactly what it does as it comes down, too!
This wedding on the left is at Bear Ridge Lodge, about half a mile down the road from where I live. You can rent the house in the background and have your wedding by the lake, weather permitting of course. The one on the right is at a beautiful ranch in Blue Ridge which can also be rented out. Two great venues for outdoor weddings!
