Both the ceremony and reception will be held at 6 o'clock the evening of April 30, 2011
At The Solarium
321 West Hill Street, Decatur, GA 30030
We’d also like to invite our wedding guests to join us Sunday morning at Morgan Falls Outlook Park for a picnic brunch.
Upon the recommendation of fellow Offbeat Brides, I got into contact with Lindsey at Dandy Lion Events. She is fantastic! Full of ideas and energy, and very organized. She allows me not to worry too much about whether I’m remembering every little detail, because I know if it’s important, she’ll take care of it. Her references could not have been more glowing, and her blog is well worth a read.
We visited a ton of different places around town, and it finally came down to The Cator Wolford Gardens or The Solarium. Both are gorgeous, have lots of history, and have great outdoor areas. The Solarium is a lot more comfortable though, and leaves us a bit more room in the budget for other stuff, so we decided it was the right fit for us. Nikkia and Beth have been really friendly and helpful throughout the planning process, which is SO nice.
