Busy Weekend!

Wow! We've had a busy weekend of wedding planning...with over 800 miles of driving, too! Cary and I don't have class on Fridays so we headed up to Cumming, GA to meet with the wedding consultant from Windermere Golf Club. Jennifer showed my mom, Cary, and me around the clubhouse and answered all of our questions before drafting a contract for us. We plan to sign it and make it official soon! Cary and I both love this place, mainly because of its spacious indoor and outdoor seating. It was really important to us that our friends and family were comfortable and had a great time. There is also room for a dance floor, a large outdoor patio area, and great view of the beautiful golf course. We've arranged to have a low country boil (and alternatives for those who don't like seafood), which Cary is excited about!

Afterward, we headed to some of the local hotels to see the rooms and get some price quotes. Of the three main hotels closest to the church and Windermere, Holiday Inn Express was the best. It is the newest (only 7 months old), most modern (looks like it belongs on HGTV), and has the largest rooms (the suites are amazing), not to mention it was the least expensive! We highly recommend this hotel to our guests, and we will set up a group rate soon. If however, you wish to stay at other hotels (maybe because of reward points, etc), beware of Comfort Suites. It has "seen better days" as my mom says, and it was very disappointing.
We headed back to Augusta that afternoon so that we could participate in MCG's Physical Therapy School's White Coat Ceremony on Saturday morning. This ceremony was symbolic of our achievement and readiness to treat patients as physical therapists. Then it was off to Tate, GA for Eric and Diana's wedding, where we saw several of Cary's fraternity brothers and had a great time. It is fun for us to see weddings and take notes.
