So at the end of the day, we have nothing "cemented" other than having our name in at The Solarium on the reservation list. I talked to Jason and he shared that he too had some concerns about The Solarium fitting with what we were looking for and agreed we should revisit the Trolley Barn (TB). I mentioned Callanwolde (the 1920's Gothic Tudor home of Charles Howard Candler, the oldest son of the founder of Coca Cola) as I'd previously emailed with their event coordinator Charlotte (who is an absolute PEACH!) and Callanwolde is so damn gorgeous. Their outdoor space is super amazeballs and the architecture is stunning. Ever since we got engaged, I've had this secret dream of getting my picture taken in my wedding dress on the staircase there. So today I emailed Charlotte to see if we can come for a tour this week. The mere possibility of getting married there thrills me to the core! Bonus: they have coral curtains in the music room so you know this is a solid establishment. We'll see what happens this week!
