I have always been an optimist..you know, a “the glass is half full” kind of girl. I look on the bright side, I find something to laugh about in life’s most devastating moments. However, when it comes to contests…I’m out. If there were 99 door prize drawings and 100 people….you guessed it, everyone but me would win. Not being negative, I laugh at this, it’s just the way it is.
“So what does this have to do with weddings, or Riverside Cottage”, you may be asking. It actually has a lot to do with weddings. If you attend the Faye Mann/Times Daily Bridal Show at the Marriott Shoals Conference Center (if you don’t—you should:), then you know that in the January show a complete wedding package is given away to one VERY lucky bride.
If you are like me, thinking I would never win this, because I NEVER win anything. Think again!!! Someone wins..why not you? This past January 2012, Bride, Martha Norton literally jumped out of her seat and screamed like crazy when she heard her name called as Grand Prize winner. Martha won a complete wedding, honeymoon and spending money for the honeymoon included!
Riverside Cottage Wedding and Event Venue was the sponsor for the wedding and reception location. On May 12th, 2012 Martha Norton and David Godsey were united in marriage at the beautiful Riverside Cottage in Tuscumbia. Alabama. Chair and tables provided by Party Pros, cake by Sugar on Top, bridesmaids dresses by Burch and Hatfield, flowers by Kaleidoscope Florist, bridal portrait by Portraits by Sharie, Save the Day Designs provided wedding invitations, Cherry Tree Lane provided the wedding gown and Mary’s Bridal provided the Tuxedo’s. Wow! What an incredible package!
Martha did what I encourage every Riverside Cottage bride to do, “make it your own”. Let your personality shine through in you wedding. Whether it’s wearing cowboy boots with your wedding gown, camo vests with the tux, or donning a Sarah Burton by Alexander McQueen Gown as did Kate Middleton in her fairy tale wedding. The bridal party followed by the bride and her father all danced down the aisle. It was a beautiful wedding.
I managed to take some shots of the wedding with my own camera to share with you. If you are longing for an outside wedding, then you are at the right place! The pictures of Riverside Cottage are gorgeous but everyone who visits our venue says, “the pictures do no do Riverside Cottage justice”. Call for an appointment to view the venue or just to get more information.
