Our wedding is not a destination wedding. We’ve each lived in Atlanta for more than five years and have grown to call it home. We’re getting married at a venue that’s exactly one and a half miles from our apartment. That’s so close, you guys. We could walk there in 30 minutes.
But for the vast majority of our guest list, Atlanta is a destination. One that requires, at minimum, one plane, two taxis, and a few nights at a hotel. Let’s figure out how this happened using a Miss Hen and Mr. Rooster stick figure infographic:
I grew up in Miami and went to school in Gainesville (Go Gators!). Roo grew up in Brighton and went to school in Kalamazoo (Go Broncos!). On our 100-person guest list there’s a handful of friends we’ve met in Atlanta and a few respective hometown friends who have scattered around the country and the world, but a huge proportion of our guests will be traveling hundreds of miles from Florida or Michigan to be with us.
