A few weeks ago, George and I took a quick trip out to the Texas hill country so that we could visit our wedding venue and I could attend a work meeting. Our venue has an open house once a month that had been impossible to fit into our schedules so far, but it just happened to work out perfectly this month because I needed to be in San Antonio for work the following day. Even though it was a quick two day trip in two completely different cities, we decided to make the most of it and play tourist on our mini ‘work-cation.’
Our wedding venue is located in Georgetown, which is a small town just outside of Austin. We found our venue by chance during an internet search, and fell in love with it when we visited, but we had never actually experienced Georgetown before. When we signed the venue contract, we had NO CLUE what an adorable little town it really is. That turned out to be the icing on the cake!
We spent our day in Georgetown exploring the historic downtown area, which is full of adorable shops, restaurants, and cafes. George and I spent hours getting lost in the antique stores reminiscing about ‘vintage’ toys and kitchen gadgets from our childhood (are we that old?!) and discovering unique treasures. We both started on our Christmas shopping, which is probably the earliest in the year I’ve ever bought a Christmas gift! We ended our day with a quick stop at Lake Georgetown to watch the sunset and then went to our venue for the open house. We had such a great time chatting with all of the vendors, and it was just the trip I needed to push me to start getting more wedding things done!
Side note – we forgot to bring the camera on our trip so all of the pictures you see here were taken on George’s iPad. They are completely unedited and unfiltered. Good job, iPad!
This ‘LOVE’ sign is at our wedding venue, isn’t it adorable?
Have any of you ever visited Georgetown before? I’d love to know!
