We require your presence to help us celebrate our big day!
Below, you will find all the information you need for your weekend getaway with us!
Tim went to the Mountain Workshops in Paducah in the autumn of 2016 and fell in love with the city. As soon as he got home, he told Nik that he had been falling in love with her too.
Since June of 2016, we have been riding roller coasters, both literal and figurative, and continue to come out the other end wanting nothing but more. Not only have we been on coasters but have driven the roads of our beautiful country, spending hours on end turning white dots into lines and yellow lines into mile upon mile. The city of Paducah has become special to us, and we hope to share that with y'all.
The land where the rivers meet has its own kind of magic, and we hope you'll come experience it for yourselves.
Founders' Room at the River Discovery Center
117 S. Water Street, Paducah, KY 42001
600 N. 4th St., Paducah, KY 42001
We have secured a block of rooms at the Holiday Inn - Paducah Riverfront for a special rate. Be sure to mention the McLaren/Galloway Wedding. The hotel is very close to downtown and the wedding venue isn’t too far of a walk.
We will be staying at the 1857 Hotel Guest House which is downtown, very close to the venue.
Ceremony and reception
Join us as we say our vows and celebrate our union. We will be gathering at 3:30pm on Saturday, October, 6, 2018 in the Founders' Room on the second floor of the River Discovery Center. The ceremony will begin promptly at 4. After the ceremony, we humbly request you join us along the riverfront (a short walk) for photographs before the two of us take to the streets of Paducah for our photos.
We kindly request that no photos or videos are taken during the ceremony. We ask that all cameras and mobile devices are stowed to prevent any distractions so we can all enjoy the experience equally.
While we are gone, please enjoy a snack (a meat, cheese and fruit spread will be available), coffee from Etcetera or a DIY cocktail or drink until we return to break bread with y'all.
Before dinner, we would like to say a few words and invite you to do the same, if you feel so inclined.
As our venue is rather intimate, we won't have a traditional dance floor but we will definitely have some music if you’d like to partake. Afterward, we are looking forward to spending time with everyone to laugh, smile, cry and enjoy the experience.
For dinner, we wanted to keep things simple so we are having Just Hamburgers cater for us. There will be cheeseburgers, chicken salad sandwiches, fries and all the fixin’s. We will also have a killer BLT pasta salad from Midtown Market.
If you're feeling generous and would like to present us with a gift, please visit our registries for suggestions and ideas.
We will be hosting a wedding shower for everyone to come celebrate with us on August 25, 2018. Please bring any gifts to the shower to make travel to and from Paducah easier. If you're unable to make it, that's okay! We'll see you in the south!
Stuff to do while you're in paducah
Paducah, KY is a UNESCO Creative City and there is a lot of cool stuff to do around the town. We know that y'all are coming down to celebrate with us, but we'd also love for you to take some time to check out the city. We will be in town on the 4th, so if you'd like to come early and spend some extra time, please do!
This is an abbreviated list of a few places we've found around the city. Be sure to get yourself a cheeseburger!
