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
We have secured a block of rooms at the La Quinta Inn Paducah for a special rate of $89/night + tax. Be sure to mention the McLaren/Galloway Wedding and request one or two beds in the room. Bookings must be made before September 12, 2018 in order to qualify for the discounted rate.
Ceremony and reception
Join us as we say our vows and celebrate our union. We will be gathering at 4pm on Saturday, October, 6, 2018 in the Founders' Room on the second floor of the River Discovery Center. 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, coffee and/or cocktail 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 a first dance, a dance with the bride and father of the bride, and groom with the mother of the groom. Afterward, we are looking forward to spending time with everyone to laugh, smile, cry and enjoy the experience.
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!
