Our wedding will be held in Atlanta. Naturally, it has an official website. In short, Atlanta is a wonderful town of something on the order of four million folks.
Atlanta lies in the foothills of the Appalachians. It is cooler than other parts of central Georgia, but the summers are still hot. While we might claim that New Jersey summers are more humid, Atlanta gets its share of water in the air as well. By the time June has arrived the dogwood trees and azaleas will be in full bloom. The temperature will likely be somewhere between 75-85 F but it shouldn't be very humid. BTW, if you suffer from allergies... well, um, Atlanta gets a lot of pollen.
