soon-to-be Drew and Margie Sorrell

Engaged in August 2010, we decided to track our wedding planning with a blog!  We’re getting married in the Lake Oconee area of Georgia which is a little over an hour east of Atlanta.  A fall 2011 wedding is the goal and we set the date for September 24.  It seems far away at this time but we know how fast it goes so we’re scrambling to take care of the details.  Margie, a local real estate agent was born in this area and grew up in Athens, GA.  Her family owns a Bed and Breakfast/ Event Venue in Greensboro, GA called Goodwin Manor where the reception is planned.  Drew, a stock trader, also owns a Lake Oconee party rental company called Goodwin Event Rentals so obviously his company will supply the tents, tables, chairs, and more for the big event.  That will save us tons of money and allow us to have nicer items we couldn’t normally afford like chiavari chairs!  We’re not new to living our life in the public sphere.  For several years we traveled the globe on Dosia, Drew’s sailboat.  We sold the boat in early 2010 in Australia and came home  to start our new lives.  Our adventure was chronicled on Get Lost On Purpose.   That blog was followed by over 20 thousand sailors and travelers from 150 countries.  One day it will follow our next sailing and traveling adventure!
