: : Mrs Carter of the Carter house at Chimney Rock told me that they plan to build a Wedding Chapel in the area soon. Wouldn't it be cool if we could get a minister to join the group or drag one along to the "Green Knob" so that couples could exchange or re-exchnage their vows?
Then Sarah wrote:
: If I EVER get to the alter (AAACK -- can't think those thoughts), Chimney Rock might be a very cool place to have a service view-wise. Unfortunately, it is associated in my mind as the scene of so much death and tragedy (even if it was fiction!! Who said we Mohicanites are good with our boundaries?). Hard to get over that. Green Knob could be interesting... Sigh, not this year...
Hi, Thomas & Sarah...it might interest you to note that my husband and I did renew our wedding vows in the vicinity of Chimney Rock. We clambered way out into the middle of the river underneath the chimney and onto a great big ol' rock, with water just rushing by on every side. And there, in the peaceful serenity of that special place, we exhanged our wedding rings again, and made the following romantic and heartfelt promises to each other:
*ahem...Mark: I promise to listen to you and be more attentive.
Me: Then I promise to quit being such a B**** and stay off your case.
And with that, we vowed to try it again for another 11 (at the time) years! ;o) Sentimental, eh? hehe
It WAS a special time for us, though, and a marriage or real vow renewal in those mountains would be lovely. Maybe someday...
