Always in our hearts

Rock City has always been a magical place for me. My first time visiting I was actually a performer during the Christmas Season. I came with a group from College and we sang every year during the festival of lights. I loved this season at Rock City and visiting during the festival became a yearly Christmas tradition.  While on a visit during November of 2006, my then boyfriend and I went for what I thought was just an annual Christmas visit. He ended up proposing to me on Lover's Leap that same evening. When planning our wedding we knew we would want to keep our engagement location involved in our wedding plans. We were lucky enough to be one of the first couples to have our wedding reception at the pavilion in Rock City and even gave small rock city birdhouses as gifts to some of our family members. As a surprise to us, they even gave us a sneak peak of that years festival of lights and turned on the lights as we were making our grand exit. Rock City is a place that will forever be a part of our hearts and lives. Every time we visit Chattanooga we take a stroll down memory lane through the cracks and caves of this magical place.
