During a romantic weekend trip to Atlanta

During a romantic weekend trip to Atlanta in April 2009, my then boyfriend and I shared a fabulous dinner at Rays in the City complete with the cold seafood tower, seafood entrees and a scrumptious dessert.

On January 1, 2010 around 2:00 PM at Rays on the Creek (it was called Ray's Killer Creek when we wed) in Alpharetta, GA, my husband and I exchanged vows in front of a glowing fireplace in one of your private dining rooms. My nine year old step-daughter, mother, sister-in-law and three friends were in attendance as we exchanges vows in a short, yet beautiful ceremony. The setting was gorgeous, the staff's level of customer service established an elegant yet comfortable tone for the afternoon and the food, as usual, was impeccable.

As we celebrated our three year anniversary this year, our little family has grown to four with the addition of our 14 month old Addison, but Ray's on the River Sunday brunch remains our favorite place to share a moment as a couple and with family or friends. I'm thankful for establishments such as yours who go above and beyond to create a magical guest experience.
