    Thanks, Razorback! I opted not to spend the $$$ and watche the fireworks from a park nearby, but my niece went, and she said it was a great show!

    Noew, I hope Carrie can take it easy and enjoy her wedding.

    The rumors & speculations are flying 90 to nothing. The below article was just posted.

    Carrie Underwood takes over hotel | Earth Times News

    Carrie Underwood has booked out an entire hotel for her wedding.

    The country music singer - who has been engaged to Canadian hockey player Mike Fisher since December 2009 - has reserved the entire Ritz-Carlton Lodge in the small community of Greensboro, Georgia, at a price of $268,000 a night for her nuptials tomorrow (10.07.10).

    Carey Williams, editor of the Herald Journal in Greensboro, revealed: "She has blocked off all 251 rooms at the hotel. Carrie will be flying in by helicopter today (09.07.10)."

    Rooms at the Lodge cost between $300 and $1,500 a night, and for $4,000 a night guests get VIP use of a nearby lake and the 18th green on the golf course.

    Carrie and Mike will spend their first night together as husband and wife in the Presidential House.

    It comes complete with four master suites, a gourmet kitchen, a private pool and lounge and a recreation room.

    Guests began arriving at the exclusive venue on Wednesday (07.07.10) for the event, which is rumoured to be costing in excess of $500,000.

    The 27-year-old singer is believed to have secured exclusive rights with a weekly magazine to publish the photographs of her big day.

    A source said: "Carrie wants to keep the wedding small and secret. She originally wanted up to $2 million for the photo rights, but she's now believed to have struck a deal with a weekly magazine."

    The below is an email I got from a friend this morning confirming what the article is saying.

    Saw our girl Tuesday. I was fishin' a certain area that has two creek channels that converge by some boat docks on a lake that shall remain nameless. Great early morning hole for a topwater bite. I was working down the creek edge when this tiny blond chick walking a tiny little dog walks down to the dock and asks me how I'm doing. We talked for a minute or two and she was funny. Heh! Anyhoo, the rumors of where the wedding is taking place are true. Security shut the cove down as of yesterday and no one can get into it until Monday of next week. That little blond chick apologized for the inconvenience she is causing. he-he! She wanted to go fishin'! Ha!

    It's official - Carrie and Mike were married today.

    Ottaw Citizen: Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher tie the knot

    People Magazine: Carrie Underwood Gets Married in Southern Style

    GREENSBORO, Ga. — Mike Fisher and Carrie Underwood were married here Saturday night under a big tent at the Ritz-Carlton Lodge, Reynolds Plantation.

    "We could not feel more blessed to have found each other and to have shared this day with our friends and family that mean so much to us," the couple told People magazine in a statement, signing their names "Mike & Carrie Fisher."

    The bride wore a Chantilly lace dress created by Monique Lhuillier, who also designed the bridesmaid’s dresses.

    About 250 family and friends were at the wedding ceremony which featured classical music and the couple’s favourite Bible readings.

    Re: Carrie Underwood

    The girl that so many claimed would never amount to anything as a singer, an artist, or a celebrity personality, has certainly become quite the opposite, eh? Congrats to Carrie from one that never doubted & Mike from a very envious Carrie fan.

    The pie to die for at Mike, Carrie’s wedding

    By Joanne Chianello, The Ottawa Citizen July 10, 2010


    Ottawa Senators centre Mike Fisher and his fiancee, country music superstar Carrie Underwood, kissed at the CMT Country Music Awards show in Nashville, Wednesday night. It was a rare PDA by the couple, who guard their privacy.

    At the end of the day, everyone agreed the best thing was the pie.

    Bill was a close second, for sure. Bill — no last name, thanks — who gave us an impromptu tour of the historic district of Greensboro. And who was anxiously awaiting an old friend who grew up on the neighbouring farm in Indiana. John Mellencamp. The singer likes to stay with Bill whenever he’s passing through.

    And what was bringing Mr. Mellencamp to town? Bill preferred not to say. Which must have been hard for him because Bill is a pretty friendly guy. He did allow that his poor housekeeper was “at home killing herself cleaning.”

    But even Bill had to admit that the buttermilk pie was something. Even Southern Living magazine thought so, which is why the publication named it one of the best pies in the entire southern United States.

    Everyone loves this pie including, it turns out, Carrie Underwood.

    At the very least, it’s a pie she thinks her guests would like because she ordered hundreds of them for her wedding to Ottawa Senator Mike Fisher, which took place Saturday night at the posh Ritz-Carlton Lodge — Reynolds Plantation.

    Not that Chris Bragg, the co-owner of The Yesterday Café in downtown Greensboro, Georgia, which is responsible for the delicious concoction, would either confirm or deny.

    Big order going out today? “Could be, could be.”

    Bragg, like many others in this town that seems almost preserved in time, is sticking to his confidentiality-agreement guns. Seems like everyone has signed one: the pie shop, the limousine company, staff at the five-star resort where it’s all happening, even the sheriff’s office that was hired to provide extra security on the road — and waterways — to keep media away from the biggest celebrity wedding of the year.

    The couple of the hour wanted to have a private wedding, and that’s exactly what they got. Whether or not you’re famous, no one wants a dozen helicopters buzzing overhead and a mob of pushy strangers snapping photos on that most important day. But when you’re celebrities, you have a further reason to up the security: exclusive photo deal.

    And the prize of Underwood-Fisher wedding photos went to People magazine. Signing an exclusive arrangement works well for power couples of star magnitude: they (or their people) can negotiate the dos and don’ts ahead of time, such as whether a reporter can speak to any guests, and which ones. The bride and groom also get a whack of money. In exchange, the couple can’t be photographed by any other media, which is great because they don’t want to be anyhow.

    On Saturday evening, People posted its first webhit about the wedding — unlike every other entertainment media that’s been speculating wildly about it for almost a week — confirming that Underwood and Fisher were married under a tent (so there was a tent, after all!) before 250 guests. The bride wore a Chantilly lace dress.

    The magazine’s quote from “Mike and Carrie Fisher” was provided in a statement. Full-colour glossy spreads of the bride, the bridesmaids and the dinner menu will be coming to a newsstand near you.

    Apparently, People paid big for those pictures. We heard it was a whopping $2 million — but that was from our waitress at a local steakhouse, who heard it from another group of diners earlier in the evening.

    Turns out, a seven-figure price tag might not be so off the mark.

    “This wedding is a very big deal in the entertainment world,” Lora McLaughlin told us. She would not be surprised to hear People paid over $1 million for the photos — after all, the magazine paid five times that for snaps of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s baby Shiloh.

    That covers the wedding costs nicely, although the half-million-dollar estimate for the celebration is starting to seem modest. And the couple is likely to donate at least some of it to charity.

    McLaughlin is a broadcaster and occasional actor who sometimes freelances for Entertainment Tonight. Although she lives with her husband in California, they have a vacation home here where, in a bizarre co-incidence, the couple was holidaying last week.

    When McLaughlin quickly figured out that something was afoot in Greensboro, ET sent a crew out to work with her. In the end, though, they didn’t get anything too spectacular.

    McLaughlin said she hasn’t seen security like this since Jennifer Aniston married Brad Pitt.

    In fact, no one seemed to know anything about it until Thursday. That’s the day that local probate judge LaVerne Ogletree issued the marriage licence. And the day that local postman Zack Jarrard delivered a federal express letter addressed to Underwood at the Reynolds Plantation.

    Because it needed a signature, the resort staff didn’t know what to do when the mailman showed up. A few people blurted out that Underwood wasn’t there yet, but eventually a security type told Jarrard that “she’s not coming.”

    Zack wasn’t fooled, but sent the letter back anyway.

    By Saturday, most of the townspeople were certainly aware of the wedding.

    There was a rumour Garth Brooks was in the Publix near the resort (no one can come up with a good explanation as to why). Danielle Gower, the grocery store’s customer service manager, said she’d heard that too. The only problem was she couldn’t find an employee who’d actually seen him.

    And a couple customers accosted a man in the parking lot, accusing him of being Tim McGraw. Alas, he was not. Doesn’t mean that neither of them are not at the wedding, just that no one can confirm they were grocery shopping.

    Others were whispering that they’d heard from people who worked at the Ritz-Carlton resort that all employees were being frisked upon entering, that cellphones were being confiscated and that women were asked to lock their purses in the trunks of their cars.

    With all this going on, it’s difficult to imagine that word didn’t get out sooner. Yes, security is tight. But another reason might be that the Reynolds resort, along with the golf communities around it, more or less operate as their own entities.

    It’s hard to think of them as belonging to the same small town where Carey Williams runs The Herald Weekly his grandfather bought in 1905, or where the McCommon family is moving onto its sixth generation of operating the local funeral home.

    As Bragg of The Yesterday Café explained it, Greene County might be the richest county in Georgia, but when you take away the communities around Lake Oconee, it may be one of the poorest.

    It’s an odd place in some ways, Greensboro. “It’s not normal for a sitting president to come to a small town like this,” Bragg pointed out.

    He’s referring to George W. Bush, who started coming here almost 10 years ago to visit his old friend Mercer Reynold’s place. Not only was Mercer responsible for putting a five-star resort on his family’s old land holdings, he was also Bush’s finance chairman for his last campaign (among many other, powerful, things).

    But probably Greensboro was never a normal town. Mickey Mantel used to come here in the summers because he knew no one would bother him. John Mellencamp likes to stop when he’s passing through.

    Sure, the Underwood-Fisher wedding is a big event.

    “It’s kind of like Christmas,” said Williams, when asked if he thought townspeople were getting tired of being asked about it. “Nothing like this ever happened before.”

    But I’ll bet an entire buttermilk pie that it’ll happen again.
