Who’s at Carrie Underwood’s wedding?

Names floating around the Web of who is at Carrie Underwood’s wedding today at 5 p.m. at Reynolds Plantation in Greensboro: Paula Abdul (who was in Peachtree City Friday for “Drop Dead Diva” taping), Faith Hill, Tim McGraw (left), Garth Brooks. MJ says David Cook was spotted, too.

The Ottawa Citizen has a reporter and photographer around town but they can’t get inside. It sounds like an unnamed publication has exclusive access to photos inside Reynolds Plantation, which is blocked off from any outsiders this weekend. My guess: People magazine.

I”m kind of glad I’m not out there because it sounds like it would be a largely fruitless (and hot) affair. Private security kept them off the private road leading to the hotel and cops kept them off the public roads after 90 minutes of taking  limos rolling in.

My source said yesterday at noon he’d be inside the complex last night but have not heard from him since. I’m not sure if he’s paranoid he might be caught or if cel phones/iPhones are being confiscated at the entrance. I wouldn’t be surprised if they did that.

UPDATE (3:09 p.m.): Remember Lindsey Cardinale? The Ottawa Citizen live blog has someone speculating the former “Idol” contestant is a bridesmaid. A lot of country acts have pre-scheduled concerts tonight so can’t make it e.g. Brad Paisley, Keith Urban, Miranda Lambert, Rascal Flatts. Her buddy Kellie Pickler is set to perform in Madison, N.D. tonight.

And at about 3 p.m., the Ottawa reporter Joanne Chianello and her photographer Chris Mikula got a nice couple to take them on a boat out on Lake Oconee and get them in sight of the resort. Good for them! They were able to see guests by the lakeside from about 50 meters away. She said there are about 14 boats with her. Looks like the cops are not trying to shoo people away from the water. Then again, the wedding looks to be inside, as my source said Thursday.

  • Mindy and I think there’s no way the wedding is outdoors. There’s nothing set up, and the rain is on and off and there are a bunch of boats loitering just off the shore. Who would risk that?
    Also, more and more people are going inside – must be time to get ready!

UPDATED: 4:28 p.m. Cadillac Jack of Kicks fame sent out this Twitpic from above in a helicopter. He just confirmed to me that indeed he is in the sky via text message at 4:31 p.m.

At 4:46 p.m., 14 minutes before the wedding was scheduled to start, he posted this on Twitter:

We have landed safely back at Briscoe Field. My intent was never to disrupt Carrie and Mike’s day. I wish them nothing but the best

At 4:56 p.m.: Checked the Tweets of Paula Abdul and David Cook. Both have been on Twitter but neither are indicated where they are.

Mercedes: From the Julianne Hough thread, loved your mention of the Sackville-West/Nicolson alliance. They also were both brilliant gardeners and garden writers and their estate, Sissinghurst, is said to be one of the world’s finest.

Those Victorians knew how to burn those candles ALL the way down!

Well, Deirdre has redeemed herself in my eyes and now holds a perfect record in recommending good books! “The Passage” took off on page 253, and I can already tell “people” (hubby, dog, cat) will have to get their own dinners tonight; I’m reading.

Rosita, I’ve been to Sissinghurst and it truly is an out of this world place! My favorite was the White Garden, which is supposed to be enjoyed at night. There was an article last week in the New York Times about Nigel’s son poking about at Sissinghurst.

Guess we’ll have to wait for People mag next week, unless swedding pics leak out.

Cadillac is there and he was not invited, but hew says he doesn’t want to ruin their day. Well then why did you Caddy do some flyovers and the other lady reporting was on a Boat. So people that contributed to the post were there uninvited. I thought Rodney was going to post a list of all the well known guest.

From what I can tell, she IS getting married in peace. No one can get near the place. Even the helicopters don’t have a view.

BTW…did anyone notice it’s Saturday and no zzzzzzzzzzzzz! ? Speaking of idiot trolls.

Deidre & KJ how can some person be a troll if they read the paper and want to comment? There is a comment space so people can use it. You 2 don’t run the blog so I guess you are trolls to. This isn’t your personal blog so you are not in charge of who can comment. If you 2 want that power then start your own blog and maybe AJC will give you power and pay you. Good BYE.

At least the zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzs don’t reveal the stupidity of the poster… I’ll take annoyance any day over stupyness.

PoaD…I didn’t call you a troll. I just disagreed with you. I thought that was ok in this country but…times have changed, apparently.

Oh…sorry PoaD…when I said that about trolls I was talking about a poster who’s whole purpose was to annoy other posters. That poster’s IP address has been blocked because he annoyed Rodney. Nothing against you. You’re opinion is as valid as anyone else’s around here.

“how can some person be a troll if they read the paper and want to comment?”

You apparently don’t even know the meaning of “troll”, but that’s not surprising. I don’t want “power”, I just want Coxnet to offer an “ignore user” feature so I don’t have to read incoherent ramblings from life-losers like you.

“You’re opinion is as valid as anyone else’s around here.”

Deirdre, you obviously aren’t familiar with his “work” on the other blogs, especially anything related to UGA.

KJ…no I’m not familiar with him. But I never said anything to him so I kinda resent the implication that I did. And until I do know him better, everyone’s opinion is valid even if it is annoying.

I suggest you use the “report this comment” feature. It frequently works except on weekends when no one appears to be home. I have also appealed to the blog author, who sometimes settles the problem.

Public roads? And yet the public wasn’t allowed to use them because a celebrity was in the area? How is that public again?

the road blocked off is linger longer road and security was set at the crossroad of gatehouse drive, how do i know this? an attempt at a peaceful lake weekend. the people who OWN homes should be able to enjoy their property and not have to bow down to a bunch of american idols. who would choose lake oconee in the middle of july for a high profile wedding? i hope they get stuck in the I-20 west traffic when they go back to catch their flights, i didn’t enjoy dealing with the traffic they created.

actually i don’t thing the wedding was MEANT to be “high profile” — and anyone who has that much cash flow is welcome to inject it into the relatively local economy — it’s only a freaking day, or two days, folks, and it is HER choice where and when to spend the money for HER wedding. Sheesh.

Since David Cook HAS been in Georgia for “something other than Carrie’s wedding” that statement, rrp, is a little naive.

and thanks y’all for the condolences — we’re back home and doing as well as can be expected.

and once again, to those oh-so-high-and-mighty trollers who think that by saying we’re stupid (or whatever) for reading and commenting an an AI blog — um. hello. you just did. *head shaking*…

how about some caramel corn? i got tired of the buttery kind.

catch you guys later/tomorrow

Of course David Cook was at the wedding…and I am sure he was in Georgiz for no other reason than to be at Carrie’s wedding…They are like AI BFFs…seriously. They have become really good friends. I am glad that he was able to go…no wonder he hasn’t tweeted in a couple of days…all hush hush

i saw tim mcgraw in concert last night in northern virginia. he came on stage at 9:00 pm. So he must’ve missed most of the reception, if the wedding was a 5:00 to fly back to virginia for the concert. also note, that one of his daughters came out on stage with him, so i’m doubting that Faith was in Georgia partying it up at this wedding while Tim’s performing in northern virginia, with the kids in tow. just saying…

I wanted a room for my birthday on July 10, couldn’t get it so stayed on July 9th. Had a great time but didn’t see anyone. Everyone was getting ready for the wedding. I think it’s great she had her wedding out here. I’ve lived here for 21yrs and I don’t mind the money this is putting into our county.
