We’re extremely proud to share this beautiful Lake Placid Club wedding, complete with epic views and a classic Adirondack feel. Kelly narrates us in the beginning before we view the beautiful photos. Enjoy!
What are your wedding colors and/or themes?
For our wedding colors, we choose deep reds, creams, and lush greenery. We paired the colors with an abundance of birch wood to play off the rustic, mountain vibe of the venue.
What is your inspiration when planning your wedding?
When planning our wedding, we were inspired by the many dynamic views that Lake Placid has to offer. We fell in love with the views from our venue which captured the mountain scenery, Olympic ski jumps and bobsled track.
Did you incorporate any fun themes/motifs or design elements?
We wanted to keep the rustic mountain theme throughout the spaces, so we included traditional Adirondack pack baskets with flowers for the ceremony, lots of Adirondack chairs set up around the venue and fire pit for our guests to enjoy the views (and make a s’mores or two). And we played off the giant antler chandeliers the venue has by including antler designs in all of our invitations and reception materials.
Did you include any special traditions, old or new?
We included a tree planting unity ceremony which would allow us to bring a piece of Lake Placid home to plant in our yard and watch grow. I also had a piece of both my mother’s and grandmother’s wedding dresses sewn into my dress as something old.
Why did you choose Lake Placid?
We fell in love with Lake Placid after visiting for a winter hockey tournament and it was at the forefront of our minds as we began the search for our venue. I always wanted a rustic upstate wedding, and with family in Canada and New Jersey, it was the perfect halfway meeting place for everyone!
Is there anything else you’d like to share?
Our wedding day was flawless with all the help from our vendors and C+W team. We could not have imagined a more perfect day surrounded by friends and family! Thanks again!!
