Today weddings become most touching and personal when they are a representation of the bride and groom…their visions, passions, traditions and sharing it with family and friends.
Annie and Tim incorporated a Traditional Chinese Tea Ceremony where the couple shows respect and gratitude to their parents for all of the years of love and care. The bride had a traditional Chinese dress for this mid day ceremony before changing into a white gown for their lakeside Lake Ceremony.
This couple enjoyed a special post-ceremony date in the Gondola boat, toasting champagne and drifting over the quiet waters of Mirror Lake where the groom trained that morning (a body of water very special to him from Ironman Lake Placid).

You never know what kind of weather you will get in the Adirondacks, but as they often say here “if you don’t like the weather, wait 10 minutes”…
Most of this wedding day was lovely, and guests were out hiking and playing golf, right around ceremony time the skies darkened, and out came the white umbrellas. The dark sky was the perfect juxtaposition to the yellow and orange cheerful floral pallet. Note the creative circular alter piece constructed by Black Sheep Gardens Floral Design.
Luckily this bride and groom were very go-with-the-flow as were all of the guests. Our dedicated staff was on hand to pass out the umbrellas mid ceremony when the threatening sky gave way to summer showers. As soon as the storm rolled past the mountains, we were still able to reset the cocktail hour and hold it outdoors, luckily, because here guests could enjoy the extraordinary rainbow show punctuating the mountain skyline. A very happy ending... or beginning.
