Make the Perfect Plan and Adapt!
This couple selected the Mountain House in Keene for their special day. They wanted an outdoor space to feel immersed in nature with nature all around. The bride had selected a clear frame tent punctuated with large greenery chandeliers. As we often do a week-out, our planning team started looking at the forecast and instead of worrying about rain we had to anticipate the forecasted heat wave of high 90 degree temperatures. Time to adapt, let’s go team, step one, call rental company and see if we can change from clear tent to sailcloth tent (clear tents can have a greenhouse/warming effect)— Yes!
Step two, the new tent design warrants a new floral design, not the planned chandeliers, so second call was to the florist who so graciously and willingly changed some of her floral order and totally changed her design plan for the tent. A face-time call upon installation of tent on Wednesday allowed her to get the perfect measurements and design down for her install team on Saturday am.
End of story, bride liked this adapted design even more than her original design, and the tent and added rental fans kept the tent nice and cool, and oh-so beautiful. View wedding gallery by Mountainaire Gatherings Photography.
Rain and Rainbows
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.

Spectacular September Wedding
Gold Medal Gratitude
As a follow-up to the recent "Pop Up Wedding", we received this gracious note from the parents of the bride:
Wedding Hat Trick!
Eleven years ago I collaborated with a family to plan their daughter's wedding. Six years later we met again to create another beautiful wedding for another daughter. Fast forward to this past Saturday, a spectacular day in the Adirondacks, where their son was married in a breathtaking meadow setting. I love repeat business when I get to see and work with a family I have come to love and who has treated me like family.
