It’s your big day. You’ve completed the hard part, finding someone you want to spend the rest of your life with. Now, the wedding. Whether you live in the region or you’re planning your dream destination wedding, the Lake George Area is famously picturesque and has everything you need, from venues to vendors, to plan a perfect wedding. In this three-part series on the Lake George Area blog, we’ll walk you through some of the amazing resources available to help you plan the happiest day of your life.

The Ceremony

One of the first steps in the wedding planning process is booking the venue. Whether your dream is a mountaintop ceremony overlooking an unforgettable view of the Adirondacks or an historic venue with beautiful gardens, there’s something for you here. For the perfect outdoor setting, try Forest Lake Camp, Top of the World Golf Resort, or Gore Mountain. A fan of rustic charm? The Promise Gardens of the Adirondacks is for you! The Inn at Erlowest, The Queensbury Hotel, The Sagamore, and the Great Escape Lodge will all satisfy even the most discerning bride looking for a classic hotel venue. If you’re interested in a truly unique Lake George setting, considering having your ceremony with the Lake George Steamboat Company.

The Reception

Although many ceremony venues allow you to hold your reception on the premises, there are many local restaurants who will gladly provide you and your guests with an unforgettable reception experience. The Algonquin in Bolton Landing offers a special occasion menu that allows you to customize your courses to fit your exact preferences. The Chateau on the Lake offers both weddings and receptions, and the location cannot be beat!
