How did you meet? Do you have a special proposal story? We met in NYC but we actually fell in love in Lake George! Mark has been coming to Lake George for 4th of July all of his life & we’ve kept that tradition together since. Our first date was actually in Lake George and we’ve been together since. Days before we got engaged, we just came back from the beautiful Amalfi coast but Mark knew that there is no place more special to us than Lake George so he proposed right in Lake George on Sagamore’s Morgan boat! It was perfect!
What are your wedding colors and/or themes? We wanted a romantic garden style with tones of pinks/ peach, greenery and hints of yellow surrounded by candles.
Did you incorporate any fun themes/motifs or design elements?
Although we were getting married in Lake George we wanted touches of our Polish roots to be throughout the wedding: we had handmade vases imported from Poland with the placement cards, traditional poppy flowers for cocktail hour, a pierogi station at cocktail hour, band included a Polish singer and our after-party DJ was Polish.
What is your inspiration when planning your wedding? We’re a couple that loves to have fun so we really wanted the atmosphere to be welcoming. Our priority was for people to enjoy themselves and dance all night. Everything came out perfect and as cheesy as it sounds, we knew the day would be perfect because no matter how the weather or décor turned out, we were just so excited about becoming one in the place where it all began. The enthusiasm of our dear friends and family was really the driving energy of room.
Is there anything else you’d like to share? Honestly, it’s been a blast working with Luke, Renaissance Floral Designs and the Sagamore team! Our weekend has really turned into a fairy tale we’ve always imagined.
