If you ask us, Lyndsay and Jake's wedding is the perfect intersection of natural elegance and subtle sophistication. The whole story is clear proof that when you hire the right people, really beautiful things happen. With a design concept that's heavily inspired by the old Adirondack great camp and unexpected color palettes that featured forest green, intense red, muted blush, earth tones and navy blue, the groundwork was laid for an incredibly gorgeous day and it is all thanks to Perennia Events. They captured the bride and groom's vision, translated their personal styles to a nature-inspired glamorous rustic wedding that is worth obsessing over. And we've got it all straight from the lens of Jaclyn Schmitz Photography.
Rustic Glam Wedding in New York
There is so much to love about this well-orchestrated romantic affair filled with meaningful touches, such as incorporating Lyndsay and Jake's first date into their wedding day by serving flatbread pizza, using safari animal displays instead of table numbers because the couple studied in Kenya for some time in college, and the surprise number from the groom. Jake wrote a song for Lyndsay as a wedding gift! How sweet! The two envisioned a fun wedding weekend for their family and guests and we truly believe that everyone had a fabulous time! Their wedding photos below exude a highly-charged imagery of rustic wedding elegance and pure perfection. Keep scrolling on to see the entire lovefest!
FROM THE BRIDE: " Our wedding venue drove a lot of our design inspiration. Our ceremony venue was an old log cabin church tucked back into the woods near Upper Saranac Lake (so tucked that you couldn’t see the church from the road) and your reception venue was an old Adirondack great camp that has rustic cabins, woodsy walking paths, and views stretching across the lake towards the Adirondack Mountains. The property is stunning on its own so we wanted a theme and colors that highlighted that natural beauty and the rustic camp vibe, while also elevating the ambiance. We used our favorite colors in our decor, flowers, dresses and suits. Earth tones are our favorite - forest greens, deep reds and navy blues – and we chose accents of light pink, mint, and gold to compliment the woodsy and natural backdrop. For many of our guests it was a long drive to get to the Adirondacks, and we hoped that our venue wouldn’t just be a reception location, but a weekend getaway for family and friends. We wanted our guests to have fun so we had an extended cocktail hour, lawn games like corn hole and canoes and kayaks available for everyone to use! We also wanted our guests to feel comfortable and cozy during the reception, that they were being welcomed to our home for the evening so we accented our venue with decor from our apartment and parents' homes - Maasai blankets from Kenya (where we studied abroad in college), antique jars from Jake's family in Ohio, and childhood photos added that personal and welcoming touch. Even though it was our day, we wanted our guests to feel like it was their day too."
