Congrats! That area is so beautiful in the summer (the Fiance is from the region). I’m getting married in Rochester next summer. Reception in Churchville. Can’t wait!

I’m getting married in Little Falls, NY – Outskirts of the Adirondak park, Mohawk Valley.  We are having an October wedding – hoping the foliage will be intense.  I’m a CNY Native, Cortland area.  We searched from the Finger Lakes to the Thousand Islands before settleing on our venue.  Hope it all comes together.

Hey Everyone!

I’m originally from Utica, Mr. Radish is from Potsdam.  We both used to live in Buffalo (which is where we met) and we got married in Syracuse… so we kind of have all of our Upstate bases covered. 

We live in Chicago now. 

Any other Utica or Syracuse girls here?

I live in New York City but am getting married in July in Grafton, NY (about 20 minutes east of Troy, NY). We’re having a laid-back BBQ with swimming, horsehoes, and basketball.

 Would love to know what vendors people are using!

Hi ladies!

 I’m excited about this board!  I currently live in Boston, but moving to Baltimore MD soon… but grew up and went to college in CNY, and will be getting married in Skaneateles, a little town in the Fingerlakes near Syracuse.  Yay CNY!

Hey Shailer,

Skaneateles is beautiful!  What venue will you be using?

Hi Radish-

 Thanks for the message!  Skaneateles is where I grew up (and my parents, too!), and we’ll be getting married at a B&B with a carriage barn called Frog Pond B&B.  So excited!  Where did you get married?

I’ve never heard of that, but I did look at a few places in Skaneateles like the Sherwood Inn.  It’s so pretty out there.

I got married in Syracuse and had our reception at the Wellington House in Fayetteville.

Hi Toucan!

 For our rehearsal dinner we’re doing Dino BBQ. I couldn’t resist. Mmmm 🙂 I’m  going to have to drink a TON of water though, because it’s soooo salty.

MMMM, BBQ….

Sorry, haven’t eaten dinner yet.   ..::salivates::.. 

We live in Ithaca and are getting married at the Fontainebleau Inn in Alpine, which is SW on Route 13 between Ithaca and Watkins Glen. It’s close to both Seneca and Cayuga Lakes but is actually on CayuTa Lake – I have to tell people every time that I do mean to say "T" instead of "G!"  

As for vendors, the wedding is being catered by Word of Mouth (two very very cool women in Trumansburg, who are using my grandpa’s chocolate beet cake recipe to make our cupcakes/cake), and the "flower-lady" is Audrey Norberg from Plenty of Posies – she has a stand at the Ithaca Market and grows most of the flowers on her farm. Our photographer is Laura Kozlowski, who recently moved to Ithaca from Boston (as did we), and Rabbi David Regenspan is officiating. We found online an article he wrote about why he performs interfaith weddings and under what circumstances, and I felt like it described us really well. He’s a little quirky and has a son who’s an Oberlin alum, just like me, so I thought that was a good sign.  My dress is being made by Chrissy Wai-Ching in Seattle, which is about as un-local as I could get, but I just couldn’t resist…

Right now we’re looking for a mellow rehearsal dinner space in the area (preferably near Alpine, since a lot of the guests will be staying closer to there than to Ithaca) that’s pretty inexpensive. Most of our guests will actually be at the Rehearsal Dinner because most of them are from out of town.

 

Oh my gd, sorry, foaming at the mouth.
