  • Wedding: August 2007 - The Wellington House in Fayetteville, NY

GorgesViola –

Mr. Radish was in his friend’s wedding at the Fountainbleau Inn a couple of years ago.  It was lovely!  It’s so beautiful there and from what I recall, everything went very smoothly. 

They had their Rehearsal Dinner at the Watkins Glen State Park at one of the pavilions. A lot of the Out of Town guests were staying at some lodge/hotel place that was right near there so it worked very well.

Mrs. Radish, yay! I’m so glad you’ve been to a wedding at the Fb. It was the only venue we visited in person but just felt like the right place. I like that it’s family-run but they do a LOT of weddings, so it feels personal but has the routine down.

I would love to do something at a park but am worried about the weather/cold factor, since it’s in late October. I wonder if those pavilions are heated at all… that would be so awesome.

Cyd, I love your story!!!

Hi everyone! I’m in Buffalo, NY and we’re getting married at a downtown hotel, it’s the one thing I really wanted, especially since it’s a winter wedding. You really can’t take advantage of all the gorgeous mansions around here in the snow 🙂

Hey everyone! I’m actually a Tampa, Fl bride but I was born in raised in Syracuse, NY. Reading this board makes me miss home so much!! (My dad lives in upstate NY still!) A side note about Dino BBQ… my mom and stepdad (who now live in Tampa but both grew up in Syracuse) love it so much that they used to order the BBQ sauce and have it shipped to them by the boxful! Lucky for those of us transplanted to the South, Albertson’s (just like Wegman’s) carries Dino BBQ sauce!! My fiance who was born and raised in St. Pete, Fl didn’t understand my obsession until he tried it and now he’s hooked too!!! Congrats and good luck to everyone planning a wedding up there!!

Hi girls!  I’ve been reading Weddingbee for a few months now thanks to the advice of a great friend, but after I found this post for WNY/CNY brides I just had write my first post.   I admit that I technically grew up in PA, just across the boarder from Elmira, NY,  but my wedding is taking place this September at Logan Ridge, 10 mins north of Watkins Glen on Seneca Lake.  My hometown didn’t have enough options for hosting our event, so the Finger Lakes seemed like the perfect mini vacation for all of our out of town friends and a close drive for my family still in PA.   Best of luck to all my fellow bride-to-bees!

Cyd- Boldt Castle is absolutely gorgeous! Great choice. I love the 2 day wedding idea. Be sure to post pics when its all said and done 🙂

I’m lucky enough to have family with property right on the St. Lawerence River. I’ll be getting married in Ogdensburg in the summer of ’09. I’m having trouble finding vendors up there though. I don’t know if it would be easier to go across the border to Ontario instead? anyone have any ideas? I need to find a rental company that does tents, tables, chairs, etc. in that area.

Hello all!

 

My fiance and I are both Upstate NY natives (Me – Fredonia, him – Grand Island).  We live in Newport Beach, CA now and are planning our wedding long distance UGH!!  So far so good though….thanks to the internet!  We are having our reception at the Buffalo Launch Club in Grand Island.  It’s a beautiful site right on the water and has a beautiful lighthouse and docks too! Lots of space for kids etc. 

I am a bargain hunter extraordinaire!  If anyone is having trouble finding something don’t hesitate to ask.  I have scoured the internet!

Good luck and happy planning!!

I am getting married in East Aurora, and our reception is at the Roycroft Inn.  I was originally thinking of the Finger Lakes region, as my mom lives there, and was THIS close to booking the Fontainebleau.  Great choice, GorgesViola!

Congrats to you all!

Hi everyone,

 

Im definitely new to wedding bee. I think my F and I have finally convinced the families that Lake George, NY is the best place for our wedding in october, 2010. I am originally from VT, now living in Utah, and my sweetie is from ithaca. We’re hoping for an adirondack feel, with some simple elegance, to make everyone happy. 

 

If anyoen has any experience with Lake Geroge weddings, we would LOVE to hear about it. At the moment our leading candidate is the Lodges at Cresthaven. A little but like summer camp, with things to do (since we are sort of doing a whole "weekend" with virtually everyon being from out of town). 

 

Also, we’re doing an "interfaith" thing. I’m jewish and he’s, well, not much. He’s into having a Rabbi, and we found a great one down in Fishkill, but if anyone has ideas further north, that would be great, too. 

 

Thanks in advance!

@ lynniearudner: We are also an interfaith couple and were married in Rochester, NY, in February.  We worked with two officiants.  The Rabbi is in Porter Corners (Saratoga Springs area), which is definitely closer to Lake George than Fishkill, NY.  His name is Rabbi Laurence Aryeh Alpern and his website is http://www.rabbiweddings.com/.

Edit: As for the rest of this topic, we were married at the Interfaith Chapel at the University of Rochester and had our reception at Mario’s Italian Steakhouse.
