@Irishker03: I am getting married in Geneva, check out Club 86 for doing the cake. They do pretty nice ones, I bet they’d do cupcakes, too.

I am ordering my flowers online and arranging myself, so can’t help you there. I have heard good things about Wegman’s as florist though! We are using Wegmans Canandaigua to cater.

We hired someone from Craigslist for photography, we have a small budget. But before realizing how expensive photograhy is, we were loving on Dawn’s Photography from Pittsford.

I live in Ithaca and we had our reception at The Lodge at Welch Allyn in Skaneateles, NY. I didn’t have a single complaint the whole night. The venue is gorgeous, the food is absolutely amazing (I got tons and tons of food compliements!), and Paula and her staff of bartenders, chefs, etc. make things seem absolutely seemless. Couldn’t have asked for more!

bluebutterfly,

I’m jealous! I want a vineyard wedding SO bad and there are TONS in the Upstate/CNY/WNY region that are so beautiful and affordable. Sigh. But I’m originally from NYC and having a wedding there. NYC Vineyard Weddings (Long Island) not so affordable. Frown

I’m a CNY bride too! I’m getting married next May at Taughannock Falls State Park just outside of Ithaca, NY. Fiance is from the area, and I’ve bounced all around NY in the last few years. We’re living in Horseheads now, hoping to buy a place outside Ithaca or Watkins Glen area.

I live in Atlanta, but grew up in Skaneateles. My fiance is from Cleveland, but his family has a summer cottage in ithaca (by Ludlowville Falls), so we are having a small family wedding there this summer.

If anyone is looking for photogs, here are some links to a few who I loved (sadly, they are not available on my date!):

Does anyone have recommendations on caterers and rentals (tent, tables, lighting)? Anyone find chiavari chairs for less than $8 a piece??

we live in cortland, but I work in ithaca. 

 

@IthacaBride09–how many people did you have.  I was looking into the Lodge, but we are only having 75 people and it seems too big.

anyone with any good ideas for a smaller venue?  We were looking into the wineries, but can’t make the guaranteed number considering it is going to be so small. 

thanks in advance..it’s hard to know where to start.

@sauquoit – I grew up in Skan, and I had our reception at the Lodge…but we had 145.  The venue is large, but its definitely not too large for 75 people.  I had a WONDERFUL experience there

 

As for wineries, Anyela’s Vineyard accommodates between 50-75 max, check them out.  PM me for more info!

I’m also a bride in the area.  I’m a grad student at Cornell.  Fiance and I are getting married at Knapp Vineyard June 12.  🙂  Send me a message Ithaca brides if you would like to meet up and chat weddings.  What are you all doing for an officiant?  That is our one big thing left to get in place…
