There are so many incredible wedding venues in the Adirondacks, from little towns along the water, to mountain getaways. But one of our favorites is Hotel Saranac! Last fall, Gina and Brian had a beautiful wedding at this hotel, right on their rooftop. This sweet couple had so many handmade touches, including the ceremony arch that Brian built himself! The couple also incorporated so many unique colors, like the brides mustard yellow heels, to the pops of orange in her bouquet, and even Brian’s polka dot bowtie.
We absolutely love Gina & Brian’s first look that took place on the property of the Hotel Saranac. You don’t have to venture far for gorgeous photos in the adirondacks!
Saranac is a small town nestled in the Adirondacks, with the Saranac River flowing right through town. It’s also close to Lake Placid, which is just 20 minutes away. We love shooting in the Adirondacks, including the shores of Lake Placid! The walkable downtown Saranac Lake offers amazing art galleries, shopping, and lots of restaurants. The Riverwalk and lakes make it the perfect vacation for guests as well!
