Just like offices, stores, restaurants, traveling — and, well, everything else — weddings have completely changed in 2020. But couples don't need to sacrifice when they get married at Saranac Waterfront Lodge.
The new lakeside resort, opening later this fall in the Adirondack region, offers gorgeous ceremony and reception settings for elopements and microweddings, start-to-finish planning services, and access to some of the area's best vendors — all while prioritizing guest safety at every step. The entire property was designed and built with cleaning and distancing protocols in mind from the beginning.
The pandemic-friendly celebration begins by choosing a destination wedding spot that doesn't require flights. Saranac Lake, New York, is within driving distance of almost anywhere in New England and offers the never-ending beauty of the Adirondacks. Imagine a dream wedding day at Saranac Waterfront Lodge, from a picture-perfect ceremony until the last cocktail.
Saying ‘I Do' With Lake Views
Whether the guest list is five or 50, there's no backdrop like Lake Flower and the surrounding mountains. Choose from several beautiful ceremony sites on the hotel grounds. Local florists can help frame the landscape even more: Try a lush arch of seasonal blooms from Little Farmhouse Flowers or a dramatic designer piece from Black Sheep Gardens.
For the reception, indoor and outdoor options are available. Dine at long tables set up on the lawn by the water, or enjoy a more intimate meal in the 24-seat Wine Bar. There's also a glamorous lake-view ballroom with plenty of space to encourage social distancing during the celebration.
Dining on First-Class Wedding Cuisine
Regardless of the meal's setting, couples take advantage of the exquisite cuisine of Saranac Waterfront Lodge. They'll get custom, farm-inspired menus from executive chef David Gross, as well as private tastings. The onsite culinary, service, and planning teams bring decades of combined experience in producing exquisite, successful events around the world.
Couples will want to make sure to capture every moment of the reception — and the whole day — with the help of talented local photographers such as Ernst & Co., Mountainaire Gatherings, and Due West Photography> and more. The event managers at Saranac Waterfront Lodge can also offer recommendations for other vendors, making destination wedding planning as easy as possible.
Reveling in Newlywed Happiness
Time for the honeymoon! Skip the flights and head straight for the hotel's amazing Bridal Suite. It comes complete with walkout patio, cozy fireplace, romantic soaking tub, and the best views of the lake and mountains. Wedding guests also get to experience the incredible hospitality of Saranac Waterfront Lodge, with a choice of stylish, comfortable, and safe accommodations.
For group activities or couple bonding, the property offers plenty of activities to fill leisurely days after (or before) the wedding. Try kayaking and boating on Lake Flower, hiking along the mountain trails, skiing the nearby slopes, swimming in the heated pool, and more.
