Alex & CarolynBurlap & BeamsThe Rustic Charm of Vintage Barns in the Adirondacks

Burlap & Beams is one of my favorite locations for a wedding. The rustic barns and the view of the mountains is absolutely stunning! And Terri is the BEST host anyone could ask for. The love and devotion she has put into her wonderful space is apparent from the first moment you step foot onto the property.

Here is Carolyn’s take on the day:

June 18th, 2016 was the perfect day with absolutely gorgeous weather, a high of 85 degrees with a slight breeze. We met down at Lake George Beach for photos before the wedding with a trip up to Prospect Mountain for more photos with our wedding party. We really enjoyed spending this time with our wedding party relaxing a little before the wedding and busyness of the reception. From Prospect Mountain we drove back to St. Cecilia’s Catholic church in Warrensburg for a beautiful ceremony at a very unique and intimate church. Finally we ended our night at Burlap and Beams for happy hour, dinner, and an evening of dancing, lawn games and late night tasty treats. It was our dream wedding!

A few memorable memories from the evening:
– Rock climbing/champagne at the top of Prospect Mountain.
– Cutting the cake at the wedding when we realized half way through the night that we forgot to. It was just us and Eric spontaneously cutting the cake and having a blast in the moment.
– Stepping out of the barn and seeing all of our guests truly enjoying themselves. There was something for everyone at the reception from smoking cigars, to playing bocce ball, to dancing, to lounging in one of the barns.
– Dancing in the barn at one of the coolest and most unique venues!!
– Lastly, it was a joy seeing Eric have a good time at the wedding. We were fortunate to have a photographer whose personality matched up with ours.

Katherine & MichaelWheatleighA Florentine Palazzo in the Berkshires

Katherine and Michael celebrated their love surrounded by friends and family and the absolutely majestic setting of one of my favorite venues anywhere, Wheatleigh.

Wheatleigh is an idyllic setting for any wedding, from a weekend celebration to a midweek getaway or a Sunday afternoon gathering. A Florentine palazzo atop a Berkshire knoll overlooking mountains and lake, Wheatleigh offers exquisite cuisine and guest accommodations, along with 22 private acres and terraced lawns.

A staircase lit by brilliant Tiffany windows leads to the Great Hall, porticos face rolling hills, and century old trees overhang the sculpture garden. All conspire to create an atmosphere that is at once intimate and grand.

Enjoy Wheatleigh as your own private estate for a weekend of festivities, from the prenuptial party, to the wedding dinner, to the farewell brunch. Chef Jeffrey Thompson will craft unique menus for every event. With attention to each detail and incomparable service from the first tasting through the departure of the last guest, Wheatleigh’s European trained staff will create the extraordinary wedding you envision.

Only two and a half hours by car from New York and Boston, there is no more romantic wedding destination than Wheatleigh.
