Upstate NY Weddings: Lake George

Next on the list for our Upstate weddings thread is Lake George. This may be our favorite (and most upstate) place to have a wedding during the summer season. Mountains, Beaches, Lakes and a lively downtown – what isn’t there to love?!

The Perfect Get Away….

Our favorite place to see couples get married in this area is the Courtyard by Marriott Lake George. It’s located on the main strip of Lake George Village, right across the street from the lake…literally! The hotel was just recently built in 2016 so everything is clean, beautiful and up to date. The hotel is tastefully Adirondack Rustic themed; so you’ll be sure to get into the local feel during your time at the hotel.

This isn’t your typical hotel. First of all you have a PRIME location. We’re talking absolutely no need for transportation because you are within walking distance of everything! The beach – walk across the street. Bars – a 2 minute walk to some crazy fun late night bars right on the water. For the music lovers, there’s an amphitheater on the water that hosts local bands and festivals throughout the season. Just step out the front door for some amazing and quirky restaurants and shops lining the main strip.

If you’re the outdoorsy type this is definitely the place for you. A week or a weekend in Lake George will satisfy your desire for outdoor fun. Hiking, biking, boating, zip-lining, mini-golfing…you name it, Lake George has got it! For those who prefer indoor fun, there’s plenty for you here too – wine tasting, museums, historical tours and visits to the spa. When you come the village there is no shortage of things to do, taste and see!

The second thing to love about this Marriott is the hotel itself! As I mentioned, it’s new, big and gorgeous. When you say “I do” you have the pleasure of standing on the hotels spacious rooftop deck with a gorgeous view overlooking the lake. After the ceremony is finished you have your choice of taking photos in the Adirondack hotel, fun downtown pictures, and of course the ever classic pictures in front of the boats on the lake. For the couple who loves being outside during the day, and staying up partying all night this is your Adirondack escape!

Winter Wonderland

There isn’t much time left in this summer season, but winter in Lake George is nothing to be sad about. Lake George may not be the crazy tourist attraction it is during the summer, but that’s just because the locals didn’t let anyone in on the secret…Lake George winters are unbeatable! When the Lake freezes over, this opens a world of opportunity for winter wonderland activities. Skating, ice fishing, skiing at local mountains, Porta-Potty races (you’ll have to come to see this one for yourself)….and so much more!

You and your friends and family will love being upstate for your wedding this winter; you’ll get to experience the village the way the locals do. Partying day and night at ice bars, warming up by the fire with friends for good drinks and even better laughs, enjoying the beauty of the Adirondacks, and of course saying “I do”. All you need to make this winter tolerable is to get up to Lake George, grab your furriest coat and a cup of hot chocolate (make that spiked hot chocolate), and start making memories with your new hubby.
