Lake Placid Wedding Photographer

Lake Placid, best known as the two-time host of the Winter Olympics, is a quaint village nestled in the Adirondack Mountains of New York.  Although this alpine village is a mecca for skiers when the snow flies, the summer months actually accentuate the beauty of this town.  While most newbies to the area mistakenly think that the beautiful lake that rests next to the village is Lake Placid, Mirror Lake is the centerpiece of this town.  With two gorgeous lakes and the largest state park in the United States, Adirondack Park, it’s no wonder Lake Placid is such an utterly serene location for a destination wedding. 

The nice thing about hosting a wedding in the Lake Placid area is the option of being as rustic or chic as one may desire, or a combination of both. There is a wide array of wedding venues from campgrounds to historic inns to glamorous ballroom resorts.  The cozy Adirondack theme adds a level of intimacy and comfort to your wedding that brings people together.

The Whiteface Lodge is a top choice for your Adirondack wedding.  Opened in 2005, the Whiteface Lodge combines gorgeous modern amenities with the old fashioned feel of an Adirondack camp.  It has earned many accolades from various travel magazines and truly is one of the most enchanting and gorgeous resorts in the northeast.  This all-suite hotel is excellent  for guests and families and boasts an indoor movie theater, bowling alley, and ice cream shop.  In the winter, you can enjoy ice skating and snow shoeing right on this beautiful property.  The venue options are diverse, and your personal wedding planner helps with making these choices. 

The Whiteface Lodge is not to be confused with the Whiteface Club and Resort.  This highly desirable wedding location has been voted the Best of Weddings since 2012 and for a good reason.  With a ceremony site that sits on the shores of Lake Placid, the Whiteface Club and Resort is pure serenity. 

An equally gorgeous venue is the Lake Placid Club, which is owned and operated by the Crowne Plaza Resort and Golf Club.  With phenomenal views of the Adirondacks, High Peaks, and Mirror Lake, this location is top-notch.  Whether you desire a small intimate wedding or a grand affair, the Lake Placid Club can accommodate in one of their several locations.  If the spectacular views are not enough to wow your guests, the outstanding food certainly will be. 


Lake Placid Lodge, the only hotel located directly on the shores of Lake Placid, was built by hand in the arts and crafts style.  Rich in history, this lodge was rebuilt in 2005 after a massive fire.  Although relatively new in age, it was built in the reminiscent era of a time long gone.  Weddings at the Lake Placid Lodge are spectacular.  With unbridled views and a focus on the farm-to-table menu, your guests will be privy to an elegant, and yet down to earth, wedding.  One thing to note in planning your wedding here is that children must be 12 years old to stay at the lodge.

Lake Placid is certainly a destination wedding location and the foodie guests will not be disappointed with the vast array of dining options.   In addition to the fine dining options located at the resorts, there are a number of additional choices for your hungry guests.  The View Restaurant at Mirror Lake Inn will provide one of the finest views in the Lake Placid area.  If you are lucky enough to get a window table, you will feel as though you are sitting right on the lake.  This cozy restaurant is the perfect spot for a special occasion dinner or drink.  For a bit more casual dining event, but with more originality, try Smoke Signals or Liquids and Solids.  The Lake Placid Pub and Brewery is another option where you can’t go wrong.

With the number of great restaurants, things to do for both outdoor enthusiasts and those who like to be pampered, and the number of amazing lodging options, Lake Placid is certainly a great choice when it comes to vacations or weddings.  In fact, you  might love it so much that you will decide to stay and honeymoon!
