Creative Mountain Wedding in Lake Placid, New York: Carolyn + Max

Lake Placid Wedding

A lavender mohawk, blue wedding booties, a crystal crown, and all the best details you can imagine. That’s what you’ll find in Carolyn + Max’s amazing wedding celebration feature today. These two worked with some amazing vendors to pull off an event that left no stone, or should we say decor element, unturned. With florals + design by Renaissance Floral Design, logistics + planning by Christine WheatNorthwood Events and Cindy Byno, C + M had a support team behind their day that proves that when the right creatives come together, magic can really happen!

Carolyn + Max share, We had lots of input on decor of the day – I chose my favorite flowers for the ceremony, and great mix-match furniture for the cocktail hour (we’re not big fans of white-everything for weddings, or matchy-matchy, so we were glad to put together some cool decor). One of the biggest notes of the day was one of our favorite bands was present for the reception, making the whole night feel truly tailored to us with music we enjoy – live!

Thanks so much to Dixie Pixel for sending these amazing images our way!

Our Favorite Memory From The Wedding

Probably walking down the aisle after the ceremony was finished, arm in arm, and getting in the little red truck feeling that “official” feeling. Just the two of us, it was a small moment to ourselves and a breather from all the events during a day that went so fast. It was all smiles and clinking glasses after that!

Cocktail hour was staged in a tent adorned with vintage furniture and guests enjoyed custom drinks while snacking on charcuterie + lobster.

Our Advice To Those Planning Now

Get a wedding planner! And all the help you can get. I would have been pulling my hair out without it all - most of my ‘worries’ weren’t even worry-worthy. You will want to think about all the fun stuff - music, food, decor. The planner can help you with all the logistics and get the nitty gritty work done (hotels, transport, etc.). In the end, there's so much to take in that tasks may get forgotten without help from others.
