Yes, Adirondack can be chic.
So proved Melissa & Sean at their winter wedding on the north shore of Long Island. The duo spends most of their winter weekends bonding on the slopes at their ski house and various trips to luxury winter locales from Telluride to Lake Placid and Beaver Creek.
It was only natural to them that they host their wedding in the month of December. Carefully infused with luxurious winter details--from pinecones, amaryllis and lanterns in the eclectic table settings by Seasons Floral Design Studio to Sean's black velvet tuxedo and wintery bout, to boot! The couple even planned a drive-by photo shoot at a local nursery decked out with Christmas wreaths and Frasier firs!
For a personal touch, Melissa hired an artist from Etsy to design tablecards with hand-drawn images of mountains they'd mastered. As for the signature cocktail? Hot toddies, of course, served with coasters that marked with their favorite seasonal quote, "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!".
Of course, it snowed!
Sit back, sip your cocoa & be inspired. There's got to be a silver lining to all this SNOW!
