A Celebration Vacation
Too often, a traditional wedding can feel like a decathlon - a gauntlet of meet and greets, dinners, hair, and makeup. You are supposed to remember these moments for a lifetime, but with so many demands on your attention what memories will you have? Far from a decathlon, your wedding should feel like a walk in the park - the Adirondack Park!
An Immersive Destination Right Next Door
If you've ever driven up the Adirondack Northway, you know the feeling of entering the Adirondacks. It's an escape, it's a relief, it's like finding an oasis, a haven, a sanctuary from the everyday hustle and bustle. It's as if the open skies offer room for the weight of the world to float off your shoulders. It's a drive that ends at High Peaks Resort where you can park your car and not have to move it the entire time you're here. Where your stay begins with a refreshing glass of sparkling wine to help you relax and settle in, and where mini Mirror Lake adventures accentuate the ceremony and reception of your dreams.
A Gathering of Friends and Loved Ones
Quality time is a precious commodity. When you invite your guests to High Peaks Resort for your wedding, you invite your guests to go on a vacation. They can relax and unwind, they can explore, they can bond with new extended family and friends. They can make their Adirondack getaway as leisurely or action-packed as they want and make the most of every moment in paradise. And you can enjoy time with your guests in an organic and natural way without pressure and without condensing every moment into one evening.
A Splendid Location
Soaring High Peaks, rushing waters or snow-covered landscape, pristine lakes glistening in the sun or frozen in time and stillness and miles of open sky create an unparalleled natural ambiance for any event. But it doesn't stop when you come inside.
Picturesque Ceremonies All Year Long
Bursting with the sap and blue-greens of spring, crowned with the cadmium yellow of summer sunshine, woven into a tapestry of Autumn's crimson, dark yellows, bright reds, and Van Dyke brown, or blanketed in the stark and snowy titanium white of winter, the Waterfront Collection at High Peaks Resort makes a spectacular backdrop to a wedding ceremony on Mirror Lake.
Inside, sunshine and foliage pour into the Lake House Great Room through a wall of glass and sets off the rich colors and wood grains of a recently remodeled mid-century modern mountain lodge. Nearby the resort, the region's beautiful places of worship offer a setting that is both ethereal and reverential, allowing for an experience that flows from one location to the next.
Designed to Complement Your Vision
The Adirondack Great Camp era of the late 19th and early 20th centuries was famous for an eclectic interior style blending folk art, fine art, locally sourced and handcrafted furniture and collectibles from travels around the world. What resulted was a style that was both welcoming and elegant and was well-loved and lived-in.
Taking inspiration from the Adirondack Great Camp era, the design team at High Peaks Resort has created an experience that is both timeless and timely and is infinitely flexible. Mahogany wainscotting brings rusty tones out of burnished flooring, echoed on 12-foot vaulted ceilings. The light, neutral wallpaper allows the space to shimmer with light. It's an atmosphere that feels tailor-made for an Adirondack wedding that is uniquely yours whether your theme is rustic or elegant, modern or whimsical. Our newly remodeled Great Range is just one of many spaces designed to harmonize with your vision of the perfect wedding experience.
Always Your Perfect Fit
No two couples are alike, which means there is no cookie-cutter formula for the perfect wedding, there is just your wedding.
A Dream Wedding for Every Budget
It doesn't matter what your budget is. If you're looking for a once in a lifetime experience on a smaller budget, with a little creativity and compromise, the wedding of your dreams is more achievable than you think. Think the only time to enjoy the Adirondacks is during the height of Summer or a few weeks in Autumn? Think again. Think Saturday is the only day to get married? Not in this day and age.
And it's not just your wallet that feels the positive impact. Choosing a less traditional schedule for your wedding opens wide the doors of opportunity and makes possible experiences that ordinarily wouldn't be, like unique family activities and private access to scenic locations. A non-traditional wedding is an opportunity to create something truly special for you and all of your guests!
