Real Wedding Vow Renewal : Adirondack Love in North Creek, NY

When I heard that Tiffany Wayne Photography was going to be heading to North Creek to photograph a vow renewal at the Copperfield Inn - I knew I had to keep a close eye on her sneak peeks. You might remember I wrote a review of our wonderful stay at The Copperfield Inn and Resort back in October. Kristen and Ryan have actually been married for 5 years, but they never had a formal wedding. So after 5 years, they decided to go all out and renew their vows and have the wedding of their dreams. Isn't this just the sweetest? Their special day is beautiful and filled with lots of Adirondack touches as they both love the outdoors and camping. Oh, and don't you just love Kristen shorter wedding dress with the flower embellishments?

Kristen included so many wonderful items from Etsy in her wedding {including the bridal hanger, garter, and handmade jewelry} Do you notice the five beads on Kristen’s necklace? This symbolize the five years Kristen and Ryan have been married! And, since the wedding took place the day before July 4th, isn't the garter just perfect?

Loving this photo of Kristen as she looks out the window - it was raining, well pouring actually, right before the wedding. But, it stopped just in time for their outdoor ceremony held on the Kellogg Property.

The "Happily Ever After Starts Here" sign is such a cute way to direct your guests to the ceremony spot.

Kristen and Ryan had a tree planting ceremony to symbolize "Love Grows".

There was even a guest signing tree. Oh, and isn't the little terrarium with the mini animal inside cute?

There was even a "Mad Libs" game at each place setting.

Gotta love a cake that looks like a birch tree for an Adirondack themed affair :)

And, now for some amazing portraits of Kristen and Ryan - I love the lighting on the darker ones - so intriguing.

And, there you have it. A beautiful vow renewal - dream wedding. Such a wonderful concept.

Tiffany even put together a little video of Kristen and Ryan's special day that you can see here.

The Perfect Setting for an Adirondack Wedding

The Copperfield Inn on Main Street in North Creek, NY is the perfect destination for your Adirondack Wedding, a pre-wedding party or even your honeymoon location. Recently, I was invited to stay as a guest at the inn and received a full tour of the facilities and loved every minute of my stay. Their quote. "the amenities of a resort, the charm of an inn, the experience of a lifetime" couldn't be more true. You will truly love your stay at the Copperfield Inn.

At The Copperfield Inn, they are able to accommodate up to 200 guests in their ballroom {Great Room} and in the Hunt Room, they can hold 80 maximum with 60 being average. The Hunt Room is ideal for smaller weddings or the after party. From the custom wedding menus to the cakes and pastries that are made to order with a pastry chef on staff - the award winning culinary staff at The Copperfield Inn will happily create your special menu. And, if this is a destination wedding for you - the wedding specialists at the inn can help plan not just the wedding, but a complete itinerary for your group covering anywhere from 2 days to even a full week.

Should you like a special location for your ceremony, there is a pond just 5 minutes away or across the street from the inn is a pavilion. Other options include the back terrace of the inn, the Hunt Room or even getting married on top of Gore Mountain which is just minutes away. A shuttle is available to bring your guests from the inn to the mountain.

After your reception, the newlywed couple receives a complimentary nights stay in The Copperfield Inn Suite. The Copperfield Inn features 31 deluxe rooms and suites {many with whirlpool baths}, free wifi, a sauna, fitness center, outdoor hot tub and swimming pool, spa treatments, both pub-style and fine dining within the inn, and complimentary ski shuttle.

If choosing the Copperfield Inn for your bachelor/ette party, there is great whitewater rafting nearby, even hiking, horseback riding or wine tasting. After your day's activities, you can come back to the inn for some great food at either the Trappers Tavern or Lorenzo's. The Trappers Tavern offers classic adirondack atmosphere in the style of a woodman's camp. And, Lorenzo's features authentic Northern Italian cuisine with a wood fired oven being the focal spot inside. It's most definitely a "memorable cuisine" that awaits you at the Copperfield Inn. And, there's also a delicious breakfast that is served each morning.

No matter the season, you and your guests will be sure to find something to do while at The Copperfield Inn. From the whitewater rafting to skiing at Gore Mountain to shopping and dining at the quaint shops and restaurants along Main Street . . . it's a beautifully quiet area that you will quickly fall in love with. I know myself, hubby and daughter have and we look forward to being able to make a trip out to The Copperfield Inn again in the future.

This is a review of my stay at Copperfield Inn, I was not monetarily paid to make any of the above statements.
