Jess & Rob ♥ Seneca Lake, New York
Photographer: Smile Peace Love Photography
Today we’re jetting off to the US and the state of New York for a luxury lakeside destination wedding! Waterside weddings are one of my favourites; whether it’s overlooking the ocean, a river, a lake or even a canal, being beside water creates an incredibly calm and at-one-with-nature feeling, and of course it makes an undeniably beautiful backdrop.
Jess and Rob tied the knot beside the harbour of the elegant Watkins Glen Harbour Hotel, overlooking the spectacular Seneca Lake in the heart of Finger Lakes Wine Country (sounds good to me!).
Their springtime celebration was prettied with pink details and Jess stunned her groom (and their guests) in a sophisticated capped-sleeve Vera Wang gown, just right for this spring soiree.
They pampered their guests with lovely little personal details at the wedding reception including pashminas as favours to keep everyone snug as the sun began to set and the early evening chill arrived….
Cora & Brian ♥ Hudson River Valley, New York

There are so many beautiful areas in the state of New York. Venture beyond the dazzling lights of Manhattan and be charmed by the countryside and coastal regions that are only a stones throw away.
Cora and Brian LOVE the Hudson River Valley region, north of New York City, with its undeniable charisma and historical beauty and so it seemed like the perfect place for them to say ‘I Do,’ and I think that you’ll agree that they chose one of the most picturesque venues for their serene outdoor ceremony!
The enchanting Boscobel House and Gardens overlooks the Hudson River and is considered to be one of the finest examples of Federal-style architecture in New York. Doesn’t the majestic yellow house deliver everything that you could imagine a dream American wedding to be and more?
Beyond the regality of the ceremony venue, this darling duo ensured that their big day was a romantic-yet-relaxed affair. There’s infectious smiles and laughter to be seen on everyone’s faces and their wonderfully rustic reception ended with dance floor shenanigans and fun with the photo booth props!
If you think that New York could be the wedding destination for you, look beyond the bright lights of the big city, as there are so many fairytale venues to choose from just around the corner…

Heather & Brian ♥ New York City, USA

Being a city girl at heart, there’s nothing I love more than a metropolis marriage and New York City has to be a firm favorite when it comes to urban locales. The skyscraper views, the chic city venues…if a concrete jungle wedding is what your destination dreams are made of, then The Big Apple will not disappoint!
Heather and Brian tied the knot in NYC with a vintage-inspired wedding day that was cool and then some. They fell helplessly in love with The Green Building and built their theme around its beautifully sleek industrial interior and vintage vibe – it even has a speakeasy room at the back, decked out in décor that would be fitting to the prohibition days.
Previously a brass foundry, The Green Building boasts original brick walls and exposed beam ceilings, opulently finished with gold chandeliers and twinkling fairy lights to create a warm and intimate setting.
