Are you planning an elopement in the beautiful Adirondacks? Upstate New York's range of mountains have so much to offer. From high peak wilderness, to flat trails and fields with mountain views, as well as creeks and waterfalls... we have it all! Here are my personal picks for the "Top 5 Places to Elope in the Adirondacks."
1.) Keene Field
Without a doubt, my favorite field is at the intersection of Route 73 and 9N. On a nice day, you can count on a bright sunrise alpenglow, and the most spectacular sunset just beyond the horizon of the tall mountains in the distance. It is a gorgeous location in all 4 seasons. For a couple not looking to hike on their wedding day, but wanting a mountainous backdrop, this is for you! (If you're not eloping, you can always do a first look, or adventure session here as well!)
2.) Whiteface Field
This is another field in Wilmington with a very different mountain view; Whiteface in all her Glory. Another great way to get outdoors and enjoy nature, without the effort of a hike on your wedding day.
3.) Lake George
There are an array of mountain tops you can climb, and beaches you can get married at, on Lake George! It is a spring fed lake, and is crystal clear the the very bottom. James and Carrie eloped on Lac du Sacrement with their closest friends and family this past summer. They spent their honeymoon in Lake Placid and hiked all over the Adirondacks!
4.) Hadley, New York
