Vows with Views

Dreaming of an intimate or spontaneous rustic-chic wedding in the Adirondacks? With several locations surrounded by nature as you recite your wedding vows, ceremonies at Gore Mountain are nothing short of magical. The stunning views of the 46 High Peaks are a perfect backdrop for couples who are looking for an off-the-beaten-path vibe. Enjoy an intimate ride as you are whisked away by the Northwoods Gondola or the Adirondack Express 4-person chairlift on your way to say ‘I do’.

Whether you’re surrounded by the lush greens and wildflowers of summer or exchanging vows beneath a canopy of brilliant russet and golden leaves of autumn, you are bound to fall in love with the simple elegance and Adirondack charm of Gore Mountain.

Overview

Imagine saying ‘I do’ surrounded by your loved ones and the stunning panoramic views of the Adirondacks from atop Gore Mountain.

Mountain Chic Attire

While not every couple opts to specify a dress code, we thought we could provide a starting point if that is something you are interested in.

 

If you are including information on attire there are three places the information can typically be found:

  • The bottom of the wedding invitation.
  • A separate details card to accompany the invitation
  • On the wedding website.

These are also ideal locations to include your policy on children for the big day, information on local sitters or daycare options. 

 

Some verbiage to get you started……

For Those Who Prefer a Masculine Style: A suit and tie or a dinner jacket and dress pants are still appropriate for a mountain semi-formal event, but consider adding a touch of the theme to your look. Earthy tones such as tans, browns, greens, and blues are great ways to give a subtle nod to the ambiance. Or, for more flair, consider a more rustic button-down shirt under a dinner jacket, paired with some nice boots, a wooden tie, or a nice tweed.

 

For Those Who Prefer a Feminine Style: While a cocktail dress, skirt and top combo, or jumpsuit are still the base of your look, but think of ways that you can lean into the mountain feel. Consider a nice pair of booties, or flats, a jacket with faux fur, turquoise jewelry, or a knit sweater (especially if you get chilly as the sun goes down).

 

Things to Avoid: Heels- nothing spoils a special day like a sprained ankle. Heavy scents- including hairspray, cologne, and perfume as even into the fall the Adirondack mosquito can still be found.

 

Think of the big day as an adventure and be prepared to do just that!
