Good day my friends! Today we’re kicking things off with this wedding story from Amanda and Andrey. Their event took place in The Mountain House located in the indie woodland’s Adirondack Mountains. Their wedding proved to be a gorgeous affair and Amanda took care of all the floral arrangements by using dried flowers and placed them in their specialty beer bottles to signify her passion for home beer brewing which had become one of her favorite pastimes. I like their hand-stamped paper items as well as Amanda’s Leanne Marshall wedding dress. Also having these shades of mustard yellow all throughout the decorations really gives off that fun-loving feeling which the couple has been known for. Here’s what Amanda can share about the meaning behind the venue:
The Adirondack Mountain is such a significant place for both of us. I went on vacation here during summertime since I was a kid and Andrey has been hiking this area since his college days. Were going 46 now and we often spend the weekends hiking and exploring in this beautiful piece of land. So during our wedding, we want to have that spirit of the mountains in our special day.
Huge thanks to Emma McIntyre Photography for providing us these stunning pictures of the wedding and besr wishes to Andrey and Amanda!

I love seeing Amanda and Andrey riding bikes on their wedding day! This moment was captured as the couple was taking their exit “ride” at their recessional and it’s so fun watching them. Wow, such a unique way to make a ceremonial exit!
And these photos are some of the couple’s post-ceremony portraits. These pictures are a killer, right?
The love the festive mood they incorporated while decorating the tent. The entire area was adorned by these color buntings, the apple place cards, and dried flowers! The relaxed feel of the decoration was felt around the area and it blended accordingly to the rustic surroundings.
Our most memorable part of the wedding – The sky was getting dark and black clouds started looming the whole place during out reception dinner. We can even see the rain falling on the peaks over the distance. Even so, Andrey and I decided to slipped out for the moment and enjoy the view of the place and marvel at all of its magnificent views. We were able to absorb the amazing feeling of the moment and we did without with having a single drop of rain falling on us.
Wedding advice – Making plans for your wedding is a very special time and it should always be fun. Just be happy being engaged and find time to enjoy the planning experience. Andrey and I have been involved in making most of our wedding projects and it was in those moments that I’ve learned to cherish our experience and make it more meaningful.
