    Elexis Gaines Was a Great Choice as Our Wedding Planner

    When our daughter and her fiancé chose the Lake Placid Lodge for their wedding, we knew that we would need a Wedding Planner, as the wedding would be a destination event for everyone. We were relatively unfamiliar with the Adirondack area and needed someone, who could help us make all the local arrangements, such as the tent, transportation, flowers, hair and makeup, and so on. Elexis knew all the best people and helped us with all the logistics. She kept everyone on schedule and organized. Elexis also insured that everything was beautiful, paying attention to the smallest of details. Our guests really enjoyed themselves and commented on the beautiful flower arrangements, the place settings, and the flow of events. The rehearsal dinner, welcoming cocktail party, wedding reception, and brunch all went off without a hitch. It was very comforting to have Elexis with all her experience guide us successfully through the one year of planning.

    The Most Incredible Lake Placid Wedding Weekend

    If you are considering a wedding in the Adirondacks, let hiring Elexis be your first (and best) decision. My husband and I were married at the Lake Placid Lodge and engaging Elexis was one of the first things we did. We have a very hectic personal and professional travel schedule, and live at a great distance from the venue, so we were in need of guidance to help manage a process we knew very little about. Elexis is incredibly organized, introduced us to amazing vendors (check out Black Swan Floral Design!) and helped us produce an event that was elegant, memorable and perfect for our small, but mighty, 50-person crew. And by event, I mean a 4-day weekend that entailed a family dinner, welcome dinner, main event (and after party!) and brunch. Every detail was flawless, including sourcing and managing many items that were rented from other vendors. She knows the venue like the back of her hand and was able to truly maximize the space, allowing us to utilize both indoor and outdoor locations with ease. I may be a little biased, but it was truly the best wedding I have ever attended - and our guests agreed. So much so that they are requesting a reunion event next year. I will miss my daily interactions with Elexis - her calmness, humor, kindness and creativity. But, I am happy to say that I look forward to continuing our friendship long after my husband and I said "I do."

Elexis of Placid Planner is one of the most positive, encouraging and supportive people I know. Her level of integrity is supremely high which, as a wedding planner who works with many long-distance clients, is such an important quality to have. She is someone that I would trust to keep my best interest in mind when making decisions on my behalf or navigating through the various vendors and location options in the area. If you are considering having your wedding in the Adirondacks, I encourage you to shoot her an email or give her a call. You will be happy you did!
