My fiance and I knew we wanted to get married on Lake George, but we also knew we didn't want to pay the price for a cookie cutter wedding at the Inn at Erlowest or the Sagamore. We feel in love with SB and knew it would be our venue as soon as we saw it and met the Sales Director, Lindsey. She was clearly super organized, incredibly invested in making our day special. From then on planning was a breeze. It was fantastic to know that our guests could stay right on the property. Lindsey was so on top of any questions and deadlines which made my life much easier. The grounds are gorgeous and there are tons of activities so guests are entertained while you're busy getting ready. The new hotel is beautiful, but there are plenty of great housing options. We did our rehearsal dinner and cocktail hour in the Boat House , it was so cozy (it was chilly enough for a fire in the fireplace which was awesome) and our guests couldn't get over the amazing views. Our reception was in Gullen and was plenty big enough to fit tables and a band. As if we weren't 100% sure SB was perfect, the food was the icing on the cake. IT WAS SO GOOD. Both the rehearsal dinner, appetizers and reception dinner blew everyone away. Our guests were raving about the food (especially the corn bread and Dr. Pepper/Strawberry BBQ pulled pork).The staff was amazing (shout out to the event staff member who was up til past midnight laying out silverware and linens!), the bartenders were great and I cannot speak highly enough about Lindsey. She was an angel I did not deserve on the day of the wedding. She handled all the "back stage" tasks so seamlessly that I basically did nothing but get my hair and make-up done and have minor meltdowns. I could not have gotten through that day without her calming presence and her organizational skills. If you are looking for a Lake George wedding, but don't want to be treated like just another of the 23,894 brides passing through then have your wedding at Silver Bay.

From the very beginning when we went to visit Silver Bay YMCA, our experiences with staff and the venue were amazing. Lindsey, the sales director, went above and beyond to help us create our perfect wedding. Even with the frenzy of construction, they were accommodating and professional to us and all our guests. From little details such as helping us with our floral decor to helping us with our first look and photos, it was perfect. We cannot sing enough praises about the location, staff, and memories made there. We had our rehearsal dinner in the boathouse and the reception/cocktail hour in the gymnasium, and it was amazing. Our only regret is that it went so quickly! Silver Bay will have a special place in our hearts, and we cannot wait to return in the future and tell family about our wonderful experience there.

Guests who attended our wedding kept assuming that it cost a lot of money. We were really lucky to have found such a gorgeous venue for the price of a YMCA. The staff were so friendly and helpful on our big day, and the food was great! The only reason I didn't give them a 5 for flexibility, is because they were booked for our preferred wedding date almost two years in advance, so we had to change it to two weeks later. I really recommend getting married here in the off-season. You really get the star treatment, and you have most of the entire campus to yourselves and your guests.
Erin Grayson was our coordinator, and she was AMAZING. She kept everyone sane, and made sure everything ran smoothly. I could tell that her main priority was to make sure that we all had a great time.
Bruce Tamlyn was our officiant, and he was an absolute dream. We met him only once before we were married, and he gave us a lovely book called The Five Love Languages. Our family and friends remarked over and over again what a deep down nice guy he was, and what a wonderful job of the wedding service he did. He's got a good sense of humour, and truly loves what he does.
