Amazing winter wedding venue
We had the crazy idea that we wanted an outdoor winter wedding ceremony with a fun party reception to follow. Kristin could not have been any more helpful to helping us realize our dreams. We planned the wedding from Buffalo,NY, so only had the chance to visit the venue once in the summer. It did not matter, Kristen had every small detail planned for us. The ceremony was stunning. She lit a fire in the boathouse for us to keep warm prior to the ceremony. The grounds crew had the boardwalk completely melted for guests to walk down, complete with seats set up for the ceremony. Hot spiked chocolate and cider were set up prior as well! The actual reception area was BEAUTIFUL! With candles and garland everywhere. The food was superb, and the staff was extremely nice. We had 150 guests for a "moveable feast" instead of a formal sit down dinner. Everyone was pleased.
Our recommendation would be to listen to Kristin's advice as we could not have planned a better day. She even came to our first look and helped the bride with several dress disasters. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.Sent on 02/06/2020

Perfect Wedding Venue
Absolutely gorgeous venue with picturesque views all around. We couldn't of asked for a better setting for our wedding. The reception area held multiple areas for guests to spend their time and socialize away from the music. The only downfall of the venue is lack of signs directing guests; it is tucked away and can be very difficult to find if you haven't been there before. Overall, it was an amazing day and I wouldn't of wanted to have my wedding anywhere else.Sent on 10/30/2019

The photos that were taken for my surprise proposal were absolutely stunning! Thank you so much Kristen and the staff at the whiteface club!Sent on 09/21/2017
Whiteface Club & Resort is a well-oiled machine when it comes to doing weddings right. The location could not be more beautiful and perfect for an Adirondack wedding. If you are lucky enough to get an outdoor wedding in the garden with your cocktail hour (or small reception) in the boathouse, then you will be sitting pretty on your day without a worry in the world. The views are spectacular and the service is impeccable!
The BEST place for the wedding of your dream!!
