This is a good story. Chris’s family’s home sits on the shore of Lake George in upstate New York. Janine’s family’s home sits a mere 3 minute walk through the pines from Chris’s. The two met when they were teenagers and spent the next 5 summers flirting and water skiing together (they even had their first kiss in the middle of the bay aboard a wave runner) . They lost touch during their college years, but finally reconnected in 2010. They’ve been inseparable ever since and decided to have their wedding on the front lawn of Chris’s family’s home. What’s not to love about that? It’s so romantic it’s almost unbelievable.
Our favorite part of the weekend? They even managed to squeeze in a few rounds of water skiing the morning of their wedding at 6:30 am!
Janine and Chris’s style and attention to the details was perfect. It’s not easy to pull off rustic and glam, but they did it with ease. They chose incredibly thoughtful gifts for their wedding party which you’ll see below. They created their own backdrop for a photo booth complete with vintage water skis and vintage fishing/camp ephemera. They stripped and aged wood stumps from behind the house to create the seating for the fire pit. I could go on and on, but I’ll save some for Part 2. This will lead you through the rehearsal dinner up to the ceremony…
Janine and Chris’s wedding continues with their lakeside ceremony, more gorgeous details, and Janine taking Chris for a ride in her boat. Check back in a few days!
