Weddings are becoming more and more personable – gone are the days when everyone got married in a church. Now, ceremonies take place everywhere from hotels to banquet halls to golf courses and beyond. Why compromise when you can have the wedding you’ve always imagined?

If you’re looking to get married in the Adirondacks, you’re probably picturing a woodsy and whimsical wedding with a country feel. Perhaps you’re thinking of a barn wedding, or something outdoors with a picturesque Adirondack backdrop.

Browse these six rustic and quirky wedding venues in the Adirondacks and then start planning for your big day!

Gore Mountain

Did you know? You can get married on top of iconic Gore Mountain! Or if you’d prefer, you could hold your ceremony at the base of the mountain – either way, you and your guests are in store for a truly unique wedding.

You can add family-oriented activities to your celebration you won’t be able to get anywhere else, with scenic gondola rides, miniature golf, fireworks, and much more.

The Barn at Castle Creek

A local bride’s father built this venue for his daughter in Whitehall, now called The Barn at Castle Creek. This young woman had the wedding of her dreams at this rustic barn, and you can too! The family has now opened up the barn for rentals.

The Barn at Castle Creek is situated at the end of a long, dirt road next to a manmade pond. The 40’x60′ barn took two years to build and exudes that country feel many Adirondack brides are looking for.
