Brittany and Patrick had a beautiful June wedding at The Lake George Club on Lake George in Diamond Point, New York. The wedding had pink, orange, and blue as the color scheme. Patrick picked orange and Brittany chose pink and they rounded it up by adding blue as well! Her bridesmaids were in our Amani, Jessica, Sariah and Kaiya dresses.

Q: Why did you choose this venue for your wedding?
“I grew up there in the summers ever since I was a baby and knew that this was where I wanted to get married. It’s a place where I feel at home. Everyone who works there is like another family member and it the most picturesque location, on Lake George, surrounded by the Adirondack Mountains.”
Q: What’s the story behind your wedding colors?
“I love bright colors and wanted a really colorful and fun wedding. For a spring wedding, the colors were spot-on. I also thought about how the colors would transition from day to night. Bright colors for fun in the day and colors of a sunset for at night. The blue lake surrounded by the lush green mountains and a bright blue sky that day really made everything pop, especially the bright colors of my bridesmaid dresses.”
Q: Pick your favorite moment of the day.
“The most emotional moment was seeing my husband for the first time at our first look before the ceremony. As I was walking down with my maid of honor to see him, my emotions just started coming out from nowhere. We were finally getting married. As I waited for him the anticipation just kept building, but the second I saw him he made me smile and laugh and all my nerves melted.
The second best moment was dancing with my husband on the dance floor surrounded by all the people we love. We danced for half of our first dance alone, and then half way through it invited everyone to join us. Living so far away from everyone we love and not being able to see them regularly, it was so amazing to have everyone in one place at one time.”
Q: Why did you choose Azazie?
“My bridesmaids are located all across the country, so I needed somewhere that was easy for everyone to have access to and not be too expensive. Ordering online and the great customer service at Azazie made it easy for everyone to figure out what they wanted, order their dress and receive it easily wherever they were. We ordered swatches to compare the colors, which arrived very quickly. I picked two colors and then let everyone choose their own style. I wanted them to pick a dress that they liked and the color they preferred.”
Q: Any tips for those getting married soon?
Try to focus on enjoying yourself and worry about the big things rather than small details that are more than a headache to plan than the reality of it attributing to your day as a whole. My husband and I tried to think about how we wanted our day to be that would make us the happiest. In the end, worrying about big details made it less stressful. There is so much online that you can get lost ‘going down the rabbit hole’ of what people say make a perfect wedding. You can have a wedding that doesn’t break the bank if you decided what is needed. In the end, it’s all about your vision of happiness.
Q: How was the wedding planning process for you?
“I enjoyed the wedding process because I had a great husband and group of family and close friends who really helped out. People are more than willing to help do a little bit if you ask them, rather than trying to do everything yourself. Plus working with people to create your perfect day made it more fun. Asking for help really added to the planning process. I didn’t hire a wedding planner or day-of planner because I had such great support. Whether it was sampling, doing invitations, floral arrangements, making giant lawn games, etc. there was someone who wanted to help carry out your vision. We also had a lot of great vendors who were flexible to work with us via Skype/Facetime meetings and lots of emails since we live halfway across the world.”
Q: Describe your wedding in one word.
Q: Finals thoughts?
“At the end of our wedding, we had a sparkler exit that led us to a boat to take us back to our hotel. Driving away at the end, I told my husband that it was a more than perfect day, the only thing wrong was that it happened too fast. Take time to spend some alone time throughout the day with your husband because it really does go by fast. It will be the best day of your life.”
