Come wintertime, nothing sets the scene like pure white snow. This magical wood-and-stone lodge in the Adirondack Mountains has it by the bucketful, plus several cozy spots for a ceremony and reception. In a wonderland like this, the possibilities for fun are endless, from greeting guests with hot mugs of spiked cocoa to departing by horse-drawn sleigh.
Make it official in front of a crackling fire in the lodge's Artisan's Circle (left) or Moose Room. To play up the ambience, set out lit candles, line the aisle with fragrant pine boughs, and drape a few plush throws over chair backs.
Host your rehearsal dinner in town at Lisa G's, a cult favorite. The menu changes with the seasons, but the signature thin-crust pizzas are served year-round. Order a bunch, and let everyone dig right in.
