Wow, wow, wow. What a weekend! Not only is the Adirondacks just plain gorgeous, but this green wedding was held at the fairly new and totally green/eco-friendly/sustainable venue: The Wild Center! The food was local, the beer and wine was local, the amazing coffee was all locally roasted. Yes, these were a few of the reasons that Sean and Brittany were my Green Wedding Giveaway Winners!
Sean and Brittany ended up with a gorgeous blue sky for their evening wedding at the Wild Center in Tupper Lake, NY. We began the day skateboarding at the local skate park (yes, Tupper Lake actually has one!) and ended the evening with a beautiful moody sky and a hint of a sunset. The rehearsal dinner was a BBQ at Brittany’s parent’s cabin on the Racquette River and the girls headed out to the local Metal Festival for an impromptu bachelorette party!
Other highlights of this green wedding at The Wild Center was their awesome dog CoCo, with flowery collar and garter…
Brittany’s sister, Tara, who is 8 months pregnant and on bed rest was in attendance via video chat!….

Another fun and unique wedding detail was my very first Bride and Groom in attendance! The Groomsmen were the most on the ball that I’ve worked with in a long time which also made this green wedding a great day. I even talked them into going skateboarding before getting ready, since that is how they all know each other. Luckily, Tupper Lake has a tiny skatepark nearby.
For the wedding reception, instead of a regular DJ, Brittany’s long time friend took over and did an awesome job mixing all sorts of genres/decades/styles. Well done!
It was an honor to be the Photographer and unofficial wedding coordinator for this event. Sean and Brittany have an amazing relationship and are so content with each other that it makes me smile. After knowing Sean for almost 10 years, it gave me great pleasure to see him get married to his best friend!
Random trivia… Sean is an artist and he painted the former mural in my bathroom as well as drew the graphics on one of my banjos! Also, Brittany interned at the Wild Center one summer, teaching about moss… The Wild Center was a beautiful location for this eco-friendly wedding in the Adirondacks and I hope to do wedding photography here again very soon.
Planning a green wedding at The Wild Center in the Adirondacks?
It is an amazing and gorgeous eco-friendly, rustic wedding venue for unique wedding photos and offbeat wedding couples. Since we were here they even built a giant birds nest that cannot be missed.
