Wedding of the Month: Katherine and Johnny

Katherine and Johnny got married on April 8th 2017. He proposed to her on top of Breakneck Mountain which is located right above our venue! Luckily when they were up there, there was a photographer and they got the most amazing and breathtaking engagement photos!




This happy couple knew the Chalet was the right place for them! The bridal party got some great photo op time on our back patio in front of the waterfall. They were having so much fun as you can see….







It was  just a tad windy out that day, but they managed to have a wonderful ceremony outside! Right in front of the waterfall and all of their guests.






The reception had them dancing the night away with their friends and family. They also got to cut their beautiful magnolia cake!





And then one last peek at the brides gown just because it was absolutely stunning!


We wish you both the best from all of us here at the Chalet!

Featured Wedding of the Month: Patrick and Megan

Patrick and Megan got married here at the Chalet on February 25th, 2017. Their theme was Navy Blue and Silver.

They have their own wonderful little love story that has to do with their adorable table numbers!

Patrick proposed to Megan in front of their first Christmas tree.

So what they did was cut up the trunk of their tree to little pieces and made table numbers out of them and sealed them.

They came out so beautiful and look very trendy.

This love story is definitely one for the books! From all of us at The Chalet on the Hudson we wish you both the best of luck!

What makes a wedding cake romantic? There is something about flowers on a wedding cake that speaks romance. Blooms have long been associated with love and romance. The Greeks used a flower to represent Venus, the goddess of love. White roses symbolize unity and true love. So what better to decorate a wedding cake with than flowers – be them white or colorful. Ruffles and romance are also a perfect pairing. They can be both artful and sophisticated.  Ribbons and lace have  also long been associated with love and romance.

All White Wedding Cakes

An all white wedding cake is classic. There is something so elegant about its monochromatic simplicity. Just because the color is simple, however, doesn’t mean that the cake will be boring. The visual appeal is all in the details. Geometric patterns create a more modern look. Flowers, depending upon their style, can transform plain icing or fondant into something dramatic or simple. A ruffled effect can work with a relaxed or vintage theme. Piping and polka dots transcend another time. You can kick it up a notch with ribbons and sashes. Below are some inspiring ideas.
