Idyllic Elopement at Adirondack Island


Crystal-clear water, in which the hilly landscape reflects, gets us in the right mood for a dreamlike elopement at Adirondack Island. Because it keeps its promise of idyll, romance and a lot of nature.

On the way to an intimate ceremony on the deserted shore, the modern bride and groom draw steady waves into the otherwise motionless surface of the lake with their simple wooden boat.

They are traces into the common future as husband and wife which soon blur again to keep the secret of their wedding, only to reveal it officially soon.

They just celebrated their love in the smallest circle, but gladly share their happiness and joy with friends and families at the elaborately set dinner table…

Photographer Mary Dougherty shows us her very own version of elopement in a untouched natural backdrop.

With event stylist Lacy Geary at her side, the Lake Placid Lodge and its intimate surroundings have been transformed into a true paradise for a young love.

The result is extraordinary, new and unconventional – as impressively demonstrated by the magnificent shots of Mary Dougherty.
