We got together with some of our friends to create this little story at Boldt Castle elopement in Alexandria Bay, NY. The location is one of our absolute favourites for ceremonies – its rare to find Old World architecture like this in North America, much less castles that are within 2 hours of Ottawa, Canada. Elise decorated the most beautiful tablescape with sumptuous florals, fit for a queen. A few of our favourite moments in Alexandria Bay are below. If you’re on the hunt for a regal wedding venue with tons of natural light in Eastern Ontario or New York state, take a look below.
Part of the castle areas are open to public, and a few spots were just available to us. We spent most of the afternoon on the island, and then took the ferry back to Alexandria Bay in New York for a sunset session in the water, and celebratory drinks on a patio.
If you’re looking for more Old World romance, take a look at this St. Tropez wedding at the Hotel Villa Belrose, or this rustic Italian celebration at Rosa Rosae in Breda di Piave.
