Chautauqua Institute Wedding

Chautauqua Institute Wedding: Remy grew up going to Chautauqua as a child and so Remy and Joe’s first date was also in Chautauqua! Joe grew to love it there – they joke almost more than Remy. It just made sense to have the wedding there.

The wedding utilized vendors from 4 different states: Ohio, PA, New York, and South Carolina! Chautauqua Lake is a beautiful, quaint town that forces you to slow down and enjoy what’s around you.

The colors for this wedding included summer greens and blues with touches of blush and lots of lush greenery. The tent structure was a sailcloth tent that elevates any event, and this was no different. It was perfect for a summer wedding by the water!

Lighting in the tent changed slowly like the sunset, and ended with a deep blue for a fun vibe to dance the night away.

Remy and Joe gave a nod to their puppy with the bar sign and custom artwork from Studio R Designs.

Kayla Coleman, our photographer, truly captured their personalities and the scenic venue. The ceremony at the Hall of Philosophy outdoor church.

Cupcaked created an adorable cake which also featured their beloved dog. The dessert display was a hit with plenty of tasty treats for the guests to enjoy on the beautiful rented buffet from Borrow Curated.

Overall, this was truly a picture perfect day with views of the lake!
