Whiteface Club and Resort in Lake Placid Honored
in WeddingWire’s Couples’ Choice Award
Award cited by WeddingWire Network newlyweds
Lake Placid, NY – October 2017 / Newsmaker Alert / The Whiteface Club and Resort in Lake Placid, N.Y., among the premier international wedding venues, has received the 2017 Couples’ Choice Awards from WeddingWire. It’s the second time the resort has collected this prestigious honor.

The honor recognizes the top five percent of local wedding professionals from the WeddingWire Network. The recipients must demonstrate excellence in quality, service, responsiveness and professionalism.
Whiteface Club and Resort in Lake Placid Honored in WeddingWire's Couples' Choice AwardThe primary criteria to achieve the award requires the wedding planner to collect at least five reviews written in 2016. The WeddingWire Couples’ Choice Awards® are issued solely based on the reviews from newlyweds. 

“We are flattered and humbled to be considered in the top echelon of wedding professionals,” said Kristin Parker, Whiteface Club Wedding Planner and Events Coordinator. “On such a sacred day for these couples, our team has a great responsibility to deliver an experience that will last a lifetime for the newlyweds, their families and friends. When the event has concluded, the Whiteface Club will be part of that forevermore.”

Mark Sperling, CEO of the Whiteface Club Companies, expressed his appreciation of this most recent accolade.

“What makes this particular award so significant is that it comes from the couples themselves,” he said. “If they’re happy, we’re happy. The top five percent of planners is a very exclusive group, and is achieved by the cohesive execution by our entire wedding team. I’m grateful to the staff for the wonderful job they do, and thankful for the reviews from the couples.”

Unlike other awards in which winners are selected by the organization, the WeddingWire Couples’ Choice Awards® are issued solely based on the reviews from over 1.2 million newlyweds.

Here’s a sampling:

  • Laura, who was married in August 2017, remarked. “I feel I could go on forever about how every detail was literally perfect and we have Kristin Parker and the staff at the Whiteface Club and Resort to thank for exceeding ALL of our expectations in every way possible. Kristin is SO much more than a wedding coordinator. She is a full wedding planner with impeccable taste and unparalleled knowledge about all the best vendors for any price point in literally every category based on exactly what you are looking for. From day one, she made me feel like I was the only wedding on her plate for the year.”
  • According to Dana, “Our daughter’s wedding (June 2017) was every parent’s dream come true. The Whiteface Club and Resort is an absolutely magical venue for a wedding ceremony and reception. The wedding garden was in full bloom which made the lakeside setting even more beautiful! Kristin is the most amazing event planner - she helped us with every aspect of the planning from providing us with vendor contacts to offering personal ideas.”
  • Lauren added, “Wow! What a day. Our wedding (June 2017) was everything we could have hoped it to be, and Kristin and her wonderful team at the Whiteface Club and Resort collaborated seamlessly to make it happen. As with most weddings, the planning started months in advance, and though we planned the wedding long distance, it felt easy and stress-free. By the time the big day came, everything was perfectly in place. The day of the wedding is busy, and Kristin helped to move us through the different phases so that we could get all the right pictures and were in the right places for the toasts and dances. Very helpful!”
To no surprise, Parker and her colleagues scored perfect 5s in the five categories of quality of service, responsiveness, professionalism, value and flexibility.

The Whiteface Club and Resort has also been honored by The Knot with its seventh consecutive Best of Weddings Award and Hall of Fame Award for 2017.

The Whiteface Club wedding ceremony, in a beautiful wedding garden, takes place before a stunning waterfront setting on the shore of Lake Placid, with the majesty of Whiteface Mountain serving as a natural backdrop.

These gardens are meticulously maintained by a dedicated staff whose singular goal is to beautify the entire property, with emphasis on preparation for the big day.

Couples also have the utmost confidence in the Whiteface Club’s reception and dining venue, complete with upscale menu choices provided by Executive Chef Matt Baldwin and his skilled staff.

The wedding experience may include rounds of golf for the wedding party and guests at the Whiteface Club. The tree-lined routing has been recognized by Golfweek Magazine as among New York State’s top-rated courses, and is part of the Resort Community of the Whiteface Club and Resort, now under development, including the new Forest Brook Estates sub-division. 

The Whiteface Club’s sister property, the AAA Four Diamond Mirror Lake Inn Resort and Spa, with its Four Diamond The View Restaurant, provide wedding guests with upscale lakeside lodging and dining experiences. They are separated by just three miles.
