Hi there! My name is Jaclyn and I just recently got engaged. Since I am from the Albany area and his family is from Rochester, we were looking to have our wedding somewhere in-between. We are anticipating about 200 people and have just started looking in the Finger Lakes region, Ithaca, Syracuse, etc. Ideally, we would like some aspect of our wedding outside, perferably next to a lake, but are open to different suggestions as long as the surrounding landscape is gorgeous (think mountains, lush gardens, flowers, etc). There are many gorgeous places for an outside ceremony but I've had trouble finding one that also has an elegant banquet facility (many look plain and uninspiring even with decorations). Any and ALL help would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you!
