Kaitlin and Freddy R. - 7.16.16

Kaitlin and Freddy came to Wisp Resort knowing exactly what they wanted for their wedding: a huge celebration of love in an elegant, classic style. With a Mountain Top ceremony, dinner and dancing in the McHenry Lodge, and help from the Wisp Staff and some incredible vendors, they achieved just that.

About the Couple

The couple shares an intimate moment in a lush surrounding.

Kaitlin and Freddy met during their freshmen years of college at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown, and were engaged in December of 2014. The bride grew up spending summers at Deep Creek Lake, as her grandfather has a cottage on the lake. She always dreamed of getting married at the lake, but never thought it would be an option. In July of 2016 her dream came true at Wisp Resort.

The Wedding

Kaitlin and Freddy are pronounced Husband and Wife! 

The couple chose to say their vows at Wisp Resort’s Mountain Top and celebrate with a reception at the McHenry Lodge.  The magical ceremony was kicked off by a surprise horse-drawn carriage for Kaitlin! The parents of the bride surprised their daughter with the ride just moments before Kaitlin was to make her grand entrance.  The processional was made even more unforgettable when the bride and groom’s boxers, Ralph and Reba, made their way down the aisle.

When the ceremony came to an end, the newlyweds making their way back down the aisle to Florida Georgia Line’s “H.O.L.Y.,” the guests and wedding party headed down the mountain to the McHenry Lodge, where Joelle of Wedding Elegance by Joelle had created a breathtaking space for the 330 guests to celebrate the couple. The centerpiece of the space: a bejeweled cake-pop cake by Christine of Harvest Moon Bakery.

A cocktail hour in Wispers Bar and outside on the deck at the McHenry Lodge featured the couple’s signature cocktails and hors d’oeuvres selections of bacon wrapped scallops, prosciutto wrapped asparagus and tomato bruschetta.  The Wisp staff served a buffet dinner of chicken piccata, broiled flounder with crab imperial and roasted round top sirloin before dancing broke out for the rest of the evening.        

From the Bride

“When it came down to picking a wedding location it was easy to pick the Wisp. No matter what, either the bride or groom’s families would have to travel. We made an executive decision to have a “mini” destination wedding, so that both families would have to travel and no one’s feelings would be hurt. The Wisp was the first and only place we visited.”

Making Memories

A charming and unique mode of transportation for the Bride and Groom.

The bride and groom’s families rented homes on the mountain for the wedding weekend, and took advantage of all the Deep Creek Lake area has to offer. They rented a boat and jet skis to get out on the water, and rode the Mountain Coaster and chair lift here at Wisp Resort. The group enjoyed rounds of miniature golf with their guests and raced go-karts. And, of course, a wedding weekend at the Lake would not be complete without a celebration at the local hot spot, Honi-Honi Bar!
