The Knot 2021 Best of Weddings recognition honors the vendors who went above and beyond to help to-be-weds navigate the global pandemic.

Considering the issues caused by the coronavirus last year, this exquisite wedding venue is ready to move forward with consideration for all wedding guests in mind.

“We’ll be fully compliant with all current New York State COVID-19 guidelines and protocols to insure the health and safety of our guests and staff,” said Mark Sperling, CEO of the Whiteface Companies. “We look forward to providing the best and safest wedding experiences in the Adirondacks.”

In 2021, only five percent of hundreds of thousands of local wedding professionals listed on The Knot received their distinguished Best of Weddings award. One of them was Kristin Parker, Whiteface Club’s Exclusive Wedding Planner and On-Site Catering Coordinator. In its 15th annual year, The Knot continues its long-standing tradition of supporting local wedding vendors with The Knot Best of Weddings 2021, an annual by-couples, for-couples guide to the top wedding professionals across the country. This comes as the industry prepares for an increase in upcoming celebrations due to postponed events throughout 2020.

“On behalf of all the staff at the Whiteface Club and Resort, we are so pleased to receive this honorable award again,” added Sperling. “This award reflects our continuous efforts, spearheaded by Kristin.” We truly LOVE what we do, and feel so lucky to be a part of such a special property. Thank you to all of our wedding couples who have chosen the Club as their wedding venue. We are here for you and now you are part of the Club’s family.”

“Kristin, the wedding planner, helped us pretty much every step of the way. She made everything much easier and stress free! The wedding itself was absolutely perfect. Multiple people have told me it was the best wedding they’ve ever been to.” – Adam R, 11/16/2020

“We decided that we wanted to do an outdoor ceremony in February 2020 with 150 people. Kristin was absolutely amazing!!! Her ideas for the day were way more than we could ever have imagined. The grounds were stunning. She even organized hot spiked beverages for guests before the ceremony started.” – Christine R, 10/22/2020

“Kristin and her team are amazing! The venue is gorgeous everywhere you look; inside, outside, and during all four seasons. I’ve photographed several weddings there, and I get excited every time I get an inquiry to shoot there again! From Kristin’s personal and thorough planning to the great food, classy and fun atmosphere, and endless photo ops, I highly recommend Whiteface Club & Resort.” – Sandy H, 10/18/2020
