Carlyanna and her hubby, Cody, were married on a warm May day this year, with their ceremony in our garden tent and their reception and cocktail hour in our main ballroom. But, before The Century House even popped into their head, there had to be a proposal! We were charmed by Carlyanna and Cody’s engagement story. Although working together in Albany led to their first date, it was camping on Thompson’s Lake that inspired Cody to pop the question. Adamant that Carlyanna come fishing one morning, Cody told her he loved her, and got down on one knee. The romantic moment of Cody kneeling with the ring was interrupted when he slipped and fell into a pile of mud! Though the future groom was drenched in dirt, and the morning was turning stormy with weather alert texts, the couple’s engagement brought unmatchable sunshine into the day.
Before they said “I do”, Carlyanna and Cody were frequent diners at The Century House. If you ask Carlyanna, she’ll tell you everything is always “cooked to perfection and extremely high quality”. When asked what her favorite things were about her wedding beyond the food, she replied, “The waitstaff was nothing short of amazing!” The food and service, along with the Century House’s location, and the relationships built with our wedding planners make for a winning combination!
Color, theme, and details are among the most important aspects of setting the tone for a wedding reception. Carlyanna and Cody celebrated their special day surrounded by a glamourous scheme of black, ivory, silver, and malibu blue. The couple especially loved having a separate sweetheart table. The “atmosphere of the rooms flowed so well”, said Carlyanna. From the stunning chandeliers in the tent and an overall amazing view from the aisle, the garden setting at The Century House was “absolutely breathtaking”. Speaking of stunning views, perhaps the most noticeable was the beautiful bride, Carlyanna wearing a princess ball gown with a sweetheart neckline and lace sleeves.
Tying the Knot Tips
This wouldn’t be an inside scoop without some advice from the couple to future brides and grooms. They proposed that one must “remember to breathe during the wedding planning process. Share responsibilities between both partners, and lastly, stay the way you are...that’s the reason you are getting married!”
