Embrace Winter

We Do: Making Your Wedding Uniquely Yours

When Mallory Wetstone of Norwalk, Conn. was a student at Skidmore College, she fell in love with Longfellows Restaurant and Hotel—even before she met the man of her dreams. Dining there one night with her visiting parents, she said to them, “This is such a beautiful place to get married; I would love to get married here.’ And a couple of years later I actually did get married there.” Mallory met her now-husband, Jeff, in college, and on July 12, 2014 they came back to Saratoga to tie the knot at Longfellows. They made a trip to Saratoga last year to do some of the groundwork, and did...
