Anna Elethorp & Tyler Cole
Anna Elethorp and Tyler Cole were wed on July 2, 2011 on the top of Mount Defiance, with a majestic view of Fort Ticonderoga and Lake Champlain as their setting.
The couple was surrounded by their immediate family, while Judge Jim O’Bryan delivered their vows. After the ceremony, they shared shooters as their specialty drink, purchased at Montcalm Liquors. Decorations were white rose petals and hand-made summer bouquets, arranged by the bride’s mother; materials were purchased at the Dollar Tree and Joanne Fabrics.
The reception was held at the Elks Pavilion, where they were greeted by family, friends, and their dog Stihl. They enjoyed a full catered pig roast, horseshoes, and dancing; music was by Paul Ferguson, or DJ Fergy, of Clemons. The cake was hand-sprayed mossy oak and camouflage, made by Jo Denno, in addition to a sheet cake, with a pink browning deer, from Sam’s Club.
The bride wore a custom made, white satin gown from Camo Formals of Louisiana. Alongside her was her maid of honor in purple, to match the groom and groomsmen that wore mossy oak vests, with pink and purple ties, from Fashion Corner. Hair was done by A Cut Above Salon, rings were purchased from Sears and Kay Jewelers, the maid of honor’s necklace was from Rathbun’s, while the bride wore earth-tone pearls purchased from Wal-Mart Jewelry. The bride’s flowers were detailed, by Francine of the Country Florist, with white roses from her mother’s bridal bouquet and finalized with red, white, and blue ribbon taken from her grandfather’s service medals.
The Rehearsal Dinner
A rehearsal dinner barbecue was held at the home of the bride’s parents.
At the ceremony, “A Song for my Daughter,” by Ray Allaire, was chosen by the father of the bride as she made her entrance. Decorations at the reception were also mossy oak/camo themed, with pink and purple accents, as well as a variety of hunting-related decorations. The wedding day was photographed by Peggy Lamb, of Ticonderoga. The bride and her party got ready at the Belfred Motel, where her bridal party later stayed.
Following the wedding day, the newlyweds, family and friends went tubing down the Schroon River. They currently reside in Chilson with their newborn son, Jaxson.
