Alysea McDonald and Pary Palanisamy celebrated their #bestdayever TWICE!  The first in Tiruchengode, India,where Pary's family is from, and where Pary spent his summers growing up. About 20 American friends and family travelled abroad for this international celebration.Their US wedding was one month later, on February 23, 2019 with their American family and friends at Ridgecrest on a dreamy winter day.

The ceremony was held at Our Lady Queen of Peace Church in Brodheadsville, PA, and was followed by the mountaintop reception at Stroudsmoor.  The event was accented by delicate pink and crimson florals, created by the talented Floral and Décor Team at Stroudsmoor, Indian and Stroudsmoor signature cuisine, banana walnut wedding cake, craft beer and cocktails, and a candy station with sweet treats selected by the bride and groom.  All this and more, made the celebration enjoyable and more importantly a memory for each and every guest.

Bride Alysea McDonald had this to say about the day, “I have to confess that when I started the planning process last year, I didn’t want to come to the Stroudsmoor, because I had already been to so many (great!) events there, having grown up in Stroudsburg. I was hoping to find something new and different, but the Stroudsmoor Team quickly assured me that their expertise, full service and attentive staff was not only the best option, but you that they could make our day special, even if I thought I knew the Stroudsmoor.”

Alysea went on to say, “The Stroudsmoor allowed us to stay local while also giving us the best service and highest quality. . . I could go on - but thank you thank you thank again. I’m so happy I could show off Stroudsburg to our friends and family and the Stroudsmoor now holds an even more special place in our hearts!”

The Stroudsmoor family is proud and excited to share the “Real Wedding Story of Alysea and Pary’s wedding celebrations very soon. Follow us for more on their beautiful journey.
