&Andrew Nikolai W

hen a Brooklyn couple decides they want an outdoorsy wedding that features an intimate, natural environment with some water element, where do they go? For Kerri Croskey, an Omaha, Nebraska native and Andrew Nikolai, who grew up on Long Island, the choice was clear: Magnolia Streamside Resort in the Poconos. Andrew attended school in Boston while Kerri’s educational journey led her from Kansas to London. The couple met on the job in Boston before landing jobs in Manhattan. Andrew had visited the Poconos with his family as a child but Kerri had never been.

October 2, 2021 was a glorious weather kind of day. The couple wanted their wedding celebration to be an entire weekend of relaxed and wonderful memories. The cabins and suites provided perfect accommodations. When guests arrived on Friday, they enjoyed an outdoor bbq for lunch and fun food trucks for dinner, meeting the couple’s goal of having really good, unique food. The wedding ceremony and reception were both outdoors. Natural sunlight led to romantic candlelight and a clear tent allowed guests to enjoy a star-filled night sky. The outdoor ceremony was intimate and just what the couple had
