Hudson Valley + Catskills Wedding Venues That I Love! | NY Wedding Photographer

The “official” engagement season has just past, so congratulations to all of you who are newly engaged! Now what’s next?! One of the first steps in wedding planning is figuring out when and where to get married, so I wanted to share a venues in/around the Hudson Valley area that I’ve worked at and absolutely LOVED. As a vendor that sees the behind-the-scenes action, I had an awesome experience at each of these venues and would 100% recommend them based on not just being a beautiful setting, but running the event smoothly, helpful staff, and a general environment of respect and positivity. Happy wedding planning!!

Two Hearts Vineyard at Magnanini Winery

This is my faaaavorite winery, the grounds are gorgeous! They have two locations for weddings, Two Hearts Vineyard, which is a tented outdoor location among the vines, or Magnanini Winery itself. Must see if you’re looking for a winery wedding! Visit their website here.

Magnanini Winery Restaurant

If a tented wedding isn’t your jam, Magnanini Winery also has the option of hosting weddings in their restaurant. Same gorgeous grounds, plus their amazing, delicious menu and a beautiful ceremony location. Visit their website here.

Mount Gulian Historic Site

Mount Gulian is a hidden gem in Beacon, NY with a beautiful view of the Hudson River! Cocktail hour on the lawn during sunset and a rustic barn wedding reception, perfection. Visit their website here.
