I absolutely love capturing weddings in Upstate NY and after getting multiple emails from couples asking about the best wedding venues in the Catskills I decided to put together this list. For a truly unique and memorable wedding experience with only a short drive from Manhattan you won’t regret having your wedding at any of these beautiful wedding venues.
The Inn at West Settlement
The wedding party spends the weekend in the six bedroom inn with sauna, Jacuzzi, eat in kitchen, large living room and rocking chair porch. For your ceremony you can choose a spot out by the pond in the open meadow or on the blue stone front steps of the Inn. For your reception you can set a tent in the yard or use our fabulous 40’x100′ barn with its soaring ceilings, perfect for bands and dancing. You can bring in your own caterer, or our event coordinator can make suggestions of area businesses that supply food grown and produced locally. Complete privacy! Events with music and dancing go uninterrupted until they reach their own conclusion. –The Inn at West Settlement
Maple Shade Farm
Maple Shade Farm offers a private country setting with just the right balance of natural beauty and easy elegance, the perfect destination for your rustic chic or elegant unique wedding.Indoor and outdoor spaces offer magnificent ceremony and reception options. Dressed up or dressed down to match your style and decor choices, Maple Shade Farm is that special location that will provide you with memories that will last a lifetime. –Maple Shade Farm
Full Moon Resort
Imagine family and friends in a flowered field, on a hillside, in a rustic barn, or beneath a white wedding tent on a grand lawn, gathered in celebration of one of life’s most precious moments. A red-tailed hawk soars high overhead, as the gentle waters of the Esopus Creek spill over moss-covered rocks in the distance. The mountains of the Catskill Park rise up all around. The ceremony, a vision of love and harmony, is entirely the couple’s creation -as has been every facet of this joyous event.
There is no such thing as a “typical” wedding at Full Moon; however, the common thread is attention to the client’s unique needs. From the initial planning to the farewell brunch, Full Moon’s staff works closely with each couple to help bring their personal vision to life. –Full Moon Resort
The Roxbury Barn
With its old-world grandeur and stunning natural environment, The Roxbury Barn is the perfect setting for a laid-back, idyllic celebration. Events can be scheduled from early May till mid October. We host only one Full Day Event each weekend, and offer the possibility of a Midweek Elopement.
Our 164-year old bank barn is built against a cliff, with the lower floor only exposed on the backside. The event spaces in the barn are on the middle and top floor. The middle floor opens up to a tree-lined lawn with a lily pond, through two large barn doors. –The Roxbury Barn
