Upstate NY Wedding Venues

You really cannot beat having a wedding in Upstate NY. There are all sorts of wedding venues. Whether you want your wedding at a historic location or at an old bank, on a farm or in a barn, in the city or in the country, on a lake or in the mountains, in an orchard or in a museum, they are all possibilities in the greater Capital District and The North Country. When you combine all the varying wedding venue styles with the fact that Upstate NY has four REAL seasons  - there are unlimited possibilities. No matter what wedding 'look' you have in mind - you can get it here.

Of course where is Upstate NY?  Always a conundrum. According to non-New Yorkers, it is any place north of NYC. However, Westchester and the lower Hudson Valley are not "really' considered upstate to those of us that have lived there. I love designing for weddings in those areas as well, but for the purpose of this entry I will concentrate on points from Albany, NY and north.

Below I am going to highlight just a few of my favorites...but there are so many more! I have personal experience designing flowers at all of these wedding venues...and for any that you may find in your searches that I have not - no worries - I spend most of my free time studying all things wedding related - so go ahead and call me a wedding dork if you want :-)
