Putnam County is the sweet spot for a lower Hudson Valley wedding, just 60 miles from Manhattan, a short hop by train yet a world away, all craggy Hudson Highlands charm. In Putnam, you’ll find wedding venue options ranging from sumptuous elegance to rustic charm and any combination of the two, historic architecture and cutting-edge amenities, all within easy striking distance for both out-of-town guests and a vast selection of wedding vendors.

If you’re planning to make a weekend of it, you and your guests will have access to superb hiking and golf, skiing and snow-tubing, and the many artistic and culinary charms of Cold Spring. There’s the lovely Clarence Fahnstock State Park, with a beach for summer and slopes for winter, and the Western hemisphere’s largest indoor Buddha statue at Chuang Yen Monastery.

The coordination and planning services at these award-winning Putnam County wedding venues are skilled, warm, and welcoming, whether you’re working with their wedding vendors or bringing in your own. Want to make your special day a lifetime memory for yourselves and all your loved ones? Read on...


Glynwood is a 250-acre working farm and research center framed by splendid views of pastureland, forest, and orchard. Choose from rustic (18th-century farmhouse, classic red barn) and refined (stunning 1920s manor home) options for your gatherings and photo-ops, secure in the knowledge that Glynwood's approved chefs and caterers know exactly how to make the best of the fine fresh produce grown right on site and that experts will make sure your cleanup will be sustainably managed, with zero waste and carbon offset for large gatherings.


Boscobel House and Gardens is billed as “your home on the Hudson,” and they’re good at helping you feel that way. The Neoclassical mansion offers stunning views of Constitution Marsh, the Hudson River, West Point Academy, and the Catskill Mountains. Your guests will gasp in delight as they enter the tree-lined drive and all over again as they catch sight of the formal gardens and river. Third-party service providers are welcomed, although there’s a list of suggestions to pick from if you need help. Listed as “The Best Place for a Wedding” in the Best of The Hudson Valley Guide, Boscobel offers a mix-n-match selection of indoor, outdoor, grand, and intimate spaces for your wedding day.

The Garrison

The Garrison offers a comprehensive package that takes the worry out of planning with open bar, passed cocktails and hors d'oeuvres, a champagne toast, a three or four-course meal accompanied by select wines, and a "magnificent wedding cake,” with an emphasis on seasonal and local ingredients. The river views are superb, as are the indoor spaces designed by award-winning minimalist Tony Chi; both interior and exterior beauty come together in the River Room, with an elegant neutral color palette accented by floor-to-ceiling windows offering dramatic views of the Hudson. Outside you’ll find stone-flagged terraces and an 18-hole golf course, and the onsite inn offers four overnight rooms for the bridal party.

Highlands Country Club

Highlands Country Club, established in 1898 as an elegant family recreation destination, blends old-world charm and elegance with modern chic touches to offer an “elevated rustic” aesthetic. A 17th-century Dutch barn sits next to a pond, and at the property’s center you'll find a breathtaking ballroom with a crystal chandelier, huge dual fireplaces, and oversized mirrors, a glass-enclosed solarium, a stone verandah with a fire pit and more. The dedicated “preparations suite” offers a spacious, elegant spot to preen yourselves to perfection before walking down the aisle, and the property hosts just one wedding per day so you won't have to rush in or rush out.

Sedgewood Club

The Sedgewood Golf and Tennis Club of Putnam County was founded by an alliance of elegant sporting folk in 1928 and is a private community that feels like an idyllic slice of the Adirondacks on a secluded hilltop in Carmel, surrounded by 1,200 acres of wild land. You can reserve their 7,000-square-foot boathouse or gingerbread-style clubhouse for your wedding, and there are countless covered and uncovered outdoor locations with glorious views for your photo op. Guests can play a round of golf on the nine-hole golf course, hit up the tennis courts, or a dip in the crystalline China Lake after the festivities. Sedgewood offer catering, bartending, and cleanup, or you can bring your choice of vendors.

Villa Barone Hilltop Manor

Want to marry like royalty? Villa Barone Hilltop Manor can handle from 50 to 500 wedding guests in stunning splendor in its palatial lakefront setting with truly grand Grand Ballroom. Then there are the Roman gardens, gazebo, and the 40-foot waterfall. They do the catering themselves, but when you read the Grand Deluxe Wedding Menu you may well decide you don't mind. Ice sculpture? Butler-passed hors d'oeuvres? They've got this. A second-generation family-run endeavor, Villa Barone Hilltop Manor spares no detail in spoiling you silly on your special day.
