For brides and grooms with a casual-cool yet sophisticated sense of style, Keepsake at the Academy in Poughkeepsie is a new Hudson Valley wedding venue that has their names written all over it.

Keepsake is the crown jewel of The Academy, a much-anticipated multi-use development that opened in Poughkeepsie’s revitalized business district in 2022. Today, the expansive former undergarment factory is home to a food hall, grocery and retail boutique, coffee shop,  restaurant, bar, soon-to-be co-working space, and a stunning event venue—all under one roof.

Located on the building’s second floor, the impressive 8,700-square-foot Keepsake event venue has a dreamy, industrial-chic vibe that harkens back to the building’s industrial past. The open, airy layout features fun, sophisticated design elements like polished concrete floors, iron girders, and large warehouse-style windows that any stylish couple looking is sure to love.

But Keepsake is no cookie-cutter venue. Its wide-open, flexible spaces can easily accommodate both your formal wedding ceremony and the evening’s festivities.

You also have the freedom to decorate the space to the nines to match your dream wedding vibe—be it modern design installations, romantic lighting galore, or heavenly floral arrangements that transform the space into a veritable garden.

After getting ready in the luxe private suite, you can exchange your vows in front of the stately, Art Deco-style sliding wood doors in its main space.

After the ceremony, take the party over to the Bar for a refined cocktail hour while the Keepsake team seamlessly transforms the main space for an evening of dinner, drinks, and dancing. From intimate micro-weddings to those with up to 220 guests, the swoon-worthy dinner setup features natural oak-hued bentwood reception chairs and farmhouse tables adorned with modern tableware.

With the help of Keepsake’s in-house culinary team, you’ll have the expert resources to design a farm-to-table menu that your guests will be talking about long after your big day. Think house-made burrata with local heirloom tomatoes, beef tenderloin with parsnips, trumpet mushrooms, and black truffle jus, and harissa-spiced cauliflower steak with a tahini-dressed chickpea and kale salad.

Work with their sommelier to create the pitch-perfect wine list or team up with their mixologist to design your own cocktail—like the Thyme for My Honey with vodka and elderflower liqueur—for your guests to sip on while they dance the night away.
