Upstate NY Wedding Venues
Since Hudson Valley and the rest of Upstate New York are home to so many beautiful wedding venues, we thought it was time to highlight a few more of our favorites. In case we haven’t met, we are Jesse and Rebecca Turnquist. We are a husband and wife photography and videography team that has captured romantic images and films for Hudson Valley weddings for over a decade! In our work, we have visited dozens and dozens of wedding venues in the area. We’ve compiled more of our favorite wedding venues for Hudson Valley couples:
The event space…
Basilica Hudson is a wedding and event venue located in Hudson, NY. The venue is a reimagined 19-century factory that sits along the Hudson River. There are both indoor and outdoor venue spaces available. In the warmer months, you can have an outdoor ceremony with the beautiful brick building as a backdrop. Basilica Hudson is conveniently located within walking distance to hotels and Airbnbs in Hudson, NY. The indoor space has an industrial feel and features tall ceilings and large windows that allow natural light to pour in. You can create a unique floor plan for your wedding and work with the venue to implement your design.
Locally-made chairs are included in the rental fee, along with multiple movable bars. Basilica Hudson also has many other rentals available, including farm tables, wood folding chairs, bistro lighting, a DJ system, and projector that can be included in your site rental package. The space is easy to make your own with lighting and decor!

The Sablewood at Highview Springs
The Sablewood is a wedding venue just 35 minutes outside of Albany, NY and about 3 hours from NYC or Boston. This venue is located in the Schoharie Valley in the northern Catskill Mountains. The property features beautiful outdoor spaces as well as a restored historical barn. The Sablewood barn was once a functional barn that housed farm animals. Today, you can still see the original beams that local craftsmen hand-hewed. The views from the property are remarkable—rolling hills and the picturesque Catskill Mountains along with lush fields and bright stars at night.
You can host your wedding at The Sablewood year-round. In the warmer months, there is an outdoor ceremony space, as well as a patio for a cocktail hour. During the cooler months or in case of bad weather, the indoor space can be separated for your ceremony and reception. You’ll have exclusive use of the property on your wedding day, as well as setup time, on-site parking, and an incredible support team. Venue rental also includes gorgeous farm tables and chairs for 250 guests. View one of our recent Sablewood weddings on the blog.
