The Laura Lee PhotographyTop 9 Hudson Valley venues for couples who want to escape the ballroom.
A favourite thing I do at a wedding is that I can always be with lucky souls. And not only that, but it is usually also in some very nice places! My favourite place to photograph adventuresome, funny pairs - especially in the lovely, scenic Hudson Valley. Today I want to divide my top 9 favourite places in Hudson Valley for all those pairs who want to flee the traditional ballgam.
The locations are stunning and form the setting for some of the most amazing wedding photographs. In addition, these venues take you outside the auditorium into the Hudson Valley's magnificent countryside, which is the ideal getaway from the turmoil of the town. Hopefully this article will help you find the ideal place for your next adventures.
When you have a question or fell in loving one of these places, I would like to talk to you! I' ve got to say, Red Maple Vineyard could be one of my favourite places of all times! At the beginning the view from the place of the wedding is breath-taking. There are meandering streams, gentle slopes and wonderful mountain scenery as far as you can see.
There are so many great places to photograph all over the site. The vineyard, the hidden gardens, the swings on the old trees, the top of the hill with a view of the valley and the old stonewalls - each part of this estate is just awaiting you! They are so supportive and there to prepare your wedding the best possible date.
You will find an extraordinary meal with produce from Hudson Valley farmers and sellers. Obviously, I like companies that help other small companies! During the wedding of Kiren and Micah, a wedding I took a photo of there in June 2018, the welcome marquee was built up so nicely with light chains, cathedrals and other great decorations that it offered a great ambience after the wedding celebration.
So I believe they have plans to do build on the recording room after this time of year of the wedding and I am thrilled to see what they are doing to make this belongings even more dreamy.

Blue Hill at Stone Barns was once a Rockefeller estate and is one of the most wonderful places I have ever been! Featuring over 100 hectares of arable land and landscaped grounds, this wonderfully tended estate is the ideal setting for those who want to get away from the town. It takes place in the inner court in front of a nice old oak wood.
It' the foundation stone of the real estate. Jaclyn and Colin's portrait of the courtyard and garden proved breathtaking during the gold age. All in all, this location is simply unbelievable!

Situated in the Catskill Mountains, Onteora is a breathtaking place overlooking the wonderful mountains from the ground to the top.

Well - Mountain Springs Like isn't exactly in Hudson Valley, but because I really like this place so much, I had to put it on that itinerary. Lake Mountain Springs is the ideal place for lovers of mountain and lake! This large plot offers a wonderful view of the neighbouring hill and is especially breathtaking in autumn, when the leaves have reached their apex.
The many small huts are one of the best sides of this area.
