The Garrison in New York is hands-down one of our favorite venues in the Hudson Valley region. If you’re searching for a contemporary, minimalist room with a view that can accommodate up to 200 guests, look no further!
The Garrison boasts an incredible view of the Hudson Valley which can be seen as the backdrop for either an indoor or outdoor ceremony. This gives you a great option in case of rain. This view is also visible throughout the cocktail hour and reception rooms, with their floor-to-ceiling windows.
LOCATION AND GROUNDS
The Garrison is located in Putnam County, one hour north of New York City. It is set among 300 acres. The breathtaking valley view is a must as a backdrop. They also have colorful flowers in the spring, summer and autumn. The grounds always look manicured and pretty. The 18-hole golf course features mature trees and fields. There is also a natural stone gazebo that lends itself perfectly to family and couple portraits. There are golf carts available to save steps and make the best use of your time. This gives you options for finding secret little hideaway spots.
The Garrison Inn has four tranquil guest rooms where you and your family can stay overnight. These rooms are extremely convenient for the bride and groom to get dressed and prepared. We often arrive just as the bride is getting finishing touches on hair and makeup. There is a day spa for hair and makeup right on the premises. The well-lit rooms provide a calming and comfortable place for all the wedding party preparations.
Two restaurants offer some of our very favorite food. Their seasonal menu changes according to what is ripe and fresh. Since they have a vegetable garden behind the inn, much of it is fresh-picked. They also get food from local farmers. Ulysses and I love eating food that locally-grown, locally-raised, and locally-prepared. If you’re a health foodie, this is your place! The wedding meals here have been some of the freshest, tastiest we’ve had.
SPECIAL GARRISON WEDDING
Everything has deep significance to this bride, which made it a complete joy to photograph all the nuances of emotion and expression of this sensational autumn wedding. Although there was a threat of heavy rain on their day, they were ecstatic to see a beautiful sunset over the magnificent Hudson River. I just love her pure joy shown in this lovely, romantic black and white pic. Her smile as she looks back at her groom feels natural and effortless. The wildflower field behind them contributes to the organic feel. When I look at the photo, I am right back in that moment.
