This historic Hudson Valley site in Putnam County features a Neoclassical mansion, lush gardens, an orchard, and sweeping Hudson River views. When you think swamp, you don’t normally think wedding, but Constitution Marsh is truly the perfect backdrop for “I do” photos thanks to its winding turns and unique beauty. At Boscobel, choose the Formal Garden or the Forecourt for colorful garden celebrations, but opt for the West Meadow if you’re on the hunt for the water views. Located between the property’s historic buildings and lush gardens, this venue features a 5,000-square-foot air-conditioned pavilion with a canopied terrace that can accommodate up to 250 guests. When it comes to catering, clients can choose between Florrie Kaye’s in Carmel, Great Performances in New York City, ONTHEMARC in Stamford, Connecticut, or Above and Beyond Catering in Dumont, New Jersey.
