Overview: The majestic landscape of Boscobel House and Gardens in Garrison will leave guests in awe. “The views are what really make us unique,” says Colleen Fogarty, private events manager at Boscobel. Built in the early 1800s, Boscobel was originally the dream house of wealthy Loyalists. After falling into disrepair in the 1950s, preservationists saved as many architectural fragments as possible and reassembled them 15 miles north, where the Neoclassical mansion was restored back to — and even beyond — its original grandeur. Today, elegant wedding ceremonies are held on the front lawn of the mansion, on the west meadow, or (for more intimate ceremonies) in the enclosed rose garden. With 600 rose bushes and a water fountain, the rose garden is also ideal for a cocktail hour. The reception tent sits on the west meadow, overlooking Constitution Marsh toward the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, showcasing dramatic views of the Hudson River.
The Cost: The ceremony and reception fee starts at $8,250 (for 50 guests, daytime).
