Just over a year ago we moved upstate, 40 miles north of New York City, to Peekskill. What drew me to the area was stunning landscape, amazing bluffs overlooking the majestic Hudson River. We spend many weekends hiking around the area and I cannot get enough of the views, they are breathtaking. What better backdrop to get married in front of than the natural beauty of the Hudson river. Here are five wedding venues in the lower Hudson Valley region that take advantage of the scenic landscape.
