Rustic Romance on the Hudson: Red Maple Vineyard Weddings

Featuring the Wedding of Emily and Jason

If you are searching for a wedding venue that exudes rustic charm, offers breathtaking views and the perfect blend of nature and convenience, Red Maple Vineyard in West Park, NY should be at the top of your list. This family-owned-and-operated venue, located in the middle of the historic Hudson Valley, is sure to provide a unique and memorable experience for you and your guests. I have shot there multiple times and the charm and beauty of the location is simply addicting for any wedding photographer.

Red Maple Vineyard sits on 143-acres of diverse and vibrant property on the banks of the Hudson River, featuring a renovated 1800’s cow barn, stone foundation ruins, reception pavilion, wine cellar, forests, walking trails, vineyards, vegetable gardens, and a small orchard. The picturesque setting offers endless possibilities for your wedding.

The venue is dedicated to the farm-to-table philosophy, sourcing from the land whenever possible, including seasonal produce from the organic vegetable garden, estate-made wines, mead and house-made cider, and a Saison made with sap from the maple trees. This results in a truly unique and memorable experience that your guests will appreciate.

The venue also partners with Corner Stone Caterers, who takes care of all the event planning, ensuring that you can enjoy your special day without any hassle. They offer custom menus that cater to any allergies or dietary restrictions, and an intimate tasting will ensure your approval of the final menu.

One of the highlights of the venue is their ceremony space perched on a hilltop that overlooks the Hudson River and provides breathtaking views. The natural light that floods the space and the scenic views provide a perfect backdrop for the most important part of the day, the ceremony. This location offers an intimate and romantic atmosphere, and as a photographer, I can attest that the view is a unique feature that makes it stand out among other venues.

The reception barn can accommodate up to 300 guests, and features large glass windows that allow natural light to flood the space, providing a beautiful setting for your reception. The venue is open from mid-April to mid-November, providing you the opportunity to enjoy the natural beauty of the Hudson Valley in different seasons.

Red Maple Vineyard is more than just a venue, it's an experience. The picturesque setting, ceremony space with river view, dedication to farm-to-table philosophy, and excellent event planning services make it one of the best venues in the Hudson Valley Region. I hope to return every season at least once.
