I recently got engaged and my fiance and I are thinking about having a wedding at a historic hudson valley site- either Phillipsburg Manor or Van Cortlant Manor. Has anyone had a wedding there? What are your thoughts? Did you have, or wish you had, a wedding planner? I am a bit worried about the lack of structure/wedding support since they don’t specialize in planning weddings.
Any feedback would be so helpful.

I looked at Phillipsburg Manor and it is lovely. Gorgeous bridge, nice barn BUT there are live farm animals there and the evidence of them is quite apparent. Scat on the ground and the smell… I didn’t know that going in and was a little surprised by it.
Sunnyside is also very pretty but really close to the train track – FYI. Some people might not be bothered by it, but when I went at about 3:00 on a Sunday, there were 3 trains that passed by.

I think Bard College does wedding receptions. They have beautiful views of the Hudson and Catskills.
