@ScooterBride: FI and I are getting married at Fort William Henry in Lake George and we couldn’t be more thrilled about it. The ceremony is held outside in a gazebo overlooking the lake and the cocktail hour and reception are inside their tavern and ballroom. We were able to negotiate a phenomenal price so if you do decide to look into FWH don’t let the online prices scare you away. They WILL do their best to work with your budget.

Hi ScooterBride! How many people are you looking for? I have been doing a lot of research and can probably offer some suggestions.

Okay, here are some ideas based on the psycho amount of research I am doing for my own wedding. These all should let you use your own caterer:

-RPI Barn (http://www.rpitechpark.com/parknews.php) – $1400ish rental I believe but then you can do your own catering

-Arkell Museum (http://www.arkellmuseum.org/siterental.html) – a bit to the west but driving a bit gets MUCH cheaper prices. Can be inside museum or tented outside.

-Thatcher Park (http://nysparks.state.ny.us/parks/128/details.aspx) – very affordable option, can rent pavilions, not sure about setting up tents

I’m going to try and think of more. 🙂

We are going with the Canfield Casino in Congress Park in Saratoga Springs. You can have the ceremony inside or outside by one of the fountains. You get to choose your outside vendor, they can give you suggestions, but you can pick anyone you like. You are really just paying for the place, like a hall back in the day, and then it’s up to you to supply everything else.

Try the Appel Inn in Altamont.  I also liked the Pruyn House but the Appel in has everything they have and more.   I am getting married at the Appel Inn in June!

Oh yes, Appel Inn and Altamont Manor are both very nice and close to Albany.
