Cedar Lakes Estate Wedding | Hudson Valley Wedding Venues
This Cedar Lakes Estate wedding in the heart of the Hudson Valley boasts the trifecta: early-fall foliage, perfect weather, and the most fun, photogenic couple from NYC you’ll ever meet! Selecting the right venue for your big day is one of the most important parts of wedding planning. The event space, aesthetic, amenities, and service all play into your overall wedding experience. We can’t think of a better upstate venue than Cedar Lakes Estate to host this magazine-worthy wedding day.
Cedar Lakes Estate Venue Aesthetic
Cedar Lakes Estate is the Hudson Valley family vacation home you never knew you had. In fact, that’s how this venue began. Co-founding sisters Stephanie and Lisa have fond childhood memories of exploring these pristine woods and soaking up the lakeside sun. Later, the sisters combined their entrepreneurial passions to turn their beloved childhood retreat into a wedding and event venue people travel to enjoy.
More than a venue, Cedar Lakes Estate also specializes in culinary creations, premier event planning, and retreat hosting. All for the love of sharing, living, and celebrating the best parts of life. Nothing brings people together like weddings and good food!
The sprawling estate features a variety of landscapes. 500 acres of Shawangunk Mountain views, lakeshore vistas, green hillsides, and evergreen forests sprinkled with deciduous foliage create endless backdrops. The founders have curated and styled a handful of the best views on the property for ceremony setups.

Cedar Lakes Farm-to-Table Dining & Catering
Lisa, one of Cedar Lake’s co-founders, knows a thing or two about culinary arts. This French Culinary Institute valedictorian was determined to make Cedar Lakes catering complement the top-tier style and service, and she exceeded expectations. All food is made from scratch, with most produce coming straight from the garden on the property or from nearby farms. With ingredients on-hand, they can create customized menus with bold, flavorful farm-to-table culinary creations.
Complete the experience with a meal in the middle of the garden. A full-length farm table and a canopy of string lights make this garden patio pure magic.

This spacious 5,400-square-foot barn is the crown jewel of this grand estate. Most couples select the barn for their reception space.
