Located in the heart of the Hudson Valley, Falkirk Estate is a wedding venue with amazing views and every amenity. With a backdrop of the Ramapo Mountains and lush waterfalls throughout the property, it’s a gem of a venue that is a perfect solution for couples who want to have their wedding in one stunning location.
If you opt for an outdoor ceremony, the most popular spot is their decorative wrought iron gazebo. Unlike many gazebos, this one almost looks like a delicate upside-down umbrella and is adorned with small white lights at night, making it an excellent place for night portraits. Indoors, you can get married in front of a spectacular mahogany fireplace in the main hall, which is both cozy and romantic in the winter months.
Photographic opportunities abound all over the property. Stone waterfalls, expansive fields, mature trees, and a barn with a beautiful chandelier installment and stone gatehouse provides a rustic feel. The light at sunset is breathtaking over the valley and is one of my favorite times to photograph there. With its fairytale-like winding paths throughout the property, it looks strikingly different in every season.
Falkirk can accommodate 75-300 guests comfortably and has a lovely outdoor paved area that is popular for cocktails and enjoying the views. The main ballroom, The Grand Estate, boasts floor to ceiling windows to show off the panoramic view and lets in amazing natural ambient light.
Reviews on this property often speak about the professionalism of the staff and the exquisite food, which is the proverbial cherry on top of this venue. They are absolutely on point at every turn, from making sure there is nothing left to chance and that every guest receives top-notch treatment. The grounds are perfection, the views breathtaking, and all your wedding dreams are attended to at Falkirk Estate.
