The Hudson Valley is one of the top destination wedding areas in the United States. The reasons are many, The beautiful Hudson River, The Catskill Mountains and there historic landmarks and ski resorts are all so close to New York City that people can attend your wedding without difficult travel. Hunter and Windham Mountains are amazing. And just 35 minutes east is the Hudson River with its beautiful and magical feel. The Hudson Valley now has very little industry left and has turned as the place to be for beauty and art. The venues range from stately mansions to old barns reclaimed and just perfect for a rustic wedding. Over the years we at Aperture Photography have photographed in every setting the Hudson Valley and the Catskills have.
