The Ultimate Venue Guide


Frost Valley YMCA  

Catskills Climbers

Frost Valley YMCA
The grounds and lodging at this 110-year-old Catskills retreat are ideal for outdoorsy weddings—that is, when summer camp isn’t in session. The dining hall and conference center can be converted into rustic reception venues (fitting up to 600 and 130, respectively), or tent the lawn to celebrate outside. The Y’s Lakeview Lodge offers hotel-like accommodations, and zip lines and rope courses are available if you want to make a weekend of it. Most opt for outside catering (the camp is dry, so make sure whichever caterer you choose has a liquor license). Site fees start at $1,300. 2000 Frost Valley Rd., Claryville, N.Y.; 845-985-2291; frostvalley.org


The Greenbelt Nature Center  

The Greenbelt Nature Center
Made up of wetlands, forest, golf courses, and some 35 miles of hiking trails, the 2,800-acre Staten Island Greenbelt is one of the city’s most underrated natural resources. The park’s six-year-old nature center is steadily building a reputation as a destination for low-key, ecohappy nuptials. Both the terrace and an indoor event space are available for receptions; for ceremonies, couples pretty much have their pick of the park. Site fees range from $200 to $325 per hour. 700 Rockland Ave., at Brielle Ave., Staten Island; 718-351-3450; sigreenbelt.org
