Touring the Catskills and the eastern side of the Hudson for the perfect Hudson Valley wedding venue makes for an idyllic odyssey, but you can shave miles off your many trips north by visiting a dozen of the region’s best venues at Wedding Crashers. On Sunday, Sept. 8, we’ll be throwing our first-ever Hudson Valley edition of our NYC wedding fair at Basilica Hudson in Hudson, NY.

The teams from these 12 venues will be on site to answer all the questions you have about planning your nuptials north of the city, and the train ride makes for an easy day trip where you can learn more about the most popular and brand-new Hudson Valley wedding venues in one place. Quite a few have only a few openings left for 2020, so you’ll want to secure your date, stat.

Basilica Hudson is a beautiful, industrial chic space that was once a forge and foundry for steel railway wheels. It has since been converted into a majestic arts and events venue filled with windows that let light pour into the 7,000 square feet of indoor space. Unlike other Hudson-area venues that may only be able to accommodate a small number for a rehearsal dinner or brunch, Basilica is available to rent for the entire weekend so you can host all of your weddings events here.
