Hayyyy Girl! Our Top 5 Venues for your Barnyard Bash

Even though the Planestry team is almost entirely born and raised in NYC and Long Island, we have been known to throw on some country music and line dance around the office from time to time.

Don’t judge us.

That being said, we understand that when choosing a wedding venue, many of our brides-to-be desire an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city life.  Some rustic charm, acres of farmland, and maybe even a cow or two.  We’ve comprised a list of high end barn venues that are within driving distance of the NY Metro area.

Located in the Hudson Valley, Cedar Lake Estates offers a personalized wedding with rustic elegance in a natural setting.
