Introducing Keepsake at THE Academy

Nestled in the heart of the Hudson Valley, Keepsake is the most breathtaking, chic wedding venue for couples who are looking for more than your average event space. We welcome you to host an unforgettable reception and ceremony, adding your own chapter to the property’s historic history.

Facilities and Capacity

The city-romantic reception space features impressive 20' ceilings accented with bright white structured beams and Edison-bulb lighting. The glowing natural light invited by the panoramic pane windows warms the natural oak farmhouse-styled tables and chairs, exposed brick, and modern brushed brass scones. With the ability to welcome 250 seated guests or up to 500 standing guests, we ensure no one needs to miss out on the fun.

Couples can arrange the space as they wish, empowering you to get creative and think big when planning your event. The spacious wedding suite is available for the party to use as a get-ready space, or simply to take a moment’s pause from the event.

Photo opportunities range from posing in front of our breathtaking murals by Surface of Beauty, inside our intimate private outdoor patio, and only steps away from the gorgeous Hudson Valley River views.

Excited for future!

My recent tour of Keepsake was an exceptional experience thanks to the support provided by Heather. She was so friendly and made us feel welcomed from the minute we entered the space. She answered all of our questions and you could tell she has years of experience. Her insightful suggestions made us feel confident and comfortable. The event space itself was breathtaking. Heather not only acted as a sales representative but also as a trusted advisor and we are excited to see what the future holds.

Heather is amazing!

While we didn't pick this venue as our final choice due to logistics and cost, we have nothing but amazing things to say. The venue is located in downtown Poughkeepsie NY and it's a wonderful hidden treasure for any couple!

They have a spacious venue space that you can leave exactly the way it is, or is a great canvas to build on. We did a tour with Heather and she was kind, knowledgeable and flexible. We loved the modern foodhall vibe with classy touches everywhere. Their package and pricing are worth it, and the willingness of Heather to go above and beyond and modify the general package to our needs and wants wans amazing! Had the circumstance been different, this would have been the venue to go with!

The best experience!

My husband and I were married here April 2024 and could not have enjoyed our experience more. The events director, Heather was phenomenal to work with and made the experience great. She worked tirelessly with us to make our vision come to life, met countless times with me on site to explain and execute our vision. We are so appreciative of her expertise, time, consideration, and skill. The venue space is beautiful and unique and the food, cocktail hour, were phenomenal. Our guests could not have complimented the wedding more! We thank you Heather and the staff at KeepSake at The Academy for the wedding of our dreams!
