About

On WeddingWire since 2010

The Locust Grove Estate is a not-for-profit museum and nature preserve located in Poughkeepsie, New York - the heart of the Hudson Valley. Set on 200 acres of landscaped grounds overlooking the Hudson River, the estate offers endless wedding photography opportunities in the historic gardens. With just one event booked each evening, guests also have exclusive access to art galleries in the Arts-and-Crafts-style museum pavilion, beautiful flower gardens, and both indoor and outdoor event spaces.

Facilities and Capacity

The Locust Grove Estate offers a unique event space in any season. The West Gallery can comfortably accommodate between 50 and 150 guests indoors for dinner and dancing, while the nearby Garden Lawn can also be rented for a wedding ceremony that overlooks the flower gardens. In case of rain, an indoor backup space is available for ceremonies (no need to rent a tent). The West Gallery features a vaulted ceiling studded with hanging lanterns, three walls of windows and french doors that open onto bluestone terraces, and gardens views. The rental fee includes tables, chairs, a full catering kitchen, air conditioning, ample restroom facilities, and convenient parking for guests. Choose your own caterer to provide the menu and bar service that you prefer. Lots of guests traveling? Two hotels are within walking distance, and three more within a five-minute drive.

Fantastic venue for a fall wedding

We loved working with Ken and the team at Locust Grove for our wedding. They were so helpful with planning and coordinating the day that we didn鈥檛 have to worry about a thing. Ken was so friendly and knowledgeable and made everyone feel welcome. The Greystone house is stunning to get ready in!

So wonderful to get married here!

Ken was amazingly kind during the whole process!! It was a beautiful place to get married (we got to experience it in both rain and shine and it was magical in both settings). We cannot wait to go back and visit on our anniversary! All of our guest remarked about how beautiful the space was! We also rented out Greystone House which was magnificent! Highly recommend doing that too for brides!

Wonderful experience

Locust Grove Estate is absolutely beautiful. The gallery, grounds, garden, and property are gorgeous. We had our wedding there recently and it was the perfect venue! The foliage looked wonderful, the hall was spacious. Choosing this venue was very budget-friendly and Ken is so helpful and communicative. We highly recommend. Thank you, Locust Grove!
