AMAZING! Need an excuse to celebrate here again!
I love everything about the Senate Garage. The space is so beautiful. I didn’t know what to expect after selecting a wedding location. The Senate Garage team (April especially) made me feel like I was working with all family all making suggestions to make my wedding the most beautiful day. They were organized and patient when we weren’t. Having the Senate Garage paired with caterers Bridge Creek made things so much easier but that isn’t just it. Bridge Creek farm to table food was incredible. They accommodated every food restriction which we had plenty and wacky requests like making sure The Bride had extra cupcakes. Everything tasted exciting and delicious! They too felt like family! Bonus-The Senate Garage is close by for the bus from NYC and MetroNorth so our guests didn’t have to drive if they didn’t want to. I would gladly give more information on Senate Garage as it was my dream wedding and I wish I could do it all over again..and again!Sent on 12/09/2019

I had one of the best days of my life here-- April and the team at the Senate Garage brought the highest levels of event planning experience and professionalism to our wedding. I could not be happier with the final product. Our guests loved the location and many of them commented on how helpful and gracious the staff were. I would recommend this venue to anyone.Sent on 05/18/2020
One other note on how easy they are to work with: I added an additional vendor 3 weeks before the wedding (indoor games like giant jenga and cornhole). The Senate Garage was very flexible about the layout of the space and accepted the additional permit without any issues.

Perfect Wedding. Perfect Wedding Venue.
Get married at Senate Garage. It is one of the most beautiful spaces in the Hudson Valley, inside and out, and the planning experience could not have been more seamless. I had dreamed about getting married outside in front of an old stone building with beautiful trees and gardens surrounding, and then having the reception inside a modern but warm space. Senate Garage could not have fit that vision any more perfectly. My husband and I planned our wedding from California, but April and Jessica from Bridgecreek were so helpful and responsive that we never had to stress about doing everything from so far away. The most amazing thing about Senate Garage is that even though they do lots of weddings every year, every wedding here looks different because of how beautiful and adaptable the space is. Everything about the space is so special - from the red velvet-curtained lounge, to the beautiful wooden bar, to the warm exposed brick and the modern but soft chandeliers. We knew Senate Garage was perfect for us because it didn’t need any extra decoration - the space speaks for itself - but we could still make it unique (we hung flower installations on two of the white gallery walls, and wrapped vines around some of the columns). We had 150 guests, and the space never felt either overcrowded or empty. It was just perfect. Not to mention - how many people can take their wedding pictures in a record store, or electrocuting each other with 1920s electrical equipment?
April is a joy to work with, and she made us feel like she was genuinely excited to be working with us (which was the opposite of how we felt when we met with other venue coordinators in the HV). April answered all my (many) emails within at most a few hours, she helped us handle some last minute logistical hiccups (my fault) with grace, and she even connected my parents with her daughter for babysitting the night before the wedding. Jessica from Bridgecreek will hold your hand throughout the planning process - down to how many glasses and forks to order - so even if you don’t hire a planner (like us), you will never feel lost.
We just got our pictures back and we can’t stop looking at them, happily reliving the day and still in awe at how beautiful our wedding at Senate Garage looked. If they have availability on your preferred date (or even your seventh or eighth choice date), book your wedding at Senate Garage. You will not regret it for a second.Sent on 11/24/2019
