There are no words that can possibly describe the magic of our wedding at The Garrison. From the moment we signed the contract -- no, wait - from the moment we VISITED for the first time, Annie was incredible. She took care of everything from the very beginning, but made sure our input and creative ideas were fully implemented. Anything we wanted, she made happen. Her vendor list was amazing and from it we had the most beautiful flowers, comfortable transportation for our guests and music that kept everyone on the dance floor all night.
The views and sunset were incredible. People couldn't believe how magical it felt! All of our family and friends felt so taken care of, and our guests left saying that it was the most special wedding they've ever been at. They raved for weeks about the food, the views and the staff. So it wasn't just the bride and groom, or just our families - EVERYONE felt so taken care of, and this was all spearheaded by Annie. We love you Annie and if we could get married all over again, we'd do it at The Garrison!!

Couldn't have been better
We never considered any venues other than The Garrison. Annie was communicative, responsive, and lovely to work with from the very beginning. We had a somewhat non-traditional wedding (a lot of music from animated shows, pie instead of cake, not a lot of decor, an overtly political signature cocktail) and never felt anything less than fully respected by everyone at the venue. The setting was so gorgeous for our early February wedding and the valet parking made it very easy for our guests to get there even with snow on the ground. The food was as incredible as we expected and we got the chance to try everything. The overnight rooms are gorgeous and the bridal suite was very generously sized. We felt very taken care of from the day we booked through the end of the event. All of our guests had a fantastic time and so did we! So many people say they can't remember their wedding or felt like they didn't really get to be there and we didn't feel that way at all, which is at least in part due to the excellent service we received.

Stunning views and outstanding food
We were fortunate to have our wedding at The Garrison. From start to finish, the process was personalized and organized. The minute we arrived, we were blown away by the panoramic view of the Hudson Valley. Bridget Bell was our wedding coordinator. She spent quality time with us throughout the planning process to ensure that our vision would come to life. She was a pleasure to work with and coordinated with our vendors for a stress- free wedding day. Bridget answered all of our emails promptly, gave us great advice, and was very easy going. Her professionalism and ability to get things done were second to none. We had the best time of our lives and Bridget was a big part in making it a memorable day.
The venue is approx. 1.5hr drive from the city/ major airports, which our guests found easy to access. There were enough parking spots for our guests who drove. The major hotels (in Fishkill) are about 15min drive/ bus/ shuttle away. The venue held 125 guests, a 9-piece band with 2 sound technicians, and a photobooth with more than enough room to spare. The wedding package we chose was competitive to other venues we looked at.
We chose to hold our ceremony indoors and timed it so that the sun would set as we said our vows. It made for awesome pictures. The transition from ceremony to cocktail hour (held in the same room) was smooth. After the cocktail hour, we liked that the guests simply had to walk a few steps to the reception hall. Guests could not stop complementing on the cocktail hour food as well as reception dinner- many said that they had the “best wedding food ever”. We also had a fire pit on the patio for a s’mores bar, which was a big hit for both children and adults. We would highly recommend this venue and Bridget Bell.
