Barn Weddings

Barns have such an amazing ambience, it's no wonder that wedding ceremonies and receptions are now being held in them more than ever. The New York State Barn Coalition (NYSBC) is an organization, run entirely by volunteers, that works to preserve New York's argicultural architecture. The Hudson Valley is home to many historic farms and orchards, why not celebrate the Valley's heritage and have your event in a barn?
