Wedding Venue - Request for Help???

Hi everyone. Looking to plan a wedding for May 2011 and am having some trouble finding an affordable yet unique venue. Ideally, I'd like a place that is pretty (water views or garden/nature/ nice outdoor grounds), for 150 guests, with good food/alcohol (beer and wine are fine) at under $100 per person. Any chance I can find this in the NYC metro area? Anything 1-2 hours outside of NYC is great (NJ, Westchester, Long Island, Upstate, Outerboroughs etc.). Daytime or Sunday weddings are great too if they bring down the costs.
Thank you so much for your input!!!!

  1. It might be at the high end of the cost spectrum, but Le Chateau in South Salem, New York is a dreamily-romantic place to have a wedding. It's a fabulous, well-kept mansion with manicured grounds. They do a lot of weddings. Give 'em a try.

    1410 Route 35, South Salem, NY 10590

    1. do you want it to be inside in a "hall" or ballroom or would you consider a laid back outdoor event? if you choose the latter do you want to use real china and glass as opposed to disposables? If I was getting married I would look at Catrock in Garrison.

        1. Bear Mt Inn- Pretty Spot, not sure about the food.

          1. Another thought, Aroma Osteria, in Wappingers, awesome food in an Italian Villa setting.
