Woodsey & Raw Upstate New York Wedding Venues

Just miles outside the Big Apple, you can find yourself in an enchanting landscape of small towns as quaint as coastal England. Yet beyond even those quiet  sprinklings are vast fields, epic forests, and stunning mountain ranges. Upstate New York is lively, colorful, and generous with its natural beauty. So if you’re keen on getting married in one of the most beautiful places on Earth, we know a few slices of paradise.
