The Sablewood

June 5, 2019 Susan Serena

When newly engaged couples begin visualizing where to have their wedding, a barn is probably the last thing that comes to mind. When we think barn, we think an old man in a straw hat, animals, and unappealing smells. We surely don’t thing wedding bells.

Weddings in New York can be challenging to plan for event planners because brides and grooms are trying to compete with the extravagant weddings they’ve attended. From choosing a theme or wedding colors, finding a unique venue, selecting exclusive menu items, to finding the best entertainment, everyone is trying to top the last wedding reception they attended.

In this post, we’re going to focus on the type of weddings in New York that allow you to think outside the box. See, the issue with people who are looking to outdo the last fabulous wedding they attended is that they only look at recent wedding trends to pick and choose what they want on their big day. It’s up to the Event Planners in New York to help them visualize an entirely different setting that will be talked about for years to come.

Now back to the barn.

If you live anywhere in New York and you’re in midst of planning an upcoming wedding, we’d like to introduce you to a creative concept for weddings in New York. An idea that almost comes across as a destination wedding without having to make guests book a flight ticket.

Invite your guests on a short trip to Schoharie, New York where they will be floored at the picturesque views that this gorgeous barn has to offer. Everyone has heard of the Catskill Mountains but rarely consider it when thinking about where to have their wedding.

The Sablewood offers a majestic ambiance in their circa 1870 barn where you will have access to eighty acres of serene mountain views, an elegant country setting, and lush fields all under the inviting star-filled sky that produces the most romantic scenery for a wedding.
