My fiance and I are looking for a location in the Albany/Cooperstown/Catskill/Hudson Valley/Saratoga area to host our ceremony and reception. Ideally, we are looking for an outdoor site (tented), or a renovated barn/rustic setting and are having a hard time searching for unique locations. The big name places are always advertised, but most prove to be out of our price range, and we are hoping for a more intimate setting. We will be having about 150 people (rough estimate). We have already looked at the Appel Inn in Altamont and loved the site but would like to see a few more before making a decision.
I appreciate any tips and advice anyone can give us....I am starting to feel very stressed because it seems places are already booking up for dates next spring and we dont want to miss out!
