Outdoor Wedding Ceremonies at Patriot Hills

While The Clubhouse at Patriot Hills is known for its fabulous cuisine, beautiful décor and outstanding service, couples are also drawn to the venue because of its spectacular location. We sit atop a mountain with expansive views of the picturesque Hudson Valley.  The 360 degree panorama of lush landscape that surrounds us provides the perfect backdrop for an outdoor wedding.

Wedding Ceremonies


Outdoor Wedding at Patriot Hills

Couples fall in love with the perfectly manicured stone patio, lighted waterfall feature, and stunning vista of majestic mountains, valleys and spacious skies. The spot is a tranquil background for beautiful, unforgettable wedding ceremonies.

Cocktail Hour

Outdoor Cocktail Hour

The large stone patio easily accommodates multiple stations, as well as an outdoor bar area.  Guests can take in the incredible scenery as they enjoy a signature cocktail and passed hors d’oeuvers. When everyone has finished mingling, they can stroll inside to the ballroom.


If you are having a more intimate wedding, you could also choose to have your reception outdoors as well. Continue the flow from the wedding ceremony to a progressive cocktail style reception right on the patio. The carefully chosen lighting provides ambiance as the sun goes down and you are blanketed by the Milky Way.

An Outdoor to Indoor Backup Plan

Outdoor Wedding Backup Plan - BallroomWhile an outdoor wedding may be your first choice, you can rest assured you have a backup plan just in case Mother Nature didn’t get the invite. At The Clubhouse at Patriot Hills we cater to only one affair at a time. So there are no worries if you need to move your outdoor wedding indoors to our beautiful ballroom. You and your guests can still enjoy the stunning Hudson Valley views from our panoramic windows.
