a lovely day

Saturday, July 23
4pm – 11pm

This is the most special day! In the middle of nature, we’ll dress up nice,1 dine on farmer fare and dance into the night.2

(1) The ceremony and celebration spots are in the great(est) outdoors, so spare the stilettos unless you’re feeling fancy. You might also consider bringing a layer for when the sun sets.

(2) At Clermont, parking abounds... you can safely leave your car and pick it up in the morning. We’ll have shuttles to the afterparty for anyone who wants to party like they don’t have to drive.

Clermont Historic Park
1 Clermont Avenue
Germantown, NY 12526

midnight rumble

Saturday, July 23
11pm – ??

This late-night party is still in the works, but at some point we’ll happily and tipsily stand on chairs in our finery and spread the word on where to go. All we know is this: there’s a 99% chance of nachos.

Stay tuned for location.

getting there


Take the Air

The nearest airports are Albany (ALB) and Newburgh (SWF) and from either, the site is a one-hour drive.


Take the Roads

The nearest city is, of course, NYC. It’s a two and a half hour ride that goes from concrete to green.


Take the Rails

You can take Amtrak to Rhinecliff, NY and snag a taxi, but you’ll probably need a car to get around.
