Historic Huguenot Street, New Paltz

 

There’s no more gor­geous back­drop for wed­ding pho­tos than a rus­tic, his­toric site. His­toric Huguenot Street in our home­town of New Paltz radi­ates his­to­ry and has long been a place to hold wed­dings.

It’s not uncom­mon to dri­ve down Huguenot Street on a week­end and see a white event tent pitched on the lawn out­side the Deyo House. In warmer months, wed­dings are held out­side the build­ing, which can serve din­ner to 70 peo­ple indoors.

The near­by LeFevre House was recent­ly made avail­able for cock­tail par­ties and drinks before the wed­ding recep­tion. Inside is a large par­lour with stone hearth which makes this set­ting even more charm­ing in win­ter.

Cur­rent­ly, cou­ples get­ting mar­ried on Huguenot Street are respon­si­ble for find­ing their own cater­er. But this may soon change thanks to a changes being made at the street’s Dubois Fort.

The Huguenot His­tor­i­cal Soci­ety is cur­rent­ly work­ing to install a per­ma­nent cater­ing facil­i­ty inside the fort which will serve wed­ding recep­tions and oth­er events. The facil­i­ty will be man­aged by an out­side cater­ing com­pa­ny that will part­ner with the His­tor­i­cal Soci­ety to give cou­ples the very best wed­ding recep­tion expe­ri­ence. Plans should be com­plete by sum­mer 2014, we are told.

His­toric Huguenot Street also has two church­es in which cou­ples can make their vows. There is the Crispell Memo­r­i­al French Church, a recon­struc­tion of a French Church orig­i­nal­ly built out of stone in 1717. The build­ing is known for its ele­gant wood­en pews which can hold 80 guests. There is also the Reformed Church of New Paltz whose car­il­lon can be heard play­ing tra­di­tion­al tunes every­day at noon.

What we like best about His­toric Huguenot Street are the small, roman­tic areas which are great for tak­ing pho­tos of the bride and groom. Plen­ty of veran­das and trees pro­vide the per­fect solu­tion to harsh over­head day­light. Old stone walls make excel­lent back drops.
