Savona’s Next Door is a small wed­ding recep­tion venue for up to 50 guests in Kingston, New York. But what it lacks in size is made up for in charm, qual­i­ty, and loca­tion.

An exten­sion of the pop­u­lar restau­rant Savona’s Trat­to­ria, Savona’s Next Door is a pri­vate din­ing room inside a row of red brick build­ings in the Ron­d­out-West Strand His­toric Dis­trict.  It is just foot­steps away from the Kingston water­front where a small park and gaze­bo can serve as the back­drop for wed­ding for­mals, like this one we shot below:

Inside Savona’s Next Door, the din­ing room is straight and nar­row, with high ceil­ings that give you a sense of open space.  A mas­sive wood­en bar dom­i­nates one side of the room, but there’s enough space for that first dance.

At the front of Savona’s Next Door are large, long win­dows that bring in plen­ty of nat­ur­al light.  Cake cut­tings are staged here and fil­tered light from out­side lends the scene a desir­able, dif­fused look.

Anoth­er thing that impressed us at Savona’s was the friend­li­ness and help­ful­ness of the staff.  And did we men­tion the great food?
