Welcome to “A Wedding in the Valley”

You’ve arrived at “A Wed­ding In the Val­ley”, your visu­al guide to plan­ning your des­ti­na­tion wed­ding in the Hud­son Valley.


What is “A Wed­ding in the Valley”?

When you don’t live in the Hud­son Val­ley, but want to plan your wed­ding here, we want to help you see the venues and ven­dors that inter­est you most.

This site is main­tained by Doug Mad­den & Regi­na Gloor of Due­tim­age Pho­tog­ra­phy based in New Paltz, NY. Hav­ing expe­ri­ence with plan­ning our own des­ti­na­tion wed­ding abroad, we know how impor­tant is to get an advance look at all the resources you’ll need to plan your wed­ding day.

What’s more, since we love the Hud­son Val­ley, we’re hap­py to show off all our beau­ti­ful venues and spot­light our tal­ented wed­ding pro­fes­sion­als. This site is free and none of the con­tent is ad based. It is here to help you see and to learn, and to help our region in the process.

Why We Blog

Great wed­dings just don’t happen.

They take the per­fect match of wed­ding cou­ple and venue, plus the ser­vices of many pro­fes­sion­als with diverse skill sets — all com­ing togeth­er for one unique event in which loca­tion and artis­tic visions blend to cre­ate some­thing total­ly special.

And that some­thing total­ly spe­cial is even more spe­cial when it takes place in the Hud­son Valley.

A Wed­ding in the Val­ley blog devel­oped as a pho­to-jour­nal to aid the wed­ding plan­ning of our clients (and poten­tial clients) gear­ing up for a des­ti­na­tion wed­ding in the Hud­son Valley.

As this site devel­ops, we hope it will become a num­ber one resource to all cou­ples get­ting mar­ried in this spe­cial part of the world which we proud­ly call home.

Look around, com­ment, and feel free to tell us about a wed­ding venue, ven­dor, or local­ly made prod­uct you think we should feature.
