Locusts On Hudson

Confession, before I had the sparkler that has taken residence on my left hand I was already had scoped out a wedding location. While I was completely surprised when John actually proposed, marriage was something we had talked a lot about so I knew we were heading down that path...so I thought what harm would a little scouting of locations before the engagement??? {FYI - John was totally aware I was doing this}.  Locusts on Hudson is the private residence of the uber famous Andre Balazs {also owner of our favorite summer destination}. When I first laid eyes on this estate it was love at first sight. Not only didn't have immaculate grounds, lux accommodations for sleeping, it also was a full working farm with TONS of incredible history, something John & I always appreciate. This location is the perfect combination of country and luxury all beautifully packaged into a remarkable venue you can rent for your special day.  I immediately started dreaming up a grandeur celebration of our marriage and thought this might be the worlds most perfect backdrop for such a special. While the logistics with location and where our families and guests are from didn't work for us personally it hasn't stopped me from revisiting the site to see what fantastic events have taken place at this historic home. Two weddings that had me gushing can be seen here & here.  Below I gave some ideas on how I would utilize the land for a special soiree.
