The Wedding of Your Dreams
At the Ashokan Center we have the property, facilities, and staff to create the wedding of your dreams. From a beautiful tent wedding to a Catskill Mountain destination wedding, we can help make your dream a reality. Situated on 385 acres near the Ashokan Reservoir and bisected by the meandering Esopus Creek, the Ashokan Center is a perfect location for couples searching for a peaceful, beautiful, natural setting for their special day. With pastures, forests, meadows, and fields, we have numerous potential outdoor locations for your wedding. Click for Wedding Brochure.
Our indoor facilities are equally impressive. Whether you’re planning a destination wedding with inviting lodging options or are looking for the perfect place to hold your ceremony and reception, you will fall in love with our new facilities. As of 2013, we have brand new sustainably designed buildings which can comfortably accommodate small and large groups throughout the year. The buildings are simultaneously modern and rustic, spacious and cozy. The beautiful, brand new Esopus Lodge can accommodate up to 150 guests and immediately feels inviting and comfortable, ready to house one of the most special days of your life.
Executive Chef William Warnes brings over 30 years of experience as a gourmet caterer to the Ashokan Center. Bill is able to create everything from gourmet multi-course meals to delicious outdoor BBQs. Chef Bill and his team will work with you to create the perfect menu, drink options, and serving style to exceed your vision for your special day. Bill is a strong proponent of “slow food” and is dedicated to serving both delicious and local/sustainable cuisine. Ashokan meals are sourced from local and organic farmers whenever possible.
