These Sound Shore wedding venues prove fall foliage isn’t the only picturesque wedding backdrop Westchester County has to offer.
Here in the Hudson Valley, we tend to talk up our namesake river on a regular basis. Still, when it comes to gorgeous views and en plein air wedding venues, we’re just as happy to pull up our Instagram and flip through dozens of saved shots from Westchester’s other scenic water vista, the Sound Shore. Below, here are a few of our favorites.
*Please check with local venues for the latest COVID-19 protocols, policies, and details.*
459 Stuyvesant Ave, Rye
Aside from the gorgeous sound views, flexibility is the name of the game at this Georgian clubhouse. The West Porch is perfect for intimate gatherings, comfortably seating between 25 and 75 guests, while the ballroom can entertain up to 200. Both are adjoined by a bucolic lawn that is absolutely ideal for outdoor ceremonies, first looks, party portraits, or even engagement shoots. Other choice locations include the welcome arch and nearby gatehouse.
Dedicated in-house catering and event staff, including house chef
50 Glen Island Park, New Rochelle
This event venue is a place to build long-lasting memories, given its rich history. The club is located on Glen Island, which was originally built in 1879 as a summer resort for a businesses executive and became a successful casino during the 1930s Big Band Era. Picturesque locations include historical arches and towers made of stone. Views continue inside the club’s circular chapel and ballrooms, surrounded by windows with panoramas of the sea.
Outdoor/indoor ceremony and reception options, in-house catering available, decks with heat lamps, buffet and sit-down dinner options
1025 Cove Rd, Mamaroneck
This wedding venue overlooks a cove on the sound and, while the beach is rocky, the club’s lush golf course provides a median for pictures featuring views of both sprawling settings. The patio can serve as the location for ceremonies, and the liveliness of these outdoor views can continue inside when guests are greeted with floral arrangements on every table in the 35,000-square-foot clubhouse.
Bridal suite and groomsman room for getting ready, sit-down and buffet options available
We â¤ï¸ Anna & Brian! We photographed their proposal as well, so it’s always special to see the wedding day come to life!

555 S Barry Ave, Mamaroneck
Purchased by Architectura in 2018 — and completely revamped — this Mamaroneck club works primarily with members but is open to the public as well for a small fee. The main dining room can accommodate up to 350 guests and, with outdoor space overlooking the sound available by the season, everything from an intimate event to the wedding of the year is in the cards.
Outdoor/indoor ceremonies, outdoor dining, in-house catering and chef
1 S Manursing Island, Rye
This wedding venue, which doesn’t do ceremonies between Memorial Day and Labor Day, has deep roots as a place for family and friends to come together. While only six weddings for members/those sponsored by members are held here a year, the club is a warm place for those looking to have an intimate wedding. Two rooms with waterfront views allot for a transition from the cocktail hour into the reception, and the beach is available for photos.
In-house catering, beach-front photo ops, major exclusivity

475 Stuyvesant Ave, Rye
Looking to go all in with that seaside feel for your wedding? Charter this venue and start cruising along the sound as waitstaff serve drinks, which can include a signature drink, served butler-style upon entering the cocktail hour. The club, available to those sponsored by members, boasts a modern, nautical atmosphere, complete with a horseshoe-style beach and dock. In accordance, weddings are held at the club’s deck or clubhouse, based on whether you are having a more intimate or larger affair.
Open bar, children’s meals upon request, available buffet/carving chefs

280 Davenport Ave, New Rochelle
Grandeur is a point of pride for this seaside mansion, which is open to non-members for weddings. A reflecting pool, statuesque fountains, and an imperial staircase all provide scene-setting locations for pictures, in addition to the beach, since this venue also serves as a beach club. To add some personalization to the scene, a Garde Manger is on-hand for ice or fruit carving, as well as a pastry chef who can design a cake in the venue’s bakery, accompanied by homemade gelato.
Outdoor/indoor ceremonies, bridal attendant, maître d’, outdoor terrace.

Pictures at a 120-year-old estate overlooking the water won’t be the only standout feature of your wedding at this venue. The country club, open to non-members for weddings, creates a restaurant-style dining experience. Stations during cocktail hours are customizable, so guests can choose what they want chefs to add in at each. South Asian, Indian, and Pakistani weddings are a specialty here, and chefs are prepared to make special ethnic cuisines, including halal meats, while adhering to dietary requests.
A fusion-style menu is also available at this wedding venue (along with the option of having the event entirely catered), which means the club’s chefs will work alongside a caterer to ensure there are options for everyone.
Outdoor/indoor ceremonies, Kosher catering available as well as private rooms for a smorgasbord and the groom’s tisch, outdoor terrace, valet parking, coat check services, lobby hosts, maître d’ and captain, two private suites with a bridal attendant
