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.


Coveleigh Club

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 220. 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.

Key Features:
Dedicated in-house catering and event staff, including house chef.
