What can you say about such a beautiful spot to host a wedding as the Mohonk Preserve. The views to the west are superlative with stunning sunset views, and the site itself is so welcoming with an Adirondack-style pavillion for dancing, and rustic bathrooms so no other provisions are necessary. We just love this beautiful piece of the Hudson Valley for a romantic wedding venue.
This past weekend we catered our first wedding of the season at the stunning Slingerland Pavillion on the Mohonk Preserve. What a delightful location with panoramic views facing west for the full sunset effect! For those of you who have never had the experience of cooking and serving a four star dinner to 125 guests under a tent - enjoy the shots of our "camping kitchen".
Another fun detail: the bride and groom chose wheat grass with heirloom seed packets labeled with each guest's name and table number as their "seating chart"! Very creative and fun.
