Suggestions for beautiful wedding site with great catering, anywhere "near" Manhattan?

MadGirl | Mar 14, 2003 12:26 PM

I am hoping (begging? pleading?) for recommendations for an unusual, pretty place to have a wedding within driving distance of Manhattan. Probably 90 adults and 20 children (many under age 12). I'd love something in a more natural or fun setting... not the usual catering halls, country clubs, etc. with wall-to-wall carpeting, loud DJs and dry chicken, and not looking for super-formal (since there will be so many kids)... in fact, even a buffet would be fine! Most interested in creativity, beautiful setting, someplace that feels "in touch" with nature. We spend part of the year in L.A., and my perfect wedding would probably be on a cliff in Malibu overlooking the ocean... but since our family/friends are mostly in New York, I'd love to recapture that same "California casual" feeling somewhere in Westchester, inner Long Island, New York/New Jersey border (near Manhattan), anything along the Hudson River. Heck, I was even considering botanical gardens and zoos! Has anyone had a great experience with a caterer or location, or both? Thanking you in advance...
