There are literally thousands of wedding venues in the United States to host an Indian wedding. But, there are few that will let the imagination and design run wild. If you’re a bride looking for a location where you can literally design from the ground up, we have found the place for you. So, all you wonderful East Coast Brides check out this location of locations. It has it all, waterfront views, space galore and privacy. Did I mention, that’s it’s brand new and turn key ready. Today, we whisk you away to Catskill, New York to tour LUMBERYARD Center for Film and Performing Arts.
Situated in the beautiful Hudson Valley, Lumberyard Center for Film & Performing Arts is a cultural hub dedicated to innovative artistic and community programming. AirBnB named the Hudson Valley as a top trending destination of 2019 and our venue offers brand new state-of-the-art facilities that can accommodate up to 600 people.
Innovation and creativity are the very cornerstones of Lumberyard. Planning a wedding is a similarly creative endeavor in which a couple’s vision for their lives together is defined and articulated. Let the spirit of creativity that permeates Lumberyard imbue your special day.
During week-long residencies at Lumberyard’s Catskill, NY campus, world-renowned and emerging artists and their teams are housed, fed, and given the space, feedback, and freedom to tinker with the final technical flourishes of their work. Local audiences gather for a “first-look,” a unique confluence of experience for both artists and their patrons.
What’s more, Lumberyard reinvests 100% of income from wedding rentals back into its artistic and community programming, which includes free after-school arts classes as well as instruction for incarcerated teenagers. We are proud to be part of the Weddings with a Purpose movement.

Our theatrical production team can be hired to work with your team on technical production matters (lighting, sound, etc.) and our Facilities Manager will support you and your team as well. Most couples have a wedding planner and we do require that couples work with a “day-of” planner, at minimum, to ensure that your special day runs smoothly.

The prime outdoor space is our Courtyard, the heart of the original lumberyard. In homage to its origins, the interior Courtyard underwent a full restoration, including the preservation of its signature lumber trestle. Authentic and flexible, our Courtyard can accommodate seated guests for dinner under the stars, host vow ceremonies adjacent to the Ballroom, and be tented for lucky rainy day ceremonies!
DO YOU OFFER INDOOR CEREMONY SITE:
There are two indoor options to choose from at Lumberyard. Our central, most expansive and transformational space is the Ballroom/Theater. Extraordinary in both aesthetics and capabilities, the Ballroom/Theater will bring your vision to fruition with soaring ceilings, state-of-the-art equipment and sprawling capacity. Designed without a permanent configuration or fixed seating, the flexible-use, professional-grade theater has hosted celebrated artists and technically complex productions. The raw space is 100% customizable and can accommodate all cultural traditions. An adjacent lobby and Courtyard allow for seamless transition and a vibrant experience.
A second indoor offering at Lumberyard is our Creekside Studio. Located across the street from the main building, the Creekside Studio is a 5,000-square-foot space with authentic, rustic charm and original features, including a vaulted ceiling and hardwood beams. This space can accommodate up to 150 guests standing, seated, or dancing the night away! Located right on the water, Creekside Studio offers incredible views and romantic photography opportunities of Catskill Creek, weeping willows, and the wind in your hair. Creekside Studio is ideal for engagement parties, rehearsal dinners, intimate receptions, and other cozy gatherings.
