15 amazing Hudson Valley industrial wedding venues for 2021
Exposed brick, raw space, rustic charm. Or just rust. There’s something about an industrial wedding venue that puts golf courses and catering halls to shame. However, If you are looking for an industrial wedding venue in the Hudson Valley, you’ve got a small challenge. Although the Hudson Valley abounds with unique and picturesque wedding venues, it leans toward barns, wineries and historic mansions. The reason - there’s never been a whole lot of industry up here to leave behind an industrial space.
However, that being said, industrial wedding venues do exist in the Hudson Valley, and they are among the most popular venues up here.
Ready to start gittin’ gritty wit it? I created the first directory of Hudson Valley industrial wedding venues in early 2019 and I regularly update it, so there are still venues here that you won't find on anywhere else. These focus mostly on Ulster County, New York, with a bit of Orange, Dutchess and Westchester counties mixed in. They range in size from ginormous to intimate, high-end to budget.
If you're looking for a venue on the rustic or unique side, you may also want to to check out some 50 more wedding venue options on our Wedding Venues page.

Basilica Hudson is the grand granddaddy of industrial venues. You know those vast raw spaces strung with white lights on Pinterest that make your heart go pitter patter?
