Four venues boasting unique sculptures and gorgeous views, a guide to Caribbean island–hopping, African safaris 2.0, and a real couple’s guide to honeymooning in Hawaii.
New York City has long been a mecca for art lovers hoping to tie the knot in a gallery or museum. Now, just an hour north of the city there’s a new venue in the mix that combines art with a stunning natural setting. This expansive outdoor museum, with one of the largest contemporary collections in the country, is hosting weddings for the first time in its 56-year history. Up to 250 guests can witness your open-air vows atop Museum Hill, which offers sweeping views of the bucolic property; smaller groups (up to 60) can use the flagstone patio. Fresh Company provides the catering; expect bright, seasonal dishes like braised chicken with fennel, green olives, and lemon.
Weddings between April and November, excluding October; membership required (fees typically from $2,500); venue rental from $500 to $10,000, stormking.org.
Storm King has been home to many largescale works by Mark di Suvero, like Beethoven’s Quartet (above), over the years.
