GREAT ES­CAPES

Martha Stewart Weddings - - IN THIS ISSUE -

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.

THE DE­TAILS:

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.
