We had always been obsessed with the always-gorgeous photos of Troutbeck in Amenia, New York! Of course, this turned into dreams of producing an event at this stunner of a property.
Thankfully, this past summer, we had the opportunity to plan and design a full weekend with our couple, and we quickly fell in love with all of it! The entire property, for one (the possibilities to create here are endless), the food (that may need a separate post because we cannot gush enough here), and their team. Their team is undeniably good at what they do — they are fun, creative, intuitive, and helpful in collaborating on all the things needed to bring multiple days to life to life.
Troutbeck is a gem tucked away in the lush woods of Amenia, New York. You will travel nearly an hour of backroads to reach this venue, but every element of the property fits your dreams for the perfect space to rest, dine, and, most importantly, gather with your favorite person or people!
One of the best things about Troutbeck is the multitude of locations to host your event. Even if you host more than one celebration on the property! There are two barns, rolling lawns, the Walled Garden (this is my favorite!), and the indoor ballroom, amongst many other more intimate spaces for your weekend.
For Morgan and Jesse’s wedding, we opted to host their ceremony and cocktail hour outdoors in the Walled Garden, which is quintessential Troutbeck. Its well-manicured landscape and the perfect setup for 100+ guests welcome everyone to the wedding day beautifully. Later, guests dined and danced in the ballroom so they could enjoy the merriment until the wee hours of the morning!
Their intimate Welcome Party was set on the Gazebo Lawn facing the prominent main inn. We’ve been fortunate to plan and design so many kick-off events with our couples. Be sure to check out more here!
Now the food… As I said, I will need another post dedicated to this because every element was out-of-this-world! From the open-fire roast to kick off the weekend, the poolside BBQ and ice cream social during the wedding day, to the wedding dinner. Morgan and Jesse opted for a vegan lasagna (speaking as a non-vegan, I was dreaming about this lasagna for weeks after our tasting), and grilled trout. Again, the latter was a popular feature in my dreams post-tasting. From familiar to more unique, their culinary team treated everyone that weekend. Months later, it’s an element we are all still raving over!
We cannot let this post go without giving our thanks to the team at Troutbeck! Vendor coordinators and managers are much different than wedding and event planners; however, all roles are equally vital. The balance we provide to the other allows every aspect of our events – and each person contributing to it – maintains the high level of service we are known for. Working with a team such as those behind Troutbeck made this process successful and one we look forward to revisiting with future creative opportunities!
Check out the incredible memories below for a sneak peek into their weekend. You’ll quickly agree with our battle of deciphering which was the scene-stealer: the property or the fashion!
