About the Capital District

Cities, mountains, small towns, valleys, rivers, farmland, history, and culture – not many areas can say they have it all, but Upstate New York has it all and more. Whether you dream about a charming country wedding or a lively metropolitan wedding, Upstate New York is the place to make that dream come true.

Those who call Upstate New York home know the secret- the variety offered by this area is unmatched. Here you’ll find the lakes and peaks of the Adirondack Mountains, the charm and history of downtown Troy, the vibrant art and culture of Saratoga Springs, the sweeping architecture along the storied streets of Albany, the farms and hills of the Hudson Valley, and the quaint small towns nestled in between.

Big enough for those that love the city and small enough to enjoy an amazing quality of life, the NYWB members love to call this place their home. Whether you choose the mountains, one of our small cities, or a venue out in the country, we know you’ll love to call this place your dream wedding location.
