As an intimate alternative to a full day wedding, the Roxbury Barn & Estate offers couples the option of an elegant, but easy-to-manage elopement, which is available on Sunday, Monday, or Thursday, from mid May till mid October.
Minimum party size: 10, maximum party size: 20 persons
The couple arrives at The Captain’s House, the property’s residence, to get ready in two designated rooms, while other guests gather at our Hilltop Pavilion for a welcome refreshment.
There’s enough time for some formal photos, shot anywhere on the property (though a photographer is not included in this offer).
Ceremony follows at the Pine Grove, or in the roofed hill top pavilion. There are, of course, no rules: have the wonderful, meaning filled ceremony that fits your styles and personalities.
After the ceremony, drinks and hors d’oeuvres are served at the barn, by a bartender and server, for 1 ½ hours. Toasts, cocktails, a First Dance, it’s all possible. We’ll arrange music to your liking.
The Roxbury Barn supplies a venue coordinator for the event; an ordained officiant (though you are free to bring your own wedding person); a 4-seater cart with driver; a simple but pretty wedding bouquet; and music, flowers and decor in the barn.
Your four-hour elopement can be scheduled anytime between 2pm and 7pm
Setup, coordination, chairs, tables, decor and lighting, flowers and wedding bouquet, speaker system and music, staff, beautiful restrooms and prep rooms, 4-seater cart with driver, drinks and hors d’oeuvres, glasses, linens, and plates, are all included.
We’ll gladly help you in finding a local wedding photographer for the afternoon, as well as transportation to one of the Central Catskills fine restaurants for a subsequent dinner.
Sorry, typical evening options, such as a bonfire or luminaries, are not available for an elopement.
Dreaming of an intimate, serene wedding, without the pressure of planning, and at a modest budget? We’ve put together a one of a kind, all-inclusive experience for the very purpose of making your day stress free and affordable, yet incredibly beautiful in every way.
Get ready in two separate rooms at the Captain’s House, while others in your party enjoy a welcome drink at our hill top pavilion with mesmerizing views. We’ll drive you up the mountain for a ceremony in our enchanted pine grove (aka our natural cathedral). Afterwards, stroll down our rolling meadows, and celebrate with a toast and your first dance under the twinkling lights of our gorgeous carriage barn. There will be drinks and bites, and our staff will make everything look and sound beautiful.
Before your arrival, we’ll style the barn and ceremony site to your liking, adding the desirable number of chairs and tables, arrange for the music you prefer, add flowers, and a wedding bouquet that matches your style. We’ll also offer you our Lodging List, with over a hundred lodging options in the Central Catskills, and advise on some great subsequent dinner options. No worries about stress, no long to-do lists involved.

In order to reserve the grounds and barn for your elopement, we require that couples sign a rental agreement and pay a non-refundable deposit of $3000. We accept checks only. The remaining rental fee (the rental fee minus the $3000 deposit) for your elopement will be due one month before the event.

Unlike full day weekend weddings, elopements can usually be booked until closer to the wedding date. For availability, please contact us.
We promise to keep things simple for you, but of course, you will need a marriage license! In New York State, couples must apply in person for a marriage license to any town or city clerk in the state. The marriage ceremony may not take place within 24 hours from the exact time that the license was issued.
A marriage license is valid for 60 calendar days, beginning the day after it is issued. No premarital examination or blood test is required to obtain a marriage license in New York State. Find all the details on getting your marriage license right here.
