Elopement

Intimate, Easy, Affordable, Unique:
an Elopement at our Estate

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.

 

Sunday or Weekday Elopement

Intimate four-hour
afternoon celebration

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.
