Unique. Personal. Magical
Caramoor features historic structures and 90 acres of woodland trails, rolling hills, and exquisite flowering gardens. We have several distinctive spaces ideal for celebrations from 50 to 800 guests.
The Sunken Garden
Native flowers and idyllic greenery
give the Sunken Garden a timeless beauty. This three-tiered formal garden surrounded by woodlands is our most popular venue for a wedding ceremony. Seal your special moment atop the Medieval Mount while guests sit comfortably in the garden’s lower tiers. Equipped for sound and music, the Sunken Garden is ready to accommodate your perfect event.
This grassy space is a lovely
location for ceremonies or receptions. A collection of 30-foot evergreens line the south side of the lawn, framing the paired
statues of Zephyr, the Greek god of the west wind, and Flora, the Roman goddess of flowers. The romantic, rose-covered gazebo serves as a stunning focal point for visitors on the gently sloped lawn, and guests may relax on benches by the Iris & Peony Garden. Sound, power, and additional tenting are available so that you can plan the event you want and enjoy the outdoors.
