I recently drove a bit north to visit the very lovely Southwood Estate — a total gem of a wedding venue with spectacular views right on the Hudson, buildings full of character and sprawling, beautiful lawns. Oh! And a dog. Obviously – let’s start with the most important part of this venue — DOG. Meet George – this guy has his own instagram and has been known as a delightful wedding guest. In other words, much more popular than I’ve ever been.
But besides my instant obsession with this happy, adorable dog — this venue is just gorgeous. It’s all special — from that big, house to the magical sculptures around the property, created by the original owner — she was inspired by the mountains, the nature all around. Everything feels intentional – even their current project of creating those beautiful serving boards from found wood.
