The Knot has just published a web-story about one of our June weddings.  These photos are by Isabel Selby.  More here:


It is with profound sadness that Onteora reports the passing of Luca, the much-loved vice-president of our Canine Division.

Luca was known to all as our official wedding tour guide, as he valiantly led prospective couples around the property, in and out, up and down in all seasons.  Charging before the touring couples, he would bravely defend them from ambush by bears, rabbits, and chipmunks.  We estimate he lead over 800 tours during his 12 years of loyal duty. Even until his last week, he rose to the call of a tour.  Our tours have never quite been the same since.

Summer has some spectacular sunsets

"The winter is past; the rains are over and gone. Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in the land."

November Sunset

The leaves are falling, and the days get shorter and shorter.  Soon the gray skies of winter will settle in.  But for now...

A wonderful wedding video courtesy of Clark/Walker Studio
It was only a matter of time before one of those drones would appear to give us our first real bird's eye view of Onteora. But it's also a wonderfully-shot video that we think really captures the spirit of the weddings that happen here.
