Lake Taghkanic State Park, nestled next to Lake Taghkanic in the rolling hills and lush forests of Columbia County, offers a wonderful variety of spaces and settings for your perfect wedding ceremony and reception. Imagine inviting your friends and family to a gorgeous and peaceful wedding ceremony on the West Beach of the park. With the picturesque lake in the background and the sun shining its golden rays on you, you can say your “I Dos” among all of your loved ones surrounded by the beauty of the natural landscape.

You and your guests can enjoy everything the surrounding nature has to offer while eating delicious food, drinking champagne, and dancing in the sunshine. Imagine a first dance with your new spouse as the sun sets over the still blue water of the lake creating a pink and gold streaked sky. Your wedding at Lake Taghkanic State Park will truly be perfect.
