About Us

Le Chateau is a Gilded Age mansion and wedding event venue located in South Salem, New York. With breathtaking views of the Hudson Valley, terraced patios that give you access to amazing sunsets, and acres of lush gardens, this mansion serves as an unforgettable backdrop for your wedding event. With such gorgeous scenery surrounding you, you will be able to take unforgettable wedding photography that you can cherish for a lifetime. Originally commissioned by J.P. Morgan in 1907 as a gift for his pastor and friend, the Reverend William S. Rainsford, this venue has craftsmanship that would be very difficult to replicate today. There is a lot of history surrounding this space, but it has been updated with gorgeous amenities for a more modern chic; the lobby and cocktail spaces preserve this history, yet they’ve been updated for wedding guests.

  • My husband and I got married a Le Chateau on January 19, 2020 and It was absolutely perfect. From the moment we stepped into the venue, we fell in love. Sarah and Tori made planning fun and easy, and by the time the day came, It was more than I could have asked for. Many of my guests commented that It was the most beautiful wedding they had ever been to and that the food was the best they have ever had at a wedding. It really is restaurant quality food with the most romantic venue. It was the best way to start our lives together, and choosing Le Chateau was the best decision of our wedding!
