North Star Venue - Sweet Bough Wedding Collective
North Star Venue

North Star offers an elegant country setting for small and medium (up to 30 indoors, 50 in the gardens) events. Enjoy your event on our 3.5 acres of formal gardens, woodland paths around the pond, stone patios and music/dancing on the deck. Indoors you may use the art gallery, music room with baby grand piano, salon, grand foyer, and large kitchen with island for food and beverage service. Hardwood floors inside and the deck with its wisteria-covered pergola invite dancing. several locations both indoors and in the gardens are charming for a small wedding service.

Complete food and beverage services are available. Our excellent private chef can customize a menu to your taste for receptions as well as for sit-down dinners in the gallery or gardens. We emphasize serving locally-sourced foods.

We may suggest a variety of musical groups ranging from classical, Celtic, jazz, swing, and a DJ who has a vast repertoire of all kinds of dance music.

You may decorate, or one bride declined to decorate and instead relied on the museum-quality paintings by our artist-in-residence, Brian Keeler.

We are happy to work with you or your wedding planner and any other vendors you may use.

We have one large airbnb en suite room with a large mirror that is helpful to provide a private space for wedding parties.

We are just minutes from the Ithaca Airport, Cornell University, Botanic Gardens, and Downtown Ithaca.
