Katie and Louis met in 2010 while producing a music festival in New York’s Capital Region. With a background in event operations they were excited to plan their own wedding in 2016, and were surprised by the venue offerings when they started researching. They found that many of the venues limited creativity and flexibility, with standard packages, venue specific vendors, and very clear time constraints. They ended up discovering non traditional spaces to hold their rehearsal dinner, ceremony, and reception which spoke to both of them as individuals!
Katie had dreamed of owning an event venue since college, and in 2018 they started searching for the perfect property which could offer couples a space to feel at home. They stumbled upon The Maples in beautiful Schoharie, NY and knew immediately that the property offered the potential to give couples exactly what they had dreamed of! Katie and Louis have produced a range of events including weddings, banquets, conferences, family friendly festivals, concerts, block parties, craft markets, fitness programs, and seminars, and are excited to provide a space which offers a unique experience for their guests.
