In order to ensure the safety of our guests, vendors, and The DeBruce’s staff, we must insist that we all take certain steps to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission.
We understand that some of our guests may be apprehensive about attending a large gathering right now, and we understand.
We also know that the situation is evolving over time, so please check back often for the latest information.
Most of our scheduled events will be entirely outdoors (or tented with the sides open).
For these outdoor events, we ask that everyone tests negative prior to their arrival on property regardless of vaccination status. This means taking a rapid test (within 6 hours) or PCR test (within 48 hours) of arrival.
For our two indoor events (Saturday’s late night after party and Sunday’s borscht belt brunch) our venue, The DeBruce, requires all attendees to be fully vaccinated and tested.
These policies have been developed for the safety and comfort of each of our guests, including the immunocompromised. We kindly ask that you strictly adhere to these guidelines. If you have any questions, please reach out to our wedding planner, Roey Mizrahi.
Parking at The DeBruce is extremely limited + reserved for guests staying on property for the weekend. We are arranging shuttles from our Room Block hotels: Kenoza Hall, The Roscoe Motel + The Arnold House to The DeBruce for our wedding on Saturday and back at the end of the night. The Arnold House (13 minutes drive) has sufficient parking for all of our guests to leave their cars and jump on our shuttle straight to The DeBruce. This is a great option for our guests staying at local AirBnb's!
We are working on a shuttle schedule and will be posting it here shortly!
Sensible footwear! Saturday's wedding ceremony will be in a clearing in the woods and reception tented in a field. Even in the summer months it gets chilly at night, so bring a light jacket or lots of layers at the very least. And no matter the time of year, you’ll want a swimsuit—for river time, sauna hangs, or a dip in The DeBruce’s pool.
Unless your invitation is addressed to you and your significant other we ask that you ride solo. We have an incredibly large family and only one tent. Thank you so much for understanding.
Ridesharing hasn't really taken the Catskills by storm quite yet, but there are a few taxi companies in the area. If you plan on taking a taxi, please keep in mind that these services are limited and may not always be the most reliable on short notice, so it is better to call and schedule a day or two in advance!

When you stay in one town, like Callicoon or Woodstock, you can definitely walk within it. But if you’re exploring beyond the main street, you’ll have to do it sans sidewalk (read: you’ll need a car).
Cycle away! In addition to trails like the O&W Rail Trail that are perfect for cyclists, drivers are accustomed to sharing the road with cyclists.
Farm to table is the word up here. Check out our Catskills page to find our list of all time favorite Catskill culinary delights.
There are small markets and your standards (like Peck’s Market) for healthy necessities—plus farmers’ markets in most towns during the Summer months for fresh produce. Check out our favorite Farmer’s Market in Callicoon on Saturday’s all season long.
