Why have your wedding at a country club?
One of the biggest current trends in weddings is having everything at the same location. This makes things easier and convenient for both the bridal party and wedding guests, by having the rehearsal, ceremony and reception all at the same spot. Albany Country Club offers beautiful unique locations both indoors and out.  Whether in our beautiful Albany Room, with its vaulted ceiling and views overlooking our golf course, or our breathtaking patio with views of downtown Albany, your ceremony can be the one you’ve always dreamed of.  Since we only host one wedding per day, we can focus all our attention on your event, and you can begin at the time that’s most convenient for you and your guests. Our majestic ballroom, surrounded by windows, is a beautiful setting for dinner and dancing, and the cocktail reception can either be held outside on our patio or in our recently renovated pre-function area.  We have several smaller rooms as well, so the bridal party can relax in our elegant Living Room after the ceremony, and our Mohawk Room, with its private entrance, is a perfect spot for the bride and her attendants, for hair and make-up prior to the ceremony. The groom and his groomsmen can relax and enjoy a complimentary round of golf on our championships course during the days leading up to the special day.Our experienced staff will handle every detail, from the early planning stages to the final execution, so you can spend your time celebrating with your friends and family in the relaxed luxury you deserve.

We specialize in important events such as weddings, proms, Bat Mitzvahs, etc. The bloom. make-up bar has an elegant, yet friendly atmosphere…we like to call it our very own “chic candy land.” It is full of pastel colors and vintage refurbished furniture.

The Old Daley Inn
on Crooked Lake House
2339 State Route 43 & 66, Averill Park
674.3131; www.olddaleyinn.com

“When small is BIG” – working with Old Daley Catering and its affiliated companies. We are Old Daley Catering, Old Daley Inn on Crooked Lake and Saratoga Polo and we are very excited about the direction our companies are moving in. Crooked Lake has been voted the “Best Event Venue” in CRL’s 2014 Best of survey and our catering company took a very honorable second place in the “Best Caterer” category. With this forward movement we are always conscious of our goals as a company, to stay small enough to please but large enough to deliver.  Although we are the second largest independent catering company in the area, we are still a tight knit company. Staying “smaller” has allowed us to be a “custom” caterer – something that our customers want and we feel very passionate about. With being small come some very BIG ideas! Every bride we meet with wants to make their wedding “different,” but somehow in the planning process, each wedding seems to fall back into the same format as previous ones. This does not have to be! The event planners in our company dream of new ways to keep our couples and their guests engaged and excited about the day and event.  We love a challenge! Why not do a short cocktail hour before the ceremony? How about “Breakfast” for dinner? Consider “Era”–based menus, “International” Stations and “Desserts First”!  Or, in classic polo fashion, how about “Sabaring” a bottle of champagne before the toast? The ideas and options are limitless. Work with us and have fun putting together a most memorable day!
