Getting married — to quote a well-worn phrase — just ain’t what it used to be. Not all that long ago, many brides exchanged vows with their grooms after walking down the aisle of the local church, organ music swelling in the background. Today, couples are pledging to love, honor, and cherish each other on a sandy beach, among the gravestones in a cemetery, in the stands at Yankee Stadium — even while sky-diving. Along with its laundry list of historic properties and bucolic farms, the Valley offers several uncommon sites — from an 18th-century barn to a replica of a Norman castle — where you can begin your life of wedded bliss.
