The Kindred Creeks story is a bit of a fairytale really. It begins all the way back in 1973 when Jerry Cartwright married the love of his life, Pam and together they made three beautiful girls, the Cartwright daughters. In 1981, the pair opened Cartwright Catering and as a family, they began their dive into the event and wedding industry.
In the years that followed, the Cartwright family business went from catering to table rentals to tents and grew from a small, intimate company to a full-service tent and event rental company with every color linen, 300 person tents and dozens of delivery vehicles. The company was even featured in The New York Times and The Avenue magazines.
As for the daughters, Tracey, Jill and Laura, they grew up in the event rental industry, watching, learning and helping the company as it grew and evolved. As they got older, each took on unique responsibilities until in 1999, Jerry Cartwright changed the name to Cartwright and Daughters Tent & Party Rentals. That little name change honored the girls and all the hard work they invested in the business and together, they made the company what it is today.
For over 39 years, the Cartwright family has been serving customers throughout the Hudson Valley from lower Dutchess and Putnam to Orange, Westchester and Connecticut. It is their dedication to customer service that has earned them an impeccable reputation that they are now bringing with them into the next chapter, Kindred Creeks.
Kindred Creeks was an organic extension of the Cartwright family business and the girls’ love of the wedding industry. Just a few miles from the Cartwright showroom, Kindred Creeks sits on a 70 acre working farm, exactly where the Whaley Lake stream and Gardner Hollow stream join as one – just like Jerry and Pam did all those years ago. Host to weddings as well as many other events, Kindred Creeks has the unique benefit of three decades of Cartwright industry experience plus turnkey access to tenting, linens, tables, decor and other event elements that make it easy to plan your event. Most of all, the venue is owned and operated by the Cartwright daughters and Jerry and Pam still live on the farm.
Some things are just meant to be.
