Rhinebeck, NY (CNN) - For days, the grass in front of the Beekman Arms Inn in Rhinebeck, New York has looked like the White House North Lawn. The hotel, reportedly hosting many of Chelsea Clinton's wedding guests, is surrounded by reporters, all clamoring for the smallest detail about the closely-guarded affair.
Clinton, 30, is expected to wed investment banker Marc Mezvinsky, 32, in the town on Saturday at Astor Courts, a posh estate built more than a century ago along the Hudson River.
Until tomorrow, visitors will be able to come as close to the mansion as the gated, dirt road entrance to the property (the venue is about a half mile past its gate). On Saturday, the road leading to Astor Courts, as well as the air space above it will be blocked. State police will also be patrolling the parts of the Hudson with "high traffic." All in an effort presumably to ensure both security and privacy for Clinton's nuptials.
Sawhorses are currently stacked on River Road, the road leading to the estate, and there has been construction on the road this week.
