REVIEWS

MIKE + GRACE | JULY 2018

The Barn was the perfect venue for our wedding. From the start Danni and Blanche set us at ease with their incredible responsiveness and help in finding different vendors in the area. They went above and beyond throughout the whole process. The venue is well run and everything was easy day of. Blanche was on site the day before to talk through things with us and make sure that everything was set up as we wanted. She helped day of as well to make sure things were going smoothly. With so much space to work with, we are able to have our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception all in different areas to make the night even more fun. Many other perks like the bonfire pit, great brides and grooms suite to hang out in beforehand, golf cart for some of our older guests, the hilltop for perfect evening pictures and the list goes on. I couldn’t think of a more perfect place to get married!

EMILY + DAVID | JUNE 2018

I still get teary-eyed thinking about how much I love the BARN at Liberty Farms. The moment we pulled up the driveway and walked into the barn, we knew this was it. Meeting Blanche felt like we were seeing a long time friend, she made us feel right at home. Blanche is incredible and could not have been more helpful and flexible the weekend of the wedding.
Danni and Blanche are the best team and made our dreams come true! Since we did not hire a planner and this is my first (and last) time planning a wedding, we were a bit in the dark on where to begin. The BARN helped us every step of the way. From the vendor list, the late night (and quick response) emails, to the drive up the hilltop, we felt beyond supported by the BARN.
We could not have imagined a better place to get married. The venue thought of everything, both large and small details. Blanche even tracks the sun and she knew exactly where to position the ceremony so all our guests would be covered in shade!! Plus we had the best fire pit to end the night. The barn and grounds are stunning, and we feel so lucky we found this magical space.

Thank you, thank you, thank you BARN at Liberty Farms, we are forever thankful.

MARIELLE + SHANE | JUNE 2018

Had my wedding here this past June. I couldn’t have imagined what my wedding would have been like anywhere else. It was everything you would want out of a venue.
The grounds and BARN itself are gorgeous enough that any decor you give it will only make an already beautiful space better. We are a simple couple, so for us having a venue that had built in beauty was important, so we could just add touches throughout and it still feel special. Having outdoor components to the wedding was important to us, and you are able to really make full use of the grounds. We had an outdoor ceremony in one of the paddocks, and made use of the firepit on the adjacent paddock, as well as an outdoor cocktail hour just outside of the BARN. It was so unique to me to have so many freedoms in one venue.
After ceremony we got whisked away on a golfcart to get our first bride and groom pics on this breathtaking mountain view hilltop and share those first few minutes of married life to ourselves. It was so beautiful and special, I will never forget that.
Danni was exceptionally good with coordinating through email, response time was literally always less than 5 minutes, no matter what time of day. And Blanche was with us from first venue meeting and all throughout the big day. As a bride, it is so touching and humbling to have someone like Blanche who is genuinely just as excited for your wedding as you are, she was more than just a venue coordinator, you feel like your forever part of the BARN family.
They also have a super convenient and exceptionally tastefully decorated renovated Farmhouse for the couples to rent for wedding weekend, that we rented for grooms family who was coming in from out of town, to give them an extra special stay. We held our rehersal dinner there as there were a couple eating areas, a picnic table, a grill, a screened in porch, and a beautiful open farmstyle kitchen.
Blanche was super open to any and all ideas, and truly loves seeing weddings come to life at the BARN. You can tell she takes pride in the space and loves seeing her couples happy.
The BARN is the perfect venue to really set the tone for what a profound commitment you are embarking on when you take the leap of marriage.

SALLY | MOTHER OF THE BRIDE | JUNE 2018

Mother of the Bride chiming in to let folks know that this is the greatest wedding venue around! Danni and Blanche are so responsive. They helped us plan each step of the way! Any questions we had were answered immediately! We went to visit it a second time after booking it - it took almost two years to plan this wedding so we needed a reminder of what the venue looked like. You get a lot with the venue price. We used their chairs for the ceremony and rented chairs from Columbia Tent rentals. We had no wedding planner but didn’t need one with Blanche helping us keep organized. Jeff Loshinsky catering also helped us tremendously when planning the flow of the evening! Everyone who attended the wedding said this venue was extra special! We can’t recommend The Barn at Liberty Farms enough- they are the best!

COLLEEN + THOMAS | MAY 2018

We had our May wedding at The Barn at Liberty Farms and also used the Silo View house to stay in and get ready. It ended up raining so we did our first look in the house as well and it was perfect!! Our guests and caterers still can not stop staying how beautiful the venue was. And the rentals and caterer continue to praise how efficient Blanche was in helping with setup and organizing drop off times. We loved our entire experience with The Barn at Liberty Farms and their staff and would have had it no other way for our wedding day! HIGHLY RECOMMEND

BROOKE + JAMES | MAY 2018

Danni and Blanche, with owner Mark, run an incredibly professional operation at their stunning barn in Ghent. We initially visited in the grip of winter (trying to imagine what it would look like in Spring) and they could not have been more welcoming and attentive. There are so many questions - guest numbers, fire regulations, catering facilities, parking, insurance, best place for the ceremony etc.. Over the coming months, they were lovely to deal with and had all the right answers.
The barn itself is beautifully maintained. It has heating and air conditioning. There is a large main room with high ceilings that accommodates 140 people - with side rooms to configure as you like - bars, sofas, a band etc. There are two private dressing rooms, bathrooms in the building, easy parking, a fire pit, and vast green spaces.
I’d absolutely recommend this place.

Brianne + Ryan | December 2017

"We had our winter wedding at the barn and it could not have been more perfect!! Leading up to our wedding, the staff was helpful during our tour and very reponsive to any questions we had along the way. They offer valuable tools that help simplify the planning process. The venue is beautiful, unique and easily decorated to suit your style. Our wedding day ran very smooth, even during the first snowfall and without a wedding planner. Guests enjoyed the different stations such as the photo booth, bar, lounge and desserts located within the redone horse stalls. Even during the winter, the barn was warm and guests were comfortable. We had 120 guests who were mainly kept inside due to the snow storm and space was not a concern. You will not be disappointed!"

Leah + Orlando - October 2017

"We are so, so thrilled that we chose The Barn at Liberty Farms for our wedding venue. It was a total dream come true. The folks there were so quick to respond to any inquiries we had while planning, and they let us carry out our vision for the wedding exactly as we wanted it to be. They were accommodating, had helpful suggestions, and connected us with all of the vendors that we used for the event. The venue is absolutely beautiful and many of our guests said it was the best wedding they had ever been to! Thank you so much Danni & Co. for helping us make our wedding unforgettable!"

Alex + Victoria | October 2017

"If I could give 10 stars I would! My fiancee and I knew we wanted a barn venue upstate and we came across Liberty as part of our search. It was the first barn we visited and we fell in love instantly, even though it was still under construction. We visited a few other places within the span of a few months but we kept coming back to Liberty as it was by far the nicest place! Not only that, but Danni and her team were the most responsive and helpful ever! Danni answered all of our questions, and promptly, since day 1 - which was over a year before the wedding day. She helped guide us every step of the way. Danni and Blanche are the nicest people we've ever worked with and we're so grateful they were there for us. They gave us their professional advice and recommendations which we were so grateful of. Everything went really smoothly on the big day. All of our guests loved the venue as it was unique and beautiful all at once. I wish we could do it all over again!!"

Elizabeth - October 2017

"The Barn at Liberty Farms is a beautiful place for a wedding. The space has been meticulously restored and the eight paddocks were great spaces for a bar, dessert area, play space for kids, etc. Everything was beautifully arranged and the wedding and reception went flawlessly. We forgot to bring lunch for the bridesmaids, so the woman running the venue gave us a phone number to call and she picked up sandwiches for us. Everybody there is super kind and helpful. They also recommended some great vendors."

Alex + Maks  | September 2017

"We had a very clear vision of what we wanted for our wedding, so the moment we saw The Barn at Liberty Farms, we knew it was our place. Danni, our main point of contact during the planning process, was responsive and accommodating, and Blanche, our weekend-of contact, could not have been more sweet and helpful. This is the perfect venue if you're looking for a chic space in a rustic setting. Thank you to the whole staff for helping us bring our dream wedding to life."

Catie + Bill | September 2017

"I can't say enough good things about the Barn, the gorgeous land, and the awesome team working at Liberty Farms. Everyone we dealt with there was professional, friendly, and accommodating. We requested to get into the space very last minute a few times for planning and they always responded right away and made it possible. The Barn is beautifully renovated and needs very little decor and the land surrounding it is the ultimate backdrop-it's all a great blank slate that couples can do a little or a lot with depending on their taste . Our wedding day was wonderful and beyond our wildest dreams. Our guests could not stop raving about the setting. It truly feels so private and otherworldly. I would urge anyone considering an upstate or barn wedding to book the Barn at Liberty Farms, you won't regret it!"

Candice + Chris | September 2017

"The BARN at Liberty Farms is a magical place for a wedding! The staff is amazing, and Danni, the Events Manager, is a true gem.  She went above and beyond to take good care of us prior to the wedding, and is full of great ideas to inspire you. She was always so responsive to our emails and calls (of which there were a lot of) which made the whole process enjoyable and stress-free! The grounds of the venue are exceptionally beautiful and the inside of the BARN is bright, airy and well lit. There is plenty of open space and lots of options for your cocktail hour and ceremony.    For photos, we had a personal golf cart driver to take us up to the hilltop where there are breathtaking views of the Berkshire and Catskill mountains overlooking the farm.  A must see! The BARN only holds one event per weekend.  This is a huge benefit other venues did not offer, and thus, we felt we were given the personal attention we needed. We had the entire day before the wedding to set up and get settled.  Blanche, the day-of coordinator, was so helpful, offering her help to set up tables (of which the BARN provides) and even assisting us with making our centerpieces!!  The BARN is more than just a venue. It provides a one-of-a-kind experience with wonderful memories that are sure to last a lifetime. It is a blank canvas of endless possibilities and is the perfect destination for a fairytale wedding. My deepest gratitude goes to Mark, Bev, Danni and Blanche for their incredible work."

Jess + Ben | August 2017

"My husband and I knew that we wanted a barn wedding and had originally planned on a more rustic feel. But when we went to visit, we instantly knew it was the place. The pictures online are beautiful but in person the barn will blow you away. We were lucky enough to grab a date at the end of August and even before we signed the contract, we entered a great relationship with their staff. From start to finish, Danni, Blanche, and Mark were beyond helpful, accommodating, and just overall incredible people. They lightened my planning by making things seamless, less stressful, and dare I say it, fun. They checked in regularly without ever feeling overbearing, they offered great ideas/inspo, they always responded promptly. I have nothing but kind words for them all - thank you for bringing my dream wedding to life!!!"

Sam + Charlie | July 2017

"Positively magical venue. The space alone would have been fastastic; the farm and barn are breathtakingly beautiful and so well maintained. But the staff was also incredible from booking through the day of the wedding. They helped us find vendors, gave us floor plans, and added so many details that we never would have thought of, all of which helped the night go perfectly. Couldn't be happier."

Kriten + Jared | June 2018

"I would recommend the Barn at Liberty Farms to everyone! It was the most magical day. The staff was so accommodating and they made sure my day was amazing!!!! I want to relive the day over and over and over again. Seriously, best place to have a wedding. Hands down!"

Gina + Gianfranco | June 2017

"Before the wedding, Bev, Mark, and Danni were absolutely wonderful to work with. Such nice people!! They even had a country house for us to reserve for some of our guests. The barn- It was the most beautiful place to Have a special event. So many areas to have a creative and fun wedding! We had cocktail hour outside, with garden games in the yards, then a photobooth in the stalls, with a bar in the other stall- so clean, so chic, so cool. Best wedding ever! Thank you all!!"

Jin-Ah + Chris | May 2017

"My husband and I had our wedding here in May -- memorial weekend. We live 2 hours away so we were only able to visit the venue once before we decided to book it. Danni, was AMAZING with communication and answering all of our questions. We were amazed at the beauty of the venue, it was just what we were looking for. They really worked with us and made sure we had planned it exactly how we wanted it. The wedding day was a dream and it was perfect. We had our ceremony outdoors and the reception indoors. This venue is truly beautiful and is a perfect venue for those who want a rustic barn yet modern and classy wedding! Thank you Liberty Farms!!!"

Jen Houle - August 2016

"This venue was the perfect setting for our wedding this past August. We loved the lush, beautifully manicured outdoor space which we utilized for our ceremony and cocktail hour. And then hosted dinner and dancing in the barn later in the evening. We used the horse stalls to house the bars, a seating lounge, and a photo booth area. We opted for both the golf cart/driver to assist our guests and the fire pit for late night s'mores. The bathrooms are exquisite and the location was just a few miles from the city of Hudson, Amtrak, and the Taconic Parkway. The staff was a pleasure to work with, helping my coordinator and myself with ideas and walk-throughs. I highly recommend this stunning rustic, yet elegant setting."
