Courtney & Mischa - June 2008
"We searched for our a wedding venue for nearly 6 months in an attempt to find a place that reflected the beauty and bounty of the Hudson Valley and on our first visit to Apple Barn Farm, we knew we had found the right spot. Mary Beth and Kerri were incredibly responsive to all of our requests and concerns and made terrific suggestions throughout our year-long planning process and were available whenever needed to meet in person. They worked tirelessly to coordinate our vendors and make the barn and grounds look beautiful. The wedding day itself ran incredibly smoothly and each of the details we had planned were in place. We couldn't have been happier and will always reflect fondly on our good fortune in finding such a special place to share with our family and friends."

Julie & Jonathan - June 2008
"We searched through southern Vermont, The Berkshires, The Catskills, and The Hudson Valley from Albany to Putnam County for a wedding venue.  We wanted to find a beautiful barn, but - because many our guests were traveling to the venue from various places, most of which were far away - we needed a place that was also easily accessible by car, train, and plane.  We didn't want to spend all our money on a wedding venue, but we wanted a place that reflected our tastes and that would make the trip worthwhile for us and for our guests, a place that had charm but that was also in close proximity to a fun, hip town that offered stylish and affordable accommodations.  Basically, we wanted, as most people do, a wedding venue that was spectacular but practical.  Not easy.  We spent week after week logging tons of time online, searching message boards and Web sites, but we couldn't find what we wanted.  We drove one weekend after another, visiting as many as two or three venues a day in some cases, going from state to state, looking for a venue that would work.  But none did.  Not until we found Apple Barn Farm.  We signed a contract in fall, and, from that time until our wedding in June, Mary Beth and Kerri worked energetically, resourcefully, and thoroughly.  They gave us candid assessments of costs, limitations, and the basics, and they sincerely invested themselves in helping us create a successful wedding and reception, right through to the end.  When it was all over, we couldn't believe things went as smoothly as they did.  Our guests raved about the venue, and, during the event itself, Mary Beth and Kerri pulled off that rare balancing act between being supportive and efficient while somehow, at the same time, remaining almost unnoticeable.  Simply put, we had a magical night, our guests were glowing, and we still have money in our savings account!  Some people think back on their weddings and remember the blunders or regret the expenses.  We'll think back and remember the idyllic scenery, the romance, and the carefree fun."

Jeff & Renee - May 2008
"We wanted a unique location for our outdoor wedding ceremony and a carefree party for our reception. We searched online for hours trying to find the perfect combination in a wedding venue. When we found Apple Barn Farm's website, we had a feeling it was the place. On the day after Thanksgiving, Mary Beth gave us a tour of the barn and snowcovered grounds, and we immediately set the date for our Memorial Day weekend wedding. Mary Beth and Kerri worked tirelessly to help us plan our wedding in a relatively short amount of time (6 months) and also when we were living out of state. Apple Barn Farm allowed for much creativity in planning both the ceremony and reception, as evidenced by Renee and the bridal party arriving to the ceremony in a school bus! At both the ceremony and reception, the staff was exceptionally helpful and treated us and our guests with the utmost respect. Our guests still rave about our wedding. When we think about our day, we smile and laugh. If you're looking for a rustic country wedding, Apple Barn Farm has it all. Some of our favorite memories were the kids feeding the horses candy from the mason jars, and our guests making smores over the bonfire. And on top
of all that, the Farmhouse Rental is a charming location to have for the long weekend for out-of-town guests to gather both before and after the wedding."

Sarah & Ben - September 2008
"We are so grateful for our experience at ABF! The site conveys such simple natural beauty, and we were able to host the wedding we wanted - relaxed and welcoming. Saying vows under an expansive sky, while looking at beautiful trees and water - incredibly meaningful. And celebrating on the lawn, dancing in the barn, sitting by the campfire - so free and fun! We and our guests loved everything about the weekend - we rented the Route 66 Farmhouse for our RH dinner and an informal brunch on Sunday - and Kerri and Mary Beth worked tirelessly to make it all special and personal, with careful regard for our families' needs and our own inclinations."

Aaron & Rebecca - September 2007
"When we pulled into the driveway of the Apple Barn Farm, we knew we had found the perfect location for our fall wedding. We were immediately impressed with the grounds, which were immaculate with sweeping lawns and well maintained flowerbeds. We were equally impressed with MaryBeth and Kerri who attended to every detail to ensure our reception was absolutely flawless. From the hayride to the warm cider and donuts, to the bonfire and canning jar lanterns, the Apple Barn Farm is THE setting for a rustic, but elegant country wedding. We have fond memories of our special day and continue to get rave reviews from guests who comment on the unique location and gracious staff."
