Thank you note
So many words come to mind when I think of this year: joy, kindness, generosity, illumination. You were all of these things and more. Your joy during the planning made this year so much fun. Your kindness and generosity when it came to adapting the farm to my vision was incredible. You have a very rare gift in your kindness toward others and it was clearly infectious with my family in the planning of our wedding. Throughout this year you illuminated my vision. I had many ideas, but it was you and your team who put them into action and turned them into something truly beautiful.
The months leading up to the wedding were so much fun because of your encouragement and constant support. The weeks before the wedding were exciting and incredibly joyous because of the tips you gave me and my family. The days before the wedding, while busy, reminded me that the farm is something ever changing for the better and always beautiful because of the effort you put into it.
The wedding weekend itself was a dream. I knew what most of the pieces would look like, but together it was a truly flawless execution of my wishes and dreams. With the help of your team, you helped me enjoy every single moment.
I cannot even begin to thank you for this year, these past months, weeks, days, and for the most beautiful wedding weekend I could have ever imagined. It was out of my wildest dreams.
From the bottom of my heart, Thank you.
Laura & Brandon
Liberty View Farm is known for its attention to detail. The ambience truly comes alive at each unique wedding, party or event. The bucolic land and vibrant energy harkens back to my youth in Europe and NYC. I have gleaned knowledge from years of attending parties and fundraisers my family have hosted and attended. I have always been impressed with the smallest details and spectacular decorations that creates the most visual impact. I've combined my life experience and desire to be surrounded with natural beauty along with the responsibility and hard work to make each event memorable. Each special couple on my farm has the opportunity to utilize our seasonal veggies and produce like the plethora of organic biodynamic apples or freshly cut flowers to create a joyous and romantic wedding day that leaves everyone with lasting memories.
Liberty View Farm provides a wonderful backdrop, a clean slate where together with our clients we produce a wonderful wedding experience. Hosting a wedding on our farm can be as simple or elaborate as one wishes. The farm, it's gardens and views have all been designed to make the most of every celebration. Around every corner is another beautiful view. Every function was taken into consideration when gardens were planned. The master site plan was designed with many things in mind so having an event here on the farm flows as people walk and even where vehicles drive and parking is out of site but very close by. We actually call our staff and people we work with 'Producers' because we see our wedding couples as the Stars! Our attention to details is unsurpassed. These are just a few reasons why Liberty View Farm is the best farm wedding venue in the Hudson Valley.
Liberty View Farm Wedding Venue is a minimum three-day event where you connect with family and friends on a much deeper level. Friday- decorate with friends and family, have rehearsal in the late afternoon and then rehearsal dinner right here on the farm. Can be catered or use our BBQs. Saturday- the Wedding! Cocktail reception, lawn games, dinner, dancing in barn (barn weddings are the best!) then close the night with a bon fire. Sunday- brunch in the orchard! A long table in an isle of the apple orchard. And Mid August thru end of October you and your guests go apple picking right after brunch! If you get married earlier in the season you come back in the fall and invite your guests to go apple picking.
Liberty View Farm hosts perfect events:
