After our couples book at the Farmhouse, we ask them one simple question.

"Why us?"

"Sharon, I'm so happy you have this question. Our venue hunt was so easy, we only had to take one step out of the car before we fell completely in love with you and your farm. We knew we wanted a barn wedding but what you offer is so much more. Your vision is exactly in line with mine. You have that unique barn feeling with all the glamorous touches. We love that you keep all your decorations up year around so we will have minimal decorating to do day of. All we've been able to do is brag to our friends about how amazing our venue is and can't wait for the day they get to see it for themselves."

"When looking for a place to marry your best friend and high school sweetheart it can be a challenge. We wanted to make sure the venue truly represented us and Gilbertsville was exactly that. My love for sparkle and Chandeliers definitely played a role in my hunt for the perfect wedding venue. I was also determined not to get married in a banquet hall, I really wanted a rustic vintage feel for our Big Day. I also, grew up with a yearly tradition of going camping and Chris grew up with a love for the outdoors and animals. So when we came across Gilbertsville Farmhouse and discovered that it was all packaged up into one gorgeous location, we were sold. I remember the day I brought Chris to visit all he kept saying was I want to move there."

"We had originally looked at a venue in Maine, but after a lot of disappointing replies and some serious prayer, we realized that keeping closer to home would be a better idea. We started looking in upstate NY and stumbled across your website. The minute I read your "About" page, I knew. It wasn't a cookie cutter story about how much you love your business or why you love doing weddings - it was a real, deep story about love and commitment to each other and your faith, which really stood out. It made me feel like we already knew you, and it made coming to visit to see the site all the more special. We just knew the more we looked into what the venue is and could be that it would be the perfect place to stand before family, friends and God to profess our love and commit our lives to each other."

"We can dance all night long and then sleep over! The beauty of the barn and the grounds took our breath away when we first visited- we felt the magic!

"We were looking for an intimate, rustic farmhouse setting and felt instantly at home and comfortable with the venue and Sharon! It provides such an outstanding vibe and ambiance and we can't wait to share this special day and create our memories there!"

"Simplicity is our motto and that's what stood out to us when we saw Gillbertsville. Aside from this, we felt are home after we met Sharon. When we found out that she was a Queens native, it all made sense! :)"

".... I knew that a typical ballroom wedding style was not my style and something I did not want so I started searching different themes. Gilbertsville was literally the only venue we saw in person and as soon as we got in the car to drive back home we decided to get married there. Looking forward to our wedding day on 10/7."
