Magical venue for a city couple
Buttermilk was a spectacular venue for our wedding of 50 people. It was a perfect escape from our home in NYC, but close enough that our city friends could still come up just for the wedding. The grounds at Buttermilk are gorgeous, especially for us in late May. We held our ceremony on the patio overlooking the Hudson, with the reception in the barn. The food for both cocktail hour and dinner very much impressed, since the catering goes through the on-premise restaurant Henry's at the Farm. Multiple guests remarked how much they enjoyed their meals, which was important for us since we think bad wedding food can ruin the evening. We also did the rehearsal dinner -- a whole roast pig! -- at Buttermilk, which was awesome. The barn is perfect for smaller weddings, as it has an intimate feeling without being too rustic (like some barn venues can be). Having the rooms available on-site for VIPs is also a huge plus, though we also booked a block of rooms for other guests for overflow and for who did not want to spend as much. What you will not find advertised on Buttermilk's website though is the exceptional staff, especially the wedding coordinator Michael. He helped manage the entire wedding planning process from the Buttermilk side and was able to anticipate many of our questions in advance. His list of recommended vendors was also stellar, especially since his working relationships with them made the evening run even more smoothly. Day-of, Michael kept the evening running on-schedule which let us just enjoy the time with our guests. The serving staff that Michael also selected for both the rehearsal and reception were very professional while also being friendly and personable. The entire weekend felt so magical, and we really owe a lot of that to Buttermilk.Sent on 07/28/2019

Our wedding would just not have been as good without Michael, and the whole team, at Buttermilk Falls. It’s hard to even imagine that we once considered anywhere else. First, he location is absolutely gorgeous. The estate is 75 acres in the Hudson valley, and has breathtaking views of the Hudson river, as well as picturesque trees, bridges, and more. There are a variety of backdrops where you can get married, from a cozier area under a willow tree to a pavilion overlooking the river to a large rustic barn that is perfect for both the reception or the ceremony. There are rooms in the inn, or several cottages and guest houses for you and your guests that is not only convenient but makes everyone feel like they are part of a special vacation from the outside world. We worked with Michael over the course of several months. There were things we didn’t even know we needed to plan for that were made effortless. Our rehearsal dinner and our reception were catered by Henry’s, the farm-to-table restaurant there, and we had a variety of options, all delicious. The staff came to know us over those couple of nights such that we not only all knew each other by name, but we felt they were a *part* of our wedding as much as our guests. We were delighted to see later that the serving team took a group photo to leave for us. There’s just no way to articulate comprehensively everything that made this the right choice. Essentially, everything was made easier for us, and nothing was made harder. All of our guests fell in love with the place, and to a one, the guests said it was one of the best weddings they’d ever been to. Something that says a lot: we had planned to get married on the pavilion. But it rained the day of our wedding. Far from being a catastrophe, the team quickly set up the barn for the ceremony and it was so good, we forgot we hadn’t decided to get married there to begin with. We loved our experience & it’s kind of a shame we just can’t do it all over again.Sent on 08/15/2018

We got married at Buttermilk last July; it was a fabulous experience! The venue is so beautiful, food is delicious and staff is very professional; Michael Elbe and his team took care of everything so the day went smoothly. Also the venue is close to Poughkeepsie train station so guests coming from New York can take the train from Grand Central and don’t need to drive...Sent on 09/30/2018
