Our Perfect Wedding Day!
I should start by saying that our wedding was nearly five months ago, and everyone is STILL talking about it! It truly is the greatest feeling in the world when you get to listen to your family and friends gush about your wedding and the beautiful and unique venue!Sent on 03/23/2019
Crested Hen was our absolute perfect wedding venue. Much of its uniqueness is derived from the love and devotion that Frank and Richie have poured into the Crested Hen. Like I said, our wedding day was perfect!
Wedding planning was an extremely stressful time for us as our original wedding venue cancelled three months out from our wedding day. However, with our day set in stone, and most of our vendors booked, we began to scramble to find a replacement venue. At that time, we really thought that we would be settling with a venue. But by some miracle, we were brought to Crested Hen through a cancellation! From the moment, we pulled into the property, and before we even started our meeting with Richie, we knew that we found the place we wanted to get married. We later learned that it was truly meant to be as the Crested Hen is typically booked a year (or more) in advance.
Without hesitation, we knew that we had to get married at the Crested Hen. So with less than three months to our wedding, Frank and Richie worked extremely diligently to make sure that we were able to make our wedding a reality.
What makes Crested Hen so special is the genuine sincerity of Frank, who truly wants you to have your perfect wedding. When you have a wedding at the Crested Hen it really is as if you are being welcomed into the arms of family. Frank and Richie worked endlessly and helped make our vision become a reality. Our only regret was that we didn't get to spend more time with Frank and Richie!!!
When we initially began looking at wedding venues, we knew we wanted something different, something that let us control the flow and feel of our wedding and allow us to truly enjoy and celebrate! Crested Hen was all of that and more. When you walk into the Crested Hen, you feel the magic of the venue! Like I said, that magic should be attributed to the love, care and attention that Frank and Richie pour into the Crested Hen. When you book Crested Hen for your wedding, you are getting so much more than a wedding venue, you are getting a group of individuals who will help and ensure that your day will be all you wished and more. Our wedding was magical and we owe that all to Frank and Richie!
Crested Hen Farms's reply:Thank you guys so much for a lovely review. I truly miss you both and was so honored to be part of your beautiful wedding! When I first met you both, it was so meant to be. Please please please come up for a visit soon and as I said, my house is always open to you to stay! Baghdad and Cairo miss you too!!! Much love to you both!

Rustic, Fall Wedding
I have always wanted a barn wedding. When my husband and I pulled up to Crested Hen Farms a year ago, we knew this was the venue for us. Frank, is the accommodating and nicest person I've ever met, and Rich and his crew are such hard workers, and did everything they could to make sure that our day was everything we wanted. With a nor'easter landing on our wedding day, Frank and Rich allowed us to transform the barn with tents, heaters, etc. to make sure that all of our guests were as comfortable as they could be. They kept reassuring us that everything would be great and made sure that it was. We could not be more thankful for the flexibility and the hard work that came from the staff at CHF. Would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for an amazing barn wedding!Sent on 11/18/2018

Rustic elegance in the heart of the countryside
We had our wedding at Crested Hen Farms in October. I have always wanted a barn wedding and this venue is simply magical. Frank and Rich were responsive from start to finish. They eased our worries throughout the year of planning, accommodated our every need, and were there throughout the day of to make sure that we were having a blast. The venue itself is beyond beautiful and Frank and Rich make sure your vision is carried out. From getting ready in the farmhouse, saying our vows next to the Roundout Creek, and dancing the night away in the cozy ambiance of the barn. DIY weddings can be exhausting but Crested Hen made the process enjoyable from start to finish. Thank you Frank and Rich for making our special day everything we could have imagined and more!Sent on 11/10/2018
Frank with Crested Hen Farms was lovely to work with. His venue is our ideal space to photograph in. A venue that provides a roof and gorgeous land for us to shoot on is a photographer's DREAM! Crested Hen Farms has unending beauty, a great team and all around positive vibes. Can't wait to get back to the farm!
Crested Hen Farms is one of my all time favorite venues in the Hudson Valley! The property is absolutely stunning and it comes with so many amazing features to utilize, such as their mix match tables and chairs, plates and silverware and their props in the prop barn that you can select from is amazing! Frank and Richie are so personable, friendly and professional! An absolutely pleasure to work with!!
Such a gorgeous venue run by incredible people with an eye for detail and beauty.
