Best Wedding & Venue EVER!
We absolutely had the best wedding ever and couldn't be more grateful for Frank and Rich. From the first visit to Crested Hen, to our wedding day, every time it got more and more magical. I found Crested Hen years ago on Instagram before I met my husband and always felt this connection with the space. When my husband and I got engaged I knew we had to go and when we went, we both fell in love right away. We knew we had to have our wedding there. Frank was so welcoming and friendly and Rich was just as friendly and funny to speak with. We even got farm fresh eggs from the hens, and they were delicious!Sent on 12/11/2019
Frank and Rich were so amazing to work with and helpful, we were so lucky to have them. We had some bumps in the road with planning and they made sure on their end to make it as easy as possible and went above and beyond to help us. They were so responsive throughout the whole process and were so organized. Also Frank and Rich really know the area and gave us the best recommendations and directions. We are so thankful for them and feel like we gained friends out of Rich and Frank. We will miss talking to them all the time !
The venue is absolutely breathtaking and the day of the wedding the space really came alive. The venue has a barn full of vintage, collectible, hidden antique gems you could use for your wedding day - that was absolutely amazing and helped save us a lot of money on décor and went with the vibe of the venue. The venue also provided wooden farm tables, chairs and mismatched silverware and plates, that looked absolutely stunning! I wanted a rustic romantic eclectic style wedding - and it came out perfect with everything from crested hen!! Also the property is meticulously maintained with beautiful landscaping. After all the planning and minimal decorations and our personal touches (cause the space is beautiful on its own) everything looked perfect. Also I must note, the Crested Hen Staff the day of the wedding and leading up did an amazing job facilitating everything from table setup, valet, to setting up the bonfire, the heat lamps, thank you all! All our pictures came out STUNNING and we wish we could relive this day over and over again.
We also rented the houses across the street for friends and family and it was a perfect add on to our day. It is a quick walk across the street to the venue and made it easier for our family to get to and from.
We couldn't imagine having our wedding anywhere else. It was a one of a kind wedding and everyone we came continues to say how amazing the venue and wedding was. Thank you for everything and helping us make our dream wedding come true!

I remember when I first came to Crested Hen Farms, I immediately fell in love. The property is absolutely beautiful! From the stunning barn, lush gardens and picturesque round out creek, you couldn’t ask for anything more. Frank, Rich and the whole team were an absolute pleasure to work with. They are so easy to talk to and made us feel like family. We couldn’t have asked for a better venue. Our special day was everything we dreamed of and more! We are forever grateful to Frank, Rich and the whole Crested Hen Farms family for making our day absolutely amazing!Sent on 10/14/2019

Beautiful wedding venue!
My husband and I had a wonderful experience getting married at Crested Hen Farms. Frank and Richie made us feel comfortable and welcome the first time we came to tour the property, and by the end of our wedding planning process they made us feel like family.Sent on 11/02/2019
Everything was very well organized, and we appreciated that they had a barn full of items that we could borrow to decorate for the wedding (although everything is so well taken care of you don’t really need much!). Richie does a beautiful job of maintaining the grounds and planting new and beautiful trees and flowers.
Both were very responsive to my many questions, and were always available if we wanted to stop by and look around for ideas.
We rented the houses across the street as well, and had our bridal party stay there. The homes were beautiful, and it made walking to and from the venue very easy, as well as extending the wedding from one short day to a beautiful weekend experience.
Everyone commented on how absolutely beautiful the venue was, and to be honest, I knew it would look stunning, but every time I go back through the pictures I realize that it exceeded my expectations!
We would definitely recommend this venue if you are looking for a beautiful, peaceful, weekend wedding getaway!
Crested Hen Farms's reply:Thank you so much Jessica for the lovely review. We were very honored to host you guys here. I hope many memories were created here for you and Lavell that will always bring you joy and love.
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.
