My fiancé and I visited this Full Moon Resort in August as a potential venue for our wedding. The staff was wonderful, food was excellent and the grounds were beautiful. There were many sleeping options (different cabins) but the majority of them require the a lot of the guests to be comfortable sharing space with one another which we weren’t that crazy about; we have a lot of friends who know one another but it got to the point we’re it would be more than just friend groups sharing the space.Sent on 10/03/2019

Perfect doesn't do it Justice!
Honestly...where do we begin. From beginning to end Full Moon Resort and their staff exceeded our expectations. Full Moon is simply magical...we got married there about 3 weeks ago and are still on cloud nine. Stephanie, Leigh Ann, Tia and everyone else at Full Moon are rock stars. Throughout the entire process they were incredibly helpful, supportive, and most importantly understanding. Planning a wedding is not an easy process, but Full Moon went above and beyond to make sure that on our wedding weekend we were stress free and able to enjoy the picture perfect views/setting. From the welcome BBQ to the day we left, the staff was unbelievable. Upon arriving on Friday, we could already smell the amazing BBQ that was being prepared for that night's festivities. All weekend the food was delicious...major Kudos to Chef Adam and the kitchen crew! We had a weekend that we will never forget, and more importantly our friends and family feel the same way. Our guests mentioned that it was the best wedding they've ever been to...we certainly agree.Sent on 10/09/2019

Have your wedding here!
We got married at Full Moon Resort over Labor Day weekend and it was truly the most magical weekend of our lives. FM is absolutely gorgeous, and you'll save money on flowers because the resort's setting is so naturally beautiful. The weekend itself is so special because every guest can stay onsite, so you really feel like you get to spend time with everyone and not feel rushed. Our guests also said that they appreciated the slower pace of the weekend and it felt like a mini-vacation for them, with really comfortable rooms and delicious (I mean it!) food.Sent on 09/28/2019
From start to finish over the 15 months of planning, FM were the most helpful people possible - Stephanie, the lead coordinator, responds so quickly to email and has great answers to any question, no matter how random, as she has produced so many weddings. The vendor recommendations that she provides are also really helpful because she's worked with nearly everyone in the Hudson Valley / Catskills area, so she knows where to direct you. LeighAnn and Tia from the room reservation team also ensure that what could be quite a fraught process (choosing rooms for all of your guests!) is super easy.
We've been back home and married for a month and the only thing we wish is that we could do it all over again.
Full moon Resort is definitely on my favorite venues to photograph weddings at. Not only is it absolutely beautiful venue to get married, the new renovations are outstanding. The staff is one of the friendliest I have encountered in my 23 years of shooting. The setting is pure magic. Set amongst the hills and streams you feel at one with nature. Personally as a photographer the location couldn't be any better. There are photo opportunities everywhere. If you are looking for a classic rustic themed weekend wedding full of celebrating with friends and family, enjoying top notch food and even a s'mores or two you've found your place.
