More Than Just a Stunning Wedding Venue
On behalf of Andrea Johnson Floral Design, I give Gilbertsville Farmhouse a 5-star rating and recommend this venue to all! I collaborated with them on styled shoot and not only were the grounds incredibly stunning, but the family and team is so amazing! They were so supportive before, during, and after the shoot. This is more than just a gorgeous wedding venue, this is a family that makes you feel like you're home! I highly recommend Gilberstville Farmhouse!Sent on 10/29/2019

Look no further
Not only is this farm beautiful, but it's packed with so many extras we couldn't find anywhere else. The glamping was a MASSIVE hit and the new farmhouse suites rival any boutique hotel. Sharon and her team were with us every step of the way and are true professionals. Everything was perfectly organized for us and they guided us through the day-of planning so seamlessly, we barely had to think (which is big when you're getting married). You really get a lot for your money here - the only downside is only doing it once! If you want to hear "best wedding ever!" all weekend, this is your spot.Sent on 11/20/2019

OMGF. (Oh my Gilbertsville Farmhouse!)
The word 'serendipity' comes to mind when I think of how we found Gilbertsville Farmhouse. Like many couples who were planning on getting married in 2020, we had to drastically change and cancel our plans - several times - in order to make sure we were being practical, safe and realistic to support love in the time of COVID-19. We knew we did the right thing, but couldn't help but feel let down...the wedding we were so excited for was cancelled and we had no idea how to move forward.Sent on 11/23/2020
Enter Sharon Boustani and the team at Gilbertsville Farmhouse. From the first phone call with Sharon, we knew we were in the very best hands. Whereas many wedding venues we spoke with treated us like a numbered entity with no interest in getting to know who we are, Sharon took the time to get to know us, let us totally vent about how frustrated we were, and came up with a wedding plan that made our original plan seem just so 'average' in comparison.
We weren't able to visit the site ahead of our wedding, but working with Sharon over the phone was so wonderful. She was able to recommend the best local vendors and assured us that she would take care of everything as soon as we arrived. Wedding planning is notorious for being stressful, but when you layer in global pandemic and pulling together an event in a month's time...let's just say that without Sharon's guidance and patience, I am not sure what I would have done!
We were very fortunate to be able to take advantage of the weekend wedding specials Gilbertsville Farmhouse offered and were able to spend our wedding weekend with our closest friends and family. We could not believe how stunning the grounds were - seriously, the pictures are beautiful but it's almost unreal seeing it in person! - and watching our guests' expression as they pulled in was such a thrill. The rooms are beautifully decorated and the entire layout is so functional. Every guest had their own space to relax and unwind, but there were plenty of areas for us to celebrate as a group, too. The ceremony itself was perfectly coordinated. You can tell that the staff absolutely love what they do and take such pride in making sure every moment is perfectly planned and choreographed.
Specifically as it relates to working with Gilbertsville Farmhouse during the COVID-19 pandemic, we were so impressed with the safety protocols and precautions they put into place. Everyone wore a mask, distanced themselves and had plenty of hand sanitizer available. We were extremely comfortable and felt that the staff went above and beyond in making sure everyone was safe.
Before we departed on Sunday morning, our group was already discussing the next event we would be able to celebrate at GF. It's three and a half hours away, but we would gladly make the trip to be able to have another amazing weekend there! Our thanks to Sharon, Katie and the entire staff for making our special day so incredible.
