I know my friends and family would follow me anywhere but leading up to our big day I was asked repeatedly, in various forms of niceties, "why are you making us travel so far?" To which I would simply reply, "You'll see." I guarantee that your breathe will be taken away as soon as you step foot on Gilbertsville Farmhouse's property, as it was for all of my guests this past weekend. To say that the grounds are stunning is a severe understatement.
But Gilbertsville is so much more than a beautiful location, the people who own and work there truly make this venue the special place that it is. No request was too small or too grand, they worked hard to make our special day something more than we could have ever dreamed. For instance, I had wanted sunflowers at the rehearsal dinner to decorate the tables. You know when a bride gets a vision stuck in her head and suddenly that is the most important detail in the world ( hey, we all have our non-stellar moments)...well, they weren't going to make the four-hour drive from our home to the venue and where is a farm stand when you need one?! Katie, not only thought of a friend of hers who had sunflowers but insisted that she run and pick them up for us so that we didn't get lost in the hills the day before our wedding. That is just one small instance where the Gilbertsville family went above and beyond the call of duty and left a lasting impression on our hearts.
We didn't want a cookie-cutter wedding, we wanted an experience for ourselves and all of our guests and that is exactly what we received. There is no scorecard or rating that could accurately describe the fabulousness that is Gilbertsville. You just have to go and experience it for yourself. We could not imagine a better way to start off the greatest adventure of our lives.

What a Wonderful Wedding!
From the very beginning, Sharon and her family were a dream to work with. We booked them sight unseen, and ended up going with mostly vendors off of their recommended list.
Everything leading up to our wedding weekend was perfect - she answered all our questions, helped us schedule a visit, and was incredibly responsive to any additional concerns we had as the date got closer.
Our wedding weekend was exactly what we had hoped it would be, and that wouldn't have been the case without Sharon, her family and her amazing team. If you're looking to get married in central New York at a rustic venue with sleeping onsite, you would be remiss not to go with Gilbertsville Farmhouse.

Dream come true!!!
Words can’t describe our experience with Gilbertsville Farmhouse. Our friends and family were stunned, and we were ecstatic the entire time. We heard the words “best wedding ever” at least 20 times, and it was the truth. From start to finish, the staff here had our best interest in mind. Katie took the lead on our weekend, and she is a ROCKSTAR. She stayed cool, calm and collected, and met our every need. That type of presence is necessary on a day like that. The glamping site left our guests in awe, and the venue itself speaks for itself. 30 degree temperatures and pouring rain couldn’t even stop this weekend from being TOTALLY PERFECT! We Love you guys!!!
Gilbertsville Farm house is not only a beautifully unique and secluded venue for anyone to get married at but their staff is wonderfully professional and easy to work with. It has been a pleasure to be a planner there and I would recommend them to anyone seeking a barn venue in upstate NY.
We LOVE The GILBERTSVILLE FARMHOUSE, if you are looking for amazing venue with a view look no further! The ambiance, food Sharon and staff are amazing.
Gilbertsville Farmhouse is a gorgeous destination wedding venue with amazing views - the owner's are sure to treat you like family and you will have an incredible experience!
