History

Gratitude & Grace was originally built in 1878 and was a working farm for many years.

Ron Riddle, a professional musician, and composer is now the owner of Gratitude & Grace. He purchased the property in 2000 as a family home. Over the years they had many wonderful parties and celebrations and "Gratitude & Grace" became a haven for their close friends and families.

Wanting to share the beauty and magic of this amazing place, Ron decided to offer "Gratitude & Grace" to wedding couples as a weekend retreat. Now people come from all over the world to get married and have the best weekend of their life!

People from all races, faiths and sexual preferences are welcome here!

    The perfect venue & band for our wedding!

    As soon as we visited Gratitude & Grace in Ithaca, NY, we knew we found our wedding venue. We visited a lot of similar venues in the area but Ron and his property made a lasting impression on us. The whole property is filled with natural beauty. Ron and Dani were very helpful and responsive throughout our planning and re-planning process. We originally were supposed to get married in Sept 2020 but due to the pandemic, we postponed to July 2021. Fortunately we were able to keep all our vendors the same! We hired Ron’s band - The Riddler’s - and so thankful we did! Every song was a hit and kept our guests dancing in the barn until late night! All our friends and family keep referring to our wedding as the “concert wedding” so you know they were good! It rained on our wedding day so we got married in the barn but we’re so thankful it worked out that way - it was so romantic and intimate being surrounded by our loved ones on both levels of the barn. I can’t say enough positive things about this venue, Ron, The Riddler’s and our entire wedding weekend. Everything was so FUN, enjoyable, stress-free and beautiful. Wish we could do it again!

    Amazing barn venue

    This is the most amazing venue if you are looking for an outdoor, rustic but elegant and beautiful setting. We loved that our families and we could stay in the gorgeous house on the property, and everyone raved about how beautiful the venue was. Be prepared to do a little more - you have to bring in everything from the outside (tables, chairs, linens, plates, etc) but if you are willing to do the work (a coordinator is recommended!) you will have an amazing and unforgettable wedding weekend!!

    Gratitude and Grace's reply:

    Dear Abi,

    Thank you for your kind words! We absolutely loved having you both and your family and friends. It was definitely a wedding to remember!

    Best,
    Ron

    Magical Venue with Fantastic Host

    I held my wedding at Gratitude and Grace on 10/13/18. We could not have asked for a better outcome. Ron is gracious himself and more then willing to help and accommodate when and where he can. It rained the morning of and Ron was out there helping to spread hey and dry off whatever surfaces he could. He also sent us items we left there which I thought was very nice. All in all it is a beautiful location that is personal and very intimate. It is also convenient being that you stay in the house that is on the same property as the venue where you hold the reception and ceremony. If you are looking for a barn wedding you will not be disappointed with Gratitude and Grace.

    Gratitude and Grace's reply:

    Hi William,

    Thank you for the kind words! It was such a pleasure to have all of your friends and families at Gratitude & Grace! What an awesome group of people!
    Thank you again for choosing us!

    Best,
    Ron
