It was an absolute dream!
If you're looking for the most beautiful outdoor venue in the state and are interested in working with wonderful people, please stop your search here :)Sent on 06/06/2019
Handsome Hollow was the first venue we looked at and after seeing another venue the same day, we quickly hoped on the phone that afternoon and booked Handsome Hollow.
From the moment you step on the property it's obvious that it's breathtaking. The farmhouse and barn are elegant, yet what we loved about it so much was you feel like you're at home. (Brides, I'm not kidding you when I say this farmhouse is unreal. You are going to want to get your picture taken in every room in this house. Every inch is a perfect photo.) We had our ceremony in the back wooded area and it was an absolute dream. If you chose Handsome Hollow, I would highly recommend you use as much of the property as you can. It is just too beautiful not to.
Aside from the property itself, I could not say enough positive things about Kate, Huck and their entire staff. When I say as a bride I did not stress about one thing related to the venue or how things would run that day, I really mean it. Kate has it all under control and it was a huge relief. Working with the Handsome Hollow staff took so much stress out of the planning and the day. Working with vendors that we connected with were really important to us and Kate and Huck are two of the worlds most lovely individuals. It was an absolute pleasure working with them and I could not imagine getting married any place else. If you choose Handsome Hollow for your venue, please invite me to your wedding so I can go back :)

A Wonderful Experience from the parents' perspective
Handsome Hollow is beautifully and lovingly maintained, and Kate is incredibly helpful and responsive every step of the way. She anticipates every detail- umbrellas, wraps if it's chilly, a plate of hors d'oeuvres arranged just for the bride and groom--all in a confident, calm, sweet way. The whole experience of hosting a rehearsal dinner and reception at Handsome Hollow was exceptional, and many of our friends and family remarked on the unique beauty of the setting.

Ethereal Wedding Venue + Experience
Handsome Hollow is venue that’s beauty is otherworldly and Kate and Huck are so professional, hospitable, and on top of their game, all of your wedding dreams will come true if you choose HH.Sent on 06/16/2019
Handsome Hollow is breathtaking. Up in the Catskills, the location is incredibly remote and the property spans across lush green fields and sprawling woods made up of ferns and flourishing trees. For your ceremony there are 3 “sites” to choose from. There is an area in the woods were we had our ceremony and honestly it felt like a fairytale to be surrounded so intimately by nature and to cross a small stream. Kate provides different arbors for you to choose from and provides all of the benches/chairs for your guests. In addition, Handsome Hollow has a stunning "Ruins" area with an earthly and beautiful stone wall backdrop. The last site is the “meadow”. The barn, where your reception will probably be held, is truly remarkable. It is such a large breathable, airy space that easily acts as a chameleon and adopts your wedding theme/decor so naturally. In the barn there are two (adorable) bathrooms (the tile says “you look good” in one of which makes for a cute photo opp), and an upstairs area, along with a kitchen in the back for your caterer. Off of the barn is a beautiful patio area with large lanterns on tables that Kate provides and tons of room for your bar, guest book/gifts, a cigar bar (if you wish!) and anything else your heart desires. They also light the fire pit for you and provide large adirondack chairs. There are also cafe lights strung up off the barn and trees creating the most dreamy night time setting. Last but not least the farmhouse on the property (sleeps up to 6/3 bedrooms with 3 full beds and 2 baths) is so quaint and charming. It is the most perfect atmosphere (it’s something out of a magazine) to get ready in on the day of with you girls and family. We also held our rehearsal dinner here the night before our wedding, on the front porch, and it was just so cozy and magical. Kate lets her bride and groom stay at the farmhouse from Friday-Sunday so you can get everything ready the day before your wedding, have your rehearsal dinner etc. She provides all linens, towels, basic toiletries etc. Side note - my groom and groomsmen stayed right across the street at an Airbnb which was too perfect and convenient!
Kate and Huck are the dream team. You simply are incapable of having a bad wedding at HH. Kate has an eye for detail and thinks of everything. You are in such good hands!! On the day of your wedding you are her top priority and it shows! Personally, I really, really appreciated her take charge attitude and thoughtfulness - we totally vibed! She was a key player in ensuring a smooth and wonderfully fun wedding! She’s also a boss in that golf cart! Which, by the way, was such a godsend! The golf cart makes it extremely easy to get around the venue in style and it’s just fun! Huck is also amazing. He led our rehearsal dinner and even in my moments of stress he made me laugh and reassured me that on the day of it would be less like herding cats (haha I promise I love my family and friends). He was fantastic at making sure we had everything we needed on Friday! His cool, calm and patient demeanor was very much appreciated with my large and rather loud wedding party. Kate and Huck also provide the best staff on the day of your wedding and the most detailed packet of preferred vendors in the area, recommendations of where to stay, what Airbnb's are the best, tips about the town etc (we highly recommend DJ Jay McElfresh, Jesse Parker from a Note of Elegance for your ceremony music and Main Course Catering). They also coordinate the most lovely tour of Handsome Hollow for your first onsite meeting. They have cookies for you upon arrival and let you take your time asking a million questions. They also have a prop room (with leftover items/decor from previous weddings) that is at your disposal on the day of your wedding. In addition, Kate has the most beautiful vintage table setting options which she will set up for you (alongside your caterer) on the day of your wedding. We used all of her plates and silverware etc. She also provides your table and chairs for your reception and you can rent the most beautiful vintage farm tables if you wish, in addition to an adorable ‘farm style’ sweetheart table. Added bonus - ask to use her “BAR” sign. They are metal light up letters that are so trendy and chic for your bar.
I could go on and on. You get what you pay for with HH and that is a luxury wedding experience in the rolling mountains of the Catskills surrounded by ferns and fireflies. My friends and family will be raving about this for years to come. And so will my husband and I. Thank you HH for giving us the most magical setting to celebrate our love!
