Located in Vernon Center, New York, Hayloft on the Arch is an idyllic barn wedding venue. This structure, previously a family-operated dairy farm, has been hosting events for a few years but has already been featured by Harper’s Bazaar, among others. Owners Mike and Alisha Mathalia have hosted hundreds of events, including their own wedding ceremony and reception, and one incredibly intricate triple wedding. The barn features both indoor and outdoor spaces and is highly customizable, making it perfect for intimate, rustic celebrations.
Facilities and Capacity
Hayloft on the Arch’s 18.8-acre site offers couples an abundance of photo opportunities, from a willow tree beside the creek to rolling green hills. There is a large area designated for parking near the site. The patio is over 4,000-square-feet of potential cocktail reception space. Firepits create a welcoming atmosphere, while a portable bar can be erected for a laidback ambiance. A small outbuilding has been converted into an intimate chapel for charming indoor ceremonies. Couples can also say ‘I do’ on the carefully manicured grass in front of 100 of their seated loved ones, should the weather oblige. A golf cart can help transport guests from the ceremony to the barn for the reception. The renovated barn contains a get-ready room with three lit dressing tables for last-minute primping. It’s also home to a 30-feet bar to accommodate those celebratory toasts. The barn can host up to 300 guests.
Hayloft on the Arch is proud to offer complete event coordination, as well as event space. Mike and Alisha are available to set up your chosen decor according to your descriptions, as well as act as a point of contact for vendors. They want to make your wedding day as smooth and seamless as possible, and can also repackage any belongings for safekeeping after the celebration. Chairs and tables are available from the barn. Outside vendors are welcome, but Mike and Alisha can provide couples with a list of their preferred vendors for added convenience. A kitchen is perfect for caterers who want to work on-site.

Amazing CNY Venue
Alisha and her team were FANTASTIC to work with. We are a couple with strong CNY ties living in Brooklyn, and we needed to have a wedding planner and team in place that could help us manage most of the planning remotely. The preferred vendors provided by Hayloft were so easy to work with and created an absolutely perfect day. The biggest thing? Weather was 50/50 and we were supposed to have an outdoor ceremony. Not only did Alisha calm any nerves, but the plan and process to make the call at the last possible second and still have a smooth ceremony was ready to go, and when the weather held, we used their AMAZING outdoor space. Cannot recommend Hayloft enough!Sent on 11/24/2019

The Perfect Venue!
I can’t say enough good things about this venue!Sent on 12/02/2019
The space & property are absolutely beautiful and well-maintained (and versatile in terms of a barn, you can make it look very classy or country depending on your style). We got so many compliments on how beautiful the venue was.
However, that’s not why I so highly recommend it. The owner Alisha is AMAZING at her job. Absolutely amazing. She’s professional, attentive, organized, has great taste, and is just a really nice person - everything you could want in a venue owner.
Despite how many weddings they hold, she always responded to me quickly and made me feel like my wedding was a priority (and I’m sure every one of her brides feels the same). She will do her absolute best to make sure you have the perfect wedding.
Lastly, it was reasonably priced. So many wedding expenses feel outrageously priced, but this was worth every single penny.
Highly highly highly recommend.

I don’t know where to start! Alisha was such a pleasure to work with. I can’t even count the amount of emails I would send her asking questions and she always replied in a timely manor and never made me feel like my questions were stupid. She literally made my wedding visions come to life. She set up most of our decor the night before so when I arrived at 8am for hair and makeup I was able to see most of my decorations in place! She was there all day making sure everything ran smoothly. I told her that I wished she had a buzzer so I could buzz her when I needed her because she was all over making sure everything was in place. If I could do my wedding day all over again, I would chose Hayloft a million times over. Thank you so much for everything!!Sent on 10/08/2019
Hayloft on the Arch Price Rates
We have been doing weddings at the Hayloft for a couple of years now. This is such a great place to have a wedding, easy access from the thruway, but yet far enough away for a wonderful country setting wedding. You will have great views of rolling hills for a great back drop in all of your pictures.
Beautiful venue and great people to work with!
Hayloft on the Arch is one of the most beautiful and unique venues in the area for all types of events. Alisha, Mike, and all their staff do a wonderful job at creating an amazing experience for all their clients and vendors. I absolutely love working with them!!! I always recommend Hayloft on the Arch when ever I have the opportunity. Char
