    Our Wedding Day at Hunter was Perfect!

    Our experience hosting our wedding at Hunter Mountain was indescribable and amazing! We met Debbie and booked Hunter Mountain as our venue nearly two years before our actual wedding day, and throughout all of that time, she was incredibly responsive, patient with us (answering our many(!) questions), and thorough. Our wedding planning process was made much smoother because of her! Then when we met Josephine, who was our week/day of coordinator, we knew we right away that we were in great hands! Together, Josephine and Debbie (and the entire team at Hunter Mountain) made our wedding a day that we know that we will never forget! It went so smoothly, and was truly more than we ever could have hoped. Thank you to the entire Hunter Mountain team for literally the best start to our married lives! We loved every second of it!

    Best Wedding Ever!

    I didn't view the site prior to the wedding because I live on the West Coast. Debbie made planning from afar so easy. She responds quickly and is more accommodating than she should be. My day-of coordinator, Josephine is beyond amazing. Took all the work of last minute details and made everyone and everything come together so perfectly. She even did all the worrying for me when we had a major flower issue. Can't thank you gals enough! Oh! And can't forget Chuck for shuttling my guests around with a smile. :)

    The best venue ever!

    Hunter is hands-down the MOST incredible wedding venue!!! Our wedding weekend was absolutely perfect -- it totally surpassed our wildest dreams!!! It was by far the best weekend of our lives -- and it was all with HUGE THANKS to the amazing team at Hunter and the spectacular, beautiful venue itself!!! Our guests still cannot stop telling us that our wedding was the best one that they’ve ever attended!!! We are soooo grateful for everyone at Hunter!!! Reasons why Hunter is a cut above the rest: (1) THE PEOPLE… The staff is incredibly competent, attentive, and personable. Debbie Reilly is truly exceptional to work with. I had so many questions throughout the year leading up to the wedding (she and I communicated almost every day because of that!) -- and Debbie ALWAYS answered promptly, thoroughly, thoughtfully, and with a positive attitude. She was always patient and kind, creative and flexible, and went far above and beyond for us. Debbie kept me sane throughout the process and it gave me so much comfort and confidence knowing we were in her hands. We had a large wedding of ~220 people, several events throughout the weekend (e.g., a unique talent-show type of rehearsal dinner on Fri night, farewell brunch on Sun, a special small ceremony on Fri in addition to the bigger one on Sat, getting ready time, after-party with s’mores, etc.)...and Debbie helped us plan and think through all of the details. I am beyond grateful to Debbie for handling all of my questions (she never missed a single question!) and doing it all with grace. Debbie has a wealth of knowledge and experience, and she delivers it all with a smile!! On the wedding weekend itself, Josephine Michaud was our main coordinator and go-to, and she was totally incredible too! Josephine helped make sure that our entire vision for our wedding weekend (that we’d planned meticulously with Debbie) was fully implemented and that everything ran smoothly. She was extremely helpful, supportive, calm, patient, and positive. I loved Josephine’s can-do attitude and uplifting spirit! She was also very organized, which was important given our planned details. David Kukle was also totally fabulous!! Throughout the planning process, David sometimes weighed in on some of our questions/approaches, and was very thoughtful about the way things could work. During the wedding weekend itself, David went above and beyond (e.g., took us to the summit with our photographer for an extra photoshoot). Along with Josephine and Debbie, David made sure to follow through on all of the details that I had mapped out, and did it all happily. On our wedding day, the weather was suboptimal but we still did the ceremony at the summit, which actually still turned out to be INCREDIBLE and our guests LOVED it and had sooo much fun with it (they smiled, *sang*, and laughed in their ponchos and umbrellas!). It was totally memorable for everyone and we even got a RAINBOW during our ceremony! But I was very nervous due to the weather...and I’ll never forget how, right before we started the ceremony, David came over to me with a huge smile on his face, made some quick jokes and reassured us that the ceremony would still be amazing. He gave me the positive boost of energy that I needed in that moment, and I am so grateful for it. It will forever be a wonderful memory that I have from our wedding. And Chef Fabrice was also a pleasure to work with! We had so much fun at the tasting and he really met our needs. (See “food” section below for more.) Debbie, Josephine, David, and Fabrice worked seamlessly together to ensure that our weekend was a huge success. They also worked really well with our vendors which made our lives so much easier. And everyone else who we met at Hunter was so nice and helpful all weekend. (2) THE VENUE SETUP/LAYOUT… Hunter has a *magical* setup in which the reception, ceremony, lodging, rehearsal dinner, and after-party are all located on the same property -- so all of our events were walking distance from each other. That made everything super easy for our guests and it was sooo fun to have everyone in the same vicinity all weekend long. Togetherness and community was very important to us for our wedding weekend, and we were able to achieve that through Hunter. It’s very rare to find a venue that has all of these things AND is super nice, clean, beautiful, and runs smoothly...Hunter really has it all!!! The grounds are STUNNING. Everyone felt so wonderful being in such beautiful natural surroundings, and our photos are fabulous! All of our guests stayed at the Kaatskill Mountain Club hotel which was such a wonderful situation. We kept seeing our guests throughout the weekend, we had time to catch up with them, old friends reconnected, and that setup just made our hearts so full. We had so much fun hanging out with friends by the pool/hot tub, getting breakfast at Van Winkle’s, bumping into our guests in the hallways, catching up in the lobby area, etc. The hotel staff (e.g., Heather Bragg) were very accommodating especially given our large number of guests. They worked tirelessly to make sure everything worked smoothly and we are so thankful. And beyond Hunter, the surrounding town is adorable with great food and hikes, and our friends loved exploring it! (3) THE MEMORIES & THE EXPERIENCE… We had the most AWESOME time taking the chairlift to and from our ceremony, and so did all of our guests (young and old!). The ceremony was stunning and everyone told us that they will never forget our wedding because it was so fun and unique. We loved waving at our guests as they descended down the mountain after the ceremony in the chairlift. That will forever be one of our favorite memories from the weekend. The Copper Tree is also a fantastic reception area because it’s so spacious, the bar is super fun, and the hanging string lights with drapery give an elegant and ethereal feel. We had 220+ guests and everyone fit super comfortably in the Copper Tree. It was perfect. And Van Winkle’s is a fabulous location for the farewell brunch/breakfast and the after party which we did with s’mores around the fire pit on the patio. It had everything we could have ever wanted or needed! Hunter has such a wonderfully cozy vibe and facilitates exuberant fun!!! (4) THE FOOD… Our guests (including foodies and/or very picky & critical of food) cannot stop praising the food from the reception!!! Several people have told us that they have never had such delicious food at a wedding, and can’t believe how it was possible for the Hunter team to make such delicious steak for 220+ people! Usually cooking for such a large number of people compromises the food quality...but that didn’t happen at Hunter! And for Friday night rehearsal dinner, we did the Casual Italian Buffet which was delicious...as well as various platters like cheese and crudite for getting ready...and everything was absolutely delicious! Big kudos to Chef Fabrice and his team!!! (5) IN SUMMARY… We cannot thank Debbie, Josephine, David, and the rest of the Hunter team enough for all of their diligent help and support throughout the year-long planning process and during the wedding weekend itself!!!! THEY ARE THE BEST!!!!! We cannot recommend Hunter as a venue enough!!!! We miss it soooo much already!!! We have immense gratitude for all that the Hunter folks did for us and how they made our wedding weekend better than we could have ever dreamed!!!!
