Rustic Ridge View Farm

$3k - $4k For 100 Guests
Up to 350 guests


Located in Kerhonkson, New York, Rustic Ridge View Farm is a 150-acre working horse farm and wedding venue. This family-owned farm offers spectacular views of the mountains, grazing horses, and even curious guinea hens. The unique venue and farm is flexible and accessible the entire weekend, from Friday to Sunday, for your wedding events. You and your guests can enjoy the privacy and freedom while celebrating your nuptials together. Other than the ceremony and reception, couples can host their rehearsal dinner and post-wedding brunch on the farm too.

Facilities and Capacity

Rustic Ridge View Farm accommodates up to 500 people on the property. You can hold your ceremony outside among the beautiful views and then move under the covered, weather-proof pavilion for the reception. The massive pavilion boasts tall ceilings with exposed wooden planks to give it more of a rustic feel. Glowing paper lanterns hang from the ceiling softening the space. You may choose to enter the wedding ceremony in a horse-drawn carriage or tractor-drawn hay wagon. There are get-ready rooms available on-site for convenience, and the farm is wheelchair accessible. On the day of the wedding, friendly parking staff will be on-hand to help you and your guests.

Services Offered

Rustic Ridge has an event coordinator ready to work with you during the planning of your big day. The event coordinator will help with everything from the logistics of the wedding, to working with other vendors, down to the landscaping and flowers on the farm. There are handmade wooden farm tables and ceremony benches available to use. The farm encourages you to work with outside vendors for catering. There are bartenders at Rustic Ridge that can serve a variety of beverage options to you and your guests during an open or limited bar. They do provide barware, china, flatware, glassware, and linens to use. Because you have access to the farm before the big day, you can set up the space as you wish, with the help of the Rustic Ridge staff.


The farm is located in the Hudson Valley, just west of scenic New Paltz and an hour and a half outside New York City. There are a number of lodging and hotels close by for you and your guests. Adventurous guests can bring a tent and camp out on the property under the stars.

    Wedding venue of my dreams!

    Wedding venue of my dreams!

    I came across Rustic Ridge View Farm through a google search and immediately scheduled a viewing. Upon meeting the owner Wally (during a snowstorm and still allowed us to view his property) we knew, without a moment of hesitation, that we found the perfect place to marry.

    Wally is a gem of human, host, person, guide - you name it! Day of the wedding a laundry list of incidents occurred, including lipstick stains on the front of my dress seconds before walking down the aisle. Wally quickly raced home in his golf cart and returned with all sorts of products until the stains were nearly invisible. Berry stains on a white dress! To say I was left speechless is an understatement.

    In addition to this, Wally was incredibly attentive to all of our needs throughout the entire weekend. From setting up on Friday, driving guests around the farm on Saturday, and providing my husband and me with tools to take everything apart on Sunday. Due to the intense heat and only my husband and I at the farm packing up, we weren't able to finish before sunset. Wally didn't have a problem with us returning on Monday to finish up and even invited us over for food, beer and to freshen up with a swim in his pool. He offered us his pool and fed us!! Wally, we adore you!!

    I must also mention, that on Sunday night Wally generously offered us his Airbnb that's located on the farm, free of cost. We had left our belongings at the place we were staying so we didn't take him up on the offer but it was completely selfless and greatly appreciated.

    If you haven't figured it out by now, Wally is genuinely the kindest, warmest person and I'm truly so indebted to him for his hospitality and kind demeanor towards my wedding guests. Several relatives asked who were the guys riding in the golf carts (Jack and Wally) because they were both so pleasant and eager to assist - including offering to bring me a margarita as I waited in the bathroom line!

    I could go on forever but really, go find out for yourself! If you're lucky, there will be availability!

    Wally, thank you so much for saving me a dance regardless of your sprained ankle! You are so sweet and I look forward to booking one of your Airbnbs in the near future! Jack, thank you for being such a huge help and pleasant to be around!

    P.S. Check out the pics of the venue and Wally and me! ;)

    Best venue EVER!!!

    Rustic Ridge View Farm was the venue of our dreams. The views are breathtaking, and the pavilion accommodated our large wedding party. Wally was the absolute BEST to work with, and we know we will have a friend for life in him! He helped us with every step along the way. His staff helped the day run smoothly, and several guests approached us to tell us how they'd never been to such a stunning wedding before! Would recommend this venue to anyone. If you're concerned about COVID, this venue is entirely outdoors and made us feel assured. 10/10!!!!

    Amazing venue!

    Rustic Ridge View Farm was an absolutely amazing place for our wedding. The view from the hill during our ceremony was stunning and the huge rustic pavilion for our reception was exactly what we envisioned. Wally was a joy to work with from start to finish, answering all of our questions and giving us advice for over a year while we were in planning mode. Our wedding photos in the pine forest on the property and on the hill were magical. We even managed to capture some impromptu photos with a horse staying on the farm! Our guests loved the event and we couldn’t have chosen a better spot to celebrate.
