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.
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.

Amazing experience so far!
We haven't had our wedding at RRVF yet, but from the moment we decided it was the place we wanted to get married, the entire process has been so easy and fun! Once we saw RRVF, we knew we had to get married on the beautiful farm. Not only were we in awe of the green mountains, perfectly groomed and well-kept property, and the incredible pavilion that will hold our reception, but the fact that we have the flexibility to make our wedding exactly what we want it to be is truly the best part. The property owner, Wally, has been extremely responsive and easy to work with, from scheduling tours of the property, to handling the contracts, to suggesting our amazing wedding planner, Lauren Pasternak (LP events). Wally made handcrafted wood benches and farm tables that are included in the contract that we are so excited to use. We were even able to have our rehearsal dinner on the farm the night before the wedding, which is a really special touch. We can't wait to have our wedding at this incredible place, surrounded by our favorite people in the world, in 3 weeks!Sent on 06/21/2019

The best day
Rustic Ridge View Farm is the most magical place. Wally is attentive, flexible, responsive, and honest! We are over the moon about about the quality of our reception, best party, best venue, best day, best accommodations in the Love Shaq’. Our guests were able to come early to set up camp. Thank you Wally for making our day extra special.Sent on 06/17/2019

It’s hard to say the best part of Rustic Ridge. The location is as beautiful as could be. Many of our guests said the location was a perfect location for a wedding. The pavilion, the hilltop and the views in every direction were stunning. But Helen and Wally were just so helpful and so wonderful to work with. They were dependable, responsive, amazing problem solvers, flexible and many other things. We got the Silver package and it was exactly what we needed. As with any wedding we had fire drills come up but they all got handled with Helen and Wally’s help.Sent on 10/09/2017
Thank you Helen and Wally. You made the weekend absolutely amazing and unforgettable.
