    Absolutely stunning location

    Wow, what a STUNNING location. As soon as we walked into the barn we knew no place could compare to The Promise Gardens. Terri takes meticulous care of the gardens and the grounds and has done an incredible amount of work over the past two years to renovate and update. This place is a photographer’s and couple’s dream come true with beautiful little nooks and crannies all over the grounds, gorgeous views of the mountains in the background, and a wonderful canopied walkway complete with twinkling lights. One of our favorite things about The Promise Gardens was the slight separation between dining and dancing areas, allowing those who would prefer to socialize the ability to do so without straining to hear each other but also being close enough to the fun to feel included. We highly recommend The Promise Gardens! Thank you Terri and Danielle!

    Perfection!

    The Promise Gardens of the Adirondacks (formerly Burlap & Beams) was the first and only venue that my then fiancé and I looked at. As soon as we stepped on to the grounds we knew that it was the only place we could see ourselves getting married. The main selling points for us were: the view (oh my, those mountains are gorgeous), the fact that there were multiple barns which gave people the opportunity to spread out, the fire pit, and of course the gorgeous gardens.

    We were originally supposed to get married in 2020 but Covid had other plans. Terri (venue owner) was super responsive and quick to offer alternate dates for 2021 without requiring us to pay 2021 prices, which unfortunately several other vendors did require. Although we were not thrilled to have to postpone our wedding for a year, throughout that time Terri went to town making updates and making the property even more gorgeous. One of my favorite additions that she added was a porch with tables off of the dance floor/bar area. We ended up having our dream wedding in July of this year and it was PERFECT.

    Guests are still raving about how gorgeous it was, and there were countless locations for perfect photos. I wish I could do it all over again there, the venue is so magical!

I cant say enough positive things about Burlap & Beams for your wedding venue. This is a hidden treasure in the heart of the Adirondacks with all the glamorous, rustic enhancements you could imagine. Every season the owner continues to fill the property with creative touches that make this barn one of the best in the capital region. As a wedding planner I know what to expect when I arrive on site with no surprises to how the day will go, which is perfectly. You will not be disappointed with the quality of value of this unique wedding venue!

I have worked with Terri at Burlap and Beams many times. Every time that I visit I am amazed at the new decor and improvements she continues to make to the barns and property. She is always hustling around the day of the wedding making sure the barns and gardens are in tip top shape. She puts her heart into Butlap and Beams. I would recommend Terri and Burlap and Beams to any bride for their wedding!
