Inside Scoop

A testimonial sums it up:

The Natural Gardens is a beautiful place, full of magic.

You come through the trees at the top of the hill and walk down the incline to look up and see an expanse of tall green grasses dotted with pink and purple flowers.

The nuptials were in a valley where the voices of the Rabi, Bride, Groom and friends echoed as they blessed each other. Or in the case of this wedding, Blind Melon sang through the trees as tiny humans dressed as bees skipped through the aisle.

A few ponds over is an opening for cocktails and conversation. A lovely place to unwind as the sun sets before entering the barn for the evening.

The barn was stunning, clean, elegant and well lit. The service was beyond stellar and the bartenders were the fastest I have experienced at a wedding.

I would suggest wearing nothing but flat shoes, sandals or flip flops to this venue as the walking paths are gravel and there are so many incredible parts of the property to explore.

The bonfire that the bride and groom provided for the guests after a night of dancing was extremely thoughtful. It added just one more moment for friends and family to soak up the magic of the The Natural Gardens, enjoy each other, toast a marshmallow and listen to the songs and sound of a guitar.

The Scene:
A kind of eden tucked into the Northeast, Catskill Barn Weddings at The Natural Gardens provides couples with a natural upstate NY getaway that is ideal for a whimsical wilderness destination barn wedding. Everything about this location gently whispers peace and serenity. Envision walking through a lush green field as your wedding aisle and saying your vows at the glittering pond-side beneath an archway of tree branches, with the ambient music of tweeting birds and fish leaping from the water creating the soundtrack for one of the most important moments of your life. A nearby stone waterfall and flourishing flowers adds character to this already uniquely beautiful outdoor space!
Design:

Our farm is located in the Western Catskills in Upstate NY about 2 ½ hours north of NYC. The farm is natural and rustic yet dramatic and sophisticated with all the perennial gardens, rock walls and 12 landscaped ponds and waterfalls. You will also get a country farm feel as we grow vegetables, mushrooms, hops, blueberries, grapes and other fruits here on the farm. We also have chickens, ducks, peacocks and other livestock on the farm.

The farm is extremely private as we own both sides of the road and have no neighbors within ½ mile. No other houses can be seen, all you and your guests will see and hear is nature. There are countless areas for photos and your ceremony.
