Barn weddings are here to stay. Of course, people have been having parties in barns since…well, probably since the very first barn was constructed. But they’ve become ubiquitous in the past decade, and they’re not going anywhere. Choosing a barn as your wedding venue doesn’t mean you have to have a fully rustic burlap and lace event. There are as many different styles of barn wedding venues in New York as there are banquet halls. Here are a few barn wedding venues in NY that illustrate the wide selection available to couples:
The Farm at Pond Lily - 65 W. Pond Lily Road, Elizaville NY
As idyllic as they come, this looks like the farm every city child envisions when they read Charlotte’s Web. I classic, well-maintained red barn presides over a placid pond edged with willows. A wooden fence further back offers more photo op possibilities. A fieldstone patio and fire pit round out the venue’s spaces. The couple can also opt to rent the adjoining farmhouse overnight, or for getting ready the day-of.
Handsome Hollow - 5256 County Road 28 Long Eddy NY
Included on Country Living’s list of the top 30 wedding barn venues in the country, this refurbished barn offers historic character, with modern style and convenience. Wedding rentals include use of the farmhouse the night before. A gem in and of itself, the farmhouse is a perfect space for gorgeous getting-ready photos. Guests will enjoy the outdoor patio space and if they’ve brought good shoes, they might venture on to the property’s hiking paths.
The Roxbury Barn & Estate - 667 County Highway 41 Roxbury NY
It was built by a riverboat captain, it’s had famous owners, and it’s even been used as a movie set. Now The Roxbury Barn Estate is a premier wedding venue. It features a ceremony space cleared from the middle of the forest for an ethereal rustic woodland feel. The carriage barn has a built-in bar, and a second floor balcony overlooking the balcony. Adjoining outdoor space can be used for cocktails, or extra dining space.
