Imagine family and friends in a flowered field, on a hillside, in a rustic barn, or beneath a white, streamside wedding tent, gathered in celebration of one of life's most precious moments. A red-tailed hawk soars high overhead, as the gentle waters of the Esopus Creek spill over moss-covered rocks just steps away. The mountains of the Catskill Park rise up all around.
The ceremony, a vision of love and harmony, is entirely the couple's creation, as are many other aspects of this joyous event - all with the gentle, guiding hand of a world-class support team of professionals carefully positioned behind the scenes.
Full Moon Resort, located just one half hour west of Woodstock and about two and half hours from NYC, offers a rustic, yet sophisticated backdrop for one-of-a-kind destination weddings. Idyllic, pastoral and farm-like, with a touch of Woodstock-inspired artistic sensibility, the facility features over one hundred acres of meadows, forests and streams, along with lodging options for your entire group of friends and family - ranging from camping and glamping to simple country inn style guest rooms to exquisite luxury cottages.
The facility hosts lovely outdoor creekside ceremonies and cocktails (complete with covered locations for inclement weather), followed by receptions, for intimate to very large gatherings, at the Moondance Pavilion or at the artistically rustic Wedding Barn. Clients have the option to top off the celebration with later evening socializing at the Catskills-inspired "Roadhouse."
Full Moon's on-premises catering menus offer a full range of possibilities - hot buffet breakfasts and lunches in the Café... down-home country barbeques by the creek (campfire included!)... tantalizing hors d'oeuvres under the maple trees on the lawns... and formal gourmet dinners in the Pavilion or Barn.
The facility is also noted for twenty years of outstanding service in event management and planning, and is a proud recipient of Trip Advisor's "Award of Excellence," Wedding Wire's "Couple's Choice Award," Borrowed and Blue's "Best of B&B: Hudson Valley Weddings," and The Knot:"Best of Weddings (Venues)." Cool. Fun. Highly professional service. The ideal setting for a magical country wedding!
Full weekend-long destination events are a specialty, with guests arriving on Friday to a rustically splendid BBQ with campfires and s'mores... and departing on Sunday after an delicious brunch. Substantial discounts are available for single day Sunday weddings, as well as "off-season" and winter events. The facility operates year round.
