I had my wedding reception at Birch Hill on March 7, 2015. Bridget and the staff there went completely above and beyond their duties to ensure my husband and I had the time of our lives! Even to this day looking at our pictures, I find something else I didn't even notice until now! I loved working with them and we would recommend Birch Hill to anyone who wants to have their wedding in the Capital District! They also worked with the local hotel to set up transportation so our guests didn't have to worry about transportation the day of!

I'm so happy I decided to have my wedding at Birch Hill! Everything went down flawlessly. The food during cocktail hour and dinner was beyond amazing. The staff at Birch Hill was fabulous to work with, especially Amy who planned every last detail with me and made sure everything went completely perfect on the big day. I cannot rave enough about her and how awesome she is to work with. I also thought Valerie and Candy were awesome and genuinely very sweet people. I had so many guests tell me how beautiful and classy this wedding was and how much they loved the food, especially the boneless wing station :) I would recommend Birch Hill to every Bride!!

Our experience Birch Hill Catering was phenomenal. We had our wedding there this past weekend and we still can not stop talking about it. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone planning a wedding.

The help and guidance we received from our wedding planner Belinda Shumway was invaluable to us. She made sure every detail was attended to and walked us through the entire process, which allowed us to feel confident that our wedding would go smoothly and be exactly what we wanted; and that is exactly what happened.

The combination of her professionalism along with the exceptional staff made our dream wedding a reality. The ceremony was beautifully set and intimate, and the reception was classy and elegant. The food was delicious and there were endless amounts of it. We still have guests telling us how much fun they had and complimented us on how it was tailored perfectly to us.

There is not one thing I would change about my wedding day at Birch Hill. I feel blessed to have had such a perfect wedding day and that would not have been possible without them...so thank you Birch Hill!!!

We're so pleased that we used Birch Hill to provide the drinks for our wedding. We contacted Bridget with a very specific list of beers, wines, cocktails, and whiskeys that we wanted to feature at the reception (and with only a month to go). She delivered on all of our requests and was always a pleasure to work with. The drinks were delicious. The whiskey bar was beautiful. Service was terrific. Valerie, the bartender and operations manager, did an amazing, amazing job putting everything together. Thanks to everyone involved!

We used Birch Hill Catering for our wedding at Pats Barn. Our guest enjoyed all the food, the bistro table was wonderful, so much food for everyone to pick from. We worked with Linda and she was fantastic! She was wonderful to work with, and answered all our questions, responding quickly to all our emails. Everything turned out great, the decor at the barn that Linda helped set up looked beautiful. We couldn't have asked for anything more from her, we are so happy we got paired up with her, she always left us feeling stress free. When working with our other vendors for our wedding, everyone of them also had so many positive things to say about her.
