Financial Risk! BEWARE! I absolutely loved Catlin Gardens, as well as the staff. My fiance and I booked our wedding in 2012 for May 2014 and couldn't have been happier. Until the following article was published 6/21/13 in our local newspaper the Times Herald-Record: http://www.recordonline.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20130621/BIZ/306210378
Catlin Gardens is financially unstable, is in significant debt, and the foreclosure process has been started. We had already paid more than half of our reception. When we inquired with concern about the security of our date and planned wedding, we were told that our date of 5/30/14 could no longer be guaranteed. When we pressed the owners for a refund, they began avoiding us and then refusing our request. We are currently taking legal action. This is our savings and we are now attempting to plan a wedding elsewhere. This has taken the excitement and joy out of wedding planning. Please be careful.

Catlin Gardens responded with the following comments:

We are happy to hear that you found Catlin Gardens so enchanting and chose it for your wedding. Unfortunately, the Times Herald Record did publish an article about us that painted a pretty dismal picture. The truth of the matter is that we were in the process of restructuring and refinancing with a new bank at the time of the article's publication. Sadly, things were blown grossly out of proportion by the media. Our business is alive and well and will continue ensure all our brides have the weddings of their dreams.

I used to pass Catlin Gardens on my way to Middletown as a child and always wanted to have my wedding in the beautiful "castle." When I got engaged, I assumed that they would be too expensive but was surprised when I found that their prices were similar to those in my area (Sussex County, NJ). I visited many places, but once I stepped foot in the beautiful gardens, I was sold. Stephanie was incredibly accommodating, she let my family members and me take several tours and answered emails promptly. On the day of, my guests were AMAZED. They thought the place was gorgeous and kept saying it was "just like heaven." The gardens are stunning, my photographer loved having so many different locations to take pictures. My MC, Corey was also fantastic. My in-laws said they were never without a drink in their hand, they never even had to go to the bar. He kept my drinks full as well, made sure I had all the cocktail hour food I wanted, and even retrieved my flip-flops when my feet were sore. We are incredibly happy with our decision to have our reception at Catlin Gardens.

What an absolutely beautiful wedding. Catlin Gardens is like a fairy tale come true. The grounds are beautiful. The service was great. We had the rehearsal dinner at Jack's Pub, wonderful! Stayed overnight at the hotel, also so very nice. I can go on and on. The staff, the food, the service, the décor, the gardens, EVERYTHING was just PERFECT.

The venue is absolutely gorgeous! Stephanie and James are amazing to work with! They listened to every detail and made my wedding perfect. I rated it 4.8 out of 5 solely because the matre de that worked with us at the wedding and rehearsal did not seem to listen to what I had to say and there were a few minor details that were messed up on the wedding day as a result of this. Overall everything was beautiful and I highly recommend this venue. Not only is it gorgeous, but the majority of the people who work there genuinely care about making your wedding day perfect! I don't think I waited more than twelve hours for a response, whenever I had a question, day, night or weekend! We also did our rehearsal dinner at jacks pub. Amazing! Erin was great and super easy to work with! The food was delicious! Overall, this venue is by far the best in the Hudson valley! I highly recommend them!

I worked with Stephanie and James during the planning stages. Both of them were extremely helpful and accommodating. During the wedding, Sarah was my maitre'd and she went above and beyond to make our night perfect. She made sure we had food and water throughout the evening, made sure my husband and I along with our guests and vendors knew what was supposed to happen and when, and just made sure everything flowed seamlessly throughout the whole day. The team at Catlin Gardens made my wedding day the best possible wedding I could have ever asked for!

After my husband and I visited a venue that was less than anything we pictured for our special day, Catlin Gardens was next on our list. We, like many couples, were on a tight budget, and after walking into the hotel part we got discouraged because we thought there was no way we could afford to have our wedding here. It was just too beautiful to be in our price range. Long story short, Stephanie worked with us and helped us get everything that we wanted. She was very accommodating, and the whole process leading up to the big day was rather flawless. The day of was the best day of my life. I didn't have to worry about whether or not our centerpieces were placed the way we wanted, that the rose pedals were out, unity candle in place, name cards and picture frames how we envisioned, etc. All of the service staff was there to make sure we got everything that we wanted. James, the banquet manager was very easy to work with and made sure everything was set up perfectly. Jaime, our matre'd was FABULOUS!!!! Anything that we needed he made sure happened. He communicated with the DJ's, musicians, and photographers the whole night. If we needed something from the "emergency kit" he was running upstairs to get it for us. The girls took golf carts down to the ceremony site so that our dresses wouldn't be ruined and the gardens were absolutely stunning! The receptionist Danielle was very helpful in arranging all of our guests' stays. Everything was perfect and more than we ever could have expected.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this place. My now-husband and I had visited several New York venues prior to this one, but as soon as I saw the gardens at Catlin - we both fell in love! Who knew that such a magical garden hid behind the manor? We booked our wedding with Stephanie, who was a great person to deal with. In fact, the entire staff (especially James and Jamie) over at Catlin Gardens treated us like family. On the day of the wedding, Jamie, our maitre d, made sure that we were fed and happy. He made sure the evening went smoothly. I can't gush over how much I love this place. We just saw our wedding photos recently and every nook and cranny of Catlin is captured beautifully in photographs. I would HIGHLY recommend this venue for any special event!

My husband and I had the best day of our lives at Catlin Gardens. From the first phone call made after we were engaged until we waved goodbye from the parking lot after we had been married Catlin Gardens was a dream come true. Stephanie, James, Shanna and the entire staff couldn't have been more accommodating. We were lucky enough that another wedding wasn't planned for the afternoon before our wedding, so we had the entire grounds to our wedding party. We took over the place! Our rehearsal dinner in the Gratto was nothing short of amazing the night before. Then we stayed in the gorgeous hotel rooms after hanging out in Jacks Pub for awhile. We woke up the next day, headed for the church. We got back and watched everyone's smiles as the entered Catlin Gardens. The hotel rooms are romantic and spacious. Jack's Pub is so much fun for the after party. The gardens are a perfect location for an outdoor cocktail hour and even better for photos. The reception room is the perfect size for 180-200 people. We had everyone on the dance floor the entire night. The reception room overlooks the gardens which just adds to the beauty. Our maitre' d Jamie was remarkable, we even got to witness a hot air balloon cruising over our cocktail hour. Every detail was covered, even things we wouldn't of thought of. We had a sparkler exit to Jack's Pub and it was the perfect finale to the perfect wedding. Again we can not thank the staff at Catlin's enough, and we would recommend Catlin Gardens to anyone we have ever met, we have already! Best Wedding Ever! Best, Jennifer & Craig

We could not have asked for anything more from Catlin Gardens, we truly had our dream wedding! Everything ran smoothly from the time we booked to the wedding weekend. Stephanie, James, Jamie, Erin, and the entire Catlin Garedens staff were a pleasure to work with. Everything I asked for and any ideas I had came together perfectly with their help.

One of our favorite things with Catlin was the abiltiy to have everything done right on site. We started our weekend with our rehearsal in the beautiful grotto room which was the perfect intimate and unique setting. Our bridal party stayed at the Inn and got ready there on the wedding day. The cocktail hour and reception were truly breathtaking and guests commented on the beauty of the Catlin constantly, we had the perfect evening dancing and celebrating. We headed to Jack's Pub for our after party and stayed at the Inn. The morning after we had a farewell breakfast in the Austin Room. Everything was just as we had hoped!

Thank you Catlin for making our wedding unforgettable and the perfect celebration!

Catlin Gardens is by far one of the prettiest venues we encountered on our venue search. We were immediately sold the day we viewed it. Our wedding day was perfect; the staff was great and very helpful to accommodate anything. They gave us plenty of drinks while we did our photos before the ceremony and helped keep us on time. Jaymie was incredible to say the least. We have no complaints about anything on our wedding day. The food was great and all the liquor/beer is top shelf what more can you ask for! We had an after party at Jacks Pub with food and Karaoke and it was perfect. Our guests could not stop talking about how beautiful the venue was and how nice all of the staff is. Thank you so much for everything and our pictures turned out amazing!!!!!!

Catlin Gardens is a magical place. The gardens themselves rival Eden, their beauty is unsurpassed. The Stack’s do a superlative job at coordinating every detail.

Catlin Gardens, is a place that defines beauty, encompasses your sense of wonder, and provides a canvas for any bride to build upon. The gardens create a perfect backdrop, you simply need to add your vision.

My first experience at Catlin Gardens was as a guest - some 12 years ago. Even then it was beautiful, located on a country road, around a hidden turn, next to a little barn.

Today, this is the place of my wedding, one that I could adorn with countless compliments - but the injustice would be if I didn't tell you to go experience it for yourself. They set themselves apart in terms of service and were easy to work with. Our personal needs were always a priority and in providing direction, they were a constant guide - Jamie, James, and Stephanie especially. If your wondering about the food, you shouldn't - try a tasting -we did two. Thank you again to Catlin Gardens for making our experience so memorable.

Catlin Garden did a wonderful job at our wedding! We got married on June 14, 2013. We booked about two years in advance and anytime we had a question from that time up to the wedding they answered back with no problem! They are willing to work with you to make sure that your dream wedding happens. The staff was as nice as anyone could be and it rained at my wedding! We ended up having the most beautiful pictures in the garden even with the rain! And they quickly moved everything around to have the ceremony inside and it was just as beautiful and still overlooked the garden. The guest at my wedding could not stop talking about how beautiful the place was and how delicious the food was! Stephanie, James and Sarah made the wedding go by with absolutely no stress! I would do another event there in a heart beat!

The guest at my wedding could not stop talking about how beautiful the place was and how delicious the food was! Stephanie, James and Sarah made the wedding go by with absolutely no stress! I would do another event there in a heart beat! Read less

My son's wedding was Feb 8th 2013 .It was a Friday evening and it was the biggest snow storm to hit the NY area in 2 years We had 125 guests expected and we were worry about how they were all going to get there with all the snow.We had guests coming from Florida, Ct and Ireland.The owner of Catlin Gardens called us and offer us a good rate for Thursday night so some people could come before the storm and of course everyone stayed Friday night after the wedding .Jacks Pub in the hotel stayed open late after the wedding the accommodate our guests.The staff at Catlin Gardens did a fabulous job .They were friendly and went the extra mile to make sure everyone had a great time.I have been to Catlin Gardens in the past for other events and have never been disappointed.I would recommend Catlin Gardens for your wedding or any other event . The hotel rooms are beautiful and very clean. Thank you to all the staff for make our wedding great.

Our Wedding could not have been more perfect at Catlin Gardens. I would highly recommend this venue for anyone that wants a picturesque place to get married. The grounds at Catlin Gardens are absolutely beautiful. The help that I received from all the staff members was amazing. All the guests as they arrived asked "How did we find this place?" Anyone that is looking to have a wedding outside and experience the beauty of these gardens and the excellent staff please feel free to contact me!

We had the rehersal diner in Jack's Pub. Wedding ceremony was in the gardens. Cocktail hour was also in the gardens. All day/night long and for days afterward guests continuously raved about the beauty of all the facilities and the courteous and attentive staff. As father of the bride I felt my daughter was a prices and we were in a fairy tale setting. It was THAT beautiful. From first inquiry contact to check out at the Inn every employee was so helpful, kind and pleasurable to deal with. An outstanding feature is The Inn. After the reception a stroll to the Inn puts you in a luxurious room. An outstanding continental breakfast is provided. The food was exquisite at the rehersal diner the cocktail hour and the receiption. Caitlyn Gardens is THE BEST facility for a wedding.

We were beyond thrilled with our choice in Catlin Gardens as a reception location. The entire staff was extremely helpful, going above and beyond to accommodate our and our guest's requests. James and Jamie made us feel completely taken care of and truly cared about. The grounds and manor house were beautiful, well-kept and distinct. Being not from the area, we had many out of town guests and booked the entire Inn for the night after which created a fun "destination" like feel to the wedding and gave us a great spot for the after party in Jack's Pub. We also had the rehearsal dinner downstairs in the brand new Grotto room which was intimate and different. All in all we could not have imagined a better place to have our wedding and will always be able to return to the Inn to reminisce about our amazing day there. Highly highly recommend!

There aren't words to describe how thankful Tom and I are to Stephanie Stack and the staff at Catlin Gardens. We could never have imagined a more perfect wedding day. The gardens were incredible, the room was gorgeous, the food was tremendous and the attention to detail was spot on. Our bridal party, along with Tom and I, felt like royalty. From the beautiful private bridal suite, to the food and drinks that were brought to us without asking, it was truly magical. Our guests continue to call us and comment that it was one of the nicest weddings they have ever been to. Thank you again for making all of our wedding day dreams come true. I would definitely recommend this venue for others to have their wedding at!!

We had a beautiful ceremony in the manor house & our reception was lovely. Our coordinator, James, was absolutely amazing - attentive, detail oriented & great to work with. He made us feel very comfortable & calm & he responds super fast to emails. Our maitre’d Jamie was terrific. He made sure that we knew what was going to happen before it did, made sure we ate & enjoyed our cocktail hour & our reception. The food was amazing – we got the paramount package & were very happy. Stephanie also took a lot of time with us without making us feel rushed. There were 2 places where issues arose the hotel & our actual wedding day. Although we booked about 36 of the 44 rooms at the hotel, just days before the wedding, hotel staff told us that the rate we had gotten was unheard of & that the hotel was actually losing money on us - such an inappropriate thing to say. Then, even though they’d had a year to tell me, less than 48 hours before the wedding, the hotel said that they needed liability insurance for the hair and makeup people or they wouldn’t let them in the day of the wedding. On our wedding day, the hotel called saying that she would not let the hair & makeup people & my bridesmaids into my room unless I emailed her written permission. When my girls and I arrived we had to go to the front desk to ask for luggage carts, & then we LOADED THEM OURSELVES while the front desk people watched us! We pushed the luggage carts up to our rooms ourselves! We had rain & had to take photos in the lobby. There were 20 of us in the lobby taking photos. There was no AC & we were all dressed up & sweating. No one thought to open any doors, brought in fans & my bridesmaids had to go up to the hotel staff who were doing nothing to ask for ice water for people. Guests came into the hotel & no one directed them where to go. After photos the best man had to find someone to get all of us a room to wait in before the ceremony. We would definitely recommend CG - just not the hotel.

TRUE STORY- I was in high school when I first heard a radio commercial for Catlin Gardens. It sounded amazing and wished that one day I would be a bride getting married at this beautiful venue. Well, 12 years later, I got my wish and was married at the most stunning place I have ever seen. Not only are the grounds absolutely breathtaking, but the staff is so friendly and helpful! The entire planning process was so easy and I truly felt like I was surrounded by family the entire time. I recently heard this story from one of my guests and I must share it with you. During our reception dinner, my step daughter asked for applesauce. The kitchen was out of this item, so one of the staff members drove to the local store to buy applesauce for her. I could not believe how accommodating the entire Catlin Gardens staff is. They went out of their way to make sure everything went smooth on our day. Many people will say how not everything can go perfect on your wedding day. Well, mine was very close to perfection. The only hiccup was that it poured all morning and afternoon. I desperately wanted the ceremony in the gardens and James and Jaime made that happen. They even held umbrellas while walking our guest down to the ceremony. During cocktail hour and the reception, I noticed how place cards were set up and how the tables were arranged and that every detail I wanted was executed flawlessly. The food was AMAZING and Jaime made sure we never had an empty glass . The after party was at Jack’s Pub located in the Catlin Gardens Inn. We had so much fun with our friends and family. The bartender was fun and on point the whole night into early morning! To top off an amazing party and after party, we stayed in a gorgeous suite. I truly enjoyed everything about this venue and I have received (and am still receiving) emails, texts, and phone calls, about how beautiful our wedding was and how breathtaking Catlin Gardens is. If you want an unforgettable wedding, this is your place!

Catlin Gardens is one of the most beautiful, and fairytale wedding venues around. They have an incredible reception hall, inn on site, and breathtaking gardens for their ceremony site. They even have a pub in the inn, and we had lunch there each time. We visited several times before our wedding date, and did not want to leave!! The gardens have fountains, statues, singing birds, a huge lily pond, and flowers everywhere. The reception hall (The Manor House) is a victorian styled building that is just gorgeous. We actually had a couple of small bumps in the road when planning our wedding, but it worked out just fine in the end. We worked with several salespeople, as the staff was going through a period of high turnover. We finally ended up with one of the business owners, and from there, plans went more smoothly.

The big day went perfectly. Our Maitre'd Jaime, was excellent, and so much fun. He ran the entire day for us, and did an incredible job. It was a very hot day, and we were served cold water, food, and champagne as soon as we exited the ceremony, just as our guests were served. The reception was excellent as well. We did a standard food package, and it was just enough. The food was delicious, including our wedding cake (provided in the package). I would recommend doing the standard package (Manor Package) with their choices provided. It was a more expensive venue, so we saved where we could. We negotiated for some add ons, which I highly recommend doing. (Free rooms at the Inn, Free bridal suite for 2 nights, champagne upon arrival, etc)

In hindsight, we made the best decision. The day couldn't have been more perfect, and even our guests were wowed every second of the way. I highly recommend Catlin Gardens. The place is amazing, food is great, the inn was so convenient, and the staff was warm and friendly. You couldn't ask for a better wedding venue. We even went to the pub after the wedding and held a breakfast there the next day. We loved it.

It's how to describe how perfect the day was! The Gardens are gorgeous, the lily pond is breathtaking with the lillies blooming and the ambiance of the place is like a fairy tale! Thanks to a great and professional staff everything went smoothly, and I have to say I had my doubts about the maitre D, well it turns out we really needed him, Jamie was great!! James was super helpful and accomodating as well, Stephanie was a pleasure to deal with as well. Thank you to everyone at Catlin gardens who made our wedding day an unforgettable event for everyone who attended it. The bakery who made the cake did an outstanding job, not only it was beautiful, but tasty too. Overall i would strongly recommend the venue to everyone. Our DJ was Larry Mulligan from Much music - also a local vendor who did a great job with the introductions and hard to pronounce eastern european names. :) If you don't mind the drive up to the place, which is totally worth it by the way, i have to say it was truly a beautiful beautiful experience! Thank you Catlin. We have amazing memories! Carlos and Mariana Fumero. <3

We had such a fantastic experience at Catlin Gardens. Our wedding was picture perfect. The gardens were gorgeous, the inn was gorgeous, and the room we had the reception in was gorgeous. The whole day felt like a fairy tale!! Everyone who came to the wedding had an amazing time, and commented to us about it, in addition, they couldn't believe how beautiful everything was. I am a pretty anxious person, so I was a worry-wort bride, and by far for me the biggest thing, was how Jaime, our Maitre'd took care of everything for us, we literally didn't have to worry about a single thing. He was incredible. I can't say enough good things. If you're a worrier bride, I highly recommend this place. I can't forget Elsie at the front desk either, she was a tremendous help to us, and such a great person. Thanks Catlin for making our wedding unforgettable!

I just had my wedding at Catlin Gardens on March 24, 2012 and it was AMAZING!! :-) Within the first week and a half of my engagement, I went to visit Catlin Gardens and fell in love with it before I even walked in the front door. The building is beautiful and the gardens in the back are gorgeous!! When we toured the reception room, I knew this was where I was getting married. They have this beautiful tented ceiling that is so different from anything I have ever seen and the entire reception room overlooks the gardens outside. We literally signed our contract that day!! I didn't want to look anywhere else!! And the best part is that there is a gorgeous new inn right on the property that many of my guests stayed at!! Everyone at Catlin Gardens was wonderful right from the beginning. They were soooo accomodating and always got back to me very quickly via email or phone when I had questions. Elsie at the front desk was great and was very helpful in the room blocks and setting up our breakfast for the morning after the wedding. Stephanie and James were great in helping me get everything in order and in going over how we wanted the room set up for both my ceremony and reception as we did get married there. And it was set up exactly how I envisioned it!! Jamie was our maitre d and he was wonderful as well. He kept everything in order and flowing so smoothly. He even made sure I always had everything I needed...including champagne :-) I didn't have to worry about a thing because everyone at Catlin are amazing at what they do!! So many of my guests told me how delicious the food was, how beautiful the venue was, and how great the staff was. And I couldn't agree more!! I had the wedding of my dreams and would do it again there in a heartbeat!! :-) Thank you Stephanie, James, Jamie, Elsie and the entire staff at Catlin Gardens for an amazing wedding!! :-)

I just had my wedding at Catlin Gardens on March 24, 2012 and it was AMAZING!! :-) Within the first week and a half of my engagement, I went to visit Catlin Gardens and fell in love with it before I even walked in the front door. The building is beautiful and the gardens in the back are gorgeous!! When we toured the reception room, I knew this was where I was getting married. They have this beautiful tented ceiling that is so different from anything I have ever seen and the entire reception room overlooks the gardens outside. We literally signed our contract that day!! I didn't want to look anywhere else!! And the best part is that there is a gorgeous new inn right on the property that many of my guests stayed at!! Everyone at Catlin Gardens was wonderful right from the beginning. They were soooo accomodating and always got back to me very quickly via email or phone when I had questions. Elsie at the front desk was great and was very helpful in the room blocks and setting up our breakfast for the morning after the wedding. Stephanie and James were great in helping me get everything in order and in going over how we wanted the room set up for both my ceremony and reception as we did get married there.

Our reception at Catlin Gardens was wonderful. A few weeks before our wedding, our wedding coordinator left Catlin, which made us nervous. However the staff made us feel very comfortable, and the day went without a flaw. Although the gardens weren't opened because our wedding was in March, Jamie turned the fountains on for us because it was a beautiful day, so we could take pictures outside. There were a few requests that we had, and Catlin readily accomodated us. The food was delicious, the Manor House was beautiful and the Inn was convenient and beuatiful. We partied long into the night after the wedding at Jack's Irish Pub! Overall Catlin was a wonderful experience!

I had my wedding at Catlin Gardens last September and it was fantastic! Even though are wedding was a few weekends after the big hurricane and it rained on our big day the staff were amazing. Jennifer was great through the whole process of planning. She was very professional, responded promptly to emails, and gave us many suggestions for how to plan our wedding day. The day could not have run smoothly without Jamie, our Maitre D'. He did a great job with setting up the ceremony and reception. Also I would suggest to stay at the hotel, it's beautiful!

What an amazing venue. EVERYTHING was perfect!!! I never saw such a dedicated staff. A special shout out to Jennifer Stack, James (event manager) and Jamie (Maitre d'). My daughter's wedding is the second one I've been to at Catllin Gardens and both were sensational functions that ran very smoothly.
I found the food to be so fresh and delicious. All through the night people kept telling me that this was the best wedding they had ever been to in their life. Everyone was impressed by the venue. And this was WITHOUT access to the gardens as weather did not permit. STILL FABULOUS! We'll be back!!!

We had a wonderful wedding at Catlin Gardens in July. Jaime was right at our side helping out with every detail along the way. The price is steep, and the liability insurance that they require of all vendors was a hassle, but the location is beautiful, both inside and out... definitely worth it.

Having our ceremony and reception here was one of the best decisions that we eer made. It is not only gorgeous, but the people that we worked with were absolutely great. Everyone was willing to help however they could. We planned the wedding while being out of state and everyone that we were in contact with was very nice to us and able to answer all questions we had in a timly manner via e-mail or telephone. On our actual wedding day they were even better! It did rain slightly, but to ensure that my husband, our families, guests, and I were as comfortable as possible they supplied us with umbrella's, a golf cart to bring to the ceremony and anything else we needed. They were more than accomodating and couldn't be happier with everything!

Catlin Gardens made sure my day was so smooth! Jamie was the best!! He was making sure my husband I were taken care of as well as our family and friends. Everyone was so happy with the food and place. The place is gorgeous. I know the prices are a little higher than others, but each and every cent was worth it! You should visit it.

The only issue would have been that the inn wasn't open by the time of our wedding, which we were told it would have been. Just a small bump but they still took care of us. If you are looking now, the inn is finally open.

It was beautiful and the staff went above and beyond for any request that we or our guests had. Jamie the maitre D was absolutely unbelievable. When we got back from our honeymoon our family and friends wrote us so many emails on how they had never seen someone want to help more then he did. It was absolutely perfect and we recommend them to anyone!

We held our wedding ceremony and reception at Catlin Gardens on October 17, 2009.

James (banquet manager) and Jamie (maitre d) were excellent on the day of our wedding. They kept us on top of our schedule and offered suggestions when things were not going to plan such as moving the festivities inside when the weather was not agreeable and moving around the cocktail hour and ceremony to accommodate the drama that came with the bride leaving her wedding dress at home.

They ran the event very well and were courteous and responsive to all of our guests. They remembered our guests' food allergies and other food preferences and made sure to take good care of our handicapped and elderly guests and our friends with children. We received comments from our bridal party and friends afterward the wedding that this was the smoothest wedding they'd ever been to, that there was never a gap between events where people were standing around wondering about what to do next.

We owe a lot to James and Jamie, for their patience and professionalism.

I am so glad that I had my wedding at Catlin Gardens. The people there were so helpful during the planning and on the day itself. I didn't have to worry about a thing. The food was great, and the Catlin Gardens staff went out of their way to provide a special plate and a separate cake for me because of my food allergies. The grounds are beautiful, and all of our guests said what a wonderful time they had there.

My husband and I got married at Catlin Gardens in Slate Hill, NY, exactly one year ago today July 25, 2010. We wanted an outdoor unique setting for both our ceremony and reception. We LOVED the gardens and the unique look of Catlin. The ceremony tent and design of the reception room are beautiful! The grounds are gorgeous and constantly maintained. Great site for pictures. HOWEVER, when we first went for a tasting, which we had to each pay for, we were greatly disappointed in the food and service. At one point we were served RAW shrimp because no one told the guests that they weren't part of the buffet. My husband and I met with Stephanie shortly after and told her that we wanted to back out and pick a new venue. She insisted on having us come to another tasting and that the first one was not as successful due to overbooking. We went to the second tasting and it was much better. The day of our wedding it was beautiful and Jamie and James were awesome but the dinners were TERRIBLE. According to our guests cocktail hour was good but everyone was unhappy with the quality of their dinner. The steak was supposed to be encrusted in blue cheese. Dropping a few crumbles of blue cheese on top of an OVER cooked piece of beef isn't "encrusted" last time I checked. They never asked anyone including me how i wanted my steak cooked even though I was PROMISED by Stephanie that the wait staff would ask each guest. The garlic mashed potatoes looked like they were slapped on to the plate like we were in the army. The chicken was overcooked to the point of tasting like cardboard. Also, our cake was completely wrong. The filling was incorrect and the outside was supposed to have a green design on it and it didn't. The dessert buffet was supposed to include chocolate mousse but it was not served. At $160 a plate, I expected much better food. You apparently only pay for the atmosphere, so if that's more important to you than good food, then Catlin Gardens is the ideal location for you. But if you enjoy food as much as we do, then steer clear of this place. They were very nice to deal with but in the end full of broken promises. After the wedding I wrote to Stephanie to voice my concerns and she told me that I should've told Jamie and James. Were they going to recook 150 meals? Was I going to let their lack of professionalism ruin my wedding day? She told me they would work on the mash potatoes for the future, and that the dessert buffet was chef's choice, however it DOES NOT say that in their menu or contract. They list the desserts to be served and i was told at the tasting that exactly what we got is what we would have on our wedding day. Bottoms Up Restaurant around the corner from them is where we had our rehearsal dinner and the food surpassed Catlin greatly!

Great and beautiful venue. The gardens are fantastic. The food was excellent at a reasonable rate. The staff working with you on the day of the wedding is wonderful!! I would definitely recommend Catlin Gardens to anyone who wants an elegant, beautiful wedding!
Downside: The wedding cake is a part of the catering package, but if you want a more modern design for your cake, I would suggest attempting to take the cake out of the package. Our cake tasted fine, but looked HORRIBLE! It was a disaster. Be very upfront with what you want and make sure you stay on top of the people who are meant to be communicating your wishes to others.

Everything turned out perfect for my wedding. The staff was able to quickly change plans from outside cocktail to inside due to a crazy storm. I had alot of stress with CG up until right before the rehearsal dinner due to a change in my coordinator and then poor information about the Inn. My main issues were the lodging, as I was told we could use the Inn and it wasn't even built by the time of the wedding. Most hotels in the area were sold out due to West Point graduation, which, when we booked we were not told about.

The venue itself, staffing, food, etc. turned out beautiful at the wedding. I have no complaints from the day of the wedding.
They pulled everything together!
