Imagine family and friends in a flowered field, on a hillside, in a grand, rustic barn, or beneath a white wedding tent pavilion on the spacious lawns, 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 in the distance. The mountains rise up all around.

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, Full Moon Resort features over one hundred acres of meadows, forests and streams, along with comfortable country inn style accommodations... for your entire group of friends and family.

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 open air "Tent Pavilion" (featuring full flooring, thermostatically controlled heating, ambient lighting) or at the artistically rustic Wedding Barn. The celebration is topped off with a late night After Party at the "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 Tent Pavilion or Barn.

This full service facility is also noted for 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", and Borrowed and Blue's "Best of B&B: Hudson Valley Weddings." Cool. Fun. Highly professional service. The ideal setting for a magical country wedding! Read less

From start to finish, our experience working with Full Moon for our wedding was incredible. Pre-wedding, our assigned wedding planner (included in the price of booking) helped us curate the perfect wedding experience that fit our needs and desires to a tee. The venue had the best combination of rustic and chic, perfect for our more adventurous guests as well as our guests that needed more tending to. Having your wedding at Full Moon allows you to curate an entire magical weekend with your guests - for us, we wanted a wedding themed "Dirty Dancing meets a Jewish sleep away camp". We screened Dirty Dancing after the rehearsal dinner BBQ (fire pit and s'mores outside for those who didn't feel like watching). On Saturday we planned a whole day of camp activities from yoga to hiking, arts and crafts to kickball tournament. No other place we looked at allowed us this amount of flexibility and options.

The site is gorgeous with many different locations to host various events. The on site caterer was INCREDIBLE, many of our guests commented on the quality of the food, from breakfasts to lunches to cocktail hour and reception dinner they killed it on quality and presentation. The accommodations on site are well taken care of and allow your closest family and friends to be with you for the whole weekend.

I am a theater producer in the city and let's just say I was very specific in my vision of my wedding. I seriously could not have asked for a better experience. Five stars, A++, I am one happy groom. Look no further, if you want an outdoor rustic chic wedding, THIS is the place to have it.

Oh, and LeighAnn was our wedding planner. Major props, I couldn't have done it without her!

Full Moon is magical! We wanted to host a wedding weekend that felt like summer camp for adults, and Full Moon delivered. The grounds are breathtaking. The staff is gracious. We and our guests thought the food prepared by Chef Adam's team was mostly delicious, including some nouveau Indian cuisine and our wedding cake! Melanie, our day-of coordinator, was a tremendous help before and during the wedding. Melanie made sure that she, my other vendors and I had all ironed out all logistics so that by 4 p.m. on Friday and through the rest of the weekend I was able to enjoy everything without further coordination. On Friday, Full Moon’s standard process is to have welcome services for guests at check-in, an evening BBQ and an after party with bonfire. On Saturday, there is generally free time until the wedding ceremony, cocktail, reception and after party. We complicated this process by adding an Indian engagement ceremony in the middle of the BBQ and an Indian sangeet in the middle of the after party, as well as soccer and cricket on Saturday. Full Moon never said “no” and made sure it all happened seamlessly. As evidence of how thorough Full Moon is, they boxed up food for guests that did not arrive on time and also put extra meals in my husband and my room on Saturday after the reception! Full Moon does require additional effort on the couple's part, including assigning guests to their rooms and bringing the "extras" you want to use (e.g., sparklers, smores, tiki torches, etc). The advantage of this is that the Full Moon wedding is very personalized. Also, although the cabins have free wifi, cell reception is very poor, which means NO one is looking at his/her phone and everyone is socializing! Note that the rooms are clean, simple and comfortable. All have fans and some have AC, but this is not a five star hotel experience. Also, wear comfy shoes for the gravel and grass paths (although there is a golf cart for those with mobility issues).

Full Moon Resort offered and delivered the wedding of our dreams! Co-owner Michael Densmore truly embodies his values of offering a unique opportunity to customize your special day, in a beautiful location, without making it a burdensome experience. He wants every couple to be happy and each staff member - from Paul, to Chef Adam, to the wedding planners, to the room coordinators, to the bar manager, and to the wait staff - upheld that belief and genuinely cared about you. I felt more like family than a client.

Melanie was phenomenal! I was really happy to get to work with her. She is so incredibly informed, which facilitated the planning process for me. I appreciated and trusted her opinions when it came to making critical decisions. She never discouraged me from pursuing an idea. In fact, she helped me refine my ideas as they came up and offered insight that I would not have thought about.

All of my family and friends that were in attendance are still talking about how different our wedding was from any others they attended. During the course of the wedding, one of my guests said to me “I have never been to a wedding like this” to which I replied “Neither have I”. I hope you find what you are looking for in your special day at Full Moon. Brendan and I did...it was better than we could have asked for...and boy did we have a blast!

I am SO thankful that my mom stumbled upon Full Moons website! Their gorgeous venue is exactly what my husband and I had in mind for our wedding, and when we found out about their all-inclusive weekend wedding packages we were sold! We are both in the military and therefore have friends and family all over the US so the idea of a laid back bonfire BBQ rehearsal dinner, and Sunday brunch was perfect for us to give our families and friends a chance to get to know one another since it would be the first time they had ever met. Not to mention the weekend wedding package also came with a wedding coordinator, and again, working full time and going to school made it difficult to also plan a wedding. I could NOT have done it without LeighAnn! She was absolutely fantastic to work with from day 1 until we drove off after our wedding! I ask a lot of questions and LeighAnn answered my emails and calls right away every time and she always knew the answer. Also, the co-owner, Michael was so kind and threw in several complimentary services/items for my husband and I as a military discount. We were very budget conscious so we also took advantage of the winter wedding specials and had every single thing we wanted and settled on nothing, all within our budget, believe it or not! Our guests STILL rave about how amazing the food was, how sweet, helpful and accommodating EVERY single staff member was, and how gorgeous and relaxing the grounds were. Although Wi-Fi is available our guests loved being able to “un-plug” from society and enjoy a peaceful weekend in the mountains. I recommend this to anyone who wants a beautiful, rustic, easy, affordable wedding! I couldn’t imagine having our wedding any place else!

Everyone is still talking about our wedding. I owe that entirely to the staff at Full Moon. From the first email, they were helpful, responsive and professional. From our first meetings with Paul, we fell in love with how much personality the entire property had. There was so much that we could do with the property to make our event truly our own. My wedding coordinator, Leighann, was beyond helpful. She is a saint, being patient, kind and helpful even with last minute panic attacks. The food was sensational, the staff was friendly and kind, and everything went so smoothly. The great thing about Full Moon is that you have 120 acres of property to work with. So if you want to have an outdoor ceremony- you can. But you have MULTIPLE areas as a backup if it ends up being too cold or wet. There are multiple areas for cocktail hour and the reception itself as well. Not to mention- there is a "bar" on site for the after party! We had a Sunday wedding, which was an amazing value. However, you have a different timeline with a Sunday wedding, since you can't be on site until later in the day when the Saturday wedding leaves. Leighann was amazing at making sure that everything and everyone still ended up in the right place. Everything was wonderful. I already want to plan another family event just to be able to collaborate with them.

Having our wedding at Full Moon Resort was the best decision we could have made! Our main priority for our wedding was spending as much time as possible with the people we love, and at Full Moon we were able to do that. We had a full weekend wedding with a BBQ and bonfire on Friday, the wedding and reception on Saturday, and breakfast on Sunday. Everything went incredibly smoothly with the help of Full Moon's fantastic staff! Melanie, our planner, was very responsive throughout the planning process and was also very flexible with allowing us to bring or change things. She asked the questions we didn't know we needed to answer and I cannot thank her enough! The food was great, the ceremony location was beautiful, and every one of our guests had a fantastic time. Thanks Full Moon!

Full Moon Resort made our wedding day! They cater everything and provide you with an extremely helpful and professional event manager. The food was delicious and the property is stunning in its simplicity. Our cake was made by Chef Adam and it was just as delicious as it was beautiful. My husband and I had a rustic wedding and Chef Adam decorated it like a birch tree. It was amazing! Full Moon Resort is the best! This is what you call a destination wedding. I couldn't be happier with the way our wedding day turned out and its all because of Full Moon Resort.

My husband and I wanted a semi-destination, weekend-long wedding, and Full Moon is set up for exactly that. Our initial tour with Paul was fantastic. He was very enthusiastic and informative and pretty much sold us on the location that day. If you are considering this location and have your heart set on a date or time of year, make sure you book early (like at least a year in advance). We had a Friday night BBQ rehearsal dinner, Saturday ceremony and reception and brunch on Sunday. It was convenient and fun to have many of our guests stay the whole weekend and not have to leave for meals. Everyone seemed to enjoy their accommodations and had positive comments about the meals. The planning process was fairly easy with the help and guidance of our coordinator, LeighAnn. She is super friendly, very responsive to emails/phone calls and is full of information and suggestions. She is really great at what she does and really makes sure things run as smoothly as possible. The planning process that you undertake with Full Moon is down to a science and has built in deadlines that seem daunting at first, but in retrospect were very helpful in making sure you are chipping away at things at a good pace and not scrambling to complete tasks at the end. We had Aileen holding things down regarding room reservations and that also went quite well. The weekend of the wedding, things went by really quickly, but I do know that I felt like everything was under control. Overall, Full Moon is a fantastic choice for weddings. It had the atmosphere we desired and the skilled and friendly staff to make everything happen. Thank you!

My husband and I wanted a semi-destination, weekend-long wedding, and Full Moon is set up for exactly that. Our initial tour with Paul was fantastic. He was very enthusiastic and informative and pretty much sold us on the location that day. If you are considering this location and have your heart set on a date or time of year, make sure you book early (like at least a year in advance).

There aren't enough words for how wonderful our wedding at Full Moon was. My husband and I were skeptical of having a full wedding weekend, but once we visited Full Moon we had no doubts that that was where we wanted to get married. The only things we wanted out of a wedding were live music, good food and wine, and all our friends and family in one space having an amazing time. We got all of that and more at Full Moon!

Melanie, the event planner, is a complete lifesaver. She is poised and efficient and the way she runs the actual wedding day is flawless. The entire staff at Full Moon are lovely, kind, friendly, and efficient in everything they do. Arlene, the reservations manager, was another lifesaver. She made the reservation process simple and straightforward. She also didn't get ruffled when I kept making changes! I can't say enough good things about everyone at Full Moon. The entire planning process was simple and straightforward. We managed to plan an entire wedding weekend with no hassle or added stress!

One of our favorite things about Full Moon was the Friday night BBQ and the After Party. Since my husband is a musician, he and his musician friends were able to play on both Friday and Saturday night in the Performance Space. This was such an amazing treat to have live music at our wedding weekend! The space really lends itself to live music and the vibe is so laid back and fun.

We keep getting compliments that our wedding was the most fun wedding anyone had been to. The word people keep using to describe the weekend at Full Moon is "Magical." Full Moon is seriously one of the most magical places out there and I can't say enough good things about it. In every single candid photo from the event our guests have huge smiles and laughter painted on their faces. What more could you ask for!? Do yourself a favor and add Full Moon to your list of places to consider for a wedding venue. You won't be disappointed!

This was the most amazing venue that we could have hoped for for our winter wedding! It was rustic, charming, clean and the food was DELICIOUS! They were flexible and professional about specific aspects of our event. We got so many compliments from our guests about how they felt well taken care of by us and by the Full Moon staff. The winter pricing was exactly what our budget called for. They peppered us with questions before the event but in the end it made us relax once we got there because they truly had thought of everything. I cannot say enough good things about Full Moon.

Food- BBQ was delicious way to start our weekend of events. The seafood omelettes, pancakes and french toast were some of my favorite brunch reception entrees. The salmon was my favorite dinner entree. And the cake made by them was great! I do wish I had been pickier about the icing though. It was the hard kind that was a bit like a layer of marshmallow fluff and I like soft, creamy icing.

Their vendor referrals were excellent and it helped to work with vendors who know Full Moon well. That was really key for the photographer and decorations from our local florist. Their on site wedding coordinator Melanie is really great at what she does. I wonder when she sleeps...
