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!

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...

We can't say enough about Full Moon Resort. We knew that FMR would be where we were going to get married the minute we walked onto the grounds. Our wedding coordinator, Melanie, was AMAZING!!! Our housing Coordinator, Ashley, was a saint!!! I come from a GIANT family and every step of the way, I knew I had Melanie and Ashley's support. Melanie was a rock. Through out my wedding, the staff were so lovely and friendly, but not in a fake over the top kind of way, it was genuine. Another thing I can not pass on this review was the FOOOOOOD!!!! My guests were blown away by how delicious EVERY single meal was.
We got married in December and we asked them to serve a stew and everyone was raving about it. Not to mention the Friday night BBQ- wow. I could not stop eating the pulled pork, even though I had to get my wedding dress on the next day!!! It was that good!
The only thing I can say, is that if you are looking for a rustic, beautiful, warm and welcoming place to get married, then look no further than the Full Moon Resort. You will not be disappointed. :)

My husband and I were married at Full Moon on June 30th, 2013 and, as the cliche goes, it was one of the best days of my life. I owe much of that to the wonderful and attentive staff at Full Moon Resort. I had fallen in love with a picture I found online of the beautiful Catskill Mountains behind the barn. When I finally visited, it took me about 2 minutes to decide that this was the place I would get married.

Henry, the owner, spent many hours going through the contract, explaining the packages, and working well within our tight budget. (In the end, I had better food and more options than I had originally anticipated, AND I ended up under budget!) The entire staff, from the first visit to the day after, was accommodating and easy to work with. Melanie, however, stands out among the rest. As our wedding coordinator, she went above and beyond in planning, making last minute changes, and getting back to my emails (with solutions!) right away.

When my dream of an outdoor wedding was changed when torrential rains came through, I was extremely disappointed. Melanie knew that I wasn't too thrilled with the "Plan B" indoor option, so she pulled some last minute strings and moved my entire cocktail hour (with decorations!) to the barn. The cocktail hour ended up being my favorite part of the wedding and I looking back I'm even thankful it rained. (Side note: rain + Catskills = amazing wedding pictures.)

My guests all stayed over and partied their little hearts out during the after party in the barn. We hosted a goodbye brunch the next day, and the food was amazing then as well. It was so convenient having all my guests stay at Full Moon and hosting a full wedding weekend at one location.

Thank you, Full Moon! You truly went above and beyond.
