Q: How many guests can the barn accommodate

A: The renovated barn can seat up to 300 guests for dinner without infringing on the large dance floor or the Mezzanine.

Q: What does a wedding cost at Meadow Ridge

A: Our average wedding has a six-figure budget. Assuming your wedding is not a Mini Wedding, you would want to have a budget of at least $85,000 to realistically host a wedding at Meadow Ridge.

Q: Do you have overnight accommodations on site

A: No. However we do have a beautiful Inn in the nearby town of Hudson. Most of our couples choose Hudson or Albany as the central location for their guests to stay. We are happy to recommend accommodations for your event.

Q: What is your noise curfew

A: Our curfew is 11:00 PM.

Q: Do you offer after-parties

A: We do not. Our curfew is later than many venues and we have found couples prefer to host their after-party at a spot closer to where their guests are staying. We can make recommendations for after-party locations.

Q: Do you have parking available

A: Yes. We can accommodate 150 vehicles, however, most of our couples choose to provide shuttles to their guests.

Q: Do you have a preparation suite/bridal suite

A: Yes. We have a gorgeous and spacious suite for your use.

Q: How long do we get for our celebration

A: You have 7 hours for your celebration (not to exceed 11:00 PM).

Q: Can we access the property earlier than the 7 hour start time

A: Yes. We expect you, your wedding party, immediate family (basically anyone who will be in your pre-ceremony photos) to access the property earlier.

Q: Can our vendors load in early

A: Yes. You and your vendors will be given access to load in the day prior to your event. Vendors will also be given early access to set up on event day, and 90 minutes to break down after the event. Rental companies and florists load out the following weekday.

Q: Do you have a fire pit

A: Indeed we do – and it’s a big one. We include our fire pit in our site fee. Our staff will build and maintain the fire. Guests can relax in the Adirondack chairs and take in the stars. (Ask about our custom S’mores station.)

Q: Is the barn climate controlled

A: Yes! In addition to radiant heat and HVAC on the lower level, we recently added HVAC to the upper level of the barn to increase guest comfort throughout the wedding season.

Q: Do you have catering in-house

A: No. We want your celebration to be a reflection of you and understand food is a big part of that. We therefore work with outside caterers to offer more variety. We are happy to recommend some of our favorites.

Q: What if I have a specific caterer in mind already

A: Awesome! If they are not already on our approved list, we are happy to meet with them to get them approved.

Q: Do you offer rehearsal dinners

A: Yes. We offer rehearsal dinners in our Garden which is ideal for relaxed gatherings and just far enough away from the main venue areas that your big reveal will not be spoiled the night before.

Q: Do you require a wedding planner

A: Yes. We require a minimum of partial planning services from a professional wedding planner who has a staff of at least one assistant per every 50-75 guests. We also offer professional coordination services in-house, should you prefer that.

Q: Do we have to rent restroom trailers

A: No. We have restrooms inside the barn. Our staff tidies them every 30 minutes during a celebration.

Q: Can we incorporate our dog into our ceremony

A: Absolutely. We love well-behaved, friendly dogs and have had many couples include their furbaby in their celebration. We can even recommend professional dog sitters for after the ceremony.
