Emmerich is the PERFECT place for a gorgeous wedding! Not only are the venue representatives helpful and accommodating, but the setting is absolutely breathtaking. Our guests would not (and still won't) stop talking about the spectacular views and how beautifully unique the setting is. If you're an avid DIY-er like myself, the personalization opportunities are endless! And if you're a minimalist, the scenery is all the decor you need. With all that said, if anyone reading this review decides to go with Emmerich, I'll be looking out for an invite! ;)
Our wedding at the Emmerich Tree Farm was absolutely magical and everything I had dreamt of! Kurt was wonderful to deal with and was always available to us from the planning phase right through the big event. The outdoor ceremony set among the evergreen trees was so beautiful! The reception space was perfect for dinner and dancing as well. The tree farm is an exceptional, one of kind location for rustic weddings and I could not have been more happy!
Emmerich Tree Farm is a unique, beautiful outdoor wedding venue if you're looking for an intimate feel and a DIY wedding. The tree farm owners were a pleasure to work with, quick to respond, and open to feedback as they continue to add features as their popularity grows. Your guests will walk through the woods to the ceremony site, which is located right next to the reception site under a covered pavilion. The ceremony site is located on top of the hill overlooking mountains and, of course, the evergreen trees! The site has bathrooms, dance floor under the pavilion, a fire pit ( we had a s'mores bar), and plenty of space on the grounds for "lawn" games. The tree farm owner recently built a "bridal tent" in the middle of the woods, where we hung out in between our first look and the ceremony so that our guests wouldn't see us as they arrived. Our wedding turned out exactly as we pictured, having nice weather certainly helped. Highly recommend for couples willing to put in some work for a DIY wedding, as you would have to contact and organize your own vendors- so worth it! The tree farm owner has contacts as well as past couples.
Emmerich Tree Farm is a wedding venue like no other! We were in search of a rustic, yet elegant spot that gave us the opportunity to personalize and customize the way we wanted. If you are looking for a complete DIY venue, this is the spot for you. My husband and I hold Warwick, New York close to our hearts and working with Kurt Emmerich could not have been easier. A town built upon hard work, dedication, love, and support. We love the message that Warwick provides and wish to bring these values into our marriage. We offered food and drinks from places found locally that have inspired us over the years. Nestled in the forest of tall Oaks, at Emmerich Tree Farm, live music and lawn games were played while overlooking the family farm and Warwick skyline. With S'mores, we end the night, guests gathered around the fire pit, then we had a final celebration by lighting sparklers for our farewell. It was very important to us to source everything locally and have our guests experience what we love. With this venue, we had the opportunity to book Alan Falafel's of Chester, New York where their food truck was more than welcome on the property. We served wine, hard cider, and beer from all the local wineries and breweries such as Clearview Vineyard, Applewood Winery, Warwick Winery, and Rushing Duck. The Craft Beer Cellar of Warwick was also a big help. As your guests arrive, they can grab a drink like ours did, they may walk down the wooded path or take a golf cart ride where they will gaze upon Kurt's beautiful farm. The best part is, Kurt provides the golf cart, rustic bars, and shelves for your use and there are two bathrooms on the property for your use as well. I would recommend Emmerich Tree Farm a million times over and our guests still remind us of the most enchanted wedding day they have ever experienced.
We were married at Emmerich Tree Farm in May 2017, and it was absolutely perfect for us. We looked at dozens of venues in the NY/NJ area, and Emmerich is a brilliant outdoor setting with everything ready to use, including parking, restrooms, kitchen facilities, tents, lights, and a sound system. The owners were so good to us, going above and beyond to make sure that we were happy. We definitely recommend Emmerich to anyone looking for a gorgeous outdoor space that wants to support a sweet family!
