The Perfect Wedding Venue

Reviewed on 8/11/2013 Alyson C

I cannot say enough good things about Gibbet Hill. My husband and I had two requirements when we were looking for a wedding venue - good food and a rustic, country setting. Gibbet Hill delivered both and then some. The setting of the venue is stunning. Cows and geese... Read More roam the valley and the barns create a gorgeous backdrop. The food is spectacular, as well. I had many guests approach me after the wedding to tell me they regretted not ordering the beef dish we had selected because they were worried it would be unappealing, as often found when chefs are catering to 100+ people in a short time. Many of the guests had tried steaks their friends had ordered and realized they didn't have to worry about poorly prepared food at Gibbet Hill. My husband and I agreed that the food at the wedding itself was even better than the food at the tasting. We worked with Carolyn throughout the planing process and she was extremely helpful and accommodating with last minute changes. The wedding day itself was so smooth and effortless (on my part) that it definitely felt that the months of planning were worth it. While I can take credit for certain pieces of the wedding turning out as planned, Gibbet Hill and Carolyn definitely made it the perfect day.

Everyone was happy and attentive, giving us nothing to worry about on our big day. There are so many other little things that they did that I could go on all day but suffice to say that this venue was a fantastic choice for a rustic, New England wedding that kicks it a little upscale. It was a dreamy, well planned experience.

Gibbet Hill was exactly what my daughter was looking for; a "rustic", unique renovated barn space with soaring post and beam designs, wrought iron chandeliers and a huge covered deck overlooking a huge lawn with cows on the hills beyond. From our first meeting, our coordinator... Read More Sara Z made us feel that we were in good hands. She was thorough, took in my daughter's vision for her wedding, and delivered a well run event. Our first major planning meeting lasted 3 hours, covering every aspect of the ceremony, reception, decorations, etc. I must have sent her over 30 emails over a 12 month period and she was extremely responsive. I knew when I arrived on the big day and saw Sara at the door that I would not be spending the night running around asking about details. We delivered boxes of decorations to the wedding - everything was perfectly placed as we requested it, and then returned to us at the end of the night. The outside ceremony had to be moved inside because of the weather, and it was set up beautifully. After the ceremony the guests went out onto the now enclosed (roomy & warm) deck to enjoy cocktails while the fully set tables were whisked out from behind screens in the back of the room! The food was absolutely delicious (as well as HOT and on schedule). Everyone commented on the beauty of the venue. I would recommend them wholeheartedly.
