We had the best wedding possibly imaginable and friends and family have not ceased saying it was the best wedding they've ever been to and it is entirely because we chose to use the Blenheim Hill Farm ... Read more as our venue. The owners- Mort and Min and their extremely dedicated staff- Fredrick, Carol, Danielle put every ounce of passion, competency and love into making sure their couples are not merely satisfied, not merely amazed but blown away on their wedding day. There are so many details and surprises that go way above and beyond what is already expected. They say their motto is to promise a lot and to over-deliver. We can attest that they live up to that motto. Their communication and organization before the wedding are as above reproach as their execution on the day of. We have never felt in such good hands. That is merely the service aspect of the Blenheim. But really Blenheim Hill Farms is the whole package. The Barn and the land are stunning and strike the perfect balance of Rustic and Classy. Even if you have reservations about a Farm wedding, the Blenheim will wash away any of your hesitations. Both our parents were skeptical of not using a traditional "banquet style" venue. And both immediately expressed to us how right we were. The food at the Blenheim is provided by the venue, farm to table and NOT your typical wedding fare. It is equivalent to a phenomenal three course meal at a fancy restaurant. The creativity of the chefs and flexibility with how they will accommodate tastes and preferences and the signature cocktails and bar service were exquisite. The Barn is so incredibly conducive to dancing and our wedding was a non stop dance fest. As the night progressed individual light bulbs were turned out one by one to match the mood and flow of the evening. Our gushing review may be lost in a sea of other gushing reviews but that's because the Blenheim Hill Farms does EVERYTHING right.

Flawless - best day ever!

I know that everyone says that their wedding was THE BEST wedding ever, but they've got to all be fibbing because clearly we had THE BEST wedding ever! And the wonderful staff at Blenheim and the ... Read more gorgeous venue played a huge part in that. First – the venue. Having housing on-site is clutch. It was so convenient to get ready & literally walk out of what was our house for the weekend to our rehearsal dinner, ceremony, and reception. We had the bridal party stay there for the weekend, and our hair and make-up artists came and set up in the dining room to get us ready – worked out very well. The grounds are gorgeous. We are both animal lovers, so it was so unique and amazing to have the rescued horses, the piglets, and the goats there. Our guests LOVED that part as well. The lakefront is a beautiful place for the ceremony, and the house is right there – it was perfect for the “big entrance”! The cocktail area is plenty large, and perfectly located for some yard games, which our guests sure did enjoy. One of my worries in looking at this place was that the barn would get way too hot for a July wedding, but this was not at all an issue. We danced our butts off and I was NOT a sweaty mess – hallelujah! Second – the staff. Min (the owners are Min & Morten) was very involved from the get-go, and any worries we had she addressed very quickly. But the real shining star was Mina. Our parents, bridesmaids, and groomsmen were in awe of how much she absolutely killed it. To me, it seemed like she thought of everything in advance. And I’m sure there were hiccups but you know what? Neither myself nor my guests had any idea – which is exactly what a good coordinator does. She took so much of the stress out of the planning, and executed the day perfectly. The waitstaff was phenomenal. They all behaved in a very friendly and professional manner throughout. Before the wedding, I kept hearing, “you’ll be so hungry! You won’t have time to eat!” Let me tell you, they made sure we did not go hungry! There were no long waits at the bar. Third – the food. This is probably what we got the most compliments. We had the salmon, the chicken, and the pork – and each was seasoned and cooked to perfection. I worried about having guests standing in line for buffet service, but that was not an issue at all. Appetizers during cocktail hour were very much enjoyed. I think what stole the end of the night were the pizzas, though. If you’re doing an “afterparty hour”, I highly recommend this add-on. Our guests also enjoyed making smores – they just thought that was so neat. If you’re like me, if you read only positives and no negatives in a review you might think, “bullshit.” So, what were the negatives? The only negative that I can really bring to mind is that there is not a ton of lodging where you can have most of your guests stay very close by. There are lots of bed and breakfasts nearby, but like most bed and breakfasts they have limited capacity. We ended up using the Quality Inn in Oneonta, and shuttling our guests to the venue – it worked out very well, and we had no issues with transportation or lodging to and from the venue. Shuttles really aren’t that expensive, it’s just a bit of extra planning and communicating to your guests, and the coordinator and staff help make sure the timing goes flawlessly on the day of. If we had a time machine and for whatever reason had to do it all over again, we absolutely would choose Blenheim again. Highly recommend!
