  • Locust Grove is a beautiful venue! The gardens are great for wedding photos, for guests to take a stroll, and for children to play. We loved how the ballroom had heigh ceilings and plenty of windows and it didn't feel stuffy. It is a convenient location near many Poughkeepsie hotels and there are plenty of bathrooms and a small bridal suite as well!

  • We loved having our wedding here! It met all our needs - outdoor garden ceremony space (with indoor space as a backup if it rains), beautiful terrace for cocktail hour, and air conditioned reception space with tables/chairs provided. It was super convenient since the catering staff had access to the kitchen and there was ample parking and nice bathrooms for guests. We got a hotel block at the courtyard Marriott next door and our guests were able to walk from the reception back to the hotel, eliminating the need for shuttles/Uber/designated drivers. Ken was extremely responsive and helpful as we planned our wedding.

  • We had our wedding at The Locust Grove in late May, and couldn't be happier with our decision. Ken was a pleasure to work with, and was great with communication. The gardens were a bit delayed due to the winter, but still were gorgeous and provided ample background to our ceremony. We fell in love with the outdoor patio where we had our cocktail hour, and the backyard area overlooking the hudson river where the ceremony was held. Absolutely loved it!

  • Locust Grove was the perfect wedding venue! Similar to other reviewers, we didn't look anywhere else. We had our wedding ceremony and reception here October 20, 2018 and absolutely loved it. Everything about the space is beautiful. Ken was a pleasure to work with and answered all of our questions quickly. The venue fee goes towards maintaining the grounds and educational programs. The best part was being able to decide whether we wanted an indoor or outdoor ceremony the day of, weather dependent. Would definitely recommend for future weddings any time of year!

  • Very simply, Locust Grove was the absolute perfect place to get married. My wife and I literally didn't look anywhere else, and decided we wanted to have our wedding there about 30 seconds into seeing the space. They have multiple spots to choose from for the ceremony; we got lucky with the weather and did ours outdoors, but would have been fine holding it in either of the beautiful galleries if we had to. The cocktail hour spot was perfect - we had a live jazz trio and it worked so well in the covered outdoor space, and the reception room was absolutely beautiful. There are beautiful gardens all over the property, and the entire place is just gorgeous. Our guests were blown away. Ken, Jay and Sean were all great to work with. We really hope to do another event there one day. HIGHLY recommend!!

  • What a beautiful site! I knew this was the venue when we first walked in. The price is affordable compared to other "barn" or "garden" type weddings because Locust Grove provides all of the tables and chairs that we needed! We didn't need to rent them! Ken was so helpful from start to finish. We had our ceremony on site as well. We are so happy with our decision to be married at Locust Grove! It was perfect!

  • Had our wedding at Locust Grove in April of 2018 and it was perfect. The process was very smooth and everything was easy, taking one part of the stress away from our wedding. The grounds were amazing for photos and our guests were able to explore the gardens and trails before the ceremony started. The cherry blossoms were out for our photos so couldn't have been more perfect!

  • Very happy with this beautiful venue. Loved the grounds of the property and very happy leaves were still on the trees for this time of year. This venue definitely met our expectations for a rustic serene look and feel. The space we had for our reception was comfortable and spacious for our 120 guests. Happy we were able to use the separate room for our food setup which allowed more space for dancing. We recommend having your wedding here or any special event. Martin & Justin

  • Locust Grove was the perfect location for my July 2017 wedding of 120 people. There were so many gorgeous spots for photos on the grounds. It was so convenient to have the tables and chairs and not have to pay to bring that in. The venue is so beautiful on its own and needed very few decorations. Our Locust Grove wedding felt intimate and low-key; our guests said they felt like it was out of a story book. Highly recommend this perfect venue!

  • Ken was absolutely wonderful! He was attentive and professional and things went off without a hitch. Locust Grove is beautiful and the gardens are absolutely gorgeous. The venue where we had all the tables and chairs (these are included in the rental fee) fit all of our guests and vendors perfectly. Overall, our wedding in Locust Grove was everything I asked for and more. There's nothing more beautiful than an outside ceremy here. If you pick this place as your venue, don't forget to take a stroll along the gardens before getting married. Trust me!

  • My husband and I married on May 20, 2017 at the beautiful Locust Grove Estate. We both fell for the natural beauty of the estate with the lovely gardens, the opportunities for exploration of the grounds, Samuel Morse's home, the many gorgeous trees, the display of local artists' work, and the incredible West Gallery. Swoon! Family and friends were equally enamored by the space and grounds and continue to let us know. The director of the estate, Ken, was wonderful to work with, informative, and so helpful with any questions we had. Thank you, Ken!

  • Our daughter & son-in-law chose Locust Grove Estate for their wedding for its beauty and location and their love of art & nature. Ken Snodgrass was friendly, professional, and helpfully in so many ways. I can't thank him enough. The grounds are so beautiful and our guests enjoyed roaming, taking in their splendor and exploring the art gallery. Locust Grove Estate made our daughter's wedding a truly wondrous event!

  • I wont lie, what first caught my eye with this place was the affordable price. We paid for our wedding ourselves and we're shocked at how much people wanted to charge to rent a space! When we went to look at the place we were sold. It was beautiful on its own, and I realized it would only take a small amount of decorating on our part. Ken was extremely helpful the whole time. He even let us store stuff there a day early. We received so many compliments on how beautiful the location was!! I highly recommend Locust Grove.

  • We loved having our wedding at Locust Grove and received compliments from all of our guests on how beautiful the venue was. It rained on our day and it was stress-free knowing we had an indoor ceremony option! The building is nice and new (with big, clean, new bathrooms for those of you considering barn weddings!) Ken is responsive and helpful. Everything went perfectly (besides the rain!) and we couldn't be more pleased. The grounds provided an amazing and convenient setting for all of our photos.

  • Locust Grove is a stunning venue. My husband and I fell in love the first time we visited, which was on a gloomy, rainy day in late March- it was beautiful even then! We got married in June 2017, so the venue was gorgeous with the blooming flowers and beautiful trees. We loved that there was ample outdoor space, as well as indoor space for the reception. We had 125 guests, and it was the perfect amount in our opinion. We were able to have our ceremony outside on the lawn, and our pictures are absolutely gorgeous. We also loved how the venue provided tables, chairs, and restrooms, so you can personalize the wedding but it's not completely DIY. We really don't have many complaints, but here are a few "issues" we encountered: On Friday for our "rehearsal," there really weren't any staff members there to help guide us. It worked out totally fine, but just a head's up that you will be on your own. Also, while Ken was very responsive and a great point person leading up to the day, ... Read more
