We also have chickens, ducks, peacocks and other livestock on the farm.

The farm is extremely private as we own both sides of the road and have no neighbors within ½ mile. No other houses can be seen, all you and your guests will see and hear is nature. There are countless areas for photos and your ceremony.

What our clients say about Catskill Weddings at Natural Gardens!

Full of Magic

The Natural Gardens is a beautiful place, full of magic.

You come through the trees at the top of the hill and walk down the incline to look up and see an expanse of tall green grasses dotted with pink and purple flowers. The nuptials were in a valley where the voices of the Rabi, Bride, Groom and friends echoed as they blessed each other.  Or in the case of this wedding, Blind Melon sang through the trees as tiny humans dressed as bees skipped through the aisle. A few ponds over is an opening for cocktails and conversation.  A lovely place to unwind as the sun sets before entering the barn for the evening. The barn was stunning, clean, elegant and well lit.  The service was beyond stellar and the bartenders were the fastest I have experienced at a wedding. I would suggest wearing nothing but flat shoes, sandals or flip flops to this venue as the walking paths are gravel and there are so many incredible parts of the property to explore. The bonfire that the bride and groom provided for the guests after a night of dancing was extremely thoughtful.  It added just one more moment for friends and family to soak up the magic of the The Natural Gardens, enjoy each other, toast a marshmallow and listen to the songs and sound of a guitar.

A Natural Wonder

The Natural Gardens is a Natural Wonder.

What a beautifully manicured property and the perfect venue for a barn/country wedding. New barn space for reception was clean and beautiful. The grounds were vast and fantastic with A+ views in every direction. The owners of the venue went above and beyond to accommodate the needs of everyone. This included having 4 golf carts being driven by the staff that would pick up any older family that needed help moving the several hundred yards from ceremony to reception space. I would agree with another reviewer that the only limitation would be not to wear High Heeeled shoes - similar to any outdoor wedding (or Preakness Stakes). I 100% highly recommend Natural Gardens for a wedding or other celebration! JODA 4 LIFE!

Absolutely Magical

My son and new daughter-in-law were married at the Natural Gardens a few weeks ago and all I can say is that the event was absolutely magical! The grounds are gorgeous and the venue staff went way beyond expectations as far as supporting the vision of the newlyweds. In the days and months that led to the wedding, the venue staff were always responsive and helped the newlyweds to plan a weekend of events that added to the wedding itself. So many of my friends expressed the feelings that this was the most beautiful wedding they had ever attended! If you want memories that you will truly cherish, book your wedding at the Natural Gardens!!!!

Behind The Scenes

I was able to be behind the scenes at a summer wedding here.

I was the matron of honor and saw many details many other reviews may not have got to see! On the property, there is a small chateau (cottage) where the gals in the wedding were able to get ready. A bedroom, a sitting area with pit-type couch, and another small area with a love seat were places to hang out and change, but there was also an area for hair and makeup set up with good lighting. The torches that lit the path between areas the wedding used made the short walk magical. Late night set-up included a bonfire on the property where guests played guitar, sang, and roasted marshmallows for s'mores. The golf carts greeted us at the bonfire and helped us with our small suitcases of hair/makeup/change of clothes and drove us up the hilly driveway to our bus. Personally, I liked the small barn mouse who ran across the rafters during my speech. He made the audience laugh and took the pressure off me! I highly recommend this event venue for outdoor weddings and family reunions!

Gorgeous Wedding

I'm in a wedding band and have attended roughly 200+ weddings as a result.  This venue, hands down, is the most beautiful one I've encountered yet.  Attended a gorgeous wedding as a guest and loved every moment.  The setting is glorious.  I would 100% have my wedding here!

Beautiful Location

I attended a lovely wedding at the Natural Gardens this summer and had an absolutely lovely time. Guests were asked to wear comfortable shoes because of the natural, unpaved landscape and grass that makes up the beautiful venue surrounded by trees and ponds.  The location is outside of cell service (which we were also informed about) which ended up being a blessing in disguise because it helped us fully immerse ourselves in the beautiful moment of our friends celebration. The inside venue itself is a large newly (looking) constructed wood barn that was very clean and comfortable which manged accommodate a fairly large number of guests.  Because there were many outside places along the ponds with benches there was never a feeling of being confined and it allowed the guests to escape to nature and watch the stars with the near 0 light pollution. The venue staff were very friendly and helpful toward guests specifically with transporting on golf carts those who needed assistance getting to the ceremony which was a short walk away.

Richard's 75th!

Yesterday, with the help of many friends, we celebrated Richards's 75 years of greatness. The perfect place to have a party was at Natural Gardens. We are very blessed to have Cathy Fletcher and Stephen McCarthy in our lives.

Why we chose Natural Gardens

We visited many venues in the Catskills. We chose Natural Gardens for our wedding because they were friendly, prompt and honest. We found most venues to show pictures on their websites that were not totally accurate and when we visited, we noticed that specific negative features of the venue were not shown. We also found many venues to be non-responsive and non-negotiable to our needs. Natural Gardens on the other hand was the total opposite bending over backwards to help us. The pictures on the website did not do the venue justice, it is actually even more spectacular than photos can show. If you want a venue to knock your socks off, you must visit this venue, you will not regret it!....

Becky Salter - Married at Natural Gardens 6/18/16

Natural Gardens is an absolutely beautiful venue.

We would highly recommend it to anyone looking to have an outdoor wedding in upstate NY. Steve and Cathy were extremely accommodating and responsive. They went out of their way to help us create the wedding we imagined. When we first toured the venue last year the pavilion was not yet constructed, but the outdoor space was so gorgeous we knew this was where we wanted to get married. Steve reviewed the floor plan with us and assured us it would be built in time, and of course it was. Our guests were awed by the beauty of the ponds and flowers, which also made an amazing backdrop for our ceremony and photographs. This really is a hidden gem in East Meredith, NY.

Thomas Hedderich - Spectacular Setting

From the minute I left the road and entered the world of Natural Gardens I was stunned by the size, layout and scenic beauty of the whole place. It is nestled amidst wooded and grassy hills and filled with countless perennial gardens, pathways and spectacular koi-filled ponds, streams and waterfalls. Bridges, gazebos, birdhouses and charming rustic-style structures complete this incredible location.

Shan-gri-la does exist folks!


Thank you Jennie! Thanks for including me in this amazing and special weekend! I'm truly blessed to know you and your family...wish I would've gotten a pic standing between Francisco and your great grandfather!

Mary Rickman

Thank you for a fantastic wedding! It was magical!


Ashley said... We have not yet had our wedding at this venue, however the pre-planning process has been very smooth and stress-free. Steve has been extremely flexible and responsive throughout the wedding planning process and has been great with being in touch with our other vendors and coordinating the big event with them. On multiple occasions we have returned to the venue to see it once more and Steve is always more than willing to walk us around the grounds and share his vision with us. You can tell Steve is hard-working and dedicated by the care that he gives to the beautiful landscape of The Ponds at Natural Gardens. It truly is the perfect venue for a one-of-a-kind wedding, where the setting and natural beauty is the decor!
