WeddingWire Couples’ Choice Awards 2021 Winner
FEAST at Round Hill Named Winner in The Knot Best Of Weddings 2022
With more than 130 weddings hosted in 2021 and over 5,000 gorgeous photos shared with us, choosing highlights was a challenge. Each and every wedding was incredibly special, even more so after the difficult year we emerged from. 2021 was a mix of new weddings and rescheduled weddings from 2020, with a few couples even celebrating twice with us (and it was such a pleasure to celebrate with them again). A few unique wedding trends emerged in 2021, including aerial wedding photography and dramatic night portraits, many which you will see below, along with a few spectacular drone footage videos of the views here in Washingtonville, New York (don’t miss the video at the end of the highlights).
We appreciate everyone who chose us for the most important day of their lives and we want to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts. Here’s to a happy and healthy 2022! Cheers!
Dramatic skies in May were the perfect backdrop for Chernel and Will’s wedding portraits—and we love how they included their “dog of honor”.
“It was the first venue we checked out, but I fell in love with the Klimt paintings in the dining room. We still checked out 5 other venues, but nothing compared to FEAST. We booked a few days later. Originally we set a day for May 2020, but of course with COVID, we ended up postponing. Although it was a very stressful time, Peter and the team were super accommodating. They were always quick to respond and eager to listen to my concerns. Day of the wedding, everything was beautiful. Helen was by my side to fill our drinks and make sure we ate. All of our guests loved all the food. I especially loved the filet mignon! Definitely do all the upgrades! Gold China, ivory seats, lamb chops and filet mignon! You won’t be disappointed. Honestly, I couldn’t have asked for a better day. Thank you all for making our wedding the best day ever!”

A perfect sunset and photos by the pond were the extra special touch at Gabriella and Anthony’s May wedding.
“This was the best choice we could have made. My fiancé and I checked out a few different venues, and even in winter, without the garden in bloom, nothing else compared. The staff was exceptional from day one up until the day of the wedding. Everything was easy to plan with them and it all went off without a hitch. All of our guests were amazed with both the venue and the service. I don’t think a minute went by during the reception where I didn’t have a drink in my hand; by the time I finished one there was another on its way (thanks to Ellen for the great service). In addition, Rose, our Maitre’d, was absolutely fantastic! We went over everything on the phone the week before hand and it was as if she read our minds. She couldn’t have done a better job if she tried. Thanks to all for an amazing one of a time experience! Our friends and family are still amazed and talking about the wedding days later.”

Constance and Matthew’s July wedding was featured in The New York Times! “I loved his values, his view of the world and his love of the school children we taught,” said Constance. “This man was my best friend, my mentor and my lover.” 😍 A wedding that will always be dear to our hearts.

Julie and Jason’s love story was also featured in The New York Times! “It was through music, not movement, that Julie and Jason first introduced themselves as a married couple to their 107 friends and family members. After their June 5 ceremony in New York’s Hudson Valley, the bride and groom performed “Always,” a song Julie wrote for Jason in the first few months they were dating.”

Sara and her father’s first look has us in tears.
“We had our wedding on October 22, 2021 at FEAST and it was the most beautiful, fall wedding we could have imagined! Where to start… we booked FEAST two years in advance after going to one of their tasting tours. It was the second venue we viewed and we knew after that was it! The food was amazing, the grounds were amazing, and the staff were all so kind. This all remained true for our wedding day, too! Everyone was marveling at the flowers on site and how beautiful everything looked. The hot drinks provided during the ceremony were also a welcome touch. I don’t know when Peter, Shelley, or Kim sleep because they were responsive to all emails and questions! Our maitre’d was Ellen and she ensured that everything ran smoothly and that we ate and drank water throughout our reception (staying hydrated is important!!) We are so happy with how everything went and FEAST truly helped make it such a special day!”

It was wonderful to celebrate with Ruthi and Hamer for a second time this year! Their micro wedding took place in 2020 (they were featured in our 2020 highlights and in Wedding Vortex) and their larger celebration was held in November 2021, featuring entertainment from Yasmeena Dance Artist.

“You are my best friend and I promise to laugh with you, to cry with you and grow with you. I will love you when we are together and when we are apart.”
