The reported Blue Hill at Stone Barns wedding cost

If thinking about getting married here, there are a few costs you will need to budget for:  the rental fee, which includes the use of the HayLoft, the HayBarn and Dooryard Garden (weather permitting), the ceremony fee and the catering fee.

Ceremony Fee$3,500
Rental Fee$10,000
Food/Beverage$400/person average (greatly varies depending on inclusions, but this average would include four-course meal and non-alcoholic beverages)

NOTE:  These were averages sourced by other couples who used the venue for their wedding.  Use these estimates as that only — an estimate.  Refer to the venue for more information as every wedding will be different with inclusions, etc.

Westchester Magazine, while breaking down the costs, stated that if you included the ceremony fees, passed hors d’oeuvres, three plated courses, wedding cake or dessert, champagne, wine pairings, and open bar, tables, linens, chairs, table settings, valet parking, lighting and the use of bridal suite, you would be looking at about $73,000 for a peak Saturday evening date.  This fee also included the mandatory 22% administrative fee and 7.375% Westchester sales tax.

The event space

All of the wedding receptions held here, as per WomanGettingMarried.com, will take place inside the HayLoft event space, however, if the wedding cannot accommodate the space, the venue requires the party to rent out its private dining room for an additional fee.

Its private dining space accommodates up to 14 guests, whereas the HayLoft can seat up to 260.  Over 15,000 square feet of space is available for the event.

The ceremony, if held on its premises, will include an additional hour, the ceremony chairs and the use of the grounds prior to the event for any photography.  The ceremony can be held on-site in its courtyard, according to the official website, while the cocktail hour can be held on the terrace.

Catering

Barber and executive chef Michael Anthony will create a seasonal menu, strictly from either the farm or a surrounding one.  For the typical dinner, guests will receive about seven passed hors d’oeuvres, a full bar, an amuse-bouche, a savory appetizer, a fish or meat course, plus a dessert, according to NYMag.com.  A $15 per slice wedding cake cutting fee will apply.

Facts you should know

Westchester Magazine noted it was among “The World’s 50 Best Restaurants” in 2015 and 2016.

If the peak prices seem to be too much, consider getting married on a non-peak day.  As with any wedding venue, customizing the date can greatly decrease the costs, sometimes by as much as 40%.  Talk with an event coordinator at the venue to see if they can work with your budget.

As it is a very popular venue, experts recommend booking your wedding date at least one year in advance.
