The venue hunt can be equal parts exciting and exhausting. Have you been to your fair share of NJ weddings, but no venue has really caught your eye as being "the one" for your own big day? Do you believe in "the newer, the better?" With visions of weddings past swirling around in your head, maybe you need to set your sights on something new. Check out New Jersey's three newest wedding venues.
__The Grove (Cedar Grove) __ Above
As one of New Jersey's newest venues, The Grove embodies classical elegance with modern accents — culminating in a glamorous and lavish venue that can accommodate up to 700 guests. Offering a variety of packages on their historic grounds (which consists of a charming brownstone home from the late 1700s) that have been restored and preserved to enchant wedding guests throughout all celebrations that call this venue home. Nestled amongst awe-inspiring gardens and patios, you can say, "I do" in an outdoor ceremony or indoors, too. When it's time to party, the ballroom shines courtesy of the plethora of crystal chandeliers, palladium windows, a dramatic staircase — all surrounding a wooden dance floor. With luxuriously appointed dressing suites, you will be sure to have a day to remember from start to finish at this northern NJ venue. Read real brides' reviews here!

The Park Chateau Estate & Garden (East Brunswick)
Now booking for 2017 affairs, The Park Chateau will be one of New Jersey's most elegant venues.

The sophistication only begins there. With indoor and outdoor space, guests will enjoy views of the glistening pond in the Versailles Garden, take in French antiques decorating the interior space, and design meant to reflect a French countryside ambiance. The Grand Ballroom features silver place settings, crystal chandeliers, ornate moldings, and breathtaking high ceilings — serving as the perfect backdrop to your party. Designed by the partners who also currently own both gorgeous venues Nanina's In The Park and The Park Savoy, it's evident this venue will be the talk of the town.
