- Wedding: August 2014
This is my first post to weddingbee, and I’m desperately hoping to get some feedback! In exchange, I have listed what I have researched so far below my post, as to help out other brides.
I am hoping to get some ideas on unique venues in Northern NJ. I am open to driving up to an hour for a great venue/price. I have had a hard time finding something I like on our approximate $15,000 budget (which I think is a lot of money for a wedding). I am thinking finding a great rental space and then having a caterer would work best for our budget, but all ideas are welcome!
I don’t want a place with drop ceilings (future architecture student here!), and preferably someplace that is unique (read:not a wedding factory)
I hope my research helps you, and I hope you can help me! 🙂 Thank you!

http://gardenstategardens.org/ This is a list of gardens in NJ, some of which you can get married in, others which you can have ceremony and reception, others where you can have just photos taken 🙂
Note, I also have pricing on many many other places (many out of my price range), but any feedback is super helpful. I think if I could find a rental space <$2500 that would be ideal, then I could tackle the caterer! If you list someone and don’t have pricing, I will look in my wedding email folder and fill in any blanks! (As you can tell, I’m tired of calling/emailing people for prices that are out of my budget)
