I’m looking for a venue in Eastern PA, Delaware, NJ, any area around NYC, Brooklyn, etc. Somewhere that’s not more than a 2 hour drive from central Jersey.
I would like it to be an outdoor wedding but have a great garden or scenery. I don’t like “rustic”. I’d like it to be elegant. Like an estate or mansion. I was going to have it at my grandfather’s estate but it’s just too far for everyone. And I loved the pictures of Elkin Estate but I other bees told me that they filed for bankruptcy.
I seem to be having no luck. Any suggestions?

How about the Stockton Inn (http://stocktoninn.com/, click on ‘weddings’ for their nicer webpage)? It sounds like it might be what you’re looking for! The Harvest Moon Inn is also very nice (http://www.harvestmooninn.info/). Both are in central NJ.

What would I do without the bees 🙂 I sent the links to my fiance and hopefully one of them will be to both of our liking!

I haven’t been to any weddings there, just weekends away, but it’s elegant and beautiful with top-notch personal service.
