What about Liberty House in Jersey City?  http://www.libertyhouserestaurant.com/  I’m not sure about the prices or if it’s too far from Morristown for you, but the decor is simple and clean and it’s definitely not your typical banquet hall.  I think they do ceremonies outside and the view is amazing!  Good luck, we had the hardest time with our venue search as well — I was about ready to give up!

Hi ! I am having my reception at Tim McLoones Supper Club in Asbury Park.

 

http://www.timmcloonessupperclub.com/

 

It is very reasonable price wise, since it has 3 or 4 packages beginning at 70$ a head and up. The ambiance is awesome! It is very modern, chic, and has a jazz night club feel. The tables are amazing; You Do NOT need linens. They are a gorgeous wood. I am only doing small, modern centerpieces, such as a potted orchid, to keep it with the night club feel. The building is circular, and it has big booths along the sides. Also, the celing..ah I LOVE the ceiling. It is like a wheel and it has little light blubs along the wheel. The venue is on the boardwalk, and they have ceremonies on the beach if you want.

McLoone also has 4 other restuarants that have ballrooms/receptional halls. They are all very different. There is a pretty one in long branch, also on the ocean. These other restuarants are more pricey, because of the areas are more ritzy. Also, the reception halls are more traditional, and they get a lot more weddings than where mine is going to be. All of his restuarants are either on the ocean or a lake/river.

I’m not sure if this is what you are looking for. I wouldn’t decribe the supper club as natural….but it is simple, modern, and very different.

 

Hope this helps!

I have a funny feeling you might like the place i am getting married at.  I am getting married at the Lake Mohawk Country Club in Sparta. Probably about 35 minutes from morristown.  It is this old castle like building on a lake. We too were looking for that unique place where we could do outdoors and indoors.  So we are doing cermony and cocktail outdoors and then reception indoors.  Another plus about this place is it is one wedding a day.  We had also looked at Perona Farms which is in Andover.  You might like that as well.  If you have any questions or need any more information feel free to message me. Happy Searching Laughing

Rutgers garden rents a space.  I don’t know if that’s too far for you.

I hope this is what you’re looking for –rustic, outdoor but still modern!

i live in bergen county, got married in tenafly, nj and had our reception in palisades NY at the DOLCE conference center — despite the name, it’s a gorgeous place

if you’re interested in other details about this place, i’d be glad to share.

 

good luck

When is your wedding?  The Meeting House in waterloo village has a similar rustic feel to a barn I think…the village itself is currently closed down(though I think it’s supposed to reopen soon) due to state budget reasons but I’m not sure if you can still hold events in The Meeting House which is a bit seperate from the village proper is next to a small church that is run seperately and still has an active congregation.

dmp77, just curious how expensive was Liberty House?  I was thinking about going there because I’m also looking for a nice simple location.  I visited their website and was planning to make an appt but if it’s too pricey no point in wasting time.  Thanks and good luck.  Who would’ve thought venue searching was such an issue.  I’m about to give up but hopefully you find what you’re looking for real soon 🙂

I’m not sure of your price range (these places are on the higher price side, when I looked around $125-$150 per person for Friday nights) but the Park Ave. Club in Florham Park has a permanent tent with a view of the surrounding gardens.  The Park Savoy has outdoor and indoor space which is good if it rains.

Some people don’t realize that Colleges/Universities rent out their space.  You are really close to some beautiful and old campuses.  You may want to check out some of them. 

Let us know what you find.
