This is a newer venue in North NJ that I think looks really nice! 




 I have also heard nice things about the Stone House, but I think that’s less casual.


You could also look into places like the Montclair Art Museum, Grounds for Sculpture, and places like that. I was married outside at the Newark Museum with the reception inside.

@CakeyP:  OMG 165 is A LOT!!!  That is so ridiculous!!   

I loved the newark museum.  It was kind of expensive, but you can make it less expensive by using a cheaper caterer.  (they give you a list)  It was super convenient for our traveling guests, and the hotel from penn station ran a shuttle to the wedding. I’ll send you a link to my photos.

If Fiance would have let our traveling distance go a bit further north, I had my heart set on this place.









They also have outside area for a tent! And the venue rental fee (which is actually a donation) is super cheap (to me at least).

My friend is getting married at a winery on Long Island. There are several there, but I forgot the name of the one she is getting married at.

I had a work christmas party at the Newark Club and it was amazing — beautiful city view



not exactly a barn (or actually about the opposite of one…) but its not your typical ballroom

@CakeyP:   Have you looked at Ramsey Country Club?   I sent them an inquiry and was told 75 person min.    Unfortunately, I’m only having 50 and most places in Bergen didn’t even want to talk to me with that small number.

Also Ridgewood and Englewood Woman’s clubs.

@CakeyP:  Have you looked at the Oakeside Mansion?  It’s so beautiful!  I didn’t want to do a tent and my guest list is too big for the house, but it’s so pretty!


I’m a Bergen County Bride too!  We’re getting married at the Colonial Inn in Norwood.  So far, I am so happy with my decision and they’ve been nothing but fabulous!

Have you considered TPC Jasna Polana, in Princeton, NJ?  Their Saturday evening minimum is 150-160 but you can do a Friday or Sunday brunch for 50 – 80 people. They have outdoor and indoor ceremony areas, and good food!

If you google it you’ll find links to photographer’s web sites with images – their own web site doesn’t show much beyond the golf course.
