Hi NJ Bees!
Recently stumbled across the venue Waterwitch Club in Highlands NJ and it has just the PERFECT feel to me. And old historic home, sort of Hamptons-y feel. It looks just lovely.
Has anyone checked it out or gotten married there? The only sticky point is that the website says the party needs to be over by 9pm … feels SO early! That’s kind of a bummer to me, so I’m wondering if they’re strict about it?
OR, does anyone know anything simialr to this venue? I’d love to rent a old home for our day.

I went to a wedding there, and it was lovely. It was perfect for the hip-and-dreamy vibe the couple was looking for, and I really was happy to finally go to a wedding in New Jersey that wasn’t held in a banquet hall or a hotel ballroom (nothing wrong with those venues, but I really wanted to experience the kind of wedding that is so popular in blogs and magazines these days).
It’s located in a wealthy residential area – the ceremony was on the lawn, and through the shrubbery I could see a house about 50 yards away. Music levels also have to be low – I spent a lot of time during the reception on the back patio and on the lawn, and I hardly could hear any music. The DJ stopped at 9 p.m., on the dot. So yes, they’re very strict about the early end time. But honestly, the beauty of the surroundings is wasted after dark.
A Waterwitch wedding was posted on Green Wedding Shoes this week – have a look!

Thank you so much for your insight! We’re booking it, and I’m very excited. 🙂 Regardless of the early stop time, it’s too beautiful of a venue to pass up. SO happy to hear your loved a wedding you went to there!

magazinegirl37: Can you tell me what the venue cost is? I think it may be out of our price range, but I’d really like to know just in case. I emailed Mark, but he wanted me to call him. No point in going there if it’s completely out of range.

I’m also am curious what the venue cost is if you could potentially email me as well?

Water Witch was $6600 for the venue fee… but they allow the entire week for set-up, so during the day no limitations except 9:30pm cut off time.
