Hi! I haven’t looked into this at all but when I went to visit the Skylands Castle in Ringwood, they let us drive down to their chapel. The chapel itself is right by Sheperd Lake. It’s very clean and we noticed people picnicking and canoeing. This link provides some info on the Sheperd Lake recreation area. I think I took some pictures of the lake while we were there so if I can find them, I’ll PM you. Good luck!

Have you looked into Rutgers Gardens, in New Brunswick?


It’s a very nice spot for a wedding, actually. There are beautiful gardens with lots of great spots for a ceremony, a covered pavillion with a big fireplace, a giant lawn where you could play croquet, bocce or frisbee golf, a pretty little woods where you could take pictures. There’s nowhere to swim, but the place is bordered by the Raritan river, so there is water around. 

I’m not sure about costs or details, but I used to see lots of weddings there when I walked my dog in the little forest. It’s worth looking into.

Good luck with your venue search.  What you are looking for sounds like what I would like to do for a rehearsal/welcome dinner.  I still have not decided on a place.

Hi!! I am getting married at an awesome place called Chanteclaire Farm in Deep Creek Lake, MD…It’s only about 1.5 hours from Pittsuburgh, so while it would be somewhat of a destination wedding, it might not be too bad. Deep Creek Lake in general has all of the things that you are looking for and Chanteclaire Farm is a wedding facility there with a barn!  Check it out at http://www.chanteclairefarm.com!  Good luck!
