 I don’t know if this is a possible wedding venue, but the Cloisters and Ft. Tyron Park is a beautiful place.  There is a cute cafe up there, New Leaf Cafe, that you could ask to rent out.

Have you considered The Manor in West Orange, NJ?  I’m not sure of the pricing details, but I heard it is relatively affordable and it offers an outdoor space for ceremony and indoor/outdoor space for reception – the only thing is the dinner part of the reception would most likely need to be indoors – but might be worth a look.  Good luck!

Hi there,

Blue Hill is not in your price range and The Liberty House might be if you do a buffet. In Northern NJ, for that price, you might want to consider a Friday or Sunday event.

Checkout Mayfair Farms in West Orange, NJ. They might be in your price range. I’m not sure how many guests you have, but for small weddings I’ve heard great things about Bubby’s in Brooklyn.

Good luck!

Highlawn Pavilion is very within your price range (you have to acct for tax+tip=27%!).

 Don’t know how "unique" it is . . . but the view is unbelievable and food is amazing.

I agree about Liberty House – MIGHT be in your price range if you are doing a daytime buffet, but a nighttime seated meal is almost $200 a head with tax.  I am having mine at the Chart House in Weehawken which over looks the skyline, its gorgeous. However, I am not sure about an outdoor ceremony.

i’m getting married at Harbor Links out in Port Washington.  I’m having a Saturday evening wedding.  The ceremony will be outdoors by the gazebo and the cocktail hour will be in the tent.  The venue is only one wedding at a time and the price is within the price range you specified above.  You can check out the website but you really need to see it in person.  They do free tastings if your undecided.  Plus, when i booked they had a promotion with american airlines so my fiance and i got a voucher to travel anywhere in the continental US for free.  let me know if you have any questions.

Liberty House is where my sister got married.  Its gorgeous but pricey.  Danielle is the banquet manager there and she is the BEST to deal with.

Look into the club on 3 West 51 Street.  It has a ballroom, an upstairs sun room type thing, and a terrace that overlooks St. Patricks.  It was also one of the most reasonably priced.  If I had stayed in NY we were going to do our wedding there, most likely.

try central park Conservancy, it’s $400 to have a 30 minute ceremony then have your guests eat at a restaurant; I saw it when I was booking time for my wedding photos
