Hello fellow bees! I am recently engaged and seeking some venue suggestions!
FH and I are looking for a venue to support a ceremony and reception for a Saturday evening in Summer (June) 2018. We both seem to like ballrooms with tall windows… We got a quote from Ryland Inn for the Grand Ballroom, but the starting price (before service fees + taxes) was too high for our liking. Indian Trail Club had a fair starting price which we were willing to work with, but they unfortunately do not have any available Saturdays in June or July!
Ideally the venue would:
1. Be located in North/Central New Jersey (Bergen, Passaic, Morris, Sommerville, Essex, Union counties)
2. Have a starting price no more than $150 pp (before service fees and taxes)
3. Have a similar style to Ryland Inn/Indian Trial Club (photos attached)
4. Be available on a Saturday evening – maybe Friday evening or Sunday daytime
All suggestions are welcome!

Good luck on your search! Here are a few that come to mind:
Crytal Plaza http://crystalplazagroup.com/crystal-plaza/ definitely has the windows you like!
Park Savoy Estate https://www.theparksavoy.com/
It’s Warren County, but David’s Country Inn is affordable from what I hear http://www.davidscountryinn.com/index2.php#/multi-text_3/1/
Westmount Country Club http://www.westmountcc.com/

Have you tried searching on Partyspace.com? You narrow down the venue choices by location, style, and there’s even a calendar to see only the venues that are available on your wedding date. It was really useful for us when we first started looking because there were just too many options in the Philly area to comb through!

The Westmount Country Club is beautiful my Future Sister-In-Law got married there.
The Estate at Farrington Lake is gorgeous with a beautiful outside but it is in Middlesex County.
Hope this helps! Good luck!

We are getting married at the Black Bear Golf Club in Franklin NJ in October 2018. The windows are not as tall as you are looking for, but the windows still let in such beautiful natural light. The cocktail hour space (which is available to your guests all night) has beautiful tall windows that really show off the amazing mountain view. There is also an awesome outdoor lounge area with couches and a firepit. Aside from all of this, the price is AMAZING, even for a peak season Saturday night. Not to mention you get two free nights at the Minerals Spa resort. I would definitely recommend!

dantine17 : Hey Dantine17, we actually rounded up the best venues in Morris County, NJ which you can see here: http://www.guidajewelers.com/morris-county-wedding-guide-vol-1-venues/.
Some great ballrooms in NJ, though, are: the Madison Hotel in Morristown, The Park Savoy Estate in Florham Park, and Birchwood Manor in Whippany. Hope this helps!
