I firmly believe a good wedding planner, and perhaps a healthy budget, can transform even an old musty barn into a magical romantic setting for the beginning of the rest of your life (after all, we accomplished just that earlier this year...minus the musty part). BUT, if by chance the stars don't quite align, it's all about LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! That's why every so often I like to highlight some of my favorite sites. The decor of certain venues and the character lying within certain historical sites can serve as the ultimate spring-board to the perfect ambiance for your event. Here's a peek at some of my favorite locations for weddings in our area:
One Atlantic, Atlantic City NJ
This fairly new venue boasts a gorgeous over-water locale with views of Atlantic City’s beach, boardwalk and enchanting casino lights. It’s chic and modern … glamour and sophistication at its best.
The Hamilton Manor, Hamilton NJ
Just opening its doors last Spring, The Hamilton Manor is holding its own offering extraordinary cathedral ceiling ballrooms and loads of modern glamour. It’s one of the largest banquet facilities in the Princeton New Jersey area.
The Historic CRRNJ Train Terminal, Jersey City NJ
Newly renovated, this breathtakingly beautiful historic location is not only stunningly charming but offers awesome views of the Hudson River and NYC Skyline. Options for out-of-this-world wedding design are simply endless. The train station is part of Liberty State Park, located in Jersey City, New Jersey.
The Venetian, Garfield NJ
Just when you thought it couldn't get any better ... this already magnificent venue further enhanced its hospitality by opening a new $16 million dollar 2,000-square-foot ballroom designed by Judd Brown Designs earlier this year. Recording artist Wyclef Jean and his wife, Claudinette, held their encore (renewed vows) in the new space just this past August. Not only is this location, in Garfield, New Jersey, gorgeous but the catering and service is impeccable.
