If you are planning on having a wedding in New Jersey, you have an amazing amount of unique wedding venue options to pick from. From Ballrooms, to Country Clubs, and from, gardens to wineries and ballrooms. There is something in Jersey for everyone! Some of my favorites are below!

Grounds for Sculpture

Grounds for Sculpture Wedding

Talk about a unique venue and a New Jersey wedding venue with character, you should most certainly look into Grounds for Sculpture for your wedding. The restaurant, Rats, is a beautiful setting for your sit down dinner with views of the sculpture grounds and a really nice pond that gets covered in fog. If you aren't into a rustic setting, they also have a raw space in their art gallery that is set inside the sculpture gardens.

TPC Jasna Polana

Jasna Polana Wedding

Hands down, one of the most stunning venues in Central New Jersey. Located in Princeton New Jersey, Jasna Polana is the home of a nationally recognized golf course. Aside from the golf course, when you drive through the thick woods you finally arrive at the massive estate property. The bridal suite is larger than most houses, and its pretty tough to take your eyes off of the 18 person marble jacuzzi recessed into the marble floor of the bathroom. The grounds around the property are perfectly manicured with features like wrought iron fences, and a reflection lake. The reception takes places inside what was the old pool house, but since has been filled in and now is a stunning ballroom with 360 degree windows over looking the lake and 18th hole of the golf course.

The Palace at Somerset Park

The Palace at Somerset Park is a venue that has so much space, that if you are having a wedding, you would never know that there could be a 300 person wedding on the other side. They planned the design of this venue for over a decade and made it possible for both wedding receptions to have their own parking lots, gardens, lounge areas, ballrooms, bridal suits, bathrooms, ceremony sites etc, and you would never see a single person from the other wedding. INSANE! The venue itself is absolutely stunning with grand lobby's opening into massive ballrooms of elegance.

Windows on the Water

When I first arrived at this venue I was blown away by the scenery. From the tented ballroom, you always have a view of the beautiful lake that cuts across the property. Not to mention you can have your ceremony directly on their landscaped patio directly next to the lake. The great part about this venue is that it provides some amazing locations for portraits. You can grab a golf cart and cruise around the property to open fields, a beautiful forest, a walking bridge, the list goes on.
