The Knot released its list of the "10 Most Talked About New Jersey Wedding Venues" & it's an interesting read. This humble Hoboken wedding planner has some opinions on said list!
The Pleasantdale Chateau deserves a "Longstanding Most Talked About Award!" When my sister got married 12 years ago, this historic mansion & its manicured grounds were the topic of many venue conversations. I delved into wedding planning two years later & throughout my career, the Pleasantdale has remained a popular venue. I adore working there because the Pleasantdale is top notch in every way. I believe it will continue to stand the test of time with its beautiful, unique rooms & gorgeous, picturesque grounds.
On the other end of the spectrum, the W Hoboken is new & hot. It's been a big topic in Hoboken long before it opened & it continues to garner much attention. The W Hoboken is hip & swanky, yet somehow still manages to impress everyone from your old-fashioned Grandma to your hipster cousin with its impeccable space, food & service. I may not have picked it for our wedding but I enjoyed working there & I want to work there again & again. With its waterfront location & its cool factor, I hope the W Hoboken keeps Brides & Grooms talking!
Mallard Island Yacht Club, One & Only Westmount Country Club, The Palace at Somerset Park, & Stone House at Stirling Ridge- check, check, check, check!! Each venue deserves its buzz for being a bit different, a bit more fun than a standard wedding facility. Definitely talked about, definitely popular. Some are more buzzworthy than others among my circle of Brides & wedding vendors.
The other venues I haven't heard much about period. Is it just me? Liberty Science Center is practically in my backyard & I haven't overheard so much as a whisper about weddings there. I know zilch about One Atlantic but I don't deal much with Atlantic City so that may be my shortcoming. After checking out the web site & falling in love with the photos, I'm praying to the Wedding Gods for a wedding there, STAT. That could be the same case with The Addison Park & Valenzano Winery, just a tad beyond my normal scope of Northern Jersey/Manhattan venues. Still, I love to know anything & everything Jersey Weddings so I'm making a mental note of these venues.
Are any of you getting married at these "hot" venues? Or do you have a less talked about venue you prefer?
