Hi! I am a PA bride looking to get married in NY or NJ because most of my family lives in Westchester county and Long Island. Since I'm OOT and will be heading into the NY and NJ area soon to look at venues, I wanted to narrow our choices down as much as possible and see you have any venue suggestions that I may have missed.
A little info about our wedding: We are anticipating about 170-230 people, and our budget per person is about $250pp (this is slightly flexible, but we would of course love to find something lower than this price if possible! haha
). We would like to get married on a Saturday in either October or early April, but we are very flexible with the date. The "look" or "feel" that we are going for is elegant and classic with a bit of a "wow" factor. We would also love it if the venue only hosted one event per day, but this is not a deal-breaker.
Our list so far includes Oheka Castle (from what I've read/researched, it MAY be in our budget if we do it off-peak...we also know about the site fee), Bourne Mansion, Glen Island Harbour Club, The Park Savoy (New Jersey), the Estate at Florentine Gardens (New Jersey), and the Inn at New Hyde Park.
I'm looking for any feedback on food, price, overall look and feel, etc. of these places OR any new suggestions. Thank you in advance! I really appreicate the help!
