Outdoor wedding venues NJ - both ceremony & reception -- please help!

Hi :)  We are looking for a non-traditional wedding venue in NJ.  We do not want the typical banquet/hotel style reception.  We are looking for something different and unique.  Ideally the reception can be held outside.  Size will be around 165.  Looking between May-Sept.  Any suggestions would be great!

  • What part of New Jersey are you looking for? There are a few wineries in New Jersey that offer non-traditional options.

  • Crossed Keys Inn in Andover is a tented reception and you can have your ceremony in the garden.  I really liked it but it was a little more than we wanted to spend.  You have to rent your own bathrooms and bring in your own alcohol.

    Try Ravello in East Hanover. 1 wedding at a time.  


  • Check out Lake Vahalla Club in Montville it's an awesome place if youre looking for nontraditional. I checked it out but it was too nontraditional for me! But, I hosted my my wedding room block in June 2011 at the Hyatt Morristown and LOVED it. I know they provide shuttle service w their rate and I bet they'd go to Lake Vahalla Club or even Ravello's! The girl I worked with was Christine if you're interested!
  • We're doing an outdoor tent on the golf course at the Upper Montclair Country Club in Clifton, the grounds are gorgeous and you can make it all your own. good luck!

  • I can't say enough good things about the venue I recently got married at, Windows on the Water at Frogbridge in Millstone Township.  There is a ballroom full of windows with a patio by water and a gorgeous tent.. you can chose where you want the cocktail hour and the reception.  We had the reception under the tent.  We got married at a church, but there is a really nice outdoor area for an ceremony.  They have two bridal shows there, usually one in fall and one in spring.  I definitely recommend you go.
