An elegant French-inspired chateau for timeless and classic weddings in East Brunswick, NJ.
If you’re curious about weddings at the beautiful Park Chateau Estate and Gardens you’ve come to the right place! This elegant NJ wedding venue only opened its doors in 2017 but it's one of the best known venues in NJ. I’ve had the pleasure of capturing several weddings there already and it has quickly become one of my favorite venues in New Jersey. I love how reminiscent it is of a French chateau. Having majored in French Literature in college and lived in France for a year and a half, I’m a true francophile so I love how this venue has a way of transporting anyone right into the French countryside. Not only that, but it’s a true bride’s dream… and a photographer’s dream, too!
If you’re lucky enough to have your wedding here, you should know that this venue also stands out for it’s stellar service and client experience. From gorgeous grounds to elegant bride and groom suites to a cocktail hour that is to die for and a ballroom that will impress all of your guests, this venue has it all.
As soon as you approach the estate, you know you’ve arrived somewhere very special and unlike any other venue in NJ. You’ll love the gorgeous detail on the gates to the tree-lined driveway.
Something we love about the estate is the gardens that surround it. If you plan a wedding at this venue, there is no need to go to a local park for photos. With beautiful, well-manicured grounds like these, you can stay right on site and take full advantage of everything the venue has to offer.
If you choose to get married on site, the chapel is available for a beautiful indoor wedding ceremony. There is a walkway that connects it with the venue, making it easy and comfortable to get around.
I just love how every detail of the estate reminds me of France.
What a dream! Any bride would love to get ready in this bridal suite with her bridesmaids. There is plenty of room for everyone, and even a salon for the hair and makeup stylists to set up shop.
No groom at this estate will be stuck in a dark basement room to get ready with his groomsmen! The groom’s suite here is well-lit, well-appointed, and perfectly masculine.
Throughout the chateau, you’ll find sitting rooms for your guests to gather and spend quiet moments together when they need to escape the dance floor. These areas are perfect for catching up with family and friends who have traveled far to attend your wedding.
The cocktail hour room is adjoined by the outdoor patio space so guests can easily flow from indoors to outdoors while they enjoy a bite to eat before the reception.
Once it’s time for the reception, your guests will just love the natural light in the ballroom, the high ceilings, and the wonderful elegance. The room is anchored in the center by a beautiful fireplace and mantle, a perfect backdrop for the sweetheart table.
Last but not least, the desserts! The Viennese Hour at Park Chateau is just heavenly!
Yes! Park Chateau Estate and Gardens has a beautiful and spacious bridal suite and an elegant groom suite, too. Not only is it convenient to get ready here but you will love being catered to by the staff at Park Chateau.
Park Chateau Estate has wonderful indoor and outdoor options for ceremonies. You can get married in the non-denominational chapel or outside in the gardens.
Absolutely. The grounds at Park Chateau Estate include beautiful gardens and, of course, the gorgeous architecture of the estate and chapel to use as a backdrop as well.
I recommend taking your family formals outside in the gardens if weather permits. If the weather does not allow for outdoor photos then I would recommend the sun room, the grand staircase, or the hallway leading to the ballroom.
I love the classic elegance of Park Chateau just as much as the convenience it offers by providing beautiful locations for you to get ready, exchange your vows, and celebrate your marriage all on site. I also love how well taken care of our couples are by the staff at Park Chateau.
