Imagine your own mansion for a day—for your wedding day! There are numerous benefits to hosting at an estate such as privacy. Often, they host only one wedding at a time and make it easy to have both your ceremony and reception in one luxury location.

Not only are there elegant fixtures, many mansion venues are historic with several rooms to explore and mingle. In fact, there will likely be spacious areas for the wedding party to get ready. Photo opportunities are plentiful throughout the estate and its well-maintained gardens.
Here are some of our favorite New Jersey mansion wedding venues:

There, you will enjoy the grandeur of the clubhouse, elegant ballroom, manicured landscape (with a golf course, of course) and versatile indoor and outdoor spaces to host your special event. Trenton Country Club accommodates up to 300 guests.
Stately columns, and a portico, greet you upon arrival at The Palace at Somerset Park. Take in the beauty of this 72,000 square foot Palladian-style mansion set on 30 pristine acres in Somerset Park, New Jersey.
The elegant day begins with a valet at the entrance and culminates on its beautiful ballroom that hosts up to 300 guests.
