Many couples ask us which venue would we choose for a wedding day. In NJ its simple. There are so many amazing wedding venues in NJ that its hard to choose from. We will give you a list of our top ten wedding venues of New Jersey. How did we put this list together? Well... we have been filming since 1992. From that time until now we get invited to weddings quite often, duh! and this list of NJ's best wedding venues is a reflection how frequently we are there, how photogenic the location is and is there a location near the venue that can also be used for photographs. By these criteria we put this list together.
1. The Venetian
546 River Drive, Garfield, NJ • 973-546-2250
We are invited to The Venetian very frequently. They have a bazzillion bucks invested into their new ballroom. Lights, decor, you name it. The space is incredible, and we love space at PSPi. We film weddings with tele lenses such as 70-200mm 85mm f/1.2 135mm 200mm etc. At The Venetian, during the first dance, once the smoke or snow comes on, its done. Award winning image. And video:)
Effortlessly elegant and timeless. The Venetian's only requirement is your presence. Upon entering the cultivated beauty and grandeur of the palatial lobby you are greeted with Italian marble, majestic columns and 35 foot cathedral ceilings. Be assured that every detail of your exceptional day is addressed in our quest to maintain a legacy of extraordinary service. Our facility is designed to meet a wide variety of clientele needs with event space providing an exquisite setting ranging from the most private gathering to a celebration on a grand scale.
The Rockleigh is another NJ Wedding Venue we simply love. Its all about space. We can do so much there its incredible. We would recommend you plan about 90-120 min for artistic shots. There are many incredible locations inside and outside. A photographer with the right vision... (PSPi) would love it here.
