Crystal Springs (Sarah, the wedding planner) did an amazing job. They were incredibly flexible and even set up indoors and outdoors for the ceremony because of the possibily of rain. (It ended up being outside which I was really happy about, of course). Sarah also made sure to accommodate my very annoying gluten allergy. The venue was perfect, the day was unforgettable and I would not have a changed a thing. Also, Russel, the maitre d' was seriously AMAZING!

We have golfed at Crystal Springs for 4 years and when we got engaged this was the first location we looked at and we fell in love.

During the planning process our coordinator, was very responsive and always got back to me in a timely manner. I enjoyed working with them during the planning process, however, I found that on the weekend of our wedding it seemed that they were more interested in giving tours of the grounds to other potential brides and grooms than in actually being around to help us. We were also told that they only do one event on the day of our wedding, however, that morning I came to find out that there was a charity golf event going on and that our vendors wouldn't set up until 5 (our wedding was at 5). Our Maitre D, Russell, was the BEST. He was soo sweet and super helpful!

Food: The food is amazing!!! Everything from the drinks at the ceremony, the food at cocktail hour and all of the food and desserts during the reception were perfect. The only things we noticed were that the wedding cake we chose at the tasting was different than what we had our reception, we had the platinum package which includes top shelf alcohol but when we ordered drinks the alcohol was not top shelf, they wouldn't serve us, the bartenders were inconsistent (served some people shots but told others that they did not serve shots, only alcohol on the rocks).

The grounds: The grounds are BEAUTIFUL! The wedding garden was absolutely gorgeous, however during the ceremony there were hotel guests (not part of our wedding) that were standing and watching our whole ceremony. This isn't that big of a deal but unfortunately they are in the background of a lot of the photos. Our photographer said this was one of the most beautiful places he had ever shot a wedding and all of our guests continue to tell us how amazing and gorgeous the entire hotel is. They have something for everyone (spa, golf, put put, large outdoor chess, the Biosphere - which is AMAZING).

I loved our venue from the start! It was breathtakingly beautiful and had everything we were looking for. The food was excellent and most of the people we worked with were very helpful. Steve, our mater d was so great! Anything we needed, he provided! The staff throughout the reception was great. My guests all seemed happy and to enjoy the night! I wish there was some more flexibility and understanding with small details the day of from other people we worked with, but overall, all was well. Also, they may want to consider price of guest rooms...a bit high, although beautiful!

There were pros and cons, like any venue but the property is gorgeoous and the wedding coordinators are very helpful. The room blocks were a bit of a nightmare but it all worked out in the end. The food was just amazing, SO much better than at our tasting. The Maitre D was just incredible and anticipated every question or request we had. The hotel rooms were lovely and very comfortable.

we got married at the crystal springs country club and it was just the perfect wedding venue for us. it's so hard to find a venue in new jersey with lots of outdoor space that feels like a true getaway from new york city (we work there and living hoboken). the land is gorgeous and the ballroom is simply the best in the state. it feels grand without looking gaudy or too modern. the hotel is attached to the venue as well, which was a huge perk. the venue and hotel are on the pricey side but it's honestly so well run and so beautiful that it's worth the cost. we had about 200 people and there was plenty of space for a huge dance floor and to spread the tables out so they were not on top of each other. peggy (the wedding coordinator) was quick to answer our many, many emails in the weeks prior and she was fantastic on the day of.

We got married at Ballyowen Golf Club at Crystal Springs. It was wonderful. From the moment we saw the place we knew it was perfect for us and what we were looking for (an outside feel, but not outside). The price was fantastic as far as NJ standards go and what you are getting in return. They were very helpful through the planning process and were more than amazing on the day of! One of the most fun parts of the day was taking the golf carts out for photographs on the property. The food was great! Better than our tasting (which we had at Crystal Springs) and the cake was the best I've ever eaten! I don't know where the cake was from, but know it was a local bakery and phenomenal! Everything was beautiful.
We had our guests stay at Minerals Resort and Spa. We stayed at Grand Cascades Lodge (which was a good decision! Minerals is fun for groups and kids - lots to do and places to hang out together. But NOT for the wedding night, or a good nights sleep.)
