The Palace is beautiful from the moment you drive up to the venue. We knew instantly that we wanted to have our wedding at The Palace and are very excited for our wedding day! The staff is very attentive and responds quickly to any questions. They also provide a planner who will help with any questions you may have and also helps you set up all the specifics of the wedding day! I cannot wait for our wedding in March so I can write another review about how fabulous this venue is!

Breathtaking! From the day we started searching for the perfect venue, I couldn't stop looking up The Palace! Our First tour & meeting with Christie I was in total awe! I knew this is where we would be getting married. It was my husband’s response that made it official. Hour later an email was sent to Christie & our wedding date was booked! Michelle, our planner was very quick at getting back to me & was always able to assist with anything first through emails. It was a pleasure meeting her at the Food Tasting. This was OUT OF THIS WORLD! My parents kept expressing how beautiful it was, it was done just like a mini intimate wedding. Everyone through the planning of our event was accommodating, friendly and helpful! The afternoon before our wedding we got the pleasure of meeting our Maitre D’ RICHARD! He was awesome, He knew exactly where, how & why I wanted things a specific way & he made sure they were done just how I always imagined. The day of, I was greeted and welcomed by STEPHANIE. She is a sweetheart! She will be there to assist you every moment you need from making sure your veil does not move from your hair, from helping with a quick dress change, to making sure you never go thirsty or hungry all night! Every Bride & Groom always say they wish they got to eat and enjoy the food a little more, well we both can easily say we got to enjoy each course!! We couldn’t be more appreciative of this special touch; Richard had the kitchen pack up each entrée and 3 CONTAINERS of desserts for us to take home and enjoy! The entire evening was a night which I won’t ever forget and I have the Palace and their staff to thank for that! They hold a tight ship, but let me tell you as a bride you would not want it any other way! I will forever look back at our wedding night and describe it as perfect! Thank you all so much for making my groom and I feel like royalty! All our love, Mr. & Mrs. January 8, 2016 <3

I got married at the Palace on 12/31/15. From the day my now husband and I walked into the Palace when we first went to go see it we knew this was the one. We loved everything about it and never wanted to leave when we were there. They are so helpful and accommodating. My wedding planner Cristina Nunez was absolutely amazing, I loved her! She was so nice, professional and would answer all of my emails in a timely matter. She was very cautious of my allergies and needs. The food is absolutely phenomenal. All of my guests said they have never been to a wedding with so much food – and great food. I cannot say enough kind words for my Maitre’ D David. He made our wedding day and night go so seamlessly and because of him everything was on time and perfect and for that we thank you tremendously! I also loved my bridal attendants! They were extremely helpful and with me every step of the way that day. Not to mention they helped my sister with my most difficult bustle! I can honestly say every detail was taken care of and I never had to worry about a thing the day of the wedding. I highly recommend booking your wedding at the Palace not only is the place phenomenal in and of itself but also the people that work there are as well. Now I wish to be on the other side one day and get to be a guest there one day!

My experience at the palace was phenomenal. The planner (Michelle Malave) was very attentive and always available to answer all my crazy questions as well as attend to all my needs including provision of meal choices to meet my cultural needs. Josh (the maitre D) and Gina (my bridal attendant) truly made my day. These two amazing people deserve a big fat raise!!! Josh was right on track with his organizational skills and made the whole event go smoothly without a glitch. He was attentive to my needs and did his best cracking up jokes to calm me down when I was upset. Gina, omg! I can't stop saying how nice and calm she was. Thumbs up to Gina AKA Ms. Versatile. I don't remember seeing her sit to catch her breath for a second. Mind you, I had a 22foot long train and she did not oblige but carried my train wherever i went until I changed into my next attire for the reception.
Regarding the food, all my guests talked about how good the food was and how beautiful the palace was. Overall, I would give the palace a 10star if I could. Special thanks to Josh and Gina for making my day a success. Luv u guys!!!

We had the most incredible experience with the Palace from the beginning to the very end. We started off working with Jose. He was very professional and explained everything in detail to us. We were extremely impressed by the elegance of the venue and found the food options to be gourmet and extensive. We signed the contract the next day and didn't bother looking at any more venues. Alex was our event planner. She was a pleasure to deal with. She was very punctual with all our email questions and kept us updated on the various timelines in preparation for our wedding. The days leading up to our wedding we met with Josh, our maitre'd. He took the time to sit down with us and go over every detail of the ceremony and reception. The day of our wedding was everything we dreamed of and more. We truly felt like royalty. From the moment we stepped out of the limo bus we were greeted by Josh and my bridal attendant Latonja and were catered to every step of the way. We had a rather large group and they were all extremely impressed with the level of service and professionalism presented by Josh and Latonja. Josh promised plenty of food in the bridal suite and we got that and more! I cannot thank Latonja enough for everything she did that night for us. The heel of my shoe broke and within minutes she had it repaired. She bustled my dress after the ceremony within seconds to maximize my time. She made sure we eat, drank and had a good time. She packed all of our things at the end of the night so nicely including a "doggy bag" with extra dinners for us. This woman is AMAZING at her job to say the least! I also want to thank Gina, the assistant bridal attendant. Gina was also a lot of help. I wish I could give the Palace more than a 5 star rating because that is what they deserve. My guests were extremely impressed by the venue, the quality of the food and the design. Thank you to everyone at the Palace who made our wedding wishes come true!

From the moment we started inquiring about The Palace, everyone we dealt with was super friendly and accommodating. This made the already stressful wedding process so much easier to deal with. We visited a few other venues in the Central Jersey location, but we would always come back to The Palace. When we would compare the venues and what they offered, there was never any question of who we should and wanted to book with. Our event planners, Christie and Alex were awesome. From our meetings to follow-up questions we had or clarification we needed, they always answered us promptly and were so friendly in the process. Our Maitre D and Bridal Attendant, Richard and Jillian respectively, were amazing. From our first meeting, they were true professionals, efficient, and so nice and fun to deal with. This carried out to our big day. Jillian and Richard were always checking up on us and making sure we and everything was okay. They allowed us to just enjoy our day and be in the moment instead of having to worry about the details of the day!

All of our vendors had already done weddings at The Palace and our florist stated that it was the most organized venue that it ever dealt with. The Palace is truly outstanding from it's gorgeous venue, superb staff, delectable food, and amazing service. We were always impressed with The Palace but nothing tops having our own wedding there. They truly treated us like royalty.

My husband and I were extremely happy and pleased with how everything was for our wedding reception in mid October 2015. My expectations were way beyond surpassed and I couldn't be happier with how wonderful the food and schedule and everything went! Our Maitre D, David, and Bridal Attendant, Jill, were also absolutely WONDERFUL! David really made sure everything ran smoothly and was there with my husband's *special request* delicious French fries made in olive oil! Jill really helped me stay calm and came to the rescue when my bussle and strap kept breaking on my dress! Our event planner, Michelle, was great in helping us to get to this spectacular event, answering any and every email and phone call my mom and I had, and really trying to accommodate all our requests. I really can't say enough how wonderful and beautiful everything was, thank you to the Palace for your hard work in making sure our wedding was everything and more than we could have ever wanted! I know it can be a bit pricey, especially if you're on a budget, but they are worth every penny and I would definitely recommend the Palace for a wedding!

The Palace was above and beyond anything I could have imagined for our wedding. We had Michelle as our planner (wonderful!), Josh as our maitre d' (amazing!), and Latonja as our bridal attendant (fantastic!). Everyone was so professional and on top of their game that our night was absolutely wonderful. Thank you to all of the staff who did such an amazing job--you made our wedding even more special!

Everything ran according to plan, there was no stress (unusual, since I'm admittedly very type-A), and our guests are still raving about what they're calling "the best wedding ever'! We couldn't agree more--this was the best wedding ever. The food was some of the best we've ever had--we wish we could go back for dinner one night--and our wedding cake (devils food with cannoli cream filling) was delicious and everyone loved it. I can't recommend the Palace highly enough to prospective brides. I work in event management and thought all of the 5 star reviews were too good to be true, but this is honestly the best venue I've ever worked with. I wish we could get married again just to have another reception at the Palace!
