Park Avenue Club
My wife and I had our reception at the Park Avenue Club during the time of Storm Sandy. Though our church that was only 2 towns over lost power, this venue was fortunately unaffected and completely took our friends and family by surprise. My wife and I saved so much time and money while receiving the highest of quality service and planning by the Park Avenue Club.
The best and most important aspect of our wedding reception was the hors d'oeuvres. Our family's top favorite foods were the lamb chops, clams, and the butternut squash soup shots. My wife and I chose the filet mignon and it was just the right color of pink and was the perfect dinner for a perfect reception. And last but not least, their stock of liquor is even more reason to have designated drivers assigned by the end of your reception.
Our wedding planner, Ms. Inez Bennett, went above and beyond when planning for our wedding. When my wife wanted a second tasting for the cocktail hour, Inez organized a second tasting within days and left no hor d'oeuvre behind. Inez's hospitality as a catering manager extended even all the way to her household when our church didn't have power to set up flowers the night before our wedding. With the timing of Storm Sandy and the loss of power all throughout NJ, we would have been at a vast disadvantage if it were not for the beautiful and hospitable Park Avenue Club and the professional yet charismatic demeanors of Inez Bennett and Mauricio Basurco, both highly recommended catering managers.
For future brides and grooms that are looking for class, elegance and a warm atmosphere for family and loved ones to experience during your wedding day, my wife and I highly recommend the Park Avenue Club. If you can manage to have both Inez Bennett and Mauricio Basurco as a part of your wedding reception, you will have the "A-team" of wedding receptions.
We could not have be happier on our wedding day! The Park Avenue Club is a beautiful space, and they took care of every detail meticulously. The space for our ceremony was beautiful. As our guests exited the ceremony space they were greeted with a cocktail and a lavish and absolutely delicious cocktail hour spread. We then moved to the large tented space on the lower level for the reception. Every single guest raved about the food and the beauty and spaciousness of the space. The highlight for us was absolutely the service. Mauricio, our Maitre’D, Manny, our Captain, and Nicole, my Bridal Attendant, all stood our for their attentiveness. Inez, the Catering and Events manager, was such a pleasure to work with and took all of the stress out of planning for our wedding. She attended to each and every detail so that we were able to relax and enjoy our wedding - such a treat! We highly recommend the Park Avenue Club for your wedding or event.
It was such a blessing to have gotten a chance to work with the Inez and everyone from the Park Avenue Club. My wife and I had our ceremony and reception at Park Avenue Club this past October, and it was just an incredible experience.
From the planing phase.. Inez was very calm and was very accommodating to the smallest requests. My wife and I both work in New York City so it was difficult to meet Inez in Madison NJ, but we always worked it out somehow.
The experience and passion that Inez and everyone at Park Ave Club bring to the table is amazing, and ultimately produced a beautiful wedding that shocked everyone. Even though there were so many external factors that affected our wedding, from unexpected traffic congestion to weather issues, all the staff calmly made sure our wedding was executed perfectly.
The cocktail hour food was exceptional. I personally had to get second and thirds because I couldn't believe how good the food was (the corned beef meat station was unbelievable). And guests were so happy with the service and the quality of the food. So many people came up to me and told me that it was the best food they've ever had at a wedding! And of course this made us very very happy...
When we entered the reception hall.. It was like something we've never seen before. It looked 100x better than we imagined.. All the lighting and the decorations that were coordinated with our florist really made everything perfect.
Our parents were really impressed with their service and couldn't believe how incredibly alert everyone was to delivery exceptional service. It's safe to to say that everyone involved in planning this wedding would highly recommend Park Avenue Club as the perfect wedding venue.
The food, the staff, and the interior/exterior decoration and ambiance is all perfect and a great formula for an amazing wedding!
Thank you Park Avenue Club!
The Park Avenue Club is an elegant and beautiful venue. The moment that we first saw it, my husband and I knew that this was where we wanted to have our wedding. Our day turned out to be all that we hoped for and more. From start to finish, it was an absolutely perfect day. Our family and friends are still talking about it & have said that it was one of the best, if not the best, wedding that they had ever been to. The food at the cocktail hour was amazing. Our guests loved our NY Yankee ice sculpture and the shrimp display looked fantastic. The dinner was absolutely delicious. Our guests told us that they didn't have to wait very long for drinks, if at all. I can't imagine everything going any better. Each of the staff members who worked that evening was absolutely fantastic!!
In addition, it is my belief that our day went off perfectly because of Inez Bennett. From the day that we first looked at PAC and met Inez, she was a true professional and at the same time, a friend. She answered every question that we had along the way, helped us to find the most amazing florist, DJ and photographer -- all who were absolutely perfect for us. Along the way, Inez was there to help ease the typical wedding planning stress as well. On our wedding day, she was there with us the whole way, easing nerves, checking that our bridal party, friends & family were comfortable and making sure that everything was perfect during the cocktail hour and reception. Never once did my husband or I want or need for anything because Inez had already taken care of it.
Amazing, amazing venue!!!!
The Park Avenue Club exceed our expectations. We wanted a venue that was different than a hotel or catering hall. The Park Avenue is just that. It is a beautiful reception venue with much understated beauty. Working with the staff at the Park Avenue was a wonderful experience. They were attentive, knowledgeable, and eager to help in any way. They were very accommodating to every request we had and really made us feel comfortable with every decision we made. I would highly recommend the Park Avenue Club to anyone.
We had our wedding at the Park Avenue Club on 8/11/12. When I walked in for the first time, I got such a warm and positive feeling from all the people working there. It seems like a big family! When I heard that the Park Avenue Club is a non-profit organization and the proceeds go to several wonderful local charities, I was SOLD! We had such a wonderful experience working with Inez, and she was always so helpful and on top of things, every step of the way. Inez has clearly had a great deal of experience in weddings and had lots of special, creative ideas to add to the already wonderful things happening at the Park Avenue Club. Things ran so smoothly on the day of the wedding, and our guests couldn't stop raving about how beautiful the Park Avenue Club is, how amazing the food was, and how friendly and helpful all the staff were towards them. I would DEFINITELY recommend this venue to anyone for their wedding or other event.
We couldn't have been happier with our home town post-destination wedding celebration at the Park Avenue Club. Daniel was amazing to work with, and all of our guests were impressed both with the venue and, especially to our delight, the food.
Park Avenue Club was amazing from the start! They were always willing to accommodate our requests for the wedding reception. They provided top quality service and were attentive to our every need that day and the months leading up to the wedding. They go well out of their way to make sure your special day is an amazing one. I highly suggest looking at this place, as you will be blown away by the beauty of the venue as well. Food is absolutely outstanding too! Made our day spectacular and we continue to receive compliments about it!!
From the moment I walked into the main ballroom at Park Avenue Club I fell in love. It is not the typical NJ wedding venue, which made me love it even more. The first meeting I had was with the executive director and he made us feel so comfortable and we got along so well that I ended up inviting him to the wedding!! From the first day of planning their wedding coordinators were there to answer all of my questions and take care of all the concerns I had. The day of the wedding ran so smoothly that it was the best day of my life!! All of my guests said it was the best wedding they ever attended and there was not one complaint (even about the food which is strange for a large Italian family). Anyone looking for a unique site should book at Park Avenue Club! Also, all proceeds are donated among 11 different causes. It felt amazing knowing this and having such a fantastic day.
I cannot begin to say how incredibly happy we were with the Park Avenue Club for our wedding. We fell in love with it the first time seeing the main ballroom area - it is so different from other North Jersey venues - which is why we loved it. Its like a beautiful open white tented space with these gorgeous chandliers and just the perfect size/layout. Everyone there is absolutely amazing to work with! They never say no - whatever you want or need, they can accomodate it. The service was outstanding and the food was just amazing! All of our guests had nothing but great things to say about it - and we both have big families who have been to a ton of weddings, and can be critical. Food and Service were extremely important to us and they completely delivered on both! From Jennifer and Michael in the Catering department to Troy the Food & Beverage manager - they were all just wonderful people. The nice bonus of this place is they are associated with 11 local charities and there profits go to the community - so they are not out to get you for the money or as a wedding factory - they pride themselves on their reputation as a private dining facility. Think elegant, classy, beautiful - if that's what you are looking for - definitely worth checking out!
I would highly recommend having your wedding or next even here. I was very happy with the outcome.
