Are glamor and opulence the words you’re using to describe your wedding throughout the planning process? Then you’ll need a venue that effectively delivers the over-the-top aesthetic you’re looking for! The Venetian in Garfield, NJ, is an incredible event center. They showcase world-class in-house catering, unforgettably lavish decor, and plenty of space for an epic guest list. I’ve put together some info as to what makes a wedding at The Venetian in NJ an impressive place for a wedding unrivaled by any other. Check it out below!
The Venetian is known for its spectacle and grandeur. It’s a fantastic place for couples dreaming of a fanciful, jaw-dropping event with indoor fountains, majestic chandeliers, and an elegant courtyard. While some banquet rooms can be borderline tacky with their excessive decor, every detail of The Venetian is carefully curated to create an environment reminiscent of a historic grand ballroom with all the modern amenities of a contemporary event space.
Imagine your guests arriving for your wedding and receiving a glass of Champagne garnished with fresh strawberries and edible flowers served by a butler. It’s the ultimate way to set the scene for an epically elegant wedding you and your guests will never forget.
If you choose to have your ceremony at The Venetian, it will occur in a gorgeous, long room with full-length windows on one wall and bold mirrors on the other. Gold Chiavari chairs line either side of the sleek marble aisle to accommodate up to 300 guests. There are details like opulent drapes and ornate ceiling moldings for an extra touch of elegance. With your own decorative touches, the room transforms into a stunningly romantic space worthy of vowing to spend the rest of your life with your partner.
Weather permitting, you can also hold your ceremony in the Italian-inspired garden courtyard. Exchange your vows in front of their waterfall feature with your guests in a beautiful, private, and tranquil setting surrounded by tropical trees and flowers. The courtyard is also an excellent space for a sunset cocktail hour.
The Grand Ballroom showcases spectacular chandeliers, lofted ceilings, and colorful lighting for your reception. There’s a balcony perfect for wedding portraits, a stylish bar, and a large dance floor where guests can dance the night away. It certainly lives up to its Grand title, and if you’re looking for a venue where you and your partner can feel like royalty all day, this may be the spot for you.
The Venetian has a beautiful array of locations for gorgeous wedding photos, whether you are dreaming of indoor or outdoor backgrounds. Their intimate courtyard, fountain, and gardens are ideal for pictures featuring greenery and a sunset’s glow. Inside, however, we’ll be able to take some beautiful and glamorous shots of you and your partner. You’ll be standing beneath their unique chandeliers, alone on the spacious dance floor lit with romantic lighting. And, you’ll also be standing on their show-stopping spiral staircase with wrought iron railings and marble steps. We’ll go big to ensure we capture the most extraordinary pictures for you and your partner!
