And to think, my husband and I almost didn’t visit because we thought we’d found our place! From our initial visit to our wedding day, every moment at the Park Savoy was perfect. They take care of absolutely everything, are extremely accommodating, and an incredible value for your money. Every time I had a question, it was answered. Any time I had a special request, it was delivered on. Our guests are still raving, weeks later, at how incredible everything was – from the feast of delicious food, to the extremely accommodating staff, to the beauty of the venue itself. I could rave forever about this place, but some highlights include: 1) After our ceremony, the maitre’d swept us upstairs to the bridal suite and brought us all the things we wanted to eat. We had a good 20 minutes of private time together, which was wonderful. And we actually got to eat the food we paid for! 2) They take all the guesswork out of planning. This place is a well-oiled machine without being a wedding factory. And they deal with hundreds of couples, and yet they remember you and your preferences. This place is very personal, which is great. 3) They take beer and signature cocktail requests – we got our Brooklyn Lager and Honkers Ale, and even though they hadn’t made a Pimm’s Cup before, they Googled it and mixed up our perfect signature cocktail. They went through many bottles of Pimm’s on our wedding day because our guests loved it! 4) They threw in some complimentary stations – not that we needed more food in the end, but still. 5) The Park Savoy seems to accommodate ANY kind of wedding – we had a largely unconventional one, and they were very helpful and supportive every step of the way. Our day was absolutely perfect, and this is in large part due to the wonderful staff at the Park Savoy.
There are not enough words to describe how amazing The Park Savoy is - and it all comes down to one thing - THE STAFF. From our first meeting with Melanie, we always felt as if we were given the utmost attention throughout the wedding planning process. Melanie was always available to answer our questions, and was always very quick to respond to e-mails and phone calls.
The true magic, however, occurred on the actual day of our wedding. From the moment we arrived in the limos to the moment we left at the end of the night, we truly felt like royalty. When our limos arrived at the Park Savoy, Melanie, Dianne, Mary, Julian and Vincent all came outside to greet us - I truly felt like a princess! Dianne and Mary, our two bridal attendants, knew what I needed even before I did. When we went up to the bridal suite to take photos, Mary followed me around with a glass of ice water and helped arrange the train of my gown in all of the photos. During the cocktail hour, my husband and I chose to stay upstairs in the bridal suite so that we could enjoy the food, and Dianne and Mary went downstairs multiple times for us to arrange plates of food from the cocktail hour...it is a good thing we did this as during the reception there wasn't too much time for us to eat since we were so busy greeting our guests and dancing! Dianne and Mary are STARS - they are two of the nicest people I have ever met, and I truly enjoyed getting to know them the evening of our wedding!
Once we got downstairs to the reception, Dianne and Mary were available to us the entire evening, and they made sure that we had enough to eat and drink - they also both came in to bustle my gown after the first dance! Julian and Vincent, our maitre'ds were also absolutely wonderful. They made sure that the entire evening ran smoothly.
I would WITHOUT HESITATION recommend The Park Savoy - it is an incredible place with incredible people. Our guests are still talking about how amazing the wedding was and how outstanding the food was! Thanks to the outstanding staff, we truly had the most incredible, magical night of our lives.
I was married this past July 2013 and this review is WAY overdue. The Park Savoy made my wedding day an absolute dream come true. Besides the grounds and estate being absolutely breathtaking, the staff was such a pleasure to work with from day one. They literally will bend over backwards in order to make all of your visions come true. Seven months later and my family and friends are still talking about the wedding and how beautiful everything was. The food alone (from the cocktail hour, to the dinner, right to the dessert venetian table) was unique, delicious, and enough to blow your guests minds away. Melanie, Barry, Vincent, Mary, and the rest of the Park Savoy Staff, thank you for making my wedding day an absolute dream come true for my husband and I and our family!
Before we were married, my husband and I had been to 18 weddings together over the past 4 years or so. Needless to say, we knew what we wanted and what we didn't want when we started looking at venues for our own wedding. The Park Savoy was the first place we looked at, and I honestly don't know why we even looked at any other venues. NOTHING compares! From the minute we walked in to look at the Park Savoy the first time, Melanie and the entire staff were willing to make our day the wedding of our dreams, and they did just that. We added some personal touches; signature drinks, personalized cocktail stirrers, photos of us and our families, and a few dietary restrictions, and they accommodated all of it!! We've only been married for 2 weeks, but everyone is still calling, texting, and letting us know that our wedding was amazing and the food and service were top notch! The gardens are absolutely stunning, the ballroom is gorgeous, and the guests will have more than enough to eat during cocktail hour. We even showed up pretty late to the Park Savoy from the church, and the staff was very calm and let us extend cocktail hour another 10 minutes so we were able to enjoy it and talk to our guests. Do not look anywhere else! The Park Savoy is the best venue in NJ (and we have been to a LOT). I hope I get to go to a wedding there in the future!
My husband and I could not be happier about having our wedding at The Park Savoy. We had our wedding on a Thursday night, and it was just as amazing as having it on a Saturday night. The Park Savoy staff did not slack on anything! Food, service, grounds, -- everything was excellent! The Park Savoy exceeded our expectations. Our guests complimented us on what a great time they had, and many even said it was the best wedding they've ever been to! We had all aspects of our wedding on site (i.e., getting ready, ceremony, reception), and the staff was attentive and helpful the entire time. I arrived at noon with my bridesmaids to get ready in the bridal suite, which was definitely better than getting ready at any hotel or at home. The staff helped us the entire day and night, and we were there until at least 1AM! I cannot speak more highly of the Park Savoy. You cannot get this type of expertise anywhere else! And the food deserves an A++++ and 10 stars!
Last December when Jay and I got engaged, The Park Savoy was the first place that we looked. As soon as we walked in, we both fell in love with the venue and the wintery decorations and booked that day with Sam. This entire year of planning has been such a cake walk because of The Park Savoy. Our wedding on 12/21/13 was PHENOMENAL. It was a fairytale wedding and I can't say enough wonderful things about the venue. Barry, Julien, Damien, Mary, Diane, Sam and every single one of the staff were fantastic. Everything we asked for was there and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect night. Everything was perfection from the food to the details in the room. Everyone raved about the food, the place,the staff,etc. Julien, Mary and Diane made sure that Jay and I got to sit down and eat in our bridal suite to eat during cocktail hour. This was a priority for us and we were so glad that we got to enjoy the food as much as our guests did. If you get married at The Park Savoy, it will be the best day of your life. I wish I could go back and get married there again. Without a doubt, I recommend this venue to ANYONE getting married in New Jersey. Thank you all!!!!!!
When I first saw The Park Savoy it was under construction but I could tell there was something special about it. I booked with them not knowing what the "finished product" was going to look like, and it was the BEST decision I ever made.
I live 3,000 miles away and did not get to see the new Park Savoy until 4 months after I booked my wedding and I was simply blown away by how unbelievably gorgeous it was!
You will not find another venue that is as beautiful - inside and out - as The Park Savoy. And most places cannot compete with their award winning food (to be honest I'm not sure if they have received awards for their food, but if they haven't there is no question they deserve to!).
But what made my day so special, and the reason I would recommend The Park Savoy to EVERY bride in the tri-state area, is the people who work there. Melanie was just wonderful throughout every step of the wedding process. Planning a wedding across the country can be stressful to say the least, but Melanie continuously eased all of my fears, answered all of my silly questions, and made the planning process enjoyable! I didn't expect the day of my wedding to be almost stress-free either, but Mary (my bridal attendant) and Julian (our maitre d') took care of EVERYTHING! We didn't have to worry about anything, except having fun and enjoying ourselves, because they had everything else covered. Barry & Joe have done such a wonderful job with The Park Savoy, and especially with their staff. I just cannot say enough good things about ALL of the people who work at The Park Savoy, each and every one of them go above and beyond to ensure that your wedding day is the best day of your life.
I still cannot believe how incredibly perfect our wedding day was, but I have The Park Savoy to thank for absolutely exceeding all of my expectations!! And all of our friends and family are still telling us that it was the best wedding they have ever been to... what more can a bride hope for :)
My husband and I recently got married at The Park Savoy 10/19/13 and it was truly our dream wedding. From start to finish The Park Savoy went above and beyond my expectations...
I looked at multiple venues but ended up falling in love with the park savoy because I immediately felt comfortable there, not to mention the fact that it's absolutely GORGEOUS. Not only does Sam, Vincent and Julian treat you like family but THE OWNERS make you feel like they're welcoming you into their home. Mr. Joe Marillo spoke to me multiple times on the phone if I had any questions or concerns about the wedding. I've never heard of a wedding venue with such a prestigious reputation maintaining their "down to earth" appeal. Obviously planning a wedding is time consuming and stressful and no matter how many questions I had they took the time to call me back, discuss every detail with me, sit down with me multiple times, and they never made me feel like I was acting like a crazy bride, haha!
The wedding itself was even more beautiful then my husband and I could have imagined. The grounds were impeccable and the staff was beyond friendly. The food here is unlike any other wedding venue I have ever been to - everything was delicious and the cocktail hour left our guests in awe ! The Park Savoy is truly THE BEST in the industry. Multiple guests told us it was the best wedding they had ever been to and it was truly the best night of our lives...
I had my wedding at the Park Savoy on July 12, 2013. I looked at over 30 venues in NJ and the Park Savoy is truly the full package. I didnt want to compromise between beauty, customer service, and amazing food. This place simply has it all- and then some. The park savoy and the staff there made my dreams come true. The level of customer service I received was out of this world. Sam helped my husband and I from the start and he was truly caring, organized, professional, and flexible. We booked the Park Savoy while it was being renovated and we are so pleased with how beautiful it is both inside and out. On the day of the wedding, Julian and Vincent made sure that every detail was taken care of and that everything ran smoothly from start to finish. My guests are still raving about how beautiful the place is and how amazing the food was. Many guests were telling my family that it was the best wedding they had ever been to! I am so grateful to everyone at the Park Savoy for making my dream wedding become a reality. My husband and I cant wait to attend a wedding here in the future!
the second we walked into the park savoy we knew it would be the place we got married. the grounds are beautiful and immaculate, the food is incredible, and the staff is top notch!
Thank you so much for writing a review and for loving our staff!
We had a great time celebrating with you and your guests- what a great night!

For our daughter’s wedding, we visited The Park Savoy Estate just as they were completing their renovation in early 2012. The facility is impressive and we fell in love with it immediately for several reasons – it is a single event venue, there is ample seating for guests during the cocktail hour (both indoors and on an elevated patio), there are beautiful gardens for pictures and the ballroom is exquisite with its high ceiling, fireplace and crystal chandeliers. When the day arrived, the food was abundant and delicious and the service was outstanding beyond comparison! Vincent and Julian did a wonderful job coordinating all the activities and Dianne and Mary attended our every need. A number of times throughout the weekend we had guests come up to us with comments like: “Best reception this year” and even a few “ALL-TIME BEST!”
We know that it takes an army of staff to make an event like this a success, but we want to offer special recognition to Melanie for her partnership throughout the planning process. For this event, we had a significant logistical challenge since our daughter and her fiancé live in San Francisco and the groom’s family is from the Chicago area. From the outset, Melanie was a delight to work with – responsive to our questions, flexible for visits by out-of-state people and helping us with special requests.
We also want to mention the positive feedback we received from several of our vendors who went out of their way to let us know how nice everyone was to them and how they felt respected during every interaction.
The Park Savoy Estate exceeded our expectations and delighted us as customers. We are pleased to join the growing ranks of those who give The Park Savoy Estate perfect “5s” for their efforts.
The Park Savoy made all of our wedding dreams come true! We booked the Park Savoy while it was being renovated and we are so pleased with how beautiful it is both inside and out. The attention to detail is impeccable, from the antique furniture to the intricate ballroom ceiling to the gorgeous chandeliers. The gardens outside made for the most beautiful photos and it was the perfect setting for our wedding ceremony. In addition to the venue itself, the staff is incredible- Sam and Melanie are indispensable! Every single person we encountered, from the owners down to the waitstaff, was so genuinely kind and eager to please in anyway. All of my questions were immediately answered and they were quick to say yes to any request, no matter how big or small. On the day of the wedding, Julien made sure that every detail was taken care of and that everything ran smoothly from start to finish. Diane did not leave my side the entire time, making sure that I was well fed and well hydrated. I don’t think I could have made it through the day without her.
The Park Savoy is the most perfect venue. My guests are still raving about the food- I don’t think there could have possibly been any more offered! It was all delicious- and Diane made sure that we had a taste of everything! Many of my guests have stated that our wedding was the best that they have ever been to- and we definitely owe it all to the Park Savoy!
We recently had our wedding reception at The Park Savoy in Florham Park. It is an amazingly beautiful, elegant estate and the service is impeccable. Our guests are STILL talking about the food especially during cocktail hour. We went over most of the preparation and details with Sam, who answered all of our questions and made sure our day would be exactly what we had in mind. Vincent, our Matre d, was so attentive and made sure everything was perfect. Mary, my bridal attendant, was an angel. She made sure we were comfortable and got everything we needed (from, holding my lipgloss in her pocket to putting a table linen under my dress so it wouldn't get wet outside to helping remove the sting from my mosquito bites with vodka!) She was truly amazing.
We can't say enough about the Park Savoy. The owners are so incredible and attentive and made sure our day would be as perfect as could be. The staff is incredible and will make anyone feel at home.
From the minute my husband and I stepped into the Park Savoy in August of 2011 we knew that it was the place we were going to have our wedding. We booked our wedding date 4 months before the renovations took place and never once were concerned about how things were going to turn out. When we finally saw the finished product it was above and beyond our expectations and we were completely in love with our venue.
Sam was the first person that we met in August of 2011 and he made a wonderful first impression and absolutely made us feel comfortable from day one. Through out the wedding planning process the entire staff at the Park Savoy was amazingly supportive and easy to work with. They made us feel as though we were family and were always willing and able to help us make sure our wedding day was exactly what we envisioned. I must have been at the Park Savoy a hundred times between booking our date and our actual wedding and I must have asked a million questions but never once did I feel as though I was a bother or that someone wouldn't be able to help me. Melanie and Sam were always quick with responses and when needed we are able to guide us with the decisions we were making for the biggest day of our lives.
On our wedding day I could not have asked for a more seamless and stressfree experience. From the moment that we arrived after our ceremony we were constantly taken care of along with our parents and our bridal party. Never once were we looking for drinks, a wet napkin to cool off in the extreme humidity, some food from cocktail hour or just someone to tell us what the next thing to do was. The maitre d and bridal attendents were AMAZING literally at our every beck and call and making sure we were happy and stressfree. From the moment our guests arrived through the entire evening everything ran smoothly and was out of this world.
The food was absolutely amazing. The days right after our wedding consisted of family members and friends calling us and our parents to rave about the food, the grounds, the ambiance, and the overall complete awe of how wonderful our wedding was. We have not received one compliment that didn't start with "You're wedding is one of the BEST weddings we have EVER been to". Most brides and grooms say they don't have time to eat at their wedding and never get to enjoy the food. That was not the case for us - our maitre d and bridal attendent made sure we ate and even provided us with two dinners to take home so that we could enjoy it again the next day! The venetian hour was a hit with our guests. The overwhelming and delicious array of dessert was spectacular and guests are still raving about the zeppoles, fried oreos, bananas foster and cannolis!
I cannot say enough wonderful things about the Park Savoy and how they truly made our wedding day the most amazing and memorable day of our lives. Choosing the Park Savoy was not only the easiest decision that we made but it was absolutely the BEST decision we made when planning our wedding, they did not disappoint!
We are now waiting for someone that we know to have their wedding at the Park Savoy so we can enjoy it from a guests perspective!
Everything at the Park Savoy was flawless!! Our guests RAVED about the food, service, and decor and they couldn't believe that they had never been here before. I feel like this venue is one of NJ's best kept secrets. Even my husband's relatives, who are VERY picky, raved about the food! We chose the Park Savoy because we had attended a wonderful wedding at Nanina's and learned that the same owners bought the Park Savoy. Our maitre D and bridal attendants treated us like kings! I can honestly say that my only wish would be to re-live the day over and over again. Absolutely perfect!!
Dear Emily & Vincent,
Thank you for your lovely comments! We wish you all the best for a long and happy marriage!
Melanie- The Park Savoy Estate
My fiance is a USMC Veteran who recieved the Purple Heart in 2010 during his deployment in Afghanistan. He entered us into Opperation Tie the Knot Wedding Give Away for Military couples as soon as we got engaged. We did not win, however The Park Savoy generously donated a wedding of our dreams reception to us also!!! Not only is this venue breathtakingly beautiful, but the people who own it are the most generous, kind, and truly amazing people we've ever met. They are treating us like we are family. Anybody who is engaged and looking for the wedding venue to give them the absolute best wedding day, Go to The Park Savoy! We are truly grateful for all they are doing for us and cannot wait for 1.5.14 for the best day of our life!
The moment we saw the Park Savoy Estate - we were in awe. The venue is so sophisticated, elegant, and exudes class. The food is outstanding, and the service impeccable. The Park Savoy only caters to one wedding at a time, and treat you as if you are the most important person in the world. I cannot count how many times I was told by my guests that our wedding was the best wedding that they've been to - and I know that is largely due to the GORGEOUS and magical setting of The Park Savoy. If you are a bride or groom looking in North Jersey, there is no better place to start the beginning of your life together.
My hubby and I loved our wedding at the Park Savoy! The place was gorgeous, and the food was really delicious. We got lots of comments on how pretty the place was, and how tasty the food was! There were just a few hiccups that are worth mentioning. They seemed to be having a bit of trouble finding a new Maitre' D after Bill, their previous one of 35 years, retired. We saw at least three different people, and the very last one, a nice lady who was there for our wedding day, did not instill us with confidence at all. Fortunately, everything worked out - even though we could tell the Maitre D seemed nervous and not quite in control of things.
The food, as I mentioned, was spectacular, but the process of choosing what food we wanted was a little more complicated than it should have been - there were several different versions of the menu we pored over, and it seemed to keep changing. It took us several tries, but we finally got the menu we wanted. I'm sure they'll consolidate menus and simplify the process soon.
The day of, which was a crisp fall day, there were these hideous pumpkins and haystacks outside the elegant mansion, which I begged them to remove. They insisted that they would see what they could do, and they ended up not taking them away, although at least they moved the hay bales away from the door. Rather bizarre lack of taste, for such an otherwise very classy place.
The bridal suite is sumptious and elegant, and was a wonderful place to spend the morning getting ready! Plenty of gorgeous places for photo ops, too. Overall, I'd say this is an excellent place for your wedding! We had a lovely time.
Our wedding was earlier this month and was absolutely amazing. We just returned from the honeymoon and the comments from our family and friends keep rolling in about how it was the best wedding most of them had been too. My sister got married at their sister venue, Nanina's in the Park, about five years ago, so we knew the experience would be good, but it was unsurpassed. We booked pre-renovation, and the details on the finished product are incredible. The food was amazing and plentiful, and the staff is unmatched. Melanie and Linda helped with all the pre-planning, Mary was my amazing bridal attendant to didn't miss a beat all night, from bustling my dress to always waiting with champagne and insisting I sit and eat! Vincent was our maitre d who actually sent a staff member out to a local CVS when my mother-in-law broke her glasses early in the night--the staffer quickly returned with an eyeglass kit and fixed the glasses. Vincent also help tape a broken heel from one of our guests. We got married on a Friday night in November so had the ceremony inside, but outside is beautiful though for photos and ceremony in warmer months.
The staff is EXCELLENT! I never had to worry about any of the details...someone was always on top of everything. There is an amazing amount of food and everything is delicious! I can't wait to have a friend get married there so I can go back!
