When my fiance and I first started to look at venues for our wedding, we initially only looked in New York City, being that he's from Long Island, and I'm from NJ. We could not find any venue that offered what we were looking for without paying for all of the details. We went to look at Preakness (knowing that the ballroom was beautiful and the food is AMAZING) and met with James, the General Manager. We had the best experience working with both James and Angie. Preakness Hills was the only venue in NJ that we even considered looking at.
Everyone at Preakness was so easy to work with, and the service provided was phenomenal! During the planning we mainly worked with James, who was always available to talk when we had questions, and really listened to what we wanted. James was open to do what we wanted. When we first started planning we threw ideas around from a fancy bbq to a cocktail hour style wedding. James was open to all, and we felt confident that what ever we decided on, James would make it happen. We ultimately decided to have a traditional black tie affair, it made the most sense for the amount of people at our wedding.
We knew the food at Preakness was great, but we were blown away during our tasting. We told Chef Chris to do what ever he wanted during the cocktail hour... we trusted that Chris would not only deliver quantity, but quality too. Our guests haven't stopped talking about how wonderful the cocktail hour was. So many of our guests told us they've never seen so much food, with such great taste and quality during a wedding cocktail hour. The food during the reception was also amazing, with great fish and meat options.
We could not have asked for anything more. Our wedding at Preakness was exactly what we wanted. Thank you James, Angie, Chris, and everyone else who made our wedding day so special!
