We are so happy with our decision to have our wedding at Basking Ridge Country Club with Fair Winds Fine Catering!

I highly recommend Stephanie and the entire staff at Fair Winds Fine Catering and Basking Ridge Country Club. Stephanie guided us through the entire process; anticipating our questions, desires and calming our nerves when needed. The Basking Ridge Country Club is a gorgeous... Read More venue, providing the casual, yet elegant atmosphere we were looking for. The food was tremendous and plentiful. Stephanie worked with us to provide just what we wanted for our guests. Everyone was accommodating: from allowing the use of a golf cart for photos, to working with our vendors, to gathering up everything at the end of the night. Our 170 guests were very complimentary and are still talking about how great everything was. The waitstaff was unbelievable, attending our guests' every need, allowing us to enjoy the entire experience. Menz, Stephanie and others were on hand from the beginning to end to make sure everything ran smoothly. If you're looking for a beautiful, reasonable cost venue with professionalism, terrific food and helpful staff, this is the place! We had attended a small wedding about 10 years earlier and when the time came, we knew this was the place for our daughter's wedding. Our reception was everything we had hoped for. It was a worry-free, fun-filled event that we will cherish for years to come!

Gorgeous October Wedding!

On 8/6/16, my husband and I had our wedding reception at the Basking Ridge Country Club. I cannot say enough for this wonderful venue. Choosing BRCC was the best choice we made in the entire wedding process. From the very start when we went to look at BRCC, we were greeted so... Read More warmly by a staff that was not at all pushy. We worked with Stephanie as our Coordinator and we absolutely adored her from start to finish. Stephanie was kind and caring and professional. She clearly had much experience and her calm demeanor was so comforting as she guided us through the whole process of planning and executing the wedding. At BRCC you get a family-like experience. They treat you as well as your families and friends as if it is your home. They cannot do enough to accommodate and make all of you happy. It was so touching and added to the family-feel of our wedding. The venue is on beautiful grounds and the recent renovations are apparent. This doesn’t have those old tacky “wedding venue carpets” or ugly chairs! On the contrary it’s all neutral colors and fancy shimmery updated chairs. The food at this venue is TO DIE FOR! Guests are still raving about the amazing food. This is not surprising, considering their chef is so talented and spends hours with the couple at a tasting! The day of the wedding at BRCC was so simple and care free. The staff took care of everything! They set all of our props and our decorations to perfection. Everything was elegant and beautiful. We were taken care of nonstop at the wedding- as the bride and groom we had our own waiter who would have our drinks refilled before we even realized they needed refilling, and our plates cleared and replaced with second servings as soon as our utensils hit the table. My husband and I felt like King and Queen. They unobtrusively took care of us all night long! Furthermore, this same treatment was given to our parents, which made it all the more special. BRCC surpassed our every dream and expectation. I would go back and choose them a million times again if I had to. If I could rate them with more stars than the maximum, I would!

I cannot rave enough about BRCC and Danielle specifically - we met with her for our initial tour and she was a big part of the reason we chose BRCC. She was so responsive to our initial inquiries (we never waited more than 24 hours for an email back - sometimes it was as little... Read More as 5 minutes) and she was so friendly and made us feel like our wedding was important to her. After we signed our contract, that didn't change. Danielle was so attentive and so easily approachable to ask questions. She was willing to help us every step of the way, and she made the entire experience so much less stressful because of that. Our day itself was absolutely perfect. Everyone at BRCC did their best so that we never had to ask for anything, including putting a small dray of passed appetizers in the bridal suite for me and my husband. The staff was super friendly, and all of our guests had so much fun. They are raving about the food (including our friends and family members who are chefs) and we agree! Especially the cheesesteak sliders during the cocktail hour!!! I'm still hungry for them! Our decorations were put out exactly as we pictured them, and everything was absolutely beautiful. People have had such nice things to say about the beautiful ballroom and grounds. We absolutely could not have picked a better venue to hold our wedding at. We are so, so happy with how everything turned out and we really feel that we got a great value for our money. We had visited BRCC first during our venue search and we visited a few more venues just to make sure we saw what was out there, and the value within our price range couldn't be beat. We got so much more for our money at BRCC than other comparatively priced venues. We would recommend them to anyone, and I'm already trying to think of reasons I could hold another event there!!

I cannot thank Danielle at the Basking Ridge Country Club enough for making my dream wedding a reality. From the moment I booked the venue, Danielle worked closely with me to perfect every single detail of the day. I was not a bride who had been planning my wedding since I was...

The night of the wedding, I had Stephanie as my attendant and she was also incredible. She made sure I had everything I needed, took charge with my vendors, and provided me with top notch service. Did I mention the staff? Every bartender and waiter/waitress was polite, attentive, and appeared to even be having a genuinely great time serving my guests. We loved them all! Finally, the food.

I cannot say enough good things about my venue!! I had done a lot of venue searching, and when I brought my then-fiancé to visit this place, he told me he was immediately sold on it.

She had the same care and responsiveness during all the planning leading up to my big day. She instantly answered questions by email, helped with all the planning and took my ideas and translated them to something elegant that would fit the theme, and she and Menz-the maître d’-were present the entire wedding day, doing everything from driving us around in golf carts to and helping guests with cards and gifts. The entire staff assisted a few family members who have mobility issues. The venue is gorgeous, and I love that they only do 1 event at a time, so we were able to have a ceremony on the green, the big tent for mingling before the ceremony and AC to escape the summer heat, and the entire upstairs space for cocktail hour and the reception. The decor is sleek and refined, and the huge selling point for me was the views of the golf course. All rooms have floor to ceiling windows and views that made everything feel fresh and open. For me, the ballroom was a great shape to get the young crowd close to the DJ, and keep the older folks close to the sweetheart table (in a place of honor) but away from the speakers. Walter, the new chef, has amazing dishes, and we were so blown away by the braised short rib at our tasting that we selected that instead of filet! It was a good choice because people are still talking about our food, especially the mashed potato bar, 2 months later. He was creative with vegetarian and allergen-free meals, and people raved about the eggplant rollotini he served. He also gave us the flexibility to make special requests to the menu, and we asked for prosciutto-wrapped melon as nod to our engagement. And Stephanie, always thinking of little details, made sure I was served a full selection of our hors-d'oeuvres in my bridal suite. We planned this on a budget, but I feel so proud of the wedding and how everything turned out. The food, the space, and the service were so outstanding that we still get compliments. I really did feel special on my day, and I really have to thank BRCC for it.
