Mayfair Farms is a historic restaurant and catering facility that hosts weddings, based in West Orange, NJ. Situated on 13 acres of elegantly manicured lawns and carefully tended gardens, the splendor of this venue is sure to captivate couples and guests alike. Founded in 1942, the business was established by Martin L. Horn Sr. He decided to purchase a property in the area and renovate it from a home residence to a private luncheon club. The idea was a success, and Martin was subsequently elected as the very first president of the New Jersey Restaurant Association. Four generations of the Horn family have continued this legacy of excellence, now guided by Martin’s four grandsons, Peter, Marty, Jimmy, and Don Jr. With majestic fireplaces and mahogany bars, Mayfair Farms retains an air of historical splendor. Couples will have a choice of indoor and outdoor locations to host their ceremony. Should they dream of an outdoor ceremony, they can exchange vows in the enchanting gardens, with a reception in the resplendent Wellington Garden room. This terrace-level room can accommodate upto 250 guests, and has a private patio. For indoor receptions, couples will have access to the Windsor Ballroom. With high ceilings and large windows overlooking the picturesque surroundings, this is an opulent area that can accommodate upward of 500 guests. For more intimate indoor gatherings, the venue can offer La Petite and Mayfair rooms, which can accommodate between 40-100 guests. While smaller in size, the feeling of grandeur continues into these spaces with original architectural details. This venue is as proud of their catering as they are of their history. In 2010, they decided to re-establish a Victory Garden within its grounds, where they produce organic herbs and vegetables. These ingredients are used in the cuisine, providing a taste of excellence. For weddings, a wide and varied menu is available including delights such as grilled swordfish and free-range chicken. The catering team can provide a customer-designed wedding cake, as well as a range of dessert stations. This venue can also offer a premium open bar with a selection of liquor, wine, and beer.
