A BALLROOM IN EAST BRUNSWICK , NJ

About Us

Stepping into the grounds of Park Chateau Estate & Gardens is like stepping into 15 acres of rolling French countryside. Centrally located in the tri-state area, midway between Philadelphia and Manhattan, Park Chateau is ideally situated in East Brunswick, New Jersey, where the beautiful scenery and mild weather merge beautifully with European architecture, to evoke a continental ambience that will make guests feel transported to another place and time. Wedding couples who are looking for Old World grace and elegance, luxurious appointments and exquisite detailing will find Park Chateau a gem truly worth considering for their wedding and reception.

A stately path from the gate to a stone courtyard greets guests as they drive into the Park Chateau grounds. Stepping into the doors, a white-gloved server stands ready with a flute of champagne. Park Chateau hosts only one wedding at a time, so each couple has the undivided attention of focus of the estate management and staff.

Park Chateau Estate & Gardens has several different venues for both wedding ceremonies and receptions, which can be held indoors or outdoors depending on what couples find to be most suitable for their theme or preferences.

The Park Chateau Chapel. A charming chapel stands in majestic solitude across the path near the main house, providing a solemn, non-denominational venue for private wedding ceremonies of up to 350 guests, while still remaining very accessible to the various reception options within the estate grounds.

The Versailles Gardens and Grounds. Park Chateau has well-manicured grounds and a formal estate garden with a tranquil pond, where couples desiring an outdoor ceremony can choose to say their vows. A cocktail reception can also be set up in the adjacent patio. The sun-dappled water and the fresh air on the flagstone patio, overlooking the beautiful, European estate garden make picture-perfect vignettes for memories that will last forever. Up to 350 guests can be accommodated for an outdoor ceremony and cocktail reception at the Versailles garden and grounds.

The Grande Ballroom. The magnificent ballroom is a stunning venue which is luxuriously adorned with crystal chandeliers suspended from a 35-foot ceiling and opulently decorated interiors furnished in classic French style, to match the classic French antique furniture found elsewhere in the main house. All of the furniture pieces are original antiques that have been carefully selected and curated specifically for Park Chateau. The ballroom also has direct ensuite access to an adjacent bridal suite where the bride and her entourage can do quick adjustments or touch-ups. This ballroom can accommodate up to 400 guests. To-be-weds who prefer an indoor venue for a combined wedding and reception will definitely not go wrong in picking the Grande Ballroom.

The Main House or Chateau. The Chateau itself is furnished and decorated in Classic French style, to match the architecture and ambience that the place evokes. Stepping into the Chateau, guests can mingle in the vestibule area or wander around through the living room, the Wine Room or the Cocktail Room. A spacious Groom’s Suite and a Bridal Suite with an attached bridal salon are also found on the second floor.

There are not enough words to explain how AMAZING this venue and staff are. I got married here on 9/22/17. From the moment I booked with the Park Chateau they have exceeded my expectations. I booked in the summer of 2016 with Devin before the construction even started. I met... Read More with her at the Park Savoy and right away she was very welcoming and super sweet.

She was extremely helpful and answered any questions I had right away along with giving me suggestions. She is beyond the best. The day of my wedding was nothing short of amazing as well. The grounds and the building were immaculate. The chapel is my absolute favorite. I originally booked to have my wedding ceremony outside. Half way through the planning I changed my mind because the beauty that lies within the chapel is breathtaking. I arrived super early in the morning for the preparations and there were many bridal attendants helping me with anything I needed. As the time got closer to walk down the aisle I had a bridal attendant named Pat who was AWESOME! I didn't have to worry about a thing from the beginning to the end. She was always there and ready to help with me anything. Everyone who attended my wedding raved about the outstanding service and food during the cocktail hour and the reception. Everything was outstanding. We are a month later and people are STILL talking about how amazing my wedding was at the Park Chateau. I cant wait to get my pictures and wedding video back so I can relive the best day of my life. Thank you so much to EVERYONE at the Park Chateau who helped in making my wedding day a dream come true!! You all were such a blessing.

My husband Michael and I had our wedding reception at the Park Chateau on June 24, 2017 and to say that we were beyond impressed and satisfied with the service to every last detail is an understatement.

The Park Chateau exceeded these criteria. We are still receiving compliments from our friends and family about how well they were treated by all of the staff and from the bride and groom perspective we could not say enough good things about how seamless the entire wedding planning process was. Devin and Elizabeth would get back to our emails within less than a few hours so that we could easily coordinate with our other vendors. This is the type of service you want when planning your wedding. THEY TAKE CARE OF YOU. Oh and when you visit The Park Chateau you will fall in love with the grace, detail, heart and soul that was put into the design by the owners. The place is absolutely grand and stunning but still maintains a cozy and warm feeling. Each part of our event gave our guests a different experience from the cocktail hour experience where guests had the gorgeous backdrop of the Versailles gardens to the library and wine room and then moving into the reception with the most gorgeous chandelier you have ever seen.

The ballroom is simply breathtaking, with the impeccable craftsmanship, elegant finishes and endless hours of work, it is truly a sight to be scene! Aside from the stunning venue, all of the people that work at the Park Chateau are amazing. From the people who you work with in the days before and the day of, to the owners, to the amazing chef, and so on. They made us feel like one of them from the beginning. The cocktail hour was an over the top display of deliciousness (Mozzarella Joe was a huge hit — amazing display, amazing food, and an amazing guy ). Everyone told us this was one of the best if not the best cocktail hour they have been to. Dinner was just as much of a hit with all of our family and friends (and they are tough critics). I can tell you in hindsight that (aside from picking who to marry) picking your venue is the most important part of your wedding and the MVP of all your vendors. A beautiful venue will set the stage to show off everything else you will meticulously pick for your wedding day and the Park Chateau is second to none. Our only wish is that we could be guests at a wedding at the Park Chateau sometime soon. On that note…if you need some guest fillers or to reach a minimum…my husband and I are more than happy to attend. Elizabeth and Devin both have our contact info so just ask them :)

On March 11, we had our dream wedding at the Park Chateau. We booked before the venue was even built and a lot of people thought we were insane, but we never had a doubt in our minds. We were sold on PC based on artist renderings, the menu selection, and the reputation of their... Read More sister properties, the Park Savoy and Nanina’s in the Park. The real deal maker though, was the service we experienced from our first meeting with Devin. We had full confidence that the venue would be spectacular. In fact, we had two other appointments with “estate” venues that day, but we cancelled them because we did not want our wedding anywhere else. Throughout the first few months of planning, Devin answered all our questions with charm, enthusiasm, professionalism, and in a timely manner. As things continued to move along at the PC, we began to deal with Liz, who was equally delightful. Every time we saw them or the owners for a meeting, they greeted us like old friends with warm hugs. In fact, on the day of the wedding, one of the groomsman was in awe of the relationship we developed with the PC staff. It was a journey to see the Chateau come to life. From the ironwork, to the moldings, the chandeliers, and furniture, not a single detail was spared. Every meeting, every detail, every employee, every step of progression just kept better and better. When we did our final walkthrough, every room was even more beautiful than we could imagine. On the day of the wedding, we got ready in the groom and bridal suites with a spread of snacks, mimosas, and drinks. The hair and make-up artists were amazed by the full-sized salon (and the sink with massage chair!). Our photographers loved the many opportunities for photos. It was too cold to take advantage of the Versaille gardens, but there were plenty of beautiful rooms to use. Throughout the entire prepping process, photos, and the wedding night, our bridal attendants Ashley and Pat were with us every step of the way. Whether it was to hold a bouquet, adjust a bow tie, or to get us a drink, they were there. When guests arrived, they were wowed the second they drove through the beautiful gates. They were greeted with champagne and live music from the grand piano in the foyer before getting escorted to the chapel for the ceremony. With the help of the Chateau’s florist, Crest Florists, the chapel looked like it belonged in a fairytale. Despite the cold weather, the chapel felt warm and inviting, lit by candles and lanterns, with beautiful floral displays to invoke the feeling of the French countryside. After the ceremony, our guests enjoyed what they described as “the best cocktail hour ever.” Everyone raved about the food, said it was ‘over the top’, ‘best food at a wedding I’ve ever eaten’, ‘such an assortment’, and that was only the first hour of food. For the rest of the night we partied, ate, drank and mingled with our good friends and family, including the staff at the Chateau. Raphael, the maître’d, made sure that us and all our guests were happy and the night went smoothly. Our guests were impressed with the white glove service and hospitality. Days later, guests are still telling us about the great time they had. We will be forever grateful to the Park Chateau for helping us in hosting the wedding of our dreams. Many guests tell us it was the best wedding they have attended. We cannot thank the staff at the Chateau enough and have grown to feel like they are part of our new family.
