Words will never be able to truly describe how amazing Shadowbrook and staff are. Our wedding was an absolute dream come true and I would give anything to relive it! Our guests are still raving about how gorgeous the venue itself is as well as how delicious the food was. Dan and... Read More Amy were wonderful throughout the whole planning process and were extremely understanding of a nervous out of state bride. Matt and Stephanie made sure that the day/night went as smooth as possible and the attention that was given to us and our family will never be forgotten!

We cannot THANK the staff of Shadowbrook at Shrewsbury enough for our incredible dream-come-true Wedding! We were so impressed by the incredible people who made our Wedding so perfect! Mark, Dan, and Amy were so helpful in the planning of our wedding reception and reassured... Read More us that everything would be great – and it was better than we could have ever imagined! Stephanie and Matt were so attentive and helped us along each step of the way on our day, we had no stress at all and we could enjoy every single moment. Matt and Stephanie – you truly are amazing! You were so professional and supportive throughout the entire evening. The cocktail hour was just overwhelming. We received calls and messages from our guests for weeks afterward raving about the food. Dinner was just perfect and the Viennese Dessert Hour was like a dream! Overall, the food at Shadowbrook was exceptional and the service and bar staff were a delight! We highly recommend the Shadowbrook at Shrewsbury – and hope we can get invited to a wedding there sometime soon!! 😊

The moment we drove up to the Shadowbrook we knew that we had found our venue! Not only is the venue itself absolutely stunning... but the staff was extremely accommodating & the service was top notch! We were in contact with Amy, Danny and Mark (the owner) throughout the entire... Read More process, & they were always attentive to all of our questions, concerns & requests. From day one we had our hearts set on having both our ceremony & cocktail hour in the outdoor garden area knowing that this could be greatly affected by the weather. Leading up the wedding they were in constant contact with us & assured us that they would do everything in their power to help our vision come to life. Unfortunately the morning of our wedding the forecast called for very high temperatures & a chance of rain... we were forced to move our cocktail hour indoors. We lucked out & were able to have a beautiful, romantic outdoor ceremony. The cocktail hour was not what we had originally pictured in our heads, instead it exceeded all of our expectations!!! They displayed all of the food (beautifully) indoors & opened up the french doors on both sides of the mansion so that our guests were free to eat/drink on the tables outside, listen to our band & explore the gardens. Stephanie was my bridal attendant & Matt was our maitre d' and they were both amazing... accommodating every possible need! It was actually like they were reading our minds the whole night! Our guests are still raving about every aspect of our wedding! The food is out of this world, the service is unmatched, & there were so many tiny details that just set this apart from any other wedding we've been to. From providing our guests with cool, scented towels after the ceremony, to the fresh mozzarella cheese being made in front of our guests, to the shots being passed out on the dance floor (as per our request)! We could not say enough good things about this place! Thank you to everyone for an absolutely amazing, flawless wedding!

We fell in love with the old world charm of the building and from the time we booked to our wedding date things only changed for the better with updates throughout the... Read More property that just made things even more beautiful! Throughout the process Amy never got annoyed despite my thousand and one questions! They accommodated all of our requests without a bat of an eye and made sure to take care of everything the day of so we didn't need a day of event planner. We ended up deciding to join our guests during cocktail hour and we were very happy we did because we got to eat and enjoy all of the food! Everyone always says you never eat at your own wedding - but thanks to Stephanie this certainly wasn't the case throughout the evening! We got to taste everything - all of the food was excellent! Our guests are still raving how extensive cocktail hour and the Viennese hour were. The service was also top notch - the tables were spotless and the shots & drinks were endless - we did not go a moment without drinks in our hands. We had so many people come up and tell us this was the best wedding they've ever been to. Thank you for everything you guys did to make it a fairy tale wedding for us! We will definitely be back! :)

When my husband and I first started looking at venues we decided we wanted to look at no more than five halls. The Shadowbrook was number six. We are so glad that we decided to look at one more! When we first toured the hall they were still in the process of making a few... Read More renovations. After speaking with Mark, Dan and Amy we knew we were in good hands and trusted that they finished product would blow us away. The estate is spectacular and every inch is kept in pristine condition. They kept in touch with us every step of the way and were always available. By the time our wedding day came, I felt like they were old friends. Everything about our reception was absolutely fantastic. The place is run like a well-oiled machine. The staff is constantly in communication with one another via earpieces and knew when we had to be where. Our guests were blown away by the cocktail hour and still devoured their entrées. The maître d, Matthew, was extremely attentive and went out of his way to cater to my mother in law the whole night and made her feel really special. My bridal attendant, Victoria, was my absolute favorite person in the world that day. She was cool, calm and collected the whole night and her attitude put me at ease. She did everything! My wine glass was always full, my dress was fluffy and I was able to enjoy the night. I hope that I get to attend a wedding there as a guest one day so I can really soak it all in. To be honest, there is no shortage of wedding venues in New Jersey. You can find a dance floor anywhere. You can’t always find GOOD people who are passionate and knowledgeable about what they do. This can make all the difference in the world.

We cannot even begin to express the appreciation we have for the owners and staff at Shadowbrook. If we were to choose 1 word to describe our wedding day it would be “magical”. Jimmy was an absolute pleasure to work with and really took the time to review all the details with us... Read More to ensure our wedding day was flawless. Dan and Mark were not only so helpful but so nice! The day before our wedding, November 17th, we received a phone call that they recommend our wedding ceremony be outside IN NOVEMBER (expected to be in the low 60s which was rare)! They were so confident it was the right choice they happily set-up the entire outside with flowers, heat lamps, and torches after it was already disassembled for winter. The thought and work they put into our ceremony was above and beyond! We so appreciated there every effort to make the day so memorable. The outside ceremony was simply breathtaking (they were right). Matt and Stephanie, OMG! They were SAINTS! They were always 10 steps ahead of us and knew what we were going to need or ask before we even did. Our bridal party (who have been in a ton of weddings) were in awe at how attentive they were the entire day. They were blown away! During the reception the staff was impeccable. My grandfather asked if we paid the staff extra to follow him around to make sure he was good (we did not pay extra). That is how GREAT the service was! Beyond the service and staff you will get the most amazing and high quality food there is to offer. Everything from the cocktail hour to the main course to the dessert was flawless. They even made special touches to fit our preferences like an IPA bar and gator bites! The venue itself was also gorgeous with the stunning details inside and out. As beautiful as this venue was it somehow still felt warm and inviting. We were absolutely BLOWN AWAY by how incredible our wedding was. It was above and beyond what we ever imagined. THANK YOU AGAIN from the bottom of our hearts for treating us like royalty and family. ~Nicole & Steven 11/18/16~

One Word: INCREDIBLE. That is the best way to describe everything about this venue. We got married on 9/25/2016 and from the time we went to tour this place through the day of our wedding we couldn’t have been more thrilled with everything about, and everything involved in... Read More having our wedding here. Everything they said they would deliver they not only met our expectations but greatly exceeded them. On the day we booked our date, we were somewhat nervous that we’d “only” have 8-9 months to plan everything. Mark and Amy told us not to worry that they would help us find our vendors and be there to help us every step of the way. And when they followed through with that it just put our minds at ease that we were in good hands. We knew we could trust them and that’s important. Mark, Danny, Amy and the entire Shadowbrook staff are extremely professional, responsive, easy to work with and even though they are extremely busy, they do the little things and go the extra mile to make sure you feel important. They all came to see us on the day of our wedding and congratulate us. All of the little details they make sure to pay attention to and that’s before we ever talk about anything relating to the actual day of the wedding. So let’s get to that: first, the venue is absolutely gorgeous and the recently finished remodeling has given the place an extra touch of class. We had our ceremony and cocktail hour outside and it was simply stunning, we can’t wait to get our pictures back. The ballroom looked amazing and intimate. One other thing to point out is that a lot of brides and grooms don’t fully get to enjoy the experience of their big day because they’re running around busy, greeting guests, etc. Shadowbrook made sure that we got some time to ourselves to step back and enjoy it all and that was really appreciated. Quality of Service – unbelievable. Our guests are still raving about not only how much food there was at the cocktail hour, but also the quality of it. Some of guests told us it was the best food they’ve had at a wedding. During the reception, they have a dedicated server at every table meaning that no one went to long without a drink and didn’t always have to go up to the bar to get one. Everything about Shadowbrook and the staff is first class. We’d like to thank Mark, Danny, Amy, our Maitre D, bridal attendant, and entire Shadowbrook staff for making our day even better then we possibly could have imagined. We will be forever grateful.

When we began venue searching, we came across Shadowbrook. We immediately fell in love with historical, Victorian charm. After a few ups and downs with changes being made to the venue, we couldn't be happier with the way our wedding turned out. Mark made sure we were happy...

I really do not know where to begin. Our experience with Shadowbrook was fantastic in every way. My husband and I could not have been happier with everything!! The planning process: Shadowbrook was so great during the entire process. Jana was always so helpful answering random... Read More questions we had (and we had quite a few), and it really put us at ease. Amy and Mark were also great when we were directed to them. Mark was also very helpful with the menu. The wedding day: Danny was so organized and again, put us immediately at ease. He was so professional, and we immediately felt confident that everything was under control. He worked with our vendors to make sure everything was set up correctly and would run seamlessly - which it did!! We are so grateful for all of his help and for taking all of the stress off of us! Brittany (the bridal attendant) was also incredible! She was by our side the entire day. My husband and I did not have to worry about a thing! Every time we needed her for something she was there. My bridesmaids and I could not get over how helpful she was and how we would have been lost without her. Professional and so sweet, it was like she read our minds the entire day. Brittany, thank you so much for everything! Ceremony: We had our ceremony outside, and it was so beautiful. The garden is so well kept (which we knew from the first moment that we saw it). Cocktail hour: After the ceremony, Brittany brought my husband and me upstairs to the bridal suite while the guests and bridal party started downstairs. She brought up a wide selection of food just for us. We went down for the second half of cocktail hour where we got to mingle with our guests. I'm sure you can handle cocktail hour however you like, but we took Shadowbrook's suggestion and went up for the first half. It was such a memorable part of our night. We were glowing after the ceremony and it was so nice to take 30 minutes to just be alone with one another and take everything in! Also, once we got down to the cocktail hour, we were happily overwhelmed with seeing everyone and would probably not have had much food otherwise. So many of our guests said that the cocktail hour spread was remarkable; a few guests did not realize there was dinner afterward since there was just so much food! Reception: SO MUCH FUN and it just flew by. There was plenty of room for our band and still lots of room on the dance floor! (Side note: The ASAP band was incredible. The energy they brought to the reception was like nothing else - so many people told us they never saw so many guests up on the dance floor). The bar was regal and a fun spot for guests. The food and service was also great, as expected! After the wedding: We are still receiving compliments from guests RAVING about the wedding! It's such a great feeling to know our family and friends had such an amazing time. From the food and drinks, to the service, to the beautiful estate and grounds, we are still glowing!

If I could pick one word to describe our wedding experience at the Shadowbrook, it would be phenomenal.

She was extremely attentive to our needs, making sure we had champange and food in our bridal suite, she assisted with my veil and dress during pictures and was a life saver when a bit of make-up got on my dress.

Words can not even begin to describe the experience that the Shadowbrook provides. My husband and I had our wedding at the Shadowbrook in July. I am the absolute hardest person to please and I am EXTREMELY particular. The Shadowbrook absolutely blew me away in terms of their... Read More service, attention to detail, and the quality of their food. I had booked with the original owners in June of 2014. And when I received the news of new ownership I was very nervous. The Shadowbrook is a very classic estate and has a very particular charm to it, I was nervous that under the new owner ship the renovations would cause the venue to lose that charm. I had periodically visited to see the updates and they were fantastic. The new owners helped restore the mansion in a way that made it 100 times better than it was when we first booked. The day of the wedding it was an absolute tortential downpour, the weather was horrible, but once every one was inside the cocktail hour that was quickly forgotten. The food was in such abundance and such high quality my guests were besides themselves. Room after room after room FILLED with every type of food you can imagine. Every type of h'ors dourves you could think of was passed. The ice luge with every type of liquor to chill your shot, the exquisite sushi display and the room filled with an Italian feast are just a FEW of the stations we had at our cocktail hour. The seated dinner was phenomenal, our guests could not believe how amazing every tasted. All of their food is such amazing quality. The most outstanding was the vienese hour. My guests were saying they walked into Willy Wanka's chocolate factory. Chocolate fountains, every type of cookie, cake, pastry and cordial was served. Crepes, waffles, ice cream and gelato carts, cotton candy, pop corn, just to name a few. It was a completely unreal experience. Aside from the absolute over the top phenomenal food, the service is exquisite. The Maitre Brittany was on another level as was the bridal attendant Stephanie. Everytime I turned around she had a fresh drink waiting for me and my husband. She had plates of every type of food offered at cocktail hour set aside for us so that we didn't miss anything, same for the vienese hour. The both of them were absolutely phenomenal and could not have provided better service. Each table in the ballroom had their own server. Our guests didn't need to leave their table, except of course to dance. The servers brought them their drinks, took their orders, brought them shots. What ever our guests wanted, the servers took care of it. I have never been to a wedding where the service was so on point and so accomodating for guests. The Shadowbrook at Shrewsbury knows how to host an event. The new owners worked with us to ensure all of our requests were met and went above and beyond to make sure that we were pleased. If I could do it all over again I wouldn't go anywhere else. This venue and the owners are top notch. I am praying that a friend gets married there so I can go back and experience it all over again. The grounds and gardens are beautiful and had it not been a monsoon outside we would have had our cocktail our and photos outside. This venue is so gorgeous and has so much to offer. It truly wish we could do it all over again!!

We booked the Shadowbrook back in October 2014 with the original owners. I loved the vintage look and feel.

The updates were definitely necessary but enhanced all those feelings I felt the first time we saw the venue back in 2014. The new owners still kept that old world charm but brought the Shadowbrook to life. On the day of our wedding, we had the most perfect weather. Our ceremony/cocktail hour were outside and everything surpassed our expectations. The food was absolutely PHENOMENAL and the service was out of this world.

Our guests' experience mattered more to us than our own, and they were THRILLED! We received so many compliments on the food, place, and service. Everyone commented about how beautiful the mansion and grounds looked - "like a dream"! Everything was meticulously maintained and... Read More nothing short of spectacular (note they've refreshed much of the place, including stunning marble floors). As for food, most people enjoyed cocktail hour so much, they couldn't even finish their dinners - although everyone took at least a bite and commented that the food was top notch. We were also stuffed from cocktail hour so couldn't eat much but made it a point to try everything on our table and loved it all. Our salads were crisp and fresh, mains absolutely delicious, and each dish just looked fabulous! We were in our suite for most of cocktail hour so checked in with our guests (especially outspoken family members :)) on food variety and speed of service - amazing feedback all around. As for service, our guests were pleasantly surprised by the level of attention - one of my husband's friends joked that as he turned around during dinner to look at something beyond his table, one of the servers rushed to check if he needed anything. This is exactly what I wanted to hear from my guests! We also had a fantastic experience working with everyone, starting with amazing Amy! The very sweet and generous owner met with us early on during planning finalization to tie out some details and share advice - very detail oriented and helpful, even advised on dietary restrictions by dish! We met with Maitre D Jerry a few days before the wedding to drop off wedding items and review the final plan - we LOVED him! Very easy to deal with and insightful - took care of every detail and all of our requests (surprise for groom mid-reception, add'l groom's dessert with special service instructions, etc.). Jerry managed the whole event and staff flawlessly. Similarly, bridal attendant Brittany was Super Woman - she took her job very seriously (and sweetly!) and took incredible care of us throughout the day. We were in our suite after the ceremony for most of cocktail hour and she made sure to bring up multiple rounds of food so we can try most dishes (impossible to try all upstairs) + emergency spot cleaning when I spilled some food :). She shadowed us throughout the night, making sure we looked perfect for all photos and didn't need a thing. At the end of the night, she packed everything for us and made our families' jobs so much easier! Fantastic service all around - we couldn't have picked a better venue and team!

Our wedding at the Shadowbrook in August of 2015 was above and beyond what we could have ever imaged! We booked our wedding around the time of the change in ownership, and were incredibly pleased with the professional and helpful staff. The already gorgeous grounds and...

Our ceremony was performed on-site in gorgeous gardens which transformed into a backdrop of our monogram for the guests to view from the reception. The cocktail hour was overflowing with spectacular displays of food and drinks, and our guests marveled at how delicious and perfect everything was. We were able to quickly take care of pictures and our bridal assistant Brittany made sure that we had time to ourselves in our bridal suite to sample EVERY bit of food that our guests were dining on. We then joined our guests towards the last half of the cocktail hour, and neither us or our guests wanted it to end! Our reception was held in the Oak Room, which was newly outfitted with marble floors to replace the carpeting that was previously there. Our florist worked with the Shadowbrook closely to cover the chandeliers in flowers, and to outline the room with tea lights to create the classic warm feeling room that I had envisioned. The reception was again full of delicious foods, from the appetizers to the desserts. There is no shortage of food, and to top it off, the food is some of the best I have ever had at a wedding. The caring staff including Brittany, Danny, Jerry and Mark made sure to make us feel like they were as invested in the success of our event as if it were their own wedding. There were no issues, no complaints, nothing I would have changed about the day. I couldn't be happier with our decision to hold both our ceremony and our reception at the Shadowbrook and would highly recommend it to everyone looking for a wedding venue in NJ.

We got married in Shadowbrook on Sunday April 3, 2016. Hands down the best wedding we can ever imagine. Even our guests kept raving about Shadowbrook and up until now we still get feedback how it was the best wedding ever. It had the charm that we were looking for. We wanted... Read More something cozy, has that old world charm, classy and different from all the other wedding venues in New Jersey. We booked with the previous owners of Shadowbrook so when we heard that it was sold we were worried but our apprehensions went away when we found out the owners of Venetian took over. They did such an amazing job with the renovations. The place now has more glitz and glam with the old world charm which exactly fit our style and exactly what we were looking for. The place is perfect! The grounds were gorgeous and I'm so happy that even if it was cold and windy we were still able to take gorgeous pictures outside. We are so thankful to Mark and Danny coz they thought and gave us the downstairs room for our ceremony since our wedding band needed more than an hour and a half to set up at the oak room. Even if I had hoped for an outside ceremony, our inside ceremony turned out to be perfect as well. Now the food!! Best wedding food ever! I'm saying this not because it is our wedding but we have been to many weddings before but this is by far the best. Me and my husband are certified foodies so trust me on this one. Our guests were blown away by the food during our cocktail hour. It was overflowing with amazing food. It had anything and everything you can think of. Amazing display and passed hors d'oeuvre. I had chateaubriand for dinner and it was perfectly cooked like how i want it, medium rare, tender and flavorful. The vintage bar is one of my favorites! They kept the look which we love. We enjoyed the bar and so did our guests. ;) Lastly, at the end of the day it's the service that matters the most. Brittany was an amazing bridal attendant. She made me feel comfortable right away, knows exactly what she's doing and I wasn't wrong when i trusted the she has all our needs under control. Danny is great to work with also. He is available for us at all times and he is an expert at what he does. Jana and Amy are also great. I would hear back from them right away whenever I have questions and concerns.

From the second that we walked into Shadowbrook, we knew we had found our venue. The entire place is stunning, matching old world charm with careful updates. During the planning process we worked with Amy and Dan, both of whom were extremely helpful, not to mention friendly.... Read More All of our questions were answered, and all of our special requests were accommodated. Now, 2 weeks after our wedding, we are still having people reach out to us to say that we had the best wedding they have ever been to and they want to have their weddings at Shadowbrook. The abundance and quality of the food was incomparable. The cocktail hour was spread throughout multiple rooms, and everything was delicious. The service was that of a 5 star restaurant, and the Viennese hour, which opened with a fire show, is making my mouth water just thinking about it. I also have to thank Brittany, our bridal attendant. She was phenomenal. She anticipated needs I didn't even know I had until she had addressed them. And Dan, our Maitre'D ensured that everything ran like clock work. When I was disappointed that we couldn't have the ceremony outside as we had planned, due to weather, Dan set-up our sweetheart table under the chuppah, which looked stunning. The only critique I would offer is that we were only allowed to arrive 2 hours early for pictures. I was concerned this wouldn't be enough time, and I was right. So my suggestion to anyone who books the Shadowbrook (which I can't urge you enough to do) would be to ask to come earlier, unless you aren't doing a first look. Then it shouldn't matter.
