The Palace made our wedding fantastic. We were married on 7/17/2016 and it was perfect. We would recommend this venue and their staff over and over again. Our guests are still raving about the wedding from the organization of the venue, to the quantity and quality of the food... Read More and beverages. The Palace staff is the most organized and professional and accommodating people we have ever felt with. Special recognition is deserved to the three Palace staff members that helped throughout our wedding process: Michelle Malave (our wedding planner from the Palace) assisting us throughout the entire wedding planning process accommodating our requests and ensuring everything was communicated to staff on the day of. Michelle was able to get our wedding cake completed (baked on site by pastry chef who made our "superhero/wedding" cake even better than we imagined). David Parada (our maitre'd from the Palace) executed our wedding perfectly. David was able to handle all requests, all family members and every step from the final wedding planning meeting to the last minute of the wedding. David appeared when we needed him and made sure we were on time and on schedule throughout the entire wedding. Also not to forget my wife's bridal attendant, Gina, who helped my wife with everything she needed, wanted and/or didn't know she needed. Gina helped us both during the wedding reception and was overall a pleasure to be around and excellent to have on the day of the wedding. We researched the Palace and other venues in the area prior to making our decision to have our wedding here based on the reviews, but they honestly don't do them justice. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS VENUE. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND MICHELLE, DAVID AND GINA!

I had attended a few weddings here prior to venue hunting for our own. I still remember my very first impression of The Palace when I attended my bridesmaid's wedding here - it was "wow". From the moment we started inquiring about The Palace, everyone we dealt with was super... Read More friendly and accommodating. This made the already stressful wedding process so much easier to deal with. We visited a few other venues in the Central Jersey location, but we would always come back to The Palace. When we would compare the venues and what they offered, there was never any question of who we should and wanted to book with. Our event planners, Christie and Alex were awesome. From our meetings to follow-up questions we had or clarification we needed, they always answered us promptly and were so friendly in the process. Our Maitre D and Bridal Attendant, Richard and Jillian respectively, were amazing. From our first meeting, they were true professionals, efficient, and so nice and fun to deal with. This carried out to our big day. Jillian and Richard were always checking up on us and making sure we and everything was okay. They allowed us to just enjoy our day and be in the moment instead of having to worry about the details of the day! The venue itself is beautiful and grand. They only allow for 2 events to be booked at the same time and the beauty of their set-up is that you wouldn't even know it because the 2 events would be happening at opposite ends of the venue and everything from the valet parking, bridal suites, cocktail hour, reception, balconies, etc is separated. As soon as your guests arrive, they are greeted with 2 of your chosen signature cocktails. Their cocktail hour is usually divided between their large balcony and inside if weather permits. If it's cold out, they set up heaters also. Aside from the different stations you choose, they also have staff walking around serving hors d'oeuvres. All of their food is delicious! We remember it first hand from the weddings we attended, but we were soon reminded of it during our food tasting, and our family and friends continue to tell us how good the food was! When the cocktail hour ends, they pull the curtains back and reveal the adjoining main room. During the introductions, we made our grand entrance down the staircase but had the rest of our bridal party enter through the main floor (since we had a few pregnant bridesmaids). The rest of the night was seamless as Richard and Jillian made sure we were aware of when everything was happening (first dance, speeches, dinner, cake-cutting, etc) and coordinated with our vendors. At the end of night, Richard and Jillian gave us 2 of our entrees "to-go" just in case we weren't able to eat during our reception, the top of our wedding cake all wrapped up and making it ready for us to just pop in our freezer, and all of the items we dropped off prior to our wedding to be set-up (cake topper, guest book, etc). They even packed our car with these items so we wouldn't forget!! All of our vendors had already done weddings at The Palace and our florist stated that it was the most organized venue that it ever dealt with. The Palace is truly outstanding from it's gorgeous venue, superb staff, delectable food, and amazing service. We were always impressed with The Palace but nothing tops having our own wedding there. They truly treated us like royalty.

We were assigned Cristina as our point person and she was always on the ball. Any random question, concern, e-mail, she answered and was super sweet! Josh was our concierge and he was AMAZING! Not only is he a fellow lover of show tunes (which made him even more awesome), he kept everything flowing smoothly, communicated with our vendors, and always made sure that my husband and I were eating, drinking or having a great time. Stephanie, my bridal attendant, was THE BEST! I wish I could be best friends with her. She was so sweet, so caring and was on top of everything. My parents still talk about what a sweetheart she was. Our guests STILL rave about how amazing the cocktail hour (splurge on the sushi station - it's worth it) and the main courses were. I've never been to a wedding where people come out complimenting the main dishes, but The Palace goes above and beyond in every way! Not to mention the venue is beautiful and all of our pictures look like they were taken in Hollywood! Two weddings go on at the same time, but I can honestly say that I had no idea other people were there and all of the attention was on our wedding. I wish we could relive the day!

The Palace is an absolutely wonderful place to get married! We got married in November, the location, the food, the service and staff were amazing! The food from cocktail hour through dessert were fantastic! And as Bride and Groom, Richard made sure we ate everything. Richard... Read More and Gina were always around with a drink or something to eat! Our guests are still talking about the Viennese table, which was included in the price of the venue! Not only is there a huge quantity of food, but it all tastes great! Going back to the planning process we booked the Palace a year and half in advance and while it is pricey it’s definitely worth it! I was able to get ready at the location with the whole bridal party! Actually the reason I’m not giving them 5 starts is because you only get the bridal suite for 10 hours and I needed it to get ready. They charge an extra $125 per hour you need it earlier than 10 hours. That came up in our final meeting, which was two weeks before the wedding. Not great timing and caused quite a bit of stress. In the end, I paid the money because I felt like I had to, it was too late to change my plans with the hairstylist and photographer. Which left me feeling nickeled and dimed. Like I said, they are pricy and while it’s worth it for everything else they do, they don’t need to charge an extra $125 per hour. Overall, just something you don’t need to deal with two weeks before, when there isn’t any money left in the budget. Otherwise, I was completely happy with them! They do everything! They even make the cake, which is beautiful and delicious! They can accommodate for indoor and outdoor weddings, which was important to me as we were getting married in November. They were also very accommodating when it came to our dietary restrictions. We wanted a kosher style wedding and the chef went above and beyond to meet our needs. I would recommend the Palace to any couple looking for the perfect fairytale wedding!

Richard, the Maitre D, and Latonya, the bridal attendant, were so helpful from the moment we arrived all the way to the end of the night. Richard made sure the night went smoothly and even took pictures on my phone during formal shots. Latonya really made me feel like a princess – she noticed things like my necklace needed to be fixed, the bottom of my dress needed to be adjusted, got me flip flops to wear since I forgot to bring comfy shoes to change into, and always made sure my husband and I were happy at all times. She also made sure our photographer captured the classic Palace shots. The food was abundant and delicious. You really get your money’s worth! Our guests raved about the food all night – no one left hungry! My husband and I still think about the food from that night so much that we hope to be guests for a future wedding there!

My husband and I live in NJ and we looked at venues throughout the entire tri-state area. We were just about to book our venue in North Jersey, but we decided to sleep on our decision because we weren't 100% sold on the place. That night, I just happened to open a wedding... Read More magazine that I had collecting dust on the desk and I saw an advertisement for the Palace at Somerset Park. I immediately jumped online to look at their website and decided we should give them a shot. The venue was able to see us the next day, so without hesitation we took the chance. The moment we drove up the driveway, we were intrigued by the outside of the facade. You will probably hear that it looks like the "White House," and it's true, lol. When we walked inside the front doors, the Grand Foyer completely took my breath away. Talk about classy... it was gorgeous and spacious with a stunning chandelier hanging above. When we moved into the West Ballroom and saw the cocktail room, we were just about sold... BUT, they decided to show us the East Ballroom last, and boy - was that the icing on the cake. The moment we walked into the East Ballroom, my mouth dropped, and I looked at my (then) fiance and said - "Yep, this is it." The room is absolutely beautiful - to the point where words can't describe need to see it in person. The high ceilings, fireplace, and elegant ambiance can take your breath away. The cocktail hour room is cozy yet sophisticated, and they were able to light the room blue, which matched our theme. The outside terrace was great for socializing, and we were very lucky to have a warm day without rain. Okay - so that is just a few words on the actual appearance of the location, but let me tell you why this place should be where you marry the love of your life... I worked with Alex and Jillian for the pre-planning and they made sure to answer all of my questions and guide me through every step. Once the day arrived, I was assigned Josh as my Maitre D, and Maya as my bridal attendant. First off - Josh is THE SH*T!!!!!!! He was the most amazing point of contact for the entire night, and he made sure that every single detail from the ceremony to the end of the night was flawless. His professionalism was impeccable, and he made sure that OUR night was not just "another" wedding. He made us feel like June 4th, was the only moment in time that mattered, and for that alone - we would book the Palace over and over again. My husband felt like Josh was one his "boys," and that's not an everyday impression you get from just anyone. Second - there was Maya... She was my bridal attendant, and I can honestly say I fell in love with her. When I arrived that morning, Maya immediately started taking care of all the details so I could get ready. She was like a built in second "maid of honor," and I am so happy to call her a friend now... My sister-in-law's dress completely ripped (about 2.5 feet), and Maya sewed her ENTIRE dress. I couldn't believe my eyes - she was sitting there, sewing the dress by hand. It looked fantastic and she saved the day for the 98th time, haha. At one point, I hugged her right before my ceremony began, and I started crying. She was unbelievable... I could go ON and ON about the Palace, and talk even more about Josh and Maya, but instead - make an appointment to see it for yourself!
