A Perfect DayReviewed on 5/29/2014 Diana
And to think, my husband and I almost didn’t visit because we thought we’d found our place! From our initial visit to our wedding day, every moment at the Park Savoy was perfect. They take care of absolutely everything, are extremely accommodating, and an incredible value for your money. Every time I had a question, it was answered. Any time I had a special request, it was delivered on. Our guests are still raving, weeks later, at how incredible everything was – from the feast of delicious food, to the extremely accommodating staff, to the beauty of the venue itself. I could rave forever about this place, but some highlights include: 1) After our ceremony, the maitre’d swept us upstairs to the bridal suite and brought us all the things we wanted to eat. We had a good 20 minutes of private time together, which was wonderful. And we actually got to eat the food we paid for! 2) They take all the guesswork out of planning. This place is a well-oiled machine without being a wedding factory. And they deal with hundreds of couples, and yet they remember you and your preferences. This place is very personal, which is great. 3) They take beer and signature cocktail requests – we got our Brooklyn Lager and Honkers Ale, and even though they hadn’t made a Pimm’s Cup before, they Googled it and mixed up our perfect signature cocktail. They went through many bottles of Pimm’s on our wedding day because our guests loved it! 4) They threw in some complimentary stations – not that we needed more food in the end, but still. 5) The Park Savoy seems to accommodate ANY kind of wedding – we had a largely unconventional one, and they were very helpful and supportive every step of the way. Our day was absolutely perfect, and this is in large part due to the wonderful staff at the Park Savoy.
A Truly Magical Night!!Reviewed on 4/01/2014 Suzanne S
There are not enough words to describe how amazing The Park Savoy is - and it all comes down to one thing - THE STAFF. From our first meeting with Melanie, we always felt as if we were given the utmost attention throughout the wedding planning process. Melanie was always available to answer our questions, and was always very quick to respond to e-mails and phone calls. The true magic, however, occurred on the actual day of our wedding. From the moment we arrived in the limos to the moment we left at the end of the night, we truly felt like royalty. When our limos arrived at the Park Savoy, Melanie, Dianne, Mary, Julian and Vincent all came outside to greet us - I truly felt like a princess! Dianne and Mary, our two bridal attendants, knew what I needed even before I did. When we went up to the bridal suite to take photos, Mary followed me around with a glass of ice water and helped arrange the train of my gown in all of the photos. During the cocktail hour, my husband and I chose to stay upstairs in the bridal suite so that we could enjoy the food, and Dianne and Mary went downstairs multiple times for us to arrange plates of food from the cocktail hour...it is a good thing we did this as during the reception there wasn't too much time for us to eat since we were so busy greeting our guests and dancing! Dianne and Mary are STARS - they are two of the nicest people I have ever met, and I truly enjoyed getting to know them the evening of our wedding! Once we got downstairs to the reception, Dianne and Mary were available to us the entire evening, and they made sure that we had enough to eat and drink - they also both came in to bustle my gown after the first dance! Julian and Vincent, our maitre'ds were also absolutely wonderful. They made sure that the entire evening ran smoothly. I would WITHOUT HESITATION recommend The Park Savoy - it is an incredible place with incredible people. Our guests are still talking about how amazing the wedding was and how outstanding the food was! Thanks to the outstanding staff, we truly had the most incredible, magical night of our lives.
Breathtaking experience!Reviewed on 2/21/2014 Kelly V
I was married this past July 2013 and this review is WAY overdue. The Park Savoy made my wedding day an absolute dream come true. Besides the grounds and estate being absolutely breathtaking, the staff was such a pleasure to work with from day one. They literally will bend over backwards in order to make all of your visions come true. Seven months later and my family and friends are still talking about the wedding and how beautiful everything was. The food alone (from the cocktail hour, to the dinner, right to the dessert venetian table) was unique, delicious, and enough to blow your guests minds away. Melanie, Barry, Vincent, Mary, and the rest of the Park Savoy Staff, thank you for making my wedding day an absolute dream come true for my husband and I and our family!
If we could give 10 stars to The Park Savoy we would. We got married Memorial Day weekend and still 3 weeks later our family and friends are still talking about our wedding. From Day 1 of the planning process the staff was incredibly helpful, attentive and patient. On the day of the wedding, the service, food and grounds was impeccable. Not one detail was missed! It truly the best day of our lives and The Park Savoy delivered on every aspect. We cannot say enough about this venue. It was the easiest and best decision we made for our wedding! We highly recommend.
The Park Savoy Estate was simply INCREDIBLE!!!!! From our first visit, the sense of warmth and hospitality was felt. EVERYONE at the Park Savoy is kind, hard-working, always happy to help, and seem to genuinely love their job. We had a big wedding-- 250 guests-- and Laura made the entire planning process seamless. From our contract, to the food tasting with both sets of parents, to organizing the decorative details of the cocktail hour, and keeping a perfect schedule day of (so we didn't have to think about it), the entire interaction was not only stress-free but genuinely enjoyable. As a bride, I had a great time working with Laura- she was very easy to get along with and fun to talk details and normal wedding stressors with. Our wedding reception at the Park Savoy was literally a perfect day and we will look back on our wedding day with joy and will recommend the Park Savoy Estate to anyone looking to get married in Northern NJ; it is truly the perfect location with its timelessly elegant property and genuine down to earth staff-- you cannot do better than here.
The best day of my life, regardless of a little rain in July. I had a wedding of over 350 people! We had 24 people in our bridal party and family/friends coming in from Hawaii to Finland. People kept telling me that I wouldn't enjoy myself because there was simply no way I could say hello to everyone, eat, spend time with my new husband, or even dance with that many guests.... Well that is simply was not the way it happened at the Park Savoy. They made sure that I was able to do everything that I wanted. The most special part was that they made 10 minutes for my husband and I to sit in the bridal sweet completely alone and surrounded by food and drink! On top of that, they had someone on hand every second to make sure our families were taken care of. I didn't have to worry for one second if our parents had wine or if Grandma was too cold. I really can't explain how magical it felt to have such a large party but still feel that it was an intimate celebration. I was able to dance, eat, have a romantic time with my new husband AND make the happiest memories. As far as logistics, they worked with the vendors directly and handled all the set up from flowers to the music. We had a band and a DJ and a soloist at the cocktail hour so it was not your typical set up. Yet, everything went off perfectly. Melanie, the manager, was quick to answer every email and phone call throughout the entire process. Moreover, she went above and beyond to come up with great ideas like wedding cake and coffee to go at the end of the night. The venue and location itself has an elegant, almost southern, charm. This was my favorite part as I am originally from western Maryland. We went all the way with the cocktail hour: seafood stations, ice luge martini station, macaroni stations, and ice sculptures, etc. So all of our guests, regardless of where they traveled, from were simply blown away by the over top cocktail hour and the beauty of the New Jersey location. Even with a damp day and short periods of rain, the Park Savoy was prepared with tents set up outside. If I could give The Park Savoy 10 stars I would. Simply the best day of my life.
The Park Savoy Estate was the 7th venue we had seen and we knew right after we left that no other venue would top it. From its antique finishes and beautiful landscape, it just oozed with elegance and sets it apart from your typical wedding venue. It caters to one wedding at a time and that was one of the many reasons we chose this venue. Melanie and the entire staff at The Park Savoy Estate were attentive and professional through the whole wedding planning. The service the day of the wedding was incredible that even my guests came up to me and told me how wonderful the service was. The food was amazing! There is a reason The Park Savoy Estate is ranked top venue in New Jersey. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect place to host our special day!
Every dream came true and beyond! Best day ever.
The Park Savoy went above and beyond for us. They worked with us to accommodate a special ceremony for family-only after our main Western Ceremony. Their staff made us feel like royalty, and they are a well-oiled machine, making it easy for the bride to relax and just enjoy the day. Also, I got MANY comments after from guests saying it was hand-down the fanciest wedding they'd ever been to. If I had to do it all over again, I'd have ZERO hesitations to book them again!
Where do I start? Choose the Park Savoy as our wedding venue was the best decision! From the beginning the staff treated us like royalty. They helped us at each stage, from planning the menu to choosing our cake to easing our anxieties during the wedding planning. On the actual wedding day, my bridal attendants, Lily and Deana were amazing! Along with Sam, they made sure we were fed, we always had a drink in our hand, and that our wedding reception was perfect. People kept asking me who my wedding planner was...I didn't have one! The Park Savoy staff take care of things so well that you really don't need anyone or anything else. Beyond that, the food was OUT OF THIS WORLD! I could go on and on. Definitely recommend this place to all future brides!!!
My wife and I came to the Park Savoy after looking at a few other venues for our wedding day. Immediately upon pulling up to the property we fell in love with it. The landscaping and attention to detail was amazing. We then walked inside and were greeted by Laura, along with the one of the owner Barry. They were so amazing to work with and truly made our wedding amazing. Barry and Laura made us feel like your right at home. The food and the set up of everything inside and outside The Park Savoy there is no way you can be disappointed going here!! I highly recommend the chicken a la park and literally everything else not eh menu!! Thanks to Laura, Victor, Deena, Mary, Michelle, and the rest of the Park Savoy Staff for opening your arms to us like we are family and providing the most amazing wedding day for us. We had an issue with our cake and Laura and Michelle stepped right in and told us not to worry. They surprised us like you have no idea touching up our wedding cake after some confusion between the vendors!! For any further functions we will definitely be coming back here!!!!
The Park Savoy is hands down the best wedding venue around. The quality of the food, service and staff is unparalleled. Guests repeatedly exclaimed that this was the best wedding they had ever attended and it was all because of the Park Savoy ! Their number one priority is making sure the bride and groom are happy! One of the bridal attendants even gave me her own personal baby wipes when I realized I had forgotten my son's. I cannot thank the PS enough for making our wedding day absolute perfection!
The most amazing and memorable time of our lives- it honestly was a dream come true. The staff was excellent and everyone including our guest had an excellent time. Our guest are still talking about Park Savoy to this day, saying how the food and atmosphere couldn’t have been any better. Thank you so much for everything- from helping us plan, to the day of. We truly appreciate everything that you did!
Wonderful wedding experience for our daughter from initial planning stage though the reception. We worked with the sales manager Laura Shannon who was accommodating friendly and professional. The staff at the Park Savoy gave us and our guests a memorable night. All of their recommendations from the florists, photographers and DJ were organized and made the night even more special
Our wedding at The Park Savoy was a dream come true. From the day we signed the contract to the days after our wedding, we have not one complaint. The service was impeccable, the food was outstanding, and every details was covered meticulously. If you want a wedding that your guests will be talking about forever, have your wedding at The Park Savoy estate. They make sure your day is the most magical day of your life!
My wedding was absolutely PERFECT! The Park Savoy staff took care of us and made my husband and I feel like family from Day 1. Sam, Melanie, Mary, and Victor treated us like royalty throughout our special day; constantly checking in to make sure we ate, were enjoying ourselves and had a drink in hand. Our outdoor ceremony was more beautiful than I ever imagined and the staff was great about allowing us to bring in any decor we desired and decorating to our specifications. My guests were wowed by the beauty and elegance of the estate and, of course, the food! The Park Savoy is the whole package for a dream wedding! Thank you Park Savoy!
There truly aren’t words to express how perfect our wedding was, thanks to the incredible team at the Park Savoy. Our initial meeting with Sam left us making our decision before even visiting other venues. Sam and his team literally never said no to any of our requests, nor the requests of our guests. The venue’s classic beauty speaks for itself – there is a true “wow” factor the minute you walk into the building, each area having a different ambiance, all charming, elegant and the perfect setting for our wedding. The food is top notch – delicious, plentiful and diverse. We can say that with confidence, since we had multiple opportunities to eat at our own wedding, thanks to the amazing staff. Sam, Mary, Johanna, Victor and Vincent, along with the entire expert team that treated us, our families and each guest like royalty. Days after our wedding, stories surfaced about the incredible service that our guests received from this team, ranging from a pureed dinner, a gluten free tour of cocktail hour and many meals catered to our guests’ specific dietary needs. We had a front row seat to the Viennese hour, and were able to watch as our guests’ jaws dropped when they walked into the room, balancing plates of delicious desserts back to the ballroom. We know that every bride and groom think that their own wedding was the best wedding they’ve ever been to, but we can’t even count how many of our guests shared the same opinion. The team at the Park Savoy made our wedding day stress free, enjoyable and an overall perfect experience. If you are looking for a wedding venue, look no further and please invite us. We can’t wait to go back and enjoy it all again, it was truly the most incredible venue and team we could have asked for. To Sam and team: thank you for everything… we love you!
We had our wedding at The Park Savoy a few months ago and it was AMAZING. Every visit we made there was just wonderful and we were always taken care of and truly listened to. They made you feel like you were the only wedding there. The grounds of the Park Savoy Estate are astonishing for any season you choose you will not be disappointed. Every detail of this venue is clearly thought out and breathtaking. The service from all of the staff was beyond what I could have imagined. They are so professional and dedicated to you and your big day and will go above and beyond to make sure it is the most memorable day of your life. The bridal suite was incredible and everyone loved getting ready up there with the fire on to keep us warm! My bridal attendant Joanna was always there for me holding my dress or laying it correctly or getting me whatever I needed. I did not have to think about any details except for marrying my best friend and having the best day of my life. Everything went smoothly and I still have compliments to this day! We had a lot of guests who had traveled a long distance and they were blown away. SO many compliments on the food and the abundance of it as well. There is something for everyone there. The boardwalk station, the fresh mozzarella, seafood, sushi, pasta, Italian food, etc. You can really find everything you are looking for. They even have a Cuban station which my side of the family LOVED. The Park Savoy is such a beautiful place inside and outside and I could NOT have asked for a better experience! Thank you!!!
Thank you for everything you guys all did. I honestly don't know where to begin. We felt so welcome from the moment we walked in to check out the venue. The attention to detail, the personalized attention, the food...I mean the food!! Three months after the wedding I'm still hearing rave reviews about the Martini Luge station...do it! Everything was so smooth. My wife and I shared a fantastic first meal as newly weds in the bridal suite during the cocktail hour and got to sample all of the amazing food. It was such a calming experience and the perfect way to start a marriage. Vincent and Mary were always two steps ahead of us all night long, thank you. Melanie was our wedding planner and went out of her way to get us the beer and the specialty dessert shots we wanted among much, much more. Thank you Melanie! Do yourself a favor and set up an appointment to visit the venue. They will make grandiose promises and follow through on each and everyone. They are a class act!
My husband and I were married on 11/06/2016 and The Park Savoy was the perfect wedding venue. From the moment we first met Sam, our wedding and it's preparation was flawless. The staff was extremely helpful and anticipated our needs throughout the wedding. Our guests are still talking about the food, the venue, and how it was the best wedding they have ever attended. Special thanks to Laura and my bridal assistants.
Just wow. I don't even know where to begin. From the day we visited The Park Savoy as a potential venue until the day we returned to pick up our things the day after the wedding, has been simply incredible. Sam, Mary, Victor and Liliya...thank you from the very bottom of our hearts for a truly magical experience. Our wedding was more than I could ever dream of because of each and every one of you. Food - indescribably delicious. Service - professional, kind, tentative, FUN, helpful, and did I say FUN! Everyone who worked here were seemed to genuinely want to make our wedding day special. I've heard people talk about what feeling like a princess is like and now I know. If you want to be treated like royalty on your wedding day and not have to worry about ANYTHING on your big day - The Park Savoy is the place to go. Thank you to ALL the staff for this absolutely wonderfully amazing experience! We love you!
Best wedding venue from our first visit to the wedding day! Staff is top notch, every single detail was perfect! The ceremony and reception were beautiful and the food was outstanding! Everyone there made you feel like part of their family. A big thank you to the Park Savoy for helping to make our daughters wedding day perfect in every way!!
My husband and I had our wedding here last night and I've got to say, this place is beyond incredible. From the impeccable service, to the delectible food, they've really outdone themselves. Mary was my bridal Attendant and she was the sweetest woman. She was there every part of the day making sure I was comfortable and relaxed. It really helped having her there especially when it was time to walk down the aisle and my nerves were crazy. She was amazing. Our maitre D Vincent was also outstanding. He assisted with every step of the planning. Whenever I had a question he was quick to get back to me and always very attentive. I've had so many guests tell me that our wedding was the best they've ever been to and I truly feel it was because of the amazing staff and gorgorus venue. Another great thing about the Park Savoy is the fact that it is so beautiful you don't need much decor. We had a winter wedding and the place was beautifully lit with Christmas lights which made for a perfect winter wonderland. I truly cannot express how amazing my wedding was. If you're looking for class and amazing, delicious, food I highly suggest The Park Savoy Estate !
Our wedding at the Park Savoy was simply, absolutely perfect. From our venue tour about a year before the wedding, through our actual wedding day, the Park Savoy team was nothing but incredible. We toured with Sam, who was helpful, kind and answered all of our questions – explaining different options for consideration as well. He also kept us caffeinated with the Park Savoy’s coffee, which is seriously the best coffee I’ve ever had in my entire life. Leading up to our big day, we worked with Cathy and Laura who were a pleasure and helped us keep everything organized. We had both our ceremony and reception at the Park Savoy, and opted to get ready there as well. We arrived in the morning and had delicious pastries and coffee in both the bridal and groom’s suites, which are both beautiful. The day went by flawlessly, with Laura checking on us often to make sure we were all set. A few hours before the ceremony, Mary, our bridal attendant arrived, and was a true JOY to be with. Mary was attentive and amazing the entire night – she anticipated things before we even knew we needed them and helped make our night as perfect as it was. If you’re lucky enough to have Mary as your attendant, cherish every moment – she’s incredible!!! Our ceremony was inside the ballroom and was beautiful – the Park Savoy team had the space set up just as we wanted. Julian was our Maître D and was super friendly, attentive and kept the night moving smoothly. Our guests are still raving about cocktail hour, dinner and desserts. The presentation and service was top notch; we knew how everyone raved about the Park Savoy and their food and service, but there was nothing like experiencing it first hand. We had our dream wedding thanks to the Park Savoy – now we can’t wait to be guests at a wedding there!
My husband and I just got married here on December 17, 2016. Words cannot describe our experience. The venue and staff are just amazing. From the stunning decor to the exceptional staff our experience was just this from the moment we walked into the door. They were willing to work with us and accomodate our every need. Sam was a absolute pleasure to work with. He made my family, husband and I feel like his own family when we first met him. My bridal attendants were wonderful at taking away any stress (wasn't much) from my day. My guests are still raving over their experience. Many have told us that this was by far the best wedding they have ever been to. The food was to die for. Everyone couldn't believe how much food there was and how everything tasted amazing. We truly wish we could redo that day again just to enjoy every moment all over agin. Thank you to all the staff who made this day absolutely perfect for my husband and I.
