The Grove, NJ

Are you dreaming of a magical winter wonderland wedding? Just like a White Christmas, it’s a dream come true for many snow lovers to get married surrounded by a glistening, snow-covered landscape. And you don’t need to travel to the mountains to make that a reality: The East Coast typically gets a lot of snow between December and March and has many beautiful spots that are perfect for a winter destination wedding.

Matt and Emily got married at The Grove, a premier luxury New Jersey wedding venue. Its ideal location in Cedar Grove, not far from New York City, makes it a premier East Coast event space with a local small-town vibe and big city options. Snow-tipped trees, rustic lodgings and cozy fireplaces give The Grove a homely feel with a special, quaint touch. The property’s Historic Personette House, dating back to circa 1771, is one of the oldest homes in the country and a stunning contrast to the otherwise contemporary, luxurious details of the venue. From marble floors to extravagant chandeliers and grand ballrooms, you’ll instantly feel pampered on your big day. Whether you prefer warm, golden decorations or a winter-themed interior, The Grove will provide a magical experience as you celebrate with up to 700 guests.

Our beautiful couple took advantage of the weather and enjoyed an unforgettable photo shoot with NYC’s frosty skyline in the background. It’s well worth the trip to see Central Park all covered in white, lit up by Manhattan’s sparkling lights — an image straight from a fairytale.
