As a New Jersey wedding photographer, I found that I Perona Farms has been one of my favorite wedding venues to return to and photograph couples. The staff is consistently organized, and kind and the place is well-kept clean, and modern. The refinery at Parsona Farms is a modern-day barn-style ballroom. Their refinery conservatory has a retractable glass roof for a perfect plan b in case it rains during your wedding ceremony. A dreamy wedding day can happen at the New Jersey wedding venue with just about any theme. I have photographed a Harry Potter-themed wedding at Perona Farms, and a more traditional kind. Which do you see yourself doing? A themed wedding or more traditional based on a timeless dreamy wedding color palette?
Perona Farms, The Refinery has a bride and groom suite and a bar/suite attendee to assist the couple and their closest friends and family throughout the morning then a different team to assist with photos on the property and the ceremony and then another team to assist with catering/the reception part of the wedding. Perona is super organized and such a dreamy place for a wedding! I highly recommend you book a tour there today!

As a wedding photographer, I have yet to have the honor to photograph a full wedding day at the Park Chateau, but I have been here for bridal prep in their stunning, massive bridal suite and groom suite for prep. I do dream to return to this New Jersey wedding venue to document a full-day experience.
Park Chateau is known for its gardens and church grounds for iconic dreamy wedding photos. There are plenty of hotel rooms for overnight guests and several bridal suite options that are perfect for wedding day prep photos at Park Chateau. As soon as you approach the property you will feel like you escaped the United States and are in France due to the fine resemblance of a french chateau’s landscape and architecture. Inside is modern and timeless.

I have shot at the Madison hotel several times and each time I get blown away by how dreamy the Conservatory looks for a wedding ceremony and reception. The glass ceilings, walls, hanging plants, and oversized chandeliers just make a statement when anyone walks in. For photo opportunities, couples can request to take photos in the train-car restaurant before they open for dinner at 5 pm. As of February 2023, The Madison Hotel is undergoing a remodel – the ballroom is no longer white/gold – it’s now shades of blue for a modern elegant spin on a New Jersey wedding venue. Its historic 1920-1940s era charm is being renovated to a modern version of elegance. The conservatory is not going through any changes as of now – but plan to see a whole new version of the madison hotel ballrooms, guest rooms, cocktail hour spaces, and more, come spring 2023!
