New Jersey’s newest premier landmark venue opened its gates after hosting its very first wedding on Saturday, March 4. Since reservations first became available in April of 2016, engaged couples from all over the tri-state area and beyond are booking their special days every week at the Park Chateau Estate & Gardens.
Brothers Barry and Joe Maurillo – along with childhood friend and long-time business partner, Vito Cucci – have spent decades operating two of the best wedding and event venues in the Garden State: Nanina’s in the Park and The Park Savoy Estate. Now, with the Park Chateau, the trio has added another spectacular location to their repertoire.
The elegant East Brunswick venue is redefining the traditional American wedding. The facility is modeled after a French chateau, appointed with unique, hand-picked European antiques, magnificent crystal chandeliers, museum quality art and its own charming architecture. The dynamic location is capable of holding both a reception and wedding ceremony, which can take place in the quaint on-site chapel or the formal estate gardens alongside a glistening pond.
“The formal estate gardens emulates the atmosphere of the Gardens of Versailles in France,” said Barry Maurillo. “The property has been transformed into a truly one-of-a-kind, unparalleled wedding venue.”
The property is located on 15 sprawling acres and can accommodate approximately 400 guests. The bridal salon, situated near the bridal suite, offers hair, make-up and massage stations, plus extensive pampering from personal bridal attendants, to lessen the stress on a bride’s big day.
The Park Chateau has a cocktail area that extends over several rooms, including a wine room and a library equipped with comfortable seating, exceptional service and two fully-stocked bars. The venue’s grand ballroom is the perfect place to end a night. Newlyweds are seated side-by-side in front of a cozy fire and surrounded by their loved ones. The ballroom’s custom lighting and lively entertainment are just a couple more accents that help the Park Chateau raise the bar.
The Park Chateau Estate & Gardens ensures “Quality, Excellence, and Family.” Following in the footsteps of its sister locations, the venue combines remarkable ambiance, mouthwatering food, unbeatable service and genuine hospitality. It does all this in order to live up to its mission of hosting New Jersey’s best weddings for decades to come.
