An updated, refined take on the classic farmhouse & one of the most sought-after wedding venues in New Jersey. A wedding in the countryside is a beautiful thing. The abundance of greenery all around you. Little paths through the trees begging to be explored. And the sweet, fresh smells that constantly surround you. But, you can have too much countryside! As a wedding photographer here in New Jersey I am used to some creature comforts and necessities. And that is why I love the refined countryside wedding experience on offer at The Grove at Centerton. It has an abundance of lush forest, acres of land, and you’re never far from the modern amenities every wedding needs!
Secluded from view, and set within the glorious Parvin State Park, sits The Grove at Centerton wedding venue. Offering 15,000 sq feet of newly renovated and private event space for you and your guests to explore. The property has been constructed using a traditional design and accented in a rustic farmhouse style. But overall, the design of this venue is refined. Never straying too far into rustic, always keeping their styling super elegant, and finishes polished. However, in juxtaposition to this refined feel, The Grove at Centerton treats its wedding guests to a fully immersive, and authentic farm-to-table experience. Beautifully reflecting the Pittsgrove area’s farming heritage. But don’t worry, you won’t have to feed the pigs!
The very beginning of your elegant countryside experience at The Grove at Centerton starts well before you enter the wedding venue. It begins as you drive into the estate. Stunningly charming, and postcard-pretty, the winding road that guides you through the break in the woods is a pure fairy tale. Once through the trees, and onto the estate, you are freed from the confines of your car and led onto a lush, tree-lined path. This natural walkway is delicately lit by whimsical hanging lighting, and your walk is cushioned by soft leaves underfoot. Guided by the light you arrive at a charming facade, nestled beneath a looming canopy of greenery. Here you and your wedding party enter through an imposing, yet splendid foyer, full of plush furnishings and a cozy fireplace. A few steps further over the threshold, and you’ll find the satisfyingly chic bridal suite, the dream location for your gang to get ready for the day ahead.
As a wedding venue, The Grove at Centerton is just so welcoming. And it’s not just the journey into this countryside retreat that is heavenly, the stunning choice of rooms is also a delight. Like the remarkable Garden Room with its impressive vaulted ceilings, hanging chandeliers, and french doors that open out onto the manicured gardens. Perfect for an indoor/outdoor cocktail hour, complete with a fire pit lounge for those chilly Fall evenings. If you want to host the entirety of your big day in the great outdoors, The Grove can comfortably accommodate up to 400 on their spacious patio. The most serene location, and the perfect backdrop to an intimate outdoor wedding ceremony. Plus it can effortlessly double up as a stylish space for cocktail hour, or portraits with your New Jersey wedding photographer!
The big reveal at this grand, country estate, is the impressive Sweet Birch ballroom. A ‘wow moment’ from your loved ones is guaranteed as they enter this beautifully decorated room. Flawlessly blending characteristically rustic elements with drop-crystal chandeliers and soft pink walls, gifts this room a fresh and inviting feel. Chiavari chairs, neutral-toned floor-length linens, and classic white china offers a clean, uncomplicated finish – perfect for accommodating your dream wedding style
