Understated glamour and elegance at a landmark venue that has been hosting happy couples for over 25 years. As a wedding photographer in New Jersey, I am always looking out for venues in the state that have that wow factor backdrop, and this is one of them! The Valley Regency wedding venue in Clifton, New Jersey that ticks so many photography boxes I couldn’t feature it. Besides the amazing photo ops, this place has everything you need to host a truly magical ceremony and reception, with an emphasis on fine cuisine and a heavenly experience for your guests. Got one space left on your wedding venue visit list? You can now consider it full!
The Grand Ballroom at Valley Regency, is magical and classy in equal measure. When it comes to your wedding ceremony, the only place you should consider at Valley Regency is their romantic gazebo. They have an indoor option, and of course, it is stunning. But for me, the raised gazebo outside is beyond compare. It looks like something out of a movie, and it frames your nuptials just so delightfully that I cannot imagine tying the knot anywhere else in this venue! Following your lavish ceremony, your thirsty and hungry guests can be guided to one of the venues’ enchanting cocktail areas for refreshments, before entering the Grand Ballroom for the reception dinner. As the name suggests, this room is dramatic and classy with a magical atmosphere throughout. Decorated in swathes of gold, with crystal chandeliers and polished stone tiling – this is not a room that lacks luxury, but it is also versatile. Having been recently renovated, the ballroom at Valley Regency can be customized to suit any wedding guest numbers up to 350, with divisible walls that can be utilized to make the room larger, or more intimate. Alongside this, the expert production team can use their state-of-the-art lighting equipment to create whatever kind of mood or theme you desire for your reception.
Upon arriving at the Valley Regency wedding venue, you are greeted with wonderfully lush gardens and grounds that are nothing short of immaculate. During the day their outside space is an oasis of calm tranquility and during the summer months a great place to soak up the sun with a glass of something cool. But as night falls, these gardens come alive! Elegant stone walkways are delicately lit come nightfall to illuminate your evening stroll and highlight some of the prettiest parts of their outside space. In particular, a wedding photographer’s dream, a lily pad filled pond, the perfect backdrop to your big day portraits. The entire garden Valley Regency is perfect for a cozy midnight walk or candid wedding photography session.
In order to create a wedding with the ‘wow factor’, you need an experienced team to coordinate it from the beginning, and that’s just what the Valley Regency wedding venue has, in-house. Any couple who books with this fabulous New Jersey wedding venue will benefit from their dedicated, and super friendly event coordinators, who will always be on hand to deliver (almost) everything you could desire for your special day. Alongside the aforementioned lighting team, they can also provide live music, DJs, reception decoration, and a very luxurious bridal suite! Their dedication to customer service is notable because no big day goes without a hitch, but I have seen these guys pull it out of the bag with a smile, on more than one occasion. It’s best also to think of this venue as one to customize, not quite a blank canvas, but a space that you should tailor to create the wedding of your dreams.
