If you want an elegant venue that has its own chapel, you should book your Park Chateau wedding ASAP! Sal & Brianna absolutely loved this little gem in East Brunswick, NJ. When I pulled up the sun was rising from behind the venue peaking into the stunning meticulously groomed gardens. The beauty of this venue really smacks in you in the face when you pass the metal gated entryway.
Check out Brianna & Sal’s amazing GTKY Long Island Yacht Engagement session last year.

The bridal suite and groom’s suits are elegant and very open. If you have a crazy sized bridal party, you would be fine here for sure! The bride’s suite has windows covering most of the room so if you like natural moments captured with natural light this is for you! From you putting on your wedding dress for the first time to the moment your parents see you, you will be bathed in natural light.
About 95% of couples do a first look if the ceremony and reception are at the same location so they can have the relaxed, natural, joyous photographs they deserve without rushing. Sal’s expression for their first look was absolutely priceless. He’s an amazingly kindhearted animated groom and we loved spending time with him before during and after the wedding.
You don’t have to worry about going far or offsite for portraits for your Park Chateau wedding. There is a multitude of nooks and crannies to capture amazing fun moments with the bridal party and couple. It is especially good during the golden hour!
Brianna & Sal’s bridal party was phenomenal. One of her bridesmaids was a friend of the family so it was great seeing her. My favorite part of the groomsmen was the one young groomsmen with the broken arm and sling with his tux on. Makes him look like a total badass.
The great part of having a Park Chateau wedding is that you can have your ceremony outdoors or they have an amazing chapel on site with giant windows so, again, more of the room is bathed in natural sunlight. It’s a beautiful thing having options for everything. Rain or shine they have you covered.
The greatest was Sal’s entrance. He came in with his arms raised up while the guests were cheering him. Total boss move!
Park Chateau Wedding Reception
The cocktail hour at every Park Chateau wedding is summarized in one word: WOW! Ridiculous amounts of food, outdoor cocktail areas with covered areas for sunny summer weddings. It just happened to be quite hot for Brianna & Sal’s wedding which was in the middle of September.
They had smoke, flames, clouds, and tears at their joyous affair. The grand entrance came with sparkler cannons. Sal & Brianna’s first dance was floating on a beautiful cloud. After a few heartfelt dances with their parents, it was time for the guests to really let loose. I don’t think they stopped dancing until the last minute of the reception! We ended their dancing with the couple shooting off smoke cannons and playing the steel drums. It was an epic experience with Sal and Brianna from the moment I met them and I am so happy I had the opportunity to get to know them and most important hear Sal’s laugh 🙂
