If you’re looking to have not just a wedding day, but a wedding experience, then The Rockleigh is the venue for you. You’ll find reception halls and ceremony spaces that are full of grandeur, sophistication, and elegance. The Rockleigh is known as one of the best venues in New Jersey to host a luxury wedding. Whether you want your wedding to be traditional or modern, the staff at the Rockleigh will help personalize each detail to your liking.
While we experienced The Rockleigh firsthand, their numerous accolades also prove how magnificent The Rockleigh is at hosting a wedding. The New Jersey wedding venue has been featured in The Knot Hall of Fame, Manhattan Bride, New Jersey Bride, and WeddingWire, and recognized as a platinum vendor by Maharani Weddings.
This elegant wedding venue is located in Rockleigh, New Jersey. Rockleigh is a borough within Bergen County. About an hour’s drive from New York City, the estate is nestled in a small quiet suburb in Northern New Jersey. The colonial roads throughout the town make you feel like you truly escaped city life. Family-owned and operated, The Rockleigh has been hosting luxurious weddings for over two decades.
The estate consists of a lovely lobby, the Grand Pavillon, the Bristol Ballroom, two on-site indoor chapels, and 12 acres of Tuscan-themed gardens. If you want your wedding to be an extravagant fairytale, you’ve found your place.
As luxury wedding photographers, we can say that The Rockleigh does it right. During the day, we took advantage of the natural light and lush greens. The 12-acre gardens are the perfect spot to capture your first looks. The area is quiet and located just outside the mansion. These unforgettable gardens have numerous fountains, unique gazebos, and manicured grounds.
In the gardens, just the right amount of sunlight peaks through the trees, bringing out natural tones and highlighting the deep greens. The fountains are colorfully lit up, which can be an ideal backdrop for some. There is a Juilette balcony overlooking the main fountain that can create a romantically luxurious wedding portrait.
As a whole, the estate is very versatile, and we can capture various styles when taking portraits. Whether you want a full green background, a backdrop with architecture, or something in between, we can find it at The Rockleigh.
Your bride and groom portraits can get even more romantic inside the New Jersey venue. In the ballroom, the centerpiece chandelier is probably the biggest we’ve ever seen. But it doesn’t end there.
The lobby features a marble staircase that ascends under another romantic crystal chandelier with a 6-foot gold-accented mirror on the back wall.
The pictures taken during the reception will also be just as glamorous. Be warned or excited, there will be a sparkly chandelier in most of the reception photos. Depending on how you customize the ballroom, lavish flower displays can fill the room and display beauty everywhere you look.
From the gorgeous fountains to the extremely accommodating staff, this high-end New Jersey wedding venue has it all. The Rockleigh prides itself on being very familiar with multi-cultural weddings, which include Indian and Glatt Kosher. While they are specialists in these two events, they welcome all kinds of couples and cultures into their venue. Customization is also available every step of the way.
As you and your guests make your way through the opulent wrought iron gates, you’ll be immersed in The Rockleigh’s classic elegance. You can get ready in the dressing suites that are furnished with glamorous decor. Take your bridal party pictures in the grand gardens or the enchanting gazebos. A romantic ceremony can be held outside under roman columns.
Ceremonies also can, of course, be held indoors in one of the two on-site chapels. You can say your vows under the glimmering chandeliers that are featured in all of the indoor ceremony options. There’s another decision you have to make when booking the Rockleigh. Will you have your cocktail hour outside next to the flowing fountains or inside the mansion, in the spacious cocktail area?
Make a grand entrance by walking down the marble staircase located in the lobby, and then head to your post-ceremony celebration. The Rockleigh has two reception halls to choose from, the Bristol Ballroom and the Grand Pavillion. The beautiful spaces can serve parties of 275 or more.
The Grand Pavillion serves bigger parties of up to 850 guests and has a private cocktail room which creates a nice flow to the reception. The Rockleigh Reception halls feature spacious marble dance floors, shining chandeliers, fireplaces, and palladium windows. All these features create an elegant backdrop from any angle.
The culinary experience at The Rockleigh is unmatched. The highly trained team creates foods that are both aesthetically pleasing and delicious. They will personally craft a menu dedicated to fit your tastes. The team works closely with clients to exceed their expectations.
The Rockleigh venue is ideal for celebrating your cultural traditions and creating lasting memories. It has plenty of outdoor space for the Baraat procession - that is an integral part of most Indian weddings, multiple ceremony spaces including an indoor option and an outdoor fountain courtyard, and ample dance floors.
For full-day events, there is also a separate private location for a luncheon following the Mandap ceremony. We can see how dedicated The Rockleigh is to creating the perfect setting for your special day.
As mentioned, the Rockleigh can hold over 800 guests - this is a great location to host your big fat Indian wedding!
The expansive space can accommodate large parties very comfortably & makes it one of the most sought after wedding venues in New Jersey for South Asian weddings.
To book a wedding at The Rockleigh, you must have at least 125 people in your party. While this may seem high for some, what The Rockleigh includes in their packages is incomparable.
You’ll get access to the bridal suites, all setup and clean up, valet parking, tables, and linens. On top of that, the staff ensures your wedding dreams come true and provide planning services and event management. All alcohol must be provided by the venue but other outside vendors are allowed.
