Florham Park, home to Brooklake, has a small-town charm and allure.

The tone will be set for your guests before they even arrive at the tree lined entrance of Brooklake. Tucked away in Morris County is the lovely town of Florham Park. Indeed, it’s the perfect backdrop to the 150 acres of Brooklake, New Jersey’s premier lakefront event venue.

Beautiful tree lined roads and gracious homes give Florence Park a welcoming country feel. Florham Park ranked NUMBER ONE in New Jersey Monthly’s 2015 Top Towns survey. As your wedding guests drive through the lovely town, they may see why it has earned such a distinction. The tone of the day is already set.

As recently as the late 1960s, Florham Park had just one stoplight, one diner, one hardware store and a small grocery store. That changed in the 1970s when large corporations moved in. However, as Florham Park has grown, this Morris County municipality has maintained its small-town charm and allure.

Brooklake, a Morris County wedding venue, is called a hidden gem. There is a reason for that.

The moment you and your guests pass through the natural stone pillars of the Brooklake entrance, you’ll be surrounded by graciousness. Straightaway the surrounding rolling hills, gardens, nature paths, and lake will please the eye. Once you drive through the tree-lined road within the 150 acres of Brooklake, you will pull up to the exquisitely renovated clubhouse. Step inside and you’ll find a gracious space that blends contemporary style with a traditional manner.

Natasha had her wedding at Brooklake. She emphatically said such a view in New Jersey is quite unique…

“Brooklake is truly a hidden gem in NJ when it comes to wedding venues. Not only were we satisfied with their services, presentation, flexibility, and attention to detail, but our guests even noticed how attentive the staff and beautiful their presentation was. It speaks volumes when guests call you up after the event just to say how gorgeous the venue was and how it was the best east coast wedding they’ve attended.

You really don’t get this kind of view in NJ, it’s truly unique in that it’s slightly secluded allowing you to have the perfect private event. We had some beautiful photos captured during our wedding and we could not have picked a better place! Peter and the entire staff were amazing. I didn’t have to worry about a single thing the day of the wedding and the staff truly made sure I had everything I needed at all times (including water and coffee)! Strongly recommend this venue!!”
