Brooklake: New Jersey’s acclaimed wedding venue with indoor and outdoor opportunities.
Brooklake is the perfect indoor / outdoor wedding venue in New Jersey’s Morris County, bordering Essex County. Our couples get all the benefits of hosting an indoor/outdoor wedding while minimizing the inherent concerns of mother nature. You have the opportunity to set up your different areas so as to create a closed circuit for your guests to travel. The outdoors feel like a natural extension of the celebration indoors and the wedding outdoors can easily move into the interior as needed for photos or to cut the cake.
Step out of the ballroom to the beautiful veranda.
Brooklake facilitates the ebb and flow of guests moving from indoors to out and back in again. This way those who just want to sit and take in the natural surrounding can do so while others kick off their shoes on the dance floor. Want a breath of fresh air? Sip a cold drink and bask in the glow of the outdoor fire pit. Then come back inside to the beautifully renovated ballroom.
While indoor/outdoor weddings work great most of the year, the proportion of time spent outside to inside will depend quite a bit on the time of year. After all, mid-July can get hot, so consider holding pre-wedding cocktails in the patio area followed by a brief garden reception and then move things inside to the ballroom where the AC is always pumping. Of course, the gorgeous backdrop of the lake, trees and gardens makes for a lovely outdoor ceremony.
