Venue Spotlight: East Coast wedding venue Crystal Plaza

February 2, 2022

Do you have an East Coast wedding on the books? If you’re on the venue hunt, you’ll want to take a peek at New Jersey’s Crystal Plaza, an 1800s mansion in Livingston that oozes luxury, romance, and history. The expansive venue features several event spaces, lovely gardens, and two impressive getting-ready suites—to name a few highlights. Let’s get on with the tour, shall we?

New Jersey wedding venue

A bit of history: Crystal Plaza was originally a residential mansion designed by famed NYC architect Stanford White, who was behind the Tiffany building on Fifth avenue and the arch at Washington Square Park in Manhattan! When transforming it into a wedding venue, the owners made sure it maintained its 19th century grandeur. The same (now fourth-generation) family owned catering and event company is behind all operations today, so they know every inch of this space and how to make the most of it.

Okay, so the spaces. If you’ve got a big guest list, you’re in luck! Both the Grand Ballroom and the 5-acre property’s surrounding gardens can host up to 350 people for the ceremony.

The grounds offer ever-changing natural scenes as the seasons go on, and the ballroom is perfect for those who prefer to be indoors under ornate columns, gold ceilings, and curtain-dressed glass windows. There’s even a Juliet balcony for an iconic bouquet-throwing moment!

Then there’s The Living Room, an expansive cocktail area that can also accommodate up to 350, another spot for wedding celebrations, cocktail parties, and other festivities. The Atrium, with a fifty-foot skylight and crystal chandeliers, is yet another beautiful space for ceremonies and events of all kinds.
