We were lucky enough to have our wedding at the Barn at Perona Farms November 1st 2015 -- and we can't say enough about how fantastic the venue is! Our guests are still raving about this unique location. I know they're already booked up super far in advance, but that's because it's really a special place to get married. We looked all over NY and NJ for a venue that both has a unique look and feel and provides an all-inclusive option and it's really hard to find both. When we visited the venue for the first time last year I said -- "I'd be happy getting married here today with no decorations, everything else we do will be icing on the cake." And that was a great starting point. We felt so comfortable knowing that our venue had a natural charm and we were starting with something that already felt beautiful vs. a standard NJ hall.
Brides - trust the vendor when they say that the food will be even better than the tasting at the buffet. I'm not sure why they use the buffet as the tasting because the food on your wedding day will be exponentially better than what you taste!! Our friends and family were stunned by how good the food was! Choose the beef tenderloin and salmon and you can't go wrong!
Marley and the day of coordinator made sure our day was perfect. Everything from making sure we each had a plate of food in the cocktail hour to a drink in our hands all day. We felt pampered and taken care of all day. They also worked so hard to make sure we could have an outdoor ceremony - which we weren't sure would work in November! We couldn't be happier with our choice! Thank you Perona!
My husband and I were married at Perona Farms in Apple Orchard. We live out of state. It was no easy task coordinating a wedding from another state, but from the beginning Marly worked with us beyond what I ever would have expected. She answered any and all questions I had immediately with thoroughness. They did not overlook any details. We had our reception in the Venetian Room. Kevin, our maitre’d, was phenomenal. He was so attentive to our every need. He had everything covered from the beginning to the end. Oh and we can't forget about the food. It was outstanding. Everyone keep saying how good it was. I could not have asked for a more perfect venue. Everyone who attended complimented us on the venue and how beautiful it was. I would highly recommend Perona Farms to anyone getting married and wanting an outdoor ceremony. Thanks again for everything!!
From the moment we walked in and spoke with Marly we knew we had the place we wanted to do our reception. From the rooms to the views this is the spot. Marly took care of us completely and there is not one thing she did wrong. She always answered any questions and helped us any way possible. We had the Florentine room and it was set up perfectly. We had Sean as our Maitre d and he was outstanding. He got us everything in the cocktail hour so we were able to eat and enjoy some of the hors d'oeuvres before entering into the reception. The food is outstanding and not one person had a complaint about the food. Everyone that came raved about how good the cocktail hour and reception food was and how it came out hot. We plan to do the brunch on our anniversary. Thanks again Marly and Sean.
We had our wedding at Perona Farms on Septemeber 27th from the start when we went to visit the venue we just fell in love! The staff was so attentive and friendly and the grounds are beautiful! Marley was our wedding coordinator and I can't begin to say how thankful I am for everything she did to make our wedding day perfect she answered all my questions throughout the whole process and everything on that day was exactly how I dreamed it to be! It was truly the best day of our lives and everyone had such an amazing time and raved about the food especially the cocktail hour! Thank you Marley and the Perona Farms team for making our wedding so memorable!
Amazing and beautiful! Working with Perona Farms was such a smooth and pleasant experience. Marley was our event coordinator and was extremely helpful during the months and weeks leading up to our wedding day. She answered all of our questions, and did an amazing job setting up all of our decorations and special additions, such as the candy buffet, Generations of Love table, photo collages, and more. Perona Farms is a beautiful venue not needing anything added. It is truly soft & elegant, and all of our guests raved about it - the cocktail hour area outside is beautiful, the large staircase inside, and the Florentine Ballroom is super nice and intimate. The food = outstanding!!!! We have nothing but GREAT things to say about Perona Farms. We plan to visit their Sunday brunch every year for our anniversary, too. Great service, great staff members, great food, great ambiance. This place has it all. Thank you to everyone at Perona Farms for making our wedding a night to always remember!!
Perona Farms is amazing, and all the great reviews prove it! We didn't even look anywhere else when trying to find a reception venue. We saw the Barn and fell in love. It was such an incredible day and that was all thanks to the Perona Farms family. Right from the start we worked with Marley. She was always available to talk if I had one of my millions of questions about the big day and decorating, and basically anything else that popped into my head. She was so wonderful and helpful, we can't thank her enough! Our Maitre'D, Kevin was so fantastic, he made sure everyone was taken care of, from the moms & dads to the MC & photographers! He was always making sure we had something to eat and that we stayed on track with everything we planned. He was more then amazing! All of the wait staff and bar tenders were also great and nice to everyone. and THE FOOD! If you ever get a chance to go to Sunday Brunch, I highly suggest it. I wish I could eat at Perona everyday, their menu is huge and phenomenal! My mom STILL talks about the smoked salmon! I could go on forever about how magical and perfect our wedding was at the Barn at Perona Farms. I wish I could re-live it everyday!
Our wedding was complete perfection! Hildegard and the team at Perona Farms are total professionals and they executed everything flawlessly for my special day. I cannot thank them enough. I still have guests raving about the amazing food. The value, service, every detail was on point and worth every penny. The prime rib and salmon were amazing and the cocktail hour was so tasty! Seriously Perona Farms knows how to throw a wedding. The Barn location is stunning and blew all of our guests away. Auggie was our maitred and he was so sweet and tended to our every need. We didn't want for anything, Auggie was always two steps ahead. Thank you Auggie for being such a great Matired and thank you Hildegard for being to patient and the entire team at Perona for making our day one we will never forget!
We had our wedding at the Barn at Perona Farms on August 15th. I have to say, they exceeded our expectations. It was spectacular and magical and everything I wanted and more. The food was amazing, they had a drink on the way before we finished the one before and they never missed a beat. Incredible! I highly highly reccomend this gorgeous place and our guests have not stopped talking about our wedding still 2 weeks later.
I just had the pleasure of having Perona Farms host my wedding Ceremony and Reception. Marlee was a pleasure to work with. The food was incredible the staff were very polite and on point with everything. Nothing went wrong. They made sure our night went perfect and we can not thank them enough for everything they did for us.

Perona Farms was an awesome venue for my wedding. They worked with me on every step and made my day special
I chose Perona Farms (The Barn) because it was a unique location that wasn't your traditional style venue. I am so glad that I had my wedding there. First I met with Hildegard who gave us the grand tour and booked our event. She was so nice and accommodating! She helped us every step of the way! There were so many different things included if you book a wedding at Perona Farms like, The cake, the event coordinator, the Matradee, the delicious food and the super professional staff. The Barn at Perona Farms is the most beautiful venue I have ever been in. You will not regret having any sort of even at this establishment!! All my friends and family kept complimenting the venue on our wedding day. Perona farms truly made my wedding day a day to remember.
After being guests at dozens of our friends weddings, my husband and I were determined to find a venue we hadn't been to before. We dedicated only one weekend to venue searching because once we saw Perona Farms, we decided we didn't need to see anything else. We had our reception in the Florentine room, and it was PERFECTION! Our friends and families continue to gush about how wonderful the evening was! Coming from Northern New Jersey, we were both accustomed to over-the-top weddings, and while they are all beautiful, they lack a sense of intimacy. Perona Farms was able to accommodate our 210- person party comfortably and still maintain the intimate feeling we both wanted so much. Our wedding coordinator, Marley, answered emails promptly, paid close attention to detail, and was purely professional, all while maintaining a relaxed confidence (this is something a bride cannot take for granted; it helped keep me calm throughout the entire process.) All the little details were carried out exactly as I pictured them to be. Our Maitre' de, Kevin, did a wonderful job keeping our glasses full and reminding us to eat (My husband enjoyed the cocktail hour- I was too busy talking to guests, so I regretfully missed out). We were fortunate enough to have had beautiful weather, so our cocktail hour was both inside and out. Spreading all the stations out was wonderful- no one was ever waiting in line for food and it enabled mingling amongst our guests. North Jersey venues typically "wow" guests with an over-abundance of food at cocktail hour, and while it looks appealing, the menus are typical and the concept is wasteful. The food at Perona Farms is fresh, delicious, and unique- and our guests appreciated this tremendously! Between the gorgeous grounds and new cosmetic updates, our pictures are sure to be amazing. Perona Farms is able to give you class, elegance, intimacy and value like no other venue I've seen...it was truly our perfect day :)
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Perona Farms! My husband and I were married in The Barn, and from the very first day I saw it almost a year and a half ago, I knew I had to be married there. It is such a unique and stunning venue and all of our guests fell in love with it's beauty. The staff is an absolute dream to work with, and the food is phenomenal. If you are looking for a rustic wedding venue, this is the ONLY spot in NJ! It is just perfect, there are no other words to describe it. Working with Mark was a dream and our guests had the best time! Highly recommend!!!!
All I can say is: wow!! Perona Farms made our wedding day absolutely perfect, from beginning to end. The Barn is incredible. From the moment we saw it, we knew it was the ideal place for our wedding. Also, the staff there goes above and beyond to ensure that things are perfect...they are professional, patient, attentive, and just overall amazing! (Without Tracey, Justine and Courtney, we never could've done it!) Then, there's the food!! The food there is just incredible. They serve it family style so that you can pick and choose what you want and eat as much or little of everything. Cocktail hour was unique and delicious, including pizza, homemade sausage, shrimp and various other offerings. The reception was no different: more amazing food! The steak and salmon was some of the best we ever had. Then, to finish the night...donuts! Fresh homemade mini donuts at every table were earning raves from the guests (some even searched other tables for extras!). Several of our guests who are already married say they want to do it again just so they can get married at Perona Farms...we'd do it there again in a heartbeat! Thank you for our perfect day.
All I can say is BEST VENUE EVER. We got married in the barn and it was beyond perfect. The whole place is unique and beautiful and the staff and were all incredible, flexible, and attentive. People are still telling us how outstanding the food& venue was. We had our ceremony downstairs in the barn due to it still being too cold outside. Downstairs is also where the cocktail hour is held so I had some concerns about how they were going to remove all of the chairs without our guests having to stand around awkwardly while they transition into cocktail hour. Well, in a blink of an eye it was like the ceremony never took place in there and everyone was eating &drinking. Hildegard, the event sales manager, was very responsive during the planning process &while on vacation the week prior to our wedding we worked with one of the owners, Tracey, who was so friendly and beyond helpful. The ceremony coordinator, Justine is probably one of the nicest people ever. She was so calming & helpful during the rehearsal and again on our wedding day. She even made special accommodations for our rehearsal. The day of the wedding she checked on me repeatedly to make sure I was ok and provided us with helpful ceremony tips. We had to go back to the barn the next day to pick up our decorations and cake. Justine met with us briefly and again was just so thoughtful you felt like she was your best friend. Our Maitre D', Kevin, was also incredible and attentive. He made sure we had everything we needed all night long. He also reminded me multiple times to eat- which as the bride you totally forget to do. Everything was just perfect from the venue to the staff to the food. It could not have been a more perfect wedding. The grounds are also gorgeous for photos.
