The best day of my life, thanks BBV!

Bear Brooke Valley speaks for itself. This is truly the most beautiful venue I have ever been to. This venue was the first venue I visited. During my tour I can recall standing on the back porch and just envisioning having my reception there. I left BBV feeling like that was the venue that I absolutely wanted to book with. I visited the others that I had appointments for and after every one concluded I would say "Its nice, but it's not Bear Brook". I compared all the other venues to BBV and just knew that BBV was the the one for us. Something about the grounds, the people and the atmosphere drew me in. I found BBV to be one of the more affordable venues in North Jersey and one that had so much included in the final price. There were no hidden fees, the number they gave you at the first meeting was the number you paid for at the end (with the exception of add ons if you so desired to add things on, we did) BBV is the total package. Truthfully, you do not need any add ons because what BBV includes is more than enough, but we did opt to add a few more things to enhance our experience even more. The entire team at BBV is incredibly professional and helpful every step of the way. Ensle was amazing to work with. He helped me though every part of the planning process, I can't thank him enough. On the wedding day I had the pleasure of being assisted by Amanda and my husband, by Kyle. They both exceeded expectations. They were by us throughout the entire night to help with anything that we need. Amanda steamed ALL of the dresses, held my dress while walking around the grounds and always made sure there was a drink in our hands. The bartenders made amazing drinks, the spicy marg was one of the best I've ever had! The service staff were fantastic, I had guests coming up to me all night to tell me how great you all were.

My husband and I are over the moon about our BBV experience. We speak so highly of BBV and their staff. Truly, it was a night we will NEVER forget. Thank you for the amazing memories at your beautiful venue.

P.S: My dog came to take pictures with us when we got back from the church and he would not stop barking (*eye roll*). BBV got our dog FRESHLY COOKED BACON as a treat to get him to stop barking... BACON!! Amazing (and hilarious), you guys are awesome. Thank you so much for going above and beyond for us (& Maui)!

A true dream of a wedding venue!

We could not have been happier with our experience at Bear Brook Valley!! From our first tour at the venue, we immediately felt at home there - the gorgeous event space, the serene grounds in nature, and of course, the wonderful and welcoming staff. It was the perfect blend of nature/rustic paired with elegant that we were looking for. We had our tour with Jen and then continued to work with her throughout the whole process leading up to and during the wedding. Jen was incredible and helped make the whole experience seamless. She is truly an expert in this field and really helps as a guide along the journey of wedding planning, and doing it all with a warm smile and upbeat energy! I felt great knowing I could go to her for any question - even if it was related to help finding another vendor, etc. The whole BBV team was wonderful and this really showed the day of the wedding. Our wedding day was everything we hoped it would be and so much of that is because of the beauty and care that BBV offers. The whole day was very stress-free and I felt totally confident that the BBV team was taking care of everything that needed to be done. Everything turned out so wonderful and we got to really experience the day for ourselves without having to worry about every little detail. Our guests were blown away by the beauty of the venue, as well as some of the unique features they offer! The hour and a half cocktail hour was a huge hit, with such a fun and delicious array of food and drinks to choose from. It was so much fun picking from all the amazing food options that BBV offers, and all of our guests commented on how great the food was the whole day - from cocktail hour, dinner and a well-assorted dessert selection. BBV has some really fun add-ons, and really allows you to make your wedding a very custom experience to fit your vision. We had such an incredible day and keep saying that we wish we could do it all again at BBV. A particular rave review came from my niece who said after the wedding “can we come back here as a family every year??”, which I must admit that I agree with that sentiment! If you are looking for a wonderfully caring, stunning and unique wedding venue, Bear Brook Valley is the ideal choice for a truly incredible wedding that you and your guests will look back on with the most wonderful memories!

Thank you Bear Brook Valley for our magical wedding!

I am so grateful for the staff at Bear Brook Valley that made our wedding day a dream come true. We worked with Anastasia and she is a true talent. We loved the planning process and her calm strategic demeanor was perfect. On the day of- we worked with Emma, Rebecca, Tony, and Ensle. They were fantastic and attentive to our entire bridal party. Bear Brook Valley is stunning, the food is unbelievable, the bartenders are excellent, and all the staff were phenomenal. Bear Brook Valley is an established venue with strong relationships with many vendors. The coordination they did behind the scenes the day of was impeccable. I could go on and on. I can't thank the Bear Brook Valley team enough for going above and beyond to make our wedding day more that what we could ever imagine. Thank you!!!
