About

On WeddingWire since 2016

Tucked in the rolling hills of Northwestern New Jersey, Bear Brook Valley is a private venue that hosts only one wedding per day. This farmhouse-chic venue is located only 60 miles outside New York City, but feels like a world away. The moment you step onto the property you'll feel taken into a secret oasis. From the unmatched serenity to the innovative menu offerings, every detail of Bear Brook Valley was considered to create the ultimate wedding experience for today's couple.

The serene grounds feature a vineyard, a heart-shaped pond, waterfalls, bridges, and trails, giving you endless options for those Insta-worthy wedding day photos. Bear Brook Valley is known for their exceptional service and amenities. Get ready onsite in the private suites, say I do at one of the four ceremony locations (all on property), mingle at the hour and a half cocktail hour, and then party the night away in the bright and airy ballroom.

    Book bbv now!

    This was by far the easiest vendor to book for our wedding. BBV was the first venue that we toured, and we instantly knew, they stood out from the rest. BBV pays such close attention to every single detail. They have a solution for every potential issue. My wedding was torrential downpour and BBV didn鈥檛 skip a beat. They quickly setup in the stables and made my dream wedding come to life. Ensle and team were extremely attentive and made sure we had the best days of our lives. The endless food and gorgeous property make this venue worth every single penny. Our guests are still raving about the food. Then at the end of the night, they pack up every single thing that we brought to the venue and had it all ready for pick up the next day to avoid hassle. This is the most stress-free venue. I never once felt anxious or stressed about my wedding day and it was all thanks to Ensle and the BBV team. Because of BBV, I had the best time at my wedding!

    Beyond Exceeds Expectations!!!

    My wife and I had our wedding at Bear Brook Valley in December and the day was a true dream come true. Our wedding coordinator, Ensle, was so amazing to work with leading up to the big day and was always responsive to all of our questions. On the day of, Ensle and the bridal and groomsmen suite attendants were essential to how perfect our day was. I felt like nothing could go wrong with the coordinators by my side. The grounds at Bear Brook valley are absolutely stunning even on days with inclement weather.

    The most perfect day

    This is the perfect venue! The entire Bear brook team is amazing! We worked with Christina and Ensle and they were so responsive and personable. They made our day so perfect. When rain was a potential threat, they kept us calm and helped us think of every case scenario. The grounds are absolutely breathtaking. All of our guests had so many amazing compliments and it all started at the venue. My bridal attendant, Rebecca, was also amazing. Anything we needed was perfect and she gave us the greatest advice day of and helped us stay calm in all the craziness. It is a hidden gem and if you are able to get married here, they will do anything to make your day perfect.
