Booking our wedding at the Crystal Plaza was the best decision we ever made!

Booking our wedding at the Crystal Plaza was the best decision we ever made! From the moment we first walked in the door, we were greeted by Max Janoff like we were family - we immediately felt right at home and knew that we had just found our dream venue. By the time we first toured Crystal Plaza, we had already toured quite a few venues (8+) but Crystal Plaza was unlike anything we had seen at the other venues in North Jersey.

The venue itself is absolutely stunning. From the chandeliers, to the cocktail hour space, to the ballroom, to the gardens, to the atrium, to the penthouse bridal suite, to the groomsmen’s vault - every space is beyond gorgeous and distinctly unique. However, what stood out even more to me was the incredible service and staff.

Truthfully, the decision was easy (as it should be)!

Leading up to the big day, Max and his team were very responsive via email (which was so important to us). Their answers to our questions were always helpful and honest. We were so confident that Max and his team would perfectly execute our dream day because they were so detail-oriented and provided us with great feedback based on their personal experiences.

After the wedding, we asked many of our guests - what are the top things that stood out? The answers were pretty consistent - the service, the food, and Max. These are the best answers that we could hope for. We have had MULTIPLE guests tell us this was one of the best weddings they’ve ever attended.

Our wedding day at the Crystal Plaza was one of the best days of our lives, and it’s all thanks to Max and his team. Do yourself a favor and book asap!!

Greatest Venue Ever

It’s hard to put into words how happy we were with Crystal Plaza as our wedding venue. The modern, elegant feel of the venue had us hooked as soon as we toured it. Ronni specifically was a huge factor as to why we felt our venue choice was the right one; it’s not just about the venue but the people involved. Ronni led the entire process from day one. She was so accommodating and made sure anything we needed was taken care of with no concern. We can’t thank her enough for all the work she put into making our perfect day. Every room, from the cocktail room to the ballroom to the bridesmaids suite to the vault (groomsmen suite) is sleek, classy and elegant. The look and feel of the venue speaks for itself, but Ronni and her team really went above and beyond to make our wedding special. The staff and Matre De were extremely attentive and our day flowed effortlessly. As far as the wedding itself, we’re still getting comments from our friends and family on how delicious (and plentiful) the cocktail hour was, and got so many compliments on our add-ons like the Champagne Hand Wall and the sushi, as well as how accommodating the service was. Initially we had 2 bars for the guests, but being our guests were very excited to party, Ronni and her team opened up a third bar for us. This definitely left us and our guests happy as we had guests on the dance floor all night, rather than waiting on the bar lines. We would recommend Crystal Plaza a hundred times over! Your wedding day will most definitely be the day of your dreams!

Best night of my life

If I could give this venue 100 stars, I would. I don't even know where to begin other than... PERFECTION. Pure perfection. From the moment I got to the crystal plaza the morning of the wedding, I felt ease. Everything was taken care of and I have never seen a machine run smoother in my life. They have an answer for EVERYTHING. I at one point looked at my brides attendant and needed a tooth brush, 2 minutes later I had one. Chloe was my hero all night.

This is just one example of the level of service... Another example is Ryan, the Maitre D. Ryan is the wedding coordinator VIP. He made our entire day/night flow with NO HICCUPS- ZERO. Who else can confidently say nothing went wrong at their wedding?! At one point in the reception someone noticed my earring was missing, and sure enough Ryan found it in .2 seconds. This is just what the staff at crystal plaza does, they do it all!!!!

Max Janoff was our planner- he truly outdid himself. We told him our vision, and from there he took care of the rest. His recommended vendors were absolutely in sync with everything we had hoped for in our day and more. Everything over exceeded our expectations, from the lighting, to the cocktail hour, to the band, the florals, the table set up... you name it he made sure it flowed. He knew what details were needed and where and left no stone un-turned.

Leaving crystal plaza the night of my wedding was heartbreaking and I will forever be grateful to them for giving me and my husband the best night of our lives.

For you upcoming brides... there is no other place.

If you are looking for the best wedding venue around with unmatched staff, then book at crystal plaza.
