    Awesome Venue!

    We were looking for a unique wedding venue in NJ and Grounds for Sculpture definitely hit the mark. We loved that you have plenty of options to choose where to hold your ceremony, cocktail hour and reception depending on the sculptures you like/venue size that you’re looking for. The greenery of the grounds came out beautifully in our photos.

    Prior to the wedding the GFS event coordinator Lauren was in touch with us whenever we had questions and ironed out many details. On the day of the wedding there were tons of staff and volunteers around to direct our guests to the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception (thanks Marcie and Jenna!). They also had golf carts for anyone who wanted a ride. They were flexible with providing us a bridal suite and room for the groomsmen adjacent to the reception area.

    So many of our guests complimented both the cocktail hour and reception food and the beautiful cake that we had made on site. Also, awesome food tasting in Rats kitchen! Constellation provides great catering services and Kathy the director of catering helped as our point of contact for planning the wedding and coordinating with GFS. Mike the restaurant manager helped us to custom order some special drink requests we had and Mario the catering coordinator helped pull together loose ends in the week or two leading up to the wedding! Don’t be discouraged if catering is slow with returning emails - the team will pull it all together in the end!

    This past September we celebrated my daughter's wedding reception at the exquisite Rat's Restaurant located in the midst of the dreamy, artistic Grounds for Sculpture. Under the expert and personalized guidance of our event coordinator, Kathleen Newman, who is so upbeat and fun to work with, our evening was filled with exceptionally and beautifully prepared cuisine, a well- organized timeline during the evening and engaging and excellent service from the entire staff. We were so appreciative of Kathleen for her assistance and consistent follow up with all of our questions during the planning process. It was a joy to work with her and we would like to thank all of the staff, including the bartenders, servers, chefs and kitchen staff, for facilitating and executing a fabulous wedding reception dream come true!
