Venue and Catering
Hamilton Farm was an incredible venue. Putting aside the setting—which is stunning—the HF team excels at the little things. They do one wedding a day so you are their complete focus the day of your wedding. The team was awesome: we met with Colette and Brogan weeks in advance, and the bridal attendant was super helpful the day of the wedding. The food and drinks are outstanding, and the amount of food is jaw dropping. After the wedding, so many of our guests told us that they could not believe that there was still a whole dinner at the reception after all of the food they had eaten at cocktail hour! HF lets you do a tasting a month before so that the food is in season and works with you to make sure you have whatever options you’d like.
Now to the property: the grounds have everything from a historic mansion that is perfect for wowing your guests (with bedrooms to stay in the night before and get ready in the day of), a beautiful garden, a barn, a giant ballroom, an intimate afterparty space in the Members' Lounge, multiple places to host a ceremony, and a beautiful landscape. We used the upper lawn to get married, the mansion for the cocktail hour, the ballroom for the reception, and the Members' Lounge for the after party. HF is an excellent place for pictures—your photographer will love the ivy covered walls, the beautiful rooms in the mansion and the awesome views from the lawns (and your pictures will end up great)! It’s truly a spectacular place to get married, and very sought after so you should book them quick!
The biggest compliment I could give them is their ability to be flexible and accommodating. My youngest brother has autism, and I very much wanted him to be a part of our wedding by walking down the aisle. When we were still looking, I made a point of explaining to potential venues that we would need an accommodating and helpful team to ensure he could walk down the aisle the day of, but also that the team would need to work with us for the months leading up to the wedding so that my brother could practice. While other venues were very nice and supportive, Colette and HF got it. For the months and weeks leading up to the wedding, Colette would coordinate times with my mom for my brother, my mom, and his aide to come to HF and get used to the grounds, the mansion, the rooms, and walking down fake aisles for any of the ceremony options. HF knew how important it was for my brother to be a part of this wedding and made sure we had every opportunity to make sure he was set up for success. Day of the wedding, my brother took pictures with our family and walked down the aisle. I truly do not think that would have been possible without the support and flexibility of HF - I owe a lot of that special moment to them.
The second big time they were flexible is with our rain plan. While HF has a good rain plan, we were about to get hit with a nor’easter and thought that we needed something different. After long discussions, they agreed to have us rent a tent for the upper lawn that was connected to the mansion so that we could have our ceremony “outside” and keep our guests warm and dry. It was the first time to our knowledge that HF used a tent like this for a ceremony, and while there were a lot of details that needed to be sorted out, they agreed and executed it perfectly. It was a stunning ceremony space and the flow of the evening was perfect. I cannot thank HF enough for everything they did to make our wedding spectacular!

The absolute best!
Hamilton Farm exceed all of our expectations for our wedding day. Not only is the property beautiful, but every person who works there is unbelievably helpful and kind. Colette and Brogan were wonderful to work with. They went above and beyond to ensure that our wedding day was special. I can't thank Hamilton Farm and their amazing staff enough!

I could not be happier with how my wedding turned out at Hamilton Farm Golf Club! Throughout the entire process they were incredibly helpful and responsive, always willing to set up last minute meetings with my mom and I whenever we had any questions at all! Colette, the event coordinator at Hamilton, was half the reason I chose the venue (with the other half being the beauty and cleanliness of their facility). I can't say enough about how wonderful it was to work with Colette. She was so on top of everything and was so flexible with changes we wanted to make to decor, menu, etc. They don't nickel and dime you at Hamilton like many other wedding venues do and they are a non-tipping facility. They really made the entire wedding planning process so easy and stress-free. I highly recommend considering Hamilton for your wedding!
A great place for a wedding!
great venue and great staff! The grounds are so beautiful and the food is delicious!
Lee-Ann and her entire staff at the Hamilton Farms Golf Club will ensure that your next event is seamless! They are true pros that make every occasion special. They are courteous, helpful, inviting and most of all hard working. The grounds are amazing; the over looking golf course and club houses add a picturesque view found nowhere else in NJ. And their spacious "Tent", which is more like a semi-permanet structure, lends great to LED up-lighting and intimate parties. They know what they're doing and how to deliver a spectacular product and service each and every time!
