My fiancé and I spent a lot of time researching and checking out a lot of venues. We went to a wedding expo at Jacques where we met Aimee, and went back again to meet one on one. Let me just say every review that raves about Aimee’s work, attentiveness & professionalism is spot on. She was wonderful and promptly answered every email I sent. The room is massive and provides plenty of space, and the cocktail room is currently being renovated. If your looking for a great venue don’t pass up on Jacques Reception Center.Sent on 04/17/2019

Best wedding ceremony/reception site at a great value!
I cannot say enough how grateful I am to Aimee and her staff for making our night truly amazing. She helped us every step of the way in planning everything answering our 100+ questions and gave us a lot of great suggestions and ideas. Plus the food at Jacques is to die for. So many of our guests talked about how amazing the food was at cocktail hour and the reception. We also had our ceremony in the garden out front, which made it very easy for the whole event. I would highly recommend for their exceptional staff, great value, delicious food, and great spaces for any event.Sent on 09/18/2019

Jacques Reception Center is perfect!
WOW WOW WOW! My husband and I visited over 20 venues across New Jersey. Jacques was our last and final stop! Aimee is so easy to communicate with and will accommodate any of your wants/needs. Jacques is the perfect venue for any event, large or small. We had about 130 people attend our wedding and we used the full ballroom, which is beautiful. Aimee worked with us on pricing, menu options, layout, etc. She will give her honest opinion and will never guide you in the wrong direction.Sent on 05/28/2019
Jacques provides candelabra centerpieces that are so pretty and add a nice touch to the room. The top candle can also come off and flowers can be placed on top. We decided to put flowers on top of the candelabra on every other table. Jacques also has a photo booth that can be used for your event! Props were provided and there was a person who stayed with the photobooth all night and helped people put pictures into an album. At the end of the night they even gave us a flashdrive with all of the pictures!
The food...I read tons of reviews about how great the food was, but I had never been to an event here before. Going to the bridal show really helped a lot with this because there was a full cocktail hour! For our cocktail hour, we had three stations (The Wok was a HUGE hit), h'dourves, and chafing dishes. We customized some of the food which was a nice touch! The tortellini with vodka sauce was out of this world! I wish I could eat that every day!
During the reception, we had the fruit cups which was very cute and delicious, followed by the salad, and either Champagne Chicken, Chateaubriand, or Salmon. Everyone loved all of it. The dessert was amazing! A cake was included with our package and it was delicious and absolutely beautiful. The d'oeuvres dessert was sooooo good. The nutella cheesecake dumplings and the cookies and milk were huge hits!
Jacques Reception Center is beautiful and Aimee made everything so special and perfect for us. Thank you!!!
PS Special shout out to Lynn! She is a fantastic waitress that worked with us at the food tasting, bridal shower, and on the night of the wedding. She made sure that we always had something to eat and drink and gave us some great tips along the way! :)
