Your happily ever after begins here.

From outdoor patios surrounded by Princeton’s spring, summer and fall splendor to rustic yet elegant indoor venues radiating warmth and coziness on even the chilliest winter days, the Nassau Inn is a magical wedding destination any time of year. Our Palmer Square boutique hotel has been the standard bearer for memorable celebrations since 1937, with generations of Princeton area families allowing us to share their special day with family and friends.

The Nassau Inn is a hotel with a banquet hall and restaurant for couples looking to get married in the Central New Jersey area. This classic venue features all the elegant sophistication of a historic building, with the nearly tangible romance of another era. Couples can find this charming wedding venue in Princeton, New Jersey. Versatile settings, custom tailored planning and catering and gracious hospitality blend seamlessly, ensuring that everything is perfect.

Facilities and Capacity
Couples can celebrate their wedding day with up to 200 attendees. There are indoor and outdoor options at this venue for a couple’s wedding. The patio is a lovely space for a ceremony during warmer seasons. Upon this courtyard patio of stone, couples will find unique backdrops for their ceremony, from a wooden set wall to a bright red door built into a house of dark stone. While the outdoor spaces offer plenty of quirks and privacy for a couples wedding day, they can also choose to have the ceremony in one of the many intimate rooms in the inn. The Nassau Inn has one large ballroom for couples, with a number of other smaller event rooms. The Prince William Ballroom, the largest space, features a wooden dance floor upon carpet, polished wooden molding around a white ceiling, golden chandeliers, subtle golden wallpaper, and other antique accents that add charm and romance to a couple’s wedding reception. The more petite Palmer Room is also available for couple’s wedding-related functions, from an indoor ceremony or an intimate reception to a bridal shower or engagement party. This versatile room has only the limits of a couple’s imagination.

Services Offered
Overnight accommodations are available at this exquisite inn. There is also a bridal suite, and a kitchen team ready to create a wedding cake specially for each couple that comes through the door. Event planning and lighting and sound services can be found through helpful staff members at this wedding venue. Guests will arrive with style thanks to onsite parking, valet parking, and shuttle service, leaving no one behind.

Cuisine
Couples don’t need to worry about ordering outside alcohol for their wedding reception. The fully stocked bar has everything couples will need, from champagne for a toast to premium liquor options.

Accommodation
Guest rooms and suites are available in this venue, each with its own unique vintage charm. In total, there are 157 guest rooms and 31 suites at the Nassau Inn.

History
The Nassau Inn began as the Nassau Tavern in 1756, when it was built by Judge Thomas Leonard. Following his passing, the tavern became an inn, and welcomed many a famous guest. This included the likes of Paul Revere, Robert Morris, and Thomas Paine, a guest who frequented the establishment. Through times of peace and war, surplus and hardship, the inn has stood its ground, making the facility the perfect location for couples to build their foundation of a new life.

    Jaime and the Nassau Inn staff crushed it!

    Working with Jaime at the Nassau Inn was one of the easiest experiences of our wedding planning. She was incredibly flexible with us and quick to respond on all of our questions. The staff were attentive and the food was great! The combination of the venue's staff working with our coordinator over at Magnolia West Events are truly a dream team and helped make our wedding magical and memorable.

    Nassau Inn's reply:

    Kevin,
    Thank you for your lovely review! We were so honored to help plan your special day, along with Danielle from Magnolia West. We have to say, she does an amazing job, and we are always so happy to work with her. We would love to see pictures from your wedding if you have them, and we wish you both the best! :)
