About Nassau Inn

SAVE THE DATE! Princeton Wedding Showcase April 19th, 2020 www.PrincetonWeddingShow.com

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, just a six-minute walk from the Princeton University Art Museum.


Facilities and Capacity
Couples can celebrate their wedding day with up to 180 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. American cuisine can be prepared for a couple’s wedding menu, with options offered to accommodate most dietary restrictions. These dishes can be served in the following catering styles for a couple’s wedding:

  • Buffet
  • Cocktail reception
  • Dessert
  • Hors d’oeuvres

  • Plated
  • Servers
  • Stations
  • Tastings

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. Though the styles and some of the furnishings are antique, all the technology in the hotel is new and up-to-date, allowing guests to rest in comfort. Suites feature separate sitting, and sometimes dining, areas for guests who choose to upgrade their stay. These appear like little houses straight out of the past.

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.

    Best. Day. Ever!

    Where do I begin?! We got married on 12/13/2019. From start to finish, our experience at Nassau Inn was amazing. Melissa is such a great person inside and out, and her staff is equally as fantastic. We had about 1 year 1/2 engagement, and everyone we were in contact with throughout the process was always professional and accomodating. As for the wedding day itself, everything went on without a hitch and was PERFECT. Food was delicious, the ambiance was spectacular, not a single complaint from anyone! Amongst all the stress, it can be difficult to imagine what the day will be like when it finally arrives. Melissa and everyone at Nassau Inn exceeded our expectations and vision - on a level we didn't even know was possible! We 100000% recommend the Nassau Inn to every couple looking for a truly wonderful wedding experience!

    Fantastic and gorgeous venue with everything you need!

    We were married at the Nassau Inn on November 10th, and can't thank them enough for such a beautiful celebration! From day one of the process, Melissa Dill and all of the staff we encountered at the Nassau Inn were professional, kind, and easy to work with. We moved from NY to CA during the planning process and Melissa always made herself available to speak on the phone or e-mail. We loved the Inn's convenient location to NYC and Philadelphia, and many of our guests chose to stay there. We also loved that they had amazing catering services in house.

    We held our ceremony in the beautiful courtyard. Our cocktail hour was held in the original lobby of the Inn, a gorgeous space with a baby grand piano and red leather couches. The ballroom looked so elegant for our reception, and many guests commented on how delicious the food was.

    We felt totally relaxed day of because we knew everything was in Melissa's capable hands. Her experience and creativity helped us throughout the process, and she was a pleasure to work with. We highly recommend the Nassau Inn for an exceptional experience!
