Facilities and Capacity
This country club welcomes a maximum of 170 guests for a couple’s wedding. The ceremony can take place in the romantic white gazebo with its grey roof and its views of the rolling countryside. This includes lakes, trees, and the greens of the golf course. This gazebo is located at the far end of a patio paved in brick and stone, where guests can sit in white folding chairs to watch as couples begin their lives together. The patio is surrounded by scenic views but also by flower beds, trees, and bushes. This adds life and greenery to a couple’s wedding day. While guests enjoy a cocktail reception on the patio or in a smaller room of the clubhouse, couples can traverse the well-manicured golf course to take wedding portraits. They will find mature trees, a wooden bridge, and plenty of greenery. In the ballroom within the country club, they can reconvene with their guests for a magical night of dinner and dancing. This ballroom features high ceilings with a golden chandelier hanging down in the center of the room, to complement the golden wall sconces adding to the glowing ambiance. The row of French doors, with arched windows above them, let in plenty of natural light during the day.
At this venue, couples hosting all wedding-related events are welcome. Not only does this space accommodate ceremonies and receptions, it can also serve as the setting for bridal showers, engagement parties, and rehearsal dinners. The country club offers event items and rentals for couples, including chairs with chair covers, drapery, furniture, and tables. The club also offer all-inclusive packages, so that experienced staff can help take care of all the details of a couple’s wedding day. For couples who want to have more of a hand in their wedding process, the knowledgeable staff can still assist with event planning, setup, cleanup, and more. In-house bar and catering services provide couples with experts who know the venue well. Customized wedding cakes straight from the kitchen means less travel time for a delicate dessert.

There are not enough positive things I can say about Old York Country Club. First of all, the wedding banquet director, Melanie, is phenomenal. I sent her a TON of emails over the course of a two-year engagement, and she responded to each one quickly and in detail; she also was open to making adjustments in order to accommodate my specific wedding vision. On the wedding day, she kept everything running on schedule, helped bustle my dress, and made sure everything was executed as planned. She was patient, professional, positive, and organized...exactly what I needed as a detail-oriented bride!
Like Melanie, the staff was extremely professional and accommodating. My personal assistant, Stacy, was especially fantastic. Because it was raining on my wedding day, she carried the train of my heavy dress for the entire 2 hour photo session before the ceremony. She brought me and my new husband food and drinks during cocktail hour, checked on us repeatedly during the reception, and offered to run back to the bridal room if anyone in the wedding party needed their personal belongings. The rest of the staff was very attentive to my guests, even escorting them to the reception room with umbrellas because of the downpour.
But I wouldn't recommend OYCC just because of the staff. The venue itself is a great place to have a wedding. There are 3 ceremony venue options--the gazebo, the patio, and an indoor ceremony room. It was important to me to have an outdoor wedding, and because Old York has the covered patio, it is possible to have an outdoor wedding even if it's raining (which it did on my wedding day!). My photographers were also able to get plenty of great photos despite the weather because there are plenty of covered awnings outside the venue, plus a variety of rooms with lots of windows/lighting inside. The reception ballroom is beautiful, and the food is fantastic. My guests loved the venue, and I did too! I'd highly recommend having your wedding here!

Our wedding would not have been what it was without them
When my husband and I first visited Old York two years prior to our wedding, we knew that we had to book our date because there wasn't anywhere else we wanted to get married. From the first time we met Melanie and Hank, we felt as if we had known them forever. They both have such a calming nature about them which eased our big day nerves and made us feel as if we were putting our big day into the hands of a trusted friend. I truly don't think our day could have been any more perfect and I know that it is because of the great care and attention to detail that Melanie and Hank put into our day. Stacy was assigned as our attendant and was always available and extremely helpful from the beginning of the day until the last minute. She carried my train, got me tissues, carried my flowers, arranged my train, got us drinks, arranged my train again, gave advice to my maids, bustled my dress, fixed my bustle when it ripped, wrapped us up a meal to go, packed up all of our decorations, I could go on and on. She was just fantastic. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and well attended to, leaving endless photo opportunities- seriously our photographer was thrilled! Our wedding was three weeks ago and I am still getting texts and comments about how delicious the food was. The service was seamless and the options were plentiful. I have a feeling that I will be having conversations about the food for years to come (get the mac and cheese bar, you won't regret it!) Since we booked two years ago Old York has updated the ballroom floors, chairs, added a beautiful lighting detail to the ceiling and updated the menu. They are always working to stay abreast on the latest wedding trends while preserving the elegant feel that Old York brings. Over the last three weeks I have been reliving our big day detail by detail and it truly was perfect all thanks to the wonderful staff at Old York. Everything went seamlessly and I wouldn't have changed a single thing. I hope that someone I know gets married there soon so that I can enjoy all that OYCC has to offer all over again!

There is simply no better place to have your wedding than the Old York! The grounds are beautiful, the food is amazing, and the service is perfection! Melanie took my wedding vision and made it happen all while keeping me calm when I got overwhelmed. My husband and I got married over a week ago and we still have guests reaching out to us talking about how beautiful our venue was and the service and the food were amazing. We are so happy we choose the Old York and highly recommend it!
This venue offers the below options which may impact pricing:
Take a ride to the country and gorgeous grounds at Old York Country. The tented deck overlooking the greens was wonderful for an early June event. The ceremony over the bridge was beautiful and secluded. The staff was very helpful and the couple had a perfect day!
Our very own Fernando had breathtaking photos taken at this venue. I'm not kidding.. They're in his office! A gorgeous venue, definitely a must see. Such a pleasure working with Melanie to coordinate our events with her. She treats all clients with professionalism and is very personable. It shows in the staff/service. We've had a relationship with Melanie for almost 10 years. We are excited to continue working with you for the many years to come!
The Old York Country Club is located in the quiet farm town of Chesterfield, NJ, and features beautiful golf course views and a rustic reception space. The front of the banquet room features brick and a historic fireplace. The management and service team is also top notch!
