    Rustic Elegance, Perfect!

    This venue is absolutely stunning! It was everything and more that we were looking for. I had spent countless hours looking for something like this in New Jersey but it either couldn't hold our guest count or had huge up front fee that didn't include anything.
    PCK fit the bill, it was rustic, elegant, and the park surrounding it was exquisite. It allowed us to get some of the most amazing photos for our big day. The tent behind the house was perfect, it had that perfect ambiance to it. There's no other way to describe the whole venue other than perfect.
