Hidden Gem in New Jersey
I cannot say enough amazing things about this venue and the staff that runs it. Jim and Viviana really went above and beyond to make our wedding reception everything we could have dreamed. Everything flowed so easily and planning our wedding was fun and surprisingly stress free. This venue, which included the most delicious menue choices, accommodating staff, chefs and bartenders, is so unbelievably affordable and beautiful. It was honestly love at first sight.Sent on 02/26/2020
In the daylight, the hardwood floors, open space, and floor to ceiling windows were just perfect. It was an empty canvas where we knew we could bring our Intimate dream wedding to life.
The staff was there for us every step of the way. I would 100% recommend the Garden Vista Ballroom for the wedding of your dreams. We are so grateful we found this venue!

Where do I begin.. JIM IS THE BEST!! Our wedding was on 6-9-18 and we booked this amazing place about a year and a half ago! Jim was very helpful and accommodating with our requests. We had about 130 people in our wedding.. and they were all super comfortable! The food was amazing! People were in love with the delicious pernil and penne in vodka sauce.. everything was super yummy! Everybody in the GVB were super helpful... from the super friendly bartender and valet guys.. to the servers and last but not least.. Jim! He is super responsive, organized and very calmed.. specially in a day that could be stressful. Overall we were very happy with our experience and would definitely recommend GVB!!Sent on 06/23/2018
