We had our wedding at the Palace this past November and although we had to cut our guest list basically in half, we had the most perfect day. During the planning process, the Palace was so accommodating and flexible. Our wedding planner Alex F and the director of catering Jose were the people we planned most of our wedding through. They were always readily available for answer questions and talk about the next steps in regards to our wedding. They always emailed or called us back super fast. This team is very dependable and understanding.
They will work with you to get anything you want or need for your wedding day. The Palace takes care of any concerns and lets you just enjoy your way as a bride and groom.
My mom, sister, bridesmaids, and in laws were obsessed with the bridal suite. It was perfect, clean, and spacious. That should be a selling point for you guys, I have been in 7 weddings prior to my own and nothing measured up to the Palace's bridal suite. My husband also was able to arrive at the venue early and get ready with his groomsmen which he really appreciated. Usually there are not any designated areas for the groom and friends to get ready at venues.
The food was outstanding. Our cocktails, cocktail hour, dinner, and dessert was all served because of COBID-19 restrictions but the feedback from our guests was that they all enjoyed being served so much better. The food was outstanding!! SOOOOO good; everyone was raving about the delicious entrees and the cookies they got to take home at the end of the night. The servers apparently took very good care of their tables as our guests told me how attentive everyone was.
The grounds are so well kept, we took the most amazing pictures during daylight hours with the flowers in the background and at the with the Palace lit up as the backdrop. There is so much space in the east ballroom, our guests were very well spread out and all felt comfortable attending our wedding.
Our maître d David ran the show completely the day of our wedding, we were so happy to have him by our side. He had so much patience and guided us every step of the way, from organizing all our pictures, making sure our champagne glasses were put out for our toast and packed back up, to making sure the day ran smoothly for the bridal party, coordinating the cake cutting, and making sure the ceremony was flawless. I appreciated that he took control and ran the ceremony rehearsal for us, that was a big help!!
The bride and groom have bridal attendants assigned to them for the day, I had Ashley and Breanna who were so attentive and helped us and our family out through out the day. Ashley had to sew one of the groomen's pants the ripped. She greeted us with cocktails the second we walked down the aisle after our wedding ceremony which really stuck out in my our mind as a great detail.
I cannot say thank you enough to everyone. Once the world gets back to better times, have your wedding here!! You, your family, friends, and vendors will have an amazing time and the most perfect wedding day. There isn't enough good things to say about our experience here.Sent on 11/19/2020

Breathtaking venue and incredible staff
From the moment we walked into The Palace and met with Kara back in 2018, we knew this was the place we wanted to get married at! The revenue is absolutely gorgeous and the staff is honestly the best I have ever experienced.
Due to Covid, our June 2020 wedding was pushed to July 2021. We were devastated but Alex and Antonia eased our nerves as we prepared for another year of our engagement. From start to finish The Palace staff was phenomenal to work with. I work in events, so I constantly reached out to Antonia with questions regarding our floor plan, covid restrictions etc. and she always got back to me instantly and was such a pleasure to work with.
Daniel, the catering manager was so nice at our tasting in April, he came up to our table and explained the current restrictions and the hope that they would be lifted by our July wedding.
The days leading up to our wedding Antonia and Josh made our wedding perfect. We met with Josh to go over all of our details and when we walked into The Palace everything looked perfect. Anytime we were looking for Josh, before we could even say where is Josh he was right there making sure we were happy and making sure our parents and all our guests were having a great time. Days after the wedding our guests are still telling us how beautiful the venue was, how impressed they were with the food menu (guests were loving the raw bar and hibachi station and of course the Viennese display), and how great the staff was onsite. I can’t thank Antonia, Daniel, Josh and all of the staff at The Palace for giving us the wedding of our dreams.Sent on 07/21/2021

A no-brainer choice for a dream wedding
Everyone at the Palace helped make our wedding day even more dreamy than we could have ever imagined. The staff all went above & beyond to make it the best day ever (to say the least)! Alexandra was our wonderful wedding planner through the Palace, Daniel was our Banquet Manager, David was our Maitre D', and Anahi was our Bridal Attendant. They were all so professional and wonderful; and made the expected wedding day bumps flow seamlessly and go without a hitch. They are so good at what they do. Leave it to the team at the Palace to make your wedding day the best day/celebration ever!Sent on 07/14/2021
The Big Day, your big day… Unique opportunity to have your dream wedding at The Palace at Somerset Park. The Palace has earned acclaim on several “best of” lists, including The Knot, Wedding Wire, Manhattan Bride and NJ Bride Magazine. You deserve an awe inspiring setting to make memories that last a lifetime. You have a unique opportunity to take advantage of special pricing for short term dates between now and June 2021
The Palace at Somerset Park was one of our most favorite venues to work at. The staff is so efficient there and the maitre'd, Richard, and bridal assistant, Latonya, worked together flawlessly and were so easy to work with ourselves. They helped us flow through portraits all while keeping the bride and groom from seeing each other before the ceremony. The Palace is beautiful and the food is amazing. Can we work here every weekend? ;)
Excellent venue. Great staff and food.
Wonderful venue to work at! Amazing staff, professional and simply one of a kind!
