RENOVATIONS ANNOUNCED FOR 2025 & 2026!

We’re all about improving your wedding experience without getting in the way of your big plans. We’ve meticulously planned each renovation phase to ensure The Palace at Somerset Park remains your go-to venue for unforgettable moments, with a few exciting upgrades along the way! Please visit our website for more details.

The Palace at Somerset Park located in Somerset, New Jersey is the perfect distance from Manhattan, Philadelphia and international airports. There are 40 acres of manicured estate surrounded picturesque gardens with continuous tree lines around the entire estate. Giving the couples the ultimate canvas for creating their own personal touches from the custom lighting to linen colors. With 25 foot ceilings, custom chandeliers and a grand staircase for dramatic entrances the Palace is the place to be.

As guests enter through magnificent private entrances with valet, they will be greeted by tuxedoed servers with sparkling water and champagne into the foyer area. Guests will enjoy a cocktail hour with a top shelf open bar complete with fine crafted cocktails, butlered hors d’oeuvres, multiple live stations and French doors leading to a 5,000 square foot outdoor terrace with firepits and seating all evening.

Ceremonies on site can take place in multiple locations including outside for a “ceremony in the sky” overlooking trees and gardens. With 1,100 square feet of space to get ready or touch up in, the wedding suite will be a perfect place for a bridal party to gather. Food and cocktails are provided with assistance from a top notch bridal attendant while the Maitre’d runs the event.

The Palace is staffed with some of the finest chefs, creating delicious cuisine for each event that they host. Head Chef Justin di Bianca, member of Chaine des Rotisseurs, is dedicated and passionate about the work he does. When creating packages, he keeps in mind different cultures to highlight every individual and make the wedding day their own.

100% recommend!

10/10
We had roger and Marcia as our maitre d's and they were both great and made sure everything went as planned. My bridal attendant also made sure I was taken care of all day. Food was amazing. Would 100% recommend them to all future brides. Great price and only one package option so it makes things far less complicated. Alex was our event coordinator leading up to the day and I cannot say enough amazing things. The sheer number of emails I sent her and she graciously answered them all.

Best day ever! Best wedding venue ever! 7/21/24 west ballroom

There are no words for how amazing The Palace at Somerset Park is. From the moment we toured the venue, we knew this would be the place that we would get married. The West Ballroom is absolutely stunning! We had our ceremony inside the ballroom space as well and it was absolutely gorgeous!!!!! We had a smaller wedding so it was perfect that their min. on a Sunday was 125 ( many other venues were at least 150+). Our day exceeded our expectations. Our guests COULD NOT STOP raving about how amazing the food was and how full they were the whole entire night. Also, our signature drinks were strong ( not watered down like we have experienced at other venues). The guests kept saying how classy and elegant everything looked. I was very nervous about making sure I did not see my groom before our first look. I felt so comfortable that my bridal attendant and Maitre D were in contact with another on their speaker headset system. The staff at The Palace are truly one of a kind. The whole day they made sure we were taken care of from food and staying hydrated. Our guests loved that they could go outside and eat for cocktail hour on the patio area, and then eat their desserts around a fire pit. Even though, there was another wedding going on, we had no idea and felt like we were the only wedding there because of how they stagger arrival and departure times, and are in contact with each other.

The bridal suite is INCREDIBLEEEEEE. It is huge and there are 3 plush salon chairs for hair and makeup. We loved that there was a couch, table, and chairs in the makeup area so we could all chat with one another while others were getting their hair and makeup done. This let the bigger room stay neater come time for pictures. There is a place for you to hang your dresses in another room too. Additionally, having 3 bathrooms was so nice. One of them even has a shower!!!!

From our initial tour with Jose, planning appointments with Ella, and the day of with Valeria (morning shift), the afternoon/night with Miriam, and our Maitre D , David, the day went off without any glitches. Jose was extremely knowledgable when we went for a tour. I left the tour wanting to book right then and there (we went back 4 days later and booked). Ella was a wonderful person to plan with, she answered every single question ( which I had a million of), she was very thorough, and just overall so sweet and calm, not to mention she was insanely prompt in her replies.

Valeria was the morning bridal attendant. She was so sweet and helped me get all my things into the suite. She immediately started steaming everyone's dress and went right to work. She kept cleaning up after ourselves and asked if we wanted anything to drink or to make anyone including the hair and makeup artists coffee. She was a real sweetheart.

Miriam was awesome too! She made sure I was drinking enough water, holding my dress, cleaning my dress off after pictures in the garden, and being with me every step fo the way. She was a calm presence. She made sure all of the girls were taken care of. She was terrific and absolutely so sweet.

David, our Maitre D... was absolutely incredible... from the moment we met him at our final planning meeting ( 4 days before our wedding), I felt like I could breath. There are no words for how much he calmed for my wedding. Prior to meeting, I was getting nervous at making sure the day was going to run smoothly. Once we met, I felt a weight lifted off my shoulders. He went over every single detail of the day from getting ready to leaving. He made suggestions and tweaks to our wedding timeline that made the day go seamlessly. He made sure my other vendors knew the timeline and together they worked effortlessly. He was extremely prompt which was awesome because I am type A. He was truly a gem to work with. He is extremely warm and caring, too! I

Thank you for an incredible experience and the best wedding day ever!

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? ;)
