About Waterloo Village

Waterloo Village is a historic park with a barn couples can use for their wedding in the Northern New Jersey area. This venue, embodying a vintage and rustic atmosphere, is in a restored 19th-century canal town on the Musconetcong River. It features historic homes and other vintage buildings such as an old working mill and a church that is still active today. Couples can find this venue roughly 30 minutes from the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area and nearly an hour from downtown Newark, New Jersey.

Facilities and Capacity
Couples can invite up to 250 guests to their wedding at Waterloo Village. Sitting within this quaint venue are historic homes, an active church, a working mill, an old general store and a blacksmith shop. These structures make a scenic backdrop for a couple’s big day. They can host an outdoor ceremony at the park’s stunning white gazebo. This elegant structure frames couples beautifully for their wedding day. Couples can also opt for an outdoor ceremony under the boughs of an old tree, framed by a wedding arch or arbor. This park also has two structural facilities couples can use for their wedding. The meeting house and the rustic pavilion both offer indoor locations where couples can host their wedding safe from inclement weather and the chill of night. Here, couples will find magnificent stone fireplaces, weather backdrops, and grand wooden columns.

Services Offered

The staff works to provide the very best in service on a couple’s wedding day, even inviting their four-legged family to this pet-friendly space.

    stunning venue, amazing food, wonderful staff!

    I havent even gotten married yet and I'm already raving about this venue. We didn't want to go with a traditional ballroom look, we wanted something more unique and personal. Waterloo checked off every box for us. It was rustic without being too country and can easily be dressed up to suit our look. There's a fire pit for smores, cornhole for cocktail hour and some of the most phenomenal food I've ever had from a caterer. I've been to several tastings at other venues and none could even hold a candle to waterloo. Beyond the sheer selection they offered, the quality was fantastic and there were so many unique options, not just your standard "beef, chicken or fish". Knowing the food is locally and seasonally sourced was the cherry on top. We knew within 5 minutes of being there that this was our spot. Maria is a gem and has been so sweet and helpful with the planning process and answering my 1000 questions. Tessa is my coordinator and she's been great as well. I absolutely cannot wait until october, I'm counting down the days!

    Best. Wedding. Ever.

    Waterloo Village was everything we we're looking for and more. When we started the process of looking for a venue we knew we wanted something rustic and we knew we wanted something with air conditioning. (we aren't that rustic) Initially, when we started looking we kept coming across different barns and other rentable spaces where we would have to bring everything in, tables, chairs, even dance floors in some cases. Then we stumbled upon Waterloo Village, we went to visit and they had every detail that we're looking for, everything was perfect, the tables, the chairs, little lighting details, giant fire places, a fire pit, a wood fired brick oven for pizzas, a sperate building for the cocktail hour and the gorgeous back drop of a the State park. It was the only venue we looked at and we signed two days later.
    We booked in October of '17 our date was 4-27-19 so we had plenty of time to plan. Waterloo has multiple open houses throughout the year so you can go up and get a feel for the space and ask questions, get measurements, or bring in your outside vendors to check out the space. We went up multiple times and really utilized these open houses to customize our day, plus we really liked going up there just to check out the park which has a canal and a little waterfall and great old buildings that were really great back drops for our pictures.
    We did our tasting in March of '18, we realized we got so swept up in the look of the venue that we never tried the food. Waterloo does their tastings in groups based on when your date is. It is set up like a mini wedding, you and other couples go to a cocktail hour and then to the main building for a dinner and dessert. THE FOOD IS AMAZING. We were totally blown away everything was so good. Also during the tasting there are outside vendors that are also invited, and it was great being able to talk with other couples to share ideas about planning.
    About 5 months before our date we were assigned our planner, Kasia. Kasia was great, when we first met we hit it off right a way, we started with finalizing our menu and creating a plan for day-of. Over the next few months is when the real nerves start to hit and whenever we needed her Kasia was there to calm us down and tell us we were doing great and on track with our day. As we got closer she also helped us organize our outside vendors (florist, photo, photo booth etc) and make sure everyone was on the same page and taking alot of the burden and worry off us.
    The day of was AMAZING. Absolutely perfect. Everything went seamlessly. Everyone raved about the food. All of our small details were perfectly in place. Kasia made sure we stayed on track all day, even found us ten mins to decompress after the ceremony and get ready to enjoy the night. We had people contacting us the week after the wedding and telling us they were still on a high from the day. We absolutely loved Waterloo Village. If you're looking for a Rustic type venue with really top notch food and a beautiful background, I don't think you will find one better than Waterloo in New Jersey.
