    Beautiful Location

    Brooklake is an amazing location! Our contact there Peter is a great human being who helped us with the planning from the very beginning all the way to the last second of us being there. His team was professional and very accommodating. The view is beautiful and serene. I would recommend this location to everyone.

    My daughter's amazing wedding

    Not only is Brooklake Country Club beautiful, the staff was incredible. From start to finish they were friendly, attentive and extremely helpful. The food was amazing and never ending. This was beyond what we expected and i highly recommend having a wedding here.

    An unforgettable evening

    We pulled it off... a wedding in the midst of everything that is going on this year. Brooklake was with us every step of the way and was incredibly accommodating. Peter is a class act, and he takes tremendous pride in the events they host. The food at Brooklake is exceptional.

    Don’t hesitate to consider an outdoor wedding- it takes a little extra work, but it can be beautiful- maybe even more beautiful- than your original idea.

    The Best and Worth it!

    First of all, you'd love Peter! He is wonderful and amazing! His team are also very helpful and great! Brooklake Country Club did not disappoint! Since my wedding is on December, the place is decorated for Christmas and it looked so beautiful! Edith, who helped me the whole day is awesome too! She made sure I am taken care of and that I eat (as a bride you forget to eat at the moment but she made sure to ask me about it). She helped me bustle my long dress which kept on falling and fixed it. She's so nice!!!! The reception is great, food is awesome, the team are organized and nice. Overall, it was the best wedding I could have! This is a place where people and Peter really give it their best and they work by heart. Thank you so much for making my special day a momentous day of my life. I would never forget about it. Consider this place a great value for your wedding. You will not regret it! -Mercy-

    Best Decision We Ever Made!

    I don't have enough words for what Brooklake Country Club is. Peter, Adriana, Maury, Carol, and the entire staff is hands down the best I have ever encountered. My husband and I got married there this past weekend for our big fat Indian wedding, and Peter took care of everything from day one. He knew more about Indian weddings than we did! My husband and I had narrowed it down to two venues, and we immediately went with Brooklake because of PETER. He is so kind, so attentive, and so loving! He makes you feel like family and genuinely cares about making your wedding perfect. We had an amazing martini bar and Viennese dessert that people are still calling us about! Peter and Maury took care of everything to make sure it all ran smoothly. Carol always emailed be back immediately answering any questions. My bridal attendant, Adriana was just the MVP of my wedding, making sure I always had a drink in hand, refreshing my lip gloss, putting hot towels on my hands and feet when I got cold. She anticipated my needs before I even verbalized them. Maury, our Maitre D, really knew his stuff! He had everything running so efficiently and always had a smile on his face. Everyone calmed us down any time an issue came up and told us it was handled. The entire staff goes above and beyond for everyone at your wedding. Adriana made me plates several times and tried so hard to get me to eat anything, even carrying my appetizer plate as I mingled so I could just turn and take a bite! She went as far as packing so many trays of food and desserts because she knew I did not get to eat anything! Thank you to everyone at Brooklake for making our day perfect. We will never EVER forget any of you!

    Couldn't have been better

    Brooklake was absolutely perfect! When I was looking for a venue the person I spoke with was a huge decision maker and Peter was the reason I booked. He made everything easy and carefree. He was quick to respond, flexible and answered all of my questions. I didn't think all of the staff could be that amazing until my wedding day. About halfway through the cocktail hour I had an entire glass of red wine spilt on me. Edith (my bridal attendant) rushed me downstairs before I even had a minute to process what was happening and started to try everything to get the stain out. She scrubbed and scrubbed and helped change the bustle to ensure it was virtually unseen for the rest of the night. While in the room a bunch of staff members came down to see if I needed anything even the chef! They were so amazing and even in that moment I felt so calm.

    I would highly recommend Brooklake to anyone. My guests cannot stop raving about the food and everyone was so happy! It was truly the wedding of my dreams.

    Best Day Ever

    My husband and I got married at Brooklake earlier this month (September 2019) and everything was absolutely perfect. The venue itself and grounds are stunning, making for the perfect outdoor ceremony. Peter (Director of Catering) and his staff are kind, professional and accommodating. From the moment we met Peter we instantly felt comfortable with him. He was very responsive and flexible throughout the whole planning process, paying close attention to our every want and need for our special day. The entire day of staff including Edith (Bridal Attendant), Bea (Parent's Attendant) and Maury (Maitre'd) were incredibly attentive, and we are so grateful for all of their efforts to make sure our day went seamlessly. Our guests are still raving about how wonderful the food was, and how beautiful the venue was. It truly made for gorgeous pictures! We would highly recommend BCC as a wedding venue -- they will not disappoint!!

    Special Wedding Experience

    Great experience with Peter, Carol and the entire BCC staff! From start to finish we felt comfortable and excited about our wedding reception at Brooklake CC. Peter and the staff know how to accommodate and provide a special wedding experience, for us and our guests. The food is outstanding and service is above par! The indoor/ outdoor space is perfect for photos and cocktail hour, do not hesitate in booking BCC!!

    Amazing venue and team!

    Finding a venue was a bit of a stressful process, but when we met with Peter and saw Brooklake for the first time, we knew that we had found the spot for our wedding. The venue and outdoor surroundings were just beautiful, and this was even before they started on the renovations, which turned out amazing! We appreciated that even the drive to the venue was along lovely quiet suburban roads. Peter was just wonderful to work with – he’s warm, honest, and made us feel at ease throughout the whole process. We were struggling to find a way to accommodate the food preferences for our wedding, as we wanted to serve an Indian vegetarian-friendly dinner to half the guests and a plated dinner to the other half. Peter was very flexible and open to having the dinner partially catered by an outside vendor – this was the only venue that was willing to work with us in this way! We received so many compliments from our guests on the venue and food, and the entire Brooklake team was so professional and organized the day of. We had the perfect day and cannot recommend Brooklake enough for making it all possible.

    Beyond amazing wedding venue

    Peter was amazing to work with. His attention to detail made our night wonderful. He was responsive, flexible, and always willing to go above and beyond for us. Our guests were so impressed by the beautiful Brooklake grounds and it made for great pictures. We loved that we were able to have half our cocktail hour inside and half outside. It gave more space for guests to mingle. We were lucky we had a great July night. The matre'd and bridal attendant were awesome - and always made sure everything was going as planned, that we were eating and that we had a drink in hand to enjoy the night, as well. Peter was even at our event and checked in to make sure everything was going how we liked and to see if we needed any changes. You often do not see the person who you spent time planning your wedding with from the venue at the event - this was important! Brooklake blew us away and we will forever have such such a wonderful memory of our wedding due to their attention to detail. Thank you again Peter & the Brooklake Staff!

    Brooklake CC and Peter Were More Than Amazing

    My wife and I had a hard time finding a venue for a wedding that we wanted in July. We thought we had found the one, but things did not work out and we had to start the search all over again. A friend recommended Brooklake CC and we fell in love at first sight and we knew this was the venue for us. I can't say enough about how well Peter treated us from our first interaction to our wedding day. He was there to answer any question we had. He worked with us to make the best wedding possible on our budget. The staff was amazing on our wedding day as well. They were there to help make our family as comfortable as possible throughout the day. We received so many compliments from guest about how great the food, service, and entire venue was. Book the Brooklake for your events. You will not regret it.

    Every Bride's DREAM!

    Our wedding was at Brooklake Country Club just a few weeks ago (June 2019) and was everything a bride (& groom) could dream of. Words can’t express our gratitude to Peter Mitsaelides, director of catering and the entire staff at BCC. From the minute we met Peter, we felt like family. Everyone went above and beyond to ensure that our day went smoothly. Edith, the bridal attendant, was with us from early morning preparations, to assisting during photographs and throughout the evening. Bea, our parents personal attendant, took care of their every need during the reception. Mory was more than attentive and surpassed our expectations. The staff granted my wish for an outdoor ceremony. They tracked the weather while a storm passed thru and waited up until the very last minute to make the decision. Minutes leading up to the ceremony, staff was outside drying off chairs for all our guests! The venue and view overlooking the golf course are absolutely gorgeous, which made for amazing pictures. Our guests are still raving about the food and service provided Executive Chef D’Onofrio! We would recommend BCC to any future bride and groom! We can not thank the BCC staff enough for making our day unforgettable!

    Best Day of Our Lives!

    We had our June wedding at Brooklake Country Club and could have not been more pleased with how seamless the day turned out from start to finish. Peter is an absolute master of his craft and his team ensured that our entire bridal party and all of our guests were taken care of from morning preparations until clean up. The perfect combination of a newly renovated venue and a gorgeously landscaped outdoor setting gave our guests and ourselves a picture perfect day. The food was plentiful and delicious, the staff was attentive and friendly, and our day was perfect in every way thanks to the efforts put forward by Peter and his team at Brooklake. I HIGHLY recommend this venue for any special event that you are planning to be effortless and memorable, as it won't disappoint! Thanks again!

    Highly recommend!

    We had our wedding at Brooklake a few weeks ago. From the first time we visited and met Peter (who is truly a gem), we felt confident that we, and our guests, were in good hands. It's a beautiful venue, but beyond that, the impeccable service really elevates it to something special. No detail is left unattended. We used an outside caterer, as we were having a traditional Indian wedding, but did get a few cocktail hour and dessert items through Brooklake, and those were delicious. Edith, our attendant, was a superhero and a calming presence for me. Many guests have raved to us in the weeks since about our wedding, and it truly was thanks to the efforts of Peter, Edith, Bea (our parents' attendant), Maury (the maitre'd), and the rest of the staff at Brooklake that we had such a memorable and wonderful day.

    The Wedding of Our Dreams

    Brooklake Country Club was the first venue we visited. We were overwhelmed from the second we walked in the door, not just by the decor, but by the people! Everyone, at every stage of the wedding process, was friendly, accommodating and easy to work with. We knew from the very beginning that everyone at Brooklake would work their hardest to give us the wedding of our dreams.
    That is exactly what they did.
    Our bridal attendant, Edith, was a superhero! She stayed with us every second. From the early morning preparations through the end of the night, Edith made sure that we had anything we could want.
    Bea, our parents' attendant, was beyond accommodating and took care of both sets of parents throughout the entire reception.
    Peter Mitsaelides, the director of catering, took care of every detail of the night with precision. Our guests could not say enough about how wonderful every part of the reception was- from the decor, to the food, to the staff---everything was phenomenal!

    Exceptional Venue All Around

    From the planning process all the way through to our wedding night, Peter and his staff at Brooklake were nothing short of exceptional. The venue is top notch – from outdoor space, beautiful scenery for photos, to wonderful acoustics…was everything we could have hoped for. The cocktail hour offered a bunch of unique and delicious stations, and the menu for the actual wedding was way more extensive than the usual steak or fish you see at weddings. I can’t recommend Brooklake enough, and thanks again Peter and staff for hosting an evening we’ll never forget.

    I highly recommend Brooklake Country Club for any bride looking for a beautiful indoor and outdoor wedding venue. The venue is breathtaking and is so beautiful. They work on every detail to make every room perfect. Peter was such a pleasure to work with. He was always available to answer my questions and often answered them before I could even ask. We asked for a few special elements and they covered everyone. The entire staff the night of my wedding were absolutely amazing. My bridal attendant Edith was by my side all night. She covered all of my needs as well as the needs of my girls. The other staff made sure my parents every need was clearly addressed down to bringing my dad a plate of shrimp just for him. Many of our guest commented on how great the staff was.

    I honestly don't know where to start. Peter is like an actual dream come true. His professionalism and attention to detail had me sold after one tour. I went there thinking there was no way I was having my wedding there and walked out telling my mom "this is the place." From day one, Peter was very easily reachable, open to all my changes, kind, giving, helpful, everything! Every time he saw me, it was like I was family to him. I chose to not only have my wedding at Brooklake, but my bridal shower as well! Come the day of the wedding, Peter, Edith, the Maitre d', and the whole staff were spectacular. They took care of literally everything and made me and my whole family feel so special and tended to. I honestly cannot imagine having had my wedding anywhere else. Edith was by my side all day long with water, my lip gloss, holding my bouquet and veil, everything. Shew as AMAZING! Thank you so much, from my entire family!!

    A dream come true!

    I cannot stress enough how spectacular our experience with Brooklake Country Club was. Even in the midst of a 98-degree day, our outdoor ceremony and everything that followed was absolutely perfect. The venue is admittedly not cheap, but we got more than enough bang for our buck. The scenic backdrop was wonderful for pictures, the gazebo and patio area comfortably fit all of our guests who opted to sit outside for the ceremony, and people still rave to me about how much they enjoyed the food. The reception hall was spacious and beautifully decorated, the bars were fully stocked and well operated, and every detail was in perfect order from the moment you walked in the front door. The catering director, Peter, was a dream to work with - he promised us the world and, to my surprise, he completely delivered. We had personalized decorations, signature cocktails, special requests for the bar to stock, specific seating arrangements, custom music for the ceremony, a need for gluten-free food options, special requests for lighting, and much more, and not once did we have to worry that things wouldn't be exactly to our liking. Peter was always available for spur of the moment questions and concerns, and his calm demeanor and sense of humor was reassuring during the stressful wedding planning process. I also want to add a special thank you to the bridal attendant Edith, who made sure the bride stayed cool, calm, and collected all throughout the hot and hectic day. Everyone at Brooklake was a consummate professional - our wedding went off without a hitch, and they deserve a ton of credit for that. Highly recommend!

    We had my daughter's wedding there 6/15/18. From start to finish, Peter and his team made it a truly memorable and enjoyable day. Food, drink, and service were top notch! Every need was anticipated and met and made it a very stress free day!! You cannot go wrong in choosing this beautiful venue

    The greatest wedding venue spot my husband and I could have ever dreamed of. From day 1, Peter was always fully attentive, no matter how silly the question. Carol, his assistant, was also a fabulous resource when I had any questions. If you are looking for a classy & picturesque venue, look no further. Brooklake is BEAUTIFUL and we had the greatest wedding ever!
