  • We went for a visit and right away they poured us a glass of wine or beer. The grounds are beautiful, everything was explained thoroughly, and the presentation was exquisite. We booked right on the spot. After we booked they immediately got in touch with us and communication has been open ever since. I look forward to working with them

  • My fiancé and I looked at about 10 places when we decided to visit Bear Brook. As soon as we walked onto the property we knew we loved the venue. Then meeting all of the staff, seeing the bridal and groomsmen suites, and the gorgeous rustic romantic decor sold us. Our wedding coordinator made everything idiot-proof for us: reminding us about payments, timelines for vendors, etc. We recently had our wedding there and people have not stopped complimenting us about their experience at Bear Brook. They loved the food, the staff, and the overall ambiance of the place. We are so thrilled with how our wedding turned out, thanks to Bear Brook!

    Jaimie & Nick- Congratulations again!! Thank you so much for taking the time out to share your experience with us! We are so glad we were able to bring your wedding vision to life! The lavender candles as a favor was an adorable touch and the McDonald's at the end of the night was such a hit! Please come back and visit us as a guest soon! Best wishes :)

  • I booked Bear Brook Valley for my upcoming wedding. So far the experience has been perfect and with such professionalism. Every so often someone reaches out to see how we are doing and to give us some helpful tips. The place itself is amazing. Can’t wait to marry my best friend there!!!

  • Wow where to even begin about how AMAZING Bear Brook Valley was for our wedding on 8/17/19! Katrina Boyle, our wedding coordinator, was absolutely INCREDIBLE during the entire planning process. From her helpful checklists and suggestions, to her on the spot magic she pulled, she made sure every detail was what we wanted and made sure our wedding was exactly what we dreamed of. Franklin and the bridal attendants were also fantastic the day of as they were SO attentive, helpful, and readily available to help with any request throughout the day. Our food was spectacular, the cocktail hour was raved about, and the end of the night food stand on the way out was a huge hit. I could rave about the beauty of Bear Brook all day, but the people made it that much better and easier to work with. I couldn’t imagine having my wedding anywhere else and I’m SO greatful for Katrina’s patience, flexibility and her eagerness to accommodate our every request. I would highly recommend Bear Brook Val... Read more

  • I don't know where to start - everything about BBV is perfection. I got married here a few weeks ago in what would be BBV's first "big fat Indian wedding". We had picked Bear Brook Valley a year ago knowing that they hadn't necessarily done a wedding like ours, but regardless selecting them was the easiest decision to make. Katrina was incredibly warm, welcoming, attentive, and so excited - we knew that this was going to be the place for us. The chefs worked with us to create a nearly custom menu that helped us accommodate all of our guests many different dietary restrictions and they executed everything so well - every single guest is still raving about it. We were honestly able to enjoy our entire day at Bear Brook Valley, because the staff made it so easy for us to relax and not worry about any details. Frankly, we're already discussing getting married again so we can be back at BBV ;)! Don't overthink and go with BBV, you will not regret it!

  • When I first stepped foot in Bear Brook Valley, we knew we wanted to get married here based on how beautiful it was. After we booked, Katrina communicated with us about every detail and made us feel at ease throughout the wedding planning process. The venue is gorgeous, with so much natural beauty. We didn't need to worry about a thing the day of because the service was impeccable from arrival in the morning to the minute we left at night. The whole staff was so attentive all day and night and made the day perfect. The food was amazing, and the guests are still complimenting how great the venue was. I highly recommend Bear Brook for your wedding day.

  • My now husband and I knew from the moment we walked into Bear Brook Valley that it was going to be "the one". I already had a feeling based on how excited I was from pictures alone, and how spot on everything was in person. (The drive in was also gorgeous!) We live in NYC and often travel upstate for long weekends, day hikes, etc., so our first thought was to look for a venue in the Hudson Valley. The vibe we wanted for would include both indoor and outdoor space, a modern take on the farmhouse/barn house style, hold only one wedding per day and be surrounded by trees and/or mountains. Bear Brook Valley checked every single box and then some! It is nestled in the greenery of northwestern New Jersey, so the lushness and connection to nature was perfect. I could go on forever about how much we, and all of our guests, LOVED our venue, but instead I'll highlight key areas we thought were important and stood out from all the other venues we considered.

  • I don't know how I could possibly put into words the overwhelming sense of love and happiness I feel when I think about Bear Brook Valley. I wish I could rate 5,000 stars instead of just 5. A simple "5 star review" just doesn't do it justice. My husband and I got married 5 days ago, and I have been brought to tears many times over the last few days when thinking about how PERFECT our day was. First, its the most STUNNING venue I've ever seen. Its so unique, yet classy and sophisticated, too. The ballroom is so spacious, but not so spread out that you feel like you're in a different country than half of your guests. The food was delicious, multiple people contacted us after the wedding to tell us it was the best food they've ever had at an event. The staff... I truly don't have words to describe what wonderful people they are! They went above and beyond for not only my husband and I, but our parents and bridal party throughout the entire day. We chose to spend our whole day at the v... Read more

  • I don’t even know where to start. This is the best place ever!!! When I got engaged, I knew I wanted a rustic looking venue that offered the same food amenities of a banquet hall. I didn’t want a venue with rug, tablecloths, or chairs with seating covers. In north jersey that is hard to find. I first saw their sister venue Rock Island lake Club which is beautiful too!! I knew it was a little small for our headcount and I knew I had to see Bear Brook valley. When I walked into Bear Brook Valley for the first time, I started to cry. I knew it was it! There was no rug, no tablecloths, no chairs with seat covers. It had these beautiful farm tables. The whole venue screamed rustic. Also, my husband is big into video games. When I saw the groom’s lounge with all the video games that still screamed rustic I was sold! As a side note, I highly recommend keeping the groom’s lounge open during cocktail hour. It added something different to the wedding. After booking the venue, I worked w... Read more

    Lisa and Louis, CONGRATULATIONS. Thank you so much for taking the time out to write such kind words. You two were amazing to work with and we are so glad that you enjoyed the planning process and the day of (of course!). You two were the first outdoor ceremony for 2019 and it looked awesome!

  • Just had our wedding at Bear Brook on November 1st 2019 and we could not be happier about how everything went! The experienced staff was with us every step of the way in planning not only for the Bear Brook related decisions but also for when we should have our vendors booked, where we could get our dresses and suits, and fun ideas to have throughout the day. They were flexible with us when we changed our minds and helped mold our thoughts into fully formed ideas. The day of, the staff was more attentive than I have seen at any other venue. They were incredibly organized and would consistently check up on us to make sure not only my husband and I, but our entire bridal party, was happy with everything. The day could not have run smoother, and they thought of things that we had never expected, like putting out hot apple cider when it got chilly for our outdoor ceremony. The property was a gorgeous place to take pictures and we have not stopped receiving compliments on the food, beer sel... Read more

  • Where do I even begin with this incredible venue! When I was looking for wedding venues, I had an idea in my head of what I envisioned as my perfect wedding venue - rustic, yet elegant, and somewhere that offered different aspects that you normally don't see as opposed to your typical wedding venue. I have been in and attended a lot of weddings in New Jersey, and I can honestly say that Bear Brook Valley is one of a kind. From the first day I found Bear Brook Valley online, I knew without even visiting the venue that this is where my husband and I would be getting married. From the first conversation I had with Adriana, I felt a sense of welcoming and professionalism that I hadn't felt with any of the other venues I had spoken with already. The minute I walked into the venue with my parents (my husband couldn't come with us that day because of work) I knew I had found the perfect place for us to get married, and my parents felt the same exact way. I decided to hold a date for our ... Read more

    Emma and Matt, thank you so much for letting the Bear Brook Valley team be a part of your special day! You two have such wonderful goofy and fun personalities, that we think we had just as much fun as you guys did! Please come back soon and party with us some more! We'll even put out some gluten free selections for you, Matt. Congratulations again!
