  • My parents already wrote a great review (see review from "Louis & Denise") which I think covered all of the main points. From the bride's perspective, Pleasantdale Chateau was absolutely PERFECT. I had the wedding of my dreams and it was all thanks to the friendly and professional staff at Pleasantdale (especially Laura!). The mansion and grounds are stunning, the service is impeccable, the food was creative and delicious. If you are considering Pleasantdale Chateau, pick up the phone right now and book it. You won't be sorry!

  • We celebrated our daughter Lauren’s wedding at the Pleasantdale Chateau on August 29, 2015. From the first day we visited the venue and saw the magnificent mansion and gorgeous grounds, we knew that was where we wanted to have Lauren and John’s wedding and we were so excited about planning their wedding there. We had very high expectations about how the wedding would turn out. Well, the Pleasantdale Chateau far exceeded our expectations in every way possible and we had the most wonderful and memorable experience you could ever imagine. On our first visit we met Laura Madden who is the Senior Catering Sales Manager. She spent time describing the wedding experience there, giving us a detailed tour of the property, and reviewing other pertinent information such as date availability and financial terms. Laura was organized, articulate and very friendly and warm – she was the consummate professional. She was the person who was there every step of the way during the time we plan... Read more

  • We got married at Pleasantdale on August 8. During our planning period Andrew was replaced by Fred Fogg as the event/catering director. Fred offered us what we had already discuss with Andrew but also presented some of his ideas and new visions. We trusted him with everything he recommended and he over delivered. Meeting with Fred and Santiago to discuss some of the changes/upgrades we could add to the event was a little nerve wracking, but we gave them the ball and let them run with it. I am so happy and grateful we trusted Fred with his new ideas and visions for the PC. His ideas are novel, fun, and memorable. Fred listens to your ideas and looks for ways to make them happen as opposed to finding reasons why they can't. You could have your wedding ther and attend another and it could feel like two spectacular, albeit, different events. However some things that will remain consistent are the food being EXCELLENT and WAY above "wedding food par" they honestly need their own category i... Read more

  • Fred, Santiago, Dawn & their entire team were absolutely amazing! The day of the wedding felt completely flawless thanks to everyone at Pleasantdale Chateau. Staff were helpful, things were setup on time, correctly & perfectly, and the food was over the top delicious. The personal assistant to the bride and groom was on point! Whatever we needed, she was there and got it done. Whether it was fixing the mother of the groom’s dress moments before the ceremony started or getting shots of Patron for us before we were announced at reception, she got it done. Our wedding wouldn’t have been the same without her. Thank you, thank you, thank you! For making our dream wedding become a reality. It was more than we could have ever imagined! -Juan & Trang Rios

  • My wedding was so amazing! I worked with Laura and Santiago and the went above and beyond for my wedding. All of my guests said it was the best wedding that they have ever been to. I really have no complaints! I might be biased but it's definitely the best place in NJ to get married!

  • To say our wedding was a dream come true at the Pleasantdale Chateau is an understatement. From the minute you enter that gorgeous driveway, it's as if you leave New Jersey, and enter into a storybook. Not only is the venue exceptionally gorgeous, the overnight accommodations are an added bonus with such beautiful rooms that allowed us and our guests to really relax, and savor every minute of the beautiful venue. The staff is phenomenal as well! When we met our wedding coordinator Laura, we knew that this was going to be the perfect location for our wedding. She went above, and beyond for us to ensure that our wedding was perfect, and every wish and desire was taken care of. The day was so well coordinated that both my groom and I didn't even have to think twice about anything being done or taken care of. Our bridal attendants were also exceptional, and were with us every step of the way. The food was extraordinary, and countless of our guests raved that it was the absolute best we... Read more

  • All of the excellent reviews are true, Pleasantdale Château was able to deliver the most magical day of our lives! From the moment we got there everything was perfect. Both my groom and I were greeted by our bridal attendants, whom we had the entire day. Veronica, my attendant, was amazing. She was there for absolutely everything I needed throughout the course of the day. All of our requests were carried out in the utmost professional manner. Santiago, our maître d', made the day stress free and perfect. It looked like it was going to downpour right before our ceremony - When he asked me what I wanted to do, I told him that I wanted to have it outside, and that's all I had to say. He made it happen. We had the most beautiful ceremony outside with just a few raindrops. He is the best! I can't even begin to describe how perfect the rest of the day was because not one detail was overlooked. I could not have asked for a better day. From the staff, to meeting the new director, Fred Fogg, ... Read more

  • The Pleasantdale Chateau was an amazing venue to have our wedding in May. Between the service, grounds, and food, everyone said it was the best wedding they had ever been to. We added the after hours option to our night so if people were hungry after dancing we were served all the essentials (pigs in a blanket, disco fries, pizza bagels, wings, etc.), along with a continuation of the open bar. I was hesitant and a little upset when I found out about their no tasting policy but ALL of the food including our wedding cake was out of this world. My husband and I keep saying we hope we are invited to a wedding their so we can experience it all over again. The staff was incredible and they were willing to do anything and everything to make the day amazing. Most notably, Santiago was always quick to respond during the planning process. On our wedding day, he was there to meet us on our arrival and took care of everything until the night was over. He and everyone else at the Pleasantdale th... Read more

  • This was the absolutely best wedding of all time. From the moment I stepped into the Chateau, I felt like a princess. This was the best day of my life and that is fully due to the Chateau. The food was incredible, and the service was perfect! The entire team was amazing, and our wedding planner Laura made the day the most perfect one that you can ever imagine. Thank you!

  • We cannot express how extremely happy and overjoyed we are that we chose to have our daughter Lauras wedding to Jeremy at the Pleasantdale Chateau this past Sunday ,Nov 23 2014.From the moment we drove through the front gate, saw the magnificent grounds, and were awed by the entrance way to the main building, we all knew that the Chateau was the venue that we wanted for Lauras wedding. Meeting Laura Madden,and working with her was a total pleasure. Every aspect of our wonderful day was handled quickly, efficiently, and professionally, by Laura, and her outstanding staff. The bridal party arrived at 7:am and Veronica was there with an amazing wide smile ,helping with the makeup, hair and pre-wedding procedures. Someone from the staff was always present and available, when needed. Whatever minor "issues" arose , disappeared immediately.Santiago,our Maître d, was totally wonderful. His ability to maintain calmness while guiding the bridal party, parents ,and grandparents through the re... Read more

  • I wish that words were enough to express how grateful I am to have been married at the Pleasantdale Chateau. I was lucky enough to have had Laura as my wedding consultant and she helped me with all of my planning over many long months. Her advice and guidance was invaluable in making my wedding the great success it was. On the day of she implemented all of my ideas exactly how I wanted them (and sometimes even better than I could have imagined!). From day one I felt absolutely blessed to have her guide me through the incredible journey of planning my wedding. During the entire process and especially on the day of my wedding I felt that my happiness was truly important to her. Thank you Laura for making my wedding day a dream come true and for all of the hard work you put into it! The day of my wedding Maitre' d Santiago was there to help make sure everything went smoothly. He was an absolute doll and saved me on more than one occasion. My bridal attendants were always at hand to bustle... Read more

  • My wedding at Pleasantdale Chateau was a dream come true! I never really had all of the details of my wedding planned out, but after being a guest at a wedding there one year prior to getting engaged, I knew that it was where I wanted to have my own. It was the best decision I could've made. Thank goodness for Andrew!!! He helped us every step of the way by making recommendations but never being insistent about them. The grounds and Chateau are BEAUTIFUL and make you feel like you are transported to another country. The food is absolutely AMAZING, and the staff are all so WONDERFUL! You truly feel like you are the most important person that day. All of my guests had a great time and could not stop raving about the beauty of the grounds and the food. Because of Andrew and everyone at Pleasantdale, I truly enjoyed every second of my wedding day and I was so sad that it had to end. I can't wait to have another reason to go back!

  • Dear Andrew, I just wanted to thank you so much again for everything at my wedding on Aug 2nd. You and your staff were absolutely amazing. The service was completely beyond anything I could have ever imagined, and the setting was a complete fairy tale. I still can't believe it all really happened. I remember speaking to you on the phone months before the wedding and asking you if you had any advice for something special we could do to make our wedding unique and you said something like "you're having your wedding at the Pleasantdale Chateau, there's nothing else you need to do!" I know now that you were absolutely 100% right. Thank you again for everything!!
