  • I recently organized a black tie fundraiser event with Frungillo at Skylands Manor. Everything from booking the hall, to organizing the specifics of the evening, to the actual event was absolutely excellent. The venue was surreal, with several last century rooms that boasted the cocktail hour and a modern and tastefully designed hall that hosted the formal dinner and dancing. The food at the cocktail hour was perfect (and served very effectively ie no waiting around for hors'douvre service), and the bartenders efficiently served top shelf liquor drinks. Linda, who was my point of contact in the event organization, was also the Maitre'D. She and her team executed flawlessly. The service was very quick and efficient and the food was spectacular. Linda and her team were also extremely helpful in arranging all the ancillary stuff like valet parking and general decorations. I would highly recommend the venue and the Frungillo team for any event here - whether a fundraiser, wedding... Read more

  • We had our wedding reception at the Castle at Skylands Manor in Ringwood. We worked with Linda Pergola at Frungillo throughout the process and she was amazing. You absolutely cannot get a better value than what Frungillo offers. There was so much food for such a reasonable price that selecting them was a no brainer. The food was great, and the staff was lovely and accommodating. The Castle is quite pretty and a unique venue for the reception. Having the cocktail hour in the house was very neat, before we moved over to the ballroom where our guests packed the dance floor all night. We had about 200 people, so finding a unique space that can accommodate that many was a little challenging, so we were delighted with Skylands. At the end of the night, as we were wrapping up the after party at about 1 a.m., we were surprised to see Linda herself helping clean up! It had been an incredibly long day for her, but that’s what you get when you use Frungillo - personal and attentive service from... Read more

  • We just had the wedding of our dreams at the Skylands Manor thanks to Linda, Frungillo Caterers, & the rest of the team. The food and attentiveness were absolutely incredible. It was the most amazing day we could have asked for and we are so grateful. This was the best decision we have ever made by far!

  • We got married at Skylands Manor in June 2019. My husband and I fell in love with the beautiful grounds and chose to have an outdoor ceremony and reception. The day of our wedding, everything fell into place and turned out beautifully. Linda arrived early and was setting everything up with her team. She made sure to check in with the bridal party and was responsive to any questions of concerns we had the day of. We did have a difficult time getting responses to questions prior to our wedding. We had many unanswered emails and had to follow up more than once to get a response. Like stated above, we chose to get married outside, and needed to book a tent. This process took us over 7 months to do, due to the lack of responses. It got to the point where my husband and I started contacting rental companies on our own to get pricing quotes. The lack of communication made wedding planning stressful at times. If you are a bride that needs an immediate response or answer you will most l... Read more

  • We had planned for a Memorial Day weekend black tie spring wedding at a castle with an outdoor ceremony inspired by Greens, blushes and rosegold colored pallettes for over a year.(my husband is active duty military and stationed in Oklahoma and we planned everything with multiple trips between okc and NJ. One can only hope that wedding days go as perfectly as planned, but like rain during an outdoor ceremony things can go awry. However, professionalism and honesty are vital substances that are not only EXPECTED but REQUIRED from a vendor when you as a client are paying thousands of dollars for the "big day" and have put all your trust in their hands as you sign on the dotted lines of the contract who made the entire process sound promising before accepting the money. We did not receive this common courtesy from Skylands manor or its staff promptly following signing the contract and initial deposit clearance for our wedding. 1. The week prior to the wedding: We stopped by the ring... Read more

    responded with the following comments.

    Dear Tasha. We were overwhelmingly upset when we saw the conditions of the small section of the back lawn of Skylands a few days before your Wedding. We cannot believe that the contractor that the state hired would have left that area in that condition. The emergency work on the roof was told to us that it had to be done and we had no say at all on this repair. I am also happy that the state did respond to our request prior to your Wedding and cleaned up the area to the best of their ability to get it ready for the Wedding. Skylands is over 1,000 acres and it is unfortunate that this 10x20 area was only mulched and should have been sodded after there work. We know how strong you were about having your ceremony outside but we don't control rain or weather and you do have some spectacular photos of the start of your ceremony outside at Magnolia Lane behind Skylands. We are so happy that the crane and fencing were removed prior to your Wedding. It was our pleasure to cater your Wedding and wish nothing but the best of luck to you all. If you need us for anything, please call us direct. Thank you again and Congratulations on a wonderful Wedding.

  • Skylands Manor is an incredibly beautiful and unique place to get married, and we had an amazing day! In terms of the venue itself, everything was perfect (you'd be hard pressed to find a much cooler place for your wedding), and the food was fantastic. Pete (bartender) was incredibly helpful and kind. He was around when we were setting up the week of and went above and beyond to make sure we had all of the help we needed. He was truly phenomenal. We had a lot of communication issues with Linda and some of her team leading up to the wedding, and it made planning unnecessarily stressful. In the beginning, we couldn't get replies to any emails, texts, or phone calls whatsoever. If we received anything, it was months later. Leading up to the wedding we heard from her more often (mostly when money was due), but many of our questions went unanswered or we couldn't get complete answers for most things. There were a ton of miscommunications- we would be asked for information about t... Read more

  • Maître d’ day of was great. Promised a bridal attendant and we never saw her. Communication concerning planning was horrible. Had the layout of the reception wrong despite several corrections. Owner of the company personally attempted to correct problems because the staff responsible on site wasn’t helpful.

  • I had my wedding here on 8/31/2018 and I could not have been happier. I knew Skylands Manor was for me the moment I stepped into the castle. I met with Linda who was preparing for a wedding that day and she was a little distracted, but that is only because of the dedication she has to making her bride's day perfect. She did the same for me on the day of my wedding, as did Roxanne and the rest of the staff. A thing they did that I did not expect was that they had all of the cocktail hour food set up in the library for my husband and I so that we could eat and have a quiet moment together. The bridal suite (where the ladies get ready) is included over for the couple, but my husband and I also decided to rent the rest of the rooms for our bridal party and some other friends and family. DO THIS! It was so fun to have so many loved ones around to continue the celebration, and it included an after party with wine and cheese and a breakfast buffet the next morning. In conclusion -- ge... Read more

  • My husband and I got married at Skylands Manor a little less than a month ago, and I was truly blown away by the entire experience. We had wanted a romantic garden style venue, but we wanted a venue with character and history, not a cookie cutter wedding hall. Skylands is a gorgeous manor in the middle of the botanical gardens in North Jersey, it captured everything we were looking for. The venue was perfect, and the food was plentiful and delicious. We lucked out with the weather, and had our ceremony in the gardens, which was picture perfect. Afterwards, people couldn't stop raving about how good the food was during the cocktail hour! They do not offer tastings, so you just have to trust they know what they are doing, but they absolutely do. The cocktail hour was one of the highlights of the night, simply because the food, the rooms, and the decor were all so beautiful. The reception was lovely, and while the hall was a little tight with my 150 guests, it actually made the ro... Read more

  • Our wedding at Skylands Manor was absolutely beautiful! Even though it looked like it was about to rain leading up to and to the end of our outdoor ceremony, it was still a perfect fairytale wedding. We got married on a Sunday but we essentially spent the weekend at Skylands. Our ceremony rehearsal was the Saturday before and Linda was great at explaining to my bridal party (including all the many small children we had walking with us) how the day was going to go. On the day of, Linda was great at keeping everything on pace. She checked in on us often and made sure we had everything we needed. The food was amazing during cocktail hour and the reception and all of our guests raved about how wonderful everything was. I only wish that my husband and I got to sit down and taste more of it. Only our immediate family stayed in the available rooms but every room was amazing and the bridal suite was absolutely gorgeous! Our photographer had a great time shooting pictures there as well as in ju... Read more

  • Skylands is a beautiful venue - the grounds are amazing for photos and the castle is really fun to walk around in for cocktail hour. I had my wedding on the lawn outside under a tent and the venue was really flexible in allowing me to choose what tent I wanted and what rentals I wanted to bring in. The food was fantastic and there is a ton of food at cocktail hour. The reception was beautiful, and the staff was great when it came to the setup of the tent and servicing the dinner. In terms of planning ... Linda, the venue coordinator, was at times hard to get in touch with. She did always get back to me eventually, but I felt that our conversations were rushed a lot of the time causing many details to be skimmed over and made me feel like I wasn't being listened to. She was a bit disorganized, which left me feeling not very confident prior to the day of. This also made the day of stressful for me, especially leading up to the ceremony. We didn't end up doing a formal rehearsal becau... Read more

  • I just got married there on June 8th and everything was beyond perfect! Linda was amazing at helping to coordinate and manage everything the day of, as well as doing all the planning ahead of time. The manor and the grounds are beautiful and all of my guests kept raving about how gorgeous everything was. The food was absolutely delicious and my only regret was that I was too full to try everything during cocktail hour! The guest rooms were beautiful as well and I would definitely recommend staying in the Queen Antoinette suite or the King suite!
