  • I had the most magical, beautiful wedding day at Skylands Manor. My now husband was still deployed when I had to start our wedding planning. We had about a five month window before his homeport was going to shift to Japan. Linda at Frungillo/Skylands was incredibly understanding of my situation. At the time my husband and I only had email as our form of communication and at times it could be slow to receive messages. Linda gave me her personal and even told me to call her on her days off if there was anything I needed or if I didn't hear back from my husband right away when we were trying to finalize the venue details. This was a huge help when you have only 5 months to plan your dream wedding. When he returned from deployment, they were extremely accommodating in having him come to the venue to see everything and answer any questions. He was very happy with our choice! The day of the wedding went as smooth as I could ever imagine. Everything was absolutely perfect. I wasn't... Read more

  • I am so glad we chose Skylands Manor for our wedding venue (ceremony and reception). Our guests are still talking about how great a venue it was. As other reviews have stated, it is difficult to get in touch with Linda initially but on the weeks leading up to the wedding she is super responsive and accommodating. Her staff was super helpful with set up day of. There are no food tastings but the food is delicious so don't worry. We did not have to do much in way of flowers or decorations as the venue basically decorates itself. Cocktail hour, where you wander through the rooms of the mansion, makes for a super unique experience and was one of the selling points. The bridal suite you get for the night is gorgeous as well. Even in late November the grounds are beautiful here. Skylands made for our dream wedding and it could not have been better...thank you!!!

  • The question and comment we kept getting all night was... "How did you find this place and this is the best wedding venue I have ever been to." The wedding day was absolutely perfect and Linda and her staff are incredible and extremely attentive and accomodating. Leading up to the wedding it was occasionally difficult to get in touch with Linda. She is the only one there who can answer questions and is very busy. We were ultimately able to get all of our questions answered and everything turned out perfect. The food was amazing and plentiful! Linda also made sure that we took 5 minutes to sit down in a private room and get to sample everything during cocktail hour. The only downside worth mentioning about food is that they don't do a tasting but I can assure you it is delicious. The grounds are beautiful and we got some amazing pictures. One of my favorite things is also the ride in along the wooded road and the ceremony area, whether it's spring, summer, or fall it is absolut... Read more

  • We had our wedding at the Skylands Manor on 8/26/16 and we couldn't be happier with how it turned out! There are so many great things to say about this place...The manor and the gardens are absolutely stunning. The guests were so amazed with how unique the setting is. The food and cake were delicious! Even the pickiest of eaters raved about the food. Linda and her staff take care of everything the day of. So much so that I was able to relax and enjoy the day from start to finish. We are so happy that we booked this venue because our wedding was perfect!! Thank you and Linda and staff for all of your hard work! Marisa and Rob

  • A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. Skylands Manor is a splurge to be sure, but the photos that you'll have of the magnificent grounds and gorgeous architecture in your wedding album make it truly priceless. Not only were our guests blown away by the venue from the moment they drove up that dramatic entryway, but everyone raved about the food from cocktail hour to the decadent plated desserts. The Frungillo Caterers are consummate professionals who helped make the day run smoothly and took extra attentive care of me and my groom. They made this process of getting married effortless! Like most brides I had many questions and with the help from Linda Pergola and her team, they answered all of them! Not once did I feel like a burden or that she was uninterested. If Linda was not able to answer the phone, she always called back or emailed me with the answer to my question. I'll give you another example of how amazing Linda from Frungillo Caterers was: On the day of my wedding, the loops on my bustle someho... Read more

  • Skylands Manor "The hidden jem in the woods". I recently just had my wedding there in April, the staff and hospitality was amazing. They recently got their ballroom redone, which in itself looks fantastic! I was so happy to have my wedding in the newly renovated ballroom. Linda was amazing, from beginning to end. I was overjoyed to have our guests stay in the bed and breakfast. Lisa assist with the reservations, and assured that our rooms were blocked off and will be ready to go for our guests to check in. I wish I can do this all over again. Maybe my twentieth anniversary, will renew our vows. Thank you Frungillo and Linda for making my day come true.

  • My husband and I knew from the moment we got engaged that we wanted to use Frungillos at Skylands Manor. We grew up in town so to us, it was perfect. Most weddings are done at halls with the same type of expectation. From the beginning we knew we wanted to make things different and memorable. Linda and her entire staff were incredible. They prepped us, got all the work done in a timely manner, explained every detail and helped us create the beautiful wedding we had in our minds. I couldn’t have asked for a better catering company, venue and support staff to help us through what can be such a stressful day. Thanks to them, everything was PERFECT!!!

  • I got married in April, and let me tell you, it was not to hot, and not to cold, to have this perfect setting wedding at "The Castle" at Skylands Manor. The entire staff was very cooperative, and willing to do anything to make my day special. Linda Pergola, was such a big impact into planning my wedding. She was so hospitable, and considerate to our fine - detailed wedding. Especially, considering my newly wed husband's strong Indian culture. During cocktail hour, the staff was extremely good at keeping the rooms clean. They were so many different rooms used for cocktail hour, each of them were so well detailed and decorated.

  • Let me begin by saying how breath taking the venue is. They did such a wonderful job on the newly renovated ballroom. They really made my vision come true, just the way I dreamed of it when I was little girl. The staff catered to our every need. White glove service, made it top notch. Cocktail hour food, was amazing. Very choreographed by the way the staff brought out the food. From dinner to dessert.

  • I got married in late March of this year. The staff was phenomenal, they were very much on top of their game, when it came to serving our guests. Everyone was respectful, professional and always have a smile on their face. The maitre de, Linda was absolutely amazing . The menu was perfectly selected at our finale meeting with Linda. To top it off, the venue itself was gorgeous. Thank you Frungillo Staff.

  • Words can't describe how beautiful this venue is, and to add on how lucky I was to celebrate with my close friends and family in March for my wedding. Frungillo Caterers really know how to make such a beautiful display for cocktail hour and really have a good sense into selecting the main entree for the reception. The best part, was working with Linda Pergola, from the day we booked our wedding to her being the maitre' de, lead coordinator. Her staff was super accommodating through out the day of getting ready. It was an honor and such great experience to have my special day at the Castle.

  • My daughter's event at the Skylands Manor was a night that we will always cherish. Our friends and family still talk about it whenever we get together. I was impressed and grateful for the extent the staff was willing to go to make this night magical. Each and every member of the staff went the extra mile from set up to the end of the evening to make sure our guests were comfortable, satisfied, and well-cared for. Linda, the catering director, is a ceaseless bundle of energy and worked tirelessly to make sure every detail was perfect, from the decor to the food to the service. Linda was personally invested in making sure that everything was perfect and no detail was overlooked. She gave us excellent ideas from the outset of the planning and even helped us to execute our vision, including lining the driveway with lanterns so that as our guest arrived they were greeted with a lighted path that looked amazing in photographs. The food was to die for. It was abundant, beautifully pr... Read more

  • Outdated system and under staffed Where to start... first we used both the hotel/bed and breakfast and wedding venue. Communication with the staff is difficult to say the least. Email to Linda the catering or Lisa for accommodations are poorly handled. Multiple emails went unanswered to Linda and Lisa only responds on Wednesdays! The lack of staff and over worked staff shows thru! We knew that the establishment was dated but that is def part of the charm. Linda walked us thru and sold like a true sales person. She said you can do anything you want and we will make your day just perfect. Well once they get your money there is a different tune sung! A ceremony space in the basement - which looks like a morgue. When we dropped off our 2nd payment and discuss a few details of the ceremony Linda was not thrilled. I asked if we could get an idea of how many chairs would fit in the room that we wanted to hold the ceremony, her response was that she didn't have the staff to get the c... Read more

  • Linda and her staff were incredible the day of our wedding. She is on top of everything and ensures that everything goes smoothly. The food was absolutely incredible- my guests constantly bring it up haha. The location is just stunning- the castle, the grounds, everything. We were even able to continue the party after our reception in the recreation room upstairs (with out own drinks & snacks). Our closest friends/family stayed in the rooms of the castle with us (even though we didn't pick the option to actually rent the whole castle overnight), which was so much fun. Linda made sure that my husband and I were well fed in our suite before we joined everyone else for cocktail hour. They just kept bringing more and more plates of food haha. The bridal suite (Queen Antoinette's Suite) is so beautiful and comfortable. My bridesmaids and I had an incredible time getting ready in the living room, and my husband and I got to enjoy the suite that night and wake up to a view of the grounds w... Read more
