  • We had our wedding (both ceremony and reception) at the Skylands Manor this past June, and it was absolutely wonderful! Linda was amazing, the staff was wonderful, and the beauty of the place speaks for itself. If this is a place you're considering for your wedding, look no further. We are so happy we chose it to celebrate our marriage, and so many guests have complimented us on our choice as well. We highly recommend it.

  • Linda and her staff are amazing. Coming from a groom that planned most of the wedding, Linda was more then I could have hoped for. We basically planned an amazing New Years eve wedding in 8 months. We basically went in around May looking to have our wedding ASAP and Sat. Dec. 31st was available. After some thought and seeing other places we decided to just go with it, and make it a New Years Eve Extravaganza. We added an extra hour to the reception so that it ended at 1am. And we had an after party in the Library until 2am. Did I mention we rented all the rooms out? It was amazing. The whole night was just surreal, and It would only be possible with Linda and her staff. Our families thought we were crazy for going from engaged to married in less then a year Now everyone is telling me I should be a professional wedding planner. Thanks to Linda.

  • Linda Pergola at Skyland's Manor was absolutely incredible to work with! She made everything about the wedding planning process easy and she was extremely responsive throughout the entire year before our event! We couldn't have asked for anything more from our venue or from the people at Skylands Manor- they accommodated our every need as well as the needs of our guests!

  • I had a wonderful experience at skylands manor. The service was simply perfect.The food was fantastic and i wouldn't change one thing about the entire experience. It's been almost a year since we were married and our friends and family still remind us of what a fabulous time they had.

  • Linda at Skylands Manor helped us arrange our wedding ceremony and reception. It was a dream come true! Imagine having your wedding in a castle surrounded by the beautiful botanical gardens. We heard the food was great (as the bride and groom we barely had time to eat) The setting is magical. My wife and I would highly recommend Skylands Manor.

  • My daughter had her wedding at this venue recently! It was truly a fairy tale day. Nothing we requested was too much trouble. We arrived the day before wtih cars full of candles, candy jars, candy, favors etc. Everything was set up perfectly and we had a wonderful time as did all of our guests, several of whom are in the food industry. Everyone raved about the food and service. Thanks, you Linda and staff!

  • The Castle at the Skylands Manor is hands down the most amazing and beautiful venue in NJ. The food was amazing, which is not so for many venues. Cocktail hour is in all of the castle's main rooms, so guests can wander. The outside patio is gorgeus for guests to sit out on as well. The location is unreal, and the castle itself is UNBELIEVABLE. Linda the Catering Director is fantastic, and they set up/take everything down leaving you with nothing to do but only bring the candles/table seating/etc. to them before the wedding day. Our bridal party and family stayed overnight on the night of the castle (me and my husband were in the beautiful Queen Antoinette's suite) and you can stay there during the week too (we had a Friday night wedding so our family stayed there Thurs. night too)! You can view all of the rooms online and your guests book rooms there online too (it is very private, only 23 rooms in the castle so you'll need a hotel for your other guests - I would recommend the Residenc...

  • The Castle at Skylands Manor gave me my dream wedding. I got married in the gardens and then had my cocktail hour and reception inside the castle. It was truly a fairytale wedding. The food was amazing, the service was impeccible and it was well worth the cost. I called all the time asking questions and i always recieved a call back right away or an answer right then. They really helped to put me at ease the week of the wedding right through to the last hour at the reception. Beautiful venue! If you want to be a princess then this is your place!

  • We had both or ceremony and reception at Skylands and fell in love when we first saw it. Food was unreal, we had compliments all night! Attentiveness the day of was above and beyond, but the one thing I would have liked is if the weeks leading up to the wedding I would have gotten quicker responses than I did. For the high price we paid, I would expect a little bit higher level of service. Other then that it was amazing.

  • edit: i'm not sure how my review got transferred to this page. I want to clarify that I got married at the Skylands Manor in Ringwood. Let me start by saying that the grounds and the mansion are absolutely breath taking. I got married at skylands a few weeks ago. From start to finish the planning and responsiveness was very stressful. I would receive few answers to my questions and would get conflicting responses at times. As for the day of, it went pretty smoothly and Linda helped with everything. The servers were all very nice and efficiant although I wished our signature cocktail was served in something other than water glasses. The cocktail hour was beautiful, but the food at the reception was not at all. We did pay a significant amount extra for sushi and for lamb and fish. I was told that they began to run out of sushi during cocktail hour and the actual plated meals were not good at all. The crusted grouper we paid extra for was actually a soggy sour mess because they poured... Read more

  • We knew we wanted a fall wedding with a gorgeous outdoor area for a ceremony and intimate cocktail/reception area and Skylands definitely delivered. We we first met with Linda in August of 2009, we immediately liked her as she seemed to get what we wanted and really made us feel comfortable. In the months before the wedding we occasionally had questions which were always answered, although sometimes it took 2 to 3 days or a follow up call for a response. Within the two weeks before the wedding Linda, Brennan, and the rest of the staff seemed to always be available to answer questions or assuage concerns. The weekend of the actual wedding they were absolutely incredible! We didn't have to think about anything. They seriously took care of everything and couldn't have been more attentive. From the moment my parents dropped off decorations, programs, place cards, etc. to the moment I arrived to start getting ready, they were with us all the way. Linda ran the show seamlessly. She ...

  • I grew up around Ringwood and remember quite fondly ice skating at Shepards Lake. So when we got enaged, Skylands was the only place for me. We did not have our ceremony here as by our religion we had to marry in church. I timed my wedding so we could be a part of it. I will admit we were disappointed by how we were treated for most of the time we were planning our wedding. Only the couple of weeks prior to the wedding did we hear from Linda Pergola on a regular basis; but 6 months before our wedding, she was not sure who we were. From what I saw, she is understaffed during the planning phase, but well staffed the night of your affair. Linda truly knows her weddings, but very, very slow to respond unless you are a bride about to be married at Skylands. The staff at Frungillo's home office in Mountainside, NJ is less then desirable. Communication is at a stand still and we had to correct them (not Linda) often about when payments were due and how much. I wish there were more of Linda an... Read more

  • Skylands was slow to call back when I had questions and slow with sending out correspondences like the menu for the day and things of that sort. I have to say i was worried about the day of my wedding- the day of the wedding they do not mess around! Everything was perfect! it was exactly how i asked- everything- from my menus on the tables, certain items for kids placed on the correct tables, my favors- everything was perfect! the staff was awesome- any request was taken care of! Linda Pergaola- was wonderful! she took care of everything- absolutly nothing went wrong!! Food - although i didnt eat much of it- was absoulty raved about by everyone- we were nervous because we are very Italian and the tasting left a lot to be desired by parents- but my parents- two 100% italians- were very pleased with the food the day of! They said that tastings are hard becuase they really dont have the same chef for tastings- not sure exactly what the problem was!
