We had our ceremony and reception @ The Womans Club of Englewood. Our theme was something of a George Melies/vintage celestial style. The colours were blue with some silver and purple thrown in. Also, because we are nerds, we walked down the aisle to Star Trek themes arranged for Piano(TNG for groom and party, TOS for Bride) and our cake was the ending of KUNG FU from Nintendo (see picture.) Some how everything tied together in an awesome way and everyone had a great time. The End.
If you want beautiful and UNIQUE wedding pictures, go to Carole. She has an amazing eye and talent. She is also a pleasure to work with. She photographed 2 weddings we attended prior to ours we and fell in love with the pictures.
We are not the kind of folks that like to pose for pictures. She is all about letting us be our natural selves. She is able to capture the essence of who we are in a beautiful way. HIGHLY recommended!
Don't confuse them with the one in Arizona (Mischief Brewing Co.) Mischief Brewing is based out of the NY/NJ area and they specialize in small batch, high gravity beers. We had their Irish Red, Pale Ale, Coconut Stout, and Apple Pie Cider at our wedding. Mischief Brewing knocked it out of the park. I personally had the latter 2, and they were amazing. The coconut stout was smooth and the apple pie cider was exactly that! You can taste the spices. Our guests raved about it! HIGHLY recommended!
We found a lot of banquet halls in NJ to be gaudy, have no natural light, no character, and too expensive for what you get. Thankfully, we found the Woman's Club of Englewood. This historic landmark is charming, well-kept, and budget-friendly. This is an ideal location for a small wedding, no more than 100 heads (you want room for a dance floor!)
You are able to decorate the ballroom to your liking, which was a big draw for us as we were having a DIY wedding due to budget constraints (and we thankfully had a lot of help!)
Speaking of help, Maria and Tom were super helpful in every way imaginable. Very nice and professional people. Maria is an endless resource of ideas and if you need reasonably priced contacts for flowers, catering, etc - she's got it! We couldn't afford a DJ - they offer an IPOD Set-Up so we were able to play the music we like for a fraction of the price! They offer beautiful lighting packages and much more. We were able to offer our guest a great atmosphere that was true to us. We couldn't have done it without the Womans Club of Englewood. We couldn't be happier to have had our wedding here.
