“Where to start…When we started planning our wedding, we wanted a place that provided an elegant setting for a black tie affair, and also accommodate our 230 guests. Food was a top priority in addition to ambiance. Upon meeting Peter, the wedding coordinator, I immediately knew he would be able to cater to our every need. His warm demeanor and knowledge about the industry immediately earned our trust. He answered our 1000 questions and was knowledgeable about all of the vendors we planned to work with. Being a bit anxious and anal, Peter made me feel entirely at ease, and made this wedding planning process a breeze. I knew we were in fantastic hands.
Food: We were so amazed at the complexity of the choices for food throughout the entire affair. There are so many options to choose from, and was a selling point for us. In addition to the at least 13 different types of pass-arounds during cocktail hour, there was such a variety of options for chafing and action stations. People still can’t stop talking about our cocktail hour. Not only about the ABUNDANCE of food, but also the quality. The lamb chops were simply some of the best I’ve ever had. All of the dinner options were fantastic, and when we walked around to greet our guests, all we saw were empty plates (despite who full everyone was after cocktail hour).
Atmosphere: We were able to choose different lighting options to set the mood for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. Being that we had a fairly large wedding, we wanted to make sure that there was space for everyone during each aspect of our wedding. The cocktail hour space is large with plenty of tables for people to nibble. The grounds are breathtaking, and the dance floor was able to hold (for the most part) our very rowdy party.
The wedding attendants catered to our every need while we got ready, and during the wedding itself. Shout out to Bea for making sure we ate and relaxed a bit. Every aspect was perfection and provided our dream wedding.”
“I can’t say enough about Brooklake Country Club and their staff. Peter had us sold on the venue the first day we visited. He was amazing to work with. Anything we asked for he was willing to do for us. He went above and beyond to create the most amazing cocktail hour, dinner, and outstanding dessert display. We are so thankful for Peter and for his attention to detail and professionalism throughout our entire wedding experience. Our reception was perfect. Peter knows how to throw a wedding!
The food throughout our entire reception was excellent. People are still buzzing about our cocktail hour and how wonderful their food and dessert was.
Finally I need to give a shout out to Nelly, my bridal attendant. She was so amazing. As soon as we got to Brooklake she took me to the bridal suite and catered to my every need. She forced me to eat, which I am so thankful for and showed up with a fresh glass of wine as I mingled at tables with my guests. It was awesome having her throughout the reception!
I would highly recommend Brooklake if you are looking for a wedding venue. We could not have asked for a better party to celebrate our special day!”
“I legitimately loved our venue!!! Every single thing was perfect. Peter and Bea were exceptional !!! The food was delicious and thankfully we had a great maitre’d who made us make time to eat and enjoy each other. Can’t beat the service or environment!”
“I am eternally grateful to Peter and the entire staff of Brooklake Country Club for making my wedding day dreams come true.
From our first meeting with Peter when we saw the venue for the first time, it was obvious that the customer service was going to stand out from the rest of the venues we had seen (and we had seen several).
I have to say that one of the best parts about Brooklake is their full package: we weren’t nickel and dimed for lighting or food or using the bridal suite, etc. They only host one wedding at a time, and the food was excellent. They provide opportunites to upgrade for cocktail hour but we didn’t have the need to.
I continue to receive dozens of compliments on our wedding for the breathtaking views and atmosphere, the service, and the food, and I have Brooklake to thank!”
“Brooklake Country Club was a wonderful place to get married. Peter is so professional and is super helpful. I loved everything about this venue, from the grounds to the delicious food. I would highly recommend Brooklake Country Club to anyone!”
“We had an amazing wedding reception at Brooklake Country Club. I would highly recommend this venue. The quality of service and attention to details were top notch. Peter is outstanding to work with. He goes above and beyond to make you feel special. Everyone was raving about our wedding. Bea took care of us the entire night. You will not be disappointed at all! I can’t wait to attend a wedding here in the future.”
“The best decision my husband and I made during wedding planning was choosing Brooklake Country Club as our venue. Everything was absolutely perfect! Going into our wedding day, we knew that BCC was going to do a wonderful job with our reception, but they somehow exceeded our already high expectations – which we didn’t think was possible. Peter was absolutely amazing from the moment we met him until our wedding day.
He made the process very simple and stress-free. He truly cares about making your wedding day perfect…. Peter, Maury, Bea and the entire staff at Brooklake really take great pride in the receptions they run and they went above and beyond to ensure our wedding day was special. To be able to truthfully say that there was not one thing that went wrong, not one tiny hiccup, during our reception really speaks volumes to the type of service at Brooklake. BCC is a beautiful venue for your wedding. The grounds are meticulous, the food is delicious, and the service is incomparable. We are still getting compliments about how wonderful our wedding day was! We couldn’t have imagined a more perfect venue!”
“From the moment we walked into Brooklake Country Club, my fiance and I knew that is where we wanted to have our wedding reception. Peter was so helpful and flexible in creating a delicious menu and unforgettable night. We enjoyed the beautiful views of the golf course while outside for cocktail hour/pictures and continued to take in the scenery through the huge windows once inside the ballroom. Bea was my bridal attendant the night of the wedding and she was so accommodating, making sure we got to taste our cocktail hour food and had some time alone before greeting our guests. . It was an unforgettable night that could not have been more perfect. I highly recommend checking out Brooklake and guarantee that you will be impressed form the moment you step in!”
“Peter and the staff at the Brooklake Country Club made our wedding a day we will never forget. Everything was absolutely perfect and professionally done. I enjoyed working with Peter on all the preparations and he went above and beyond to ensure every detail was perfect. My guests are still raving about how great the food was and how amazing the venue was overall. Everyone had a great time and I highly recommend the Brooklake for any- one’s wedding or party.”
“After we got engaged we visited and reviewed about 30 or so venues looking for a country/vintage place. We visited Brooklake Country Club and sat with Peter Mitsaelides who was extremely courteous and professional. He convinced us that while they weren’t a country/vintage place we’d be allowed to decorate and personalize the place to our liking. This was surely a factor in picking this place but what sealed the deal was everything they had to offer us. Their menu was amazing with many options and their view outside was breathtaking. Their staff treated us like royalty and because they care our wedding turned out to be the best ever. We will certainly always remember the amazing time there and our guests will never stop talking about Brooklake Country Club. To Brooklake Country Club and the staff there, thank you for the best wedding ever. We will never forget and hope to be a part of someone elses wedding there. We highly reccomend Brooklake Country Club for everyone’s wedding.”
“Stanley & Peter were wonderful to work with. They were extremely accomodating and made us feel as if our wedding was the most important thing on their mind. The whole staff at Brooklake are also just as warm and friendly. The food (especially cocktail hour) is top notch. The setting and ambiance that the place provides between indoors and out makes for a remarkable backdrop in all pictures.”
“Brooklake Country Club is one of the most beautiful settings anyone could have their wedding at. The second I walked into Brooklake and met Peter I knew this was the place I wanted to get married at. Peter was so amazing to work with. He was extremely helpful and gave us extras in order to make our wedding more beautiful. I cannot put into words how wonderful it was working with Peter!!
Our wedding was the weekend after Hurricane Sandy and there was a short period of time where we did not know if we would be able to have our wedding at Brooklake due to the fact that there was no power and they did not know if they could get the gas for the generators. We are so lucky that they got the gas (the power actually came back on after our ceremony). I can’t tell you how many guests told us that our wedding was one of the nicest or the nicest wedding they had ever been to. Everyone loved the food and you would never have known there was a hurricane that had hit just a week before our wedding.
I would not hesitate to recommend having any event at Brooklake and if you are lucky enough to work with Peter and Bee you will not regret it!!!”
“Thanks to Peter, Bea, Maury, Stanley and all of the amazing staff at Brooklake we had our dream wedding the weekend after Hurricane Sandy. I spent the beginning of the week in tears assuming that there was no way that my wedding was going to take place due to the Hurricane. Then I got the call from Peter assuring me that everything would go on as planned. And that it did!! The grounds of the country club were immaculate, our cocktail hour was amazing, every little detail was executed exactly as we had discussed – all with smiles and professionalism from a team of individuals who had no power at home but came to work anyways. We continue to hear stories from our guests that make us smile and we know that we made the best decision ever when we chose BCC. ALL of our guests felt like VIP, we had a guest that is a professional bartender who commented that he’s never seen a bar run so smoothly and all of our vendors commented on how well executed the evening was. I highly recommend booking your wedding here!!!!!”
“The Brooklake Country Club is truly the most amazing wedding venue & we cant say enough nice things about it! Everything from the staff, the food, the atmosphere, the location…it is all just simply incredible!! When searching for venues, we visited a few before finding the Brooklake and when we visited with Peter, we just knew right away that this was the perfect place for our reception! Peter was so welcoming, professional and friendly we knew that he (along with everyone else) would meet our every expectation and they did not disappoint! Besides everything being pure perfection, we got married the week of Hurricane Sandy, and while at the Brooklake you wouldn’t even know there was a hurricane 3 days prior. THANK god they had a generator is all I have to say!! I heard so many sad stories of brides who had to cancel their weddings b/c their venue did not have power or a generator due to this horrible storm. Well, the Brooklake has an impressive generator b/c nobody even knew it was running on generators until they asked. My guests and ourselves were AMAZED, saying how when driving to the BCC they noticed many homes on the street had no power but when they pulled into the BCC every single twinkling light was on.. it was so beautiful!! Now, almost 2 months after my wedding, everyone is still raving at how delicious the food was and what an impressive job they did with everything, given the power situation!! Bee, the bridal assistant, is so sweet and was by our sides all night, getting us drinks/food and whatever we needed! If we could do it all over again, we would pick the BCC in a heartbeat!! Highly recommended!! Thank You to the Brooklake for an unforgettable wedding!!”
What a beautiful place to have a wedding!!! I could not have been happier. My guests RAVED about the food – from the cocktail hour to the sit down meal, I heard nothing but how great it was. Working with Peter was wonderful, he made the whole experience very comfortable for us. The day of the wedding, Beau was assigned to attend to my needs and that she did. (Although my only regret is I didn’t listen to her – she kept telling me to eat and I was too busy running around talking to everyone – totally my fault.) My pictures are already up on facebook and people cannot believe how pretty my venue was. If you are in the North Jersey area definitely go to Brooklake.
