  • "Beyond Perfect"

    5 5 1
    Our March wedding at The Birchwood Manor was beyond perfect. Michael Marino, Mike (MD) Farrell, Jason, the chefs, the kitchen staff, the wait staff, and the rest of the crew truly outdid themselves! The planning process was easy with Michael. His years of experience helped put us and our parents at ease and took lots of stress off our plates. The cocktail hour was out of this world. Many of our guests thought it was dinner. Little did they know that they had a salad, a pasta course, an entree, and an array of desserts waiting for them in the ballroom. The Grand Ballroom at Birchwood is absolutely breathtaking. The windows, exquisite chandeliers, crisp linens, and massive dance floor were just what we were looking for given our large wedding. The food was better than we imagined we would get at any reception hall. There were so many choices when it came to picking our menus. People are still telling us how wonderful the food was and how much they ate. Our guests were happy all night long thanks to the Birchwood Manor chefs. I could go on forever and I want to share every detail, but just know you will not be disappointed when you book your wedding here. They have been in the business a long time and their experience makes all the difference in a PERFECT wedding like ours. THANK YOU, BIRCHWOOD and the MARINO FAMILY! Our day was better than we could have ever dreamed!

    "Gorgeous Gardens, Extraordinary Fountains, & So Accommodating"

    From the moment I stepped onto the property of Birchwood Manor I wanted to be married there. I was in awe of the gorgeous gardens and extraordinary fountains. It was the perfect backdrop for all our wedding photos. Once I met the owner, Michael Marino, it was a done deal. He was so accommodating and beyond helpful. We became quick friends. He didn’t push me off on assistants when I called but took the time to go over every important detail of our very special day. When he was unavailable, MD stepped in to make sure nothing was overlooked. These two made the ideal team of wedding planning perfection. They put my mind at ease every step of the way and ensured I enjoyed the planning process. We were married on The East Lawn. The Pergola was just divine as our Ceremonial Site. The area looked nothing short of amazing. Then we went to our Cocktail Hour in The Jefferson Ballroom that was fit for Royalty. Our guests could not believe the magnificent spread. The presentation was artistic and inviting. Every morsel was tastier than the next. The chefs had really outdone themselves. Our reception was in The Grand Ballroom. The dimly lit chandeliers and candles made it a very romantic and elegant setting to continue our celebration as husband and wife. Its grand size left more than enough room for our 225 guests, dining tables, photo booth, DJ, and colossal dance floor which was packed all night long! The staff at Birchwood worked together so efficiently that our day was absolutely flawless. Our wedding was the spectacular event I always dreamed it would be. Our family and friends continue to talk about the beauty of the venue, sensational staff, and delicious food! We were so pleased, that I am certain we will be back at Birchwood Manor for future celebrations!

    "The Food & Service is Absolutely 5 Stars!!"

    There are absolutely no words for how happy and thankful we are for Birchwood Manor and Mike, along with all the staff! From day one they did nothing but do everything to accommodate us. Not only is the venue beautiful but the food and service is absolutely 5 stars!! Neither of us, nor our family, had ever been to a wedding here and we can honestly say there were times we thought "Could this menu be too good to be true?", "Will the food be top quality?", "How's the service?" Every time we met with Mike, he made everything so easy for us. Fast forward to two days ago, we both could not have asked for a more beautiful night, amazing service, and absolutely incredible food. The minute we walked into our cocktail hour, people were raving about how plentiful and delicious the food was. When we got a first look at our room (Grand Ballroom) we were at a loss for words. It was more beautiful than we ever expected. The staff that night was incredible and our Maitre D, Jason, was always around to see what we needed without us ever having to look for him or do anything ourselves. INCREDIBLE, which is exactly why I did not want to wait to write this. There were times prior to the wedding we felt extremely calm and actually said, "It's because of Mike. It's all covered." And the cake! How stunning. Another part of the night that was more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. Thank you to the Birchwood Manor!! We are so thankful for having shared our day with you!

    "Magnificent & Magical"

    We could not have been happier with the results of our choice to have our daughter’s wedding at the Birchwood Manor. The grounds were lovely and the Jefferson Room looked magnificent and magical. The cocktail hour was tremendous. Countless guests commented and complimented on the quality and quantity of the choices. Every detail that we expressed to Farrell, our maître d’, was carried out to the letter. We were treated like family and every request was honored. I am grateful to the staff at the Birchwood Manor for making this day stress-free so that we were able to enjoy this special occasion with our friends and family.

    We recently had our wedding at the Birchwood Manor and couldn't have asked for a better venue! The ballrooms and grounds are absolutely gorgeous, the staff was very accommodating with all of our requests, and the food was to die for. Michael was always on top of every detail and made sure the wedding ran perfectly, leaving us stress-free to enjoy our big day.

    "Absolutely PERFECT!"

    I cannot express enough the wonderful experience my husband and I had at Birchwood Manor for our multicultural wedding! From the very beginning, our Maitre D’ Farrell was so welcoming, patient, and professional. Our wedding was the first for both of our families, so it was extremely helpful having a calm and confident wedding coordinator to guide us through all the planning stages. Farrell brought the calming energy we needed, making the planning process very enjoyable. The venue is beautiful! Our guests commented on the charming and elegant décor, as well as the breathtaking outdoor landscaping. We really felt like winners finding a venue that was beautiful both indoors and outdoors! Our wedding day was absolutely PERFECT! Farrell did an amazing job keeping us on schedule. She was extremely attentive and made sure we had time for the things we planned, such as sneaking away for a brief nighttime photo session. The Birchwood staff did an excellent job transforming the event space for our ceremony and reception. All the rooms at Birchwood are gorgeous. We especially loved the Greenery, an atrium surrounded by plants, with sunlight pouring in through large windows. This was definitely a unique space for our cocktail hour. The Jefferson ballroom was the perfect room for our ceremony and reception. Our families and friends love to dance, and the spacious ballroom gave us a comfortable space—even when our entire party was out on the dance floor! We were lucky to have beautiful weather and enjoyed taking photos outside by the fountains and archways. All the food provided by Birchwood Manor (cocktail hour, dinner, dessert and cake) was AMAZING and our guests noted that as well. It was such a pleasure working with Farrell and the entire Birchwood team! You can tell they love what they do and genuinely care about making your day unforgettable. We highly recommend them!!!

    "Treated Like Royalty!"

    Karen and I were simply astounded by how perfect our wedding reception evolved at the Birchwood Manor in Whippany, From the very first time we spoke with Farrell and Mike right through to the completion of our spectacular evening, they and the staff were absolutely fabulous! We were treated with great interest in our theme (we were married on the moon landing 50th anniversary) and cooperation, diligence, and patience to help create and fulfill our dream event. We were treated like family (maybe royalty is a better description)! Prior to our big day, Mike and Farrell were always available to answer questions and provide experienced guidance. During the event, the staff did a wonderful job and were most unobtrusive. The food was magnificent with an amazing variety of choice delicacies, much to the delight of our guests. We received so many compliments on the beautifully decorated rooms, the food, and the staff! Everyone had a truly wonderful night. We recommend this venue most highly for anyone planning a special day. A fantastic experience – Wonderful staff led by Mike and Farrell Divinely delicious food with so many choices Beautiful cocktail room and ballroom We definitely were ‘over the moon and back!’ The Birchwood Manor was fantastic!
