Introducing New Jersey's newest upscale venue: Bear Brook Valley! Located in the heart of Sussex County, this venue is filled with sophisticated charm and is surrounded by rolling hills, miles of paved trails and gorgeous sunsets that make for a picture perfect backdrop. The upscale-rustic feel throughout makes Bear Brook Valley unlike any other venue. Their laid-back, full service approach allows you to create the wedding of your dreams with ease.
Along with their outdoor seating and dining options, which include outdoor decks with fire pits, they feature some amazing and unique upgrades including a Cigar and Whiskey Bar, Custom Snapchat Geofilters, Jersey Shore Waffle Bar (ice cream and waffles), Local Beer and Cheese Pairing Station, Jersey Shore Boardwalk Station, and College Grease Truck (end of the night favors) sandwiches (inspired by Rutgers R U Hungry Truck) just to name a few.
One inclusive wedding package
At Bear Brook Valley, they like to keep things simple by offering ONE inclusive wedding package that has almost everything you need for your your big day! From several outdoor/indoor ceremony options, to a 90 minute cocktail hour before the reception, their all-inclusive package includes a full open bar, and several unique menu options to choose from like “Smokehouse Bacon” (bacon station), Hawaiian Luau Station with a roasted suckling pig and Caribbean rum punch, Bourbon Station, NYC Food Cart Station, a Cowboy Cauldron Station, Banh Mi Station and more. Between 2 bars (one in the cocktail lounge and one in the ballroom) they have over 30 beer lines and over 20 different beers on tap with a large craft beer selection, seasonals and locally made beers.
Getting ready suites for the bride and groom
For the bride and her bridesmaids, they have a large Silo Suite to get ready on-site with a separate salon area, changing area and lounge area with a large TV and speakers for music. For the men, the Woodford Lounge is their “man cave to get ready" – this features a pool table, shuffle board, pac man, private bar, fire place and a 1931 Theo Koch Barber Chair that was on Rick Dale’s American Restoration (tv show). But wait, there's more! Outside they have a large shuffle board with a custom putting green for the guys to play outside while the girls are getting ready.
what their brides are saying
"Where to begin? It took me nearly 6 month to find a venue that I could fall in love with. New Jersey has so many venues to offer and I went as far as looking in PA and Upstate NY. When I finally stumbled upon this hidden gem I knew I wanted to book here. Adriana and Perry made me feel happy and comfortable with what they had to offer at BBV. When I booked construction was in the beginning stages and my fiance was a little nervous. However, after looking at their wedding package (mostly the bacon options) he was on board. Adriana, the event coordinator, has been there every step of the way for me. Each time I ask a question she is so helpful and did I mention she knows her wines. Ladies, as a bride to be at BBV, I suggest you give this place a shot. You will not be disappointed!"

"Bear Brook was the FIRST and ONLY venue we looked at. My fiancé and I knew immediately upon stepping foot into the building and meeting the event coordinator Adriana that we had found our spot! Adriana has been with us every step of the way and goes above and beyond answering all of my questions. She is always quick to respond and extremely helpful. The design of the venue is impressive. They literally have thought of everything. A great wedding venue addition to the area-- one that will stand out without a doubt. My fiancé and I couldn't be happier that we chose to celebrate one of the most important days of our lives at Bear Brook Valley."
