Less than an hour from New York City, the James Ward Mansion brings a certain New Orleans charm to Union County, New Jersey. The sheer magnificence of the 24 foot ceilings, gold gilded architectural detail, spiral staircases, fireplaces, and French appointments set the atmosphere of unsurpassed elegance and luxury. You’ll walk down the aisle to say your vows in the quaint chapel; your nuptials are an intimate affair with the people you love most to see your special moment. Or choose a lavish ceremony on the polished wooden floors of the library, saying “I do” before a cozy stone fireplace. Later, an opulent reception unfolds in the grandeur of the Grand Salon. Make a grand entrance on the balcony above your guests, and descend a spiral staircase to greet your friends and family. Dinner and dancing are a regal affair beneath the vaulted, gilded walls of this expansive space. You’ll be treated like royalty when the biggest day of your life takes place at the James Ward Mansion.
