Description:

The Germanic-American Institute has been the ideal venue for couples looking for a charming and romantic wedding venue for over 40 years. The beautiful, lush lawn with a spectacular array of blooming flowers is the perfect setting for an outside ceremony. The "Haus" itself is a magnificent, turn of the century, Georgian-style mansion. The breathtaking grand staircase from which the bridal party descends has been called the most beautiful on Summit Avenue. Charming dining rooms with grand fireplaces and elegant chandeliers provide the perfect backdrop to your festivities. Wedding ceremonies may be held on the outside patio surrounded by vibrant flower gardens and stately oak trees. In the case of inclement weather, or if you would simply prefer to be indoors, the ceremony can be moved inside. Receptions may also be held either indoors and outdoors. The spacious third-floor ballroom, complete with its own bar, is the perfect place for post-dinner dancing and fun.
