Highlawn Pavilion

North Jersey



Sweeping panoramic views of New York City, simple, sophisticated elegance, and award-winning cuisine make the Highlawn Pavilion one of northern New Jersey’s most magical and romantic wedding venues. Whether for a lavish ceremony for hundreds of friends and family or a small, intimate event, Highlawn Pavilion offers everything for your wedding celebration. With more than 100 years of history, Highlawn Pavilion provides a stunning selection of wedding sites for both ceremonies and receptions, from the formal banquet rooms and elegant parlors to the acres of beautifully landscaped grounds. The venue features a unique outdoor ceremony area, conveniently nestled next to the historic building at the cliffside edge of "Eagle Rock." This overlooks all of the local towns below with striking views of the New York City skyline—a uniquely beautiful and dramatic backdrop for your exchange of vows. Surrounding the outdoor ceremony area is also the Eagle Rock Reservation, with countless opportunities for wedding photos in the parkland. The gorgeous, bird’s-eye views can be enjoyed from the top floor banquet space as well. As guests pass the massive ornate bronze and crystal chandelier while they ascend the grand staircase, the reveal of The Pavilion Room, with the skyline in the distance, makes for an unforgettable first impression. As night sets and the skyline begins to sparkle, the view acts as yet another part of the décor, creating a sophisticated and impressive ambiance.
