The event was wonderful!  Patti is a star and her work ethic is absolutely beyond what one person can do.  We appreciated her input and expert advice on all the different aspects of planning the wedding.  Her organizational skills are superb and the staff responds to her excellently.  The food was delectable and the bartenders were very knowledgeable and courteous.  The large tent is beautiful and quite accommodating; however our only complaint is that if you book a wedding for November and the weather is chilly, ensure that the heaters are placed as to not overheat certain guests while others freeze.  Otherwise we enjoyed the day and thank you and the staff from the bottom of our hearts!

I had my wedding at The Skylands Manor, in Ringwood, NJ in December and my husband and I absolutely LOVED it!  The food was beyond delicious, the service was phenomenal, and the facilities are breathtakingly beautiful.  All of my guests were raving about it for weeks after!  Both of my parents as well as my husband’s parents were beyond satisfied with the overall experience as well.  We had a budget like most weddings and Linda, who works for Skylands, was so helpful in helping us figure out the perfect reception.  During my whole engagement and the day of my wedding, Linda and Frungillo Caterers were there to help me with all of my needs and were very accommodating to make my dream wedding come true.  I could not have asked for a better day.  I would highly recommend them to all of my family and friends!  THANK YOU!

Our wedding planning process began very early and we had our hearts set on a winter wedding, but our date became unavailable.  "Have Faith in Ben" is the best way to describe our experience at The Mezzanine.  Ben stepped up and worked with us to put together a FANTASTIC summer wedding at The Mezzanine.  My wife and I went with the flow knowing that everything would get done and be done beautifully.  A month prior to the wedding, Ben met with us to ensure that everything was on schedule.  If you are a controlling bride, you probably should look elsewhere as the experience with Ben and team is more about collaboration and trust.  Ben provided us with many ideas and sold us on the food and drink possibilities for our cocktail hour and reception.  Everyone is raving about the food... delicious, delicious, delicious!  Although specialized in Italian/American cuisine, the chefs at Frungillo prepared excellent Peruvian dishes.  The team at Frungillo surprised us with many of the details we had requested at the reception including mini bottles of Tabasco sauce, cotton candy bags and excellent decorations for our many stations during cocktail hour.  The venue is unparalleled in beauty and is quite unique, only one of our guests had been there previously for a wedding.  This is certainly not a wedding factory setting!  Since the place is so unique and not outfitted with soundproof glass, the acoustics of the room could offer a challenge.  This problem can easily be overcome if you hire a professional DJ and quality equipment.  The location has endless possibilities as far as decor and is very inviting within its concepts, though the bathrooms are on the 4th floor and require an elevator ride.  If well planned in advance, you could coordinate to have seniors/disabled use a single bathroom on the first floor.  The building maintenance company did not have the bathrooms air conditioned on the day of the wedding so please be aware if you are booking a summer wedding over the weekend, which was our only inconvenience of the wedding.  Cheers to our fantastic wedding experience that we will be talking about for years to come!

We had the wedding of our dreams at Oakeside Mansion. It is a true architectural wonder! Our cocktail reception was held in the Mansion and the dinner was held in the tent. Friends and relatives are still talking about how wonderful everything was! I worked with Amy and Angel, both of whom are awesome! I decided on a cocktail reception with five stations, all of which my guests loved. As an aside, when I first met with the folks from Frungillo, I mentioned the groom likes a certain "spirit" and to please be sure this was included among the drink choices. At the reception my husband ordered his drink preference and was told it was not available. However.... Frungillo promptly sent someone out to procure my husband’s preferred special "spirit" despite the pouring rain! Way to go Frungillo! Thank you for a fantastic wedding day- we loved it!

We had our wedding at the Castle at Skylands Manor on May 3rd. All I can say is LINDA LINDA LINDA! From the moment we began working with her, she was helpful, friendly, informative, flexible and so on. The day of the wedding it rained (the ceremony and guests were already set up outside) and she had everyone in and seated downstairs (plan B) in no time. She was extremely attentive to me the entire day/evening. I really couldn't have asked for a better or nicer person to work with. It really made the day that much better. As for the actual venue, it was breathtaking and magical and every bit of what I dreamed my wedding would be. The food was beyond excellent. Guests are telling me that our wedding was the BEST (food, venue, service, etc.) they've been too in a long time. Thank you Linda Pergola and Frungillo Caterers, I truly had the exact fairytale wedding I wanted :)
