Don't take our word for it...listen to our brides "We never thought we would be able to afford this hidden gem in Princeton, but after meeting with staff and doing a tour of the site we knew immediately that we had our venue. The grounds and facility are gorgeous and the event staff are fantastic. Chauncey was able to individualize our plans and menu to fit into our budget and fit the visions that we had for our big day. Staff were incredibly informative, supportive and great to work with. Our event was better than we could have imagined and are truly happy that we chose Chauncey as they made the planning process fun and minimized the stress." As quoted on Wedding Wire.
Marriage equality is now the law in New Jersey. Civil marriage licenses are being granted to same-sex couples! Celebrate your love with a wedding at Chauncey. One of our happy brides posted the followig on Wedding Wire "Our wedding was beautiful, the food was delicious, and Chauncey’s staff went above and beyond anything we could expect. The staff were extremely accommodating, helping to make our wedding a memorable experience, which our family and friends still talk about to this day. I would highly recommend to anyone planning their wedding at Chauncey. It’s a wonderful place to get married, and we never felt we were treated any differently as a same sex couple."
Another happy couple, Holly and Claire, wrote the following after their November 23, 2013 wedding. "We wanted to let you know what a fabulous day we had! Thank you for everything! All our friends could not believe how good the food was, how beautiful the venue was, and how nice the staff was---a great experience overall!!!! Thank you for being so wonderful to us and our guests. Your gay friendly environment made all the difference for us and we so appreciate being made to feel so welcome."
Celebrate your bridal shower in style with a charming afternoon tea party. Bridal Tea Showers are a perfect remembrance of the bride’s special day. But don't take our word for it. The following is a quote from a thank you note received on November 11th.
"I want to thank you and your staff for helping to make my daughter's bridal shower so memorable. The tables were set beautifully, the food was delicious, and your staff was so attentive. My only regret is that I didn't know about the Chauncey sooner. Regards, Nita"
A Bridesmaid's Luncheon is a time for the bridal party to say farewell to the bride and for the bride to acknowledge her bridal party. This is the appropriate time to thank the bridal party, give them their gifts, and if the bridesmaids are giving the bride a group gift, this would be the appropriate time to do it. Also, because many members of the bridal party often come from out of town, it is a wonderful chance for the bridal party to spend some quality time together before the nuptials!
Tea for two-baby & you! Nothing would make an expectant mother happier than a surprise afternoon tea party with lots of sweet treats. Whatever you choose to make, there's no doubt that the mother-to-be will leave her shower feeling loved.
Whether you are celebrating your 1st or 100th birthday, a birthday party tea is the perfect celebration. Girls love tea parties, whether they're a toddler, pre-teen, or a Grandma. So why not satisfy their love for tea by throwing them a tea party for their Birthday!
