WEddings at Chauncey
Your wedding is uniquely you...where you have it should be too! A scenic country setting just minutes from historic Princeton, New Jersey, Chauncey provides the perfect setting for your special day regardless of season. Warm up indoors with fireside celebrations in the Brodsky Gallery and Solomon Room. Seasonally (May-October), enjoy our Gazebo, Garden Pavilion Tent and even reserve our historic Laurie House exclusively for your special occasion, all overlooking our 370 wooded acres and picturesque lake. Chauncey is a charming locale for events in every season.
"This venue was one of the best decisions for our wedding. Amanda was easy to work with and went above and beyond with executing our wedding vision. She also has a calming and confident demeanor which is appreciated leading up to the wedding. It was a great location and food was solid. Our guests enjoyed themselves. I would definitely recommend this place if you are looking to have your wedding in Princeton."
- Ellen and Allen, February 2018
"I am writing this e-mail to make you aware of the outstanding job that Amanda Puskar did as the Chauncey coordinator of my daughter's wedding. We found Amanda to be very personable, responsive and down-to-earth in all matters relating to the wedding. Her disposition and demeanor made us extremely comfortable throughout the process. I just knew that when Amanda said that something would "get done" that we had no worries. The result was a fantastic wedding day. Our guests raved about the facility and services provided by Amanda and all of your staff members. On behalf of my family, thanks so much for the professionalism of your organization and your commitment to excellence."

"Thank you again for everything! Our guests couldn’t say enough about the beautiful venue and the incredible staff. Someone was always asking if we needed anything. The staff were very relaxed and friendly. Their service was impeccable. You, Daniel, and Maria get special shout outs from my heart for making Friday night and all day Saturday so magical. What to say about the food? I have never experienced such flavors and presentation on such a large scale. How did your chef and staff manage it? I felt like I was eating a meal prepared for a small dinner party instead of 180 people. Truly remarkable! Several guests remarked it was the best wedding they ever attended. I realize your facility and the Laurie house are gems, but it was the personal touch you and your team provided that transformed a wedding into a wonder!
I will always be a grateful MOG😊 "
