Dancing On The Clouds

A newly married couple's first dance is a magical moment, even without special effects.

However, for a truly unique and surreal first dance, consider an effect known as “Dancing in the Clouds.

This effect involves the operation of a dry ice fog machine, enveloping the dance floor in a thick layer of low-lying fog.

Hurricane Productions has extensive experience operating this technology; this ensures flawless execution.

The fog typically sits between ankle and knee height, giving the appearance that you are dancing in the clouds.

As seen in the video above, it also makes photo and video footage look absolutely incredible. To get more information about this feature or to check our availability, please contact us using this short form.

Rutgers Gardens is one of the most beautiful outdoor wedding spaces in New Jersey.

A Rutgers Gardens ceremony, surrounded by the serenity of the grounds, is a special place to say "I do."

The property is well suited for medium and large-scale weddings. While the grounds are indeed sprawling, your overall guest count will likely be limited to the number of tables able to fit in the pavilion.

There is ample overflow space but with an outdoor wedding it's important to plan according to the season and forecast. The pavilion and neighboring cabin offer cover for inclement weather.

There are two recommended ceremony locations at Rutgers Gardens.

And one secret location...

For those looking for a unique and intimate ceremony, the Rutgers Gardens Pine Forest offers an experience like no other.

After a short hike through Helyar Woods the trail opens up to a breathtaking sight.

Perfectly arranged rows of pine tress extending radially in all directions. A carpet of pine needles softens the ground and footsteps quickly become silenced.
