Spring and summer may be the most popular seasons for weddings, but some couples prefer a winter wonderland for their big day. Whether or not there’s snow on the ground, celebrations held during the colder months can be just as beautiful as any other time of year. Winter weddings in New Jersey can be particularly gorgeous, especially when there’s sparkling frost, evergreen trees, and warm lights in the background.
If you’re getting married in or near New Jersey next winter, these local venues can provide the perfect setting for your wedding photos and videography.
The Graycliff in Moonachie, NJ is an sophisticated venue with tons of photo opportunities. Here you’ll find a stunning outdoor gazebo with sculptures and decorative wrought iron roof, a stone waterfall wall, and lush gardens.

No matter where in this venue you hold your ceremony and reception, you’re sure to get a picture-perfect backdrop.
