A Beautiful Landmark Is Reborn in Nanina’s in The Park

A Landmark is Reborn…

From the moment you step onto the luxurious grounds of Nanina’s in the Park, you will be swept away with beauty and grandeur at every turn. Providing a backdrop that will transport you to a timeless villa in Tuscany, you will be immersed in a combination of lush outdoor gardens, grand interior ballrooms, marble staircases, classically sophisticated amenities and meticulously detailed ceilings and chandeliers. Their goal is to provide all of their guests with the perfect location for weddings, from small intimate ones to events of up to 400 people. Nanina’s in the Park will make your gathering one to remember.

Nanina’s has been hosting weddings for over 65 years and is a multiple award winner from many of the industry’s most well-respected authorities. The original ballroom was built in 1989. When the landmark facility was purchased by Vito Cucci, Barry Maurillo and Joe Maurillo, they had a complete renovation performed in 2002. Now, a spectacular multi-million dollar renovation of the Grand Ballroom is in the final stages, sure to provide an experience that is second to none.

The latest renovation has created a brand new ballroom with unique custom design trim, high ceilings and custom-design railings. Not simply a redecoration, the massive space was brought down to the bare walls and then built anew to embody the vision of the owners and artisans. The spectacular new space incorporates the latest technologies, while maintaining the warmth of woodwork and trim. Each department at Nanina’s in the Park is excited about the upcoming “Big Reveal” expected to take place before the end of February. The level of craftsmanship is evident in every corner of the Grand Ballroom, with no detail going unnoticed. The effect is breathtaking and whether you will be attending an affair that has already been scheduled or are selecting a date to book your own wedding, guests will be treated to an experience like no other. For weddings, the day will be truly one to remember by everyone in attendance.

Set within the beautiful acres of Branch Brook Park, itself designed in the romantic tradition, Nanina’s is as closely associated with the park as are its thousands of cherry blossom trees. In fact, the park is listed among the five best locations in the Western Hemisphere to view the beautiful trees. With undulating hills, scenic vantage points of the lake and streams meandering through woodland glades, a more tranquil and romantic setting is hard to imagine.

The lavishly manicured grounds are complete with a garden terrace waterfall and Florentine arbor which provides the perfect backdrop for your outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour. Winding marble staircases, a “Juliet” balcony and hand-painted Cathedral ceilings are just a few of the amenities within Nanina’s in The Park. From the architecture of the spacious antiqued reception rooms, which include an early 20th century library, trimmed in mahogany and featuring a vintage neoclassic fireplace, to the remarkable new Grand Ballroom, you will be surrounded in a one-of-a-kind ambience, for a once-in-a-lifetime celebration.

The venue has long been famed for delicious, original Italian cuisine. Nanina’s reputation for excellence has continued for generations and is unrivaled for its incomparable menu. If exceptional cuisine, impeccable service and unsurpassed presentation are not enough, their unique location will positively captivate you. It is the combination of location, service and ambiance that sets the venue apart. With its new world-class Grand Ballroom, Nanina’s in the Park is truly a landmark reborn.
