Our Events

First impressions are everything.

The moment your guests pass through our wrought iron gates and enter the beautifully appointed lobby of the Rockleigh they are certain to recognize the level of excellence that awaits them. Our Georgian style mansion, set amidst twelve acres of manicured gardens, reflects the charm and sophistication of a country estate. Our highly professional managerial and waitstaff graciously attend to every guest and every detail. Our outstanding gourmet cuisine will amaze your guests both visually and gastronomically. 

A first impression is sure to be a lasting impression for you and all of your guests at the Rockleigh.

If your dream is to exchange your wedding vows under the stars, our outdoor garden chapel - adorned with flowing fountains and a stone gazebo - is the perfect setting. Envision your first dance as husband and wife in our elegant and spacious Bristol Room or Grand Pavilion ballroom, complemented by an inlaid marble dance floor and glowing crystal chandeliers. Picture your guests presented with unsurpassed cuisine and attended to with impeccable white glove service. All this becomes the palette from which we will paint your dreams.

Your family has waited for this day with proud anticipation, the day your child reaches a milestone in their Jewish education. This is truly a time to celebrate with family and friends, and we at the Rockleigh can expertly orchestrate the party you and your child will remember always.

Our event managers and staff are well versed in the cultural traditions of so many of our guests who celebrate the ethnic customs of their country or religion.

We have hosted many Glatt Kosher, Indian, Russian and Persian events and are very much attuned to the design and arrangement that these events require. We encourage you to share with us the traditions that have been an important part of your life, so that we can bring your family together in the manner in which they are accustomed.

We at the Rockleigh pride ourselves in having played an important part in many of the milestones in our clients' life journeys. We joined together your families at your engagement party, we surprised you at your bridal shower, we watched you walk down the aisle as husband and wife, we pampered you at your baby shower, perhaps celebrated the Bar or Bat Mitzvah of that child and we toasted you at your 50th wedding anniversary.

Whatever the occasion - large or small - your family will always receive the same level of dedicated commitment to service for which the Rockleigh is known. Our goal is to help you enjoy the journey!

Because of the Rockleigh’s convenient location, ample parking and easy access to local hotel accommodations, we have hosted numerous corporate seminars, organizational galas, school functions, proms, retirement parties, fund-raisers and holiday parties.

The Grand Pavilion with an 850 person capacity is one of the only venues in Bergen County that is capable of hosting large scale corporate events and the Bristol Room can easily be converted into seminar space providing auditorium seating, audio-visual equipment and Wi-Fi access. Our event managers will assist you in planning an event that is certain to impress your guests and, more important, impress your boss.

Our Property

Set amidst its historical setting, surrounded by impeccable gardens, encompassing time-honored architecture and exquisite antique artwork and furnishings; we invite you to experience the sophisticated elegance and old-world charm of the Rockleigh.

Although the Rockleigh can host two celebrations at a time, the design of our venue is such that there is never any crossover between events. Both the Bristol Room and the Grand Pavilion have their own separate parking areas, lobbies, cocktail space, chapels, ballrooms, bridal suites and lavatories. We will always stagger the start time of the events so that both parties are never entering at the same time. Your managers and waitstaff are devoted solely to accommodating your family and friends. You can rest assured that our entire staff will be dedicated to making you feel as if you are the only bride in the world.

Cuisine

At the Rockleigh our highly trained culinary team will create seasonally adjusted menus uniquely patterned to your personal tastes. We offer both Continental and Kosher cuisines, with Glatt Kosher and Indian catering available through our highly recommended associates.

Recognition

There is no better recommendation than being recognized by your associates as out-standing in your field. The Rockleigh has received numerous accolades from such prestigious publications as The Knot, Manhattan Bride and New Jersey Bride. But, clearly there is nothing we appreciate more than a personal note from a bride and groom who write to tell us they did, most certainly, have the time of their lives! We thank you for allowing us to be a part of it.

Amazing. The Rockleigh blew away my expectations. I chose them due to their impeccable reputation. They are the most amazing staff to work with. Our wedding was a dream come true. The food and presentation were amazing. The ballroom is spectacular and the grounds were gorgeous. There are plenty of outside places to take amazing pictures.

There is not one bad thing to say about The Rockleigh Country Club. My wedding was a complete success and a total hit! Amazing service, hospitality, food and atmosphere. My wedding day was perfect.... just absolutely perfect and The Rockleigh had to do with a large part of the reason why. I seriously do not think there is any place better to get married. Thank you Rockleigh!

I just got married about two weeks ago and I'm still on cloud nine. This is greatly due to The Rockleigh, its beauty, and amazing staff. First of all, the venue is like Downton Abbey meets Gatsby, and everyone was floored by its grandness and elegance. The staff made sure everything was pulled off perfectly, even with so many moving pieces. They made me feel very special.

diazbo, The Knot

The service and staff are truly incredible. Bari was a pleasure to work with and plan the day with. Jaime was incredible the day of making sure everything went off with out a hitch. MY bridal attendant Daniella was at my side at every moment making sure I had everything I need. The place is absolutely breathtaking. They really know what they are doing and how to throw a party.
