When we began planning our first-born's wedding, the first thing we did was "scramble" to reserve a place for the reception.
We looked at all the so-called "famous" 'Manors', 'Palaces', 'Resorts', and other 'over-the-top' wedding-reception venues.
We almost overlooked "Zeris" of Mountain Lakes until we made arrangements for guests to block-out a reasonably priced number of rooms at the Embassy Suites in Parsippany.
Embassy Suites agreed to "shuttle" guests within 5 miles to the reception location for free. . . . . So . . . we started to narrow our search and came up with "Zeris".
Asking around, we immediately were made aware of "Zeris'" impeccable reputation. Andy, one of the owners, immediately put our mind at ease with his professionalism and extensive experience in fullfilling memorable wedding receptions.
This was one of the best wedding experiences We've ever enjoyed and it didn't cost a fortune (not even close to what the "Manors" would have cost.) .
With the money we saved we added even more shuttles to the hotels so we wouldn't have to worry about any alcohol related incidents ruining the memory of the occasion.
Andy and his parther Chris also run the restaurant called Chris-Andys (Chrisandis) which is also excellent (see someone else's post about "Chrisandis") .
Thank you "Zeris" for a wonderful wedding!
