Me and my wife had our reception here and it was amazing. Start to finish was a dream come true. Simple and elegant and just breath taking.

The Collingswood Grand Ballroom is one of the most beautiful venues in NJ that you’ve never heard of. My husband & I lucked out when we found this venue. It was flexible in the number of people it could accommodate, and they never book more than one wedding a day. We were absolutely stunned by the enormous dance floor & the elegant grand staircase that made this two-level ballroom so beautiful. This venue is part of the Scottish Rite theater and mansion. In the mansion area is a bridal suite where your bridal party is able to gather before the reception. The Scottish Rite theater is absolutely beautiful, & even though there was an event going on there the night of our wedding, we didn’t hear anything. There were incredible photo opportunities from the large tree right out front, to knight park just down the road, to inside the ballroom itself.
Heather at the ballroom was more than willing to take the time to walk you through any question you might have from the caterers available to the champagne options. They also had a ton of additions available to enhance your evening. We chose to use their coffee & cordial bar as well as their uplighting and it was very well received.
The night of the wedding couldn’t have gone better. Through the help of Summit Catering, the ballroom had been transformed into a stunning site with blue uplighting & other accents that tied the whole room together. Cocktail hour took place on the second floor & when they pulled the curtains back so our guests could watch my husband and I have our first dance in the middle of the dance floor below, the murmurs of amazement filled the room. The large bar downstairs was more than adequately staffed & there was never a long line for drinks, and that was not for lack of plentiful drinking all around. I only received compliments on how elegant & outstanding the night was and would suggest this venue for anyone looking to get married in NJ. I fell in love with it, & I am sure you will too!
The venue is one of the most important peices of the wedding. I searched ALL over South Jersey from the shore to winerys to giant wedding-factory ballrooms. I knew I wanted something very “Gone With the WInd” — something timeless, elegant, and OF COURSE a GIANT sweeping staircase for my big entrance! I found EVERYTHING and more when I entered the Collingswood Grand Ballroom. I nearly cried the moment I walked in for the tour — I just knew. The staff are amazing and are there to answer all of your questions. Aside from the venue being a “wow factor” the wedding pictures turned out absolutely gorgeous both inside and outside of the venue. I highly recommend!!
Simple and elegant, the ballroom is prefect for a fancy work event or a wedding. Since I was a guest I did not look around very much but when I walked in I thought it was charming. I hope I can return again to give up more information.
I absolutely loved our wedding venue at the Collingswood Grand Ballroom. The space was large enough to accommodate the large number of guests I had, without feeling too crowded. The upstairs cocktail hour and the stairs we made our grand entrance on were what sold us on the space. We got married outside on the grass under the big tree and it was perfect. The planning process was painless and Heather and the rest of the staff were always there to quickly respond to any inquiries I had. And most importantly, this venue was affordable. Thank you for a wonderful experience!
Once I saw the staircase on the website, I called to make an appointment to see the Ballroom. Once I saw the staircase myself I knew that was where I wanted to have my reception. In addition to the absolutely beautiful staircase, the Ballroom has so much character and was absolutely perfect for us. Heather and the staff at the Ballroom were so helpful and helped to make sure that it was the perfect day
We got married here in June. They provided such a unique experience for us! Throughout the planning process, Heather was great and answered all questions and concerns promptly. On the day of, they took such great care of us! We had our ceremony here as well. We decided to have the ceremony under the beautiful oak tree. The day of, it looked as if rain was coming. They were so flexible and were ready to make any necessary changes (15 minutes before the guests were due to arrive!). The rain held out and everything worked out great. We enjoyed every moment of our day–they took care of everything. Heather and Sam had everything mapped out and everything went so well. We provided a lot of homemade decor, and they organized it so beautifully!
I absolutely fell in love with the Collingswood Ballroom from the moment I stepped into it. I knew it had to be our venue. The staff headed by Heather were incredibly accommodating and friendly. Our guests were awed by the gorgeous setting of the ballroom and how spacious it was. The staircase was really the show stopping piece in the room. If you are looking for something not cookie cutter, this is your venue.

I worked with Heather from day one and she was absolutely fabulous to work with. She was willing to meet with me as many times as we needed to get all the planning done. The Collingswood is beautiful. All of our guests were in awe of the venue. It has so much history. The design and detail put into the ballroom is great. We couldn’t have been happier.

The ballroom felt dramatic yet cozy with the giant 2 story ballroom and grand staircase. Cocktail hour took place upstairs, dinner downstairs. We had 180+ guests in this large space, and yet it still felt intimate. And the mansion in front, which becomes the bridal sweet, was amazing for photos.

Absolutely Amazing! This site is absolutely gorgeous – make sure you visit it before you brush it off! Everyone who came to the wedding was absolutely blown away by the place – the soaring ceilings, the beautiful staircase, the lush grounds far exceeded my expectations. The staff were wonderful – Heather didn’t steer me wrong from the first moment my mom and I stepped in the place, and the catering company worked very closely with the Ballroom to bring everything together. Ample parking, handicapped accessible, my family from Philly were amazed at how close the location was to them (20 minute drive – there were definitely no complaints!). There were a few tears during the spotlight dance, it was the only venue that I had visited that had such a unique first dance! I can’t say it enough – definitely a place to consider, I’ve been recommending it to everyone!

It’s Grand!! The first time I stepped into the ballroom, I fell in love with the place right away so I did not bother to check another place. It’s a perfect place for my wedding! The staircase, two levels, huge dance floor, nice and clean bathroom, nice grounds for pictures.
Wonderful!! My husband and I were married at the Collingswood Grand Ballroom in July 2013. We used Summit catering and could not have been happier. Heather, from the ballroom, was great! She was there for everything and helped answer my questions along the way. The ballroom is a very beautiful place and does not require a lot of extra decoration. I would recommend the ballroom to others!

Amazing! I had my wedding reception at the Ballroom on May 25, 2013- I couldn’t have been happier with EVERYTHING! The ballroom is beautiful, it comfortably held my 275 guests and 11 person band. The dance floor is large enough for everyone to be up and dancing without dancing on top of each other. The ballroom coordinator, Heather is such a pleasure to work with- she was so accommodating to all my requests and she never made me feel like I was bothering her. She and Christina from Vitarelli’s Catering work so well together and made my wedding flawless and the best day of my life. I highly recommend the Ballroom and Vitarelli’s catering.

Just got married at the Collingswood ballroom this past Friday and I could not wait to write a review… it could not have been more perfect!!!! I was a perfectionist with my planning and the staff met and surpassed every expectation!! A really big thank you to Heather, my event coordinator, she kept me cool calm and collected and was always two steps ahead of every need I had during the planning process. We are still getting phone calls from guests telling us our venue was one of the most impressive and beautiful they’ve been to (and some are pretty tough critics!). I would recommend this building and heather to anyone who wants a perfect wedding!
