Vendor’s We Love: Fiddler’s Elbow
One of the many wonderful perks of being a high-end wedding band, is that we get to play at some impressive and beautiful wedding venues. Fiddler’s Elbow Country Club is located in Bedminster, New Jersey and is home to spectacular service, outdoor accommodations, and a grand ballroom perfect for a dance party! They answered a few questions about weddings at their venue and working with our band.
Tell us a little about your venue and where you’re based.
Fiddler’s Elbow Estate is tucked away on nearly 1,000 acres in Bedminster, New Jersey. The Stone English Manor was built in the early 1900’s and held many gatherings & celebrations. In the mix of the property’s many lives, it was part of a peach orchard and later a dairy farm. After being purchased in 1965, one of our original owners, Ray Donovan, became the Secretary of Labor under the Reagan administration; so the festivities continued, including welcoming guests like Frank Sinatra. Today, Fiddler’s Elbow continues the tradition of holding elegant & timeless celebrations!
What is your favorite thing about working in weddings?
I’m going to borrow the quote of one of our brides for this one because there’s no better way to say it…”I LOVE love!” There are so many exciting things about a wedding. Two people found each other & connected amongst millions in the world, the couple is celebrating their love and the next chapter of their lives together, and then there’s two families joining to become one. It’s just so special! And if I can help make their day that much more special, than that’s the cherry on the sundae!
Can you share a memory about working with Sound Society Band?
When Sound Society was at Fiddler’s Elbow last, they had the crowd moving all night!! Absolutely fantastic wedding!
What is your most memorable experience working at Fiddler’s Elbow?
It’s hard to say what the most memorable moment would be at Fiddler’s. Honestly, every day and every wedding is an unforgettable memory. This may sound cheesy, but no two weddings are the same and each has such special memories I hold onto. First dances, parent dances, toasts…all get me teary-eyed. Fiddler’s is just an amazing place to be a part of!
