                               New Jersey’s Ultimate Wedding Resort
Vernon, NJ - Every woman dreams of her own special wedding day. At Crystal Springs, you can turn that special “day”
into a spectacular one, two or three-day wedding celebration at a world-class resort.

Crystal Springs Resort hosts wedding receptions in any of four magnificent indoor and two unique outdoor venues.
Conveniently located in the beautiful Sussex Skylands of northwest New Jersey, each of the Resort’s
Clubhouses…Ballyowen, Black Bear, Minerals Hotel & Spa and the Crystal Springs Country Club…are located within a 5-
mile radius. All Resort wedding venues host only one wedding each day, guaranteeing that your special day is truly that.

The newest wedding and catering venue is the amazing new 53,000 square foot Crystal Springs Country Club. Opened
in June 2002, Crystal Springs Country Club is perched atop the first fairway of the Resort’s Wild Turkey Golf Club and
boasts some of the most magnificent panoramic mountain views in the Tri-State Area. An impressive series of
interconnected natural pools with whirlpools, fountains and waterfalls surround the exterior, enhanced by a wedding
garden with lush landscaping, flower gardens and a bird sanctuary. Inside, this contemporary-design masterpiece
features Restaurant Latour – rated “Excellent” by the New York Times and awarded “4-Stars” by the Star Ledger, the
upscale Crystal Tavern and a variety of formal banquet rooms to accommodate up to 300 guests, including an open-air
rotunda overlooking the scenic Kittatinny and Pochuck Mountains.

Ballyowen Golf Club offers a most unique setting for your dream-come-true wedding, embodying the Celtic feel of Ireland.
Repeatedly named the #1 public golf course in New Jersey, Ballyowen encompasses 250 sprawling acres atop an
expansive plateau, surrounded by rolling farmland, craggy knolls, plunging quarries, tall wheat-yellow native grasses and
plush green golf course fairways. The magnificent stone Clubhouse and outdoor Pavilion embody an “old world” design,
offering kaleidoscopic mountain views and breathtaking sunsets. Begin with a magical outdoor ceremony, and add
accompaniment by the bagpiper, dressed in full regalia. Follow with your cocktail hour in the Ballyowen Clubhouse,
decorated in dark woods and featuring a cathedral ceiling, circular bar and large stone fireplace. The open-air Pavilion
accommodates up to 180 guests for your reception, and overlooks the gently rolling fairways of Ballyowen Golf Club and
the mountains beyond.

Black Bear Golf Club can host the wedding reception of your dreams at an amazingly affordable price, offering a scenic
golf course location with first-class services and amenities. The 12,000 square foot Black Bear Clubhouse features the
Bear Den Grille, the elegant Black Bear Ballroom and spacious outdoor veranda, all of which provide guests with a
spectacular panoramic view overlooking Black Bear Golf Club and the Hamburg Mountain Range. Both indoor and
outdoor cocktail hours are available and a beautifully landscaped gazebo is perfect for an outdoor ceremony. The
spacious Black Bear Ballroom accommodates up to 180 guests, with one entire wall of windows overlooking the golf
course and surrounding mountains. Wedding menus are comprehensive and reasonably priced, including a 4-hour open
bar, cocktail hour with hot and cold hors d'oeuvres, champagne toast, buffet dinner and wedding cake, starting at $60 per
