A Glimpse Into The Past

The story of The Park Savoy Estate began in the late 1800s. It was once home to one of the early Florham Park families. An interesting fact is that the bones from the original house built in the 1870s still exist and serve as the bones for our current building. The house went through a few sales during the 1900s, with new owners enlarging the house and adding amenities like tennis courts and a rose garden.

A Time Of Splendor

As the 20th century progressed, The Park Savoy Estate entered one of its most illustrious chapters during the 1920s. When Prohibition started, the estate emerged as a popular speakeasy and was remodeled once again. It was a time when The Park Savoy Estate was not just a building, but an experience. For the next couple of decades, it served as a nightclub that attracted many legends and well-known people of the time, including Charles Lindbergh and Charles Edison.

The Transformation

The true transformation of The Park Savoy Estate began when it was purchased again in 1982. Alan Weinstein, a businessman and entrepreneur who had grown up in the area, had a vision to create a space that encapsulated the elegance of the venue’s history while incorporating modern luxuries. Renovations and restorations occurred to ensure that every corner of the estate exuded sophistication and grace.

Elegance Redefined

Now, The Park Savoy Estate is renowned as one of New Jersey’s most exquisite wedding venues. It was purchased in 2011 by long-time business partners Barry Maurillo, Joe Maurillo, and Vito Cucci. The trio had previously re-created well-known Nanina’s in the Park, another estate wedding venue, and dreamed of doing the same here. With its elegant ballrooms, breathtaking gardens, and impeccable service, the newly created Park Savoy Estate provides a perfect backdrop for any couple’s dream wedding. The attention to detail, from the lavish interiors to the manicured grounds, ensures an unforgettable experience for couples and their guests.
