Learn about Newark
Newark, New Jersey was one of the first cities to be settled by Europeans, and has grown to become the largest city in its state. Due to its long history, Newark contains many historic buildings, and couples looking for stately, ornate venues that tell a unique story will surely find them - most of them in the historic Central Ward. Something unique about Newark is its heavy sprinkling of cherry trees found throughout the city - a wedding in the Spring is absolutely filled with the pink and white blooms of these lovely trees. No matter the season, Newark is an ideal location for a family gathering, if only for the fact that it’s a central stop on many transportation routes, offering a convenient and inexpensive destination for any wedding guests flying in from out of town. While visiting, relatives can tour several of the old forts that still remain as historical landmarks, as well as sample a wide variety of international cuisine encouraged by the activity in Newark’s busy port.
