NJ COVID: New Jersey wedding venues are preparing for increased indoor capacity

VOORHEES, New Jersey (WPVI) – Several South Jersey wedding venues look forward to hosting more guests as Governor Phil Murphy’s Executive Order increases indoor capacity to 35% for up to 150 people.

Gina Vitale, a newlywed from Cherry Hill, described her wedding process as an emotional roller coaster ride during the pandemic. She said she was afraid she might have to postpone her date further.

She tied the knot of the love of her life, Tom, on March 6th, months after her original date.

She also had to postpone her wedding at some point because several members had COVID 19. The couple had a simple ceremony in the mansion on Main Street in Voorhees, but they look forward to what the new ease of restrictions will bring to their future reception in August.

“We’re excited that some of our family members can fly in from out of state and just get together and celebrate a happy moment after going through last year,” said Vitale.

The mansion on Main Street said even though the new restrictions take place on Friday, more and more couples have asked for dates and people who postponed their original plans have finally set a new date.

Jon Rubin with The Mansion on Main Street is excited about the future.

“The couples are thrilled. The stress is gone for them. They come here, we can host their event. It feels like the old days,” said Rubin.

Rubin says there is a lot of space in the venue and they will continue to do contact tracing.
