About Us

Crystal Springs Resort hosts intimate weddings, wedding receptions and multi-day events in any of four magnificent  venues. Conveniently located in the beautiful mountains of New Jersey’s Sussex Skylands, the resort’s venues Ballyowen, Black Bear, Minerals Hotel and Grand Cascades Lodge each offer a one-of-a-kind setting, with breathtaking mountain backdrops and scenic views.

Each resort wedding venue hosts only one wedding a day, guaranteeing that your special day is just for you. It’s also the ideal location for a weekend wedding or destination wedding without leaving the state.

The resort’s executive chef and his staff offer a complete selection of breakfast, break, lunch, cocktail reception and dinner menus. Theme party, picnic and custom menus are also available upon request. Their award-winning culinary team and seasoned professional wedding specialists are experts at hosting Indian, Jewish and LGBT weddings, and can assure couples and guests that your traditions are respected and celebrated as you desire.

Six championship golf courses, all located within a five-mile radius, are fantastic for bachelor parties and weekend wedding activities for your guests. Their award-winning spas feature mineral-based therapies, day packages and spa getaways ideal for calming pre-wedding nerves or gathering the bridesmaids the morning of the wedding or for a bachelorette party. And the resort’s recreation coordinators can help make your wedding memorable by providing group access to the resort’s numerous recreational amenities.
