Weddings, Celebrations & Events
The Grand Summit Hotel in Summit has been synonymous with world class service and food for over 145 years. It is a responsibility we take very seriously, and a commitment to the customer that has been a part of our DNA for generations.
While the look and feel of the modern day large social event has been altered, the desire for that celebration to be executed with the highest standards remains a must for the most discerning of tastes. Old world charm and elegance are staples of our product delivery. We have become huge fans of interactive food stations and unique bar set ups that set the ambiance for a casual mood in an elegant setting.
The Grand Summit Hotel’s signature wedding menu has become the Global Food Station Wedding Reception. The guest has a choice of hot and cold hors d’oeuvres to choose from to begin the event followed by a choice of captain’s stations. Signature stations offer an array of offerings sure to impress your family and friends.
The traditional wedding and Bar/Bat Mitzvah formats are alive and well. We cater to a fairly equal share of guests who want the new cocktail style wedding and those preferring the traditional format. The cocktail reception has always been among the most popular time of the event, and that has ushered in the desire to create that setting for the length of the event.
Food remains the centerpiece of The Grand Summit Hotel and the culinary leadership of Chef Brigham Smith has ensured a premium product for guests of the hotel. “When a guest wants to meet with me personally to discuss a custom menu, it is my pleasure to do so” offers Chef Smith. “Unlike a large corporate hotel where the chef is often distracted with corporate reporting, at The Grand Summit Hotel the customer is at the center of everything we do and I am happy to offer my guidance as it relates to menu selection.”
“Some of the most popular culinary choices we are seeing currently include our Salumi Station with Craft Beers, Artisan Crafted Cocktails and Vegetarian Stations and Carnival Style Desserts” offers Catering Manager Kathy Obropta. Kathy stays involved from planning through the close of the event to ensure a smooth flow to the program. “Things can change in the middle of an event depending on the host. It’s my job to make sure the event comes off flawlessly” adds Obropta.
Come see today why The Grand Summit Hotel remains the venue of choice in North Jersey.
