About the Estate at Eagle Lake

Located in Chesterfield, NJ, this historic garden venue is home to an underground bunker, a gorgeous lake and multiple outdoor spots. Only open from the third weekend in April to the second weekend in November, this lakeside hot spot is a coveted wedding venue. Along with the Estate itself, this property is comprised of a 6-acre lake and 25 acres of woodlands. The Estate at Eagle Lake wedding photos feature countless couples riding off into the sunset at this amazing venue.

History Hot Spot

For most of the estate’s history, the estate itself was known as “The Bunker” by locals, and for good reason. Dating back to the 1970’s, Thomas Cousins etched out a special hillside spot for him to build his bunker into. The bunker included a courtyard with a secret tunnel, a radio tower, a green house, dog kennels and so much more. An estate home was supposed to be built across the lake on the hill, but unfortunately the owner passed away from a heart attack before it was ever built.

From that point on, the estate was actually abandoned until a young entrepreneur saw the property for sale and saw all that it could be!  A white sand beach was created by the lakeside. A perennial garden was erected in replace of the weedy fields. The estate was being resurrected, and people certainly noticed.

After 18 years, the property was sold again, and the Estate at Eagle Lake was officially completed. It opened its doors to the public for events such as weddings, Fourth of July celebrations, and private lakeside parties. It’s no surprise that the rich history of this property is one of the many things that makes it so enticing to rent out. The rest went down in history!

Lakeside ‘I Do’s’

When it comes to the perfect garden wedding, an enchanting lakeside wedding paradise awaits you! With an eye for detail, this amazing venue will help create the wedding of your dreams. The Estate at Eagle Lake wedding photos show off the amazing outdoor landscape from the very beginning.

Picture this… your day starts early on with time to take a breather and go exploring before guests are anxious to see you.  Of course, you’ll want to post for those early on Estate at Eagle Lake wedding photos, too! When you are all dressed up and ready to go, you enter the outdoor Eagle Lake Amphitheater where your guests are anticipating your special vows and the kiss to seal the deal! This waterfront ceremony space features classic white chairs for loved ones to fill. Oh, and we can’t forget to mention how every seat in the house has a perfect lake view!

Next, its finally time for cocktails! Couples can choose between a variety of spots (like the Koi and Sky Garden) on the property to host their cocktail hour. Sounds fancy, right?! This quaint spot is perfect for sipping on refreshing drinks and light appetizers just before indulging on an amazing meal!

The wedding party will then arrive at its final destination…the tented banquette area all set up for a night of celebration! Known as the Bunker Room, the space is a crowd-pleaser all in its own right, comfortably accommodating up to 180 guests. The simple charm of the ceiling draping is accompanied by stunning chandeliers. A couple can choose a table type (circular or rectangle) as well as centerpieces used. This 3000-square foot area is sure to leave everyone in a dancing mood!

Keeping The Love ‘Reel’ By the Lake!

You’re on lake time! When a couple decides to share their lakeside ‘I Do’s’ here, they are renting out the property for the entire day. Open 8 am to 11 pm, couples can utilize the vast property from start to finish. Whether it be catching rays on the white sand lakeside beach, or simply enjoying a fire pit, couples have full use of the incredible amenities!

One of our couples, Arjeta and Benjamin, took advantage of the Estate for picturesque backgrounds for their photos. The blue skies and breathtaking natural scenery made a perfect background for their magical first look. Afterward, the happy couple posed together for some candid. The bright and sunny weather with green scenery really lit up their photos! This Estate at Eagle Lake wedding photography turned out splendidly thanks to our talented photography team. 

Wedding Wow’s

Wowing your guests is what this estate does best! Another share-worthy couple that really ‘wow-ed’ us was Samaya and Christopher. After loving each other for so long Samaya and Christopher were finally able to have the ceremony that they wanted. The beautiful bride and dashing groom had an unforgettable outdoor ceremony on the most perfect summer day. Beautiful pictures of the newlyweds with the backdrop of the lake and greenery were taken by our talented photographers as they tied the knot! You definitely do not want to miss reading their full story! 

Mollie and Christopher had a beautiful outdoor wedding! The sweet couple exchanged love letters privately before the first look; how romantic! The groom looked dashing in his navy-blue suit. He was all smiles waiting for his bride by the picturesque lake! As he turned around, Christopher finally got to see his beautiful bride and couldn’t help but kiss her. Afterwards, These Estate at Eagle Lake wedding photos captured the beautiful moments as these two met at the altar, exchanged vows, and were officially pronounced husband and wife!  This wedding was stunning and had guests in awe (and us, too!) of both the couple and the venue.
