For over sixty years, the Marino family and staff have excelled at creating extraordinary weddings, celebrations, meetings, and special events in northern New Jersey.  The Birchwood Manor team embraces the strength of tradition, cultured by visionary leaders, and is committed to providing outstanding events for their guests.

Honoring the Past

Embracing the Future

In 1953, founder Michael Marino, Sr. purchased a sunny tract of land dappled with delicate white birch trees in Whippany, New Jersey. It became the site of the original White Birch Grove, where local clubs and organizations held their annual summer outings, which were popular in the 1950’s. To meet the demand for year-round events, a one-room facility was soon built and renamed Birchwood Manor.

In 1960, Michael Marino, Jr. initiated the expansion of the original structure. Through leadership, vision, and determination, the twenty acres were transformed into a full-service catering facility with grounds of unsurpassed beauty.

Today, the third and fourth generations of the Marino family continue the tradition of hospitality and personal service.

A Special Thank You

Working so closely with our clients, we naturally get to know them better and special relationships develop that extend from one event to the next, and sometimes even generation to generation. We’ve been in business a long time, and we take great pride in creating unforgettable experiences for each and every client who entrusts their events with us. We thank our amazing clients for keeping our business fresh and exciting, and for allowing us to be a part of their memorable occasions. We look forward to all future celebrations!
