Vendor Spotlight:  A Touch of Elegance

Posted on September 27, 2016

Every weekend we have some of the most incredible vendors come in and out of our venue.  It becomes hard to not develop strong relationships with these folks.  That being said, we have now strengthened our bond with one vendor in particular and gone a step further.  A Touch of Elegance has opened a secondary location right here onsite at The Palace at Somerset Park.  We are anticipating that this will only assist in making this already amazing company, even better!  Brides, from not only The Palace but all venues, can come in and meet with an event decor specialist.  We are beyond excited to see this company growing and expanding across New Jersey.  Their work speaks for itself.  Schedule your appointment right away.  Below are some pictures of the space they transformed to help couples get their creative juices flowing.     Known … Read more
