Intimate and somewhat affordable Winter Weather Wedding for foodies in Central NJ

Getting married in March 2016 in Central NJ (or surrounding areas) and not a clue where to do it. I come from a Foodie family...and our favorite way of eating is tapas style (not necessarily Spanish influenced but small bites idea). Not looking for a sit down dinner, more like appetizers and a few stations with GOOD yummy foods. Open bar is a must. I would love a quaint place for the winter time. I have been looking around but every place shows pictures of summer and outdoor affairs...not ideal for March unless you come from penguins or polar bear families which is not the case. I would appreciate any suggestion. Olde Mill sounds like a good option though not sure how good the food is and it's a bit pricey...not impossible though. The group would be between 50 to 70.

Arepas Cafe Long Island City

If you guys love arepas.....and are not affraid to cook....let me tell is the EASIEST things to do and super cheap. now....when it comes to the fillings...that's another story. I personally love my arepas more than any of the places around what i do is go, get some of my favorite fillings (carne esmechada) and cheeses pretty much you can get good ones in any latin market around town.
So....if you are curious how to make them...let me know and I'll give you a recipe.
I am soooo happy people in NY are getting into them though....I have them for breakfast every day when I'm in Venezuela with the best cheese in the PLANET! Sadly....that's impossible to get here....but still they are great no matter what you eat them with. My dad actually eats them with Gouda cheese....go figure! ;)

happy eats!
