A wedding worthy of crossing the desks of Grace Ormonde and The Knot, Elissa Held Events found the most unique wedding location for a New York City couple that wanted a destination feel in their backyard of Manhattan. Bride & groom are both descended from Italian immigrants, making Ellis Island the perfect backdrop. Guests boarded ferry boats to enhance the destination experience. The Great Room was adorned with statues, as well as a working 12ft fountain to add European elegance.

The Knot Editors Pick for Best Weddings 2013: Ali and Dan’s Ellis Island Wedding

Ali and Dan’s October wedding celebration here on Ellis Island is The Knot Editors’ Pick for Best Weddings of 2013!

Elissa Held Events created a spectacular Ellis Island wedding for this gorgeous couple, with our historic NYC venue creating a dramatic atmosphere, making it one of the best weddings of the year.

Here are some details from The Knot:

Ali and Dan wanted a Tuscan feel for their decor drawing on both their cultural backgrounds while using a color palette of Oranges and Hot Pinks. Elissa Held Events brought in a 12 foot working fountain, potted Orange Trees and Statuaries to break up the enormous space of the Great Hall. Frost Lighting enhanced the space by splashing brightly colored lighting on the walls, ceiling and floors.
