Your Wedding Cocktail Party Scenery on Ellis Island

As magnificent as Ellis Island’s historic venue is, one of the elements that sets us apart as a breathtaking site for weddings, bar and bat mitzvahs and other special celebration are the views from our outdoor wedding areas and outdoor cocktail party settings.

Your gests will be surrounded by beauty at every turn, from the dazzling colors of the sunset glittering golden on the water, the up-close amazement of the Statue of Liberty’s details, the phenomenal effects of the New York City skyline transforming before your guests’ eyes during sunset as an architectural wonder and in nighttime as a spectacular vista of city lights.

Those fabulous professionally-taken photographs of your wedding or party details, from the cocktail party buffet stations to the bar stocked with the finest wines, champagnes and liquors, become even more phenomenal when you have a view of the harbor, the State of Liberty and the New York City skyline behind them. Detail shots of your menu items, your cake, your flowers, and sparkling crystal decor items become extra-fabulous, and with our setting and scenery adding extra magic to your luxury wedding’s look — indoors or outside — you might just find your wedding chosen for inclusion in a bridal magazine or on a top wedding blog. The Ellis Island site and views can take each of your wedding design elements and add extra Wow Factor to impress your guests, and make your wedding memories last forever.

A big trend among our wedding, party and corporate gala hosts is to plan the cocktail party outdoors to capture our unique and amazing sunset scenery, with our top-tier service and event design making outdoor weddings and outdoor parties in NYC a magical scene, lit by Mother Nature…and then the party proceeds inside to our beautifully-set and beautifully-lit ballroom.

A wedding or party at Ellis Island is a feast for the eyes, a treat for all senses, and that’s just from our setting alone. Once you add in fablous wedding decor and exellent entertainment, your event is pure magic.
