Outdoor weddings with a rustic feel are all the rage in today’s stylish and chic, upscale wedding celebrations, and at Ellis Island, we provide a scenic setting that surprises wedding guests in how perfectly it works with the reustic wedding theme. Just look at our trendy, family-style, rustic long tables set up on our grounds, with rustic wedding style lights strung overhead, providing a pretty scene for an outdoor wedding with both a city view and amazing visual perspective on our own architecture. And as you’ll see here, the red posts, chairs and table accents tie in with the rich reds of our Ellis Island building in the background for a lovely, complementary color scheme that ties the setting to the design elements.
As the sun sets over this rustic-chic outdoor wedding scene, the overhead lights will come on, adding extra celebratory flair in addition to the glowing moon, perhaps a night sky full of stars and the city lights in the distance.
It’s a big trend in weddings to create a rustic wedding scene in a locale that doesn’t normally evoke a rustic feel, but when the design elements are brought in, the scene just works. We welcome you to contact our team about your outdoor rustic wedding style here on Ellis Island, and we welcome your wedding coordinator to chat with us about your personalized picks for your elegant rustic luxury wedding.

Being in a one-‐of-a-kind venue such as Ellis Island, you automatically become inspired by its incredible history. The striking architectural elements tell the powerful story of a time when millions of immigrants passed through this great hall. Very few places hold such history in one building and it’s truly an honor to have designed for such an inspiring place!
Photo 2: Main Bar
Designed with the Ellis Island Registry Room in mind, this unique piece looks as though it could be a permanent fixture in the museum! The 16’ solid oak square bar is complete with a coordinating back bar which boasts authentic windowpanes and gold grommets. Antique luggage and decorative greenery are perfect elements to complete this look.
Photo 1: Spain Table
Buffet stations are always more delicious when the table has themed decor! This Spain-‐themed table was designed with a solid oak tabletop placed on authentic oversized barrels. Bright floral blooms in golden yellow and red are placed in hand-‐carved containers. The wrought-iron lanterns add a perfect touch of candlelight to the design.
