More Details From Ali and Dan’s Ellis Island Wedding

New York | Ellis Island Wedding | Elissa Held Events

When we featured Ali and Dan’s spectacular Ellis Island wedding, as chosen by The Knot as one of their best weddings of 2013, you asked for more, and the fabulous Elissa Held Events’ Pinterest page gives you even more highlights of this gorgeous, luxury wedding! Here’s the page description:

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 top wedding trends come alive beautifully in Ellis Island’s historic venue. Our beautiful brick walls inside and out are perfect for rustic elegant weddings that are so big on Pinterest and so in demand for weddings this year and next. You don’t have to be in a barn to have a rustic glam wedding…just look at how rustic chic decor elements stand out in our glass and steel entryway with our brick facade as a stunning backdrop, and how rustic-inspired floral table decor transforms our Registry Room into a grand ballroom filled with soft and romantic rustic elegance touches.

And of course, our outdoor weddings set on our sprawling grounds are perfect for tented or open-air weddings and celebrations with a rustic elegance feel. Imagine those mason jars with soft, romantic, delicate flowers everywhere from your guest tables to display tables, and florals decorating the tent and placed on outdoor lounge-style tables where guests can mingle, sip champagne and enjoy the fantastic views of the city skyline. It’s a fabulous merging of natural beauty and grand architecture, which also plays into the popular Great Gatsby style of wedding that’s so hot on Pinterest.

We have some dates still available for May and June outdoor tented weddings and parties, so contact us at Ellis Island weddings to bring those rustic and Gatsby wedding inspirations to life for an unforgettable and beautiful day!
