The Statue of Liberty May Be Closed to Visitors, but Luxury Weddings are ON at Ellis Island Weddings and Events

While the news is abuzz about the Statue of Liberty being closed to visitors right now, with a 4th of July open date just announced, we can get you exclusive, advance VIP access to our Ellis Island wedding venue so that you’re among an elite circle of brides who get to have their weddings or rehearsal dinners in one of the most beautiful and historic venues in the world.

Right now, we’re welcoming spring 2013 brides and grooms to hold their outdoor weddings on Ellis Island, where your guests will be transported in grand style via private ferries to our island home, and welcomed by a lineup of our formally-attired staff offering flutes of champagne upon their arrival.

Your cocktail party on our sprawling lawns offers a stunning view of the New York City skyline and of course a closer view of the Statue of Liberty than anyone else gets right now. Our luxury wedding couples enjoy this visual treat and the majesty of the statue’s details in person and in their wedding photos. Picture your guests mingling on the Ellis Island lawn with your signature cocktails in hand, gathering at lavish seating areas featuring stylish couches and tables or in fabric-draped cabanas, stepping up to a neon-lit bar, delighting in gourmet cocktail party fare and taking amazing photos of their own in your sensational wedding location.

You might also plan a sit-down reception in the open-air, with the city lights providing an unparalleled view all around you, and a band and direct-from-Broadway performers adding energy and excitement to your first dance under the stars and the ensuing celebration. Including fireworks.

We didn’t let Superstorm Sandy ruin our wedding couples’ dreams. We ‘took it outside’ to offer our wedding finesse and fantasy setting to you right now, for your unforgettable wedding. Contact Ellis Island Weddings and Events to grab your spring 2013 wedding date and start planning all the details of your breathtaking outdoor wedding at our historic wedding locale.
