Create a Dramatic Entry at your Ellis Island Wedding or Special Event

How glam is this? Your guests will be wowed at this Harry Potter-esque, magical candlelit entrance to your Ellis Island wedding or special celebration, setting the stage for an unforgettable event before they even get in the door.

Inside, the sea of candles can be arranged as well, since it’s a top wedding trend to coordinate your outdoor décor with your indoor décor elements. We’re welcoming so many wonderful wedding couples, bar and bat mitzvah groups and corporate parties right now, so contact us to start planning your magical party…and perhaps an entrance scene that out-does this one!

Ellis Island Weddings Start with a Special Greeting


The moment of arrival at your dream wedding here at Ellis Island creates the opportunity for a truly unique element of location style. Our ‘immigrant inspectors’ greeted guests, and stamped their passports for entry into the wedding site, just this past weekend.

The Statue of Liberty may not be open until July 4th, but we are here at Ellis Island, for your outdoor wedding, outdoor wedding cocktail party, outdoor engagement party, and as a spectacular way to welcome your out of town wedding guests to the city you love, with stunning scenery at your outdoor lobster bake on our beautiful grounds.

Visit to start planning your summer wedding here with us, your engagement party or any other special celebration that you want to start creatively and excitingly at Minute One!

A Packed Dance Floor at Every Ellis Island Wedding and Special Event

It’s a sign of a fabulous successful luxury wedding when the guest tables are empty and the dance floor is filled. While a spectacular wedding band or wedding deejay plays the songs that fill the dance floor, here at Ellis Island, it’s also the exciting, guest-thrilling atmosphere that puts wedding and special event guests in the mood to get out on that dance floor and celebrate.

So be assured that our stunning and sophisticated wedding venue, the uniqueness of our historic venue, the elegance of luxury wedding decor will thrill guests from Minute One, bringing them into an unforgettable experience in full celebration of your wedding. When guests feel they’re a part of a fabulous wedding scene, and with a state-of-the-art sound system playing your songlist in our fabulously acoustic venue, the energy level rises, and everyone’s in the swing of your grand wedding reception. Wedding guests have the time of their lives, and your wedding becomes one of the best, if not the best, weddings they’ve ever attended.
