A look at one of the gorgeous, glam events held here at Ellis Island, designed by Fourth Wall Events. To create a ‘room’ within our expansive historic venue, the Fourth Wall Events team created wispy paneled ‘walls’ made even more gorgeous by specialty lighting. So if you have a smaller guest list, you don’t have to worry about your party looking lost in our lofty space. You and your wedding or special events design team can personalize the Ellis Island Registry Room to fit your event’s size and scope.
Of course, you can set off your dining area in one half of the Registry Room, and have your cocktail party with a custom-designed bar in the other half, or set up your space to provide seating in one section, and a dance floor and entertainment area in the other. It’s always a plus to have so much space to work with, to design in your own way, and we thank Fourth Wall Events for sharing this Ellis Island event image with us!
With a ballroom as vast as our landmark venue’s, you have the ability to create far more beautiful and brilliant creativity with your guest tables than many other wedding ballrooms provide. On this blog, you’ve seen beautiful arrangements of all-round or all-long tables, and now we bring you a dazzling look at a mix of both round and long tables. Having the two different table styles allows you tremendous design options when it comes to table linens — colors, shimmer, chic layers and runners — and especially the arrangements of florals on your wedding or event guests’ tables. Round tables provide a natural setting for a tall, dramatic floral arrangement that may reach up toward our lofty and architectural ceiling. Or, you might choose the stylish and trendy centerpiece design of all low-set florals with multiple sizes of pillar candles in the middle.
For your long tables, you get the chance to blend tall floral centerpieces with low-set ones, or create a lavish lineup of blooms in dozens of glass vases, surrounded by flickering white or colored votives.
Our team is ready to help you and your event designer create the perfect, one-of-a-kind luxury tablescapes for your elaborate wedding or special event, including the magic of having the best of both worlds in table design and layout. Even your chaircovers can be different at your round tables than they are at your long tables, with all guests happily mixed with friends and family, always with an unobstructed view of you, the entertainment and the beauty of our historic wedding venue and all of its decor-enhancing beauty.
If you think Ellis Island Weddings can only be large and lavish, with hundreds of guests — since our amazing landmark venue is so vast — think again. We host weddings and special events for groups as small as 25 people, delivering the same elite service as we do to our grander events. With a smaller wedding group, you have the advantage of using some of our most fascinating rooms and areas, such as the space show here, set to dinner perfection with beautiful luxury tablescapes and lovely lighting effects. You can also book our upstairs rooms, or have your tables arranged by the balcony rails, overlooking the grand hall with its floor illuminated with specialty lighting, such as your wedding monogram, initials, even a pattern to match the lace of your gown or the design of your invitations. And of course, your wedding or special event setting can be dramatically and gorgeously set in our grand hall, with your one long table or small cluster of guest tables spotlit in the center of the space.
