What’s more iconic than having Lady Liberty witness your ceremony?
Want your guests transported to your NYC wedding a la the Clooneys (think private boat ride, minus the Venetian flair)? Then consider Ellis Island, where the only way to reach your destination is by boat, but with guests on a private one, they’ll feel more like royalty than perhaps, your ancestors that came over for their shot at the American Dream.
Whether coming from Battery Park in NYC or Liberty State Park in NJ, the ride is under 15 minutes and timed with the sunset. As guests see the Statue of Liberty and arrive at Ellis Island, the scene is set for a memorable experience. Location options range from the museum ballroom to outdoor areas, making this the perfect venue for a variety of weddings.
There is an in-house caterer, but others are allowed upon permission of the in house caterer, Evelyn Hill, Inc. Keep in mind, as with much of this venue, a management fee will be charged based on the event specifications and impact on the Islands.
While this venue is certainly for the well-heeled, it is not only historic but destined to be memorable, unique and as special as the couple that chooses to get married there.
Ellis Island captures the essence of New York City – its history, its population, its story.—Loulie Walker, Loulie Walker Events
