The venue starts off wonderfully on its own, and it’s easily customizable to fit each couple’s personality. The team will help take care of everything from entertainment to flowers to music to photographers — and everything else in between. Antique Bar & Bakery will also help you create a customized menu featuring the very distinct menu we all know and love. Antique’s bread pudding with those amazing views would make for an unforgettable combo.

They still talk and remember every little detail about how amazing the food was.” explained Ellise.”The rustic and chic interior is the perfect location for a wedding party going for an organic yet elegant atmosphere. “My bridal assistant, Tammy, literally made sure I didn’t need a thing all night. She brought us food, bustled my dress, and even carried all my things during pictures, which was AMAZING!” she added. With indoor and outdoor areas that will truly wow your guests, this harborside venue creates a picture-perfect scene for a wedding.

The Hyatt | 2 Exchange Place

We love the multifaceted vibe at many of these waterside hotel locations. A hotel is the way to go for a couple with many traveling guests, and The Hyatt does not disappoint: it’s glamorous, welcoming, and oh so magnificent with windows leading out to a private patio overlooking downtown for guests to enjoy. Brides + grooms rave about the carefully crafted food on the cocktail and dinner menu. The Hyatt also offers options for an after-party and morning brunch, which is convenient to have all in the same place.  Couples can earn Hyatt points that can be used towards nights on the honeymoon by booking a wedding here.

Creative hub by day and lavish wedding venue by night, the grounds of the Liberty Science Center are perfect for the couple looking for something out of the ordinary. The grounds alone are just stunning, with the backyard right on the harbor of Liberty State Park. This truly contemporary space offers both indoor and outdoor options for ceremonies and receptions. Imagine tying the knot under the 18-foot Hoberman Sphere in the PSE&G Court or enjoy the totally customizable Governors Hall. We are in awe of the Observation Tower, which, as LSC describes, is a ”pyramid of glass set atop the Liberty Science Center’s 170-foot-high tower.” With 360-degree panoramic views of New York, The Statue of Liberty, and Ellis Island, this venue is unforgettable.
