About The Above Weddings Venue

Above Weddings is a beautiful, contemporary event space connected to the Hilton Garden Inn. Your guests will take a private elevator directly up to the ballroom, the only rooftop ballroom in all of Staten Island. This chic venue offers plenty of sophistication and modern style while also having the added convenience of being attached to a comfortable hotel, meaning your guests won’t have to travel following your celebrations to stay nearby.

Details of the Grounds

Your celebration is always the main event on your wedding day here. Their beautiful bridal suites are the perfect place to get ready for your ceremony with your closest friends and family. You’ll have plenty of room for hair and makeup artists, well-lit mirrors, and a mannequin to keep attire sleek and unwrinkled for the main event. (As a bonus, they also provide the couple with a complimentary suite on their wedding night to enjoy some much-needed rest and relaxation following the celebrations.) 

While many couples host their ceremony offsite in a nearby church or other venue, Above Weddings can accommodate a beautiful vow exchange! Whether set up on their outdoor terrace or even in the ballroom with a simple room flip executed during cocktail hour, you can make the space work best for you and your vision.

Cocktail hour can occur around the rooftop bar, with modern décor and beautiful views. Their in-house mixologists will serve signature handcrafted cocktails as your guests enjoy amenities like outdoor cabanas and fire pits. 

Then, for your reception, gather everyone into the Above Ballroom, an exquisite space with 20-foot high floor-to-ceiling windows showcasing panoramic views of the New York City skyline. Dazzling light fixtures and a spacious dance floor enhance the venue with elegance and sophistication, creating a perfect space for a modern, contemporary wedding.

Photography Opportunities

The venue’s unique, modern design features are beautiful in wedding photography. Before your guests enter your reception, we’ll take some time to capture gorgeous photos featuring beautiful light fixtures, accent walls, and artwork. The rooftop terrace is lovely for incorporating some of the views or catching a few pictures of the two of you curled up by the fire pit. There are also a few sculpture installations around the venue, including a large red “LOVE” statue that makes for a beautiful signature wedding portrait.
