How often in life do you get to throw an elegant, beautiful event for all of your favorite people? A wedding is the ultimate celebration, and it’s a fabulous excuse to go all out for a ceremony and reception you’ll remember and cherish forever. A Hilton Short Hills wedding is just that – a memorable, extravagant experience that your guests will be talking about and you’ll be fawning over for days, months, and years to come. Read on to find out more about what makes them special!
Hilton Short Hills is a beautiful venue within a large hotel. It has consistently been voted The Knot Best of Weddings several years in a row. After closing during the COVID-19 pandemic, it has been revitalized and reopened to host guests worldwide and unforgettable events!
With indoor and outdoor spaces, Hilton Short Hills is a premium venue for couples looking for an elegant place to host a wedding that meets every expectation and exceeds them.
Hilton Short Hills has over 15,000 square feet of event space available, accommodating up to 500 guests!
To start your wedding day, you and your party will get ready in a luxury suite with plenty of room to have hair and makeup done before your ceremony. Regarding your ceremony, you can exchange vows on the breathtaking rooftop beneath a wide New Jersey sky, or in the tented pavilion, with contemporary light fixtures and a beautiful domed ceiling. The Pavilion is also an excellent option for a romantic cocktail hour.
For your reception, you can also choose to celebrate on the Hilton Short Hills Balcony, with strung bistro lights hanging overhead and space for up to 300 guests to join in your first meal as a married couple. Decorate as rustic or glamorous as you choose; the venue’s red brick exterior will look beautiful with any décor.
If you prefer an indoor reception, the Grand Ballroom is an elegant, ornate space with beautiful ceilings, multiple crystal chandeliers, and other features. You can customize the space with colorful uplighting, centerpieces as grand or as minimalistic as you like, and a massive dance floor that can accommodate all of your friends and family (or at least up to 300 of them.)
Hilton Short Hills has beautiful locations for wedding photos, most notably its grand marble staircase with ornate railings and an art-deco wall behind it. We’ll also steal away to the outside and take photos against the hotel’s beautiful red brick and some of its lovely landscaping.
Furthermore, there are plenty of other ways to incorporate the architecture and décor to our advantage for unique photo backdrops. Let’s chat about how we can ensure we’re getting the kinds of wedding photos you want!
Regarding your Hilton Short Hills wedding, their certified team of event planners helps you ensure everything runs smoothly. They’ll help you navigate the included items in your wedding and ensure you know all of the upgrades (linens, lighting, chairs, etc.) available so you can make sure your wedding looks exactly how you want it to.
Their in-house catering, led by a highly skilled executive chef, will help you create a menu customized to your event. They can handle everything from hors d’oeuvres to plated entrees to exquisite wedding cakes. You’ll be able to relax knowing it’s all in-house.
When the party is winding down at the end of your wedding, and the guests leave the dance floor, they can conveniently head up to their rooms at Hilton Short Hills. It’s wonderful to know your guests will be safe after an evening of celebration and merriment. It makes it much easier to bring your out-of-town guests together for a morning-after brunch the following day!
Above all else, a Hilton Short Hills wedding is elegant, versatile, and easy. With the help you’ll receive from their team and the innate beauty of their event spaces, you can also bring your style and personality to throw an unforgettable wedding.
