If food, sophistication, and maybe a dazzling New York City skyline are atop your list of wedding must-haves, then look no further than Maritime Parc in Jersey City, NJ. It’s a contemporary ballroom venue that can accommodate weddings from the most stylish and intimate to the grandest and most extravagant. Plus, with an award-winning chef, you and your guests will feast like royalty all night long while looking out at panoramic views of the Hudson River, the Statue of Liberty, and the Manhattan skyline. Sound intriguing? Keep reading to discover more about what makes a Maritime Parc wedding a fabulous occasion!
One of the best parts about Maritime Parc is its beautiful seaside location, right beside boats in the harbor and with the water lapping against the shore. Chef-Owner Chris Siversen, who has cooked for celebrities and presidents, created Maritime Parc as a restaurant that captures the spirit of the sea, where guests can sit on the outdoor patio and enjoy the open air and exquisite food and drinks. The restaurant itself also shares magnificent views of the Hudson and other iconic New York landmarks, and it’s only a 7-minute ferry ride from downtown NYC!
Maritime Parc has two beautiful event spaces that accommodate up to 350 guests. The Aviary Room on the 3rd floor has a beautiful 22-foot vaulted exposed beam ceiling for an extra airy feel, and on the 2nd floor is the Sky Room, which is uniquely modern in its design and features a ceiling designed to be a contemporary play on clouds with ceiling panels gently illuminated. Each room features a wraparound outdoor terrace so you and your guests can get a little bit closer to the breathtaking views. You may reserve one room or both, depending on the size of your guest list.
The Aviary and Sky Room are beautiful options for ceremonies and receptions, with big windows that bring the views indoors. If you have a larger guest list, a room flip may be needed to accommodate both a ceremony and a reception, but smaller weddings can easily and comfortably fit a ceremony in one space and a reception in the other.
On both floors are VIP rooms that are perfect for preparing for your wedding day and beautiful getting-ready photos with some of the closest people in your lives.
There are so many ways to use Maritime Parc for gorgeous wedding photos. We can walk along the marina and use the boats and docks as coastal backdrops. Then, we’ll find the perfect spot for romantic portraits featuring the Manhattan skyline in the background for epic photos that capture the city’s spirit (even more so after dark when everything lights up against the night sky!)
Maritime Parc also has beautiful architectural features like a gorgeous dramatic staircase (great for full-body dress shots) and contemporary light fixtures. You’ll love your wedding album with Maritime Parc as your venue because there is so much to play with.
Aside from the venue’s spectacular beauty and ideal location, its cuisine also sets it apart from other spaces. You’ll have a completely customized menu designed to suit your and your partner’s tastes for an unforgettable meal. Plus, you can add bartending packages to your culinary package!
Maritime Parc’s accommodating staff will help you orchestrate every detail so your day is seamless and stress-free with services including planning assistance, setup, and cleanup. They also have plenty of equipment (like lighting and sound) that you can rent. Be sure to contact them for all the details about their amenities!
Maritime Parc is an absolutely beautiful location for a wedding that exudes sophistication, style, and seaside charm. If you’re searching for a venue with spectacular views, exquisite food, and plenty of style, we encourage you to consider a Maritime Parc wedding!!
