When it comes to elegance and sophistication, it’s hard to resist the allure of a city skyline. That said, there are few skylines as iconic as Manhattan’s. The Atelier Ballroom wedding venue in Jersey City is a gorgeous, chic location with breathtaking views of the Manhattan skyline and the Hudson River. With a spacious ballroom and a riverfront patio, it’s a fabulous venue for a big celebration to impress. Keep reading to discover more about this unique spot!
The Atelier Ballroom is a simultaneously contemporary and sophisticated space while also serving as a beautiful canvas for you to bring your unique vision for your wedding to life. The space can be as elegant or as modern as you dream it to be, and the Atelier Ballroom team will help you get to know the space so you can familiarize yourself with all the possibilities it holds.
Begin your wedding day preparing in one of their suites, equipped with plenty of space for your entire wedding party to gather, full-length mirrors perfect for last-minute checks, and full gown portraits.
Walking out of the suites, you’ll step out onto the landing of a staircase that leads you down into the ballroom. It’s perfect for a cocktail hour touch-up and a grand reentrance into your reception.
The Atelier Ballroom is an exquisite space to host a wedding, with floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the Hudson River and the Manhattan skyline. It has unique, contemporary light fixtures that reflect in the panes of the windows for a little extra sparkle and high ceilings that make you feel even more immersed in the skyline just beyond the river. Plus, there’s plenty of room for up to 200 people, so you won’t have to trim your guest list *too* dramatically.
The room leads out onto a beautiful patio that gets you closer to the view and can be a perfect spot for an outdoor ceremony with the skyline as your backdrop. Or, use it to host a cocktail hour where your guests can mingle with a signature cocktail in hand as the sun sets over Manhattan.
The incredible skyline views will definitely feature in your wedding photos because using such an exquisite view is irresistible. We’ll use the patio and outdoor space to get photos that exemplify the beauty of Manhattan and the Hudson River, some of the venue’s biggest draws. Indoors, we can use the beautiful staircase for wedding party photos or casual pictures of you and your partner draped over one another lovingly before the party starts.
When it’s time to hit the dance floor, your photos will be action-packed and reflect the beautiful space surrounding the celebration. Your photo albums will be chic, sophisticated, and with elegant urban vibes that you’ll love showing off to your friends and family (and, well, anyone else who will pause for a moment to look!)
When you have your wedding at The Atelier Ballroom, you’ll have access to both the spacious ballroom and the Riverfront Terrace (as well as the private Bride and Groom Suites, of course.) Plus, your wedding will include Chiavari chairs, tables, linens, and high-speed internet for all your entertainment needs. There is ample parking for your guests and valet service for an extra VIP touch.
Their catering is offered in-house, with seasonal dishes as artistic as delicious. They’ll create a customized wedding menu for you and your guests to enjoy, leaving everyone raving long after the cake has been cut and everyone is headed home for the night.
The Atelier Ballroom wedding venue is full of sophistication, elegance, and fun. It’s the perfect place for an epic celebration that will leave you and your guests with plenty of memories to treasure.
