Wedding ceremonies are a huge part of any wedding. When we first started hosting weddings at our venues (don't ask us when that is unless you want to make us feel old), it was quite common for couple to have ceremonies at a church or separate location, and then have the wedding party make their way to us.
These days, the trend has been reversing. It seems about 75% of our weddings at the Manhattan Penthouse have a ceremony preceding the evening's festivities. And we love it! With our Palladian windows and perfectly framed Empire State Building views, we can't imagine many places better for a first kiss. And we NEVER charge a fee to have a ceremony at our location, so it provides a great deal of value to the couples as well.
How about you? Did you have your ceremony at the venue? Or at the church? We'd love to hear from you! Check us out on Facebook here!
