Getting married on a rooftop is basically a New York fairy tale come true. Luckily, NYC is filled with some incredible perches that give you a bird’s eye view as you say “I do.” So, where should you go if you’re looking to plan a sky-high wedding? Check out five of our favorite wedding venues that boast incredible rooftops.
While you have access to an incredible indoor loft space, it’s all about the outdoor garden that’s situated on the corner of Fifth Avenue and 50th Street, 67 floors up. You’ll be saying your vows while Rockefeller Plaza, Radio City Music Hall, and St. Patrick’s Cathedral act as your backdrop. You can even host cocktail hour out on the terrace, which features stunning flowers and a reflecting pool. 620 Fifth Ave., 212-593-9499
Why settle for views of just a few landmarks when you can host a wedding where you see all of them? Tribeca Rooftop has an 18,000-square-foot roof deck that features 360-degree views of the entire Manhattan skyline. Whether you want to host your ceremony or cocktail hour in the space, your guests are sure to be stunned by the epic vistas. 2 Desbrosses St., 212-625-2600
No matter which space you’re in, everything from your ceremony to cocktail hour to reception, affords the opportunity to be outdoors. Each wedding space has its own balcony to allow the couple and guests to take advantage of the incredible Central Park vistas.
