Best Day Ever

We had our wedding on April 15, 2023 and our experience at Above was nothing but amazing. Our event planner Alessandra was always responsive with all of our questions whenever we had them and did everything to accommodate us and help us plan a perfect wedding. The venue space was beautiful and even though we needed to have our ceremony in the ballroom due to the weather it was fully transformed by the time our reception came along. Our guests keep raving about cocktail hour and the food and thought everything looked so beautiful!! We truly had an amazing experience and will forever look back on our wedding day with beautiful memories. Our maitre’d Tom was wonderful and my bridal attendant Jackie never left my side and was so helpful with coordinating our day. Would highly recommend this venue especially if you are looking for an all inclusive one - ceremony space, reception, and hotel all in one place. The owners of the venue, the Nicotras, even visited us during our rehearsal dinner and our wedding to make sure everything was going well and wish us the best and congratulated us. Truly felt taken care of - the entire staff was wonderful.

A Perfect Wedding Weekend

It’s hard to even summarize how perfect working with Above was. A special shout out to Alessandra, Jackie and Tom and everyone else who helped behind the scenes to coordinate our perfect wedding day. They rolled with every punch we threw their way and ultimately made things as stress free as you can get with a wedding. The all-inclusiveness of the Above package was seriously the best way to go for my high-strung self. Every little thing was taken care of, even down to the cake. The actual venue itself is gorgeous, balcony views stunning and we were blessed with perfect weather. We even had our ceremony outdoors at the Trellis which looked like something out of a fairy tale! 1000 out of 1000 would recommend

The most breathtaking, perfect, loving venue

This venue was beyond magical. From planner (Alessandra) to bridal attendant (Jackie) to the maitre’d (Tom)…we have never felt more special & loved. The rooftop and cocktail hour was filled with delicious dishes all our family and friends raved about, and the ballroom was breathtaking. The table-side service was impeccable! It was the most wonderful day my husband and I could have ever hoped for. Everything went smoothly & it was a wedding for the books! Xoxoxoox hope to go back soon for another person’s wedding! Thank you to the amazing staff at ABOVE!
