On October 27, 2017 a fairy tale wedding came true for my husband and I at the Above, located in the Hilton Garden Inn, Staten Island.
The day was perfect from the beginning to the end because of the professionalism shown by all. Especially my event planner Sue Vaiana for her impeccable service. From our first meeting to my reception, she made all my wishes come true.
When my guests arrived they were greeted with flutes filled with champagne and an escorted ride up the elevator to our ceremony. The ambience was perfect, the room was filled with flowers, candle light and a view of a perfect sunset. Vows were exchanged and everything felt magical.
Off to the cocktail hour on the rooftop. The hors d’oeuvres and cocktails kept flowing. Some guests even ventured outside to sit by the fire and enjoy the breathtaking view.
The reception was amazing, out maitre’d, Jeff, did not miss a beat and everything went as planned. Delicious food prepared by Chef Matt, endless drinks and a perfect ending with a gorgeous topsy turvy cake.
I would especially like to thank the owners, Mr. & Mrs. Nicotra for attending my wedding. They are always a visible presence at every affair to ensure their guests are having a good time. Mr. & Mrs. Nicotra, you definitely made this bride and groom feel very special!

Ahhh, where to begin.. My husband and I recently celebrated our 1 year wedding anniversary!! Yay US =)

Our wedding took place at Above on September 3rd, 2017 and it was beyong our wildest expectations. We had a fairytale wedding of our dreams with the help of the Above/Hilton staff members.

Our wedding coordinator Sue was truly a godsend. She was so wonderful - helpful, attentive, knowledgeable and funny! Sue made our wedding dreams come true with her thoughful suggestions and feedback. She was so easily reachable via phone, email and in person. She walked us through everything and made sure that we were 10000% with all of our decisions. She worked with us every step of the way and we continue to stay in touch because we love her! We are absolutely certain that you will be in wonderful hands with her (& everyone who works at Above/Hilton). The service at Above and the Hilton was exceptional. Everyone there was so helpful, attentive and really made it about the bride and groom.

Now for our venue, ABOVE IS STUNNING! It is modern, beautiful, clean and perfect! We loved everything.. from the outdoor ceremony space, to the cocktail hour space, to the reception space which was spectacular. The food, ohhh the food - we could not get enough of our cocktail hour food. We were not one of those couples that did not eat. We chowed down because we knew it would be amazing! (Sue had amazing suggestions for the menu and we trusted her 100%!!)

A huge thank you for everyone at Above who made our day absolutely unforgettable. We cannot stop raving and raging about Above and our experience there. We highly recommend Above Rooftop to everyone and know that you will love it just as much as we did!! =D
