    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!

    Cocktail Reception

    My husband and I had our cocktail reception at Above this past Friday and it was nothing short of amazing!!!! We had the absolute best time as well as all of our guests! Everyone is still talking about it. It was an all around great time. The food was perfect, the music, the atmosphere - AMAZING. Jennifer was absolutely amazing to work with since we started planning in 2020. She went above and beyond to make sure everything was on point for us the day of the wedding. I highly recommend Above for your next event and promise you’ll be in great hands with Jennifer. She’s knowledgeable and personable! You will not be disappointed. Thank you Jennifer for helping us plan our perfect reception!
