    Dreamy NYC wedding

    This venue will always hold a special place in our hearts. My husband and I first met at this hotel; we then celebrated our engagement weekend here; and we ultimately chose it as our wedding venue. It’s the perfect location right next to Central Park and pure luxury. Although our main points of contact changed a fair bit amidst COVID challenges, everyone we worked with was responsive and professional. Leading up to the wedding, Rachel and Sarah were our go-to contacts. They helped us finalize all of the little details and accommodated some special requests related to our menu. Speaking of the menu, the food was absolutely delicious. Our guests are still talking about how awesome everything was from the unique stations and passed hors d’oeuvres at the cocktail hour, to the fancy poached pear salad, to the mouthwatering filet and potato gratin, to the lemon meringue tart and red velvet cake, to the fun mini desserts, and finally the mini sliders and fries they grabbed on their way out at the end of the night. No one left hungry and the food was simply delicious – certainly not “wedding food” but akin to fine dining. We also don’t want to leave out how fantastic the Central Park Suite Terrace is – if you’re contemplating whether or not to splurge on this, this is your sign to just do it. The bridal party got ready in the suite (some feedback: all of the food left over from the day was thrown out; we would have liked to store the leftovers in the fridge), and my husband and I had our first look on the terrace overseeing Central Park on a gorgeous day. It doesn’t get much better than that. It was the perfect day and far exceeded our expectations. We wish we could do it all over again!

    Our wedding at the Essex House was absolutely incredible - the whole night flowed perfectly and Claudia (our event planner) and her team were absolutely amazing. We reserved our wedding here on short notice (~ 3 months in advance) after we found out that the Ritz Carlton Battery Park where we originally had our wedding scheduled had been taken over by a new hotel chain. The transition between the two venues was absolutely seamless - Claudia made sure to catch up on all of our details very quickly and did such a great job making the venue change a stress-free process for us. We have received so many compliments from our guests on our wedding here and saying how perfect and beautiful the venue was. I would very highly recommend the JW for your wedding!!
