We had a wedding planner, so we didn't really have to deal with NHM directly. When we did, the staff was helpful & friendly. The venue was beautiful. Our ceremony was on the rooftop with the skyline in the background, and our reception was elegant & modern - exactly our style. We used one room for a traditional Chinese tea ceremony and the foyer for our guest book/wedding favors.

Wonderful employees and space
Had a wedding cocktail party there on a friday night and everything was perfect. Every employee I met was helpful and friendly.
We had about 155 guests and the space was great for eating, mingling and dancing. With 3 walls of windows it never felt crowded or dark. It is a really special place to have an event in the city.

My wedding was on 6-9-18 with 200 people and everything was perfect. Jenna and Tiffany were very sweet and informative. We used the rooftop for our cocktail hour and everyone loved the view of the city. We were able to use any caterer for our dinner which was nice and were able to bring in vendors to decorate. All of our friends and family were impressed with the venue. It was absolutely beautiful.
