    I would recommend this venue to EVERYONE. Lauren McCourt is so amazing! She answered each and every one of my emails, from big questions to very small ones. She did everything we asked and I wasn't nervous or stressed from the second we got there until the end of the night. The space was AMAZING. The lights at night twinkling over the river was just perfect. Everyone kept talking about it and how it was the fanciest wedding they have ever been to. We can't say enough about Lauren, she is so professional, efficient and quick to respond, I couldn't have done it all without her! I recommend Chelsea Piers Sunset Terrace to everyone wanting an amazing NYC wedding for an affordable price.

    Perfect Day

    There's plenty of venues to choose from in Manhattan but none compare to Sunset Terrace! We booked this venue back in 2019 but because of the pandemic we postponed our wedding. They were incredibly flexible with moving our date and accommodating anything we might need including accommodating food allergies. Not only does this venue offer stunning views and amazing food but the staff is incredibly kind and professional.  Every individual we've had the pleasure of working with at Sunset Terrace was so knowledgeable and helpful. They handled everything from seating, to linens, to food and drinks. This made wedding planning so much easier because we didn't have to hire many vendors. Day of coordination was amazing and kept us stress free. We were able to enjoy our day safely with our loved ones.
    If you are on the fence about choosing Sunset Terrace because of the ice rink nearby I can promise you that no one will even remember it once they pass through the doors. We had our wedding in December and all of our guests are still telling us how much fun they had, how beautiful everything was, and how much they loved the food! 
    If you're looking for stunning views,  prime location,  delicious food, professional and kind staff have your wedding at Sunset Terrace!

    Best Day Ever

    When my partner and I were initially looking for venues to get married, we knew it had to be in Manhattan since we are both natives to the borough. Aside from that we weren't really sure what we were looking for but when we saw Sunset Terrace at Chelsea Piers we knew we found a perfect match. The physical venue is hard to beat with stunning views of the Hudson River, plenty of getting ready room, onsite parking, and a huge ceremony/reception space. The space marries industrial vibes while remaining whimsical and romantic with the views. The staff we worked with were responsive, creative, and patient. Other venues we spoke with started with a list of don'ts-- no candles indoors, no live music, etc. At Chelsea Piers, they said, "tell us what you want and we'll do what we can to make it happen." They coordinated with our other vendors seamlessly. Our main priority was making sure our guests had a memorable time and two weeks later, we're still receiving glowing feedback about how much fun they had, how tasty and unique the food was, and how stunning everything looked. 11/10 would recommend this space for any wedding. Full disclosure if you do choose this as your venue: -The space is directly next to an ice hockey rink, so if you plan to get ready on site, bring layers! -Since it is an indoor NYC venue, they require all attendees to be fully vaccinated (woohoo!) -Prepare for the best day of your life!
