Are you looking to plan the ultimate New York City wedding? Something at an iconic venue in the heart of the city, with killer views of the magnificent skyline? Perhaps you’d even like to wed at a legendary cultural hotspot?
All that and more is possible at one of our very favourite NYC Jewish wedding venues, Carnegie Hall. One of the world’s most iconic performance spaces, Carnegie Hall also happens to be home to a variety of fantastic event spaces, from a killer rooftop terrace to a private dining room with historic fixtures to rooms with dramatic windows showcasing Central Park.
And right now, our friends at Carnegie Hall are running a competition for one lucky couple to win their dream wedding at this amazing venue!
Steel tycoon and philanthropist Andrew Carnegie and Louise Whitfield were married on April 22, 1887, in a quiet ceremony attended by a small number of family and friends. Immediately afterwards, they boarded a ship for their honeymoon in Great Britain—a trip that first inspired Carnegie to consider building his own music hall.
And in honor of this wedding that started it all, this year one lucky couple will win the chance to host their own wedding at Carnegie Hall—for free!
With a range of spaces that can be used for different elements of the day, capacity for up to 240 seated guests – and did we mention the location smack dab in the center of Manhattan? – Carnegie Hall is the perfect spot for an NYC chic Jewish wedding.
