We’ve had the wonderful opportunity to do a handful of weddings at Tribeca Rooftop + Tribeca 360° over the years – it’s been great to see how the venue works with all the different styles. We are wondering what are your favorite ways to see the venue decorated?
My favorite way to see the venue decorated is with greenery placed along the wall leading into cocktail hour, trailing up the mezzanine stairs that lead to the rooftop terrace, and hanging from the ceiling. With our in-house votive candles placed along the wall against the windows in-house pin spot lighting, the natural decor transforms Tribeca Rooftop into a surreal forest wonderland.
