10 Beautiful Jewish New York Wedding Venues – Smashing the Glass

There’s no place like New York City for a Jewish wedding. The Big Apple is chock full of options to suit couples of all tastes and styles – and nowhere is that more evident than when it comes to venues!

While you might associate NYC with glitzy ballroom Jewish weddings – and it’s certainly got plenty of amazing options for those – the city that never sleeps is also full of hidden gems, from outdoor garden venues that’ll have you feeling like you’ve been whisked away to the country to the edgiest converted warehouses and factories. 

In fact, there are SO many gorgeous Jewish wedding venue choices that we really struggled narrowing ourselves down to just 10 – but we hope you’ll take this list of just a few of our favorites as a starting point.

We’re absolutely in love with the glamor and elegance of the Rainbow Room. The sparkling chandeliers, the endless views (65 stories above Rockefeller Center!), the rotating dance floor – Jewish wedding venues don’t come any more timelessly NYC than the Rainbow Room.

Plus, unusually for a city venue, Celebrate at Snug Harbor’s got ample parking! There are SO many beautiful spots to choose from, but there’s no place like the Tuscan Garden – modeled after the Villa Gamberaia in Florence – for a gorgeous outdoor chuppah, and we guarantee your guests really will feel like they’ve been whisked off to Italy.
