Wow! Not sure where to begin. I guess I will start with Jennifer Finch (Jenn) my really awesome wedding coordinator/planner. From the day I met Jenn she was not only accommodating, but also genuinely excited and interested in my big day. She knew the ins and outs of my entire event, and could be called on for just about anything. Jenn made my dream wedding happen at truly THE most beautiful venue imaginable. Above is the most wonderful place you will visit. I am telling you, once you walk into the grand ballroom, you will FALL IN LOVE! I want to have my wedding all over again, to just enjoy the party as a guest, that is how truly wonderful the place is. The elegance and attention to detail they show at the venue made this a night to treasure for everyone.
The food was more than one can imagine, and it was truly incredible! Jenn accommodated our party who has severe allergies, and was sure to avoid using certain oils in all the foods cooked. It was like being in a dream. The venue is gorgeous, our pictures will be cherished for a lifetime. I cannot in words explain just how amazing Above is! If you are looking for a modern, elegant, and classic wedding venue, you NEED to go to Above. Call and ask for Jenn. She will be your dream come true. Thank you very much to the entire staff at Above, we are so lucky to have had such a wonderful wedding with you guys!

Two words come to mind when thinking of Above; world class. From the moment we walked in the door and met Jennifer Finch, we new we were in the right place. The professionalism and hospitality made us feel at home. We planned our wedding in less than 3 months and Jenn and her staff were there every step of the way guiding us in the right direction. From the moment we arrived on Friday evening with car loads full of stuff, Jenn took control and allowed us all to be guests at our own wedding. We are amazed by the attention to detail, the quality of the food, and the professionalism of the staff. From planning to execution we never heard the word no, and even headaches were cared for. Our bridal attendant Jackie was outstanding and went ABOVE and beyond the entire night. We never had to ask for a single thing, almost as if she was reading our minds. Our Maitre'D Jeff coordinated a flawless affair and communicated with us throughout the evening. Chef Matt is definitely the king of the kitchen and we cannot wait to come back to have more of his food. Jenn works with the best vendors and we cannot be more grateful for the choices we had. Even Mr. and Mrs. Nicotra, the owners of the hotel and venue, were present overseeing the evening and checked on us the entire weekend. If you want to feel special and apart of an even bigger family, have your wedding at Above.

The Above at the Hilton Garden Inn could not be any more perfect for a wedding venue! The entire staff including Sue, the coordinator, Jeff the maitre'd, and Jacklyn the bridal attendant, were so accommodating, attentive, and professional. The venue itself was outstandingly beautiful! Of course, the food was incredible and there were more options to choose from than I could ever count! I have had several outstanding events at the Hilton before, but the Nicotra's really out-did themselves with this event. I wish I could repeat my wedding, just so I can have another event at the Above and I would highly recommend this venue to everyone!

My heart breaks for anyone who doesn't get married at Above.

Our big, loud, russian jewish wedding was out of this world. It was the greatest night of our lives, and three months later, it STILL is. Guests still call to this day expressing what a great time they had, and that was most important for us. This was a truly spectacular, not at all average wedding. Perfectly executed, we cannot say enough about Jennifer or Carroll. They were calm, helpful, easy to work with, so sharp, on top of their game from the day we met to the day after the wedding, and genuinely love their jobs because I feel like this friendship will last a lifetime. Don't walk, RUN, to Above and let them make your Pinterest dreams come true!

XOXO,
Marina & Leo

If you want a fairy tale picture perfect wedding this is the place to go. The ball room is absolutely breath taking! The white walls and crystal ceiling made for AMAZING photos. The staff is awesome, especially Sue, in dealing with this detail oriented bride. No one even questions my crazy directions, which came with a truck full of boxes. EVERYTHING was handled perfectly. The staff at The Above helped me to sit back and enjoy every minute of our wedding the day. The food was amazing, the drinks were flowing and the party was out of control (in a good way) thanks to the Above and their recommended vendors. Our guests were blown away with our wedding as were we - we hear at every event that it was the best wedding they have ever been too. The proximity to the hotel made for an ideal location as many of our guests spent the night and partied in to the early morning hours thanks to the after party that was set up by the staff at the Above. If you want to book a venue and have peace of mind that nothing will go wrong this is the place you need to book.

My wife and I got married @ Above this past New Years Eve. Friends and family are still talking about it to this day. The space is beautiful, food phenomenal and the staff is out of this world. Our sales person: Sue Vaiana was jovial, charismatic and made the whole experience wonderful. Veronica and Jeff, the bridal attendant and maitre d' were so attentive it's like they were reading our minds. The Above & Nicotra family were beyond accommodating and we are eternally grateful for a wedding that was picture perfect.

I LOVED this venue for my wedding. Since the moment I walked into the ballroom I knew I didn't have to look any further. Our wedding coordinator Sue made us feel like we were the only couple she was working with and did not let a single detail go unchecked. Planning the wedding with them was a breeze and I was never worried that the day would be anything less than perfect. The night of the wedding, the entire staff was exceptional. Everyone was pleasant, professional and helpful to every single one of my guests. My bridal attendant Jen was amazing. It poured the entire night of our wedding and from the moment my car door opened she was there to greet me with an umbrella and did not allow a single drop of rain to touch my head while she got soaked. She was so sweet and helpful throughout the entire night. The food throughout the cocktail hour and reception was AMAZING I wish I could've eaten everything. We are about to celebrate our one year anniversary and our guests still talk about what an awesome experience they had from the food, service and all around atmosphere, all of which I contribute to The Above. I could not have asked for a more perfect night for my winter wonderland wedding and wish we could do it all again!
