Frequently Asked Questions

How does booking a space with Cocoon work?

It starts with a consultation. Reach out to us and tell us about your dream wedding reception. A member of our customer experience team will work with you to ensure we are able to make your vision a reality.

If you decide to move forward, a member of our customer experience team will visit the space with you in person and take further notes on your ideas, so they can begin organizing decor, catering, other vendors as needed (such as djs, live music, a/v tech, etc.), logistics, and insurance. For the day of the event, you will be assigned at least one Casa Manager (depending on the size of your reception) who will be onsite with you to ensure everything runs smoothly and to help coordinate deliveries, guest arrivals, and anything else you may need.

What type of services do you offer for rooftop weddings?

We offer a one-stop complete array of event services to handle your wedding needs. Our goal is to make sure you have the experience you want, so we have an expert event professional work with you one-on-one. You tell us your vision and we will source all the options to custom build your rooftop wedding.

Unlike other wedding planners, we also rent space, so we start with sharing what kind of rooftop wedding you envision- an intimate chef dinner, a live band so you can dance under the stars, or an intimate ceremony with a skyline backdrop, we have spaces for every need.
When the foundational element of space is selected, we consult with you step-by-step to build from there. We bring all the options to you for you to choose—your life will not come to a standstill during this process, you provide direction and we do all the work.

We arrange for the florists, catering, bartending, photographers, party tents, videographers, after-party bar reservations, car services, hair and makeup, nearby hotels, music, cakes and bakeries, photo booth rentals, performers, lighting equipment, furniture rentals, balloons, and decor. Anything you need, we can provide.
On the day of your rooftop wedding, a Casa Manager will be onsite the entire time to handle everything. Your first moments of married life will be pure bliss and stress-free.

Can I use my own catering company?

Sure thing. If you already have a caterer you like and know, of course you are welcome to use that company. If you do not, we do have an extensive network of caterers. Once you have confirmed your space rental with us, our event team will listen to your must-haves and wishes about food and service (buffet versus table service, for example) and we will release your request to our network and source the best quotes for you.

It is important to note that we believe strongly in supporting our vendor communities to create a diverse business ecosystem in NYC. This means that we do not accept payments from vendors to be listed with us and we are constantly seeking to include new and talented vendors in our network.

Do I need insurance to use your spaces?

Yes. We can help you with this. For weddings, we partner with a few insurance providers and our management team can work with you to get an insurance quote that meets your budget and needs.

What are my payment options?

Credit card, wire transfer, direct deposit, and Paypal.

How much advance notice do you need to run an event?

We do best with a couple of weeks notice, the more time we have the better. That said, we also specialize in miracles. 😇 Call us and tell us what you need, we can most likely make it work.
