Services we Offer

Haven’s Kitchen is a light-filled, full-service carriage house nestled in the heart of Chelsea. With close to 4,000 square feet of versatile space—including an intimate living room, gracious dining room, and airy third floor loft—our dedicated team plans
Personalized Menus
As a daytime café and cooking school, we bring signature menu planning to the table. Our couples work closely with our Service Manager and Events Chef to build out a seasonal food and beverage menu based on their preferences and dietary needs.
Our full-service events company is staffed by professionals with experience from some of New York City's best restaurants such as Per Se, Momofuku, and Jean-Georges. Our team balances a style of service that is polished, hospitable, and attentive.
Whether dressed up or pared down, Haven’s Kitchen offers a beautifully spare backdrop that walks the line between Classic New York elegance and dynamic downtown Manhattan.


When we tell couples that we’ve planned weddings with New Zealanders over Skype, they can’t quite believe it. But when we explain that our primary role in your wedding is to listen actively and ask questions—about who you are as individuals and how you plan on living as a couple—it makes more sense. 

Embedded in our approach is a genuine curiosity about who you are and how you want to celebrate. We’ve all been to beautiful parties that don’t linger in our minds for very long, and we’ve been to seemingly unspectacular events that leave us feeling warm and positive for weeks. What is the magic? For us, it’s when a wedding truly reflects the couple and lets their story shine in every detail. Because those details — how we transform the space, customize menus and cocktail offerings, and stitch together seamless timelines with impeccable service style — are metaphors of something bigger.

Unlike other venue, catering, service, and planning are all integrated, making weddings at Haven’s seamless, intimate and easier to plan.
