Central Park locations:
Located on the west side between 75th and 76th Streets, Ladies Pavilion is a charming example of 19th century American decorative arts. Architect Jacob Wrey Mould designed the ornate Victorian pavilion in 1871 as a shelter for trolley passengers. Today many couples choose to get married in this romantic spot, for obvious reasons.
Often described as park’s “hidden oasis”, Wagner Cove surely is one of the most wonderful places to say “I do”. The lake and the boats with a drop-off point exactly at this corner, make the place even more dreamlike. It is located in mid-park at 72nd Street west of Cherry Hill.
Belvedere Castle, meaning “beautiful view” in Italian, has two balconies from where visitors can see the Delacorte Theater, the Great Lawn, the Turtle Pond and the Ramble. It was designed in 1865 by Calvert Vaux and Jacob Wrey Mould. Besides its beauty and stunning stone façade, the National Weather Service made purpose out of the Castle, by using its tower for weather measurements (wind speed and direction). In 1983, the Central Park Conservancy renovated and reopened the structure, which now also serves as the Henry Luce Nature Observatory. Inside, visitors will discover a vast collection of natural history artifacts. Belvedere Castle is located in mid-park at 79th street.
This Central Park’s icon is located on the east side, at the Pond at 59th street, and it gives us beautiful views of the park and the city. During spring and summer it is especially remarkable because of the colorful Victorian Gardens.
Cast Iron Bridge, crossing over The Lake, was designed by Calvert Vaux and Jacob Wrey Mould, in 1862. Bow Bridge is one of the most photographed and filmed locations in Central Park. This wonderful romantic place was in numerous movies: Autumn in New York, When in Rome, Made of Honor, Spider Man 3, Night at the Museum and many TV shows as well. As a legend of NY, love birds often decide to use this bridge for wedding ceremonies and proposals.
Empire State Building:
Legendary 103-story skyscraper, with a world famous rooftop is also available for wedding ceremonies. Some amazing couples did tie the knot at the top of this building that used to be the highest in the world for over 40 years (1,454 feet or 443 m). Besides the adrenaline rush and a lot of wedding excitement, one of the coolest things at this location is the photographs from the weddings, with a breathtaking Manhattan view.
New York’s trademark since 1883, a magical bridge with a wonderful view had to be on our list of top wedding locations. It connects the boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn by spanning the East River. Be aware of the wind and tourists, and lots of positive energy here!
Grand Central Station
One of the most beautiful constructions in New York, with powerful energy and history, is very often used as a wedding chapel. Built by and named for the New York Central Railroad in the heyday of American long-distance passenger rail travel, it is the largest such facility in the world by number of platforms with 44 serving 67 tracks along them (89 East 42nd Street at Park Avenue).
