How to get married in New York
How can we get married in NYC is a question asked by many couples around the world! My name is Goran Veljic, founder and director of NY1 Minute Weddings, a leader in the NYC elopement and wedding industry. I am a professional and fully licensed NYC wedding photographer, wedding witness, and registered NYC wedding officiant. Let my amazing team at NY1 Minute weddings share our NYC knowledge and experience about getting married in NYC. We promise to make your NYC wedding stress free, affordable, and fun.
I founded this company when the newly renovated Marriage Bureau at 141 Worth Street (the place to get married in New York City) re-opened its doors in 2009. I love NY City Hall and helping people who want to elope and get married in NYC. You could say that I am the official wedding photographer for NY City Hall. I have helped over 7000 couples get married, which makes me one of the most experienced NYC wedding officiants and elopement photographers in the city. Many of the happy couples are from the United States. Others, who wished to elope and get married in NYC, are from United Kingdom, Australia, Germany, Italy, France and Scandinavia among many other countries from around the world.
New York City is full of celebrities, and my photographs of Sarah Jessica Parker, Alec Baldwin, Novak Djokovic and Milagros Schmoll were the among the first that brought me international recognition. Beautiful and interesting photographs and my advice about how to get married in New York have appeared in the Daily News, New York Post, BBC, NBC, NY1 and Time Out Magazine. I was one of the first NYC wedding photographers to photograph underground same sex marriages in the city. My artistic work that celebrates love in all types of weddings has been featured in photography exhibits in the United States and Europe. My award-winning photographs are now part of the permanent collection in House of Human Rights the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
Being a NYC wedding officiant a privilege. I feel fortunate to be a part of such a joyful time and to make your NYC dream wedding possible. I encourage you to believe that anything is possible when it comes to getting married in NYC. We could have your wedding in a helicopter with great views of Manhattan, in Central Park, on top of Empire State building or even in the middle of Times Square or on the Brooklyn Bridge. We promise an unforgettable wedding day with stunning wedding photography.
