New York might be the only city in the world where the elopement season is going strong all year round. Thousands of couples rush to the city to get eloped in hopes of capturing its magic. It is no wonder that there is absolutely no shortage of the most inspiring locations and venues to choose from (and make your own!). But, where to start? Here is a breakdown of 5 elopement locations which have over the years earned the title iconic due to their mesmerizing ambience and many personalization options. 


Diverse Central Park 

No two Central Park elopements are alike! Beautiful and quintessentially New York, this urban Manhattan park covers 843 acres is a landmark offering many possibilities. Make your pick between the secret gardens, majestic trees, and neo-classical architecture to host up to 50 guests. Popular spots include the breath-taking Ladies Pavilion, romantic Gapstow Bridge, fairytale-like Belvedere Castle, Wagner Cove or Shakespeare garden. Afterwards, head straight to the Tavern on the Green, one of the top city restaurants to relish in your reception.


Dynamic Grand Central Station

The Grand Central radiates with history, gorgeous arches, and spots to use as a backdrop for your ‘I do’ moment.  Additionally, if you choose to get eloped here, there is no need to worry about the weather – rain or sunshine, you are on! As photographer, officiant or witness, our team members have taken part in a number of Grand Central Station weddings and each had that special spark infused with energy and sounds of the crowded space. To celebrate, we recommend booking the Agern Restaurant. Continue your day in style!


Traditional City Hall

When you think New York Elopement, you think City Hall. We promise beautiful photos before, during and after the ceremony on location at the Marriage Bureau and in the wedding garden across the street.  If you want to splurge on your wedding day, we highly recommend that you use our customized service and book our 3 hour photo session.  Additionally, select one of the 10 restaurants in the vicinity to have a toast with your guests and show off that “just married’ glow. 


Stunning Brooklyn Bridge Park

Trendy, stylish, and one of a kind, Brooklyn is one of the best-looking places to get married in New York City.  Stand in Brooklyn Bridge Park overlooking the Manhattan skyline and the Brooklyn Bridge. For the ultimate gorgeous photos, have our NYC wedding officiant perform your nyc marriage ceremony at sunset overlooking the Brooklyn Bridge. In case you prefer nature and a touch of wilderness more, Prospect Park offers a perfect getaway amidst the concrete jungle. As for reception? Our warmest recommendations for the famous local River cafe.

Speaks for itself – the Love Sculpture 

One of the most famous pop art masterpieces is a strong candidate for a perfect setting in which to profess love for one another. When it comes to the Love sculpture, the timing is essential. After saying your vows, make sure to take several more photos to capture and cherish that special moment. In terms of options for celebration and reception, there are plenty to pick from. Our personal favorite is Estiatorio Milos, elegant Mediterranean seafood that will not leave your guest wanting more. 

Our top 5 locations will hopefully get you started in planning the wedding. If you are sold on one of them, make sure not to forget the permit!
