The Manhattan skyline painted in the backdrop as you wed is not the only perk of getting married in Brooklyn Bridge Park. According to the Celtic oath, Vows exchanged near water and over a stone are more binding, like turning mere words into Rock! What's better? You can find a stone from Pebble Beach and Voila' an unbreakable promise to love each other forever
Another awesome Australian couple, hailing from Sydney, tied the knot today beneath the pale blue trellises of the Ladies' Pavilion. The park was mostly empty, aside from a few runners and cyclists, and the overcast skies made the lush greenery pop.
The bride wore a beautiful knitted cream dress and carried peach-colored French tulips. The groom wore a peach tie to match and a navy suit hand-picked by the bride, complete with shiny black, geometric cufflinks.
During the ceremony, the groom recited the Robert Burn's poem Red, Red Rose to his bride. They had four of their closest friends as their guests.
It was a romantic and rainy affair! Let's hope they get to enjoy some beautiful NYC spring weather before they head back home across the globe, to Sydney.
This couple flew, with their closest family and friends, from the land down under, all the way across the world, to tie the knot in Central Park. Those are their adorable sons in the background, pointing out all the "snapping turtles" in the pond.
But before any of the nuptials began, the bride and groom had to MacGyver their way through some good old-fashioned New York City traffic. We heard the bwap-bwap-bwap of sirens through Central Park, and up rolls the groom and his two sons in a cop car (!!!). You can bet those two boys will always remember their parents' wedding. What an entrance!
Despite her oldest sons' request that the bride wear a sparkly blue, sequined gown to her wedding (that he adamantly insisted she try on when he spotted it through the window of a downtown NYC clothing shop, and then promptly bawled when she didn't purchase it), the bride wore a beautiful beaded cream dress and lilies in her hair. She looked absolutely stunning. The gold that the couples' rings were composed of was mined from the earth by the groom's father and saved for this special occasion. Talk about sentimental value!
Here's the whole crew, babies and all, before popping champagne to celebrate the newlyweds! It's like "icing on the cake" the groom said, of sealing the deal on their marriage.
Maybe we just need more Australians around to make America cool again! Joking...or am I?!
We are a New York City based wedding officiant group who marries as many locals as we do foreigners. Couples come from all over the world and from all different states in America to get married here.
NYC is the second most popular place to elope in the the United States. Vegas being the first, naturally. So it's no wonder that we fell in love with Eloped NYC
The reasons we love them:
- They know the coolest spots in NYC and will guide you as a local to hidden locations unbeknownst to tourists
- They organize EVERYTHING for you!
- When I've worked with them, it has been effortless chic. For me and most importantly, for the couple
Eloped NYC is a family of New York City photographers that care about your unique story and how you want it told. They come with a fresh approach to capturing any occasion, and pride themselves on providing incredible imagery that will last a life-time. They work in a relaxed and natural way, no stress or uncomfortable posing, to capture your day!
I know this post is a bit delayed, but it's wedding season so better late than never! Last month, we were lucky enough to be chosen to participate in Modern Fete NYC: a curated group of NYC wedding artists all in one place on the night of April 2nd 2017. We had a blast! We met so many engaged cute couples looking for fresh fashionable ideas to enhance their weddings. There were so many state of the art vendors in one place, our heads were spinning. From giant balloons with trailing vines to a hair stylist that could braid hair so creatively that I wanted to kidnap her and keep her in my vanity closet:) The catering samples were palette orgasms. We truly felt honored to be a part of it.
We here at Officiant NYC are so happy and proud of our country’s decision today on marriage equality! All of our families, friends, and children deserve to grow up and live in country that accepts us for who we are and whomever we choose to love.
People all over the world have been hashtagging #lovewins – and today it sure feels like it did.
Since same sex marriage was legalized in New York State since 2011, Officiant NYC has married hundreds of
glowing gay and lesbian couples and can’t wait to see the country allow this pure affection of the heart to flourish even further. The Supreme Court has made a wonderful, just, and emotionally intelligent decision and the entirety of country should be celebrating pride this weekend.
We’re rejoicing in this news and are so thrilled to do our part in spreading the love.

The centerpiece of Bethesda Terrace, Bethesda Fountain is one of the most recognized fountains in the world. The neoclassical sculpture, also known as The Angel of the Waters, was designed by Emma Stebbins in 1868 and dedicated in 1873, at which point Stebbins became the first woman to receive commission for a major work of art in the city of New York. Whether you choose to wed by the fountain itself or in the shelter of the lower passage with it magnificent tiled ceiling, this is one of Central Parks most loved wedding sites.
I worked with Michelle at Elise and Mitch's wedding at The Liberty House in Brooklyn. She was so talented! She had the best boutonniere's I've ever seen. Here's a few shots of her work. Check out her website for all of your floral needs.
