Engagement Season Is Almost Over And Now It’s Time To Start Planning For The Big Day!
After setting your budget, possible dates, and starting your guest list, the next step is choosing your venue. With so many options in the Greater New York City area, it can definitely be overwhelming, but we’ve got you covered with a list of some our favorite venues for your special day.
Personally, this is one of my favorite places in the Hudson Valley. Caramoor’s flower gardens, picturesque cedar trails and historic home makes this unique space perfect for a wedding. Caramoor can host parties from 50-800 guests allowing guests to experience all 90 archers throughout the course of the evening. Don’t forget to visit throughout the season for one of their amazing summer concerts!
Surrounded by lush gardens, perfect views of the Hudson River, and a stunning coy pond, Wave Hill is a magical wedding venue. Sunset cocktails on the lower lawn will surely take your guests’ breaths away followed by dancing inside the historic Mark Twain Room. What could be better?
Museums are one of the trendiest places to get married, and Brooklyn Museum is top of the list. Guests get VIP access to art, culture and an experience they will never forget. With the ceremony in the pavilion followed by dinner and dancing in the Beaux Arts, the museum can be your canvas for the perfect love story.
For the rustic chic wedding couple, The Foundry offers great outdoor space, lots of exposed brick, and a fun industrial vibe. With views of the Queensboro Bridge, the ivy covered oasis is a dream for every couple!
If you want to get married in the heart of Manhattan, this secret garden awaits you! Right off of 5th Ave, 620 Loft and Garden overlooks St Patrick’s Cathedral and Rockefeller Plaza for some of the best views in New York City. The crisp interior allows for you to bring your vision to life, which is only matched by the elegance of the pristine gardens.
The legendary Plaza Hotel is the perfect location for a one-of-a-kind celebration that is modern, timeless and elegant. With 4 enchanting rooms to chose from, there’s no doubt that your wedding will feel like a real-life fairytale.
