While it just passed, summer will be here before we know it, which means the wedding season will go back into full swing. If you’re planning a New York City wedding, you’ll want to check out the best New York wedding locations— perfect for any type of bride or groom, no matter your style.
The Central Park Boathouse:
Perhaps the most quintessentially New York spot to get married in Central Park, and where better to get married in Central Park than on a terrace or in a windowed room overlooking the lake in The Boathouse?
The Angel Orensanz Center:
This 1849 synagogue, modeled after the Cathedral of Cologne, has a Gothic style with a New gold-leaf altar. It once was the studio of Spanish sculptor Angel Orensanz, but now hosts art events, performances, and private events. It is perhaps best well known as the site of the 1997 wedding of Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick.
The Prince George Ballroom:
Although the Prince George Ballroom was built as a luxury hotel in 1904, it suffered from several years of decline before Common Ground rescued it & turned it into permanent affordable housing. The grand Beaux-Arts ballroom was affectionately restored & is now part of the Madison Square North Historic District and the National Register of Historic Places. The golden columns, convoluted plaster-work, and tall ceilings create a space that is concurrently ornate and light and airy. Best of all, your site-rental fee helps support Common Ground's social service programs.
Brooklyn Botanic Garden:
Weddings at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, taking place among the lush flowers of the rose garden, look like they are straight out of a fantasy. For a couple who doesn't mind strict rules & susceptibility to the weather, this is an incredible spot at budget prices. Alternatives include having your wedding at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden's Palm House or simply taking your wedding photos here before having the wedding elsewhere.
