Do you dream of getting married in Central Park or any other New York City park? Rev. Peluso, a specialist in Central Park and NYC park weddings, can help you select the most romantic location for your group size, your budget, the time of year, and--for those perfect photos--the right time of day. Let Rev. Peluso share with you her inside information--the pluses and minuses--of each location.
Some of the best sites are absolutely free for parties of fewer than 20 people. For larger groups, an inexpensive permit must be obtained at least 21-30 days in advance and costs about $25 for everywhere except the Conservatory Gardens. For Central Park permit information, check out http://www.centralparknyc.org/visit/general-info/permits For other locations and parks around NYC, go to: http://www.nycgovparks.org or http://www.nyceventpermits.nyc.gov .
Did you know a permit for the elegant Conservatory Gardens will cost several hundred dollars...and there is no provision for rain! As romantic as New York is, we get a lot of rain. And a wedding in light rain can be beautiful. But some months we get powerful winds. An uncovered location, without a backup plan, is ill advised except for the driest months of the year July-early October. On the other hand, Rev. Peluso has performed magical Winter Snow Weddings. Ask Rev. Peluso when it is most likely to snow--sorry, no, not at Christmas!
Other parks with spectacular views in Manhattan include Riverside Park overlooking the Hudson, particularly in April (check out the cherry blossoms!) and mid-late October (check out the foliage!). Other parks include: Fort Tryon/ The Cloisters in northern Manhattan.
For breathtaking lower Manhattan views of the Statue of Liberty and New York Harbor, try Battery Park and Battery Park Marina.
For the best views of the city skyline try Hoboken, New Jersey--cross the Hudson by ferry!--or from Long Island City. And don't forget the Brooklyn Bridge and the Brooklyn Heights Promenade.
Yes! You CAN get married on the Brooklyn Bridge and in Brooklyn Bridge Park. How about a wedding at The Central Park Zoo? And did you know that every NYC borough has impressive botanical gardens?
Let Rev. Peluso guide you throughout the entire NYC marriage process, from obtaining your marriage license through the finalization of your legal certificate.
Do you wish to register your marriage in another country after the wedding? The requirements vary widely from country to country, and Rev. Peluso can save you much time and frustration. And if you, as a couple, will face US immigration interviews after your wedding, Rev. Peluso will share essential information to enable you to avoid problems as you seek official recognition of your marriage.
