The romantic skyline at night, the heaps of chic venues you have to choose from– it’s all part of the reason why so many couples choose to get married in New York City. You probably want to plan a wedding that’s going to amaze your out-of-town guests, even those who have been to New York Before. We have a few venues and sightseeing options that are sure to give you some inspiration.
Do you want wedding photos with the NYC skyline in the background? Do you also want to be a part of that postcard-ready skyline? Get married on a skyscraper!
For example, Top of the Rock observation deck provides upscale banquet and catering facilities for your reception, and a 360-degree view of New York City for your ceremony. It’s certain that your wedding guests have never seen anything like it before.
For another refreshing and one-of-a-kind ceremony, you could consider getting married on a boat. Sail past Manhattan on a yacht or a smaller, more intimate water vessel with Manhattan by Sail. Your wedding guests (and wedding photos) will have a view of the Statue of Liberty, with the New York skyline on one side and a vast expanse of water on the other side. These lavish boats offer catering, as well. Your guests will feel like they’re part of a ritzy yacht party as you say your vows!
