If you need a wedding officiant in New York or Toronto, email me at MaryBeaty (at) gmail (dot) com, and I'll try to help. Best wishes! Stay safe!


Weddings on the Brooklyn Bridge

Are very windy. Also, you need to actually SIGN the license on the Brooklyn or NY side - as you need a street location for the marriage license. One couple we married were each born in a different borough, and chose the BBridge as a common meeting point. But they couldn't decide whether to sign the license on the Manhattan OR the Brooklyn side! We settled for the Brooklyn Promenade with the VIEW of Manhattan. Very "Moonstruck". You can consider the Fulton Ferry Park UNDER the bridge, but you may have to share the space.
