UPDATE 2020! Mary has relocated to Toronto, Canada. You can find information about Canadian weddings at ElopeToronto.com I'm keeping this blog because I've been told it's very helpful for couples in New York! 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 in the Rain - Central park

Yes, it's been a rainy spring. We've moved a couple of weddings inside - but it's still a beautiful location, if misty and drippy. The good news - less tourists! But be prepared for soggy grass, soppy riverbanks - and very few places for shelter. In a pinch (Ladies Pavilion probably occupied) try under the Minton Terrace at the Bethesda, Dene and Cop Cot shelters, with umbrellas, the Pavilion at the Bethesda (may be occupied), or one of the stone bridges with a nice view to the other end. We had two small weddings under the Dairy canopy, lovely and dry. Or have a brief ceremony in your hotel room, get a nice Chinese paper umbrella and take a romantic carriage ride through a misty park.
