Spring in New York is absolutely fabulous. It is a perfect time for outdoor events and celebrations, so if you were planning to elope during this tender season, here are our top 5 elopement venues for the spring wedding.
New york botanical garden.
This venue is all you ever wish for, plus a little more. 250 acres of exotic plants and trees, greenhouses, and conservatory, this place is absolutely stunning at any season. During the spring, the Botanical Gardens are covered in blooming magnolia trees, which is the best time for an intimate elopement ceremony. Please note that you will need to apply for the ‘special occasion photography permit’ in order for your photographer to shoot there freely, but besides that, the gardens don’t have any strict regulations. Bronx Botanical Gardens is open daily from 10 am – 6pm.

If you always dreamed of a venue that is private and has magnificent views of Manhattan, this place is just right for you. The luxury rooftop garden is located in the heart of 5th avenue, overlooking St. Paul’s Cathedral. It has a huge inside room and lavish outdoor garden. The terrace is available Monday – Friday only, from 9 am – 12 pm. It is also conveniently located near Central Park so that you can have your photo session there later.
Empire Stores rooftop in Dumbo
This location is the real hidden gem of Brooklyn. Imagine eloping on a rooftop with the iconic Brooklyn Bridge in the background. This location is ideal for sunset ceremonies as you can see the whole Manhattan skyline and the East River from there. This area is famous for its spectacular views and outstanding dining. This public rooftop is open daily from 8 am – 12 am and can accommodate up to 20 ppl standing.
The world-famous park is ideal for outside wedding ceremonies. If you are looking for a place that has outstanding greenery, private gazebos, and a city view, this park is right for you. For a small and intimate ceremony, go with the Wagner’s cove or the Ladies Pavilion, if you have more than 10 guests the Cop Cot or the Belvedere castle would be a great fit. There are two restaurants within the park, so you can have your dinner celebration walking distance away. Or host a picnic on the famous Great lawn.
Private sailing boat
This option is perfect for early mornings or sunset ceremonies. Just imagine getting married on a deck with the first rays of the sun and the Statue of Liberty in your background. The sailing boat can accommodate up to 10 people and has an inside room where you can host your celebration. This option is perfect for non-traditional couples who want to add a little adventure into their life. Be aware that most of the rentals are from 2 to 4 hours and the weather can differ from the one onshore, so dress in layers. You are welcome to bring your food and beverages or can add the catering option with the rental.
