Get to know Stephanie and her fiance during their engagement session as they plan for a New York wedding. We decided to start at the Wythe Hotel, a Brooklyn wedding venue, and walk around the neighborhood.
There are so many locations to have your wedding in New York. Most of our conversation, while we walked around, was about their wedding planning. While planning a New York wedding, the couple noted how many vendors there are available to them — it seemed really overwhelming.
I suggested to them, as I do for all couples, to break down the planning process. Pick ONE type of vendor, and plan a week where you will decide to interview 3 different vendors from that one type. Get to know some of your friends’ favorite DJs or photographers, then widdle down who you connect with the most via their website or portfolio. From there make a decision on 3 options to interview the following week.
When you break it down into smaller chunks, it makes eating the whole meal (ie. planning your whole New York wedding) a lot easier to actually eat and enjoy.
When looking at New York wedding venues, make sure to think about how your guests will get there. Do you need parking? Hotels? What’s close by for portraits. There are tons to think about. Let’s break it down.
With New York as your oyster for your New York wedding, consider some options to spice up your wedding:
The Wythe Hotel is a boutique hotel in the heart of Brooklyn, next door to the Williamsburg. With full floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall windows, it’s an incredible location for your guests and your getting ready pictures.
For your New York wedding, the Wythe Hotel can have a rehearsal dinner at one of their two in house restaurants. The Hotel offers a couple of different ceremony/reception options, some with gorgeous views of Manhattan.
When having a New York wedding, there’s nothing better than walking around a Brooklyn neighborhood for an engagement session. Enjoy being inspired by the different things that you see, and just walk where the inspiration leads you.
You’ll stumble into trees and parks as well as more industrial backdrops as you walk. Stop in at a brewery or a coffee shop — which will be easy, given there’s one on every block in Brooklyn.
