Vendors We Love

New York City has some of the most talented professionals in the country. We have had the pleasure of working with excellent teams of people and here is a list of some of our favorites.

Venues – Offsite Catering

Many amazing venues allow you to choose the catering company that you would like to use. This will allow you to take advantage of an amazing space and have a tailored, personal experience. Here is a list of venues by size where you can pick and choose from some of the best chefs in New York. Putting together an a la carte wedding is not as stressful as it may seem. The catering companies that we recommend are professionals who will help you navigate the details.

New York City Classics

These venues are the perfect thing to impress out of town visitors and give them a real New York experience.

620 Loft and Garden Situated on top of Rockefeller Center, this garden in the sky has stunning views of St. Patricks. What a better way to be married, inside a cathederial, or on top of one?
Weylin B. Seymours A flawlessly restored bank just across the Williamsburg Bridge. This stunning domed building is the perfect place to entertain say 300 or more of your close friend and family.

Industrial Chic

I love repurposing things, and venues that are built in the bones of our Industrial, manufacturing roots are magic. From old foundries, and auto mechanics, to civil war era warehouses. These are the best.

There are so many talented photographers in New York it is hard to pick any favorites. Some specialize in portraits, some have more of a documentary style, others have a knack for capturing emotional memories and sweet moments.
