Unexpected Bonus(es) of an NYC Destination Elopement


Ok, so we’re a little biased. New York City is kind of our scene. While we’re sure there are other incredible places to elope, we can’t recommend the good ol’ Big Apple enough. Whatever kind of life experience you’re looking for, we’ve got it. Guaranteed.

Picking NYC as your elopement location will offer you so much more than an epic backdrop for your nuptials and there are many, many kinds of memories to be made! 

If you’re between us and, I don’t know, let’s just say a beach somewhere with bugs and sunburns and scary sea creatures with spikes on them, give us a few minutes. We’re sure you’ll be in the “Empire State of Mind” by the end of this article. 

Here are a few of the unexpected bonuses to an NYC destination elopement. 

You can easily turn it into a Honeymoon:

I mean HELLOOooOOo. New York City is actually one of the top destinations for folks to honeymoon at. Book yourself a swanky hotel, buy yourself some spiffy sunglasses, and paint this town red. Spend your nights dancing in an underground speakeasy and your days cruising around the island in a Pirate ship. Somewhere in there, buy yourself some street meat. Just trust us, OK? We’re photographers.

Make it a family/friend vacation:

Even if you don’t invite a ton of people to your vows, they can always meet you before or after for a group extravaganza. The good news is you will never run out of things to do and there is something here for everyone. If you’re traveling from overseas, this is a great time to get your local people together, too. Cause, duh! — NYC is one of the major global transportation hubs. Someone call Grandma and tell her to put on her fun pants because ya'll are going out. 

Check off other big-ticket items on your bucket list!

Off the top of our head, here are just a few things you need to see and do before you die: 

  • Stand at the top of Rockefeller Center
  • Buy an NYC hotdog 
  • Walk the Brooklyn Bridge
  • Participate in a street performance 
  • Ride the F train to Coney Island
  • Take a picture in Times Square (with us!) 

And that doesn’t even include Radio City Music Hall, Central Park, Wall Street, One World Trade, hailing a yellow taxi cab or taking your mom to Saks Fifth Avenue to buy something shiny. (Moms LOVE shiny things.) You can experience a whole new life in just a few short days in NYC, and the best part is your forever person will be right there by your side.
