We are a professional photographer and experienced registered marriage officiant in New York. Together, we have helped hundreds of couples celebrate their spontaneous elopement, classic intimate wedding, or a fun, "stealth" ceremony. Judie has married 1300+ couples, and Liam has photographed 400+ elopements and small weddings. As married co-workers who choose a tiny wedding ourselves, we specialize in "sweet and simple" services for all loving couples. We are especially delighted to reside within a State that supports Marriage Equality.

Getting married legally involves obtaining a license and celebrating with a marriage ceremony, whether it be five or thirty minutes long. If you need a public record (most do) and plan to marry in New York, you must secure a marriage license in advance somewhere in New York. The process, which is fairly easy, is the same for locals and non-residents who plan a NYC destination wedding. For details, visit a New York Clerk's office near you. A vow renewal does not require a license.

Some popular wedding ceremony locations for tiny gatherings include Central Park, City Hall Park, the Brooklyn Bridge, Fort Tryon Park, Bryant Park/the New York Public Library, Grand Central, Riverside Park, Battery Park, Booklyn Bridge Park, Carl Schurz Park, Astoria Park, the High Line, Prospect Park, a formal or community garden, a restaurant, a Unitarian chapel, or even a Hotel suite.

Please feel free to e-mail with the place, date, and time of your wedding to check availability.

Yours truly,

Judie Guild, Officiant
Liam P. Madden, Photographer
