I appreciate your interest! Celebrating weddings is a true honor, and I would be delighted to participate in your elopement or intimate wedding. Since 2008, I have officiated 1500 (and counting) marriage ceremonies and vow renewals all over the New York Metro Region. My couples are brilliantly diverse, and I enjoy them all. As a professional, full-time registered officiant and celebrant, I care about what I do. I strive to give couples a ceremony with integrity and insight.
Getting married legally involves obtaining a license and celebrating with a marriage ceremony, whether it be five or forty 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.
Please feel free to e-mail me at ElopeNYC@gmail.com with the place, date, and time of your wedding to check availability.
