After Developing the Ceremony... Then What?

Whether you and your beloved are exchanging private vows in Central Park or sharing your day with dozens of friends and relatives, there are a myriad of details that need be addressed to ensure a smooth wedding day. Even couples who live and work in this region find it challenging to make wedding arrangements around their busy schedules. The task is even more daunting when you live outside of the City. That is where I come in!

Venue Selection

Let me alleviate some of the burden of your joyous day. I stand prepared to help you with venue selection, whether it is an outdoor location or indoor space. New York is a treasure trove of free or inexpensively priced settings for an intimate affair.

If you prefer a larger gathering, there is no city in America that offers more interesting, diverse, and fabulous choices for your special day. And, if you choose to have your wedding outdoors, and need a back up location for inclement weather—I can help with that, too!

Florists & Decorations

Bouquets and floral arrangements can be a major expense for any wedding, but they needn’t be. While I can point you in the direction of full-service and artistically exquisite floral designers, I can also take you to New York’s “flower district” where we can hand-pick your flowers and greenery for a fraction of the cost.

And if you have other requests for your day—be they balloons or bubbles to blow after the vows—I will gladly help you check those from the to do list.

Musicians

As with all arts and culture, New York is the center of the Universe. Whether you desire a classically trained string quartet, an acoustic guitar player or a rock-a-billy band, let me assist in finding musical talent to fit your budget, whatever that might be.

Having worked with many arts and culture charities over the years, I know just where to look to satisfy the most eclectic and discriminating music lover.

Photographers

In my experience, there is no wedding task more daunting than selecting a photographer. Hiring a photographer is generally a significant investment for couples, and wading through the scores of qualified photographers and their portfolios can be exhausting.

I have worked with some wonderful wedding photographers here in New York, and I am always on the lookout for talented, flexible, kind photographers. Wedding photographs are cherished remembrances, and I can guide you through this most difficult task in planning your day.

Stylists

While every woman glows on her wedding day, a bride may want the extra assistance of a hair stylist and make-up artist.

I can provide stylist suggestions and alternatives that will satisfy any budget so that you can look picture perfect.

The Marriage License

Particularly for individuals who live outside America, the legal process of obtaining the marriage license can be anxiety provoking. Clerks offices in New York City and the surrounding areas have done much to make the process more “user friendly,” but it helps to have an advocate “on the ground” before and after the wedding. More details on the Clerks Offices on the right side of this page.

Anything Else?
