City Hall

Going to the Justice of the Peace to get hitched has come a long way from the days of the “no frills” quickie ceremonies at NYC’s City Hall. The new marriage bureau located at 141 Worth Street is only one block away from the old City Hall and received a major renovation in 2009 making it a much more attractive option for couples who want to elope. The new renovations include marble pillars, floor to ceiling mirrors and electronic boards letting you know when it’s your turn. Our photography elopement packages are the perfect option for couples tying the knot at City Hall. Starting at a much lower rate than the full day package (1 hour of photography starts at $499) add in your marriage license ($35) and civil ceremony ($25) fees and you could elope in NYC for a fraction of the cost of a typical New York wedding!

21st century dating options are very different from the days when most people met through mutual friends or in their local bar. With the introduction of popular online dating sites like Tinder, OK Cupid, Match and Plenty of Fish, hopeless romantics seeking their soul mates are no longer limited in their search for “The One”. With the click of a mouse you can browse singles within 5 miles or up to 2000 miles away! Of course, meeting, falling in love and eventually marrying someone who lives in another state or country has it’s challenges, but once again technology saves the day through, free long distance calls, face time dates and of course texting adorable emojis throughout the day to your LDR lover. This beautiful couple Stephanie and Gonzalo proved that love knows no distance and got married at City Hall after meeting in Spain, check it out!

If you are starting to think of ideas for your City Hall wedding then feast your eyes on this beautiful elopement! Kat and Nathan knew they wanted their big day to be both simple and fun so they booked our elopement photography package to capture their ceremony at City Hall and travels to their favorite NYC locations. Our photographer joined the adorable pair (and their buddies) at the Marriage Bureau for their quick ceremony then captured the newlyweds making their way over the Brooklyn Bridge to Dumbo. There the Bride and Groom grabbed a bite to eat at Shake Shack before getting dessert at the popular Brooklyn Farmacy & Soda Fountain shop.. how cute!!

Amanda and Jonathan

Our photographers absolutely loved the elegant simplicity of this winter City Hall wedding. Amanda and Jonathan booked our 3-hour photo and video package to capture their intimate celebration. While our all-inclusive elopement package is very popular (it includes the officiant for a park wedding), many couples choose to keep it simple and exchange vows at the NYC Marriage Bureau instead. Our team started with the happy couple and their family for the quickie ceremony and afterwards our photographer and videographer captured the newlyweds in the downtown area for a few “just married” portraits. After a walk across the bridge, Amanda and Jonathan ended in Brooklyn Bridge Park for more photos by the water and near some of the iconic Dumbo locations like the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory and Jane’s Carousel. Be sure to check out their romantic cinematography style elopement trailer for more footage of their big day!

Alexandra and Shravan

Booking one of our Central Park wedding packages is the right choice for many couples coming to NYC to elope. The options offered in our all inclusive package include the elopement photographer and wedding videographer, the officiant, permit for the ceremony location and you can even add hair, make up and flowers to your package. However, some couples do not want an outdoor wedding and prefer to go the traditional elopement route and head to the Manhattan Marriage Bureau (City Hall) to get hitched. In that case, our elopement team can still assist you by capturing beautiful photo and video of the big day like we did with this adorable couple Alexandra and Shravan. Check it out!

Marijana and Bojan

Our elopement photographer recently joined this adorable couple at the New York City marriage bureau to capture their big day! Thanks to the unseasonably warm weather, the newlyweds were able to take some romantic outdoor portraits after their elopement in the area and even had time to go to Brooklyn after wards. City Halls’ convenient location next to the Brooklyn Bridge make it an easy commute from most of the boroughs so our photography team suggest showing up early to get a head start before the crowds come in. Be sure to check out Marijana and Bojan’s beautiful wedding day photos for inspiration!
