Home to over 2.6 million New Yorkers, Brooklyn is the most populous city in the boroughs so it’s no wonder more and more people are choosing to get hitched here!

Given it’s easy access from the other boroughs, its’ diverse wedding venue options , waterfront locations and skyline views, Brooklyn is the best choice for couples on a budget or any engaged pair that wants a unique wedding venue without breaking the bank!
