Named after the famous poet and playwright, Shakespeare Garden offers four- acres of beautifully landscaped grounds for starry-eyed couples seeking a romantic wedding location at an affordable price (the permit fee for a wedding ceremony is only $25). The Garden is not as busy as some of the more popular elopement locations in Central Park like Ladies Pavilion, but still offers easy access to other parts of the park. Our photography team always love working here and couples usually take post-ceremony photos at Belvedere Castle next door before heading to Bethesda Fountain for a few more photos (both less than a 10 minute walk from Shakespeare Garden). Adding a wedding video to our all-inclusive elopement package is a great option for ceremonies at Shakespeare Garden as well since it’s easy to find a quiet area to exchange vows without the usual background noise of the NYC streets!
Letting your personal style shine through on your wedding day is a great way to stand out in a sea of white dresses, long veils and bow ties. What other day do you get to turn the spot light on yourselves and create an event that celebrates your individual styles and taste? We say take full advantage of the opportunity and don’t be afraid to take risks! This adorable couple, Christine and Cody are a great example of that. They booked our all-inclusive Central Park elopement package to document their day and with a pink wedding dress and personalized Converse in tow, headed to NYC to get hitched.

All the way from South Carolina, this adorable southern couple came to the Big Apple to tie the knot.
