According to CNN Money, the average cost for a wedding in New York City is said to be around $87,000 (the going rate for a brand new house in Augusta, Georgia). Moving the celebration to the outer boroughs of NYC will save you about 30 grand while crossing the GWB to NJ will run you about 40K for a wedding. While we can all agree that even the “cheaper option” is no small chunk of change, couples are finding ways to cut cost on their big day. Take for instance, this beautiful same sex couple, Vicky & Tina. Our photography and video team recently had the honor of capturing their big day at Brooklyn-based venue, Giando on the Water.
