Far and away, the most popular spot for small elopement ceremonies is Central Park….and with good reason. There are innumerable locations that are well-suited to a little wedding. But for a real city wedding, consider the Brooklyn Bridge Park.
Sam & Colin (natives of Scotland and New Zealand, who now live in Brazil!) came to New York and wanted to have a ceremony that reflected the vibrancy of one of their favorite international cities. So, we hopscotched over to Brooklyn to the DUMBO (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass) neighborhood and the nifty Brooklyn Bridge Park. As you’ll see from the slideshow below, the Park offers a stunning sweep of New York’s skyline. In addition, the famed Brooklyn Bridge is a stone’s throw away, making for a fabulous backdrop for wedding photographs. For those of us who live in Manhattan, a trip to Brooklyn seems like a long way from home. But in this case, it is well worth the trip.
