At Eloping Is Fun, we specialize in creating joy-filled, true-to-you NYC elopements and intimate ceremonies. With almost a decade of experience, you could safely say we know a thing or a thousand about NYC weddings!
We’re all about bespoke, romantic, and FUN elopements that scream you! With our own band of merry officiants, photographers, videographers and planners, we’ve grown into something we’re damn proud of, helping hundreds of gorgeous couples from far-flung cities all across the world to cool Brooklynites in our own backyard. Each wedding is unique, beautiful, and kinda badass — just like you! 😉
Where it all began…
It all started when our founder, Jenny started getting enquiries from couples who wanted to ditch the big, traditional wedding thing and do something real – i.e. escape the trappings of a ubiquitous NYC city hall wedding and actually throw a celebration befitting one of the most important days of your life! From there, a brand new approach to weddings was born.
Perform heartfelt wedding ceremonies
Capture joy through big, bright and bold wedding photography and videography
Plan uniquely awesome elopement activities
Cheer you on as you start the adventure of a lifetime!
We love wedding photography with personality, cheap street food, art with edge, fancy hotels, and that crazy vibrant energy you can only find in NYC. Even better, we love sharing it all with you, crafting outta-this-world elopements that are unlike any other.
After working with our couples, we kinda feel like we're part of the family – so don’t be a stranger! Keeping in touch with and watching our couples’ families grow warms our big hearts, for real.
What’s Our Style?
We like to think our name says it all. We want to make your micro wedding or elopement crazy fun, but also stress-free and simple. Our approach is to make the whole process as easy breezy as possible, as we get to know you and guide you through each step.
We’re also all about livin’ it up on our photo shoots. We love it when strangers hoot and holler as we walk down the street and we always enjoy a sprinkle of spontaneity. You won’t find anything cookie-cutter when you team up with us — ever! You focus on the fun things and let us handle the rest.
After signing on with us (great decision, btw), we’ll send you our VERY comprehensive NYC elopement planning guide. This will catch you up on exactly what to expect and how to prepare for your elopement, as well as list a whole bunch of helpful links where you can book in your hair, makeup, flowers, etc. Oh, and our favorite part — EIF’s little black book of badass and downright delicious NYC restaurants and speakeasies!
We are proud to be a team that celebrates all gender identities, sexual orientations and relationship models. No matter the path, Eloping is Fun is an open and safe place for the expression of your love and uniqueness.

A ”hopeful” romantic, Bushwick Freddy’s childhood love of Hollywood’s Golden Age is what he credits for his having never met a rom-com he hasn’t liked, and he freely admits that as an officiant with Eloping Is Fun, learning of a couples’ love journey, writing their ceremony and wedding them combines his favorite things: romance, writing and New York City.
For over two decades, Reverend Bushwick Freddy has called the city one of his true loves. Originally an actor, it was at a fund-raiser that Freddy found himself woo-ed by the fashion industry—and the opportunity to travel the world with supermodels as “work"
He went on to build a career first as a fashion stylist and casting director, then as a talent manager and finally as a publicist, where his roster of A-list clients included the likes of Doutzen Kroes, Irina Shayk and the iconic Linda Evangelista, among others.
A natural storyteller, it was friends, family and clients who encouraged Freddy to focus on his creative writing. As the celebrant on the most important day of a couples’ life, Freddy’s congenial attitude and affable personality manages to put others at ease, making him the perfect fit for intimate NYC weddings, and one of the city’s favorite officiants.
