And of course in NYC there are plenty of other indoor and outdoor options available. This February we are doing an elopement inside a donut shop. We did a guerilla-style elopement at the Museum of Natural History for a professor and a police officer from Oxford England. If you can dream it we can plan it.
It's the most wonderful time of the year.........
TO ELOPE IN NYC!!!! ❄️☃️❤️
If you are thinking about eloping in NYC in the winter I am here to tell you to go for it! And we are here to help you plan you romantic and cozy winter elopement complete with x-mas lights, pashmina shawls and hot chocolate stops.
Your Guide to an amazing Winter Elopement in NYC!
Winter is a time of coming together, nesting, LIGHTS adventure, beautiful crisp air and gorgeous light. When planning your winter elopement we like to incorporate the elements that make this time of year so special.
Let's start with some indoor ceremony ideas. One of our most popular spots is the iconic Grand Central Station. GCT needs no introduction, a classic architectural gem with a beautifully restored celestial mural to watch over you as you say your vows.
A spot for the cultural bon-vivant with a slight rebellion streak is the Metropolitan Museum of Art! Me and Jonica spent months scouring the entire museum for the perfect hidden and light-filled spot overlooking the Grecian courtyard. Imagine telling the grandkids that you were married at the Met! (this public service announcement was not endorsed by the met, elope here at your won risk, although for the many elopements we have done here we have found the passing security to be very happy and supportive)
The Artists Loft
If you want something private and indoors without breaking the bank we have an exclusive location at an eclectic artist loft in Williamsburg 2 blocks from the water. A curio of curiosities and an indoor terrarium for the newlywed couple to pose inside. Bring a bottle of champagne and toast to your long and happy lives together with mismatched quirky vintage teacups. Cats live here, so not the place for you if you are allergic.

Tips for a Fabulous Winter Elopement
It can get QUITE cold in NYC and alot of our couples are from abroad, from countries like Australia and the UK. So part of my job is to prep you as to what to expect, especially if this is your fist wintertime visit to NYC. Us New Yorkers dress in layers in the winter. Uniqulo does great thermal wear, and you can get some thin but very warm wool Scandinavian tights. If your feet and hands are warm then we can be outside for hours. (Canadians I am not worried about you) REI is a great outdoors shop in SoHo that sells hand warmers.
Alcohol Helps, bourbon and whiskey especially. Bring a flask and there are always cozy sweet bars that we can pop in during out shoot for a pit stop. Winter photoshoots entail alot of indoor pit stops. We do an “elopement style questionnaire” with each of our couples so that we get to know your personality a bit more so that we can customize something very personal for you!

EIF was the best decision I could have made in regard to my wedding day. Not only did they demonstrate just how fun - and absolutely beautiful! - eloping can be, but they made it so wonderfully easy. All of our queries were answered and assuaged in record time. Jenny has REALLY thought of everything (e.g. back-up locations; various payment options, especially for those eloping in NYC from abroad) and it shows in how seamless the entire process is. Furthermore, Jenny and the team recognize that it's all in the details and absolutely no detail was overlooked in any aspect. Thank you for helping us exceed our expectations of an intimate wedding day that was memorable beyond words and perfectly personalized to us & our story.

Our wedding experience with Eloping is Fun far exceeded our expectations for our big day. The entire experience was a dream come true. No stress, hassle or drama. Just us and two of New York’s most fun people pulling off the most authentic, heartfelt wedding day. Would recommend a million times over
The Most Reverend Matt Levy wrote us a beautiful, hilarious and touching ceremony based on info we submitted. It was a dream to be able to giggle throughout and not to feel serious. Jenny coordinated a fabulously, curated photo shoot based on on info we provided.

We cannot recommend Eloping is Fun enough! From the get-go I knew we were onto something good with these guys. Jenny was so responsive to any emails we sent (of which there were many!) and she made the whole process so easy.
Joel performed our beautiful personalised ceremony which he wrote based on our questionnaire. It was funny, romantic and very touching and he delivered it so well. Jonica was our photographer and was fantastic. She made us feel so at ease and comfortable and has such a great vision. We are super excited to see our photos. If you are thinking of eloping to NY you have got to use this company. I can’t imagine anyone else could come close to their professionalism, efficiency and the quality of the service they provide.

Every couple wants their wedding day to be perfect, fun and stress-free. Matt and Jenny of Eloping is Fun gave us exactly that! They really do go above and beyond for you and make you feel special. Every detail was thought of in advance, they provided plenty of prompt support, gave recommendations for all the other services needed and from one short email brief, they understood us as a couple exactly and wrote the most perfect ceremony and also knew exactly where to take us for photos. You are in excellent hands with them. I couldn't recommend them more highly.
