Featuring Susan + Navad‘s NYC Elopement

Susan and Navad decided to elope in NYC at Manhattan City Hall. They wanted an intimate and memorable experience, but wanted to keep it very personal and special for their families. In this blog post, we’ll explore some valuable tips for making your City Hall elopement special while highlighting the beautiful elopement day with Susan and Navad.

Manhattan City Hall Elopement Tips: Making it Special for Everyone Involved

City Hall may limit the number of guests, but that doesn’t mean you can’t include your loved ones in a meaningful way. Here are some tips to make your elopement special for all involved:

  • City Hall currently allows only six guests, including you and your fiance and your photographer. Consider having your special people waiting outside to toss petals after you exchange vows, creating a memorable exit. Susan and Navad opted to have their family gather outside city hall to celebrate them and it was such a sweet moment.
  • Take the morning to yourselves before meeting up with family. Whether it’s making breakfast together or sharing a special moment, having your photographer document these private moments adds a personal touch to your story.
  • Opt for a short dress, or a silky long dress without a train like Susan, and a bouquet from your favorite local florist. Bring water and fans, especially during the summer, to ensure you stay comfortable during the celebration. And don’t forget to indulge in a New York hot dog for that extra burst of energy!

The Perfect Location: Manhattan City Hall for Your Elopement

Manhattan City Hall on Worth Street offers a picturesque backdrop with City Hall Park, stunning buildings, and a train station that captures the best light at any time of day. Utilize these surroundings for pre- or post-ceremony photos to add depth and variety to your wedding album.

Susan and Navad chose to elope at City Hall for a unique reason – both their families are from outside the US. To keep the celebration intimate, they gathered a few close friends, acting as witnesses. After the ceremony, the couple walked with their friends before heading to the iconic Manhatta bar for a special dinner. It was a celebration filled with love, laughter, and cherished moments.

One of my favorite moments was when Susan and Navad, brimming with happiness, invited me to join them for a glass of champagne at the bar. This genuine connection and the ability to share in their joy is what makes capturing smaller elopements so special.
