Getting Married in New York

Getting Married in New York

Getting married in New York is incredibly romantic. If you’re planning your wedding in New York, there are a number of things to consider. Especially if you intend to elope in NYC. You can celebrate this special day in multiple ways, along with one of the many romantic activities in New York.

Getting Married in NYC

If you want to get married in New York, you need a ‘Marriage License’. This marriage licence is a legal document issued by the State of New York prior to the marriage. With this document, the State of New York authorises the marriage. The marriage itself must be performed by a wedding officiant, a person who has the authorisation to marry people in New York. You can also get married in the Office of the City Clerk.

If you get married in New York, you will receive your Marriage Certificate. You don’t need to register your marriage in Canada, though. Your marriage will be legal and recognised back home if you followed the correct US legal process and your marriage would also be allowed under Canadian law.

Eric’s Tip: You do not need an Extended Marriage Certificate or an apostille for Canada. In fact, you can simply relax and enjoy your wedding day!

Marriage Proposal in New York

There are plenty of romantic spots in New York that are perfect for a proposal. Get down on one knee on the Bow Bridge in Central Park, for example. Another option is on one of New York’s observation decks. With stunning views of the city as the backdrop, it’s a moment you won’t forget anytime soon.

You can also pop the question to your partner on the water. You could enjoy the food and stunning views of the Manhattan skyline on the luxurious Bateaux Dinner Cruise.
