Nestled behind the New York Public Library, Bryant Park serves as the most perfect backdrop for weddings at the Bryant Park Grill. It’s a perfect place for your wedding all year round. This NYC venue can hold large parties indoors in the dining room, the roof and the garden, which has a heated tent in the winter.
Before heading over to the grill for your ceremony and reception, you’ll need a getting ready space. Look no further than the Bryant Park Hotel, located *literally* right across the street. The hotel has a spectacular view of the venue and the park itself, and a beautiful spacious loft for all of your pre-wedding needs.
When trying to decide on locations to do your first look, consider taking your photos right outside the venue. It’s a great way to tell the story of your wedding day, and you’ll gets lots of “ooh’s” and “ahh’s” from tourists. Unsure if you should do a first look? Check out this blog post to help you decide.
The wedding venue is around the corner from the NYPL, an iconic spot for Manhattan wedding photos. It takes about five minutes to walk from the grill to the NYPL steps. Because of its beautiful architecture, the library serves as a very versatile photo spot.
This venue transforms from a trendy midtown restaurant to a gorgeous wedding ceremony and reception space. Just past the bar in the larger interior space is the perfect location for any pre-ceremony traditions, like a Ketubah signing. It’s also a great option for your dinner and dance party.
No worries about down-sizing your guest list when hosting your wedding here; this venue can accommodate up to 220 guests. After your ceremony, consider transforming that space into your cocktail hour location. It’s extremely spacious so there’s plenty of room to mingle with all your closest friends and family, all while eating delicious food.
