Hi all, i plan to marry this fall--Oct. 7th and i am looking for an outdoor ceremony space and an indoor reception--preferably at the same location but i am open to separate sites. Does anyone know of any sites in the bronx, manhattan, or westchester county. any help is appreciated. thank you and good luck!
I got married at the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx in late September 2008. It has the mix of outdoor/indoor that you're looking for. We were lucky with the weather and were able to do the ceremony outdoors and the reception indoors. Check the October forecasts for this year, and see if this could work for you. Abigail Kirsch does the catering at NY Botanical Garden, and the food was incredible. I highly recommend it! Location is very close to Manhattan.
battery garden restaurant in lower manhattan. Had attended a wonderful outdoor ceremony with the sunset behind the bride and groom since the restaurant is facing west. reception was outdoors as well, then dinner was indoors.
Hilton Garden Inn - Nicotra's Ballroom in Statem Island is where we had our outdoor ceremony and reception. Magnificent venue and highly recommend. Wonderful family owned place. 5 Star *****. We were there Oct of 2011. Felt like being upstate in the country.
We recommend Glen Island Harbour Club in Westchester. We had our reception there and it was AMAZING. It's been over a year and we still get compliments about the food, service and location. Don't know if they do outdoor weddings (we got married in church) but I'm pretty sure they do. Ask for Rocco - he is the BEST! Congrats and good luck!
Try St Peter's church in the Bronx. They are having an outdoor arts festival later this month you can check out the space. They also have a reception hall (arts building) right on the grounds. It is on Westchester Ave next to the 6 train.
