New York City recently became the sixth and largest state to legalise gay marriage.
This historic occasion is likely to turn the Big Apple into a hot spot wedding destination for same-sex couples across the country, and we thought it would be fitting to post some of the city’s best places to say “I do.”
For a romantic, iconic wedding locale, the Plaza is hard to beat.
The in-house wedding planner, Emily Reifel, is the best of the best, and can arrange everything from hair and makeup, to photographers, to florists (and more).
And after a recent multi-million-dollar renovation, the Grand Ballroom Foyer is as grand as ever.
The 24-hour butler service ensures that couples feel pampered post I-dos: the butler can unpack luggage, stock the room's private bar, and draw baths.
The Trump SoHo New York offers three venues, each exuding a slightly different ambiance.
One thing's the same, though -- each has floor-to-ceiling windows, and one has excellent panoramic views.
They can fit from 90 to 240 guests, so couples can choose an intimate ceremony or a grander celebration.
The Spa at Trump SoHo, which is on the 2011 Conde Nast Hot List, offers complete pre-wedding spa packages as well as salon services for brides and bridal parties.
The Roof Club and Garden at the uber-chic Gramercy Park Hotel is the ideal spot for a wedding.
With sweeping views of the city and a retractable roof for summer months, the venue can accommodate up to 120 guests for a ceremony, seated dinner, and a reception with dancing.
Though the hotel does not allow a live band to perform, the special events team can recommend DJs at several price points.
And you can rest assured that you've made a star-approved choice -- many celebrities frequent the Roof Club, and Humphrey Bogart got married at the hotel in 1926.
Hosting a wedding almost once a week, The Pierre has extensive experience with nuptials.
This iconic hotel offers six lavish venues for the ceremony and reception -- including the Salon, complete with rotunda and trompe de l'oeil paintings, where Ramona Singer of Real Housewives fame renewed her vows on camera.
But be prepared to pay a hefty fee for the top-notch accommodations and exceptional white-glove service, because weddings at The Pierre do not come cheap.
If you're planning an opulent wedding, The Peninsula New York may be just the venue you're looking for -- nearly every surface of the hotel is gilded, coated in marble, or flourished with something French.
An on-site consultant will help you plan your one-of-a-kind nuptials or you can opt for the wedding package, which includes a one-night stay for the newlyweds in the bridal suite -- and a one-night stay on the couple's one-year anniversary!
