For newly engaged couples, the days leading to the wedding are both exciting and exhausting. Some couples have the energy to plan everything themselves, while others find it difficult to simultaneously work and plan, often turning to wedding planners for help. New York City residents have more than enough planners to turn to, but one company that ought to stand above the rest on their list should be Wedding Packages NYC.
Wedding officiant Veronica Moya founded Wedding Packages NYC. She saw that there were a lot of couples who opted to get married at City Hall. The process seemed impersonal and lackluster with wedding ceremonies that lacked the intimacy that made the special day memorable. Veronica felt it didn’t have to be that way and set out to create all-inclusive, affordable wedding packages for couples who wanted something special without making such a huge production.
Moya created Wedding Packages NYC in 2015. The company is based in Manhattan and specializes in small, elopement-style weddings for couples looking to get married in New York City. They have various customized wedding packages that include everything one needs to have a small, intimate NYC wedding. Their packages include wedding officiants, photographers, wedding coordinators, and stylists. Wedding Packages NYC also secures venues, Central Park permits, and more.
Despite the many other wedding planning services around the city, Wedding Packages NYC has an advantage for being located in the heart of New York City. They are located just steps away from Central Park, and many of their team members live within walking distance of the park, which is where the majority of their weddings are performed. Wedding Packages NYC has been in the business for more than a decade. They are more than capable of delivering with a team of experienced wedding specialists hand-picked and vetted by Veronica Moya herself.
The business was going wonderfully until the onset of the pandemic forced many companies to shut down. When New York followed suit in mid-March, Veronica panicked. Businesses had been forced to close their doors forever, and she wondered how Wedding Packages NYC would survive. However, love always finds a way.
The New York governor Cuomo passed an executive order in April that allowed couples to apply for online marriage licenses and host virtual weddings. It was exactly the saving grace that Wedding Packages NYC needed to stay afloat. Veronica managed to catapult Wedding Packages NYC into a front runner in the New York wedding industry with the executive order supporting her.
Since then, Moya has built a robust online presence with informative and detailed YouTube videos that explain how couples can obtain a New York marriage license and the process of getting married in New York City. Successful in keeping Wedding Packages NYC afloat, they have adapted to the times and even offer drive-thru weddings in front of Wedding Packages NYC’s Manhattan building with its circular driveway or in the middle of its garden-style courtyard. Wedding Package NYC has performed countless Zoom weddings.
Wedding Packages NYC has not adapted to the pandemic; they also recently opened “The Wedding Chapel” on the Upper Westside of Manhattan. The Wedding Chapel resembles a Las Vegas-style wedding chapel and provides an option to get legally married in a more private and intimate setting. The venue is ideal for couples who prefer to be married in private and is close in proximity to the park, making it a perfect alternative for rainy days.
