A New York Public Library wedding makes a statement. Just walking up the stairs to the newly refurbished facade past the two formidable lions “Patience” and “Fortitude” builds the suspense.

Once inside Astor Hall for the beginning of your wedding reception, the history of the New York Public Library surrounds you. Each photo will be filled with an iconic backdrop, as our New York Wedding photographers are drawn to the huge columns, amazing staircases, and the late 19th century fixtures. The Celeste Bartos Forum features a 30-foot-high domed glass ceiling, the McGraw Rotunda is set beneath arched bays with Corinthian pilasters over 17 feet high and the newly available Governors room is still a place that many people have yet to see.

Every New York Public Library wedding is filled with the visual drama of candlelit stairs, jutting columns and long hallways that fill your wedding photography album with New York grandeur. And you can feel good about your contribution to the institution as it goes straight to serving the public good.
