When you’re a kid, you often think of your dream wedding as a massive event, with hundreds of people, a cake bigger than a chandelier, and a ten-piece band — and while that’s all well and good, many of us grow up to realize that’s… not exactly what we want anymore. The idea of a ton of people (some of whom you hardly know) crammed into a run-of-the-mill event space is already stressful enough, but when you think about having to greet everyone, make tons of small talk, and worry about the day-of logistics, it sounds like a nightmare. That’s why so many couples are opting to throw a boutique wedding, and why wedding venues for small gatherings are in such high demand. If you’re fortunate enough to be tying the knot in The Big Apple, you’re in luck: intimate wedding venues in New York City are some of the best in the country, and we’ve got just the event space for your big day.
