NYC Zoom Weddings – Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What do I need to do before the date of my New York wedding?
Before your big day, it’s important to get a Marriage License. This costs $35 by credit card or money order, payable to the City Clerk. The Marriage License is valid anywhere in New York State for 60 days (or 180 days for active military).
You must wait at least 24 hours after obtaining the Marriage License to have your ceremony.
Q: Is same-sex marriage legal in NYC?
Yes! Actually, it is legal in all 50 United States of America.
Q: Do you have recommendations for NYC Zoom wedding venues?
Randall’s Island is beautiful, with lush greenery and stunning skyline views.
Moreover, Estuary at ONE°15 Brooklyn Marina in Brooklyn Heights is an excellent venue right on the water. They can provide couples with their own private outdoor section — with a tarp if it rains — and access to their private gated marina for photos.
These are just a few ideas for Zoom wedding NYC ideas.
Q: What is your cancellation policy?
Our cancellation policy is as follows:
- Cancellations made at least 30 days in advance receive a 90% refund
- Cancellations made between 73 hours and 29 days out from your wedding time receive a 50% refund
- Cancellations made within 72 hours of your wedding time are non-refundable
Note that low-cost cancellation insurance is available at check-out.
Please keep in mind that photographers block their schedules when a booking is made, turning away other clients to be available for yours. In order to effectively run our business while ensuring photographers are always compensated, we do not provide 100% refunds.
If you need to reschedule please email us at [email protected] and we can try to accommodate as best as we can. As long as your scheduled photographer can accommodate your request, we’re happy to reschedule at no charge.
Please see our Terms & Conditions for full information (section 3).
