Weddings in the Parks

Wedding in Brooklyn Bridge Park

Wedding ceremonies can be conducted in any of the parks, but doing so requires a permit. To apply for a Special Events permit and learn about Parks rules for special events, visit the Special Events permit page or contact the borough permit offices:
