About: Wagner Cove is one of Central Park's lesser-known treasures. This small location on the edge of The Lake is punctuated by a rustic shelter with two wooden benches. This secluded spot is ideal for a proposal or a very intimate wedding ceremony. This oasis is just west of Cherry Hill and East of the 72nd Street and Central Park West entrance to the park. It is east of Strawberry Fields and within close walking distance to popular landmarks such as Bethesda Fountain Terrace and Bow Bridge.

Two spots in front of the bridge and one behind it. This particular location gives you a great opportunity to have the best of both worlds. You can be with nature and have a lot of green in your photos while also get some wonderful shots by the iconic Plaza hotel, and the always busy 5th Ave.

About: One of the most iconic Central Park landmarks, Bow Bridge is one of the most visited, filmed, and photographed areas in Central Park & provides stunning photo opportunities for wedding ceremonies and wedding photography. It can be very busy, especially on weekends, so it does not offer as much privacy as other Central Park locations. But there are really neat landing spots behind and in front of the bridge where you could have your ceremony. Watch the video to give you an idea of what to expect:

About: Central Park's Ladies Pavilion is a secluded spot located near 77th Street on the west side of the park, next to The Lake. The Pavilion's antique-style construction, location, and beauty have made it one of the most sought-after park locations for special events, especially weddings ceremonies and photo shoots. It is located in a more secluded area of Central Park and offers protection from the elements, meaning you can hold your ceremony rain or shine!

About:  Chambers Landing is a beautiful and secluded little spot by the lake with an amazing view of the New York Skyline. It's only a few short steps away from Ladies Pavilion but it's much more private. As you can see in the video the steps leading into the landing make it more exclusive and intimate than any of the other landings spots in the Park. This has become my personal favorite spot! Romantic, cute & intimate.

About: Central Park's Bethesday Terrace is on two levels, united by two grand staircases and a lesser one that passes under Terrace Drive to provide passage southward to the Elkan Naumburgbandshell and The Mall, of which this is the architectural culmination, the theatrical set-piece at the center of the park. Featured in countless films, Bethesda Fountain Terrace is one of the most popular locations for a Central Park wedding, including mine (video below). Since the fountain is centrally located in the park, it’s within walking distance of tons of great photo opportunities such as Cherry Hill and Bow Bridge. Hold your ceremony by the fountain or under the shelter of the Lower Passage with its beautiful mosaic tiled ceiling above.

About:  Cop Cot means "little house on the crest of the hill" in Scottish.

Cop Cot Is one of the older structures in Central Park; It has a circular shape which makes it a really nice and romantic spot for a wedding ceremony. We have performed quite a few ceremonies here; some with little to no people and others with a really large crowd. I think that if you have a large number of guests this is an ideal spot for your ceremony, specially if you have some elderly folks who need to sit down during the ceremony. Cot Cop can be found at 59th Street in the middle of the park, not far from 6th Ave. The structure is located on the top of a small hill, I hope this video can help you get a better idea of what to expect.

About: Shakespeare gardens, created out of reverence for the bard, can be found throughout many locations in both the US and Britain. Of these gardens, one of the most famous is that found in Central Park, where it is located on the West Side of the park and 79th street. The Garden covers four acres of plants that change according to season. It has a beautiful staircase which is perfect for the Bride to make an proper entrance. You can see this in the little video I made with my phone:
