Any Brooklyn Bridge Park Brides out there?
We just got our permit for Pier 1 in April, and I worry that we should have booked Pebble Beach. I am considering applying for another permit, to book both sites!
Has anyone gotten married here, or are you planning your ceremony here? How did you set up? Did you bring chairs? Did construction interfere?
We are getting married on a Saturday morning, and I kind of worry that random people are going to wander over and gawk/heckle. Should I just let that go?
Ah, I feel better just from posting!
Thanks In Advance

i just did the same thing for our wedding in october! i booked pier 1 but a day later called and changed it to pebble beach after seeing pictures of other ceremonies at pebble beach on the web.
decided to switch b/c it seemed pretty with the water right there, and there is natural seating for those who want to sit.

I’m very familiar w BK Bridge Park, but I’m a little confused as what is Pier 1 and what is Pebble Beach, but all I know is that I found myself in the middle of a wedding under the BK Bridge once, and it was tres awkward haha. It was litterally on the steps/rocks under the bridge – don’t think this is Pier 1 or Pebble Beach so you’re in the clear. But eitherway I recommend having a friend get there early and try to clear you an area free of tourists and onlookers.

Yes your have a permit but its still a public park, so your gonna on lookers regardless. There’s a path right behind the stairs that people use, so just let it go. Sure you can have someone clear some of steps but you can’t prevent people from standing around or sitting on the far ends of the steps or beach either.

My man proposed to me in brooklyn bridge park. We would go there at night and look at the stars and have great heart to hearts. So he chose there to propose! 🙂

Our wedding out on Pier One was AMAZING. Yes, it was so freezing cold and blustery that a guest said I was like a Navy Seal for refusing to wear a coat! But! The views were phenomenal, and it was quiet and private feeling.
I had thought that I wanted to do Pebble Beach, but it is super loud with the trains going by and that huge play ground right next to it, and my mom would not have heard a thing!
We were so happy with the spot! And the pictures are amazing! The Bridge, the Statue of Liberty, Lower Manhattan.
The pictures look amazing from Pebble Beach, too.
I highly highly recommend visiting the site several times before the wedding- there is so much consstruction that it took me a couple visits to wrap my head around all the logistics. It also keeps changing- building new parts, digging up other parts, completing some parts, beginning others. Phew!
For the person who asked- Pier One is right next to the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory, River cafe, walking out onto the water, and away from the Brooklyn Bridge. Pebble Beach is right between the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges.

Has anyone had their wedding at the Empire Fulton Ferry Boardwalk? Considering it since construction will be going on by the Main Street Pebble beach but confused as to where it actually is and concerned about seating
