  oOmrsstopaOo :  I’m also in Buffalo but got married in NYC. Our wedding story went down a little differenly than usual, we got married on Good Morning America. So I did virtually no planning except for the reception and pre-wedding festivities, but I do think it would be simple enough to arrange on your own. I would compare prices. I found my photographer on Thumbtack and got an amazing deal on our pictures. I imagine you could do the same for any services for the big day (bouquet, hair, makeup, etc.). We had our reception at Resette and Azalea in the Theater District was another amazing restaurant that went above and beyond to make our family dinner the night before the wedding very special. We also got amazing pictures right in Times Square so I would recommend it and of course Central Park for pictures. We also took some shots in our hotel lobby, which was beautiful. Feel free to PM me if you’d like!

check out JC Lemon: http://jclemon.com/ 

or cynthiachungphotography.com – your photographer should have an idea of good/fun places for a photoshoot.

Shu’s flowers in soho will be able to come up with a beautiful bouquet for you – just give them a call a little in advance.

makeup: for minimal coordination, order glamsquad to your hotel room the morning of.

will you be eloping at city hall or will you want your ceremonhy elsewhere? The brooklyn botanical garden, the arboretum, cloisters will probably allow you to have a quick small outdoor ceremony. the new york public library would be a great place for a indoor ceremony. remember that you will need to go apply for your license 24 hours in advance before you can sign on the dotted line and get married.

As for food, will you want a space that is fairly private for you to dine or will you want other patrons surrounding you?

upscale but not too hard to get reservations: marea, le cirque, nougatine, jean georges

not super upscale but still very nice and very romantic: la sirene (the one all the way downtown, notto be confused with the one in chelsea)
