I am getting married in Weehawken, NJ overlooking the Manhattan Skyline. The views from my site are unmatched. Floor to ceiling windows, everything I could ever want for my wedding. I am having trouble deciding how to incorporate NYC into my wedding. The colors are black and white, deep purple peonie roses with hydrengias and candelabras. I wanted to book a charicature artist instead of a photo booth, as it is something that is directly associated with NYC. I love the city and travel there often. I always associate Times Square with charicature artists. Is this a cheesy incorporation of NYC? My guest list is 100, and we also have a live jazz band, full self serve candy bar, and a photo station ( my photog is setting up a backdrop and a push to take camera) We are having a 5 course dinner as well. Is this too informal? I tend to like the off beaten path.

I wouldn’t actually make that connection (and I lived in Boston and visited NYC all the time for 7 years). But, I think it could be really fun!

I think it’s fun and unique. You should go for it!

I’ve had a charicature artist at a birthday party before and it was fun, everyone loved having a picture to take home. It will take a long time for 100 guests to get pictures, though, so can you have more than one artist?

I think it fits great. I went to a formal christmas party this past year and they had one and everyone enjoyed it. But I agree, you might have to have more than one.
You could also have a palm reader? That reminds me of NYC streets as well.
Also, even if you have an open bar, you should make the Manhattan your signature drink or something along those lines to incorporate NYC more.

I think we’re venue twins! I’m also getting married overlooking the New York City skyline (I’m grew up in NY and fiance grew up in NJ, so this place was a brilliant compromise). I think all the ideas are great. Fiance and I work in Theatre so as a nod to our careers (and NYC), I plan to have Broadway Playbills of the shows we’ve worked on as our table numbers.
