Common Ground Ceremonies specializes in the most spectacular weddings New York City has to offer. Designing magical ceremonies for a variety of unions, including interfaith weddings, non-denominational, lesbian and gay weddings and non-traditional weddings, Common Ground has worked in some of the most breathtaking and coveted wedding locations throughout the city.
Join us as we explore some of the most enchanted wedding venues that Reverend Samora, ordained minister and wedding officiant of common grounds, has worked with!
Giando on the Water is a hidden gem in the South End of trendy Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Recently, Reverend Samora performed a beautiful outdoor ceremony in early June on Giando’s outdoor deck. The views from the deck are not only picture-perfect, but the spectacular service and friendly staff made the event even more memorable. This recommended wedding venue is perfect for any couple looking for views of the Manhattan skyline.
And for the couples looking for a more affordable wedding venue with a city ceremony, located on the West Side of Manhattan at Chelsea Piers is the Sunset Terrace. This remarkable location has been celebrating weddings, anniversaries and birthday parties for the past three years. With panoramic Hudson River views, the Terrace is a beautiful spot for a sunset ceremony. Sunset Terrace offers affordable, all-inclusive packages and is an ideal venue for small, intimate weddings with 75 to 125 people. For a truly unique experience, why not incorporate ice-skating into the celebration, as it is located in The Sky Rink!
The Metropolitan Building is also a beautiful location for weddings and other events, located in the industrial area of Long Island City, NY. In 1980, Eleanor Ambos, an antique collector and owner of a furniture rental company, restored the building. Reverend Samora has performed an interfaith ceremony in the building’s fourth floor space that offers a rustic atmosphere with wide-open space that can be transformed into a wedding wonderland. Each floor has its own unique quality with unique props and statues around every corner.
