Wave Hill is a spectacular wedding venue in the Bronx, and should be on any discerning wedding couple’s “must see” list of potential wedding venues!
Featuring twenty-eight acres of incredible public gardens, Wave Hill can also be rented for wedding ceremonies, cocktail hours, and receptions. As an added bonus, if you get married there, you can take your wedding day portraits on the gorgeous grounds.
I have always been impressed by the meticulous attention to detail at this elegant, peaceful New York venue. Everything from the grounds to the reception decor is always beautifully on point and a joy to photograph.
As a Wave Hill wedding photographer, I have seen so many beautiful celebrations. I have seen brides get ready in the spacious, light-drenched on-site preparation rooms. I have seen couples see each other for the first time on their wedding day in the shade of a towering tree, its’ branches reaching low to the ground to encircle the newlyweds.
I have seen wedding receptions out on a beautiful terrace, shaded by the crisp brightness of a white wedding tent. I have seen candlelit wedding receptions indoors, lit by only the open flame and some delicate up-lighting.
At this particular wedding, candles were simply everywhere. They blanketed the tables, casting the entire reception with their amber glow. This picture was taken at the moment two guests clinked their champagne glasses after a particularly moving toast.
If you are planning your wedding celebration at Wave Hill, I’d love to hear about how you want your day to unfold. I’d love to talk to you about the amazing locations to take your portraits on the grounds of Wave Hill, and to hear about your wedding photography needs. I hope to talk to you and work with you on your wedding!
