WELCOME TO LOVE IN THE TIME OF COVID-19. WHETHER YOU'RE ENVISIONING AN INTIMATE DAY FOR TWO OR A SMALL WEDDING FOR 50, MY ELOPEMENT PACKAGES PROVIDE EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO GET MARRIED. (YES, EVEN IN A PANDEMIC.)
As of June 25, 2021, Governor Cuomo’s Executive Orders 202.20 and 202.21 have expired, meaning that virtual wedding ceremonies are unfortunately no longer a legal option to get married. Instead, couples must now get hitched with an in-person ceremony. See my elopement packages with in-person officiant services and multiple hours of photography, and contact me if you’d like a free consultation!
So how does this work?
Who are you?
Everly Studios is a full-service wedding and elopement photography studio run by Jocelyn Voo, an NYC wedding photographer and — you guessed it! — an ordained NYC wedding officiant. We offer photography services and photo + officiant elopement packages in NYC.
What do your elopement packages include?
First we’ll have a pre-wedding phone consultation to get to know each other and understand exactly what kind of day you’re envisioning. All packages include:
- Professional photography. Coverage includes multiple hours and multiple locations of your choice, and we help you create a day-of schedule to plan the flow of the day.
- NYC officiant services. Whether you want a more upbeat informal ceremony or a more traditional one, all of our registered officiants are ready to deliver a personalized ceremony to celebrate your union.
- Basic wedding planning. Need help with deciding on locations? Need a hair and makeup artist, or a bouquet? Nervous about if it rains? Not sure how to get a marriage license? Don’t know if you need a site permit? We provide all this information and more, all included.
We have a specific New York City elopement idea in mind — can you make it happen?
A stylish Brooklyn rooftop micro wedding? A winter Central Park wedding with snow falling softly around you? A casual, intimate elopement on the Top of the Rock with unobstructed city views? Perfect, let’s chat; whatever your NYC elopement idea is, my elopement packages will probably work, and I’d love to grab some coffee and hear more. If you’re not local, let’s set up a time to FaceTime or Zoom, and we can discuss.
What is the cost?
Elopement packages start at $2,550.
So how do we get our marriage license with the Marriage Bureau still closed due to coronavirus?
If you’re getting married in NYC, here’s the steps to getting a marriage license online via Project Cupid. You will need to get the marriage license at least 24 hours in advance of your ceremony (but no further out than 60 days). Please note, Project Cupid is backed up and appointments are scarce, so I’d recommend checking every Thursday around 9am, when they tend to release appointments. You can also go outside the NYC metro area (such as Long Island and Rockland County) and go to a City Clerk that is open for an appointment. Scarsdale, Town of Greenburgh and Town of Hempstead are all options relatively close to Manhattan.
Will you marry LGBTQ+ couples?
Absolutely, all lovers are welcome here. Same-sex marriages were legalized in New York in 2011, and we are honored to wed any couple in love.
We just made the decision to elope in NYC next week! Do you do last-minute weddings?
Yes, we do! A few months (or more!) is ideal to get everything squared away, but we’ve been able to do last-minute weddings in 10 days or so. Get in touch!
