Ceremonies and Receptions- Help!

My fiance and I are searching for the perfect place to hold our ceremony and reception. We want to have a very small, modern wedding. About 40 people at the most. The only idea I have are the Botanical Gardens, but i'm not sure how well that will work out for a November wedding.

Any ideas? Advice? Thanks so much in advanced Smile

    I guess it depends on your budget and what 'feel' you are going for. We've been to a few places here in the city and although we started with over 100 guest, we downsized for a more intimate feeling. We were at 40 as well but the venue we like the most has a minimum of 65. At any rate, here is some of what we found....


    Elizabeth  (has an indoor outdoor feel)
    The Park    (has an indoor outdoor feel)
    Cellar Bar
    The Inn @ Irving Place
    Seamen's Church    (has an indoor outdoor feel)
    City Hall Restaurant
    The Ketch
    Astor Center
    Sunset Terrace @ Chelsea Piers  (has an indoor outdoor feel)

    For our personal observation at each site feel free to send me a private message. Some visits were more interesting than others lol.

    One thing to consider is the time of year.  If you're having a small wedding that a nice restaurant could accommodate, you might not want to do it in November, since that's prime time for holiday-related corporate parties.  For example, you could do a reasonably priced wedding downstairs at City Hall restaurant for 40 people, but not in November.
