FAQ

Our team answers the most frequent questions

We decided to elope! What now?
 
Pick a date! Once that is done, we can get started on picking a location for the ceremony, and all the details: picking florals, music, make-up, and hair artists, discussing the ceremony speech, and so on. We love this part because we get to see all the personalized touches that the couple wants to add to their elopement wedding. These little things will make the wedding unique and truly theirs!
How far in advance should we book?
 
As soon as you are ready. Many outside vendors like florists and musicians (and our team as well) get booked a year or two in advance. That is why as soon as you are ready to move forward and book our team, you can do it by putting down a deposit and signing the contract.
What deposit is required to book our date with you?
 
Deposit is 30% of the chosen package is required to secure your date with us.
What do we need to do in order to actually elope in NYC?
 
We are here to help you create your special elopement. In addition to discussing everything over email, we have created a useful blog post for you guys.

Once we receive the marriage license how fast can we be married?
 
Once you receive the marriage license from the City Clerk's Office and 24 hours have passed (check the time stamp on the license) you two can be married by our officiant anywhere in NY.
Will our marriage in NYC be legal in our home country?
 
After you are married by our officiant you will need to go back to the City Clerk’s Office in order to get your marriage certificate and an apostille. The apostille will be proof that your marriage in the US was legal and will be legal in your home country. Allocate enough time for this. Check the hours of the City Clerk’s Office.
How long will it take for our photos and/or videos to be delivered?
 
Within 8 - 14 weeks after the wedding day (this varies on the month).
Can we have the RAW photos & footage?
 
No. We do not give any RAW materials. This is standard in the industry.
Can we change the song in the video?
 
Changing a song requires a whole new edit that takes time. If you would like to change the song in a video there will be a $250 fee.
How large can an elopement wedding be?
 
We like to stay under 20-30 guests. Most of our weddings are under 15 or under 10 people and many couples decide to keep this day purely between themselves.
How many days do we need for everything while we are here in NYC?
 
Great question and one that we get asked a lot. The shortest amount of days that you need to get married and deal with the paperwork is 3 (if you live outside of the US) and 2 if you live in the US.
Will our marriage in the US be legal in our home country?
 
Another frequent question. The clerks at the City Clerk’s office will let you know if you need an apostille (this is an extended version of your marriage certificate). An apostille will make your marriage in the US legal in your home country.
Where can we have our ceremony?
 
Short answer- anywhere in New York! Long answer- it’s up to you and your taste. Do you want to be surrounded by nature, skyscrapers or both? Do you want an industrial backdrop? The city’s skyline? Once your date is booked we can discuss your ideas and we will share our list of locations.
Do we write our own speech for the ceremony?
 
If you prefer to do that, of course! Most of our couples write their own vows and we create the rest of the speech for them.
Can you walk me through the process with the officiant?
 
Our One Wedding House team is small, but mighty. The ceremony is usually about 10-15 minutes. You are able to work on the draft of the speech together with the officiant and add personalized touches to it. You can also either do standard vows or write your own. 
Can we create a custom package?
 
We created these three packages and 97% of our couples pick one of them. However, if you want a custom package, we can create one for you guys.
How many photos do we receive?
 
The amount of photos depends on the amount of "activities" and locations you will have at your wedding. 1 hour of photography usually results in 50 photos. You will receive all good & edited photos in high resolution. The images will be ready in 8-14 weeks after the wedding. 
Can we add more hours of photography/videography coverage?
 
Of course! You can add more hours during the planning process, a week before your wedding day or during your wedding day.

Photography is $500 per hour.
Videography is $500 per hour.
When do you recommend we schedule a meeting with the photographers?
 
We can meet, but because our team is very busy during this season our time is precious and we have to charge 100$/hour. We can schedule a phone call with you and the photographers so you can chat. That's free:) 
We want to add videography to our package.
 
We are happy to let you know that we also offer cinematography services & you can add them to your package.
What photographer is going to capture our day?
 
One of our in-house photographers is going to capture your day. All of our photographers shoot in the same style and the photos are edited in the same style as well.
What type of musician is available for the ceremony?
 
Of course, you can have a violinist perform at your elopement! Violin is very popular, so are guitarists.
What type of transportation is included in the All-in-One package?
 
Transportation is for the couple in the form of an uber, unless you decide to go for something fancy and with additional direct payment get a vintage yellow cab or some other form of transportation. The whole time we are with you transportation in the form of uber is paid for by us.
Are you able to share the hair/makeup artists you work with?
 
We usually share ALL vendors and book them for you once you put down a deposit with us (30% of the package price). The hair and make up artists we work with are very talented and professional people. Majority of the makeup and hair you see in our photos on the website and ig have the hair and make up done by them.
I am interested in doing a hair and make-up trial. Is this possible?
 
Yes! We can arrange a trial for you with a HMUA.
For the bouquet/boutonnière, can we provide ideas of what we'd like?
 
Of course! A few inspo photos are always welcomed. We work with 4-5 trusted florists in NYC. We trust them and always go back to them. The images you provide will be used as INSPO, the florists always state that the bouquet will not look exactly like the ones in your inspo photos because of seasons, our geographical location, the creator and other factors. All of our brides have always been very happy with their floral creations.
Could you provide additional floral such as rose petals & floral arch?
 
Of course, we can discuss this idea with the florist. Any extra goods & services will be covered between the couple and the florist.
How much is videography coverage?
 
The rate is 500$/hour. 3-4 hours of coverage are ideal to capture key moments from the wedding day.
What is the best way to share our inspiration photos with you?
 
You can email a few images of inspo photos for your bouquet and the boutonnière to us or share your Pinterest wedding board. 
Can you share an example of the printed photo album & price?
 
Here is an example of a photo album. One is $1000. The photographer will pick photos he/she thinks are the best, you then have 1 chance to change the photos that he/she chose before the final layout. We completely outsource it and don't make any money from it. But find that our couples love photo albums in this digital day and that's why we offer them.
Are there any hotels near Central Park that you recommend?
 
A lot of our couples who have a Central Park ceremony stay at the 1 Hotel Central Park or at the Concord Hotel. A bit further away & more affordable options are the Sanctuary hotel and Kimpton Ink 48.
