It all began on a Saturday afternoon in September at Dutch Fred's in Manhattan. Two strangers who agreed to meet for "a drink" turned into an entire afternoon. As they parted - he to shop for a new motorcycle helmet and she to meet up with friends from out of town - they both hoped this was the beginning of something fun, something important, but they didn't know it was the beginning of the rest of their lives.


House of the Redeemer 7 E 95th St,
New York, NY 10128


Getting in

We recommend flying into LGA or JFK airports. EWR is also an option though extra tolls and fees will apply.

If flying into LaGuardia, we recommend taking a taxi or ride-share service. We recommend taking the AirTrain to Jamaica Station if you are flying into JFK. From there you can take the subway into Manhattan. Taxis and ride-shares are also available from JFK.

Where to stay

Here are a few hotel options that are close to our venue:

OMNI Berkshire Place
(where the Bride and Groom are staying)

Courtyard New York Manhattan/Upper East Side

The Franklin New York

Hotel Elysee by Library Hotel Collection

The Lucerne Hotel

Arthouse Hotel

Getting to the ceremony

The closest subway stop is 96th Street Station. The 6 train stops at this station.

Taxi and ride-share services are always available.

A Citibike or stroll through Central Park would also be lovely on an October afternoon.

Things to do

House of the Redeemer is steps away from New York's iconic Central Park, The Guggenheim Museum, and Museum of the City of New York.
