Bethesda Terrace is considered the heart of Central Park.
In their original plan, designers Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux envisioned a sweeping Promenade (the Mall) that led to a grand terrace overlooking the Lake. The magnificent carvings represent the four seasons and, on the side facing the Mall, the times of day.
Today, the Central Park Conservancy employs a sculptor to care for the sandstone carvings and sculpture and a zone gardener and their crew to take care of the landscapes. In the summer, aquatic plantings such as water lilies and lotus are placed in the fountain, reviving a 19th century tradition.
Located at Terrace Drive. This Vintage Cast Iron Fountain and breathtaking Terrace is the heart of Central Park.
Same Sex Marriages and renewal of vows services are available.
With all our weddings we apply for a park permit - this guarantees you the location at a certain time. For this location the maximim people we can pull a permit for is up to 25 ppl.
We do however, suggest that if the Bride & Groom are coming seperatley and your party is over 10 people and you feel like you need more assistance that you add a coordinator to any of our packages.
Weddings are performed Monday to Thursday, 10am - 2pm. Bookable though the 2017. Friday there is an additional supplement.
We can offer a rain back up at an additional cost or we can perform it in your accomodation.
Please be advised that we are unable to guarantee a park pemit if the wedding is booked within 45 days as the Parks Department does not issue park permits within 45 days of a wedding - you would have to wait at your requested location until it was free
We do not guarantee a date or time until we have pulled and recieved back a park permit for your wedding in Central Park.
When you are dealing with public area like Central Park, changes do have to sometime happen and couples really need to take this into account when booking this type of wedding.
