The Experience

Whether you live in NYC or will be having a destination wedding, a lot of decisions go into planning the perfect day. We will set-up a time to discuss your ideas and hopes for the day, as well as any logistical challenges or other concerns. (Covid, rain, etc)

By the day of the wedding we will have a plan, but will also be able to make changes as needed. (Say, if a movie decides to film in the location we selected for your ceremony!) An assistant will help carry items and ensure things go as smooth as possible.

As a registered NYC officiant, Kristy can also sign your marriage license or perform a simple ceremony. She can be your back-up officiant or even a witness!




Not sure where to start? Learn about getting married at NYC City Hall, Central Park, or the best portrait locations or where to have an intimate ceremony.

testimonials

- Camille and Henning, May 2019 -

"We had the best elopement ever thanks to Kristy May! She was super professional, fantastic photos, and a joy to spend time with on such a spectacular day - sweet, easygoing, and thoughtful. She made the day a smooth and super enjoyable ride that we will never forget!"

- poorti, dec 2020 -

"Kristy made our photoshoot and wedding ceremony so seamless and we couldn't have asked for a better photographer + officiant. She directed us for the photos when needed, knowing we are camera shy, but also let us be natural and do our thing! With the wedding ceremony as well she understood exactly what were looking for and made it perfect. And captured it all so beautifully in the photos. "

- Anne and michael, December 2018 -

"Kristy and her team were absolutely spectacular to work with. They were so efficient, and captured AMAZING shots, but I never felt that I was being taken away from the main action/fun of the day, which was exactly what we wanted!"

Thank You!
