I am a professional wedding celebrant who has officiated weddings all over New York City, and in many other cities. Now, I also do walking tours. I love meeting new people, walking around and sharing my knowledge of NYC. I've lived in NYC since 1992. I have traveled all over Europe and done walking tours in many cities. I refer to my tours as 'Christerical Tours' because I like to keep them fun.

Tour description

New York City Wedding Tour

Thousands of people from around the world come to New York City, and especially to Central Park, to get married and elope: but where are the best places to elope? Which spot has the best views? Which spot is the most private? Which one is near a good restaurant?

Chris Shelley is an experienced New York Wedding Officiant who has been marrying people (to each other) since 2011. He knows all the nooks and crannies of this great city where couples can have small ceremonies. From Central Park to 5th Avenue, Lincoln Center to Grand Central Terminal, Roosevelt Island to DUMBO to the High Line, Chris can show you a variety of wedding locations and the neighborhoods that surround them.
