As you plan your winter wedding in New York, consider selecting a hotel with outdoor space for your venue. This couple married in the Women’s National Republican Club, which serves as a hotel. I’ve married three couples here in the summer, autumn and winter. The hotel offers an elegant space for intimate gatherings that couples can easily rent. Or you could stay here and ask to use the space, which links to an outdoor patio, for your elopement. I believe the staff are lenient about simply letting folks borrow the area for thirty minutes. Since you can be outside or inside, this is an ideal option when the weather is unpredictable.
