Getting married is pretty scary when you do it the regular way. Travelling to the other side of the world and getting married at a venue you have never seen before with a planner/officiant & photographer you have never met before, is definitely scary. But Ultimate Weddings USA made the whole thing so relaxed.
They phoned me at home in the UK to go over details and double checked everything to make sure that we were happy. They happily let us do our own vows for the ceremony, all the questions I had were answered quickly and cheerfully via email. They even arranged for us to have 90 minutes of photography instead of 1 or 2 hours without any quibble.
When we arrived in NYC they phoned us in our hotel to go over the plans, it certainly made us feel relaxed and in the loop. Sandy took us to City Clerk office and all the legal stuff was sorted out any hassle.
The big day was relaxed and happy. They sorted a taxi to take us to the venue, introduced us to Aaron our photographer (who was great), and led us straight to the Top of the Rock. Ceremony was perfect and intimate with just us and the view. We couldn't have asked for more. Then we went and took photos around Times square, which was really fun.
I would do it again tomorrow if I could, and I really do recommend it to anyone. I have never felt more happy and relaxed, in a nervous " Oh wow, I'm about to get married" way.
A massive thank you to Ultimate Weddings USA. We had the most amazing day.

Marisa and Sandy are incredible planners and made our day unforgettable. Marisa was always on hand to answer any questions and made us feel so comfortable throughout. From touching down in New York, Marisa and Sandy were there every step of the way, taking us to the City Clerks Office and explaining the subway, running through the order of the ceremony, even carrying my purse on the day of the wedding! I can’t recommend Ultimate USA Weddings enough, our wedding was absolutely perfect and I’m already trying to convince my other half to renew our vows in a few years ;-) Lauren & Chris xxx

First class service from Marisa and Sandy. Everything was organised perfectly and Marisa went above and beyond to provide us with information and additional services such as restaurant suggestions, hair, make-up, photographer and a fantastic piper to make our day special. All correspondence with Marisa was quick and professional which put us both at ease. Our family and friends all commented it was the most relaxed wedding they had ever attended! I cant recommend their service high enough...Thanks again for all your efforts

Marisa & Sandra made our dream wedding in NYC a reality. They both couldn’t do enough for us & kept in continuous contact to ensure arrangements were organised as we are from the UK. On arrival to NYC they met us and went over the arrangements for the big day with a lovely bottle of bubbly given! On the day they helped to get me ready, and we’re with us every step of the way even to photos in Times Square too! They even carried my purse!! I can’t recommend them enough & would trust them a million percent! Wonderful friendly people who made our special day one we’ll always look back on with happiness!!

Wow Marisa and Sandra are the most amazing wedding planners. Right from when i sent the email and getting a response back within 30mins with wedding packages and prices was just amazing. We had been in contact with them each month and when we arrived in New York and met Marisa to go to city hall that was a great help in that. Then the day of the wedding it all went to plan. The photos are just lovely and can't wait to show to family and friends. We could have not done this on our own and thank you to you both.

Marisa & Sandy were amazing. They took care of everything and the day went as planned and was completely stress free. Communication was excellent and we felt comfortable that everything was taken care of. Not once did we have to worry or wonder what was happening. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The hairdresser and photographer were excellent, both very friendly and professional. I requested quite a specific flower for the bouquet and buttonhole and the team delivered, very pleased! Photos and marriage license arrived with us quickly after we had returned to the UK. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ultimate USA Weddings, they gave us excellent customer service from start to finish. A very special day delivered by the most lovely of people.

My wife and I are on cloud nine and still climbing. The team at ultimateusaweddings did us proud. Sandy and Marisa made planning a wedding a few thousand miles away so easy. 5 hour time difference made no difference to these ladies. no matter what we asked there was always a quick response. Professional, friendly and humorous all in one. Would I choose ultimateusaweddings again to renew our vows in the future in a heart beat I would. Would I recommend them, most definitely in a New York minute.
Kate · Married on 06/05/2018
Marisa and Sandy were absolutely wonderful in helping to arrange our wedding. We had lots of contact prior to our big day in New York. Marisa was always on hand to answer any queries and deal with last minute requests and even despite the time difference always got back to us really quickly. The wedding was magical, exactly what we wanted but even more special than we could have imagined, which is all down the organisation of Marisa and Sandy. I would highly reccomend them.
Jessica · Married on 06/03/2018
They made our big day perfect for us. So helpful and organised. We live in England so planning a wedding in New York was very daunting. But they were able to make everything stress free for us.
Charlotte · Married on 05/07/2018
We can not rate Marisa & Sandy highly enough. From start to finish everything was perfectly arranged. Because the weather was so nice they even let us change our venue to Central Park the day before. They recommended & arranged the photographer(Aaron) Hair & make-up (Sarah) & our wedding meal (Robert) all were great,professional & better then we could ever of imagined!!!!!! From start to finish the whole day was amazing & unforgettable. Thank you :)

Marisa and Sandy organised (and officiated at) my wife and I's recent wedding in Central Park (Ladies Pavilion) and they were exceptional! We could not recommend them enough. We came over from the UK for it (only had a 5 day period in NYC) so had Skype video calls and numerous emails back and forth in advance which was really helpful. They arranged everything how we wanted it and their input was invaluable in helping us make decisions on certain things we were unsure of. On the day everything went exactly as planned - I'm a bit of a control freak so that was a huge relief to me. Their photographer was also excellent and we love the pictures that we have as memories of our wedding in New York - different to anything we could have got in the UK (we also received the link to our pictures within 8 days which was far quicker than we expected). We fully recommend getting married in NYC and using Marisa and Sandy to plan and officiate your day.
Nathalie · Married on 04/11/2018
A day of perfection - Our experience of getting married in New York exceeded our expectations due to the seamless organisation and stress free day as a result of everything Marisa, Sandy & Aaron put into our day. I can not express enough how much I enjoyed and cherished our day, I thought about nothing and just got caught up in the magic and fun of it all. Marisa's vision of our day and Aaron's capture of this wonderful city ensured we experienced and have the best memories of New York. Our day was so surreal in that we were overwhelmed by the spirit of the people of New York who congratulated us and embraced us on our journey through the city. Thank you to Marisa, Sandy & Aaron, we cannot stress enough how grateful and appreciative we are of everything you done for us. Xx

Our wedding in Central Park was perfect and stress free thanks to Marisa and Sandy. We would do it all over again in a heartbeat!
Rebecca · Married on 02/21/2018
Marisa was amazing and so was Sandy at our wedding on 2/22/18 in New York. Everything was perfect. Thank you for making our wedding possible.

Excellent enthusiastic professional service!
Couldn’t rate them highly enough - I would recommend ultimate USA weddings to anyone looking for a stress free perfect day.

These are stunning photos and an amazing venue. My favorite place to buy wedding gifts and decor I always go to www.5thavestore.com. Check them out they are amazing!

Marisa has been an absolute dream to work with. Planning a wedding from 4000 miles away sounds tricky, but she made everything so easy and smooth. She’s so incredibly professional and friendly, and patient with even the smallest or seemingly silliest of questions! She made both of us feel unique and special, and while she does this kind of thing every day we definitely didn’t feel like ‘just another wedding’. She guided us through the process as though it was a special occasion for her and the company, too, which just made things even more exciting for us both! She’s absolutely one of my favourite people ever! She consistently went over and above for us both. Marisa’s twin sister Sandy, our officiant, wrote a beautiful ceremony which we then adapted and changed to make it unique to us. She’s an absolute doll, too, and although we hadn’t spoken to her at all before we flew out, she greeted us at our hotel like old friends (and even brought her fur baby Henry)! I would recommend a hair trial 100% because a) you get to play with your wedding day look until you’re completely happy with it which makes it more relaxing on the morning of the wedding and b) you get to spend even more time with Sarah, the hair and make up artist - she is such a beautiful person and is just so talented! Our guitarist Frank Perisco was amazing. His voice carried so beautifully through Central Park and we felt like we were in a film with our very own soundtrack. The flowers were GORGEOUS - so much so, I’ve brought them home with me and dried the petals! I cannot put into words how happy James and I both are to have put our trust into this amazing company to plan and deliver the most special day of our lives - and want to say the biggest, most special thank you to Marisa for sharing in our excitement for the past year, and to Marisa and Sandy for sharing - genuinely - in our joy on the day. It was the best day of our lives - a dream made true by Ultimate USA Weddings! Thank you so much!

Me and my husband got married at Top of the Rock. It's definitely our favourite place/view in New York.
I'm so glad we booked with Ultimate USA Weddings. Marisa was our wedding planner, she was great and sorted everything for us. Booking was easy, and any queries were answered efficiently via email. We had a couple of telephone conversations with Marisa, during which we organised things like bouquet colour etc.
Shortly after arriving at our hotel, Marisa came to meet us for a chat and presented us with a lovely gift. We were then escorted down to the City Clerk office to obtain our marriage licence.
Our wedding day was totally stress free. Marisa had organised for a lovely lady called Sarah to come to our hotel room to do my hair and make-up. An SUV picked us up at our hotel and brought us to the Rockefeller Center. Our photographer was already there to start taking photos of our arrival. The staff at Top of the Rock were lovely and allowed us to skip the queue in order to go up for our ceremony. Our wedding officiant (Marisa's sister) did a great job.
We had lots of amazing photos taken, and only had to wait a week to see them via Dropbox.
Marisa had booked us a table at The Roberts, where we had a window seat with a stunning view.
The day was amazing, it was exactly what we wanted. Our marriage certificate arrived in the post this week, so I can start making it official that I'm Mrs Clark.
James · Married on 11/16/2017
We are a couple from the U.K. and recently got married in Central Park New York! We are really happy we chose Ultimate Weddings USA to organise our Wedding. They were professional and friendly and provided us with plenty of information along the way. Being from the U.K. we were unsure about how to go about getting married in New York, however ultimate Weddings USA made the whole process straightforward and easy. We would like to thank them for making our day feel special.

What can we possibly say? Marisa and Sandy minimized a lot of the stress involved in our relatively short timeline, and made the actual day absolutely stress-free. They deftly handled our endless emails and customization requests, and made an exceptional effort to get to know us and make sure that our wedding day was exactly what we wanted.
We had a relatively easy (I think) time as we were just coming down from Canada - there was less to worry about with regards to travel, logistics, language, legality - but if they put in that much effort with us, you can rest assured that any hurdles you'll come upon will be handled.
From the phone call a few weeks in advance, to the planning session and wedding license pickup a couple of days before, they made it very obvious that everything was going to go off without a hitch. On the actual day - that's exactly what happened.
We were married at Wagner Cove in Central Park - a perfect, private location, a short walk from the 72nd St. and Central Park West entrance to the park. Do NOT write off this location because it's less well-known.
We opted for a second hour with Lina as our photographer - it was well worth it! We had time to take pictures at several locations in Central Park, as well as the Love Sign and an hour in Times Square. Like Marisa and Sandy, don't underestimate Lina - if she needs to kick some butt to keep things rolling on schedule, she'll do it!
The entire day went perfectly, and we owe a significant debt of gratitude to Ultimate USA Weddings. As a sign of just how well they managed to plan, even things they had no way of planning worked out - my wife's shoes not only matched the vintage cab we arranged, but also the roses that were ordered.
I cannot recommend Marisa, Sandy, and the team at Ultimate USA Weddings highly enough - if you are getting married in New York City, you need them on your side.

Nous sommes de Montreal au Canada et nous désirions nous marier à New York en toute intimité, en toute simplicité, mais avec classe. Nous avons choisi Sandra et Marisa pour planifier et célébrer notre mariage à New York. La célébration a eu lieu à Central Park près de Gapstow Bridge. La journée a été parfaite tout comme l’organisation qui a précédé la cérémonie. Dès le premier contact avec Sandra, la confiance s’était installée. Marisa et Sandra ont répondu sans délai à toutes nos questions avant le grand jour.
Nous avons séjourné à l’hôtel Nylo NYC dans Upper West Side, le meilleur hôtel que nous avons eu à NYC!!! Les chambres de type « loft » possèdent une immense terrasse privée, ce qui est TRÈS rare à New York.
Le jour de la célébration, une coiffeuse/maquilleuse s’est déplacée à notre chambre d’hôtel afin de coiffer et maquiller la mariée, le résultat était impeccable! Le tout sans stress. Marisa est venue à l’hôtel nous accompagner pour se rendre à Central Park.
La célébration a été réalisée par Sandra et Marisa a été le témoin. Le photographe, Aaron, est assurément un des meilleurs photographes de mariage et il connait Central Park, il connait les endroits cachés qui font en sorte que les photos prises soient parfaites!
Bien qu’au départ nous avions certaines craintes d’aller nous marier à NYC, le tout s’est fait au-delà de nos attentes et d’une simplicité. Marisa et Sandra sont dynamiques, humaines, souriantes et c’est très agréable de faire affaire avec eux. Une fois l’évènement terminé, elles font le suivi concernant les photos et le certificat de mariage. Service impeccable!!!
Merci Marisa et Sandra !

We cannot thank Marisa and Sandy enough for arranging our special day, it was absolutely perfect. They are both fab at what we do. The venue at the Conservatory Gardens in Central Park was stunning. We arranged everything from home in the UK and had no doubts that absolutely everything would be perfect. They provided support and assistance from start to finish. I would highly recommend them to anyone.
Louisr · Married on 09/23/2017
We can't thank Marisa and Sandy enough for our wonderful wedding in Central Park, from start to finish they were so friendly and professional, we really couldn't have asked for anything more , we would recommend them to anyone. Thank you so much once again, from Louise and Paul xx
Joanne · Married on 09/14/2017
Ultimate USA Weddings organised our wedding for us in September 2017. As we live in the UK and were getting married in the US, we felt a little out of control of proceedings. We needn't have worried as Marisa and her team had everything covered.
The day, and everything leading up to the day was organised to perfection. Sarah, who did our hair and beauty did an excellent job (considering what she had to work with) and the photos that Aaron took were gorgeous.
The ceremony itself was beautiful, with a beautiful venue. If it hadn't been to Marisa organising transport at the last minute, we might not have made it! Above and beyond.
Thank you again for making our day perfect.
