Central Park Boathouse Wedding
If you’re seeking the quintessential New York experience for your big day, then having a Central Park boathouse wedding is a great move! Loeb Boathouse is an urban oasis nestled just steps from Central Park. It’s the only Manhattan venue situated lakefront where guests can gaze at spectacular city views all while watching rowboats drift on the lake, as they’ve done for over 150 years.
Pro- tip: You can also hire a gondola to take you around for portraits.
Popularity for boating on the lake began in the 1860’s and increased demand called for a more permanent facility on the property. In 1872, a beautiful two-story Victorian structure was built. Over the years the boathouse took on many forms and in 1954, with a generous donation by Carl M. Loeb and his wife Adeline, they helped create the Loeb Boathouse that stands today. This iconic gem took centerstage as the backdrop in the classic film, When Harry Met Sally.
The Lake Room and adjacent deck with picturesque views of the lake are available for all of your private event needs including weddings, corporate events, and Bar/Bat Mitzvahs. Looking to ease some of the stress of planning?
The Central Park Boathouse includes its own catering, prepared by Executive Chef John Greeley. His vast number of worldwide appearances are due to his incredible culinary talents and one-of-a-kind cooking style. Central Park Boathouse also supplies all the necessary tables & seating for your event. Plus, we can’t say enough about their exceptional staff whose level of hospitality is one of our favorites.
Guests can take a stroll of the property for a chance to witness the indigenous birds who call the lake home or experience the over twenty-six species of butterflies documented on the property. Whether you’re planning an intimate event or an over the top soiree, Loeb Central Park Boathouse offers an authentic experience for you and your guests.
