The Ultimate Venue Guide

The Bartow-Pell Mansion Museum  

Southern Transplants

The Bartow-Pell Mansion Museum
As the sun sets over the manicured pebble court behind this 175-year-old Greek Revival mansion, which was built when the Pelham Bay Park area was still considered the country, you’ll probably forget you’re in New York. The terraced gardens can accommodate up to 125. Kitchen access is limited, and be advised: Bathrooms are available only for smaller weddings; if you’re hosting more than 50, you’ll have to rent your own (the venue can suggest a porta-vendor). 895 Shore Rd., nr. Orchard Beach Rd., Bronx; 718-885-1461; bartowpellmansion

The Palm House at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden
This terrarium-like pavilion, situated among the BBG’s 52 acres of bucolic greenery, is an all-weather option that manages to evoke both the serenity of an urban oasis and the decadence of a historic Baton Rouge estate. The building can be configured to fit 100 to 300 seated guests, and the surrounding garden is ideal for brides looking to wed outdoors without the headache (i.e., permits) involved in doing so in a public park. Site fees range from $1,335 to $5,085. Catering is handled in-house; fees start at $130 a head during the day and $150 a head at night, and that includes open bar and staffing. 1000 Washington Ave., at Crown St., Prospect Heights; 718-398-2400;
