Looking for micro wedding venues in NYC for your upcoming minimony? We’re glad to hear it since that’s precisely what we at Peerspace share with you below! The intimate nature of a micro wedding not only comes with less stress but a Covid-safe up-and-coming trend. While the ceremony may be small, it gives way to a mighty venue and presentation. After all, 300 people would be difficult to orchestrate on a highrise balcony in Manhattan or on a boat sailing down the Hudson.
Choosing the right venue is one of those challenges key to a beautiful execution of a wedding. In NYC, the myriad of options can be overwhelming. Breaking the multitude of locations down into themes, like a riverboat with a Financial District backdrop, eases that anxiety. So, let us meander down that wedding planning list and make choosing micro wedding venues in NYC a whole lot easier.
1. Queens from a rooftop
Commencing the list is a beautiful rooftop in the heart of Queens. With summer fast approaching and warm weather hitting Queens once again, a rooftop micro wedding in NYC might be the way to go. This large space can be transformed from a breathtaking ceremony to an enthralling reception. Working in that creativity and New York magic into the wedding will shine through, elevating spirits well beyond the height of the rooftop terrace.
One of the best parts about using Peerspace is that you can read reviews left by previous renters before booking a space. Here’s an example of a user review for this Queens rooftop: “Amazing experience!!! Aside from this venue being so beautiful the owners Rego and his wife were incredible hosts. They both really go above and beyond to help you bring everything you imagine come together. Highly recommend anyone that’s looking to throw a great and stress free party to book with them! You won’t regret it.” Book it here on Peerspace!
2. Contemporary opulence
Situated in the heart of midtown Manhattan is a hidden expanse of luxury and class. This venue breathes refined quality with its spacious capacity for both ceremony and dining. Yet this venue keeps giving, with added terraces on either side, gifting guests with the option of ceremony location and unique photo opportunities. The marble features mixed with the gray pillar offer contemporary stylistic elements. All this amounts to injections of sophistication amongst artistic themes, making a prime micro wedding venue in NYC.
In the words of a Peerspace reviewer: “The space was amazing and exactly as pictured. The views were great and my guests were all pleased. Shannen was above and beyond. She was so responsive and helpful with recommendations for rentals needed for the space. I would absolutely book again and recommend them to colleagues in NYC.”
3. Refined history
The magic of this NYC mansion is in its history. Built in 1853, this shabby chic textured, sculpture-filled mansion brings character to any wedding. The old rustic nature of these walls provides depth in the form of history. Grand circular dining tables invoke royalty, making dining a refined art. From exposed brickwork in the living areas to the outdoor swimming pool, this palace has modernism woven into its refined history.
Each floor carries new waves of unique design — some brimming with artwork and others with period furniture. A micro wedding here seems like another world compared to others. And you can book it right here.
4. Victorian vows
Another micro wedding venue in NYC goes back to Victorian Britain. This house sits large and modest in Bogota, New Jersey, a 20-minute drive from the heart of midtown Manhattan. The impressiveness of the bright blue house extends to its modern interior.
Although all of that is overshadowed by the rear of the house and the subsequent garden. Teaming with an abundant mixture of flowery plant life, the garden emits a peaceful amenity. The summery garden transcends the hustle and bustle of NYC, with the pinnacle of beauty situated at the center with the archway feature. The tranquil beauty of this venue will squash any stress of planning a micro wedding in NYC. Book it on Peerspace.

6. A tasty Tribeca affair
Catering can always be a hassle to plan on the day of the wedding. But, a venue that provides in-house catering within its rustic setting solves that. We love this rustic event space and think it’s one of the best micro wedding venues in NYC since you get food, florals, and ambiance all in one spot. And don’t forget about that beautiful golden archway against the brick wall backdrop. It’s jaw-droppingly perfect for that ceremonial reading of the vows.
And this Peerspace review doesn’t hurt it either: “Cafe Atelier was amazing and Alice was incredibly friendly and helpful. She communicated throughout the planning phase and everything was executed beautifully. My company had an excellent time and we’ll definitely be back for their delicious coffee & cozy atmosphere. Highly recommend!” Learn more on Peerspace.
7. Beach access *Mic Drop*
Where to begin. Maybe it is best to start by admiring the modern beauty in the mansion’s architecture as you stroll towards a secluded beach. Or maybe the heated pool and private patio is more appealing.
Either way, this venue packs a seriously luxurious punch. Internally, the walls are spirited with contemporary paintings and artwork, generating stunning views as a backdrop to the ceremony. Exuberance and existential indulgence perforate each corner of this property. Learn more and book it here.
8. Rooftop perfection

A Peerspace user who held their engagement party here shared the following review: “What an absolute hidden gem! My Fiancé and I spent a lot of time researching where we should have our engagement party for ~40 people and as soon as we saw this space we knew it was perfect! The space is really beautiful and well kept and comes equipped with tables, chairs, umbrellas and string lights! Irina was very easy to work with when coordinating timing with our bartender and catering delivery. Our friends couldn’t believe we found this space right in the heart of union square, would recommend to anyone.”
9. Disco, anyone?
A restaurant/night club may not leap to mid when considering micro wedding venues in NYC. However, a restaurant with impeccable style, bar and stage areas with vibrant dancy styling, and a dining area filled with leather banquette seating; all portray versatility and exquisite design.
The unique rooftop terrace is semi-open, perfect for a summer micro wedding in NYC. The terrace transforms in the evening from vibrant to exotic tranquility.
