We are so happy to share our celebration with you! The non-traditional nature of our relationship has inspired us to celebrate our marriage in a non-traditional way, so the format will be more of a large-but-informal dinner party than a typical wedding format.
Below are some helpful hints that should answer any questions you might have. If you have any additional concerns, feel free to contact us directly.
Ukrainian National Home Ballroom Location – 142 Second Avenue, just south of 9th Street on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. The ballroom is on the 2nd floor. If you will need assistance with the stairs, please let us know in advance so we can have someone available to help.
Parking and Transportation – is usually a challenge given that it is New York City! We recommend taking a cab or alternately public transportation – either the N train to 8th Street/NYU, the 6 train to Astor Place or the F train to Second Avenue will get you within walking distance. The venue is also available via the Second Avenue bus line.
If You Are Flying - we recommend arriving at Newark Liberty International (EWR) Airport. The venue is 3 blocks from the Standard Hotel East Village which is a Supershuttle destination. The extremely affordable Supershuttle buses are available with a reservation directly from any NYC area airport to the Standard East Village (you don’t have to be staying at the hotel to use the supershuttle). More information is available at supershuttle.com and hopstop.com.
If You Are Coming From New Jersey - You can take the NJ Transit train directly to New York Penn Station or the Path train to any downtown station. From there a cab should take less than 15 minutes and cost no more than $15, or you can take the subway as detailed above under “Parking and Transportation”.
Alcoholic Beverages – In keeping with our non-traditional theme, we will be serving coffee, tea, juice, mixers, water and ice at the venue. Any other alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverages that you would like to enjoy can be purchased en route to the venue, two blocks north of the hall at Atmi Liquor Store, 166 2nd Avenue. There will be corkscrews, bottle openers etc. for your convenience.
Seating Charts – Our event will have open seating. Feel free to sit next to someone you haven’t met yet since everyone we’ve invited is family!
Smoking & Vaping – There is a designated area for those who wish to smoke or vape. Please respect our guests with sensitivities and use only the designated area.
