• What Do We Need to Get a Marriage License in NYC?

    If you plan to get married in NYC at the Statue of Liberty or are planning an Ellis Island wedding, then you will need a marriage license. Keep in mind that you must wait for 24 hours after receiving your license before you can get married, unless you receive a judicial waiver, so be sure to obtain your license well in advance of your Ellis Island wedding.

    You can start the marriage license process online, but to obtain a license, you and your prospective spouse must appear together at the Office of the City Clerk. You will need to complete an application and provide a government-issued ID. If your ID does not list your birth date, then you will need proof of age as well. After you sign an affidavit claiming that the information on your application is true, your license will be issued while you wait.

  • Setting an Agenda for Your Corporate Event

    If you’re planning a corporate event, a strong agenda is an essential part of ensuring the event’s success. Whether you’re planning a corporate party, corporate dinner, or annual meeting, your agenda sets the framework for the entire occasion. After you select your corporate event theme, here is what you need to know about setting your agenda.

    Decide on a few goals you want to accomplish at your event, so you can focus on creating an agenda around that mission. Your agenda should include a mix of larger group announcements and presentations and small, breakout sessions that let employees work together in teams. Include ample time for small breaks, so employees don’t get burned out. Schedule a timeline for all portions of your agenda and make sure the activities fit into it, so you can stay on track and so employees know what to expect.

    For corporate awards night parties, company dinners, and other corporate events, let Evelyn Hill, Inc. help you create an occasion to remember with a private Ellis Island or Liberty Island event. For more information about corporate theme parties in New York City, call (630) 894-5992.
