I am so happy I picked the Prospect Park Picnic House for my Wedding!
Christina the coordinator was completely on top of EVERYTHING. Responsive, flexible, amazing.

The staff was fantastic, and the venue was gorgeous!

This venue is very DIY, so it is more work than having a wedding at a place that will provide you with everything but it allows you to really create the day you imagined in your head.
I did not want a cookie cutter wedding in anyway, and the Picnic House allowed me to really make my day feel like it fit my husband and I perfectly.

You have to pick between a hand full of food vendors and I think that is a great idea because the vendors know all the challenges of the venue and work to make it perfect. I used Bon Soir and it was unbelievable how amazing they were. I will write a separate review on them, because i could write for hours about how they rocked it out of the park.

The Picnic House was perfect
Everything went exactly as I had wished and I could not recommend this venue more.

This venue is simply amazing. It transformed a simple idea for a wedding into a magical one, and we had just sterling service from everyone involved. It helps that you're always the only one to have your venue for that day, and there is so much wonderful stuff you can do with the space.

Everyone at the Prospect Park Alliance is great!

The Picnic House was the most wonderful, perfect venue for our winter wedding. The staff was tremendously nice, the venue gorgeous (brick! working fireplace! windows! light! piano! huge views of the park!) and the association with Prospect Park so great. We could not have imagined a better place to have our wedding. Sarah, Christina, Will, and their staff made sure that we had a wonderful day! Thank you so much, Picnic House--we will always treasure you for being the site of our wedding!

Our wedding on 10/22/11 was held at the Picnic House, and we couldn't have been happier! One of the most reasonably priced venues in New York City is also one of the most wonderful - beautiful, warm, welcoming. The staff was great!

The boathouse of prospect park is a turn of the 20th century Art Nouveau building, very dramatic and perfect for weddings. It overlooks a beautiful lake, and so you can hold your ceremony in front of the water. The weather was great, and so we could have the entire wedding processional outside, and then move inside for the dinner. I wouldn't have chosen another location--my husband and I met in prospect Park, so it was a very fitting and romantic occasion. The people who work at the Boathouse are very helpful in making sure that everything goes off without a hitch. One limitation, though, is the number of people--no more than 80, as the space is limited on the inside.

We knew we wanted to get married in the park and, of the two venues within the park, the picnic house can accommodate more guests. In the end, we are glad we went with the picnic house for several reasons. First, the list of approved caterers for the picnic house includes caterers that can accommodate a wide range of budgets, whereas there was exclusively one (expensive!) required caterer for the other venue within the park. Second, the events coordinator for the picnic house, Christina, was great to work with. She answered all my questions promptly and made sure specific requests (i.e., lighting the fireplace, hanging signs in the park to direct guests to the picnic house, etc.) were taken care of. Finally, we got a lot of compliments about the uniqueness of our venue.

Picnic House was amazing! We had a very action packed wedding complete with with Buddhist ceremonies, officiant ceremony and a rock 'n roll performance at the end of the night. It was all possible at the Picnic House. We had great weather on our wedding day it was great to have the chance to get married outside in Prospect Park. Also, my contact there Christina was very helpful and responsive. We could not have done it without her.
