NYC City Hall is one of my favorite wedding venues in the world. Just for the people watching it gets a ten from me. Perhaps you’re a last minute planner, perhaps you go down to the molecule on a spread sheet. In any case, the whole process is very civilized. On the day, after arrival and check in, you get your number, as in a deli-style number. Then, simply pay the fee to the cashier; it’s approximately $30USD. Immediately after your number is called, you sit in the antechamber for the chapel. Once you’re in that room it won’t be long.
