Just Go Get Married at Katz’s Deli

Posted on: July 28th, 2021 at 5:05 am by

Going to the … deli … and we’re going to get married…

The Lower East Side’s iconic Katz’s Deli has joined forces with Williamsburg wedding chapel, Sweet Hearts, to give couples a chance to tie the knot inside the 133-year-old eatery. With a hefty side of pastrami, of course.

The $2,500 wedding package includes an officiant and witness, photography courtesy of the Edward Winter Photography team, and, naturally, platters of Katz’s hand-carved pastrami and corned beef. The lovestruck can secure a 75-minute spot for August 28, and bring up to six guests. Newlyweds will also receive a “honeymoon-in-a-bag,” filled with swag from Sweet Hearts and Katz’s.

The overall goal of Sweet Hearts is to offer “a safe, inclusive location for anyone wanting to confess their admiration.” In an interview with Time Out, Julie Guinta said, “What we hope to achieve with these pop-ups is to allow couples affordable access to get hitched in iconic New York City locations that normally wouldn’t be made available to them. Where better to start than at Katz’s Deli? It has all of the energy, sights, sounds, smells, and tastes that make this the greatest city in the world.”

Here’s hoping the couples have a When Harry Met Sally kind of happy ending.
