Wedding Crashers wedding fair celebrates 10 years with 100 NYC and Hudson Valley vendors

Wedding Crashers, the only wedding fair in NYC that spans two entire venues, returns to Gowanus, Brooklyn on March 17, 2019 with even more tastings, live music, and inspiration to plan an upstate or New York City wedding.
