Brooklyn New York is a beautiful place to be married, regardless of the season. It is also home to many special venues to have your wedding or reception, that will make your wedding photos everything you ever dreamed they could be and so much more. Instead of a hotel where many wedding receptions take place, however, we have comprised a list of five unique and interesting venues that we've photographed in over the years that we think you should consider when getting married (and why!).
Music Hall of Williamsburg
Considered 'industrial chic', the Music Hall of Williamsburg is a tri-level venue for seating for 150 of your closest friends and family. If music is an important thing to you or your fiancee, you may find that this hall is exactly what you are looking for when it comes to customizing the style of your wedding. Any music lover will find themselves comfortably at home here and the levels offer different and unique decor for the backdrop of photos.
Brooklyn Botanical Gardens
The beautiful dome fills the gardens with natural light as flowers and plants act as your decor. With seated room up to 275 this is one of the larger unique venues in Brooklyn and with all of the natural light, wedding photos in the botanical gardens will look nothing less than absolutely stunning. Use the botanical gardens for a ceremony, reception, or both.
An elegant, sophisticated location, the Brooklyn Winery is an ideal location for a couple who is looking for a venue with a vintage flair. Have wine barrels as the backdrop to your wedding photos and decorating the walls as your wedding guests dine, or choose the winery for your ceremony. Please note that this location has a minimum guest count in effect.
Brooklyn Academy of Music
Only available for bookings in July, the Brooklyn Academy of Music is truly a treat for those who are able to get a booking. Available for seated dinners for up to 250 guests, this charming and beautifully styled building will leave your guests at awe and give you a stunning backdrop for your photographs. You can choose to have both ceremony and reception at this location.
The Green Building
Thinking of something elegantly rustic? Look no further than The Green Building, a former brass foundry. Exposed brick walls and beams with elegant hanging chandeliers make up this interesting venue, and it can seat 160 people. For a unique touch to your photos, consider also using the 'speakeasy', a hidden door located within the coat check room leads to two well appointed 1920's inspired rooms that can be used as a change room, a VIP bar or for photos.
