Address: Studio 450, 450 W 31st Street (The Garment District)
What Makes It So Unique: The trip to 10th Avenue is totally worth it. The all-white venue features stark floors, walls and bathrooms for a space that's perfectly bright and airy. It just goes to show how much you can personalize this venue to fit your taste, whatever it may be. The Studio even gives you a couple of different space options for your ceremony—including a spacious main room that can be closed off for smaller wedding parties. Another is the studio's rooftop terrace—a quintessentially Manhattan space that faces the famed bright red 'New Yorker' sign.
How It's Priced: Starting at $5800
Maximum Guest Capacity: 250
Address: Dumbo Loft, 155 Water Street (DUMBO)
What Makes It So Unique: Whereas tons of other venues have preferred caterers and florists (and may even charge you extra to use professionals that are outside of their network), no suggestions or recommendations are thrown into the mix at Dumbo. Sure, the sheer number of event planners, DJs, and food options that are available to you may be a little daunting without a preferred list. But there's a good chance you'll enjoy the freedom of being able to completely customize the space. A chic outdoor space sits directly outside the venue, with stairs on the side of the loft that lead to an intimate seating area. But be advised: the outdoor space isn't exactly private. You have to go through the city to get permission have your wedding ceremony out there.
How It's Priced: Starting at approximately $2000
Maximum Guest Capacity: 200
Address: The Foundry, 42-38 9th Street (Long Island City)
What Makes It So Unique: One look at the meticulously pruned outdoor reception space behind the facility shows the ridiculous the level of detail that has been put into making the space unique. The stunning views of the Queensboro Bride certainly aren't too shabby, either. Ivy lines the indoor and outdoor perfectly faded brick walls of the space for a natural look that can easily be incorporated into your wedding decor, like Sasha and Oliver did with their ultra-lush, organic wedding on the property. Another awesome feature? The not-quite-rooftop, not-quite-reception room above the main receiving room. It's perfect for late night snacks, s'mores, scotch tastings and a variety of other off-beat activities your guests will love.
How It's Priced: Starting at $6700
Maximum Guest Capacity: 200
Address: Gary's Loft, 28 W 36th St (Midtown)
What Makes It So Unique: Gary's Loft has such a homey feel, it's hard to believe that you're smack dab in the middle of Midtown. One plus-side to the venue's central location: It's unparalleled view of The Empire State Building. While the former garment factory venue boasts breathtaking views and large windows, the city space also features a vintage working kitchen, built-in bookshelves and a spacious living room. So essentially, it's like having your wedding at a rustic, 50s-inspired cabin, only better.
Maximum Guest Capacity: 150
How it's priced: $5600
Address: Tribeca Rooftop, 10 Desbrosses Street (Tribeca)
What Makes It So Unique: This family-centric atmosphere is something Tribeca Rooftop prides itself on (and is a little surprising considering its huge size). The constant attention and hospitality we experienced at Tribeca Rooftop is definitely one of the reasons people return, despite it being one of the more lavish venues on our list. Another, of course, is the view. On a clear day, you can practically see into the office buildings at One World Trade, which is located about 10 minutes away by train. Walk to the other side of the venue and a beautiful view of the Jersey City skyline is suddenly in view. And then of course, to the east, are the magnificent buildings that make up downtown Manhattan. In fact, you can have your ceremony, cocktail hour and reception all in different areas of the room to give each of the photos a different background.
How It's Priced: Starting at $160 per guest (menu, staff, open bar, tables, linens and stage lighting included)
Maximum Guest Capacity: 400
Smack Mellon Gallery
Address: Smack Mellon, 92 Plymouth Street (DUMBO)
What Makes It So Unique: With towering windows and plenty of natural light, this coveted Brooklyn warehouse is located right on the water. Aside from 40-foot stone beams and a to-die-for location, Smack Mellon becomes that much more unique since the venue is normally used as an art exhibition space. Created in 2000, Smack Mellon gives up-and-coming mid-career and female artists the opportunity to showcase their work in a highly-acclaimed gallery; making for an event space art-afficionados will love. Be warned though — the space doesn't come equipped with air conditioning; so August brides may want to avoid it altogether.
How It's Priced: starting at $4000
Maximum Guest Capacity: 75
Address: Greenpoint Loft, 67 West St (Greenpoint)
What Makes It So Unique: Despite all the industrial venues on this list, it really doesn't get any more raw than the the 5,000-square-feet of space that is Greenpoint Loft. Though the owners have only been hosting weddings in the open venue since 2013, the historic loft was built in the early 20th century and served as a metal factory before it became the event space that it is today. Original wood pillars and rafters give the space an airy feel, while brick walls make foran raw space that's super-customizable. Our favorite detail: The loft's stunning view of the Manhattan skyline along with original wood floors!
How It's Priced: starting at 4000
Maximum Guest Occupancy: 245
Midtown Loft and Terrace
Address: Midtown Loft and Terrace, 267 5th Ave (Midtown)
What Makes It So Unique: The Midtown Loft and Terrace is yet another blank space perfect for creating a customized reception. The family-owned, Old World-inspired space features large glass windows and vintage furniture along with an impressive roof that boasts views of midtown Manhattan. What's more, the terrace features pretty potted plants and vines throughout the outdoor space along with a cozy wood-and-brick lounge that's the ultimate hang out spot post-ceremony.
How It's Priced: starting at $5000
Maximum Guest Occupancy: 300
The Green Building
Address: The Green Building, 452 Union St (Caroll Gardens)
What Makes It So Unique: Brick and wood details make this warehouse a favorite among in-the-know couples; plus the space is large enough to hold up to 225 guests and features gilded decor like gold vintage chandeliers. Another sweet detail? The outdoor space is adjacent to the venue's main room, so you can easily create two separate celebration spaces that don't feel too disconnected. There's even enough outdoor space to accommodate several food trucks, so you can treat guests to a unique, Smorgasburg-type reception.
How It's Priced: Starting at $3000
