Liberty Warehouse

Heather Waraksa

Where: Red Hook

What Vané Loves: If you're looking for a space with breathtaking views of downtown Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty, then consider Liberty Warehouse. It has multiple room sizes to cater to any size event, in addition to details like fireplaces, exposed columns, and westward facing views to capture the sunsets.

What Vané Loves: For you hipsters out there, there's no cooler place to get married than the Wythe Hotel. It has several spaces for ceremonies and receptions of varying sizes, great food catered by their in house restaurant Reynard, and as an added bonus, your guests won't have to go very far to get to their rooms at the end of the night!

The Green Building

Where: Gowanus

What Vané Loves: The Green Building is great if you want to have a vintage, industrial sort of vibe. It has soaring ceilings, an outdoor space, and original exposed brick walls. When done right, the space can be super dramatic.

Smack Mellon

Etienne Frossard

Where: DUMBO

What Vané Loves: With 35-foot-high ceilings and a location right between the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges, Smack Mellon is a great choice for your wedding, especially for those coming from Manhattan, and for taking photos around the neighborhood.

501 Union

Where: Gowanus

What Vané Loves: 501 Union is just one of those quintessential Brooklyn spaces. With beautiful skylights and gorgeous Roll & Hill light fixtures, it's utterly chic in a low-key sort of way.

Where: Prospect Heights

What Vané Loves: If you're going for something more classic, there's no place like the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. By renting either the Palm House or Atrium for your reception, you'll have your pick of a number of different locations for your ceremony or cocktail house. An added bonus: if you get married in the spring the cherry blossoms are amazing here!

Sky Gallery

Where: Gowanus

What Vané Loves: For those looking for more of a gallery-type feel, Sky Gallery offers a raw space with gleaming concrete floors, pristine white-painted brick walls, and space both inside and out.

Brooklyn Winery

Where: Williamsburg

What Vané Loves: This working winery is the perfect spot for oenophiles looking to get hitched. They've got a more rustic decor working for them, in addition to great details like skylights, reclaimed wood, vintage wallpaper, and more.

Where: Around Brooklyn

What Vané Loves: While there are plenty of official event venues scattered around Brooklyn, some couples that are looking for smaller spaces might want to try renting out one of their favorite restaurants. The nice thing with Brooklyn is that plenty of them have backyard spaces and will often accommodate special requests. A few favorites include MyMoon, Colonie, Gran Electrica, French Louie, and Frankies 457.
