Welcome back for Part 2 in our 3 Part series on absolutely unique wedding venues in NYC

The first installment took a look at the gorgeous Beekman building and the dramatic and theatrical Angel Orensanz Foundation, so we know that they will be hard to top, but we will try our best! 

So without further ado, here are two more NYC wedding venues that are absolutely in a class of their own, and will definitely lend a not so subtle pop of drama to your day! But, don’t worry, it’s a good kind of drama!

Hall des Lumières

What could be more romantic than celebrating your nuptials amongst the larger than life projection mapping of Gustav Klimts’ The Kiss?! The Hall des Lumières Gold In Motion exhibit does not disappoint! It is a multi-sensory celebration of Klimt’s most iconic work, that uses unique, cutting-edge mapping technology, along with an elegant soundtrack and historic location to transport you to a world of love and emotion, gold and color.

Now, here’s a little about the history of the building. The Irish Emigrant Society, inaugurated the Emigrant Industrial Savings Bank in 1850 to protect the money of Irish immigrants. And, the Bank Building as it stands today – developed between 1902-1912 – at 49 Chambers Street was actually the first skyscraper in New York City in the Beaux-Arts style, and was designed by the esteemed Raymond F. Almirall. Almirall chose an H-shaped plan when he designed the 187 feet tall (57 meters) and 14 stories high building, which allowed natural light to flood the rooms and from the outside gives the impression that the building has a mirrored pair of towers. 

The venue is 30,000 square feet and spans two levels. The main level features 40-foot-high ceilings and custom 100+ year old laylights. Meanwhile, the lower level has a more raw

aesthetic and provides access to a historic bank vault, as well as architectural details such as the elaborate stone work surrounding the Hall, and the marble bank tellers’ registers, in an effort to protect the integrity and history of the space.

And, as a final note, the Hall des Lumières is able to host groups as small as 100, seated receptions for 250+, and even cocktail receptions for up to 1000 guests. Talk about versatility!

Brooklyn Botanic Garden

Tucked away in one of the biggest and busiest cities of the world, Brooklyn Botanic Garden is a beautiful oasis of trees, flower borders, and pastoral lawns, also known as, the perfect place for your wedding or celebration. Whether you’re interested in a gorgeous morning, or afternoon ceremony among the seasonal blossoms or a dance party indoors or beneath the stars, you’ll find the Garden has everything you could want for hosting an unforgettable once-in-a-lifetime event

And, when it comes to reception spaces, The Lillian and Amy Goldman Atrium is absolutely stunning, as well as being an ecologically sustainable event space! Imagine celebrating beneath a gorgeous living roof of native grasses and wildflowers, with incredible floor-to-ceiling glass walls that overlook the Garden’s Cherry Esplanade and outdoor terrace, creating a space that’s both intimate and luxurious for weddings and other events up to 125 guests. 

Moving on from there, and boasting an entirely different vibe, is the Brooklyn Botanic Garden’s Palm House. This venue offers a gorgeous Garden setting for your ceremony, along with an outdoor terrace that’s perfect for cocktails, and, of course, the exquisitely designed glass-walled Palm House for your reception and party. The Palm House can accommodate up to 250 seated guests, so don’t fret, you can still host quite a large wedding celebration at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden!
