You may be wondering what makes a restaurant wedding venue different then any other NYC wedding venue. According to our photographers and NYC wedding planners, a lot! While our photographers love shooting at raw wedding venues in Brooklyn like the W Loft or the Green Building, venues like these require couples to bring in their own caterer, tables and chairs, table settings (don’t forget your cutlery) and any other vendor needed for their wedding day..that can all add up pretty fast! Restaurant wedding venues offer an all-inclusive option for couples who want a venue that provides everything they need in one place! Not only do the restaurant wedding venues in Brooklyn provide a fully customizable menu, your reception tables, settings and in some cases décor is provided as well.
You don’t have to sacrifice aesthetic either when booking a restaurant wedding in Brooklyn, our photographers have worked at most of the restaurant wedding venues in Brooklyn and have seen everything from quaint and rustic to expansive and elegant at Brooklyn restaurant wedding venues!
