If there's one type of wedding venue that manages to be the most versatile backdrop for ANY kind of wedding, it's a rad factory space. Exposed brick, vintage industrial chic lighting, kick-ass props, high ceilings, and GORGEOUS windows… give me that lofty goodness any day. So when I spied the space at our venue partner, ART FACTORY STUDIOS, I.was.blown.away. It's simply fabulous.

ART FACTORY STUDIOS is housed within hundreds of thousands of square feet of inspiring historic mill building complexes adjacent to the new Paterson Great Falls National Historic Park, New Jersey, twelve miles from Manhattan. They provide a chic-as-hell backdrop for celebrity and brand photo shoots, so you know they're used to making things look stunning. And you can totally benefit from all that serious business experience.

Got any examples?

Hell yes I do! Check out this wedding with papel picado, glowing candles, moss and hanging branches, and even hanging terrariums! ART FACTORY STUDIOS offered the perfect canvas for this gorgeous wedding.

This industrial chic meets boho wedding had industrial details and textures including cement cinder blocks, marble place cards, and antique glass light bulbs, all softened by gorgeous greenery and flowers. My heart!

At ART FACTORY STUDIOS, you're not constrained by the usual cookie-cutter options at banquet halls. It serves as a blank slate to totally customize the experience and the look. You can craft it from the ground up, from decor to food to lighting.

Here's how they describe it:

With vaulted ceilings and 20 foot factory windows, cobblestones and secret passageways, exposed timbers and deck gardens, ART FACTORY STUDIOS oozes historic charm. Located adjacent to the The Great Falls National Historic Park in the heart of the Historic District, ART FACTORY STUDIOS is at the nexus of Paterson's arts and cultural rejuvenation.

Home to working artists and craftspeople, with on-going curated gallery exhibitions, ART FACTORY STUDIOS is the perfect backdrop for your romantic fairy-tale design table, hand-written notes, cards and signs, and tastefully curated food tables and photo ops. Low-lit, centuries-old brick walls with gradually exaggerated texture allows just enough drama to keep guests amused… and your photographs completely unique. Your wedding becomes a work of art: individual, timeless, moving.

  1. Oh my goodness! I've been reading Offbeat Bride for years (i.e. even before I was engaged!) and even following Ariel on Instagram. ON SUNDAY, I WENT TO GO SEE THIS VENUE! We went from "meh, we probably won't really do anything" to "OMG we just may have a wedding" that afternoon! Now I'm a little nervous they're being featured in more places…at least before I book! Thanks for featuring this awesome spot though, seriously :).
