Bride & Blossom has had the opportunity to work at the most iconic wedding venues in New York City. Out of all the decisions a bride must make, choosing where she will get married is one of the most important. And nothing brings us more joy than collaborating with a bride to transform a space into a beautiful, wedding-perfect setting that expresses her style, personality, and love.
We are excited to announce the Venues We Love series, weekly blog posts profiling the top places for a wedding in the NYC area. First up is The Liberty Warehouse in Red Hook, Brooklyn.
What makes the Liberty Warehouse so special is its history, charm, and versatility. Located on Pier 41, the building dates to the 1850s and offers sweeping views of the New York Harbor and the Statue of Liberty. Couples can plan their wedding here around the use of multiple rooms and a waterside promenade. They have the option of having an outdoor ceremony on the promenade or a more intimate ceremony in a room inside. Reserved for receptions, the main, large room has floor-to-ceiling windows, which flood the space with natural light. Raw wooden beams and exposed brick add to the interior’s relaxed and inviting atmosphere.
The Liberty Warehouse strikes the perfect balance between beauty and comfort. The abundance of natural light and wood enhance floral design and styling to stunning effect. Every bride is unique. And we love how the look and feel of this venue can go from classic elegance to vintage romance to urban garden.
Chuppahs and Wedding Arches: A focal point of the ceremony, chuppahs and wedding arches are a statement made by the couple as they enter their new life together. For outdoor ceremonies at The Liberty Warehouse, these symbolic structures are set up at the promenade’s apex where guests look on as the couple exchanges vows against a picturesque backdrop. A lovely chuppah made of white birch branches adorned with yellow and white blooms and lush greenery expresses nature’s splendor. A floral arch of pink and white roses encapsulates a modern day fairy tale. A small, indoor ceremony showcases a chuppah embellished with a romantic palette of red, pink, and white flowers with greenery accents.
Ambiance: One of the most distinct aspects of The Liberty Warehouse is how the interior’s mood changes, depending on the season and time of day. During a ceremony and reception, it’s remarkable to watch as the dazzling sunlight gives way to evening’s soft, golden glow.
Table Décor: The venue’s adaptability offers creative room to play. This means table décor can be expressive and full of sentiment. High, round centerpieces exude sophisticated elegance. Medium size arrangements mixing colorful blossoms with fresh greenery radiate an air of natural grace. Low centerpieces of vibrant, seasonal flowers create a garden of enchantment for guests to enjoy.
Unique Features: The Liberty Warehouse is marked with unique features that can be worked into wedding décor and activities. The ladies can look forward to getting ready in a bridal party suite, which is fully equipped and perfect for memorable “before” photos. For outdoor ceremonies, adorn the white chairs that line the aisle with gorgeous floral accents. During indoor ceremonies, illuminate the aisle with pillar candles.
The Liberty Warehouse has much to offer a bride and groom on their special day. The history and beauty make it one of New York City’s most beloved wedding venues. And let’s not forget about those views! Just think about how stunning your wedding photos will be!
