Urban Revitalization Vibe was perfect for us
We LOVED having our wedding in SmARTspace. It's certainly a DIY space, and they made that clear from the start. That also meant bringing in our own caterers, decor, etc. It was almost certainly more coordination on our end, but we were really happy to be able to bring our own vendor team together. The space itself looked fantastic. We had about 225 guests and used long 8' rectangular tables. There was still plenty of room for a high table, dance floor, food tables, cake table, DJ booth, and Kids drawing area. We particularly worked on lighting and did simple table decor which looked beautiful as the evening skies darkened.Sent on 01/20/2020

Amazing Reception at smART Space
We got married at 78th St Studios and it could not have been a better choice. Our ceremony and cocktail hour were in HEDGE Gallery and the reception was in smART Space. Hilary was amazing. She listened to what we wanted, was easy to get a hold of, had great ideas. She and her team were extremely helpful, and with her guidance our wedding ended up being gorgeous. Hilary made wedding planning easy. The venue is unique, and cool and so many of our guests complimented us on our choice and said that they had never been to a wedding like ours. We had an amazing time and are so happy with our decision. We had 110 guests and that was the perfect amount of space- although smART Space is larger and could have accommodated more people we did not feel as if the space was too big. 110 was the perfect size for our ceremony and cocktail hour in HEDGE.Sent on 07/21/2019

Great and Unique Venue
78th Street was perfect for us. The pricing was reasonable and it is an extremely unique venue. We had compliments all night from our guests how they loved seeing the artwork and had never been to a wedding reception like this before. We were able to hire Hilary and Adam as wedding planners to help coordinate everything and make it go as smoothly as possible, which they did a great job of doing. They made the day and planning as stress free as possible. They seem to truly enjoy their job. Hilary was even able to do our flowers for us and helped design the whole space to our wants and needs. We couldn't recommend hiring them enough, they were amazing and easy to work with.Sent on 03/13/2019
