Beautiful space with an amazing view of the NYC skyline
During the venue search, we probably looked at around 15 different places. Sound River Studios was the final place that we checked out and we fell in love with the space immediately. The view of the city skyline is spectacular. It looks amazing during the day and continues to look better as the sun goes down. It's the perfect backdrop for pictures. They have their own private dock in their outdoor area which you can use. We did not end up using it but we did strongly consider making a grand entrance by boat haha. The inside is an empty space for you to design whatever look you want. We especially loved the high ceiling and natural light. Lastly, we worked with Una throughout the process. We originally planned to have our wedding in 2020 but had to postpone due to the pandemic. Una was very helpful making sure the transition to the new date was smooth. No issues with communication whatsoever.Sent on 06/06/2021

Jaw Dropping Venue!
We just got married at Sound River Studios on May 1st, 2021. This was the best decision we have ever made. We picked Sound River back in 2019 when we were originally planning our wedding. Then the pandemic hit and Una from the management team was able to guide us and stick with us through 3 postponed wedding dates. We could not have had our dream wedding if it was not for all the help we received from Una at Sound River and we absolutely loved the way our wedding turned out when we were finally able to have our wedding. If you are looking for a venue with a WOW factor, this is the VENUE for you!!!!!! The Sound River Studios team is so helpful and the location is jaw dropping. Our guest could not have been more excited to come to take pictures and have the party of our lives. Between the view and the open space. This is the perfect "modern/warehouse" location for your wedding if you are not interested in the catering hall vibe. I cannot wait to see our professional pictures because even the photos from our guests iPhones were amazing. This venue is spectacular, Highly recommendSent on 05/07/2021

My husband and I got married at Sound River Studios in October 2019 and could not have been happier!! We wanted a modern, fun venue in NYC to give our guests (most traveled from out of state) a great NY vibe. And Sound River Studios absolutely delivered.Sent on 11/23/2019
We loved the outdoor patio for cocktail hour and used the inside space for the ceremony, dinner, and dancing. All of our guests raved about the incredible view and modern vibe.
The entire team is fabulous to work with -- responsive, helpful, kind, and creative! Highly recommend to anyone looking for a stunning venue!
