We were so lucky to have our wedding celebration at this gorgeous, unique space. Two weeks later we are still hearing from our guests that the beauty of the huge, open loft and the majesty of the sunset over the Manhattan skyline made the event unforgettable.
The soaring ceilings and light-filled, industrial white warehouse space steal the show, so we were able to keep our decorations elegant, minimal and inexpensive. Una, the space's incredible event planner, suggested one long table down the middle of the space for our 75 or so guests. The simplicity of the table and elegant centerpieces that Una sourced designed made a huge visual statement.
I can't say enough about how helpful Una was. We planned our event on very short noticed and she was completely unfazed, able to design and coordinate all of the party essentials within a couple of weeks. She kept the event on track, setting up the tables and place settings, and thinking of small things that I never would have but that made the day special, like preparing for the champagne toast and reminding me to tell guests to take home the beautiful centerpieces. In the days leading up to the celebration she accommodated last-minute changes to the chair and table rental order when our guest number changed, Through it all she never seemed hurried or frazzled. Oona is someone you want helping you plan your event!

The best wedding with unforgettable view
We had our wedding at Sound River Studios on 11/3/2018 and we couldn't be happier with it. All night and ever since, we have been hearing about what a special venue it was. Truly, the view and location cannot be beat. We both have very large families and it was a challenge to find a space in NYC that we actually liked but was spacious enough to accommodate everyone we wanted to invite and as soon as we saw it, we knew that SRS was it. Moreover, although they definitely know what they're doing and have many events a month there, we never felt like we were just another wedding. Una gave us individualized attention and felt like our friend by the time the wedding day came. On the day, she helped us from start to finish and we really couldn't have done it without her. We wanted our wedding day to be personal and unique to us and Sound River Studios allowed us to do that and within our budget - it is truly a hidden gem for NYC weddings and I absolutely can't recommend it enough.

We recently got married at Sound River Studios and it could not have been any more perfect. The space was absolutely stunning and that amazing skyline view just got more and more beautiful as the night went on.
Most of our guests were international visitors and were completely blown away. They've not stopped talking about it since. They couldn't believe that a place like it existed in New York.
The team at Sound River were incredibly helpful and accommodating in the lead-up and on the day.
One extra note: We hired a New York Water Taxi to pick up all of our guests and deliver them to the pier and it was the most exciting way to arrive.
