    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.

    No better wedding venue in New York City

    My husband and I got married at Sound River Studios in October 2018. We were actually the first wedding to book the venue way back in July 2017, though a few others happened before ours. We were so thrilled with our experience, from start to finish. While we worked with both Una and Steve, Steve was our primary contact, and he was a pleasure to work with. He answered all of our questions, responded to all of our e-mails immediately, and was flexible in accommodating all of our needs. Everything on our wedding day came together beautifully. Our guests could not stop talking about the incredible view, and how much space there was to move around. One of the unique things about planning an event at Sound River Studios is it truly is a raw, beautiful blank slate, so you can really tailor it and make it your own. We would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a venue with character, class, and wow-factor. There is really no other venue in New York City quite like Sound River Studios.
