Fun, Unique, Gorgeous
What can we say? We had the most fantastic wedding we could have ever imagined, with all 225 of our friends and family in awe of how beautiful, fun and unique our celebration was. Noel and her team were amazing to work with - both in their organization and "flow" of the wedding, but also in the many original designs they were able to bring to life to make the celebration "ours." A drab hallway was re-purposed into an interesting and mood-setting corridor in just one of many examples of their wizardry. They also worked with us on all the individual designs and elements we wanted to add ourselves. The art factory setting is one-of-a-kind; an industrial chic twinkle-light paradise that will stun your guests. The wonderful different spaces allow for so many different arrangements and activities - around 2am we had people karaoke-ing in one room, dancing in another, an just hanging and talking in a third. Everything went to plan, or better and we can't recommend this venue enough for a fun and unforgettable wedding. Most importantly, the wedding felt like us - the opposite of a cookie-cutter or generic wedding - and our guests felt that too.

The Paradise for Wedding Portraits!
The Art Factory Patterson is the best location if you want something unique and stunning for your wedding. There lots of amazing locations for wedding ceremonies and even more for wedding portraiture. Every corner shouts: " It is ingenious!". The location of the venue is gold as well. You can easily get to the Paterson Waterfalls and enjoy the beauty of nature. I do recommend this venue for a couple with unique vision of their wedding day!Sent on 12/06/2019

This venue offers the below options which may impact pricing:
They are the loveliest people to work with. Creative, fun, organized, and they have incredibly talented vendors that have their own studios in the building. The venue itself is unique and lends itself to a lot of different styles/vibes. Also, significantly more cost-effective than your average NYC wedding.
